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.

WHY JEZEBEL ATTACKS THE PROPHETIC. Part 5

principle of spiritual warfare

Principle of spiritual warfare and kingdom authority over the high places

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

Continuation…

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.

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.

UNMASKING JEZEBEL’S ARCHITECTURE OVER THE CHURCH AND THE NATIONS. PART 3

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.

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.

BEING SPIRITUALLY CARNAL. PART 2

BEING SPIRITUALLY CARNAL. CONCLUSION.

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

A considerable amount of Church community has managed to raise men and women who are more popular than the very Christ they claim to be representing. We today have church folks who believe more of what the preacher says in excitement than what is biblically correct.

The image of the man of sin is now seating in the temple, demanding worship and praise from the people of God. Many of our church folks have been bewitched by falsehood; truth has fallen to the ground, and no one seems to care.

Today, the act of carnality has become more fun and trendy to many, including church leaders, who by default ought to be the very exemplary standard-value of spiritual representation. Hardly do we see the concept of a church community gathering today that is not driven by some form activities that merely seek to exalt men.

We have raised a generation of Christians who are uncomfortable with a message that probes the heart and demands a change of character lifestyle. Our gospel messages and initiatives are focus around getting the people motivated for as long as we do not require them to change or sacrifice for the things of the Spirit. The pressure of material blessings, increase Church numbers,, and financial success has led many so-called church leaders to the house of wicked people to get demonic power to increase or maintain their status.

The voice of sensuality is growing more powerful than the sound of the spirit that seeks to please the Father, and we all need to corporately address this perverted spirit before we lose the next generation to the soulish, demonic lifestyle.

The world of the soul-life is a well-organized universe that requires individuals who have successfully graduated from the University of identifying each component and operations of the Spirit of truth, particularly, in the area of the principle of human redemption with the capacity to engage and expose the complex nature and operations of the unregenerate soul.

It does take a person who has lived and operated in the conscious, carnal character and a degree of the sound spiritual state of life to assist us to make sense of what it means to be carnally spiritual, and this is what we find I found in Paul and David.

What do I mean by this? David understood a profound character mechanism of the ministry of the (principle) laws of God in the conversion of the human soul.

Now, that takes a certain degree of relationship with the values of God’s word to be shown such level of profound truth. It is true that man, including those of us who have claimed to have experienced salvation to front a sense of spirituality that is derived from the soul realm because we’ve not been exposed to a certain depth of truth in our work with God.

The soul of man can virtually mimic, or even perform certain acts of spiritual activity, including what we may term as miracles, especially when it’s exposed and accustomed to the knowledge and operational system of the spirit, and there’s no doubt that the soul is very familiar with the peripheral environmental activity of the spirit. In the ascended operatives dimensions of the spiritual life, no part of the unregenerate soul faculty is allowed to function without their submission to the divine order of the spirit.

The function of the soul faculties alongside the governing authority of spirit-man is the divine pattern from the beginning. However, the fall has brought a sharp division that has continued to prevent a man from operating in his restored, ascended spiritual lifestyle. It must be clear that our spirituality and its operatives cannot be complete without the functional mechanism of the entire soul faculties.

The priority of heaven in this season is not just for us to understand the functional division of these two realms but to find the divine pathway of restoring them so that Man can once again function in that synchronized position of his restored life. Every autonomous faculty of man, particularly in the soul realm must be regulated and reunited under the governing, leadership system of the kingdom of God’s Holy Spirit.

Many of the spiritual realities and kingdom initiatives we are trying to achieve through an idealistic pursuit like the ministry of the oneness of the Body of Christ may not be quickly achieved due to our obscurity of this truth.

The unity of the Body of Christ and the corporate function of the ascended gifts will only become a true reality when we’ve successfully unseat the soul from the leadership position of the Church and general behavioral human lifestyle.

Unfortunately, the understanding of this highly, technical, operational mechanisms of the unregenerate soul-life is still a mystery to several believers, including many of the so-called spiritual leaders who have allowed the enemy to seduce and subdue their spiritual faculty into this sensual, demonic type of leadership.

Being able to function in what may be termed or seen as spiritual is perhaps one of the deadliest deceptions today especially within the Body of Christ, and we are warned to be wary of such manifestation when we see them in operation.

I have to some degree experienced what I am sharing through this note. Therefore, it is not some theoretical or some third-hand information.

it might be commendable to practice a form of spirituality that is based on some mental process information we’ve gathered, or have been exposed to due to the privilege of proximity and association with those who are knowledgable in spiritual matters.

But certainly not recommended nor commendable when such knowledge has not been duly processed and refined within the crucible of heaven’s designed process.

When ministry does not flow from a pure, devotional state of an ongoing relationship with the Father, it will ultimately produce fruits sourced from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which will manifest itself in pride which will lead destruction. It is so easy to build our dependence on what we know mentally, and present such mental knowledge to people as a first-hand spiritual experienced; this is called spiritual deception.

When we mention the term carnality, we are quick to think of a particular sin which is true to some extent, but the very nature of carnality as I have earlier described is a lifestyle that operates through sensual knowledge depend on the soul-faculty for what it sees, belief, choose, and decide, and many unfortunately operate their concept of spirituality from the point of view.

Therefore, carnality is to allow the position and influence of men, including that of so-called men God and spiritual leaders to override the mind of Christ and his standard of truth in our lives.

Carnality which is the soul-life is to be more afraid of men than the one who called us and send us to represent him.

Carnality is to lose your voice when heaven expect you to speak in defense of its values and standard. Carnality is when you and I seek to judge things, including people through their material or physical disposition.

Carnality is when the title of our so-called ministry r gifts becomes more important than the very life-fruit of him who called us and sent us to represent him.

Carnality is to eat and be Continually sustained by the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

There are two kinds of wisdom in the scripture just as they are two types of knowledge, one sourced from the tree of life while the other emanates from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

The scripture informs us that knowledge will increase in the last day, and we are seeing the fruition of this biblical prophecy coming to pass before our very eyes; an awareness that contradicts the principle of God and the respect for each other is increasing at all levels.

One of the characteristics of the last days is a total shift from the depending on the wisdom and knowledge of God to depending on the philosophy and ideology of man.

Human wisdom is one of the most significant challenges of today’s church, and the reason is clear, the wisdom or knowledge of God sound and looks foolish to man.

Sensuality is mixed with the knowledge, Eastern philosophy is becoming more prevalent and accepted among the western culture.

These forms of thinking that derive its source of information and inspiration from the soulish, sensual thinking is rewriting the template of how humans see and process morality and spirituality.

Of a truth, this is the age of knowledge as it has been prophetically declared according to prophet Daniel, and we are seeing the power of knowledge giving rise to many things not just in the general society but within the Church, which is contradicting every form of sound, biblical values of spirituality.

Knowledge is a product of the Spirit. However, we are now witnessing the accelerated, advanced development of another type of knowledge which the fallen man is very much familiar with, gaining precedence over the wisdom that comes from the tree of life.

This knowledge that flows from the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil has almost taken over the entire spiritual culture and worship system of the Church.

What is generally define as spirituality today are mostly sourced from the fruit of this tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and unfortunately, very few are keenly aware of this important deceptive and seductive activity taking place before their very face.

Today’s definition of spirituality is a learned art, mimic by what the soul as glean from those who many sees and deem to be successful. When we see and judge success merely by the obvious, it means that we subject to demonic control, manipulation, and witchcraft.

Being spiritually carnal is a term I have coined out to give voice and perspective to one of the most challenging topics in the contemporary Christian faith and human development. Particularly, in an era where carnality is now wearing the image of what men define and termed as spiritual.

The increased influence materialism and visualization has continued to Rob the church of the true sense of spirituality. When we base reality on what can be touched and seen, am afraid, we cannot go on with the Lord to that place of spiritual maturity.

Please note this point, being carnal does not necessarily prevent us from being aware of specific information either natural or spiritual.

We can be very aware or exposed to profound spiritual knowledge and still be highly sensual in our values and desire because information on its own does not have the transforming power of change. What we do with what we know is where the power of truth lies.

Here is a profound statement that gives voice to what I am trying to convey. Truth is not just about what we know or do with what we believe. The truth is about who we are becoming by what we believe in thought and through experience.

Lucifer is one of the most spiritually intelligent beings, yet, totally sold out to a sensual lifestyle, expressed in rebellion to the set standard of the Father. Some of his deadliest weapons at his disposal today are the ability to manipulate the knowledge and truth he was exposed to while he was the cherubim that cover the glory of God, and his the single reason the ecclesia must study and understand the doctrine of truth.

What defines true, biblical spirituality is not just about the degree of knowledge we have acquired or have been exposed to which have eventually become part of our residual, intellectual property.

But a continual relationship with the Father that keeps such knowledge or information alive in the place of unbroken, daily relationship.

I firmly believe that this was the principle and value the Father was instilling within the mindset of his children when he introduced the principle of manna in the wilderness.

Living out of the proceeding word is a powerful spiritual discipline that keeps us away from the deception of soulish, self-dependence attitude.

Learning to depend on the Lord for our daily [provision of sustenance] bread either for our emotional, psychological, material, or spiritual need is the most beautiful thing, and the most important spiritual principle we can ever attain.

Total dependency on Christ is the highest level of faith attainment in the spiritual journey. This has however proven to be one of man’s most challenging spiritual quest due to the advanced operational nature of the unregenerate soul faculties in man.

It is easy to depend on your own will, desire, or emotion regarding a need or decision that than to trust and wait for the Father’s verdict. Human needs, particularly, emotional or material always expose human carnality.

The children of Israel proved this point time and lever gain. Whenever they met a situation of need, they would run back to their default position of reasoning which is usually soulish and not spiritual. exposed.

In fact, at a point in their journey due to the delay of Moses on the mountain with the Father, they decided to choose another means that will lead them to the Promised Land rather than waiting for Moses, the leader God choose for them.

Further still, you will see them praise God whenever things work for their favor. Their understanding of spirituality means that things should always work out for their favor, then they will give praise and glory to God.

This lifestyle is, however, a profound manifestation of pure carnal tendency which is what we see being practiced in today’s context of Christianity.

The soul faculties are designed in a manner that they can both receive and [release] give knowledge in whatever form or format such knowledge or information is required.

In other words, when a person gets to be exposed or grows in a particular environment that offers the privilege to know certain arts, by default, such a person is able to duplicate or replicate the art in a different environment.

This is a law; what we learn can be replicated with or without our personal interest. This same goes for the concept of language.

When a child is born a different environment to his or her mother’s tongue, the child naturally picks up the lingual of such environment of birth. Knowledge is a learned art beyond the orthodox four walls of a classroom.

General knowledge is usually imparted through contacts and the influence we come under. Knowledge is what we are exposed to particularly through cultural philosophies.

Religion and even spirituality is a learned art that can be further developed into a personal experience depending on what caught our attention and what happens when our attention is caught.

This is one of the reasons why we are commissioned to go preach the good news to the world, and then make disciples of all nations. So, how would the people hear without anyone being sent?

When we consider the various aspects that make the communication of the truth or the gospel of Christ to the world, we see a progressive pattern that carries a systematic, continuous form of engagement and development until individuals arrive at their point of deciding that they need to have a relationship with the Lord.

The arriving point of deciding to have a relationship with Christ is never an instantaneous thing as many have assumed and this one of the end I am trying to raise as we examine this principle before us.

Many unfortunately have remained in the awareness point of what the scripture revealed about truth and spirituality, and in fact, have to build things and ministry around this awareness knowledge that is yet to be translated into a relevant relationship with Christ and his kingdom.

In an Age where another form of spirituality that does not involve pure relationship that flows from the heart of total devotion to the Father is fast gaining popularity across the world, we need to reexamine what defines the art of true, biblically sound spirituality so, don’t fall into the trap of this New Age spirit.

The rise of the New Age ideology of spirituality has continued to give precedence to this false, ancient lie that promotes that ideology that one can be spiritual without necessarily adhering to the value standard of God’s oracle.

The New Age spirituality promotes any form of religion that allows a man to be whatever he decides to be for as long as he or she feels right about it.

This is undoubtedly a false religious belief that must be challenged with the most advanced, biblical, prophetic insight and wisdom.

I do believe there’s a synergistic connection between sound biblical spirituality and human development. There’s no way we can accurately arrive at a perfect development without the restored inflow of biblical spirituality.

While the fallen man has continued to enhance the various aspects of his unregenerate soul faculties in terms of his exposure to foreign knowledge in the realms mental, emotional, and intellectual aptitude. He, however, remain estranged to the divine, unified, perfected life of his being in Christ.

Until the soul and his entire faculties surrender to the divine authority of the awakened spiritman, he will never enter the day of unified, perfected rest.

This is the day the Lord is calling us back to the realm of total harmonization of our entry back to its first state in the Father.

The division man experienced in the garden between his faculties must first be identified and restored before the advanced reformation and restoration of the various part of the body of Christ, and his ascended gifts can become a true unified, corporate church that executes the bedding of the Father seamlessly without friction.

This is, however, not going to be easy as many have assumed. we will have to first return to correct the assumption we have nursed and built regarding the ministry of salvation and redemption.

The lack of a well-balanced, knowledge of the way of the Lord has led us to the point of presuming the ways and arts of the Spirit. unfortunately, this false reality has become the very template of the operation of many in terms of dealing with life issues.

Our ignorance of the divine precepts of the kingdom of God has led us to create a false reality of a spirituality we today call Christianity, and this has to be of the major hinders to the precise development and transformation of the total man and his society.

I do not mean to be cynical with this title but to rather help to paint a picture of the dilemma of today’s spiritual dysfunctional state.

This is a subject that has fascinated me for many years as a follower of Christ who had struggled in many occasion to understand myself and the meaning of spirituality, and why I fail in many cases from living out the standard showed to me by my Lord.

An honest follower of the Lord must have at some point arrived at the reality of asking some of these critical, challenging questions especially around their weakness and failure to enter the realm of rest and upward development in the art of biblical spirituality.

Frustration, challenges, and resistance are synonymous to any honest seeker of the way, the truth, and life of Christ standard for lifestyle.

In my years of pastoral ministry service, I’ve come to this conclusion that many do genuinely desire to walk with God, but their inability to understand the origin and nature of their weakness and struggle in terms of gaining mastery over their carnal behavior is a major setback.

The practice of spirituality either by biblical values or on some other foreign ideological means requires the involvement of the entire soul faculties.

Therefore, who or what controls the soul realm of soul carries the upper hand in influencing the decision we make regardless of the direction or intention of such a person’s spirituality. Spirituality cannot be divorced from the harmonization of the entire human faculties.

It is essential we state that spirituality is the harmonization of the entire human faculties bringing glory to the Father. The spirit, soul, and body of man must be in agreement when the act of spirituality is being practiced.

Devotion cannot be completed until there’s a valid agreement between what the spirit desires to how the soul process and response to the passion of the spirit.

After all, both the passion and longing of the spirit can only be revealed through the faculties of the soul which are the very seat of human will, intellect, and emotion. And once the soul faculties agree on a desire that reaches her either through the imagination or thought realm, the chemistry of action goes into effect; action follows suit.

What eventually determine sound spirituality must be based on discipline, agreed action of the soul-faculty. It is highly possible to live and practice what many terms as spirituality within a divided, dysfunctional belief system, and in fact, this is the present concept of how many today practice their Christianity, or else, we will not have had so much of Christian activity with very little or no result. I would like us to examine this concept as we search to biblical answer in answering this long, ancient challenge to the Church. We need to deal with every form of carnal tendencies that will hinder us from enjoying the full life of the Spirit.

We need to address the desire and passion that seeks to mix spiritual truth with carnal activities; this is the day of spiritual purity so we may adequately represent the advancement of the kingdom of God to our world and generation.

MISSIONS AND THE CHURCH-18

 

Exposing spiritual pride

By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola

The bride of Christ is maturing in all dimensions of her faculties. The Spirit of Christ is now being allowed into those realms and positions he had been earlier refused access, and this is highly commendable.

However, the level of continual arrogance and pride manifest through some so-called, privileged access to some apostolic, ascended truth or revelation about the Father and his prophetic, kingdom realities by some brethren amongst us is a thing of great concern that should be addressed even though we’ve been talking about this for years now.

This is a day of light; this penetrating light is shining from a more brighter position of truth and wisdom that speaks to the issues of spiritual pride within us and in the body of Christ across communities.

No one can be close in his or her natural, human work with the Father than the privilege position Lucifer once enjoyed at the presence of the Father until iniquity was found in him.

Doing the things that prevents (lawlessness) iniquity to gain access into our hearts is one of the highest spiritual values and discipline we can attain in our relationship and various ministries.

In my work with God I’ve learned to discover that there’s just a fine line between truth and error; between light and darkness. It’s so easy to miss the primary things of the Spirit while we focus and fixative on secondary matters.

It’s so easy to lose focus and direction while trying to carry out what we believe is the heart of our assignment. Ministry and relationship are two unique, different things that we cannot afford the mistake of separating them or allowing one to overshadow the other.

One of the warnings the Lord echoed to the hearing of Cain was that sin lays at his doorsteps because of his wrong attitude towards his brother, and if he refused to gain mastery over it, it shall enter in and destroy him, and that was what eventually happened.

Ministry and our relationship with divine things are birth through a deep, close work with the Spirit of Christ as we saw manifest in the garden when Adam enjoyed a regular visitation of the Father in a time frame the scripture calls the ‘cool’ of the day.

This work of the Spirit which is both reformative and transformative by nature produces mobility to walk toward the direction of the formation of the Body ministry in a manner that is revealed through one’s testimony of the in-depth work of the cross of Christ.

The deeper we work in the ascended life of Christ produced by the cross, the close and more precise we can see the inner work of Christ in the lives of our brethren who may not be recognized or accepted by the blind multitudes.

Not being able to see or identify with the inner scar of the sacrificial work of the cross in the life of traveler of light with his unperishable bag of kingdom treasure that wax not old, is a clear reflection of such a person’s spiritual blindness and deficiency of apostolic life.

The truth is, What will eventually unite the various parts of the body of Christ on that mountain of confluence will certainly not be the degree of our revelation, or how we’ve been able to authenticate and articulate such revelation. What will begin to unify the broken, fragmented Body of Christ is going to be our ability to manifest before others, the fragrance of the sentence of our spiritual death at each season or junction of our call to migrate to a new spiritual position of life in Christ.

Many have romanced the loadable ministry of the unity of the body but have indeed invested very little or nothing in the divine call to die to their loftiness and sense of spiritual pride and ministry exclusivity.

It is highly essential and required that we are able to clearly articulate the ascended revelation of Christ and his kingdom as part of the reclaiming of our identity and culture as members and followers of the new nation in Christ.

However, our articulation of this identity must align with the in-depth formation of Christ in every sector of our human existence.

The reformation of our humanity is the only channel by which humans both saved, and nonsaved alike can see and appreciate the fruit of Christ and his kingdom lifestyle through us.

Revelation is for your personal reform in the journey while the participation of such revelation is your testimony of the new man you’ve become in Christ which then gives you the courage and boldness, but not in pride to express your authority of revelation to represent Christ to others.

If you keep saying what you’ve not genuinely become through the grace of spiritual process in redemption, you’re not better than a glorified, 21st century Pharisee.

Some I felt we need to consider or reconsider carefully. Pls, share this note to benefit others. Thank you.
