Use God’s Grace As A Weapon

spiritual war

It is important for the believer in Jesus Christ to understand that grace is the tool God has given you to destroy the works of the devil. He is powerless against the blood of Jesus when applied to the sinner who repents from sin. Take every opportunity to turn around. Do not dwell in sin. God has said, multiply times within the Bible that if you die in your sin, you will be eternally lost. This is serious.

Once you have asked the Lord Jesus to forgive you, then attack the devil in your family in Jesus name through prayer. Ask Jesus to deliver your family members from darkness and that the light that comes from Jesus fill their hearts. Ask him to soften their hearts to receive God’s commands and strength and boldness to carry out his desire upon the earth.

Our greatest enemy is spiritual. Housed within humans he holds the greatest camouflage, but God has told us already we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Once you understand that your enemy is a spirit, please attack him. The devils weapon is your sin. Your sin hinders and eliminates your ability to offer a real attack. He draws you into temptation and your sin gives Satan authority. Grace allows you to get it back and you can begin the attack again.

Warning: Die in your sin and you will perish for eternity. Use the grace to get back up and press toward the high mark of God quickly. Do not stay on the ground. You fall into sin, POP UP and ask God to forgive and cleanse you. It is important to remember that sin gives Satan authority and power in your life. Grace takes it away, obedience keeps it away, and then your prayer is clean and effective against the demons.

Go and use the grace, fight the good fight. Let’s push back the dark forces of the   world and increase the light of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Dietary Supplements send thousands to the ER each year and Prescription Drugs Kill Over 100,000 People Each Year

drug addiction,
“Death by medicine is a twenty-first century epidemic, and America’s war on drugs is clearly directed at the wrong enemy.” –Dr. Joseph Mercola

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the negative effects of cannabis and alcohol. Visit your local Pastor, Counselor, or Funeral Director and ask them how many people their aware of that has been buried because of just these two drugs.

Prescription drugs are currently responsible for more deaths annually than illegal drugs.  According to Tom Frieden, the CDC director himself, “it’s a big problem, and it’s getting worse


Out of the 783,936 annual deaths from conventional medicine mistakes, approximately 106,000 of those are the result of prescription drug use. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, two-hundred and ninety people in the United States are killed by prescription drugs every day.

Even if prescription drugs do not literally kill a patient though, they slowly kill their mind and body. This alters their ability to innately feel deeply and compassionately, the patient can be stripped piece by piece of his inner awareness and inner consciousness, the very essence of their being.

More than 23,000 visits to emergency rooms occur annually due to complications from taking dietary supplements such as herbal or complementary nutritional products, vitamins, and minerals, according to scientists from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration who coauthored the study. About 2,154 of the visits resulted in hospitalizations, the scientists reported.

The ER visits commonly involved young adults between ages 20 and 34 who’d taken weight loss or energy products. The most common symptoms were chest pain, palpitations, and elevated heart rate.

“More than 20 percent of emergency room visits were young children getting into supplements meant for somebody else,” Geller said.

About half of adults used at least one dietary supplement in the past month, and people spend billions on herbal or complementary nutritional products every year, according to the researchers.

In the study, weight loss or energy products caused 72 percent of supplement-related adverse events involving cardiovascular issues including chest pain, tachycardia, and heart palpitations.

To them with ears to hear let them hear:

And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer (Exodus 15:26).

Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, -Exodus 23:25

Christian: You should be acknowledging God in all of your way. Our thinking must differ from the world. To them with ears to hear let them hear.

If you’re looking for souls to fill the pews do not think it is found in assimilation for it is found in power. God used Paul to reach the masses and establish many churches through power.  Paul said my message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power (1 Corinthians 2:4).

So the next question is how do I get the power of God so that I do not have to assimilate the church to the world, that some may be tricked to come inside and when they come inside many leave for lack of power and those who stay become users of the church remaining babes in Christ. We lead them to the cross of Jesus Christ through the disciplines we have learned from scripture. Jesus Christ displayed disciplines that were critical for his power while he walked on the earth. His ministry begins with his relationship with the Father and then baptism and then fasting in the desert. I believe this is a model new believers should use. You have lived in the world a long time and the thoughts from that worldview are strong and the spiritual beings that would have you stay in bondage will continue to attract you. Paul begins his ministry the same way the only difference is that Paul fasts for three days and Jesus fasts for 40 days. I believe today as the New Testament church the three day fast is best.

Remember, we are talking about having power within the church that produces dancers for Christ alone and while we dance for him it will attract others to come watch us praise him. Who is worthy of this kind of praise?

The second discipline would be prayer to God for spiritual gifts, which consists of discerning of spirits, wisdom, healing, speaking in tongues and gifts of prophecy. Understand these things are not the means to an end but are disciplines for the display of power that Paul talks about in 1 Corinthians 2:4, for all of our ministry needs the covering of love and not simply the works for Christ shed his blood in love for those who would later be saved.

The third discipline would be to read your Bible every day in a translation that you find most helpful. The Lord gives understanding to those who ask for his guidance.

Lastly, although not the last thing that should be done, but here is a good starting point worship God in song, singing melodies in your heart to him, for he loves to be worshipped and adored and comes quickly to those who do. The choice of music should be based upon the thoughts that your mind conjure, for if so-called Christian music you are listening to causes you to think of thoughts that are not Christ center discard and find music that does. We want power in the church not wise persuasive words where the world may begin worshipping the messenger, we want power and this is how God through his word establishes it.

These disciplines are critical and the reason why this is not being followed is not because it is something difficult to interpret in scripture it is because it is not easy, but if the whole Christian Church were to grab a hold of the disciplines, like an athlete who trains for a trophy, we would not see the decay that is taking place.

Lord Jesus, help us turn our hearts, minds, and bodies back to you that you may heal our land.


I recall from the womb the first touch. The touch of the hands of my mother. The touch of the hands of my father. The touch of the hands of the doctor. The touch of the hands my Christian School Teacher, who would lay hands upon my head and speak a mystery, she called tongues. The touch of the greeting members at church. The touch of the coach. The touch of my first girlfriend. The touch of my brother and sister. The touch of my friends embrace, after facing trouble. The Bible has a lot to say about touching.

The unholy and immature thoughts of the godless may at first be offended. The abused and those hurting through inappropriate touching may strike cords of hatred, resentment and anger. Touching has been a tool used to manipulate and cause anguish, but there is a touch that brings healing and warmth. All touching is not good and there is an appropriate time for touching and a time to refrain from doing so, but in its proper season it is powerful.

The women with the issue of blood cried within herself if I but touch the garment of Jesus I would be made whole. Many where healed through the touch of napkins from the apostle Paul. The anointing may be transferred through touch (1 Tim. 4:14).  The letters you see upon the screen appear through the touch of my fingers upon the keys and if you glorify God from reading this post, I assure you that God will touch you.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests, which we have asked from Him (1 John 5:14-15).

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it (John 14:12-14).

And signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover (Mark 16:17-19).

P.S. you do not test God with the snake thing. If it happens then be confident. The same as casting devils out and laying hands on the sick. You are not to lay hands suddenly on any man. Everything the believer in Jesus does, must be done by following the Holy Spirit. That is why it is so important to have a relationship with Jesus and not a relationship with the Bible.

Ladies, if you did not catch it. This goes for you to. You should also be walking in this power. The only restriction in the word concerning women is the office of Bishop and Deacon for the purpose of good order and discipline.

If you are not learning how to have a relationship with Jesus in your church and walk with power, it is time to trade up.
