I have been seeking the Lord concerning the greatest needs of the church God’s people today. What should I be praying about, as well as, what should I be teaching? I sense the Lord saying that the churches, the sons, and daughters of God, are under thehighest level of attack ever from the wicked one.
1John 5:19, “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness.”[The whole world] Aren’t you glad to be out of the world system and in the safe hands of the Master? We are definitely set apart from the world and the control and power of the wicked one, but there seems to be no wall or fence that keeps him in his place. So how do we, the children of God, stand tall as Christians while under constant attack from him? I notice the Christian families from the pastors right on down seem to be in the midst of the battle. I am very concerned about most of our young people sitting in the church from the cradle through high school. They walk out as though they have never heard the Word preached for all those years. It is as though they listened to nothing of value, because, to them, they received nothing of value. I understand as low a 4% of college students return back to Church.They seem to have been blinders, or deaf. Most of them are lacking the power of the Holy Spirit which they need tosubstance them in this upside world.
Prov18:14 “The spirit of a man will sustain his, infirmity.” That means his spirit will keep him in anything he goes through. Could it be they are getting plenty of church, but little understanding of the Spirit and power of God in their lives? The Spirit and power of God need to be deeply rooted in all of us. Your spirit must be full of the Spirit of God to sustain you they need to know the Holy Spirit, and that the power of God is here on the earth for them now, today? He can and will lead, guide, and empower and comfort our lives? They seem to have little or no concept of defending themselves from this wicked one.
2Cor11:14-15[The hidden worrier] “for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also are transformed as the ministers of righteousness”, I am reminded of what Jesus said to Peter Lu22:31 “And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you that he may sift you as wheat.” Sifting simply means, he wants to beat you and your family down to nothing. We, the children of God need to get to a place where we learn how to use our God-given authority.
Jesus wants you to rise and fight for your family and loved ones. He said I give you power over all the power of the enemy.
Remember friends what Paul said, our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Our fight is against Satan’s forces. If you have never bumped into the devil, it could be because you are traveling in the same direction. Notice, The apostle Paul is not even exempt from the fight.
1Thes2:18 Paul said,” Wherefore we would have come unto you even I Paul, once and again, but Satan hindered us.” My friend, don’t think for a minute that he won’t come against you and yours like he did Paul. He is still a hindrance.
James4:7 James said, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”. [Being submitted is the key.]
The Lord Jesus beat the devil as a man by standing against him for forty days in the wilderness, and He beat him on the cross when He broke the power of sin and death for us. The Lord Jesus wants this angel of light, exposed to you as nothing but a liar, and a deceiver. Jesus wants to put fight into you so you will rise and fight for your family and loved ones.
In the last few months, I have heard from the devil concerning people that I am trying to help. I learned something from this experience that needs to be shared with you. The first one was over a woman who contacted me through my radio program. She was suffering fromAlcoholism. She was full of fear and needed to know Jesus. This was a real battle. I invited her to the place where we meet on Tuesdaynights where we have a good ministry team for healing, deliverance, and counseling. This woman was giving me a hard time. She told me not to bother her anymore. She said, “I don’t trust you, and I never want to hear from you again, all of this was being done through e-mail, I said ok.
The Lord then showed me a picture of a hand squeezing her forehead. I knew that it was the hand of the devil; so I made one last effort to contact her by e-mail. I told her what I saw and if she wanted to be free to go to Revive church in Stuart Fl, on Sunday morning at 10:00and at the end of the service they always give an altar call, and they can help you. I had only been there a couple of times myself. Then I heard these words from the devil “THIS IS A WAR.” I ask the Lord why the devil would go to war with me over one little alcoholic woman? The Lord said he hates her , and with him, it is all about numbers he hates losing one number to me. Monday morning I got an e-mail saying “Dr. Allen, I listen to you and your son Landon Saturday on your radio program, and I know now that you were only trying to help me. I also went to that Church Sunday, and I got set free! I got saved! I got healed, and I am doing great!” I finally met her. She wanted to make me a linkedln contact with her, and I notice she had been a school teacher a police officer and had worked in the medical field. Please help someone fight the good fight, help get someone free. Trust the Lord Jesus, and keep fighting for others.
