I become so annoyed when I hear lazy Christians make statements such as: “Well child I leave it to God”, “Well it don’t make no sense fighting’ this is God’s battle” “Anyhow this will work for my good no matter what they do”.
I want to make abundantly clear that in spite of the above phrases you do have a role to play in the victory that has been assigned to you. The reality is your ordained victory will be solely based on your co-operation as it relates to your role in that particular matter. This phrase that is frequently used, “What God has for me is for me” could falsely give one the impression that no matter what happens they will get whatever it is that God has for them. This is a lie from the pit of hell calculated by the enemy to make you the lazy procrastinating believer, believe that there is no fight involved. This way of thinking my friend makes way for Satan and his host to devour whatever it is that God has for you.
What I am trying to say here is, Satan has the ability and right to not only re-route your destiny but to also misplace your end results that God has already declared as victorious, if you continue to passively sit back and do absolutely nothing. Nevertheless, his success will always require your full co-operation. So in essence you unknowingly become a co-conspirator to your own demise.
Scripture says the following: “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning” Isaiah 46:9-10.
The above scripture is clearly stating that God and God alone have already declared all endings for the believers. However this does not indicate or even suggest that the Christian must sit back and relax as if the end that has been declared by God will be met without resistance. Satan will not aid or assist you in retrieving God’s best for you, as a reminder just in case you forgot, he is your ENEMY!
In fact scripture speak specifically to this illusive notion. “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way” Matthew 13:25.
So as you would have read, your laziness, passiveness, “so call waiting on God” or the mind set, that you have no role to play in this ON GOING SPIRITUAL WAR AS IT RELATES TO YOUR DESTINY AND DECLARED END IS ABSOLUTE NON-SENSE!
Many of you reading this right now have yet to receive the promises, the manifestation of the prophecies spoken over your life or any form of change in your life simply because while you were doing nothing (sleeping), Satan and his host were sowing well calculated seeds to ensure God’s declared end will not come to pass in your life but will produce Satan’s desired end for you.
The bottom line my friend, you are literally in a fight, unfortunately for you that fight is spiritual, meaning you can not see the devices of your enemy. Nevertheless, do not let this fool you into thinking there is no fight going on. There are so many misinformed and spiritually uneducated Christians who refuse to study and read the word of God for themselves. So as a result of that they become a casualty of war. I have literally met Christians that even when I would have given evidence of what the bible says about a particular matter, they would still turn around and say to me, "Well Pastor say so and so and I will go with that". Well my response to that foolish statement will always be that Pastor Jim Jones, David Koresh and many other misguided Pastors have led many to their death and quite possibly to an eternity in hell all because they refuse to read and study and compare what the word of God says with what their Pastors are saying.
At the end of the day we have been warned over and over again that our fight is not with people (flesh and blood) but our true fight is with demonic forces that are quite capable of manipulating Pastors, evangelist, Apostles and the like if they are open to them. Sometimes I sit in awe, when I observe leaders never encouraging their congregation to study the word. Instead their congregation is mentally saturated with emphasis on seed offering, first fruit offering, Faith offering, last fruit offering, middle fruit offering, cat offering, Billy goat offering and the list goes on. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WHEN WILL THE CHURCH OF GOD TEACH THE PEOPLE OF GOD HOW TO WAGE SPIRITUAL WARFARE AGAINST THEIR RELENTLESS ENEMY THAT WANTS TO DESTROY THEIR LIVES ON EARTH AND DRAG THEM TO A CHRISTLESS HELL? Have your Pastor or church taught you about the spiritual armor of God that you should be dressed in everyday particularly before you pray, Ephesians 6:11, 13? Are you aware that you are suffering so many losses as a Christian because you are not dress for battle even though you’re fasting and praying?
What about the Angelic host God has given charge over you according to Psalm 91:11-12? Are you aware that in order for the Angels to fight for you, you need to speak the word of God because it is the only thing that they respond to according to Psalm 103:20? Are you aware that there is a principality (Demonic prince that rules a region) ruling over every country, community and family that's fighting ministering Angels from releasing God's answers to your prayers and your breakthroughs and also fighting the will of God for your life (destiny) Daniel 10:12-14? Are you aware that you can determine who these ruling demonic princes are ruling over your Family, community and country by the many evils being observed in the land, Proverbs 28:2? Are you aware that the word of God is literally sharper than any two edge sword in the spirit realm, Hebrews 12:4? And your faith is a literal shield in the spirit realm designed to quench the fiery darts of the wicked, Ephesians 6:16. I could go on and on but my point is how does the emphasis on sowing see prepare you for war? Trust me I am not discounting sowing seed. Instead I am saying, if I am taught the protocols and armor of spiritual warfare then I can prevent my SEED from being devoured before it ever has a chance to harvest.
As a reminder, Hosea the prophet of God speaking as an oracle of God said, "My people (meaning the people of God) are perishing (being destroyed, lacking, always sick, always broke) because they are lacking knowledge" Hosea 4:6. So at the end of the day Pastor Jim Jones who led almost a thousand so called believers of Jesus Christ to their death by convincing them to drink Kool Aid mixed with cyanide did not kill those folks. Instead it was their lack of study of the word of God that made them puppets to their puppet masters. Again scripture is clear, “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD" Jeremiah 17:5.
There are many, if they could return from the grave, would tell you, “Put on the whole armor of God and declare the word of God against the enemies of your destiny and God’s declared end for every area of your life. I am going to kindly ask you right now to excuse me but I just have to say to you “GET UP OFF OF YOUR DUFF AND BEGIN SPEAKING CONSISTENTLY THE WORD OF GOD AGAINST THE DEVOURERS OF YOUR DESTINY IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! Whether you believe it or not there is an invisible army of darkness fighting your destiny and the destiny of your love ones every step of the way, unfortunately due to our ignorance we assist them with this.
Make no mistake the enemy is planting seeds against your destiny while you’re sleeping or while you've decided to take the passive approach and the evidence of what he has done will manifest itself in your future defeats and re-routed destiny. I beg you this morning begin fighting by learning how to fight and learning how to fight requires you studying your war manual which is your BIBLE!
FATHER WE CURSE EVERY SPIRIT THAT’S EATING AWAY AND POLLUTING OUR EXPECTED END AND RE-ROUTING OUR DESTINY IN THE MATCHLESS NAME OF YOUR SON JESUS CHRIST! WE COMMAND EVERY SPIRIT OF IGNORANCE TO BE REMOVED FROM EVERY BELIEVER IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. AMEN!
