Occupy Til I Come

     The candle of the Spirit of God in us as believers, is the power from which we draw upon to lay claim to what Jesus Christ won on the cross. His victory over the devil and his demons, fallen angels, or minions has been finished. Why then, do we still see evil in this present world? The battle has been won over them, but could it be that we, His occupied forces, are not laying claim to His victory, and are shrinking back? Could it be that we don't quite understand how to use the weapons of our warfare, or even that we don't believe what has really occurred?
     The outlandish statement that God makes in His Word tells us that He has given us the keys of the Kingdom, that "whatever will be bound on earth will be bound it heaven, and whatever will be loosed on earth will be loosed in heaven." (Matt. 16:19) To handle this kind of responsibility takes a mature Christian.  If they aren't mature, and they try and use this power, it's like giving a child an AK-47 without any training or understanding about the power he holds.
     But, there comes a time when we, as His representatives on earth, need to step out, in the Spirit through prayer, and boldly declare against the powers and principalities of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places, that Jesus has won the victory over them, fully expecting them to be rendered helpless when perilous and threatening situations present themselves on this earth. We can pray against any assignments that the enemy has given, and cancel them in Jesus' Name and by the power of His shed blood. His victory is the only thing the devil really understands, and will respond to it in retreat.
    Praying in this way requires wisdom and courage, which God provides for us all if we ask and listen. When we don't know what to pray, the Spirit prays through us, and He will. One thing we must be sure of, when we do, however, is that God hears and will respond, and that the devil was, and will be defeated.

"In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world," Jesus reminds us. (John 16:33) "This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith."- (I John 5:4)

He did it; believe it and act on it!!! Let's take the hill, fellow comrades!!! In His Name and for His glory only!!!!
