The Battle Begins Now
Thanks for joining me!
When I willingly made the decision in my Spirit [Heart], to be ‘born from above’, for the Kingdom of God, as Yeshua [Jesus Christ] told Nicodemus in John 3:3; I thought ADONAI- Ro-eh [The Lord our Shepherd] will make me lie down in green pastures and lead me beside still waters just like the Psalmist highlighted in the book of Psalms 23:2. I had no idea embracing Yeshua as the captain of my salvation meant I was enlisting as a soldier in the army of God of ALL creations [ADONAI Elohim] as is written, in the Holy Scriptures of 2 Timothy 2:3.
I’ve since learnt in Matthew 10:34-36, that believers are soldiers and Jesus Christ did not come to bring peace [Shalom] but a sword. If you follow Yeshua , your father , daughter, mother, daughter-in-law , mother-in-law or anybody close to you can become your enemy and turn against you ‘Spiritually’ often times unaware. HE went further to warn us that , man’s enemies will be the members of his household. I’ve discovered that we’re more than conquerors in Christ, which also tells me ungodly and unseen dark forces are trying to conquer us and stop us from entering God’s Kingdom. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms [Ephesians 6:12].
Everything visible and physical is preceded by that which is invisible and spiritual. Keep this truth in mind; the Holy Scriptures tells us in John 10:10 that, the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Every demon has the same mission; how they go about it – their strategies and tactics – are different. A spirit of fear attacks your faith, let’s take David and Goliath story as an example; while a spirit of rejection attacks your identity [John 15:18]. The enemy is strategic; has a highly organized army, and able to send specific evil spirits against believers to derail them from their kingdom purpose [‘God given Destiny’].
My prayer for you brothers and sisters as you connect with me on this blog, is that, you will gain discernment to identify spirits opposing your life – and the lives of those you love – and develop spiritual battle skills to fight back. Spiritual bondage can manifest in many ways – our Spiritual Life, Health, Relationships, Marriage, Finances, Family, Education, Career and or Business – but the Good News is that victory is ours; by walking in our God-given authority, we can effectively face these challenges and win in spiritual warfare. The Holy Scriptures tells us in 1 John 5:4 [Tree of Life Version] that,” For everyone born of God [ADONAI Elohim] overcomes the world. And the victory that overcomes the world is- our faith”.
Amen Amen Amen.
[ Joel 2: 28-32 ]
