As I prayed, I saw in the spirit an oil derrick and it was being drilled. Suddenly I saw a gusher breakthrough and it went so high in the sky!
Many of you are like that; like being in that drilling process. You are seeking God and it feels like you are drilling and pressing in so hard!
But it has been so long and issues so frequent that you have questioned as to why you must go through such adversity. Some of you have questioned your very salvation.
Many of you have had such opposition that you began to question the validity of your experience with The LORD and have doubted.
Many have said that the battle is over. (Indeed, partially true) Yes, The LORD Jesus Christ once and for all settled our eternal salvation, but there are false doctrines out there which say we have no battles to contend in this life as a Christian!
We must put on our Armor and carry our Weapon, which is the Word of God! We must develop through knowing God’s Word — for the Word of God is our powerful weapon!
This weapon is like a two-edged sword and we must focus on God and focus our mind on where the real battles lie and which weapon, which scripture we must counter-attack with.
Jesus was tempted in all points like we are, but He was perfect and when He was tempted, He resounded, “IT IS WRITTEN….” (Matthew 4)
The battle is The LORD’s and He goes before us making every crooked path straight! There are many battles we face in our lives and if the battles were over, why do we need armor and the sword of the Spirit?
Fight against false doctrines and give them no place in your life! (Ephesians 6). Of course the enemy doesn’t want you to know you have the power to break his strongholds, plots, and schemes!
However, we are learning and becoming strong against the enemy, because of the weight of the resistance we face! [Resistance builds muscles!]
We are being trained so that our spiritual muscles grows and we become strong and great contenders against the enemy’s plans.
When we resist the demonic winds and fire, we are finding that opposition has actually pushed us closer to The LORD in intimacy and fiery fervency!
Satan does not go after people who are NOT a threat to his agendas. He goes after those who shall make a difference in this world for God. Your greatest moments in God come on the heels of great tests and trials.
The LORD will be glorified greatly with HIS end-time Army! His Army runs through a troop and leaps over walls defeating the plans of darkness!
You shall leap supernaturally over the enemy’s hurdles, as you are above and not beneath, the head and not the tail!
You shall be amazed at how God will manifest himself in your lives. Nothing is higher than God.
When we come into alignment with Him, all things are possible to them that believe! When the enemy comes in like a flood, God will use YOU to leap over every conspiracy and plan of darkness!
You are not alone and God is aware of all things in your lives! Remember, you are that STANDARD against the enemy that God is raising up.
This is your destiny coming to pass beloved! Just your presence intimidates the devil and his demons as they run in terror when you carry God’s presence!
We must continue to learn who we are in Christ and develop by getting that Word of God within, so we learn to take dominion and a stand wherever our feet take us!
I can see how The LORD is opening our understanding to deeper and greater heights.
I heard this, that The LORD wanted his beloved not to be afraid or dismayed, and that even in all their distractions and unplanned events, The LORD is still on His Throne and He has so many angels watching over you and they are helping you even though you may not feel it or see it.
The LORD wants you to know that HE is with you, even in distractions and events inspired by the enemy to keep you offline, off base, and to make you think you are vulnerable and have lost it!
You have been lassoed and you had to attend those events, but you longed for the Courts of God.
There are others who have lost important relationships, but you cannot control or change another person.
Forgive them! Release them! And then let them go.
The LORD knows you had no control over those unplanned events. Forgive yourself beloved. Trust The LORD and realize He is for you not against you.
Remember those who left you because of the cause of Christ, that they could not continue with you, because you have The Heart for The Father.
Be encouraged beloved…..
“The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born,” Matthew 26:24 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
