Clash In The Heavens

UntitledWe are discussing the Kingdom of God. Today, let’s shed some light and truth about how the enemy realm steals our blessings.

Have you ever read the story about Daniel and how he prays and the Lord immediately, and I mean IMMEDIATELY, responds and sends an answer in reply?

He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.

Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.” —Daniel 10: 10-14

This passage is extremely revealing.

Our prayers move the heart of God. He delights to respond to earnest, heartfelt prayer and petitions. Out of intimacy, because Daniel was continual intimacy with the Father, God immediately responded to his request for understanding. But what is revealed here is fascinating and absolutely STILL AT PLAY TODAY.

The angel with the answer, is delayed in the second heaven where he literally had to battle a demonic principality to make his way to earth. This scenario is played out over and over again today as we petition the Lord with our prayers and requests. We must battle through some heavy territory to receive our answers because the Prince and ruler of the air, this planet, well do everything possible to steal our blessings, our answers, our benefits that are lavishly released to us by the Father’s hand.

I have watched this scene play out so many times in my own life. And GRRRRRRR. It makes me so mad at the devil.

What we need to learn from this lesson in Daniel is PRESISTENCE. I cannot preach about this word enough. My experience in Christianity is that believers give up way to easily and way toooooo soooooon. Everything about answered prayer is about persistence, pressing in, and petitioning until our answer arrives.

This passage also reveals something very powerful. We need pray support. It was only Daniel praying. He was alone in his petitions and it took 21 days. This is a lesson that corporate prayer brings more power to push back the enemy lines and make a breakthrough the second heaven oppression to allow God’s provisions to enter in. Now, I realize that sometimes it’s only us. Only you that is praying. And this passage indicates that God answered and the angelic broke through. So, we can depend on the fact that our prayer alone are very powerful. Yet, when things are really deep or when prayer is needed for a people group, a city and a nation, joining together with other like-minded pray(ers) is what’s needed to move the answers through the heavens.

Okay, what do you think? Share with me a time where your persistence in prayer was evidenced. I’ll see you in the comments.

The Angelic Realm II

The Angelic Realm II

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comI loved the angel stories that were shared in the comments on Tuesday. Awesomeness and THANK YOU!

I’ll wager nearly every human has experienced an encounter with an angel. People tend to hold these stories close to their hearts, just as we do. Sometimes the encounters are so fantastic that we believe people would think we are crazy if we shared them.

What grieves me is that people experience the angelic and because their experience is so fantastic, they discount it as imagined. They ask themselves, “Did that really just happen?” And then the enemy speaks to their mind to convince them they merely imagined the event.

Anyhoo, I want to share just a bit more that I know about the angelic realm. There are actually multiple realms of angels. These realms have different functions in the heavens and on the earth. What is awesome to realize is that we all have an angel that is assigned to our life from conception until we depart earth.

See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. Matthew 18:10

This scripture is clear that we have angels as children. What I’ve come to understand is that our angels is provided to protect us and to help us achieve the mandates that are written in our book Psalm 139:16.

They partner with us when we are working in alignment with our work on earth for our heavenly Father. They truly don’t understand sin nor all the things we drag them through. They merely wait…. and wait…. and wait… for us to finally discover who we are, whose we are and then to pursue our mandates so they can assist. They have no authority of their own. They were created to serve the heirs of salvation.

Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14

They wait for us to issue commands and decrees through our prayers so they have authority to move upon our words. With this understanding it brings into sharp focus how our words good or bad result in those very words coming to pass. Just as the angelic wait upon our words, it’s also true that the demonic wait to pounce on every careless word we speak to also bring them to pass.

WHOA!

But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. Matthew 12:36

So gang, wondering. Have you witnessed this very thing happen in your own life. You speak a blessing and watch it happen. You speak a word of accusation or grumbling against someone and watch that come to pass?

See you in the comments, Hugs, Lynn

Who Is In the Kingdom?

Who Is In the Kingdom.

image from www.spirituallyunequalmarriage.comSo we discussed some of the legal structure of the Kingdom. Of course, there is a LOT more to learn and understand. Give me time. We will get there.

Today, let’s understand who is in the Kingdom. I want to clearly state there is only ONE Kingdom. It is the Kingdom of God and His Kingdom is absolute! However, there are many other kingdoms within the spiritual realm.

The kingdom of darkness is formed out of satan, the fallen angel Lucifer. His Kingdom mimics God’s Kingdom and is also held to the same legal structure. His kingdom structure is filled with beings that are described in Ephesians:

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. —Ephesians 6:12

Satan is at the top and he delegates out his power (he has power and how he obtains this power, will be covered in later teachings). He spreads his power out through fear, intimidation, torture and terror to rulers, authorities, principalities, power of the dark world, spiritual forces of evil, demons and then into humans. And by the way, these are different beings with different powers and authorities in and of themselves. They have differing functions and responsibilities. But all of them rule through abject FEAR and torture.

And for many of you who have been studying these realms for a number of years, I realize this is a broad overview and there are quite a number of more players in the dark realms I didn’t list. We will get there. I had to start somewhere.

Then there is the angelic realm. AND Oh how I want to talk about the angels and how much we need them. How much they love us. They are simply fascinating and there is an entire structure of angels as well. We’ll talk about that in the next post.

My question to you today is this, where do you think the “church” is today in understanding there are demons and they affect everyone on the planet, even Christians?

Can’t wait to hear from you in the comments. I’m traveling so it may be a few days, but I’ll be here to discuss. Some brave soul, share what you know and help all of us to create a great discussion so we can learn. Hugs, Lynn
