Friends, I don’t know if you have looked around lately, but the world has gone mad! It is literally drunk on anxiety, depression, hopelessness, pride, insecurity, and power. In and out of our precious church walls men and women are walking intoxicated by unbelief,
oppression and fear. Fear of man, distrust of authorities, prisons of shame, held hostage by hopelessness and assaulted by anxious thoughts.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!
It’s time we stand! Jesus came to defeat the works of the enemy. (1 John 3:8) He came for us to walk in freedom. ( Gal 5:1) He died and literally resurrected so we could be free and free indeed. (John 8:36)
It’s time we call things into account. It’s time we reveal the real source of all this crazy we are all experiencing as we cry out in Prayer, “Maranatha! Come Lord JESUS Come!”
This past year my ministry received an unusual phone call. I was in our staff conference room praying with two ladies, when our office phone rang. A staff member answered it and to her surprise, there was a man raging on the phone demanding to talk to me. She politely replied that I was in a meeting, ‘could she take a message?’ The voice on the other end replied, “Tell her the devil is on the phone. She has tried to destroy me. I am coming after her! Tell her she is going to receive a subpoena in the mail. I am coming to destroy her!!”
Now I don’t know about you, but I’m not used to getting calls from the devil! However, after I got that message something inside me got really, excited!
The devil actually knew my telephone number! 😳 How cool is that??!! 😜
To know that what you’re doing to advance the Kingdom of God is so significant that it forces the devil to call you and tell you to STOP! I mean, it was a pretty, high compliment. I won’t lie, JESUS and I had a little dance party over this one!
Friends, I want to be clear on the things I write.
The enemy’s power has been REVOKED in JESUS and he has NO PERMISSION to torment my nor your life, if you belong to JESUS!
I don’t know about you, but I am tired of the enemy assuming upon my life, my family and my ministry.
So, today I want to challenge you to BREAK THE CURSE! ( Galatians 3-4) I’m gonna shout it from the highest mountain that the enemy has NO PERMISSION to steal my joy, my peace, my sound mind, my children, my marriage, my relationships, and my purpose anymore! He is being CANCELLED from my culture and he can pack his bags and run! I’m hanging up the phone and refusing to take his calls!
So often we passively allow little footholds in our lives that eventually create huge crevasses in our soul. We must STAND and FIGHT! We must wage war against the father of lies and revoke his
permission to disrupt, destroy, and dismantle our lives! The Bible is clear that we have a real enemy. (1 Peter 3:8) He is an assaulter of our souls. One who makes his mission to kill, steal, and destroy. ( John 10:10)
If we want to walk tall, above the white noise, and overcome the unseen obstacles, we must recognize the strategy of our contender.
We must BAPTIZE our mind, heart, and will in the Word of God and sharpen our sword for battle.
We must REFUSE to give him permission to have a voice in our lives.
Let me ask you a few questions:
When was the last time you rebuked the
When was the last time you told those lurking shadows to go back to hell where they came from?
When was the last time you dismantled that lying voice with the Truth of God’s Word?
It’s time we stand and rebuke, cancel, and destroy the works of the enemy through the authority of JESUS CHRIST.
I’m meeting more and more people (many are Christians) willingly living under the oppression of the enemy.
Friends, you have authority in JESUS. Authority to take your mind back. Authority to overcome sin. Authority to live above the lies and dismantle darkness. It’s time we learn who we are in JESUS and begin calling forth His Kingdom into our lives.
We were created to Reign, NOT Resign to the darkness.
To Thrive, NOT Succumb to ongoing supernatural theft.
To Overcome, NOT Hide oppressed by the enemy.
Today I want to challenge you.
Who is speaking loudest in your ears? Is it God’s voice or the enemy’s? Who is dominating your atmosphere? Is it Holy Spirit or oppression? Who is determining your steps? Is it JESUS or the god of this age?
HANG UP THE PHONE and tell the enemy to go back to hell where he came from! It’s time to make your life so in sync with JESUS that the enemy regrets the day you were ever born!!!!!
“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:11-12
