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.

IT’S ALL IN THE PRAISE

Some people associate the scripture that says, “The Lord loves a cheerful giver,” with only money, tithes and offerings. But God loves you more when you give Him your heart, attention and time cheerfully (its value is more than the money you give). Plus remember that He owns the world, including everything and everyone in it. That is why in Psalm 100 He tells us how He wants us to come into His presence; He wants us to make a joyful noise unto Him.

“I will bless the Lord at all times His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; and healeth all thy diseases; who redeems thy life from destruction; and crowns thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; who satisfies thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles.” (Psalm 34:1;Psalm 103:1-5)

So give praise unto the Lord!

All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message. I pray that He will give all who read this message the spiritual gifts necessary to comprehend and act upon His word. I exercise my power and authority in the name of Jesus to bind every tactic of the enemy that will try to stop, hinder, or prevent this word from reaching its intended people. I loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.

CONTINUOUS PRAISES

There is not a person in the world, who does not like to be praised or thanked. So why would you think for a second that the God who made the universe, and everything in it, would not want to hear those appreciative words of thank you Lord. Listen, when you complain, and murmur you better know that the devil is having a party, a big celebration because you are miserable; But when you praise God it makes the devil sick, it destroys his pride, thus rendering him useless and defeated. Unless you are so mis-guided, or mis-lead into believing that you did it all, and God didn’t do anything.

I get to a point where I thank God for the things seen and unseen, because, there are things He does that’s obvious, and there are  things He does that we have no clue that, He intervened and prevented from happening to His children. Where we don’t end up as statistics, in the wrong place at the wrong time. There are so many people in the world, who ended up in the cemetery, morgue, and hospital, that was not and is not covered under the protection and shadow of the almighty (Psalms 91:1). That’s why I have to praise, and thank Him every chance I get, praise in advance, for future blessings, praise Him in the morning, noontime, evening – time, night-time, and every time, I get the time(Psalms 119:164). I have to Thank Him for waking me up everyday, He doesn’t have to, but He does it, because He loves me. I have to thank Him, for introducing me to His son Jesus Christ, so that I have access to Him, His privileges, His promises, His goodness, grace, mercies, and everything that’s good and perfect. The beauty about having a personal relationship with God is; We don’t have to wait or depend on earthly people; like a Priest, Bishop, Preacher, or anyone to go to God on our behalf. I go to Him in prayer, for myself, when I want, and how I want. It is so sad, when you see people depending, or waiting to  call their pastor to pray for them, not realizing they have the same access to Him as they do. All  they need to do is clean their act up, and start living according to His standards, and guidelines, presenting their bodies as a living sacrifice, Holy and acceptable unto Him, which is our reasonable service; we cannot be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, so that we can prove, what is that good, acceptable, and perfect will of God (Romans 12 :1-2). If you are not living righteous and Holy then you are living for the devil, thus making you an enemy of God, and your prayers will not be answered, regardless of who prayed for you(James 4:2-4).

Praising God my friends is a privilege not an option, He does inhabit the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3), He did it for the Israelites, and we are also His people, Jesus gave us the right, and privilege to be called children of God ( 1 John 3:1; John 1:12). Lets follow Davids example, “His praises shall continually be in my mouth”(Psalms 34:1); just remember when the praises go up, blessings are released, for our benefit (Psalms 33:1). God deserves all glory and praise(Psalms 147:1); why don’t you praise and honor Him today, by accepting Him through His only begotten son Jesus Christ, just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, trust me it will be the best praise He ever gets from you. All praise, glory, honor, and thanks goes to God the Father of our Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ for using me to get His message out to his children, may it bless you as it did me.
