“DOES SATAN REALLY EXIST…

angelovercity

OR JUST A FIGMENT OF OUR IMAGINATION?”

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan[b] also came among them.  And the Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So Satan answered the Lord and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.” Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?” So Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 Have you not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? Job 1:6-9

Why do so much conflict, violence and downright evil permeate our societies? Where can we find the answer? We would think that we could find some sort of bright light in the world through religion, sadly, even religion, that many look for solutions to life’s problems is in disarray. Christians warring against Christians, Muslim kill Muslim, and Jews confront other Jews. Every facet of hope appears to be confusing for so many. It is as we are a blind people searching for a spark of light in darkness. Why are we plagued with such suffering and problems? Scientist recognizes that a basic law of the universe; is that a cause exist for every effect. Things do not just happen, they occur because “something” or “someone” causes them to happen.  In fact, we can find a cause for every evil we see in the world.  Crime, war, religious confusion, famine, starvation, disease, premature death in their many tragic forms all exist for a reason. Our primary cause for such chaos lurks behind the curtains of the physical realm. Masking itself in the shadows cunningly as many go about believing that he is some mythical embodiment of evil, truth is many don’t know what to believe any more. To know the enemy of mankind, one must study about the enemy as the enemy has studied and continues to study humanity.  Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”  When we fail to study the source and origin of spiritual things, we tend to fall into the secular beliefs of others opinions and drug away by feeble tales and myths that have no scriptural truth and therefore are blinded to what happens around us spiritually. To answer the original question at hand…does Satan really exist? The answer…yes, of course he does and he is a very real threat and deceiver of humanity. Where can we find the most reliable source of information on the spiritual realm? There is only one original source that pertains to the spiritual world that surrounds us and that found in the Bible. The Bible contains unequivocal internal evidence that it truly is the Word of God and through its pages God reveals true spiritual knowledge, information unavailable from any other source.  This is not for brothers and sisters to focus continually on the evil that surrounds us as a body, because we know that He that is in us is greater than he that is in the world. This is for us to be aware and informed that there is a REAL enemy of the children of God and that we should pay close attention to the schemes, illusions and deceptions the enemy uses to divide and conquer, methods of conflict and illusions and lies that masks itself by the enemy to shatter, weaken and mislead those of faith. How can one obtain leverage in enemy territory if not informed of the enemy’s tactics? God is ALL powerful, however, he allows Satan to carry out his deceitful and destructive activities-within certain limits- for a purpose. We can use the story of Job as an example of that purpose. God knew Job’s heart better than Satan thought he did. Suffering sometimes proves the character of God’s children during trying moments such as that of Job. As Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 2:4; “We are not trying to please men, but God who tests our hearts.” This is why Paul and others could rejoice during their sufferings, they knew that during their sufferings, testing and trials the Spirit of God rested upon them. Therefore rejoice when trials come, when the enemy has selected you, because one…you are a child of the living God, and two…we know that God will not give us more than we can bear. Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” May God continue to watch over you, protect you and bless you in all that you do and touch as we press forward from faith to faith and glory to glory. Amen.

“DELIVERANCE…”

demon-within-faces-image

AN ACT NECESSARY TO SEE THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

Deliverance… refers to the activity of cleansing a person of demons and evil spirits in order to address problems manifesting in their life as a result of the presence of said entities and the root causes of their authority to oppress the person. Let’s make something very clear from the start. Deliverance is not for non-believers, it is for those that have accepted Christ as Lord and Savior. Now the legal rights given to these spiritual influences or demons can be broken from your life as a child of God.  Adherents to this theological concept attribute physical, psychological spiritual and emotional problems that people suffer to the activities of the oppressing  spirits following the example of Jesus Christ given in the gospel. Beloved family, I’ve mentioned many times in different post as you already know, that Spiritual Warfare is very real. As children of God, we MUST begin with the house of God first, by examining every part of our lives carefully and prayerfully to see if there’s any influence that is limiting our seeing, witnessing, or hindering our function in the body of Christ. Why begin with the house of God? Hosea 4:6; “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:” is a good place to start. Some tend to believe that just because we are Believers/Christians, that we are incapable of being influenced by demonic forces or spiritual influences…this is an error in our thinking and most welcome by the enemy, because then your guard is down, we become blinded and then there is no armor of defense and the enemy is having a banquet at our expense in our lives because we’re with lack of knowledge which is right there in the Word of God. Then it is as our Lord states; But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” Matthew 6:23. And You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:5. Is therefore something we should consider and then we are no longer the blind leading the blind as children of God but walking in step with the Spirit. Amen. Family we’re only human granted, and we deal with things in areas of our lives that sometimes tend to weaken us, causes us to fall and at times wants to just give up…trust me I know. My life personally is nothing short of Jonah and The Prodigal Son, if there was a photo for either, it would be mine. My point is deliverance is a process of healing…coming together with those that are gifted by God with the “Gift of Discernment” that recognizes these influences and begin your healing process to get rid of these influences that appear to be interfering in one or more areas of your lives. Without it, we’re a people destroyed before entering the battle. We’ve all at one point have done some things we’re not too proud of, and times those things flash before our eyes in prayer or times of reflection, this is only the gentleness of the Spirit saying “Bring it to me…surrender it….I will forgive you and heal you.” Some of these I like to call unconfessed sins, and other times the enemy trying to bring up your past, which at those moments if I’ve surrendered them, I stand on God’s Word in that moment to fight those lies brought about by the enemy.  “By his stripes we are healed.” Therefore my brothers and sisters, having said this, let our deliverance and healing begin this day that we may truly walk as children of light and continue in that great commission;  “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;” Mark 16:15-17. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob watch over you and protect you from ALL unseen hurt, harm and danger in Jesus name. Let us therefore press on in hope, faith and love and we advances forward from faith to faith and glory to glory. “He that has begun a good work in you will not stop until it is completed.” Amen.

“THE POWER AND PRESENCE OF GOD…”

images (17)

…THAT LEADS TO HUMILITY AND OBEDIENCE.

Do you often wonder why the enemy has no fear or worry about the body (us) of Christ in these days? Well, I would like to share something that perhaps you may already or may not know. The Word of God states in Deuteronomy 4:24 and again in 9:3, that; “Our God is a consuming fire.” Meaning; that anything in the path of our God is literally destroyed or burned up. In 1Timothy 6:16 it states; “an unapproachable light.”  I don’t believe that our mind could possibly fathom such awesomeness or realize the magnitude of such a power. Men that were found to be in the presence of God made statements such as…”  Isaiah 6:5, and When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” Luke 5:8. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:” Revelation 1:17. This is the kind of power and presence that bring about a complete transformation of a person as well as empower a person’s walk in faith.   Have the body of Christ in these days lost touch with that kind of presence and power being active in our lives? The enemy doesn’t mind our praying, in fact encourages it as long as that presence and power of God is not actively working within our lives to cause the enemy to fret. We are suppose to be as ONE body…ONE heart…ONE mind…and as ONE Spirit, that works in ALL and THROUGH ALL. Not permitting the enemy to pick us apart piece by piece. The enemy is a strategist and very patient and as long as he can keep division, strife, confusion, and disorder, there is no unity within the body to cause him to fear. We are in need of returning to that original faith as when we first believed and was saved by our Lord Jesus…a revival within the body and our personal lives as well to combat this dangerous enemy that still till this day hold captive those predestined to receive eternal life and those of us who have fallen asleep within and forgotten what that power and presence is like that bring about humility and obedience to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If angelic host, specifically Seraphim’s known to have 6 wings; 2 to cover their faces, 2 to  cover their feet, and 2 they use for flying and are in the presence of God. Such powerful created being That constantly sing out “Holy, holy, holy is Yahweh of hosts, the whole earth is filled with his glory”(Isa.6:3), and “Holy, holy, holy, lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!” (Rev.4:8) God uses these beings in judgment especially in the tribulation, need to cover in themselves in the presence of God, should we not, who will also judge angels, walk in this awesome presence of our God, Lord and Savior for the glory of the Kingdom of heaven? I believe this is what the Apostle Paul meant by saying; “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.” Ephesians 5:14, that we may begin to experience that presence and power actively in our lives today and then we will see those miracles of old by working of the Holy Spirit through us…that mustard seed faith that shakes mountains. Amen. Therefore let us press forward beholding that presence and allowing that working power to bring us back to that unity in Christ as it should be and give the enemy something to worry about and may our God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ protect, empower, and give all wisdom to each part of this body that we may give glory to Him by the exercising of our faith through humility and obedience.  Psalms 139:14. Amen

“BECAUSE HE LIVES…

184088_2289100676084_1505970333_32478211_8352821_n

…I CAN FACE LIFE”

He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end; “For those God foreknew , he also predestined to be conformed into the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers, and those he predestined, he also called, those he called, he also justified, those he justified, he also glorified. What then shall we say to this? If God is for us… who can be against us?”  Romans 8:29-31. There is no need of us to worry about yesterday, for it has passed and there is nothing we can change even If we tried, and tomorrow, for it hasn’t came and we no not what it may bring, nor if it will arrive, therefore all we have is today, and in this day we shall not worry about what to eat, wear, or drink, because our God through our Lord Jesus Christ knows all things we’re in need of for this day and shall provide our every need. So we will rejoice in Him and praise Him for this day…another day to lift our voices and let it be heard, not only in this realm, but in the spiritual realm, that because HE lives we can face life; without fear, without doubt, without confusion, without regard to what life may bring, because our Lord will give us strength in that hour of need…for his grace is sufficient to sustain us. Therefore let us press onward in that upward call in Christ Jesus with our eyes fixed on the prize heavenward in Christ. Not allowing the enemy a foothold today, while it is stilled called today and let your wondrous light shine as bright as the noonday sun; you are an Ambassador of a heavenly Kingdom and the eyes of our Lord are upon us. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob protect you, watch over you and keep you as the apple of his eye as you move forward in faith, hope, and love. Amen.

“AGAINST ALL ODDS”

angels%20army%20knights%20demons%20diablo%20armor%20tyrael%20swords%201920x1080%20wallpaper_www.wallpaperhi.com_16

True story: I remember being alone in my room and getting down on my knees and began to pray. Moved in spirit I prayed about things that concerned me at this time and troubles I had been facing; a very trying time in my life. I went on about specific things, how to face them, decisions I should make, etc…, but as I stated, I was alone…so I thought. I remember ending that prayer with; “Lord Jesus, please don’t pass me by.”  Two weeks later I went to a church service and really didn’t know anyone there, including the Pastor. I listened to the message and he started to stare at me as I sat there in the front row, and he continued to speak. He paused again and looked at me then continued, which at first I thought was a little strange. Then he stopped and looked at me and pointed and called me by my name, which he did not know and said; “Daniel, the Lord said he has not passed you by, that Satan desires to sift you like wheat (basically asking to attack me), but he is in the middle praying for you, that when he created you he broke the mold.”  Perhaps you can imagine the look on my face hearing this prophetic message; the tears began to fall from my eyes and all I could say was “Why me?”  Well I understand more now than I did back then, however what was more incredible was the fact that somebody was listening and watching and believe me this is not the first spiritual experience that has been part of my life, but more than some 15 years and still going. Can you image having your name spoken of in the throne room God? I don’t share any of this to be considered something great or special, I’m a sinner saved by God’s amazing grace, just as any of my brothers and sisters are. I’m not here to convince the world around me that what I say or share is real, that’s not my job, however, I am here to encourage my brothers and sisters in the walk of faith, to represent our true home, the Kingdom of our Lord, to shine light on what takes place around us that we may or may not be aware of as we continue to sharpen each other in our faith. The Apostle Paul says; “Let each man seek out his own salvation with trembling and fear.” And again states; If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.”  I can’t say it enough that spiritual warfare is real, our enemy is a real created being searching for prey, and that prey is the children of God and he’s not alone, however, neither are we. Amen. Yes I’m the author of “Battlefield of Angels”, and yes I write fiction in content, but the events in the novel are real experiences that passed, a shadow of my life, however I write with the hopes that it would open eyes to many to return and get rooted in God’s word and stand firm no matter what, the eyes of heaven are upon us. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob watch over, protect, and keep you as you start your week. God bless. …Are you ready?
