UNDER ATTACK

“Many are the afflictions of the righteous;but the Lord delivers him out of them all” [ Psalms 34:19]. The church is under attack, people are under attack, marriages are under attack, children are under attack, the devil is on a rampage, he realizes we are in the latter days so he has increased demonic attacks. Therefore we as children of the most high God have to elevate our level of prayer, praise, fasting, and meditation on the word of God. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,but mighty through God,to pull down strongholds and bring them under obedience to Christ {2Corinthians 10:4&5}.

 Ephesians 6:12-13 clearly identifies the enemy as demonic spirits, it states:

For we wrestle not against fresh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places; Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day.”

We can see the uprising of demonic forces in high places, with the passing of the gay rights bill, legalizing same-sex marriages, the killings of children. The list goes on.  The acceptance of these behaviours in society shows the massive increase of men pleaser more than God pleaser. We are in a fierce battle even though the enemy looks like they are winning, it’s just a smoke screen to keep those who are lost blinded by the truth and the fact that, the devil is already defeated, because of Jesus Christ our Messiah.

All the things that are taking place in the world today are signs of  demonic influences and perversion of Gods intended purpose. If God had intended for us to live in sin He never would have sent Jesus, His only begotten son to redeem us. Beloved children of God now is the time for us to walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16).

Our most effective weapons when we are under attack is: prayer, 1 Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to pray without ceasing; But remember only the effectual prayers of the righteous availed much (James 5:16). So are you righteous ? Know your strength, Luke 10:19 tells us that Jesus has given us the power to tread upon serpents, scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Next we must praise Him continually, Psalm 34 :1 tells us that His praise must be continually in our mouths. Hebrews 13:15 tells us to give Him a sacrifice of praise. Then we must offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving (Amos 4:5). We must give thanks always for all things (Ephesians 5:20). To be victorious we must cast down any and every imaginations that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ ( 2 Corinthians 10:5).

As Christians to conqueror the enemy repeatedly, we need to give ourselves to fasting and prayer, repent often, and meditate on Gods word day and night, once we eliminate some thing we love to eat or do as a sacrifice to God it drives the enemy crazy. Then put on the whole armour of God (Ephesians 6:14-18) which are: the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, shoes of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, the sword of the spirit, and praying in the spirit.

If you don’t know God or His only begotten son Jesus Christ, you are invited to know Him. Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions. All praise, glory, honor, and thanks go to God for using me to deliver His message.
