IF SATAN IS WINNING THE WAR AGAINST THE BODY OF CHRIST, IT IS BECAUSE THE CHILDREN OF GOD ARE NOT USING THE POWER AND AUTHORITY I HAVE PLACED IN THEIR HANDS. YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM TO “BIND” SATAN AND “LOOSE” HIS HOLD UPON THE CHILDREN OF GOD, BUT IT IS OBVIOUS THAT, ON THE WHOLE, SATAN HAS A FREE HAND. IF THE BODY OF CHRIST WERE USING THE KEYS AGAINST EVIL, PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS WOULD BE MORE CONFINED. SATAN IS VERY ACTIVE IN THE BODY OF CHRIST, AND I AM GOING TO BRING PURIFICATION TO MY BODY. WHEN YOU STAND BY AND DO NOT CALL FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION AND “BIND AND LOOSE” IN CIRCUMSTANCES BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES, YOU ARE ALLOWING SATAN TO CONTAMINATE THE BODY OF CHRIST WITHOUT ANY DIVINE RESISTANCE. WHEN YOU FAIL TO INTERCEDE, ARE YOU NOT SINNING AGAINST ME? YOU ARE FAILING TO HINDER AND DESTROY SATAN’S WORKS. “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:18-20).
THROUGH YOUR EFFECTIVE FERVENT PRAYERS, I HAVE GIVEN YOU THE EARTHLY JOB OF PROTECTING MY KINGDOM, AND DELIVERING MY CHILDREN FROM SATAN’S BONDAGE. YOU ARE CALLED TO BRING THE WORKS OF SATAN TO NOUGHT! IS IT LOVE WHEN YOU SEE YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS BEING DESTROYED, AND YOU DO NOT BIND SATAN’S WORKS NOR SEEK RELEASE OF HIS CAPTIVES? OFTEN YOU ARE ASKING ME TO DO THE THINGS I HAVE EMPOWERED YOU TO DO IN MY NAME. I HAVE SENT MY HOLY SPIRIT AND HAVE GIVEN YOU EVERY SPIRITUAL TOOL TO STOP SATAN’S INROADS INTO MY KINGDOM AND THE POWER TO SET HIS CAPTIVES FREE. MY HOLY SPIRIT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO YOU TO TEACH AND LEAD YOU IN WARFARE AGAINST THE INFILTRATION OF SIN INTO MY BODY. “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19).
YOU OFTEN OFFER ME PRAYERS BUT FAIL TO ASK ME FOR MY SPIRIT OF EMPOWERMENT TO ANOINT YOUR WORKS FOR ME. IF YOU ASK, MY SPIRIT WILL DIRECT AND WORD YOUR PRAYERS IN CONFORMITY TO MY PURPOSE AND WILL. AN ANOINTED PRAYER IS POWERFUL AND BRINGS FORTH MIRACLES OF CHANGE IN THE SITUATIONS YOU PRAY FOR. OFTEN YOU OFFER ME PLATITUDES (DULL OR TRITE WORDS) THAT ARE MEANINGLESS IN THE SCOPE OF THE WAR AGAINST SATAN. THEN YOU ASK ME “WHY” SATAN IS WINNING THE WAR? MY WORD INSTRUCTS YOU TO BE SERIOUS AND TO WATCH OVER MY KINGDOM, FOR SATAN IS CONSTANTLY ACTIVE AGAINST MY PEOPLE. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
IN MANY CASES YOUR HEART IS FAR FROM ME WHEN YOU PRAY BECAUSE YOUR PRAYERS ARE SIMPLY A HABIT AND A DUTY. YOU ARE DOING WHAT YOU THINK YOU OUGHT TO DO (PRAY) INSTEAD OF SEEKING THE MIND OF GOD. YOU DO NOT ASK ME FOR THE BURDEN OF MY SPIRIT AND THE NEEDS OF MY BODY, BUT YOU PROCEED TO PRAY WITHOUT MY WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE NEEDS OF MY KINGDOM AND MY PEOPLE. THROUGH SPIRITUAL INTERCESSION YOU INTERPOSE YOURSELF ON BE-HALF OF SOMEONE OR SOME CAUSE. YOU COULD HELP TO WIN THIS WAR AGAINST SIN IF YOU TRULY UNDERSTOOD THE EFFICACY AND POWER OF PRAYER. “… For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” (John 3:8).
IF YOU ASK ME FOR MY WISDOM AND PURPOSES, MY HOLY SPIRIT WILL GIVE YOU PROTECTIVE COVERING AND OVER-COMING POWER. MY SPIRIT KNOWS EVERY SECRET OF SATAN AND EVERY DEVICE HE USES TO BRING INTO CAPTIVITY AND DESTROY MY PEOPLE. YOU CAN ONLY LEARN THE HIDDEN SECRETS , AND HOW TO WAGE THE WAR THROUGH MY SPIRIT. IT IS MY CHILDREN’S CALLING TO “OVERCOME” SATAN AND BRING ABOUT HIS DEFEAT. HAVE WE BROUGHT TO THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD AND THOSE IN THE BODY OF CHRIST THE DIVINE HELP OF GOD THROUGH PRAYER AND INTERCESSION? IT IS ONLY THROUGH PRAYER AND THE POWER OF MY SPIRIT THAT THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD AND THOSE OF THE BODY OF CHRIST WILL EVER SEE THE DIVINE POWER OF GOD. WITHOUT EXAMPLES OF MY INTERVENTION AND POWER, MOST WILL NOT BELIEVE. YOU MUST “ASK” TO RECEIVE, “SEEK” TO FIND, AND “KNOCK” UNTIL THE POWER OF GOD WILL BE MANIFEST THROUGH YOU.
LUKEWARMNESS AND A LACK OF FAITH AND BELIEF IN THE NECESSITY FOR GOD’S INTERVENTION IN THE AFFAIRS OF MAN TURNS SATAN LOOSE TO WORK HIS EVIL! IF YOUR HOUSE AND YOUR LIFE ARE BEING BROKEN INTO BY THE THIEF (SATAN) YOU HAD BETTER CRY OUT FOR HELP TO THE “ONLY ONE THAT IS ALL-POWERFUL!! HAS YOUR FAITH TURNED TO ACCEPTANCE OF THE “STATUS QUO?” AND IN YOUR SPIRIT YOU ARE SAYING “WHAT WILL BE, WILL BE”? NO! YOUR GOD IS IN CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE, AND YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THE WORLDLY FLOW OF EVIL! PRAYERLESSNESS PRODUCES APATHY, LUKEWARMNESS, AND OPENS THE DOOR FOR SATAN TO COME IN AND “ROB” YOU OF YOUR BLESSINGS AND GOD’S PERFECT PURPOSES FOR YOU. MANY ARE SITTING IDLY BY AND ALLOWING SATAN TO STEAL, DECEIVE, LIE, KILL, AND DESTROY THE GIFTS, BLESSINGS, AND OPPORTUNITIES GIVEN TO YOU THROUGH MY SPIRIT. “And Simon Peter answered and said, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God’” (Matthew 16:16). “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18).
CHRIST JESUS IS YOUR ROCK, AND THROUGH HIM YOU CAN OVERCOME ALL THE FIERY DARTS AND WORKS OF SATAN. YOU WILL NOT BE MOVED OR SHAKEN WHEN YOUR TOTAL FAITH IS IN GOD, AND MY WORD, AND PROMISES. “For I proclaim the name of the LORD: ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He” (Deuteronomy 32:3). “And all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ” (1 Corinthians 10:4).
HE GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST MY CHILDREN–THAT IS, IF MY CHILDREN RISE UP AND USE THEIR POWER, AUTHORITY, AND THE “ALL-POWERFUL” WORD AGAINST SATAN AND HIS MINIONS. YOU ARE TO “OVERCOME SATAN, AND SIN, AND DEFEAT YOUR ENEMIES.”
THE POWER TO OVERCOME SATAN AND ALL OF HIS PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS IS YOURS. THE ONLY VICTORY OVER SATAN IS THROUGH YOUR FAITH IN GOD, THE BLOOD OF CHRIST APPLIED TO YOUR LIFE, AND THE WORDS YOU SPEAK (YOUR TESTIMONY). “Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.’ And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven’” (Luke 10:17-18). “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5). WE ARE COMMANDED TO PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD IN EPHESIANS 6:11-17.
IF YOU ARE NOT OVERCOMING AND WINNING THE WAR SATAN IS WAGING AGAINST YOU, IT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE SITTING STILL AND NOT USING YOUR AUTHORITY. MANY OF YOU “HAVE NOT” BECAUSE YOU “ASKED NOT” OR BECAUSE YOU ASK “AMISS” TO CONSUME IT ON YOUR OWN FLESH. YOU ARE TO DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!
YOU ARE BEING TRAINED RIGHT NOW FOR YOUR ETERNAL WORK DURING THE MILLENNIUM AND THROUGH ALL ETERNITY WHEN YOU WILL RULE AND REIGN WITH CHRIST! YOU MUST FULLY UNDERSTAND THE ABSOLUTE HOLINESS OF GOD AND BELIEVE THAT I HAVE “ALL POWER” OVER ALL I CREATED. YOU MUST KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT THROUGH CHRIST, YOU HAVE POWER OVER SATAN, AND HAVE OVERCOMING POWER OVER THE SINS THAT BESET YOU. YOUR TIME ON EARTH IS YOUR TRAINING PERIOD WITH GOD. TO BE A “RULER” WITH CHRIST, YOU MUST BE PERFECTED TO MEET THE “HIGH CALLING” OF GOD, AND YOU MUST BE AN OVERCOMER IN ALL THINGS. WHEN YOU ARE “WEAK” REMEMBER THAT YOU RECEIVE YOUR STRENGTH FROM THE “ALMIGHTY“! THE ONLY FORCE IN THE WHOLE WORLD THAT CAN STAND AGAINST SATAN IS THE CHILDREN OF GOD WHO ARE RE-BORN OF THE SPIRIT OF ALMIGHTY GOD AND BEAR HIS IMAGE.
Dearest Father and Jesus Christ my Savior, I want to finish Your earthly work and be trained for Your “high calling in Christ!” May I bear the image of Christ before the world so the world will know I belong to You. My prayer is for the “perfecting of the saints of God!” Make Your body (of believers) truly representative of Your truths and Your great love. Fill me with Your perfect love. Help me to be willing to lay the rest of my life down to help others and to love them into Your kingdom. Amen.
