For those who run, you understand the term “a second wind.” You’ve been running for about 2 miles on that 5K and then in that 3rd mile the second wind catches you and you have that burst of energy at the end to finish strong. Well, the believer is running the race of faith. For many this race is years and years long. Its very easy to get weary in this race. To give up and call it quits. The years of temptation, the years of asking Jesus for forgiveness, the striving and fighting of faith gets laborious.
The tool that God has given us to receive a second wind in our walk with him is fasting. Fasting builds that lactic acid as you purposefully refrain from eating and drinking at least for 24hrs. In this time you’re fasting from electronics and focusing on Jesus. Spending time in prayer and reading or listening to the Word.
God’s gift is a second wind. Deliverance from stubborn demons of limitation, fear, addiction, and/or mental issues i.e. depression. Fasting maximizes your prayer life and intimacy with Jesus.
Go ahead and get that second wind.
Your life is a book filled with thousands of conversations with others. Every day you live you have conversations that will either add to your life or subtract. You will have conversations that bring joy and some that bring shame. You cannot live in this world and receive anything without first having a conversation. It is the most basic and complex form of life.
A relationship with Jesus requires a conversation. Before any change in conduct, you must have a conversation with him. You must confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. This conversation creates a relationship with Jesus. Like, the thieve on the cross, he had a conversation with Jesus and ended up in heaven with Jesus. He said, Lord remember me and Jesus said, today you will be with me in paradise. The thief then died and went to heaven.
When you interact with your family are you having Godly conversations that lead to righteous living? Are you speaking with your children about Jesus in their uprising and when they go to sleep? Are you directing them to Jesus when they find themselves in trouble? Are they being taught your dependency or dependency on Jesus? Are you surrounding them with conversations that bless them? Edify them?
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. – Deuteronomy 6:6-9
A simple conversation about Jesus with your family will create a natural conversation with others. A conversation that transfers from the family to friends. Fear is the number one reason that people don’t share Jesus, when the world shows you sin. If a friend is bold enough to ask you to smoke weed, you should be bold enough to share Jesus. After all, drugs ruins the mind, but God keeps you alert and aware. A simple conversation about Jesus is a natural volley. Someone passes you a question and you return the volley with Jesus. When you love God with all of your heart, mind & strength it will come out naturally.
Never forget the reason why this is so important. A person that has not heard the message about Jesus and dies in your care, will spend eternity in hell and their blood is on you. Everyone is called to preach (tell the good news) about Jesus. Take every opportunity to have a quick conversation about Jesus.
We are living in a day where children are being exposed to sex at record numbers. The average child sees and views pornography by the age of 5-7 and by the time they are 10 and 12 years old they have seen 1000’s of sexual charged images. These images come with demons. The majority of these children have 100’s of demons on the inside of them. Most people, sadly many Christians believe that to have demonic possession equals what they see on Hollywood. Demonically, filled people only act strange when a Christian who wields discernment and power begins to cast them out. Most people live normal lives with thousands of demons on the inside controlling many of their thoughts and actions. Demons are not crazy, they act crazy when they are being tormented for the most part, which is when they are being cast out.
Now when you are dealing with children that have demons their conversation will be advanced. A 13 year old boy or girl can have game because they have a thousand year old demon using their mouth and body to seduce a demonically filled teacher. It is literally a demonic dance using human flesh. Sadly, the instruments being used are unaware in many ways that these feelings they feel and the images that just pop up into their heads are from demons. They have lived with the evil spirit so long it is a part of their natural thought life.
The unfortunate thing about this is that only salvation will save these types of teachers and children. No amount of psychological training will even come close to changing this behavior. It is demonically based and fueled. Spiritual power that the average doctor is completely ignorant of. These demonically filled people will fall every time and will continue to fill the newspaper with teachers sleeping with their students.
Now for the Christian teacher who is in the demonically filled public school system, you will need to cover yourself with oil. This means that you will ask Jesus to put a fire in your eyes before you leave you home and teach. God’s fire fades, just like the glow on Moses face when he was off the mountain to long away from God’s presence. You will have to get in God’s presence before going to work and pray. Jesus put fire in my eyes. In Jesus name. All you have to do is believe your prayer and the angel of the Lord will do it. For some of you with the gift to see in the spirit, you can literally look in your bathroom mirror and see it, many of you will not see it, but demonically filled children will defiantly see it. They will behave differently around you. This is the mindset you must have. This is the wisdom you must have to defend yourself against the enemies devices.
You men & women in sexless marriages, need to stop that today and be a defense for your husband and husbands be a defense for your wife. I know that there are men not giving up the goods to their wives, cut that out. She gained a little weight, so what, if you have enough sex it will come off. Get to work and stop playing satanic games.
Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me (Psalm 51:5). Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him (Proverbs 22:15). So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand (Romans 7:21). I see my body, warring against the law of my mind and holding me captive to the law of sin that dwells within me (Romans 7:23). Cain killed his brother, but what did God say to him before he did? “If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it” (Genesis 4:7).
Parents who do not train their children make it very easy for Satan to sway mankind to kill. This means their parents, sister, brother, friend, enemy, grandparents or spouse, anyone that Satan wants them to kill. Why? Because you failed to drive that evil out of them. How can children be radicalized on the internet? Because you failed to drive that evil out of them. How can that sweet beautiful girl kill her baby? Because you failed to drive that evil out of them. People are born with devils. The sinful nature enters them while they are still in the womb of a woman. The moment they have life, they inherit death, which is the product of sin from the fall. If you do not want to raise a murderer, you will drive that evil out of them. If you do not want to raise a child who verbally abuses you and other children at school, you will drive that evil out of them.
Kiss the son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment (Psalm 2:12). Now this verse speaks about Jesus and us following him or feeling the wrath of hell, but it may be applied to human children as well. Kids need to be loved and this love includes not sparing the rod, but making sure you drive that evil out of them. When you raise your children well, they will reward you later and you will not have to hang your head in shame, when they are on the internet and in real life terrorizing people.
Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit (Galatians 6:8). The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, PEACE. Peace is the product of having God’s Spirit. God’s Spirit will not dwell in vessels that have not been cleansed by faith in his Son Jesus and following his command to repent and be baptized for the remission of sin (Acts 2:38).
Sin is the product or spirit of fear, worry and anxiety. It means devils and demons rule your heart and God does not. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). If you operate in God’s Spirit through your obedience to His Word, you will live in peace that passes understanding. This means that your peace is not dependent upon your situation or circumstance. It is a perpetual peace that is supplied to your spirit by the Spirit of God. It keeps your mind sound.
How can someone have depression, bipolar disorder, and night terrors and house God’s spirit at the very same time, when God himself said, His Spirit produces in the believer fearlessness, love that never fails, and a sound mind? These are incongruent and God is not a liar. If you have any of the above you have demons living on the inside and the only way you will get them out is to revoke their license. How do I revoke the license? Obedience to God’s Word. It means that after you have read your Bible, you walk in obedience. That means go and stay in church? Why? God said, don’t forsake the brethren. Not a suggestion, but a command. God said, get away from unbelievers and do not touch their uncleanness and he will come near. This is not a suggestion, but a command. If you read the Bible, pray, and fast and walk in blatant disobedience, your demons will remain.
God will not be mocked. Whatsoever a man sow that will he or she reap. Deliverance comes to those who are serious about living for Jesus alone and forsaking their own thoughts and taking on the entire mind of God.
