We are at WAR! It’s official & has been, since man fell from grace after Adam’s sin. The question is ‘what is your battle plan?’
Are you aware that behind the scenes in the atmospheric Heavens, there is a cosmic war ensuing between Christ & the anti-Christ; Light & darkness, indeed good & bad? The reason, Lucifer ‘the son of the morning’ who was an angelic being, created by God, wanted to BE God. The Bible speaks of the ‘mystery of iniquity’ which is that, God gave the angelic beings a ‘choice‘ & lucifer and a 1/3 of his demonic Angels chose to oppose God to try and be Ruler of Heaven. Satan is an imposter of God!
Have you ever thought of why we experience the issues in life that we do? How every time we move forward its like we are being held or take steps back? Like we are being sabotaged? We are plain sailing then sickness hits your child; wife says she no longer has feelings for you”; children begin acting up; serving God seems like hard work & someone is always being chosen “over you..”; employers not happy with your standard of work despite you giving more than ever before; car breaks down; finances gets holes in them; your wells that were healthy suddenly becomes stagnant or are ‘blocked’ & not producing clean, flowing water; The storm begin to rage? Satan is at work & is on assignment to stop us entering into The Heavenly Rest, that Paradise, with Our Father Jesus Christ to reign with Him forever! The enemy is trying to set us up! But don’t “curse God & die..” as Job’s wife told him unwisely to do! Jesus is in the boat with you. See how, see why;
‘Isaiah 14’ How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High??
Again the nature of Satan and how he fell is spoken in ‘Ezekiel 28’ “He was the perfect being full or wisdom & knowledge”
Satan was an anointed cherub. Called ‘leader of the host’ of worship & praise; The scripture continues; “You were perfect in your ways until Unrighteousness was found in you..” He is a dark angelic being. The dark and devilish spiritual being. We MUST know the enemy & be prepared. Satan is PERSONIFIED as evil. He looks for a ‘foothold to create a stronghold’ in us or in situation to effect us! Our primary struggle & issue, is the satanic, powerful force, not addiction, not our families, not depression or sickness – it is he is the force BEHIND all these things and he is doing it now because he knows Jesus is coming back soon, not only to deal with him but to take His Church, those who chose to follow Jesus in truth, up to Heaven! Revelation 12:12 ‘Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.’
Paul describes Satan as the ‘Angel of light’. He is a negative powerful angelic being but He has NO DOMINION OVER GOD. This is confirmed in Isaiah 12:15 “Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit!” GOD IS IN CONTROL!
Think of your Battle Plan; worship & praise & obedience to the will of God??! Satan hates when we praise God as he was the Angel in charge of worship & praise & he played beautiful music in heaven. He was stripped of this role when he was ‘cast out’ of Heaven by God because he chose to be disobedient! Thus he was immediately EVICTED! And now he seeks to imitate God by taking up residence, negatively & by force, in our minds, hearts & bodies by plaguing us with fear, sickness & darkness. He seeks for us to be disobedience and dishonour God. He detests when we worship because he knows with worship, true obedience & praise comes the blessings from God. With disobedience & dishonour, comes the curses spoken of in Deuteronomy 28:18 and satan aims always, to distracts us from seeking God FIRST to facilitate disobedience & he tries to steal our joy! Don’t allow him! Don’t entertain him & don’t give him access, stay on track & keep your focus upwards on Jesus! Call on Jesus’ name to evict the presence of the enemy from whatever area of your life he stalks you in! Stand still & see the salvation of The Lord, there IS a King in you. If you have not already chose to follow Jesus Christ of Nazareth, The Godman, Our Saviour then I encourage you to do so soon. The dispensation (the time) of grace is coming to a close. Jesus IS coming back again Revelation 12:12. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them
When Jesus died on the cross “He cried It Is Finished!”- everything we would EVER face in our lives because of the enemy satan, every single pain, has been dealt with by the shedding of Jesus’ blood! When he was buried, all hell – Satan & his demonic forces- celebrated “it’s a party over here!!” He thought he had won But… ON THE 3RD DAY JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD TRIUMPHANTLY ! AS HE SAID HE WOULD! AMEN! Sickness ran, depression ran, adultery ran, addiction ran, conflict ran, persecution ran, hatred ran, mental illness ran, financial distress ran, bitterness ran, lies ran & fear ran! JESUS DESTROYED THEM ALL! He is THE Omnipotent, Omniscient ALL powerful, ALL knowing, EVER PRESENT GOD??
We are NO match for Satan of ourselves BUT we fight FROM our VICTORY in Jesus Christ the victory that came from JESUS rising from the dead & TAKING IT BY FORCE, taking back the keys to death & hell!!! Matthew 11:12″And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force…” The Greek for ‘suffer violence’ is ‘BIAZETAI‘- ‘to force’, ‘to come with violence’, ‘to crowd into’!! Jesus TOOK our deliverance! And GAVE His life for our redemption, amen.
Join me for Part 2: It focuses on walking in the strategic plan &WHO leads us on the battlefield. Remember “our weapons of warfare are not carnal but spiritual!” Be so very blessed this week & beyond beautiful soldier of Jesus & know your life strategy, your battle plan, just like a warrior knows theirs. We are ‘the apple of His eye’ He loves us desperately. He is always with us. So until we next meet, God be with you,
