The Watchman, the prayer warriors, and those in the fields attempting to witness and speak out for Christ are coming under great attack in every way. Spiritually,& physically. We’ve heard it time and time again. Satan is spiritually causing chaos, doubt and distractions in the personal lives of those fighting this battle. He’s attacking them physically with illness, and stress. Yes this is Satan. I recently heard Steve Quayle speaking of how the prayer warriors in his circle have come under great attack. The workers are few and the harvest is ripe. Jesus said this. Those answering the call of God as Isaiah did and boldly claiming “Send me” are finding a great army of evil awaiting them. It’s important that we recognize this, as it is getting worse, and it will continue to get worse. The Body of Christ must unite, we must stand together in this battle. Will you answer the call? “Who will go for us, whom will we send?”
You’ve heard it before, I know we have. “Satan is roaming the earth like a ravenous lion seeking whom he may devour.” This statement couldn’t be more true today. There are demonic, dark evil spirits being unleashed on the world at a rapid rate. Look at the evil that is overtaking the Middle East and Africa. But you say “there have always been wars and rumors of wars.” While true these that we are witnessing today are straight from the pages of the Bible. This is not conventional war. I don’t mean that war is good or conventional, because it’s not. It’s evil, look at the evil that was behind WW2 and the other wars in history. But this evil is beyond our scope of imagination. Think about it for a minute. These wars are waged by a people whose god tells them that unless they kill, unless they rape and torture they will have no place in paradise, they must perform these heinous acts and die for their god. This is not God, this is evil.
We have all as the servants of Christ felt the weariness of the flesh and wanting to press past what we know we can accomplish through the Spirit! The weariness of many is falling over the land, but as watchmen and warriors of the word it is deep seated within every believer that it is always darkest before the dawn. Although no one likes a battle the one we are a part of as Christians has the hand of Almighty God upon it and we will win this victory by the blood of the Lamb who has gone before us and tells us that we too are overcomers! “But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches”.(Revelation 2:25-29).
Since we know that satan is the God of this world, (2 Corinthians 4:3,4) our battle is to win all that satan thinks he has the right to and since his judgement has already been set by God as he is held in the pit which will become his eternal home after the millinium he knows he has but a short time and will try his best to weary God’s people. We stand for everything opposite of what satan stands for……..satan is darkness, WE STAND FOR THE LIGHT, satan is wickedness, WE STAND FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS, satan stands for lies and is the father of it, WE STAND FOR THE TRUTH OF GOD’S ETERNAL WORD!
We are called to be soldiers for Christ and this spiritual war although is disheartening at times will shine forth as the battle we know is the Lord’s and has already won! This battle we are equipped with is of an unseen nature to the world, but we as God’s people know are not of the world now are we? and with the unseen power of God through a strong faith within us we claim the victory! Remember the prayer of Elisha that the Lord would open the eyes of his servant to see the battle he was about to fight had more with him than he thought? We too have this army of God dear people and stay strong in the battle. “And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha”.(2 Kings 6:15-17).
Remember it is of faith that moves the mountains in our life. Nothing is impossible with God! “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”.(2 Corinthians 10:3-5). We are the soldiers of Christ himself who has already conquered even death and needs us to stay strong by the Spirit given us! “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier”.(2 Timothy 2:3,4).
STAY STRONG PEOPLE…….. GOD IS WITH US! AND GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD!
