…THAT BREAKS ALL SPIRITUAL STRONGHOLDS”
The Battlefield of Angels; United States…The House of Slavery. D.R.Tracy is worth the read for those unaware of the spiritual warfare that takes place around us on a daily bases in different forms. Even as believers we walk in faith not knowing the forces of evil that stands in the way of our spiritual growth, or unaware of certain doors that we open unintentionally that may hinder our prayers for aid and how to combat against such spiritual evil and thus leaving us feeling defeated and without God’s help. Something I’ve witnessed in the Word of God from beginning to end is that the love of God, His power, His Holy Spirit and His authority is all over its pages unchanging from beginning to end for those of us that sincerely seek the will of God. However, our faith becomes stagnet and without the demonstration of the power and authority given to us through the Holy Spirit by Christ to accomplish our task at hand with the gifts given us by God. We often lack the love and compassion that was demonstrated through the person of His son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…God in human form to teach and instruct, to set free and stand in the gap for our brothers and sisters and a lost and suffering people as our Lord. This takes spiritual maturity and the mind of Christ to see with spiritual eyes and walk in obedience to the Word of God. That kind of compassion and love cast out ALL fear and doubt and breaks even the strongest of chains and bonds that are placed on an individual by the enemy. I’ve heard too many testimonies where believers in Christ walking in faith and those that ask believers to pray for them that needs repeat prayer over and over again to be set free from some demon force that attacks and wonder…why? Whether in an individual life, over a city or within a congregation, results were the same. Christ casted out “Legions of demons” attached to one life without repeated prayer and that person was clean and made whole; “And Jesus asked him, saying , What is thy name? And he said , Legion: because many devils were entered into him.” Luke 8:30. I’m not sharing this to say we often lack faith, though majority of the time this is the reason; “And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the boy was cured at once. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not drive it out?” And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.…” Matthew 17:18. But more so for the reason that we lack the love and compassion for others that limits our faith and the authority that we already possess to put that faith in action by the demonstration of the Holy Spirit. Our Lord didn’t say fight, but stand equip with the full armor of God in face of the enemy, for the battle is the Lord’s. Amen. And the Lord has promised us the there is NO weapon form that shall harm thee…if God is for us who can be against us? When will we begin to believe in our Lord’s promises, the Word of God and trust Him completely? When will we stop being such an unbelieving generation and stop the hindering of the Holy Spirit’s power to act and work through us? When we truly begin to look upon humanity with compassion and the love of our Lord and walk as TRUE believers…not that some aren’t doing so already, the remainder of us will follow suit and witness miracles as in the days of old with surprise as the world as if something mysterious has happen, but as a representative of the kingdom of heaven in this dark world that is under the sway of the enemy. And yes, people will be set free indeed, the blind will truly see, and the lame will really walk. Amen. Therefore, let us begin to walk as children of the God… children walking in faith filled with His Spirit and the authority given by our Lord to overcome spiritual conflicts, tearing down the strongholds of the enemy that is rooted in the lives of many believers and those predestined to receive salvation. Christ showed that authority given to Him by the Father, which He gave to those believers here in the world continuing that work for the advancement of the kingdom of God with the gifts God has given each of us, that we may lack nothing in our walk of faith through this “Valley of the Shadow of Death.” It is love that sets those captive free, and when our heart of stone is turned into flesh a full transformation begins to happen beyond our human understanding… as God has stated; “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 “…Call unto me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.” Jeremiah 33:3. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob watch over you and protect you and those you love as we mature in our faith and learn completely with the love of Christ that these strongholds may begin to uproot themselves from the lives of many by the authority given us from heaven. Amen. Are you really ready for spiritual warfare? Compassion and the Love of Christ through us for people is what sets the captives free and breaks the spiritual strongholds of the enemy. God bless.
