Exodus 1:22 (NKJV)
22 So Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, “Every son who is born[a] you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive.”This blog comes at a time when our nation is up in arms. All around us there are senseless killings, murders and rapes. We are living in dangerous times. Scripture prophetically declares what would happen prior to it actually happening many years ago.
Matthew 24:6-8 (KJV)6 And ye shall hear of wars and rum ours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.Although I don’t claim to know it all, I do know and understand in everything we see and experience God is not deaf or blind to it all.He knows and sees everything. However as I listen to the news I can’t but help but feel powerless over this generation. I know we as Christians are taught to pray, and seek God.
However we as Christians are called to action, no we are not supposed to sit by, and wait for heaven to come. God is a God of purpose. He wants us to fulfill purpose on earth, as it is in heaven. We are not waiting for heaven to fulfill purpose. We are in earth, declaring heaven’s will to be done on earth.God has given us power, authority and dominion to change the earth for His kingdom. The more powerless we feel, the more the enemy wins. He (satan) doesn’t want us to know who we are in Him (God’s people).
We have more authority over him and his kingdom, yet if we don’t know we have power, he (satan) wins.I remember reading about a prayer warrior who had a vision. He talked about how in his vision he saw God’s people praying. In the vision when God’s people prayed, he saw the enemy and his demons in chains being held down. However when the people of God let up on prayer, the chains were loosened, the enemy and his demons were given free reign to wreck havoc and do as they pleased. So you see for the life of the believer the greatest battles we fight over the demonic and it’s kingdom is through spiritual warfare. We fight and win battles on our knees. Every physical battle we see in our news is about spiritual warfare. The enemy wants to stop a generation of men, and women from reaching their full potential in God. He literary is using the forces of darkness to attack and kill the following areas.• Christian marriage• Church• Individuals, as a whole.We must send out a war cry in our nation for the body of Christ to begin to take their rightful places as sons and daughters of the most high God. Remember when we pray as a united front, God will respond.Let us look at the text in Exodus 1 to gain full understanding.Exodus 1:22(MSG)22 So Pharaoh issued a general order to all his people: “Every boy that is born, drown him in the Nile. But let the girls live.”I encourage you in your own time to read the text in its entirety. The Pharaoh of that time was intimidated by their growth. The people of Israel were prospering, while they were being oppressed. They grew so much that Pharaoh thought that his position of authority would be overturned.
Exodus 1:7-10 (NKJV)7 But the children of Israel were fruitful and increased abundantly, multiplied and grew exceedingly mighty; and the land was filled with them.8 Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. 9 And he said to his people, “Look, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we; 10 come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and it happen, in the event of war, that they also join our enemies and fight against us, and so go up out of the land.”So the enemy started coming against God’s people in fear. For the sake of time and in order to not make this to blog to long. I want to introduce the term typology. In its simplest terms in means to look at scripture from a symbolic stance in order to see what God is trying to convey or communicate to the church today.The same thing happened in Jesus time by the way. When Pharaoh found out Christ was coming, he automatically assumed that he would overthrow the roman government.
Matthew 2:13-16New King James Version (NKJV)13 Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.”14 When he arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed for Egypt, 15 and was there until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt I called My Son.”[a]Massacre of the Innocents16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.So plot, same strategy, similar circumstance, different people, and different time.So based upon the scripture, what is examples can we use to convey to our time today. Remember even to this day, the enemy is using the same plot, same strategy, different people, and different time.• I believe there is a demonic attack against the male children, and this generation just as it is in the bible days. Remember Pharaoh who is representative of the enemy didn’t wait until they were of age. He made his decree to kill all the male children when they were infants. However it was and still is a spiritual attack.• The enemy knows his time is short, he knows that when our brothers and men of God walk into their kingdom assignment, the earth, the demonic kingdom is rendered defenseless. He is trying to stop this from happening.
• It is satan’s plan to rob this generation of their identify, their purpose and their lives. Why because he is intimidated by their growth.
• Remember the massacre didn’t come from low lying earthy people, it came from Pharaoh in a position of power and authority.Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.• The weapons we fight our not carnal, they are spiritual. You can’t fight spiritual wars with earthly strategies. The only way to overcome this war is through spirit to spirit.• Remember spiritual weapons for spiritual wars.My point is if we want to change a nation we must begin to pray. I know I sound cliché, but we need a revival of prayer back into our churches. However it starts with us and in our homes. Prayers must be a daily part of our regime. However not just any prayer, warfare prayers.We must begin to speak into the invisible atmosphere over our young boys and our young children. Satan knows the purpose and the identity of this generation long before we did. So he started his attack early when they were yet children. He is trying to confuse a generation of people so that they don’t know their identity.Stop watching shows like Scandal, Mary Jane, and Empire. Why? You may ask what does this have to do with the topic of this blog? It is simple these shows are demonically influenced. What you allow in your spirit you are in agreement with. Literarily you are sitting down in your home and allowing demons of perversion, homosexuality, division, murder, adultery, and lust, the list goes on to come into your home. You are allowing these demons access to you spirit and your life. When you sit and watch them, you allow them by the power of agreement, to demonic influence everything attached to you.. You can’t gain victory over a spirit you are enticed by and in agreement with.You have to guard your spirit, watch what you allow in your spirit. You can’t get victory over a demonic kingdom you are a part of. Even if your children don’t watch these shows, when you watch them you give the enemy free access and reign to your house and everyone in it. That includes your children. These show desensitize you to sin and the pull of the world. Stop coming into agreement with the demonic world!Remember the power of agreement works in both the secular demonic world and in Christ. The power of agreement means whatever you agree with, whether it be with yourself or another, you then give power. When you watch, observe and listen to the demonic you then give it power.When you come into agreement with the kingdom of God, you give it power in your life and can then impact nations, even if there is only one or two with you.Matthew 18:20 (NKJV)20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Deuteronomy 32:30 (NKJV)30 How could one chase a thousand,And two put ten thousand to flight,Unless their Rock had sold them,And the Lord had surrendered them?You see when you come into agreement with the power of darkness, then child of God you empower the demonic not only in your home, in your children, in your city, in your nation and in your church. One person can put a thousand to flight.So in the kingdom of heaven when you come into agreement, with Christ you the stop the enemy dead in his tracks. You then empower, protect, give identity to and put thousands into flight to fight the enemy in your home, your children, your nation and your city.Do you see same principle, different kingdoms? Who you come into agreement with determines the outcome. You can’t come into agreement with both at the same time. The principle of least to greater comes into effect. It means whichever has greater influence will be prominent, therefore rendering the other obsolete. They never co-exist at the same time. So you can have the demonic having full reign in your life and not know it because you are trying to be a part of the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the devil at the same time. When without you knowing it you are really apart of the demonic world because you chose not to let go of the kingdom of darkness.That is why the enemy wants to rob the male child of their identify. Men become fathers and husbands. Husbands and males reign and rule in their homes, cities and nations. Fathers give, identity, protection and provision to the nation and in their homes. Satan is intimidated by the prophetic declaration that God has already preordained before the beginning of time.Look what happened all because Moses lived. A whole nation of Israel was released from bondage. Look at what happened because Jesus came as a male child and lived? They changed generations and nations yet unborn. We have some modern Moses, Joshua’s, etc that will help to deliver nations.We have a great responsibility. We must fight warfare on many different levels, I will highlight just a few for the sake of a blog that is already too long.
• Psychological warfare (having to do with identity and the battlefield that exist in the mind)• Spiritual warfare (Ephesians 6:12)• Territorial warfare (homes, cities and nations)• Familiar warfare (the attack against positioning within families, marriages and family institutions such as church)• Marital• Legislative (unjust laws contrary to the word of God)It may seem like too much, yet look what God told Jeremiah who was just one man.
Jeremiah 1:10 (NKJV)10 See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms,To root out and to pull down,To destroy and to throw down,To build and to plant.”Speak the word!When you are empowered by God, He will put you over the same principalities, nations, and kingdoms that are plotting to kill you, your children, and the male child.We must pray, declare and speak the word. We must allow Holy Spirit and our Heavenly Father to empower us. Nations can and will be changed when God’s people stand up!
2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.Judgement begins within the house of God. It means the ability to change laws, nations, authorities that are contrary to the word of God, happen within the body of Christ FIRST.Lastly we must pray against the spirit of distraction. It is the spirit that is self-centered. It really is a spirit that doesn’t care about the nation, it really is concerned about itself. So this person wants the prophetic word to prophesy them a home, cars and prosperity. There is nothing wrong with prospering. However remember purpose is not for your own prosperity, it is for the prosperity of a nation. If we seek to fulfill God’s kingdom, the things we desire will come to our house. We don’t seek things. We seek that nations be free from the hand of the enemy. So my prayer is that even within our church we be a people whose heart breaks for our nations. So that we love what He loves, hates what He hates and can pray for others. Distraction doesn’t care about anyone but itself. It preaches more about the things that God wants to bless us with rather that how God wants to use to transform a nation.
We have the power in our mouths! Prayer!
Remember spiritual wars, spiritual weapons.
