When you believe in God the Father and know His Son Jesus you have moved beyond the physical realm and have entered into the spirit. Once you are in the spirit you access the Father through prayer. You commune with God. You speak with God. Worship is a part of this realm. Singing songs and hymns to the Lord is in this realm. The presence and power of God is in this realm.
In the spirit you begin to be strengthened within your inner man. Your spirit/soul is strengthened and you become on fire. This fire that burns on the inside repels demons and causes them to tremble. A fire is placed in your eyes and weight has been granted to your words. Your words become life to those who receive them. Your desire in this realm is strictly for the Lord and you enjoy hearing his loving commands. It is in this realm where you receive your supernatural gifts. It is in this realm where you receive the mission for your life. The purpose for your existence is in this realm. Direction is in this realm.
Frequent prayer strengthens the believer because it gives you rest from the world. You leave the world and enter a new realm when you pray. You are transported from this world and now the spirit world has been opened and in this realm all things are possible to those who believe. In heavenly places you acquire tools that aid your earthly life. Tools that not only benefit you, but those who hear you.
Prayer is the door into this realm. This is why Satan hinders prayer. He does not want you access your strength and your gifts and those wonderful tools and jewels of wisdom that God grants to those who are faithful in coming to him in prayer. Keep praying. Pray everyday and ask the Lord Jesus how do I get those heavenly tools to work in the natural. Ask the Lord to show you what are the best tools for my current situation. Believe and you will receive access and wisdom.
There is a model in Scripture for the person who lives a life that pleases the Lord. There is a physical position that all will take whether willingly or unwillingly. Satanist have learned the power of positions in the form of yoga. The devil has revealed the spiritual implications of them that practice them. People who practice yoga will talk about being open, relaxed and filled with a spiritual release. Now this door opens one to the demonic realm and it brings all kinds of evil addictions that cling to the door opener and their family. Now God has a position for his believers and it is kneeling.
It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God” (Romans 14:11). To be made to bow before God will not be a good day, but to willingly take a knee, is safe. Written in the book of Psalm 95:6 the Psalmist writes “Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.” In Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians he say’s, “I ask you not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you, which are your glory for this reason I bow my knees before the Father, whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.” Taking a knee before the Lord in prayer is a position of strength. And Stephen kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep (Acts 7:60).
The knee is a symbol of submission, but more importantly it is the symbol that God sees. The sign of surrender that tells God I cannot handle the enemy before me and without your intervention, I am done. It is an acknowledgment of your weakness and an invitation for God to send you His power. Kneel before the Lord in prayer. Acknowledge your weakness and give God space to make you supernaturally strong.
Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare (Jeremiah 29:7). I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men for kings and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity. This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:1-4).
As Christians we cannot take daily breaks in praying for the leadership in the country you reside. It should be your natural routine to pray for Donald Trump and Mike Pence. That God direct them toward righteous and just decisions. Pray that God move in Congress in the name of Jesus. Keep praying for God to send thousands of angels into the white house and that the laws, executive orders and decrees work in the favor of Christians, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
As a Christian you have a responsibility to live holy and pray for others. You have a responsibility to pray for the leaders within your country. There is so much sin and corrupt behavior that each and every Christian should be spending at least an hour a day in prayer for other people. Another hour for your family. God has not left you here on this earth to ignore problems, but to be an example and to cry out to the Lord.
How many times does it say in the Bible the people cried out to the Lord and he heard them and rescued them? How many times did God, step in, in the book of Judges, for the people who asked God for help? Do you not see the criminal activity in our nation? Do you not care that genocidal behavior and sexual immorality is running unchecked and the hearts of many are growing cold?
There is no Scripture that tells the Christian to give up and hide. No seek the Lord while he still may be found. You are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. You can do all things through Jesus Christ. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Greater is he that is within you then he that is within the world. Bad news is your time to shine in prayer. Horrible news stories is your time to bury your words in the bosom of the Word.
If you bury your head in the sand, God will remember. You are not your own and you are bought with a price. That price is the blood of Jesus. Every Christian is supposed to be on the frontline praying for God’s will to be performed on earth. If you can watch hours of television and hide from bad news, you are part of the problem. Be careful that God does not say, I never knew you depart from me you worker of iniquity.
Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” – Luke 9:62
Activity in the natural is a slowed down version of activity in the spirit. Right now the enemy is working feverishly to position all of his players for the coming of Jesus Christ. It is important to understand that Satan, does not even know how much time he has left, but what he does know are the spiritual laws that God has set in place. When men open doors to sin, legalizing homosexuality, which is clearly against God’s word, it gives Satan a new set of licenses for him to use that enable him to have more control over larger parts of society.
The Bible says he comes to steal, kill, & destroy and he does that through licenses granted by God because of man authorizing/legalizing sin. Remember, the government has been established by God. He gave the government the sword (ability to punish its citizens) for the purpose of good order and discipline, but because of freewill, the rulers and authorities can use their God given power to harm its citizens with sinful laws. Thus opening the flood gates for Satan to kill & destroy.
How do you close the gates of murder and death? Pray that God would restore and entact laws that line up with the Bible and the death angel will be put at rest. Right now Satan is working on legalizing incest and bestuality. If he gets these passed this will give him almost full access to commit murderous fury. The linchpin from what I hear or the door he is using is the degenderization of the bathrooms. The goal isn’t sexual confusion, it is just a means for accessing another license from God to destroy. The goal is destruction.
Understand spiritual laws for your family. Husbands love your own wife and protect her. Do not mistreat her and have your prayers hindered. Satan is a superior spiritual lawyer and you should not be ignorant of his devices. Seek God’s face for discernment. Father’s lay hands on your children and pray that God protect and bless them. Satan is flexing and you better put on the whole armor of God.
