My dear brothers and sisters in Iraq, peace and mercy be unto you from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who is, who was and who is to come, the Almighty God. I am trouble in my spirit every day to read news about your struggle with principalities and powers of darkness trying to wipe out Christianity in your country.
Let me remind you that this struggle with powers of darkness and their agents is not from God. Our Father in Heaven is not using these people to punish His children. This struggle is satanic and it must be fought with all spiritual weapons we Christians have at our disposal. Right now we have entered into another dimension of our existence as children of God.
Our enemy and his agents must be defeated and destroyed. But how?
We must have absolute trust and confidence in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, who is the Lord of Hosts. The commander of God’s army. He is the Lord strong and mighty and mighty in battle. Not only that, we must also have absolute confidence in the Word of God. This is the time we must all walk by the Spirit and not by sight. This is also the time the Word of God must become active and powerful in our mouths. The arms of the flesh does not profit any one, it is the Spirit of God that gives life (power) and this life or power is activated by the Word of God spoken out of our mouths.
This is not the time to be lukewarm. Nor is it the time to be afraid. The Spirit who is abiding with us is mighty to save us. When Haman wanted to destroy the children of Israel living in suza. Mordecai and Queen Esther entered into 3 days of prayer of agreement, fasting and praying for divine intervention. And God intervened. Our merciful Father is ready to intervene on our behalf. He is mighty to save us. The scripture says in Isaiah 54. That they shall surely gather against us but the same scripture says God has not sanctioned any such gathering. Our God also promised us that whoever gather against us shall fall, be defeated for our sake.
How do we actually cooperate with God to defeat these enemies of the Cross?
The Bible says we overcome Satan by the blood of Jesus and the word of our testimony. Never allow the Word of God to depart out of your mouth but you must confess the Word of God concerning protection from evil day and night.
We also must confess the power of the blood of Jesus day and night. If the children of Israel were delivered from wickedness and the danger of death by applying the blood of a lamb on their door posts. How much more must we apply the blood of Jesus Christ by faith over our life and our love ones.
There is power in the Name of Jesus Christ and His Blood.
When we plead the blood of Jesus. We are doing the same thing the children of Israel did in Egypt. We are applying the precious blood of Jesus over the door post of our lifes.
Please my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, Learn to pray day and night the following scriptures:
- Psalms 91, 121. 68:1-3,
- psalm 35.
- Isaiah 54,
- Isaiah 8:9-10
- Any other scripture you know that talks about God’s protection.
“For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act”. ISAIAH 28:21
“There is no one like the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who rides the heavens to help us, and in His Excellency on the clouds. The eternal God is our refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before us, and will say, ‘Destroy!’ Then we the children of God shall dwell in safety, the fountain of Jacob alone, in a land of grain and new wine; His heavens shall also drop dew. Happy are you, O children of the Most High! Who is like you, a people saved by the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord, the shield of your help and the sword of your majesty! Your enemies shall submit to you, and you shall tread down their high places.” In the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Deuteronomy 33:26-29
Thus saith the Lord; Because of the covenant I made with you, sealed with blood, I will free your prisoners from death in a waterless dungeon. Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles. Zechariah 9:11-12(NLT)
