Every day since my injury I have written an original blog. It’s one way I make the devil pay for attacking me. This the is one I have been waiting to post. But there’s a catch.
The catch is not a lot of people read about this subject. This should not surprise us. Since this is the most powerful way to stop Lucifer, he is trying to bury its very existence. So, if no one wants to hear it, then what made me go ahead and write it? You did.
I have been profoundly moved and encouraged by the growing hunger for the deep things of God in our readers. So what is the most important thing?
To get our answer we must first reach a conclusion about America. Arthur Matthew said, “The central influences of life are being taken over by men from the bottom levels of society in contrast to earlier generations. God’s authority in society is mediated from the top in the punishing of evil and the rewarding of good. But when control is taken over by the men at the bottom, we may be sure that the devil is in it.”
Satan is behind the marches, the media bias, the deepening immorality. The men from the bottom of levels have seized this moment to erase Judeo-Christian values. All of it—taking the guns, destroying marriage, voter fraud, abortion, open borders, are just ploys to bring America under the control of demonic power.
Yes, I am a political conservative. I comment on all those subjects. But I know that ultimately, I must deliver a direct blow to Satan and his minions, by the power of the Holy Spirit, or I will never see America set free. The crisis is the church doesn’t know how to do this.
We wrestle not with flesh and blood but with principalities and powers. Sadly, the church hardly wrestles at all. You know that most Christians around you have no clue how to oppose or pray down the powers that control our culture. I hope you want to learn how—because that my friend is the most important thing I have learned.
Many have come to rely on this blog for different reasons. I am convinced that the greatest service this blog can provide is only now beginning to appear.
It came as I was angry and frustrated spending so much time on my back. I felt helpless to doing anything important—I needed to get back in the battle. The Holy Spirit said I could do the most important thing I have ever done—right here in this room.
I could remove demonic barriers. I could disrupt evil plans from my room. But strongholds and barriers are not removed by God’s omnipotence until the believer takes the initiative and stands his ground in the heavenly places to engage the powers of evil that are causing our national perversion—the forces that are causing all the misery in our culture.
Those who can take their stand between heaven and hell and pray—not like we are praying now, but praying with the full realization of the Cross, and the victory Jesus won there.
Arthur Matthew describes it this way: “they take their position in Christ in the heavenlies and wrestle with and withstand the powers of evil that are manipulating the willing puppets on the streets.”
The kind of resistance that drives Satan back—that cuts off the supply of his puppets here on earth—brings into confusion those who would do us harm, cannot be done arrogantly.
Listen to more of Matthews:
Such resistance against supernatural powers is not done boastfully or presumptuously, but humbly as befits those who realize that they have no might in themselves and t they owe everything to the grace and power of God. The exercise is not a call for self-advertisement as some would make it. It is the ordained function of those who are in Christ and, I think we should add, of those who are filled with the Spirit. God does not commission men not filled with the Spirit to fight his battles. Paul was filled with the Holy Spirit when he confronted Elymas the sorcerer and exposed the devil’s attack and defeated him (Acts 13:9). It is not to be passed over that the command to be filled with the Spirit comes in the context of the Christian’s walk on earth and his warfare in the heavenlies.
I am learning to cut off the devil’s power through prayer—prayer in a new and living way for America. I believe that this is what you crave and together we can unleash this great power of prevailing prayer right now.
