WHY JEZEBEL ATTACKS THE PROPHETIC

As we have noticed, this is a spirit that is not afraid to charge against the gift, ministry, and office of the prophet. Arguably, the office of the prophet is one of the highest governmental position of spiritual authority, representing the activities of God’s affairs within the church and around the realms of societal affairs across earth.

We are in a day of the awakening of some dark, ancient, governmental spiritual activities within the realms of men that need urgent, but bold, courageous and strategic intervention.  Let me highlight at this point that all that is unfolding from the powers of darkness, assaulting the very nature and identity of both the Church and the nations, specifically, today from the house of Ahab with his wife, Jezebel is a direct response or confrontation to the prophetic awakening and engagement of God’s Saints across the earth.

Mount Carmel, a type of the gathering of the nation under the false leadership of Jezebel will be the very place and point where the power of God will finally judge this evil spirit of Jezebel and the male prophets who have yielded their authority and ministry under her illegitimate authority due to her financial economic influence.  Jehu reflects the personification character the Lord will employ to finally destroy this character or entity that has sought to capture, incarcerate, and change the desired order of God for man and the society but it will take a courageous spirit of Elijah to stand instead of running from her.

When Jezebel had that prophet, Elijah had commanded the execution of her false prophets on Mount Carmel, she sent words to the prophet of God that by this time tomorrow, your head will be given to the vulture to feed. This was a direct confrontation to intimidate and neutralize the authority and the position [influence] of the prophet of God in the land.

The Spirit of Elijah.

The Spirit of Elijah is shifting things back to the Father’s ordained program for the earth. The Spirit of the two witnesses is being released to prepare the ecclesia for the great showdown. The Spirit of Exodus is characterized through the anointed grace of Moses while the Spirit of Elijah is the Spirit that breaks the hold of identity bondage from the illegitimate power of Jezebel; this is also known as the Spirit of fire.

The Lord is restoring his wind and fire in this third day. We are told that before the dreadful day of the Lord, the Lord will send Elijah who will turn the hearts of the Father’s back to their sons, and the hearts of sons back to their Father. This prophetic activity in the earth is activating the closer proximity and visibility of their kingdom of God.

The coming or emerging reality of God’s presence and glory to the earth is shaking the foundations, ideologies, beliefs, philosophy and the dominant political cultures that have ruled and reign in the minds of men for centuries. The day of the Lord is emerging with great noise and the rolling away of everything that can be shaken.

Prophetic Perspective

God said to Jeremiah, this day, I have made you a prophet over nations…the jurisdictional matron authority of a prophet in most cases, especially, a seasoned, well-matured prophet reaches far beyond his or her place of geographical location.

A prophet based on one end of the continent can speak authoritatively, of course, according to the directives, guidance and wisdom of the Spirit into another city or nation. This is often carried according to the prophetic seasons and initiatives of the Father around realms and continents. We saw Samuel, Jeremiah, and many of whom we call minor prophets, operated in the apostolic, governmental grace over nations.  The seven churches in the book of Revelation were all positioned prophetic across Asia minor to spiritually influence the realms as we shall later examine regarding the church of Thyatira.

The governmental authority of prophets always creates a deep panic in the camp of the enemy, and therefore, the assigned, principalities, powers, and wicked spirits, over such realms gets agitated and therefore, tries to shut down or frustrate the influence of the prophetic voice within such regions.

The Spirit and operation of Jezebel are primarily assigned as a corrupt, illegitimate, governmental spirit assigned to attack and frighten the prophets, and their prophetic position and authority over cities and nations.  The enemy is quite aware that if they can stop or frustrate the operational initiatives and assignment of the prophet over any community, city or region, such a region is already captured, it’s only a matter of time.

Jezebel and the fight for the Soul of America

Societies, cities, nations, and regions carry or wear certain unique character or personality traits that heaven identifies, relates to, and engage in judgement accordingly to such persons. It is critically important that the Saints, particularly, those called and grace with the spirit of intercession to identify the image and personality each city or nation wear, so that when they are praying, they can address such personality.

Every city or nation in the Bible can be related to in particular name character. Some cities, however, exhibit more than one character just as ordinary humans can have more than one name or character expression. Most times in the scriptures, the Lord addresses, cities by their predominant character personality. In other words, the name of Israel can be exhibiting the character of Sodom, therefore, when the Lord is addressing Israel in a context of a certain issue, he will rather address Israel in the appropriate name that captures the spirit he is addressing amongst is people.

Every nation has got a soul that allows certain inflow or outflows of values, beliefs, and philosophy. This is one of the reasons we are called to war for the soul of cities and nation. To effectively address the predominant spirit over an atmosphere, you need to identify the spiritual personality, such city or nation is operating, and in most cases, not always, such spirit can be found within the character framework of the founding fathers of such society.

This character trait that defines the image-soul of the nation is then passed down the ages through those thoroughly vetted and initiated into key leadership positions of such society. This is one of the reasons why we need to understand that there’s another election behind the so-called democratic election citizens carry out.

Our votes are important, but not as important as the vote of those who are following the agenda and narrative of what has been covenanted by the dedication of what such city or nation should maintain.  An alliance is formed on behalf of cities and nations through certain foreknowledge agreements that are sealed by blood, and this is where compromise is reached regarding how such cities or nations should express themselves in all manners of policies and values.

As I have said, my main objective in is article is to unmask the subtle, but a powerful operational spirit of Jezebel within the current global affairs which is unfortunately now shaping the narrative of most political debates and discussions as the battle for the position of power in the new world order plays out.

The reality is, the sociocultural ideologies of societies, including many, who today claimed to be Christ-followers unfortunately has almost been eroded by this wicked spirit of Jezebel to the degree that if what you think and say don’t fit into the narrative of political correctness, then you’re labelled as the enemy of God or enemy of the state.

This powerful Satanic system has almost capture, crippled, and redefine the identity, culture, and authority given by God to men to be responsible in presenting themselves, families and communities at large before the Lord as kingdom priests.  As we shall later study, we will highlight the main purpose of the spirit of Jezebel which is to mainly to emasculate, frustrate, and neutralize the identity and authority of manhood within society, and that is the current agenda across most countries in the name of democracy but in particular, in Europe and America.

Jezebel, the institutionalized power of governance

We are today seeing one of the greatest, satanic assault against the church and the lives of ordinary Americans. There are various ancient, demonic stronghold with being awaken today with the objective to disrupt, capture, and change the very prophetic identity of the people of America and the rest of the world as the Jezebel spirit leads this campaign.

This assault should be worrisome to all awakened sons of God, particularly, those with an advanced intercessory, leadership spirits, and elders within the order of the fivefold ministry. America is a strategic nation that plays a role in shaping the cultural and socioeconomic status of many continents. Whatever is birth, established and accepted within the context of the America society, it’s only a matter of times before such in adopted. The influence of America, globally, is a two-way stream; it all depends on the school of thought or agenda that is sought to be promoted from the political leadership class.

Every political party is an ideology that seeks to promote an ideological belief. these beliefs are systematically integrated into the political process that shapes and forms the policies that inform society. Therefore, we need to adjust our understanding and narratives about economic struggle. Behind the agenda of fighting for equality and prosperity, there are invisible key players that seek to manipulate the outcome of things. [Rev 18:} speaks about global trade and whom the world trades with.

Trade is not just about goods and services; the heart of global trade is about the influence of lives, territories and mineral resource, and no doubt America is a key player in this global trade as we can with the current trade war between the two parties biggest economy-China and America.

The nation of America has never been so divisive on almost everything, and there’s a reason for this. The election of Donald Trump as the president of America was a game-changer. His appointment was a statement that will shake the very foundation of certain narrative that seeks to utter and change the prophetic program of God not only for America but for the world at large.

The war between the nation of America and China is far beyond the idea of goods and service; the is about the control of power, and it’s important we have precise prophetic insight into what is going on. We have always taken the stand that God has a definite, prophetic program for each nation. No nation exists by their own effort or plan; God has set nations and regions where they are for his prophetic mandate. Just like Egypt, Mali empire, Rome, and Greece to mention a few, were a powerful trade route in the early century, United Kingdom, America, China and Russia are today, some of the most powerful economies, and this is translated to global influence or power.

America is currently being invaded by the spirit of Jezebel, and it’s critical for us to study what’s going on as we reexamine the word of God in finding the prophetic weapon to paralyze this spirit. What makes this study important is the fact that Jezebel operate under a false, illegitimate authority. Therefore, it is highly important we understand what leadership and spiritual authority mean, and how it’s designed to function, so we are not captured by false spirit in the name of leadership influence.

At this point, I’ll like to highlight some concerns I believe needs to be addressed in the context of the revelation of the spirit of Jezebel in relating to what is today known as political correctness, which is my strongest point has almost crippled the leadership authority ordained to guide and protect families and individuals from the assault of the forces of darkness.

One of the things that have become almost the trademark of the current political landscape of the European society and of cause, the larger American political narrative is the subjects on the accuracy of truth definition and other concepts around moral values, issues relating to biblical position of sociocultural and institutional development. These important fabrics of strong, family and institutional structures are almost no longer accepted, nor is room given to teach and debate on these subjects due to what is now known as gender sensitivity.

So, we are increasingly seeing certain important subject that speaks to the issue of moral correctness, faith, identity, the natural definition and characteristics of the male species, and the concept of womanhood from a sound, biblical perspective are today seen as unaccepted In the promotion of the idea of progressive beliefs.

The push for humanist value has almost eroded the right order of human existence and this is being promoted by the ideology of the new world order global narrative. Therefore, the idea of gender-sensitive has become a weapon the powers of darkness are today using to short down the voice of truth that needs to be had regarding the current distortion of the identity and structure of human values within society.

Today, many within the Church are almost crippled to speak out regarding certain laws and institutional practices that are contrary to their faith and believe due to the fear of powerful political backlash against their organization, this is totally unaccepted. Issues that deals with order, leadership and correctness regarding homes, family, marriage, manhood, and womanhood are all today left untouched.

Our children are becoming more and more confused and dysfunctional without the right leadership identity and authority to bring nurturing, correction, direction, and affirmation to them because the authority of father has almost been stripped from them through the Satanic influence of the spirit of Jezebel controlling the state powers.

The promotion of feminist power is destroying the very structure and order of family and societal values, and this is presenting feeding into how many now view the principle of God’s word. Many are now interpreting the word of God with the humanist and feminist lens view and this totally unaccepted.

The perversion of sexuality and the right order of identity, which speaks into who we are as the male man or a female, are almost now known existence. The moment you begin to deal with subject that points to certain wrong values connected to the female entity, suddenly it becomes an issue of the lack of gender insensitivity.

Many spiritual leaders are increasingly become frustrated due to the fact that they are not able to exercise the spiritual authority God has given to them in dealing with issues as they should be because they are afraid of not being politically correct. The idea of political correctness or gender equality is an idea that was systematically introduced into the political space through a Satanic agenda to create a false narrative of inequality on issue of gender so that the feminist agenda can use such a platform to promote the various program they desire to push to society and the various institutions of society.

The truth is, this has been the plan of Satanic agenda in promoting Jezebel influence as the economic system, empowered by state and global institutions to silence the voice of truth and to discredit and neutralize the authority of faith and God’s word in their so-called New Age, progressive society.

Revelation 18:1-3

After this, I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendour. 2With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ a She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. 3 For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

The spirit of Jezebel which today has taken the form of political and economic authority and has infiltrated almost every arm of government institutions and sociocultural view.

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.

UNCOVERING THE ARCHITECTURE OF JEZEBEL OVER THE CHURCH AND THE NATIONS

ARCHITECT OF THE FUTURE SERIES.

UNMASKING JEZEBEL’S

ARCHITECTURE OVER THE NATIONS

by Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

 Revelation 2: 18

“To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:

These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. 19 I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.

20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. 22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. 23 I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.

INTRODUCTION

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.

Permit me to start this note by defining the meaning of a thief because it gives us a footing and a perspective into what we shall be examining at the cause of this message. A thief is defined as a person who steals another person’s property, especially by stealth [cautious and surreptitious] and without using force or threat of violence.

This scriptural declaration by our Lord Jesus Christ himself and the definition of a thief give a clear, in-depth, characteristics of the subtle nature of the battle we’ve found ourselves as the Body of Christ. This description further defines for us how we should engage the reality of the days we’re in with a deep sense of cautiousness, sobriety, and prophetic discernment.

We are back to the very same point and method the enemy used in invading the Garden in Genesis without the voice or visibility of the man placed in charge to challenge the invasion of his space and territory.

As the Garden was invaded and violated by Lucifer, the Church and the nations today are being invaded by the same enemy who is now using the rebellious spirit and persona of the woman called Jezebel. 

The increase of deception and seduction to lure the nations and the Saints to follow the charming voice of the woman who sits upon many waters, according to the book of Revelation has become increasely visible in many homes, government institutions and Churches across the globe. The degree of compromise in today’s Church as seen in the society is a testimony to the failure of sound leadership.

The central focus of this teaching, we are about to examine is the concept of a failed leadership. Leadership is about being present and visible! Jezebel thrives where sound, biblical spiritual leadership has been compromised as we saw regarding King Ahab of Israel.

The powerful spirits of deception, delusion, and corruption begins to operate in a society, family, or Church when fathers and leaders abdicate their position and responsibility.  It is my strong believe that behind the woes of today’s civilization is the reality of leadership failure. We shall later consider these points as the Lord will grant us direction.    

There’s no doubt the nature of the battle the Church of the Lord is currently faced with, characterize the spirit of Jezebel, and we are going to examine this spirit as we allow the Lord to open our eyes of wisdom and spiritual understanding.  We shall look at what Jezebel is currently stealing, killing and destroying both the Body of Christ and within society.

There’s no doubt we are living in one of the most intense seasons of spiritual warfare seen the beginning of human history, and this battle will continue to increase even as the Church and the nations enter the scope of the visibility of the manifestation of the kingdom of God.

The closer we step towards the declaration of the appearance of Christ’s government on earth, the more intense our battles, birth pang, and of course, our tribulation.

The sociocultural war of ideology and identity dysfunctionality we are seeing today, even in the Church, reveals without a doubt the narrative objective the enemy desire to see. However, this battle is far from you a cultural war; it is a spiritual battle that is geared toward a total annihilation of human dignity, morality, and obedience toward the standard of God and his kingdom.

Only those aware of this diabolic attack and have been well built and equipped with the sevenfold spirit of Christ will stand their ground in facing this deadly assault. Ignorance of the ways of the Lord and his dealings both within human affairs and the Church of the living God is already costing many in the Body of Christ in a great deal, but I hope that through some points that will be highlighted through this note will help you see things in divine perspective.  

Perspective is everything when it comes to understanding and responding to the demands and challenges of our day. Both reading and studying the word of God in the light of revelation and spiritual understanding in such a manner that gives clarity and illumination is a high virtue required today in dealing with many of the seemingly complex questions being asked, and I hope by the end of this resource note, with the series of videos webinars already published on this topic should add to the  insights and keys of the kingdom to effectively bring answers, solution, and direction.

The current assault to change God’s moral code, order, values, and standard of existence is a deliberate attack on the wisdom of God that has intensified in a manner that is almost eroding the position of spiritual authority and leadership within the community of God’s people, and this is where we need to walk in reclaiming our position of biblical truth and its foundation.

The assault of Satanic powers through the spirit of Jezebel is one major battle today’s church and society is faced with, and unfortunately, many, including some of our spiritual leaders are not adequately equipped nor prepared to face. This is a battle that has already claimed many lives in the Body of Christ.

My joy however is, the Lord does not wait for everyone to be ready before he begins to equip his Saints to rise and fight the enemy already causing casualties across the nations.

We are now being giving spiritual tools, for divine upgrade; additional kingdom keys to unlock truths that will allow us to strategically address certain challenges that may seem as complex, or even mysterious to us at this end of days. Getting the keys and access the realms in the Father are two different things.

It seems to me while ready Mathews 16:20 that the first key to access within the bunch of keys is the revelation of Christ.  And Jesus Christ said to his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ.

Let’s look at some scripture to give us perspective.

And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” 20 Then He admonished the disciples not to tell anyone that He was the Christ. Mathews 16:18-20

Galatians 3:

1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?

Revelation 2:18-23

18 “To the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. 19 I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.

20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. 22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. 23 I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.

Daniels 7:25-26

And the ten horns are ten kings who will rise from this kingdom. After them another king, different from the earlier ones, will rise and subdue three kings. 25 He will speak out against the Most High and oppress the saints of the Most High, intending to change the set times and laws, and the saints will be given into his hand for a time, and times, and half a time. 26 But the court will convene, and his dominion will be taken away and completely destroyed forever.…

Engaging the reality of the season

We now live in days where the prevailing culture of Babylon and the ancient, established high places has almost swallowed the moral compass and spiritual identity of many who claimed to be followers of Christ and members of his kingdom.

The dominant culture of the New Age spirits and the awakened occultic, eastern demonic worship order has almost succeeded in changing the names, language, diet, and apparels of many, particularly, in the Western world concept of Christianity as we’re now seeing in Africa and the rest of the world.

As this Satanic agenda that seeks to change times and set laws, continue to harass the Saints and the nations, [ set time and laws, meaning, moral, ethical standards of human existence and biblically sound spiritual values] many, unfortunately, have given into this false agenda and lies because they were never grounded in the spiritual philosophy of a sound, apostolic biblical paradigm.

Millions of Christians today are now being assimilated into the very way of life we’ve been empowered and commissioned [sent] to change; the people we are called to redeem, disciple, and deliver for the Lord have almost managed to capture our weak spiritual position and ideology of ‘Christianity’. They are pursuing the agenda to change the times and the laws of God before our very eyes while we hide in caves and holes as we see during the reign of Ahab and Jezebel.

The spirit that captured the kings of the earth have managed to bewitch and seduce society, they’ve been charmed and bewitched; the spell of Jezebel is today written all over our desires, actions, conducts, our pattern of thinking, desires, spiritual, and emotional preferences, unfortunately.

To be continued.

THE NEUTRALITY OF GOD’S INTERVENTION

INTERPRETING WITH ADVANCED SIGHT REGARDING GOD’S INTERVENTION OVER THE PRESENT BATTLE OVER THE NATION OF AMERICA, SOUTH AFRICA, AND THE REST OF THE NATIONS.

Several parallels, or do I say paradox is taking place within the nations, particularly, in America, South Africa, Nigeria, as well as the UK but it will take a genuinely advanced, prophetic ( spirit) sight to bring clear prophetic, perspectives and interpretations to these things to the extent that we are not overrun by our views or well ingrained religious and nationalistic or globalist prejudice in our analysis.

13 Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”

14 “Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord e have for his servant?”

Joshua 5:13-14

Only those who have explicit, in-depth knowledge of biblical definition and spiritual perspective regarding  present, global crisis  are able to clearly see things, and correctly separate truth from their own human (views) interpretation and expectations.

When Joshua saw this man standing, he immediately placed a presumption perspective and expectation on the stranger without allowing the man with a draw sword to introduce himself, and this is the unfortunate stand or view many Christians have chosening in  approaching  the many complex issues of life. Sometimes, the place or point where we stand regarding the battle of life can preoccupy and overwhelm our thoughts to the degree that they negatively impact or blur our judgement. 
While standing before a type of a Jericho’s resistance challenge, we should never allow our prophetic perspective of approach to be compromised. Keeping a perspective of balance of judgement in decision without being pushed into a comer of concluding on issues we are get to get divine judgement could cost us. 

We must be cautious that we don’t continue to promote the narrative of God is for us, and he is against them. The perspective of Which side God is regarding certain issues must require well matured, biblical and spiritual insight. Our battle must always be on. The point of principle and value and never on the personality. The rules of engagement regarding the battles of life, especially in this season demands we excercise the finest of redemptive approach to any situation as kingdom regents.  Joshua was taught a good listen that Jehovah is not a politician; God is neither a Republican nor is he a Democrat.

The God of America, as he is likewise the God of the rest of the world is not on the side of our religious or political biases.

He maintains his position of neutrality in his redemption purpose of all human.

It is us that must align our belief, motive, and agendas to his define standard.

For us to precisely see and appreciate the deliverance methodology of the Father for our nation and generation, we have come to the place of circumcision.

The Lord of Host wants to remove the reproach of our nations, including that of the United States of America, but it will not be done on some charismatic, believe or manipulation of intervention.

Hearts must be brought to God in sincere repentance from our blind spots, religious prejudice, our ingrained superior complex attitudes.

Pride must come down, and humility must be exalted and allow to flow like a river starting from the heart of the head of state to the ordinary Jones on the street.

Everyone needs to be circumcised by heart as we approach the battle of Jericho.

This battle will only be won through the power of obedience and the presence of God.

The priest must now take their place as the undress themselves from the spirit of pride and arrogance that kept them blind. It’s time to be redressed to bear the government of the nation upon their shoulders again.

The governing authority that will bring healing to the nation of America, South Africa and the rest of the world will flow from shoulders that have perfected the sacred call of carrying the (ARK) Presence of God.

May the Lord continue to grant us his grace and wisdom to both see and share in his truth with the finest of redemptive spirit, and ascended revelation in this season.

Iron must continue to sharpen iron for us to develop and maintain clearer, biblical, prophetic insight and wisdom in our interpretation!

IN SEARCH OF SOUL SALVATION NOTE 3

The principle of soul redemption.

BY ISAIAH-PHILLIPS AKINTOLA

2 Timothy 3:5

Having a form of godliness but denying its power.

Have nothing to do with such people.

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.
