NOTE: This newer article is a compliment to my article entitled:"BE CAREFUL HOW YOU WAGE SPIRITUAL WARFARE!"http://pillarofenoch.blogspot.com/2016/04/be-careful-how-you-wage-spiritual_20.html. Before reading this article, I highly recommend reading the above article first.
DO YOU NEED PROTECTION OR HEALING FROM GOD? Are you engaged in Spiritual Warfare prayers and getting nowhere, except finding yourself more under siege by the Enemy than ever? Then it's time to seek a different approach! Early on the morning of July 15th, 2016, the Holy Spirit impressed upon me the following that I have been asked to share with all of you. So please prayerfully consider it, and learn to apply it, just as I am going to do:
STOP BEING A WITCH HUNTER, AND STRIVE TO BE A GOD SEEKER INSTEAD! Our Abba Father God Yahweh in Heaven does NOT want us to have to know the name of every demon, demonic curse, or person attacking us to be protected. Furthermore, He does NOT want us to have to figure out how to address every kind of magic, spirit, demon or demonic curse, vex or hex being thrown our way by those dabbling in the Black Arts. He wants us to repent of our sins, follow His Will and not our own, and lead a holy life dedicated to His service. After we are doing this, we will receive the cover and protection and healing that we need when we ask Him to provide it!
Salvation may be based only on our belief in Yahshua or Jesus as the Messiah, but if we want protection, blessings and rewards, we have to keep our eyes and our spiritual focus on Christ (See Hebrews 12:1-3)! This means listening to God through His Spirit to do His Will, and working to do God's Will as the Holy Spirit leads us. The Holy Spirit will lead us to do just as Yahshua's model prayer and warnings in Matthew 6:8-15 tells us. As it says there, we need to forgive others their sins, and come to the foot of the Cross in humble repentance for any and every sin we may have committed daily, and plead the BLOOD and the NAME of Yahshua over ourselves, over our loved ones and over our food and our homes DAILY.
It's the BLOOD and the NAME of Yahshua or Jesus that we need to call on EVERY SINGLE DAY, and ten or twenty times a day if necessary to see healing, provision and growth! Furthermore, UNLESS YOU EAT YAHSHUA'S BODY (HIS WORD) AND DRINK HIS BLOOD (HIS SPIRIT), YOU HAVE NO LIFE IN YOU! (See John 6:53-58) This means that WE SHOULD PARTAKE OF THE LORD'S SUPPER DAILY if we are sick, and reflect on His Word and call on His Spirit when we do to help us to rid our lives of everything that displeases Him, or distracts us from doing His Will. OTHERWISE, WE ARE EATING AND DRINKING GOD'S JUDGMENT UPON OURSELVES! (See 1 Corinthians 11:27-32)
If you are NOT seeing good results after trying this approach for a few weeks, then it's time to examine your life and judge your conduct, especially in the areas of vanity, selfishness, and greed. Ask God in prayer to reveal the secret sins you need to deal with, and the areas in your life that you need to work on in order to gain holiness, and to become sanctified. Ask Yahshua and His Spirit to give you WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING, and to show you the right way that you should go to avoid His displeasure. SEEK TO FOLLOW GOD IN EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE, whether at work, or in family and leisure time, and by doing so, you will set yourself apart as holy unto God (See Hebrews 12:9-15).
Don't get LOST spending time addressing the Devil and his demons rather than following, praising and worshiping God! God does NOT want us to try and bind Satan or His works, or to be preoccupied with the workings or schemes of the Evil One that comes as hexes, vexes and curses! Our Father God in Heaven wants us to be preoccupied with Him, His Son Yahshua, and His Kingdom. Therefore, ANYTHING THAT TAKES US AWAY FROM LOVING AND SERVING GOD SHOULD BE ELIMINATED FROM OUR LIVES WHENEVER POSSIBLE!
Besides that, we need to learn our place in the hierarchy of Heaven, and not overstep our bounds. We are not God, and we are not supposed to try and bind the Evil One, but to ask God to bind Him, for only God, His Son and His Spirit have the true authority to do that! The bottom line for believers under siege is to seek holiness by seeking God's protection, setting yourself apart for God's service, and doing God's Will. Remember to seek His Kingdom and His righteousness FIRST, and ALL the things that you need (like healing, protection, and provision) will be given to you! (See Matthew 6:25-33)
ALSO, DO NOT LOVE THE WORLD, OR ANYTHING IN THE WORLD! Loving and being friends with the world means chasing after the things it makes us desire that draw us away from God (See 1 John 2:15-17). Pursuing things such as wealth, popularity, fame, power, love, vanity, pride, lust, pleasure, and owning land and property are all antagonistic to what God primarily wishes us to pursue, which is to love God and draw near to Him first so that we can serve the poor and needy, and care for the needs of those around us
Of course, we can't draw near to God unless He prepares us to do so by giving us His indwelling Spirit, and we can't be born again spiritually by God's Spirit unless we truly love and wish to follow Christ. Therefore, in order to get our spiritual priorities in order, we all need to be born again (See John 3:1-8; 1 Peter 1:22-26)! Only then will we truly learn how to reject what the world wants us to pursue, and to focus on God's desire for us, which is to learn to give love to others God's way before worrying about what we need, or how we want to be loved!
When we love and pursue the world's desires, we often have to forsake God and His calling in our lives. To fulfill God's calling, we require spiritual fruits that the world despises, rejects and ignores, such as brotherly love, compassion, humility, kindness, self-sacrifice, selflessness, self-control, generosity and forgiveness, and spiritual gifts that the wold does not understand, such as the gift of prophecy, the gift of healing, and speaking in tongues (See 1 Corinthians 12:1-13; Galatians 5:16-25).
A tip off that you're serving yourself and not God is when everything you do is focused on obtaining your own joy, security, wealth and happiness, and it has little or nothing to do with giving joy or happiness to others. As a result of being selfish and preoccupied with one's own needs, not praying regularly, and being unfamiliar with God's Word, many believers lose God's favor and blessing, and open themselves up to demonic attack and oppression.
Finally, the Lord has impressed upon me that His children need to PRAY WITHOUT CEASING (See 1 Thessalonians 5:14-23)! TO BE PROTECTED FROM DEMONIC ATTACK, WE MUST PRAY FOR PROTECTION! This means praying for ourselves and our loved ones, and interceding for our brothers and sisters in Christ when they are under spiritual attack or oppression, and when they ask for help. For further guidance in how to engage in spiritual warfare, please read the article I've linked to below:
Together with Christ , we can overcome the Devil and all his works with prayer and striving for holiness. In an effort to help believers succeed as intercessors, I wrote this article, and the article I've linked to above, along with several other articles that are linked to at the bottom of that article. Read all of these articles to find out how to pray, and how to conduct yourself when engaging in spiritual warfare.
