THE WRONG ALLIANCE, MARRYING JEZEBEL. PART 7

THE WRONG ALLIANCE, MARRYING JEZEBEL. PART 7

BY ISAIAH-PHILLIPS AKINTOLA

1 kings 16:29-34

As we continue to track the architect of the spirit of Jezebel so we can be prophetically equipped in dealing with it. We have reached a critical point in understanding how this spirit gets to infiltrate the community of God’s people and society.

There’s no better way to unveil the mystery of a spirit or character than being able to discover how such a spirit in the first place gets into such human space and heart. The formation of Alliances has always been one of the most effective instruments used for nations to prevent or stop protracted wars and battles between the two nations.

In most cases, this alliance is made through the payments of dowries and ransoms; and the given away of certain key villages, cities, or territories. But the most effective one is the giving away in marriage of the princess in most cases, or Prince in some case from one kingdom to the other as a seal of peace.

This idea as further been adopted by very wealthy and influential families across nations through the centuries for the purpose of keeping their riches, name, and fame from being corrupted by those deemed as the commoners or the ignoble of society. In the cases of Princess, often, they are usually prepared and groomed to be given away in marriage to other Kings or kingdom as a pawn that might become a very powerful and influential entity in the strategy of building or reinforcing alliance.

However, God, in his covenant sovereignty, wisdom, and relationship with the nation of Israel had pre-warned them never to go into any form of alliance with foreign, gentile nations. Not even ordinary Israelis citizens are allowed to marry from other nations under the Old Testament biblical law. They’ve been forbidden to marrying from countries that serves and worship foreign gods.

Marrying from nations that serves other gods outside the God of their fathers is a serious offense that carries severe punishment. Unfortunately, this violation has been of the greatest sins the children of Israel had committed in the sight of God by marrying and given their children in marriage to nations that worships Baal.

The plan of the Father for the children of Israel as a nation of a kingdom of priest was one of the reasons this law was promulgated. The issue of divine separation as a nation that will reflect the standard and glory of God to the rest of the world was and is still a major objective in the call to stand out from the rest of the world.

The easiest way for the enemy to infiltrate the prophetic activity of the Father in the earth is through wrong connections and alliance. As powerful as relationship means to the prophetic advancement of the purposes of God, particularly, a marriage relationship, so is relationship one of Satan’s key strategies in seeking to cripple, pollute, and destroy the agenda of God.

We today live in a world where what informs our connection to people is basically sensual and material base, and this has made it even easier for the enemy to carry out his diabolic attacks. If all we are preoccupied with is a pleasure to be derived from a relationship without considering another critical impact such a relationship will usher into our lives and space, then it means we really do not understand the effects of spiritual things around our lives.

The life and objective of a relationship cannot be genuinely comprehended through emotion or intelligence as highly important as they may be.  We need spiritual knowledge, insight, and wisdom in going into any kind of activity that we bind us with other people, so we are not taking advantage of through ignorance. Humans are carriers of spirits; these spirits can the right or wrong spirit.

Sometimes, the issues we are trying to resolve or make sense of in marriage or in our workplace are more of spiritual than just a position of bad attitude, and even in cases of bad character, these characters or attitudes can be traced to spiritual issues that seek to get us to a place of point of compromise by the enemy.  This is one of the major reasons we should be careful regarding who we define to be it friends or relationship, and worst still, who we finally decide to choose to be our life-partner in marriage. These are major, life decisions that cannot be made on face value or in the context of emotional excitement.

Marriage is not just about two people coming to live together because they both claim to ‘love’ each other. Love is a big part of our lives we, unfortunately, know very little about. There is great advantage to marriage when we understand its main purpose and objective from God’s perfect ice, after all, marriage was his idea. Unfortunately, there are also serious consequences to marriage when we ignorantly ignore the foundational values and framework that ought be in place before we go into a covenant of marriage.

In Joshua chapter 6 we see a terrible mistake made by the children of Israel under the military leadership of Joshua regarding the Gibeonite. The children ignorantly allowed themselves to be tricked into false alliance to present the Israelites from attacking the Gibeonite.

Marriage is one of the highest levels of blood covenant and when it’s made ignorantly without a precise, biblical, prophetic direction, we can directly or indirectly bind ourselves to certain obligations, contracts, covenant, or even influence of the powers of darkness.

In relating to the people of God, insecurity and the lack of trust is what pushes most of the kings to join affinity with other nations, particularly, through the medium of marriage. In the cases of others, it’s just the issue of lust like we see in relations to King Solomon and King Ahab.

One of the main things that brought Solomon with his great wisdom, wealth, and power down as the Son of one of the greatest Kings ever lived in human history, King David, was his love for foreign women, and the scripture told us that Solomon foreign wives turned his heart away from the love of the God of his Father David. The bible told us that they tuned Solomon heart away from God when he began to get old. As we begin to track the fall of great kingdoms, empires, and ordinary people right from bible days to this present day, one can see is clear that great men and leaders fall due to marrying the wrong person.

AHAB MARRIED JEZEBEL.

The marriage of princess Jezebel the daughter of King Ethbaal, a Phoenician empire was a serious crime in the sight of God that brought terrible consequence to the house of Ahab, and the entire nation of Israel. Ahab, the son of Omri did not just marry Jezebel due to the issue of protecting his kingdom, at least, the scripture never suggested this; Ahab took Jezebel in marriage due to arrogance, and lust in disobedience to the command of the Lord.

As many theologians will further confirm that Jezebel was not just a mere Princess but in fact, she was a priestess of Baal. She was a direct worshipper of Beelzebub, and we will later see how she turned the capital of Israel that became Samaria to the capital of Baal worship. Beyond the sin of Jeroboam that was committed by Ahab, he further angered God by going to join hands in marriage to a nation that is openly committed to the worship of idols. Idolatry is one of the highest crimes any human, family, or society can commit before God.

Because of the leadership position and influence of Ahab, he exposed the entire nation to the spirit of Beelzebub, and this is where the judgement of God took another turn regarding the nation of Israel. As we can see the scripture that the direct judgement of God against Baal worship was is an attack on the economy and that’s because Baal worshippers believed that Baal is the provider of rain and good crops.

UNMASKING JEZEBEL’S ARCHITECTURE OVER THE NATIONS. Part 6

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

MASTERING THE BABYLONIAN LANGUAGE. Part 6

Another powerful strategy of the enemy which is part of the narrative of the spirit of Jezebel is the altering of words and their meaning, and I’ll like to highlight this point briefly we before begin to deal with the issue of how Jezebel infiltrate our lives, families, community and society.

Words, language, phrases are some of the most powerful tools in capturing and expressing culture. There’s absolutely no way we can capture the spirit of an Age or civilization without understanding the lingua of such society. Today, new language is be coined while old, relevant words are systematically being eroded, and this is what I’ll like us to briefly consider.

Undoubtedly there are all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning. 11 If then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone is saying, I am a foreigner to the speaker, and the speaker is a foreigner to me. 1 Corinthians 14:10-11

The more I look into the scripture in the context of what we are assigned to represent in the 21st-century society, the more I see a lack of preparation and almost the sense of total disconnection in terms of awareness and understanding of the nature of the season.

Being a sheep among wolves requires a deeper sense of the operation of the Spirit of wisdom, and being wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove is certainly operating from another realm of life that gives us the edge to effectively represent the eternal intentions of the Father is an ever-increasing hustle society.

The nature and character of the days we’ve been brought into demand we are skilled in all the langue of the Chaldeans, the Babylonians, and the Egyptians, and we should stop seeing this idea as a foreign idea or unbiblical.  As we know, Jesus spoke Aramaic because that was the language of the day.  The big question we should be asking ourselves is, what is today’s language?

When I speak of language, please note that I am not merely referring to lingua franca but the generation ideological, operating interface within societies; a manner of thinking that connects people, places, things and even machines in a manner that allows a general communication and understanding. Every generation developed and operated through this kind of language they adopted in promoting certain values, beliefs and ideologies we sought to promote.

Cultures, ideologies, traditions and captured within the language. Language is the total sum of what defines our identity.

As we can notice, the past three decades or so, the world and its philosophers have been busy developing a new language that has almost become matured in use to promote their ideology today but the church has been caught sleeping in combatting the wrong ideology behind this language.

One unique thing we witness throughout the scripture that gave the people of God the edge to stand out even in times of captivity is their ability to quickly learn and use the language of their captors as an advantage to advance the purposes of God.  Indeed, language is a medium of communication. However, we are seeing various forms of communicating today that goes way beyond two people merely talking. Communication today has become a very powerful tool to imprint and establish a philosophy that is weaponized to kill, steal, and destroy.

The art of communication has become one of the most lucrative 21st-century business that yields lots of profit. My point, however, is not just about the profiting side of communication but to highlight the deliberate war on destroying the meaning and definition of words, as they are today viewed to serve the certain narratives and agendas.

Society is being assaulted from all angles by those whose agenda is to destroy the very fiber of society and sought to change the order of things redesign. Language today, has transcended to the level of ideology; an ideology that should promote certain ‘progressive beliefs’

We live in a day where we are constantly being bombarded by various voices, opinions, and ideologies that society seek to impress upon us regardless of our interest or not. Unfortunately, many within the community of the Church have not been adequately sensitized and prepared for these kinds of subtle confrontations.

Indeed, these voices, when we face them, come across aggressively, demanding we take a side, and of cause, they want us to take their side because they’ve tried to desensitize the minds of many us using phrases the promotes their ideology of the new world order they are trying to create. 

Many spiritual leaders are yet to fully comprehend the nature and complexity of the battle before the Church, and I do hope this few points will wake us up as we confront the spirit of Jezebel and other powerful Satanic principalities.

While I strongly believe the Father gave the Church the platform of social media to propagate the gospel of Christ to the lost, and to serve as a melting point to speak redirection to the disgruntled members of the lost sheep of God. We are yet to understand that the social media just like other platforms is actually a 21st-century language we must learn like Daniel and his friends learnt the language of the Babylonians in other to carry out the mandate of the kingdom.

Those who are masters of language will determine the direction of society, its philosophy and economy. Everything today has a coded language that should be learnt in order to utilize its power or influence. We, as the ecclesia is in the midst of powerful warfare, and this war is all about influencing other nations.

THE POWER OF LANGUAGE IN THE DEVELOPMENT CIVILIZATION

One of the main reasons countries like America and China are fighting what is termed as economic war is for the single reason of language. As I said, languages, which the scripture also refers to as voices, has gone beyond voice communication to an ideological war that is playing out on every form of system that made has created to establish his dominance.

In other words, those who are skilled in computer language have the edge of power and influence. Introducing computer program language from early childhood is necessary and highly critical for any nation or society to service. 

Someone of the wealthiest companies today is those dealing with computer language and pregaming. I have used these points to further stress the point I am making.

The world of social media has become a tool to increase the volumes of the voices and noises to distract many away from the pathway of sound moral judgement.  There is all kind of voices today that have been empowered and indeed, amplified through the tool of social media that has brought more confusion and challenges regarding being able to ascertain what the Spirit of the Lord will have many knows.

When we talk about information overload, we are dealing with a reality that has come to define the culture and structural fabric of today’s society. We are at the twilight of a new sociocultural revolution; a revolution that is not fought with guns and sword but with language and what I define as New Age opinions.

In the last three decades or so, the English language has dramatically revolved to the point that the meanings of certain key words that defines our social lifestyle have been forced to change their meaning, or in some cases have been reduced to obsolescence.  Words are losing their true meaning, and this is a deliberate act in reconfiguring how we process thoughts, meaning, intentions, and actions.

The agenda of the powers of darkness in this season carries various faces of expression as we have earlier discussed, all depending on the position of the battle line they find themselves and the objective they seek to achieve.  As we continue to witness the systematic introduction of certain phrases and words into the society the idea is to reprogram how we see, process and accept meanings.  One of the keyways the enemy can infiltrate any heart or space is to change the meaning of words, particularly, if those words expresses certain sense of morality, accountability and demand to correctness.

The American society and a larger part of Europe have lost a major ground during the first battle around language in the last three decades, and the loss opened the door for certain ideologies and philosophy to be introduced their society to the point that an average teen or adult today are struggling to comprehend or appreciate the meaning of certain words that ought to give them moral definition and a deep sense of correctness.

Right from the beginning of time, language has played a major role in the development of humans and the desire to build a strong, shared community, and we saw this greatly impressed during the building of the tower of Babel. Every time there’s a need to build a tower of [Babel] rebellion, human always seeks for a common language to implement such a task, even if they have nothing in common with each other. The enemy also play behind the call and support for

[global]

unity for as long as such call play towards its diabolic agenda.

UNMASKING JEZEBEL’S ARCHITECTURE OVER THE CHURCH AND THE NATIONS. PART 4

Principle of spiritual authority

 and governmental warfare

by Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

Part 4

DEALING WITH THE GENERAL OVERVIEW OF

THE PRESENT NATURE OF ENGAGEMENT IN WARFARE.

Hebrews 11 32-38

32 And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson and Jephthah, about David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies.

35 Women received back their dead, raised to life again.

There were others who were tortured, refusing to be released so that they might gain an even better resurrection. 36 Some faced jeers and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. 37 They were put to death by stoning; e they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated— 38 the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, living in caves and in holes in the ground.

This highlighted scripture above defines the spiritual framework and character posture the ecclesia must assume as a kingdom priestly regents Heaven is empowering and releasing in this season of engaging the ongoing, complex issues and challenges the nation’s and creation is faced with under the insidious influence of the activity of Jezebel.

Divine upgrade

it is important to note that there’s a current, general update and upgrading of our spiritual base and the apostolic resources at our disposal in order to be effectively and efficiently prepared to  engage; this is to prevent us from being trapped by the same religious web of division and extremism that entangled many in the past who tried representing the purposes of God from a very shallow, narrow, and myopic perspective.

What is Gods agenda for the earth in this new day?

The Father’s agenda is to fill the earth {people} with the knowledge of his glory through a company of priesthood, emerging with the ascended revelatory reality of the son, but functions from an ascended, eternal realm of representation, the pattern of our ministry priesthood must change from the obsolete first and second day reality of representation; we must come into the ascended ministry lifestyle of Melchizedek.

Functioning within the framework authority and power of this priesthood is highly important if we must effectively move and function within the current Satanic activity challenging our position and identity in Christ.

The remnant of individuals who will live and function within the framework of the ongoing complex, false order off the earth must have shift from the house of Saul to the present, restored {house} tabernacle of David, and that is because only David carries the ascended insight of the authority of the kingdom to face and behead the giant, evil system challenging us today.

Beyond this, these company of men and woman will carry and operate in the iconic spirit of the patriarchs. Each of the Patriarchs represent a dimension of grace, wisdom, strategy, and capacity that must function in the power of corporate unity in dislodging the spirit of Darkness before us.

 These are days where Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joseph, Esther, Ruth, Elizabeth, Mary, and the rest are all being awaken within the hearts of the saints, emerging in their various respectable position in defeating the spirit of humanist, Satanic activity distorting the prophetic mandate of God for creation.

There’s no doubt that the Spirit of the Lord is forcefully leading the Body of Christ to a new position of more advanced, governmental engagement which requires we shift from our old position towards a more accurate, matured reality of the prophetic requirement of the Spirit for the season.

The nature of spiritual resistance and opposition we are faced with today, demands the finest of the Spirit of wisdom and faith. There’s a need we redefine and update our prophetic insight in order to be strategically repositioned with maximum, sustained capacity to advance.

The mandate of entering to repossess our lost spiritual space and heritage as legitimate, custodians of the earth has become an assignment that cannot be neglected nor defer to the future, yet, we have to advance with caution due to the kind of subtle but powerful enemy we are contending with.

The prophetic objective of rebuilding and restoring the architectural structure of the burnt gates and broken walls of lives, families, institutions, and the society at large, will certainly demand we move towards a more advanced, prophetic engagement towards all illegitimate spirits and entities at the gates.

Maintaining a biblically sound and balanced spiritual [perspective] neutrality in responding and representing the eternal agenda of the kingdom of God within a sharply, racially charged, and divided society is highly critical, if we are to truly manifest the spirit of redemption, healing and restoration to creation, and ultimately, reign with Christ in his millennial kingdom Age.

We cannot afford to be found biased, religious, and denominational in our prophetic philosophy and perspective as we advance in this season. Every form of charismatic, blind spot and misconceptions regarding the ascended, operational pattern and direction of the kingdom and its initiatives in this season must be thoroughly examined and addressed before we step out again in divine representation.

The position of our utilization of kingdom authority and power in warfare should be strictly built on the apostolic template of Christ nature and character which must not be compromised by any form of religious assumption, humanist beliefs, or some form of an overt, nationalistic, prejudicial attitudes.

This is the day of the operation of the kingdom values and principle, meaning, we have to test whatever we’ve been taught to believe in our various church community within the principles of the kingdom so we are not found to be misrepresenting Christ out there in the name of our own traditional, charismatic Church believes or expectations.

The standard is, if any man be in Christ and not in a church, such a person is a new creation, behold, old [ways, patterns, culture, ideologies, and philosophy] things have passed away, observe, all things have become new. The operational position of those in Christ is a spiritual value and posture of an ever-increasing newness. Newness should reflect the position of advanced spiritual development, perception, interaction, and engagement with all humans and creation regardless of how hateful or bitter they may be to us.

When Joshua met the captain of the Lord of host standing, he asked him if he was for them or against them, the captain of the Lord of the host said, am neither for both sides. This is an important truth and attitude we need to understand and embrace in a day where polarization has become the order of political engagement.

Religious bias and other forms of humanist prejudice will not only blind our insight from seeing the intention and direction of the Lord in this hour, but will in fact, cripple our ability and capacity to effectively engage in the arts of advance prophetic initiatives, even as we are called to charge in warfare against the spirit of Jezebel and the high places of our communities, cities and generation.

Laying this foundational narrative is crucial, because many are still divided behind some charismatic, religious ideological differences, fueled on racial grounds, depending on which side of the fence they find themselves. To develop a biblically sound world view in dealing with the socio-cultural and economic divides is to allow the Spirit of the Lord to first strip us of our presumptive ideas and knowledge, gathered under the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

 Secondly, is to allow the Father to enlighten and broaden our spiritual standpoint regarding the current political or socioeconomic realities of our time, which I usually term as a position of prophetic spectrum.

As we know, when a ray of light passes through a fraction prism, what we experience is a spectrum of colors. This truth is the same when considering the idea of allowing the light of God’s truth to pass through and permeate our spiritman, what happens is, we effectively see and identify the various, glorious, unique beauty and identity of the Father for each person, family, community, nation, continent, and of course, this generation as a whole.

PROPHETIC PRISM AND THE POSITION OF ELIJAH

To understand and effectively Administrate the justice system of the kingdom of God on earth, which is totally different in view and value from the humanist and religious viewpoint, is to be ready to prophetically represent the priestly, governmental authority of the kingdom of God according to Isaiah chapter 11.

A prophetic student will be keenly aware that one of the manifest Spirit of the last days and before the final coming of Christ is the spirit of Elijah, and we are told that this spirit, or, the posture of life if you will, carries the authority of reformation and restoration in the earth. We’ve seen the progressive released of this spirit in a dimension, right from the days of John the Baptist and throughout church history. Today, we are witnessing a greater outpour and the release of this spirit as we confront one of the deadliest, Satanic assault, unleashed upon this generation.

The restorative, prophetic capacity of the spirit and ministry of Elijah in this season is a clear sign of the accelerated nature of kingdom activity that is currently taking place across the earth. The emergence of the spirit of Elijah amongst other apostolic governmental grace being restored to the ecclesia is a high watermark in the call to the arena of divine representation, even as the day of the Lord becomes more eminent.

The kingdom of God is suffering violence, and the violence we must be ready to take by divine enforcement of kingdom truth. We shall further consider the relevant position and influence of the spirit of Elijah as we track the position of divine confrontation.

THE NATURE OF THE ENEMIE’S ATTACK

Therefore, in the context of this apostolic framework, our war gear of readiness and engagement must totally reflect what we see in Isaiah 11. Elijah which is a type of the Carmel skin we should wear in this season must be dressed in these qualities of spirit of Christ described as the full armor of God according to Ephesians chapter 6. Having brought this into perspective, we then need to begin to understand the nature of the common enemy of the kingdom we are assigned and dressed to deal with as a type of a Davidic generation, assigned to watch our father’s sheep.

Our position as watchmen requires that we are truly positioned with the capacity to watch the Lord’s sheep which is way beyond the walls of our local churches and families. We must be prepared to watch and guard the sheep against the humanist and religious lions and bears of our time. The spirits and assigned wicked systems out there now charging against the vulnerability and identity of the sheep of the Father out there must be protected across the nations.

THE VARIOUS FACES AND OBJECTIVE OF SATANIC ATTACK

Unmasking these lions and bears are a critical aspect of the current prophetic upgrade, so we can effectively channel our Strategic attack. There are several types of enemies with their unique focus of attack against the children of Israel as we see in the scripture. Each character manifested by the enemy reflects a specific objective of result in the mission to destroy the redemptive mandate of God for his people and the nations.

A significant number of the enemy’s attacks on the people of God are carried out through their own acts of rebellion and disobedience, and in some cases, their ignorance to the values and demand of the Lord as they are being led to their Promised Land.  It is critical we take time to study and carefully examine the various character, focus, methods, and objectives the enemy applies in launching its assault against the children of Israel.

This is important in unveiling the systematic idea of attack against the current Church and society in general. When the enemy, through a particular nation like the Philistine launches an attack, and decides to produce a key figure like the giant, Goliath of Gath, behind such an attack is an objective which is more stronger than the very confrontation itself which is to send a message to the nation of Israel and the next generation, and this message is fear and intimidation.

Fear was a powerful, effective weapon the Philistine and the Midianites used in trying to cripple the entire army of Israel from fighting until a young teenager who had conquered the spirit of fear, through the abiding presence of the Father in his life charged against Goliath.

We noticed the same concept of engagement about Giedion when he was called to lead his people to fight the Midianites and see to the freedom of the economic siege the Midianites waged against his people.  [Judges 6]

You’ll notice that the moment little David killed Goliath, the entire army of the Philistine fled, and the army of Israel that was once crippled by fear suddenly got bold and courageous as they chase after the army of the Philistine and defeated them. This is a powerful, strategic concept of tactical warfare playing out in our own very eyes today.

The enemy is using fear and intimidation against the Church, and many churches and its leadership have gone hiding. The spirit of Jezebel and the Midianites has pushed many into some holes and cave to hide; we’ve lost our voices on issues that truly matter. We are afraid to speak out against things we know we should not defend.

There’s but one enemy in the kingdom of darkness and we all know his name, but this enemy wear different faces; manifest different characters, expresses itself through various philosophical beliefs and uses different methods of attacks depending on what he desires to achieve in the battle.

The launch and objective of an attack, using culture or religion, seeks to creates a different objective and impact from the launch of attack, using slavery, racism, sexual perversion, and it certainly different from an attack that comes through poverty, sickness, or even some other forms of freedom and liberty, without a true sense of respect, responsibility or accountability to mention a few.

The enemy is a Strategist, master planner in launching his attack on humans, and where there’s no clear, prophetic, governmental oversight, societies, which includes, the church, becomes highly vulnerable and victims of such attack unfortunately.  As we understand this natural phenomenon, we Begin to gain keen insight into the nature of spiritual warfare, and the various methods the powers of darkness employ in attacking the church’s position and identity as the nation of God in the earth.

This understanding I’ve tried to lay down as a foundational framework of what we are trying to track through this message gives us the context of why I’ll like us to carefully examine the spirit of Jezebel as one of the most advance, Satanic, method of attacks in this season of kingdom warfare.

Principle of spiritual authority

 and governmental warfare

2 Corinthians 10

4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 6 And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

Part 3

Unmasking the architecture of Jezebel

WHO DEFINES YOUR RIGHT AND WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF JEZEBEL?

In this part three we are going to be defining the spirit of Jezebel, but before we do that, lets conclude the thought of line we’ve established in our former article on part 2

Continuation

The enemy the Church is confronting today is not interested in fighting a random battle; he is very deliberate, precise, and strategic in his use of weaponry and the nature of how the battle should play out.

Therefore, we must never put ourselves in a situation where the enemy can define the battleground or the weapon of warfare.

When we allow the enemy to use his narrative of weapons known as gender inequality, gender insensitivity, feminism, gay right,  child right, human right, social justice, and the so many ideas of reasons, defined through its own paradigm narratives, values, and belief system, we will eventually become entrapped and defeated.

The enemy has mastered the art of using State machinaries in circumventing legitimate reasons for specific laws and policies of the land.

The devil today is using sensual, humanist, ideologies, and wisdom as an effective tool in trying to frustrate and prevent the values and standard of the kingdom of God from being established in society.

Giving our rights to another definition of rights and false advocacy is the most foolish thing we can do, and am afraid, we have done.

By giving our rights to some advocacy with a different agenda that refuses to acknowledge the values and moral identity of God’s definition is indirectly abdicating our authority to the lies of the enemy who is entering our gardens again to challenge the authority and influence of heaven’s values over our space.

We cannot afford to make the same mistake the first man-made in the Garden. We cannot afford to get into slumber as women again; we cannot allow the enemy to use our inherent power of influence persuasion to manipulate things against the order of God.

You cannot allow the enemy to pervert and corrupt your administrative capacity to destroy what we are called to build and protect, and lastly, women, you cannot afford to offer your Bodies to fallen [spirits] angels’ knowns as sons of God to birth illegitimate, rebellious sons in the earth again. Genesis chapter 6

We are today is women today engaging in sexual intercourse with demonic spirits to gain influence, power, authority to push their agenda of male dominance.

Then one of the seven angels with the seven bowls came and told me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. 2The kings of the earth were sexually immoral with her, and those who dwell on the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her immorality.” … Revelation 17:1-2

Spirits carry no gender

When we deal with a Satanic force like Goliath, we should know that we are dealing with in terms of the spiritual character that would manifest on the battleground. In most cases, we might find ourselves dealing with an intimidating, domineering male figure kind of character, that takes advantage of our lack of spiritual covering, insecurity, fear, and of course, the lack of the assurance of the presence of God.

Spiritual things are not limited, or necessarily defined by the gender they dress to manifest themselves.  I shall further explain is concept later, because I do think it’s highly important we deal with this misconception the enemy has often used to shut down certain important issues and teachings we need to carry out in the Body of Christ or even in the society because we don’t want to sound to be offending the opposite sex.

There’s no room for ignorance or sentiment in this season of advanced warfare.  There’s a reason why the Father sent his Son to die for humanity as a male man and not a woman, and there’s a reason why wisdom is often referred to as a figure of a woman. If you study the book of revelation, you’ll immediately notice that the ultimate battle is between two women and not two men. In fact, the battle of creation right from the book of Genesis to the book of the end-revelation is about two women, two kinds of wisdom, and two types of knowledge.

God did not create the woman as the man’s competitor; no. Elohim, in his sovereign wisdom, authority, and power created the woman as man’s [complement] completion. If this perspective is not clear, we will always embrace the humanist narrative of the New Age which has almost succeeded in putting the woman against the man, and this is the number one reason many Churches, marriages and families are imploding and collapsing today.

Everything the Father does, carries a unique, prophetic, fingerprint objective, and we should carefully seek to understand his ways and arrangements of life in the light of these objectives, including the role and position of the female and male, man, so we don’t fall into the deception of the New Age spirit that is pushing certain feminist narrative that is painting God as bias or sexist. We must track and unravel the nature of spirit manifesting through an antagonistic, feminist and humanist character.

If we neglect to address this important aspect, am afraid that we have bought into the very narrative the enemy wants the Church and the nations to accept. Both the beautiful image, character, and inherent administrative value of women is currently under relentless assault, and many of our sisters, particularly, our church women have not yet truly identified this attack, even though we all can see these devastating assaults against our homes and family institutions.  So, let us attempt to define what the spirit of Jezebel is as we continue to unravel the operation of this evil spirit.

DEFINING THE SPIRIT OF JEZEBEL

And you know what is now restraining him, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one who now restrains it will continue until he is taken out of the way. 8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will slay with the breath of His mouth and annihilate by the majesty of His arrival.… 2 Thessalonians 2:6-8

Revelation 2:18

From the points we’ve highlighted we can begin to have a vivid image of this entity anointed to fight and resist the plan and purposes of God for a nation, society, family, and individuals. We must make it plain again that while the default operational framework of this spirit function through the persona of a female character, it is, however, not a female spirit as we have explained, nor is the spirit limited to a woman character as much as it prefers a woman character to operate.

Jezebel is an operational, governmental principality that is set up from the powers of darkness to frustrate the redemptive and prophetic initiatives of God over nations. To effectively identify the image and character of this spirit we will have to go to the book of Revelation. Any spirit we see in the Old Testament that shows up again in the book of revelation is worthy of note because there’s every likelihood that we are dealing with a territorial and generational principality.

Like I’ve said earlier, Jezebel is a principality assigned over realms that seeks to control, corrupt, hinder, frustrate and destroy in order and pattern of God’s intent. When our Lord Jesus Christ described Satan as a thief that has come to steal, kill, and destroy, this description perfectly fit into the character of Jezebel.

Beyond the fact that Jezebel kills the prophets of God and send the Saints into hiding, she is in fact, a thief that forcefully takes want doesn’t belong to her and kills the owner as we see in the case of Naboth [1 Kings 21:5-6].  This spirit goes further to destroy men’s identity by emasculating their manhood by destroying the entire family order and system of existence. Further still, Jezebel turns the hearts of a whole nation from serving the true God according to the biblical pattern of worship to serving Baal which is her primary objective.

In other words, the pursuit of idol worship [the worship of self, feminism] and sexual perversion is the trademark of the spirit of Jezebel when she is unleashed upon society. The scripture informs us that when Jehu was sent to carry out the final judgment of God upon Jezebel that she beautifies her face and dressed her heir, postured herself by the window to entice Jehu.

If Jehu was never (empowered by the Spirit) anointed by the prophet of God for this high-level assignment, I believe that Jehu would have been seduced by Jezebel’s charm, and he would have been able to carry out the execution against her.  All the Spirit of the Lord is highlighting regarding this evil spirit has a direct implication and lesson for us today, so, we are not entrapped by the seductive, destructive spirit of Jezebel.

 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness a is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

The spirit of Jezebel is one of the major high places that demands we collaborate our God-given governmental grace, resources, and capacity to effectively deal with, less, our children and the next generation continue to suffer her attack. It took a three-generational anointing to finally destroy this spiritual entity wearing the persona of a woman.  

My prophetic mandate is to unmask the architectural structure of this powerful Satanic spirit that has crawled into the very framework of society and is now expressing false prophetic and teaching spirit within the Body of Christ.

As we can see according to the book of Revelation chapter two that this Satanic spirit took upon herself a persona of a prophet and claimed the position of a teacher. These are two profound areas that shape the minds and believe system of the people of God, and the society we are assigned to disciple, and if we allow this spirit to capture the office and ministry of the prophet and that of the teacher, our apostolic thrust is as good as being compromised. It’s important we state this point clear that there’s no bias in the Father; he does not choose sides.

To limit our acceptance or rejection of the spirit of Jezebel on the premise of gender indeed, reflects our immaturity and the lack of spiritual understanding regarding the ministry of redemption, of cause, to live in some form of self-denial in the operation of this spirit within individuals, families, community and nations is to have bought the lies and deception of the enemy.  The Enemy throughout history as used the card of race, gender, religion, culture, and inequality to mention a few, to perpetuate his destructive agenda, but the church itself, in her spiritual blindness, has exacerbated this evil.

God in his wisdom, created male and female as part of his eternal prophetic plan and governmental administrative executives on earth. The structure of community which begins from the family unit is a powerful expression of the Father’s wisdom and creativeness in growing and developing humanity. These two organs of government called man and woman carries a unique assignment in the support and execution of the Father’s eternal program on earth. We shall later expand on this thought as we continue to develop the foundational framework of this subject.

The first time I did an intensive teaching on this subject was in the year 2001, and in fact, I found one of the notes I wrote back then on this subject recently, and the truth is, there’s still a great sense of relevancy and coherency to what the Spirit of the Lord said back then to the current emphasis of the Spirit of the Lord. The only difference is that my understanding of interpreting what was written then is now broadened and clearer as the spirit of wisdom has brought perspective and maturity in the arts of prophetic insight and interpretation.

The nature of spiritual activity today has drastically changed at an accelerated level since 2001 yet, the problems back then, are as vicious and complex as they are today. But as we can see, these challenges, particularly, the attack on race, morality, truth, justice, and religious rights have become more hostile to the point of polarizing society. It’s as if the stage is being set for the anti-Christ, the man of sin to take the stage openly.

The manifestation of Satanic forces of the earth has been so unprecedented, and therefore, it will be right for us to begin to contextualize the present prophetic activity of God, particularly when we examine what is currently playing out within the political ideology of the nations around the world but in particular, the United State of America due to its power and influence globally. It is important we thoroughly examine the present battle taking place in America, to appreciate the degree of the influence and impact of the spirit of Jezebel.

The principle of soul redemption.

FOR SOUL REDEMPTION. NOTE 3

PRESUMING SPIRITUAL MATURITY

Thanks for stopping by to read the concluding article on this subject, I hope it will help to realign your heart to the current emphasis of the Lord, or maybe, reaffirm the things you already know regarding this vital subject.

There are still lots of loose ends regarding our understanding of redemption we need to carefully address, especially in this period, heaven is inviting us to a more ascended, position of governmental authority and representation.

Countless many, as we can see in the word of God and in modern history were defeated by the enemy during their prime days of strength and glory. A very good example of this is that of Rehoboam, Son of King Solomon. The scripture affirms that when Rehoboam’s position as the King of Israel was firmly established with all the fortified cities he had built and the great numbers of armies at his disposal, he and the rest of the people abandoned the laws and ways of God.

It was clear that this king did not understand the principle of redemption, solidly built on an ongoing, developmental relationships. He thought he could use God to achieve something grand for himself and the nation with maintaining a heart of love and commitment to the ways of God.  This is the same value system many have applied towards their relationship and interaction with the things of the Spirit, and this is the reason why many are struggling to find joy, peace, and righteousness in their so-called Christian faith.       

2 Chronicles 12:1-2

After Rehoboam’s position as king was established and he had become strong, he and all Israel a with him abandoned the law of the Lord. Because they had been unfaithful to the Lord, Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem in the fifth year of King Rehoboam.

For us to effectively present ourselves as accompany of them ready to represent the Father’s prophetic intention for this season, we must close the various gaps of truth, insight, Revelation, and wisdom within the basic philosophy of our spirituality.

Becoming an integrated, spiritual, kingdom entity is a must in our qualification of advancement to the next frontier, and I do believe this is one of the main reasons the Spirit of the Lord is calling our attention to this subject of the salvation of the Soul.

What differentiates David from Saul was where they stand regarding the work with God in leading the people, and how they responded to the voice of God when they were both found wanting. Perfection is never about a sinless life as critically important, we daily press towards a sacred life of consecration, but about how we honestly respond to our sinful acts.

King Saul responded with lies, deceit, and self-glory to the voice of God’s judgment while David responded in repentance, humility, and submission to the judgment of God. These two individuals highlight the configuration of the hearts of those called and anointed by God to carry out an assignment for him.  Pride and self-deception are one of the most powerful weapons the enemy has used right from the days of the fall of the first man and his wife in the garden. 

To effectively deal with the dysfunctional character, nature within us, we must be honest, truthful and willing to allow God into every aspect of our lives. Those who hide behind the term, ‘am a Christian’ without adhering to the value standard of a Christ-like life are deceiving themselves, and the enemy loves such individuals.    

 Apostle Paul, in his letter to Timothy, who was the resident Elder of the Church of Ephesus, highlighted this critical point, which is still the main challenge of today’s Church, which is, the idea that we can replace authenticity with a form. A form is that which looks like, feels like, sound like, but in fact, it’s fake. This text speaks of having a form of godliness but denying its power is something that should seriously concern any true spiritual leader and any serious follower of Christ.

The form of godliness has almost replaced the authentic, particularly, amongst spiritual leadership, and this has unfortunately opened the many lives to the lies of the enemy, particularly in the arena of spirituality. Many of the messages, teachings, and so-called biblical initiatives we see being practiced today are nothing but products of forms of godliness while the power of the gospel of the kingdom is being denied.

This lie has eaten deep into how the majority see and relate to the salvation’s relationship. There’s a lot of activity to show some sense of commitment to the ways of God while deep beneath the hearts of this professed believers this a disconnection. The mismatch in the Church today is a serious issue of not understanding the nature or function of the operation of the Soul, which I believe needs to be urgently addressed before it’s too late.

THE COST OF PRESUMPTION

To presume, and generalize knowledge, and the progressive experience in spiritual subjects is to make one of the greatest errors in the art of spiritual journey. Spiritual things from biblical perspective are often not related to formulas. Secondly, when it comes to the issue of Spiritual maturity, you begin to talk about the reality of kingdom principle and Christ lifestyle which is alien to what many have come to believe and accept as Christianity today.

Most of the teachings and traditions being practiced in our Christian gathering and denominations are a clear extension of the refined Roman-catholic Spirit and Judaism, traditional practice. These two schools of thoughts are the most influential customs that influence what today known and called the Christian religion is, and of course, they are not consistent with what Christ established as his ecclesia.  You must have noticed that this two-main influence, with many others, carries a form of godliness, but denies the power of right biblical value relationship.    

A FORMULA OF RELATIONSHIP, WHICH ONE SHALL IT BE?

A formula by design will always give a predicted result as long as your calculation is defined and precise in relating to your expected result. However, in spiritual dealings and realities, you can accurately get all the formulas right and still not arrive at your predictive, expected outcome. Why? The Father never intends to relate to his body of the earth from a mentality or perspective of some formulas or laws. Yes, in our early days of the salvation experience, we might assume that the Father can be related to from a position of specific formulas.

MY PERSONAL JOURNEY

 Example, I could still remember when I was growing in the Lord, often times when I pray regarding certain issues of need, I will usually get my prayer answered almost exactly the way I have requested it. I had somewhat mastered the formula of my approach to God in terms of what I desire him to do in my life, and to some level, it seems the Father was playing along in relating to me in terms of this limited, somewhat religious mind frame I was using to approach him.

I was innocent, naïve, or even ignorant regarding the ways of the kingdom. Back then, I am not sure if I do understand what salvation truly means and how to experience the spiritual life within my new relationship with the Father.

All I did was an extension of what I see many do around. I didn’t understand that there’s anything like spiritual development or the right protocol value of approaching the things of the kingdom. All I understood was the language of the word of faith; confess it and claim it, and then, a lot of hype in my praise and prayers; and of course, a passionate sense of worship without necessarily understanding what I was doing as long as there’s the result. I was result oriented and not principle and value focus like many believers back then. 

If I can pray the more and worship with more passion, God will answer my prayers. As you can see, my motive of doing those things was already predicated on what God can do for me, rather than, doing those things because I am a son, called and chosen to give glory to my Father who has already given all things to me. 

RITUAL OR SPIRITUALITY?

The unfortunate thing however was, these powerful spiritual principles of approach back then were taught from a perspective of what I can gain or get in return for my benefit. Basically, this concept, or idea of spirituality, is a user-friendly philosophy of spirituality’. Everything is passionately pursuit if it is going to bring me a blessing, increase, promotion personally, and prosperity regardless of the alternative Father may have in store for me.

As you can see, the principles were right, but the motives were utterly wrong. Unfortunately, this is how many are still approaching the things of God, which is formula based. This is an approach of a slave, orphan spirit many are still expressing in their spiritual quest.  The Father does not desire to deal with any of his children from this fallen, humanist, religious value. Formula is a deep reflection of the ministry of the law still operating in our lives.

We are called to journey in the redeemed nature of our Spirit in a true relationship; a relationship that is born out of trust, faith, and complete obedience to the ways and life of the kingdom of God. 

The term relationship is one of the most abused and misunderstood words today, both in the body of Christ and generally in society. And this is a deliberate, strategic plan from the kingdom of darkness to corrupt, dilute, and desensitize the power and value the word, like many others within the hearts of men.

WHEN SPIRITUALITY MEANS SOMETHING ELSE

There’s no strategy as powerful as reducing or nullifying the meaning of something in the public domain until such a thing means something else from its original meaning of intent. This is one subtle way the enemy has tried desensitizing our spiritual sight and values, especially in this contemporary Age. The battle to reduce the meaning of words and discredit the power of God’s values and philosophy has been ever-increasing warfare in our time.

We live in a day where truth today is viewed as relative. People now have the audacity to challenge the truth and value behind every word spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ.  Keeping the true meaning and intention of words in it’s original, intended, context has become critical to the objective in maintaining the very essence and value of kingdom truth. 

The purpose and value of truth are reduced if the words used in conveying such truth is not clear or understood to be saying what it is intended for. Therefore, if I say I love you, and you don’t understand the original meaning and purpose of the word love, you will undoubtedly borrow the general meaning and value system society uses to measure the value of what I am saying to you. This is a grave matter that needs those in the apostolic ministry to clarify, at least this is one of the core objectives of those in the office of the authentic apostolic governmental ministry.  Words are no more words if they’ve lost their very essence, values, and core objectives.

RELATIONSHIP, A JOURNEY TO SPIRITUALITY

Therefore, to say that relationship is the very essence of our spiritual development is a serious statement when we capture the true essence of the word term relationship from divine meaning and perspective.  A relationship is the single thread that ties the mystery of the Godhead together in that order of perfect unity that makes them one in three. My point is, there’s more to understand in the very nature and life of God in relating to relationship than we can comprehend with our unregenerated frame of thought. 

The idea of a religious formula, rituals, and the inscription of the laws is easily understood from the carnal, humanist frame of thinking, but God does not live in such a realm. Even when he gave us the law, a type of formula, was for the objective of schooling us to understand certain fundamental principles required to build the necessary character values have been in living in slavery, abusive lifestyle for a long season. It’s more challenging to manage freedom if one has been in bondage for as long as one can remember.

You need to set specific guidelines and rules in place to protect those coming into this freedom. Freedom can soon have turned to self-bondage when the right values and understanding of lifestyle has not been taught. This is what the Lord did when he gave the children of Israel the commandment of approaching him and relating to one another in the camp.

The moment we move into the art of living according to his eternal design, the good, elementary principle of formula and laws no longer suffices or applies to us because we’ve transited into the lifestyle of the covenant through the blood of Jesus Christ, for this is the heart of our calling in kingdom order of relationship.

UNDERSTANDING SPIRITUALITY

Back to the point, I was trying to make about the idea of maturity. I have highlighted all this explanation to make this critical point that I hope you’ll now be able to appreciate. You cannot presume or jump into conclusion when it comes to spiritual development and maturity. Therefore, to assume the fact that you stand shoulder to shoulder with your teacher at school, or boss at the workplace suddenly makes you equal with them.

 Or better still, to assume the fact that you have the same matured body features and figures with your parents suddenly make you equally developed as your mother or Father is to express utter ignorance that can cost you dearly according to the word of God.

Maturity, in particular, spiritual maturity, is not merely defined by a person’s Age; if your definition of maturity or the respect of individuals is merely limited to their age gap or material acquisition and influence in society, then you’ve certainly proven that you lack the knowledge of basic life principles and the core values that drives human existence.

 I see this sense of disrespect within the body of Christ in the name of spirituality, especially on social media. If you have ‘knowledge’, such knowledge, regardless of how potent must function within an atmosphere of humility, honour, wisdom and respect. If your quest for knowledge exhibit pride and arrogance, you have nullified the law that makes truth work within your life, and therefore, you will be rejected from accessing divine things.

The template that gives you the code to access spiritual Revelation is a template of humility to those who are given the mission of spiritual apostolic stewardship. Because many have not been taught that spiritual things operate through the ministry of what could be likened to the ministry of certain folks within kingdom called gatekeepers, they assume they can just walk into the presence of the Father to ask for anything in terms of spiritual Revelation. 

THE PROTOCOL OF BIBLICAL SPIRITUALITY

Spiritual things work through divine protocol and these protocols work through specific underpinning value systems that interfaces between heaven and earth. If you lack the knowledge of the ways of the Spirit, you will be denied access to the ascended life of God, or the things of his kingdom, especially in a position or atmosphere where there’s a corporate gathering of the Saints.

There are people within the body of Christ who are designed over regions to be portals of revelatory access. These elders at spiritual gates of nations, cities and communities regulate and carefully administrate the apostolic construction, or prophetic engagements that generally flows into regions and atmospheres according to heaven’s divine season.

This is the idea behind the Church and the angle position within the seven nations in Asia minor according to the book of Revelation. Those churches are planted to regulate the spiritual, socioeconomic, and political destiny of their cities for Christ. They are the original governing leaders of their communities.

Re-examining the footing of our redemptive,

biblical status.

THE MEN OF EPHRAIM, WELL-EQUIPPED WITH BOWS

[AND ARROWS], TURNED [AND RAN] ON THE DAY OF BATTLE.

Psalm 78:9

by Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

Many seemingly mighty and elegant edifice, erected within the minds and around many Christians to behold will be collapsing at this end of days, particularly, from amongst what is presumptively defined as kingdom communities due to their weak, imbalanced spiritual philosophy and understanding.

 

We shall continue to discover as the new dawn of the days of the Lord falls upon us that that size, weight, and height do not necessarily amount to vision, strength, longevity, capacity, and productivity. The root or foundation we build will ultimately determine how far we go, and how long we shall remain, and this truth has now become a critical focal point as the sound of this present, spiritual advancement begins to lead us to a new frontier.

 

During one of our recent morning beyond devotional series, I was interested in probing why 22 thousand soldiers, armed for battle were disqualified, having failed the test of their fears and their lack of courage.

I have often used this scripture in Judges 7: 2-3 to reinforce my strong points while I am extrapolating on the subject of kingdom apostolic values and its principles, but it never really dawned on me to view this scripture from a redemptive perspective which is highly critical on the matters of advancing our kingdom mandate in this season.

During this last Easter week celebration, I took the time to do a series of teachings to highlight the importance and meaning of our salvation in Christ, and it’s advisable that we should often revisit this foundational truth even as we go on with the Lord.

 

The reality is, we cannot exhaust the ascended, revelatory, knowledge infused within the ministry of redemption. If creation is waiting in anticipation for its redemption, the logical reality will be that it’s those who have thoroughly understood the process and working of the various aspects of regeneration within the complex soul-life will be able to effectively and successfully carry out such a complicated task.

 

The important lesson from these 22 thousand, sandaled soldiers is that It’s so easy to make a declaration that we are taking back the land from the forces of darkness who have invaded our cities and space, it’s a different ballgame to be equipped ready for the warfare of reclaiming our lands.

 

The bottom line was 22 out of 33 thousand chosen warriors on the way to the battle were sent back home because something that ought to have been part of their default, the footing of readiness as the army of God was not there, hence, they were sent home. What could disqualify you and me in this season of preparedness and enrolment for the battle of the Lord?

 

I am sure you’ll agree with me that they’ve been times when we’ve assumed a sense of preparedness and readiness for an assignment only for a superior eye to access and scrutinize us, only to fish out of fear, weakness, ignorance, and unpreparedness.

How many times have we been told we are prepared and ready, particularly, from those who we assumed should know better than us; how many times we’ve presumed readiness in terms of receiving the necessary intelligence, training and capacity to engage the complexity of life like  becoming a wife, or ready to be a husband and a father?

What about raising children, going into business, taking that position of leadership either in ministry or in some corporate, secular position, only to realize we’ve been disqualified because something regarding our foundational footing and philosophy is not in order?

Redemption does just deal with our initial position of salvation but also addresses the dysfunctional realities within the core structure of our humanity. The ability to identify and accept the various dysfunctional, well-seated, Adamic has fallen believes and characters that have become part of our default operational system of thinking and behaving is a milestone in the journey of redemption.

 

“The LORD said to Gideon, “You have too many men with you for me to hand Midian over to you. Israel might brag and say, ‘We saved ourselves.’ Announce to the troops, ‘Whoever is scared or frightened should leave Mount Gilead and go back home.’ “So 22,000 men went back home, and 10,000 were left”. GOD’S WORD Translation. Judges 7: 2-3

 

One of the most unfortunate things we can accept as followers and members of the Christian faith is to allow the deception of the enemy to shut change, reduce, downplay, or even confuse the core meaning, purpose, and implications of our redemption. 90% of the challenges we are facing today are due to the lack of insightful knowledge of the implementation and impact of the ministry of redemption.

 

Moving from a presumptive notion to a more precise understanding will allow us to begin the adjustment process in our orientation to sound biblical concept of redemption. We cannot bring light to humanity if our spiritual ideology is out of synch due to a wrong and imbalance doctrinal knowledge.

 

The re-civilization of creation, according to the word of God, starts from the precise redemption of creation. Redemption [regeneration] is both the footing and the framework of the value worth of spiritual essence and maturity.

 

Once the foundation of what we define to be redemption is not in alignment with the divine architectural design principles of progressive spiritual development, whatever we seek to achieve or build, including our family values, or ministry objectives will never arrive at the divine intention of God.

 

A PRAYER OF LIBERATION AND DECLARATION

 

spiritual breakthrough .png

 

 

A PRAYER OF LIBERATION AND DECLARATION

OF ANY HIDDEN, SATANIC INTERFERENCE

OR IMPOSITION OVER OUR LIVES.

 

This is a day, a season of spiritual breakthrough for us. We are not leaving any stone on turned; we are not giving the enemy any chance within the space of our lives. We want to enter the realm of spiritual breakthrough without hindrance, and therefore, the Spirit of the Lord has led me to pen down this short prayer of confession. I’ve deliberately generalized the prayers; you can personalize it if you wish. This is a timely prayer of self-deliverance and breakthrough. There’s power in your confession and word declaration. Please, pray these words by faith and total trust in the word of God, and you will see the liberating power of the Holy Spirit manifest in your life.

Father in the name of your Son Jesus Christ, we, your people, today declare that we are united with you through the eternal blood of your Son who died on the cross to redeem us from the curse of the law. Because of the new life we have through the virtue of our covenant as joint heirs with Christ, we declare that we’ve been free from every form of bondage and Satanic imposition. We renounce every known and unknown allegiance with the spirit of disobedience. We break the bondage of ignorance, wrong affiliation, and demonic presence within our lives and space.

We are sons of obedience; bearers of the eternal light of Christ, and therefore, we refuse every form of Darkness or Satanic, New Age projections over our life, family, ministry, or community. Your words say, for my people, perish for the lack of your knowledge. Father, perhaps, we have been living in ignorance through certain wrong affiliations, decisions and relationships that may have become open doors for the enemy to gain access into our lives and space.

Today, we ask for your forgiveness, and we confess every wrong action, decision, and connection we have that is contrary to your intention for us; we submit to your leadership and authority. We shut the doors we’ve ignorantly open for the wrong spirit to torment and hinder us from the life of liberty you’ve given to us. We bind our soul to the love of Christ; we yield our thoughts and imagination to the will of Christ.

We accept the good plans of the Father for us; we eat of the fruit of the tree of life that produces righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. We receive the love and mercy of God for us. We are partakers of the good life in Christ Jesus. Our confession is that of faith, hope, and love for Christ and his kingdom. We, as your sons and daughters proclaim the liberty of the gospel of Christ that sets free from every Satanic, occultic and demonic influence.

We rise against the spirit of fear, depression, oppression, insecurity, perversion, manipulation, intimidation, control and abuse. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, we are free from the lies and deception of the enemy. For he whom the Son sets free is truly free indeed. I declared that I am free from the spirit of religion, wrong ancestral connections, poverty, sickness and diseases.

Today, we renew the covenant of eternal union and oneness we share with Christ. We confess that we are delivered and liberated from every limitation, bondage, doubt, fear, intimidation, insecurity and lack. Father we declare, may your kingdom come into our live and space. May the authority of your kingdom dominion override every authority or dominion we have ignorantly allowed to influence our lives and space. In obedience, we submit to your love and wisdom.

We, therefore, declare and confess the enemy has no foot whole over any area of our life. We are secure in obedience, faith, and total trust in you. We are free from the influence of wrong words, interference, and negative, soulish people in our lives. We are no longer controlled nor prejudiced by the mistakes, misdeeds, and the wrong decisions of our childhood or teenage years

Our minds, thoughts, and imagination today are freed, renewed, transformed and delivered through the spoken words of life. Yes, we are people birth through the incorruptible word of life and not of death; we are free from the curse of the law of sin and death. We have the life of Christ reside in us, and therefore, we have the penetrating, illuminating light of God residing and transforming us from inside out.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, the name that is higher and stronger than all names and authority in the heavens, on earth and beneath, we declare we are stronger than any Satanic and demonic words sent to cripple us from advancing into the new beginning of the Father for us. We take our place in the ministry of divine governance; we proclaim today that we are seated with Christ in heavenly places, far above all powers, principalities, and wicked spirits. We break into a new day of glorious light, favor and abundance blessing. We are bless and not cursed. We are rich and not poor; we are well and not sick.

We proclaim, no weapon formed or fashioned against us will prosper. We condemn every tongue, words, thoughts, idea, imagination and intentions, designed to harm, frustrate or stop us from reaching our destination. We cannot be stopped because the Lord is our strength, shield and defense. We go forth in the name and authority of our Lord Jesus Christ. We reclaim our inheritance in the name of Jesus Christ. In faith, we take possession of what belongs to us and our family, ministry and community. We declare that greater is he who is in us than he who is in the world. We go forth in the spirit of breakthrough to God’s ordained plan for us in this season and beyond….In Jesus name… Amen.
