The reality of the unseen world

It is so unfortunate that the majority of folks will come to the reality of the unseen world only at the point of their death. Of course
at that point, it would be too late for them to recant or dismiss their original beliefs of this world and would have no other choice than to deal with what that world from that point forward dictates to them.

Over the years of studying, researching and teaching on spiritual warfare, I have ascertained that the common denominator that links the Believers of Jesus Christ with being defeated by the forces of darkness is the direct and in direct violation of the principle stated in the following scriptures; Ephesians 6:12, 2 Corinthians 4:18 and 2 Corinthians 10:4 and here is what those scriptures have to say respectively:

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”

The underlying tone in the above scriptures are all making reference to reality or a dimension that is not tangible or requires the use of our five senses. Thus, this is where the difficulty arises for those that dismiss the spirit world. Interestingly enough scripture clearly advises us that the natural man cannot understand the things of the Spirit of God. in fact, these things are considered foolishness to him. And as a result of this decision automatically blocks his ability to comprehend such things because they can only be spiritually discerned. This same scripture goes on to say, a spiritual person, can judge all situation. Simply because his judgments and assessments are based on things that are not visible, which he is fully aware of is the bases and origin of all things, 1 Corinthians 2:14-15.

I somehow have come to an understanding as to why one would not be able to comprehend or be quick to accept the reality of the unseen world. I can vividly recall as a young man growing up in the church. I would see member and visitors’ alike running around during the service in convulsions, throwing themselves on the floor, seemingly unable to control themselves, speaking an unintelligible language, etc. It was noted back then as it is in some cases today as being under the Spirit of God or “being in the spirit.” While I would readily agree that they were under a spirit, I’m not sure I would agree it was necessarily the spirit of God. The point that I am attempting to make is simply this. Many have polluted the understanding of the unseen world with physical displays such as what I have mentioned above. However, very little scriptural teachings have been made available to rightly educate the unlearned on what truly is spiritual and the principles and rules that the world is governed by.

We are given a glimpse of this world from the book of Daniel. In Daniel chapter 10, it is initially noted that Daniel was fasting for three weeks or twenty-one days. This is an excellent area to stick a pin in, simply because fasting is one of the protocols or principles of a person engaging in and with the unseen world. Scripture has repeatedly revealed that when the people of God face insurmountable challenges, a fast was necessary. The idea here was to commune, and request solutions from God, whom I might add is a spirit, according to John 4:24. Nevertheless, during this fasting period, Daniel revealed an experience that he had. During this encounter, Daniel said that he was approached by a certain man that was clothed in linen whose waist was girded with a gold sash.

Daniel went on to describe this person’s body as beryl, while his facial appearances like that of lightning and eyes as torches of fire. I am sure we can all conclude here that this could not have been a human being. The reality was, this person was a spirit being whom we know to be an Angel. Now, before we proceed further. We must cement into our understanding that this is a vision that Daniel is experiencing. Persons that can experience such an event are, in fact, observing with their spiritual eyes events from the spiritual world. Daniel could not observe these events with their natural sight. The Angel explained to Daniel that God heard his prayers from the first day of his fast. However, the Angel clearly said that he was delayed in executing God’s message to Daniel because the prince of the kingdom of Persia hindered him. Please note, this prince is not a human being. In fact, physical human strength cannot challenge the power of a spirit being. Additionally, these activities were taking place in the heavens and not on earth. As a reminder, the Angel of God was attempting to reach Daniel, who was located on earth.

This prince of the kingdom of Persia is known as a principality. A principality is a region or a territory in which a prince rules or governs. In other words, this demonic prince was the one responsible for all the wickedness and evil that was manufactured and distributed throughout the kingdom of Persia. Unfortunately, the angelic messenger that was sent to Daniel could not compete with this ruling prince (again these are all spiritual beings). The angel said, "Michael, one of the chief princes of God, came and assisted him by detaining the prince of Persia" so he could continue his mission to Daniel.

Daniel’s story is a perfect example of how vast in power the unseen world is, along with its hierarchy, rules, and principles that it is governed by. More importantly, it is this invisible world that is consistently determining what we experience in our natural world. This is why it is so vital that we understand that the Bible is the word of God. It is also a book of spiritual laws, rules, principles, and protocols of the spirit realm that dictates our natural realm. Therefore if we are ignorant as it relates to the things of the bible, then simultaneously, we are unaware of the existence, operations, and principles of the unseen world.

The bottom line is simply this. The Believers of Jesus Christ will continue to become casualties of spiritual warfare as long as they continue to subscribe to the physical blessings only. Such as car, houses, money, prosperity, teachings, etc. These things are the final product of what has occurred spiritually. If Christians continue in their ignorance of the spirit realm, this act will secure for them poverty, sickness, anti-progress, and the like as their portion in life.
The Apostle Paul repeatedly said in his teachings, “I would not have you ignorant” suggesting that even as a Christian there are many things that you do not know but need to know.

Could your dreams be revealing that blessing are on the way

Due to the  influx of emails that I have been receiving concerning dreams of things, places and people of the past, such as dreaming of your former school, your childhood home, a former job, former apartment etc. I was compel to shed more spiritual insight on dreams.

Such dreams are indicators that the spirits of setback and delay has been released against you in the realm of the spirit. However, the flip side to such dreams are even more interesting in that when one experiences such dreams it is a clear understanding and a heads up that a breakthrough, miracle,positive change etc. is pending for the dreamer.

If you are experiencing such dreams, you must begin waging war via prayer against the spirits of delay and setback that's working overtime to interrupt what God has set aside just for you. I have counsel with many folks who were frustrated with their Christian walk in that every time something was about to come through for them everything would just fall a part. I in turn would ask them, "Have you had dreams where you saw yourself wearing your former primary or high school uniforms or attending your former schools including college? What about dreams where you always find yourself at your parents home or grandparents home even though you don't live there any more? Some of the more evident signs would be dreams where you see yourself back in a relationship with your ex husband/wife or even former partners.

Well, 9 out of 10 times the answer would be yes! You see my friend, anything or anyone in a dream that is taking you back to areas of your life that you've either already accomplished or you're done with, symbolizes spiritual delay and setback, attempting to hijack the victim's spiritual blessings that is pending release for physical manifestation.

Scripture reminds us that there is a time and season for every purpose under the sun, Eccl. 3:1. Your spiritual blessings that have been assigned to your life before the foundation of the world according to Ephesians 1:3-4  and are released according to the law of Eccl 3:1. Satan, in his attempt to make sure you never connect with those appointed times and seasons, again, releases his spirits of delay and setback to hinder your progress and elevation.

This will explain why carbon copies always show up in your life in an effort to delay you from connecting with God's original for your life. This is normal behavior on the part of evil forces working against you; just when things are on the verge of turning in your favor. Carbon copies (the wrong people, places and things) are intended to delay you from what was designed to advance you, their job is to solely make sure the victim never, ever progress in life. In fact they will see to it that you never cross a certain point in your life. Meaning, you'll get so far but always have to start all over again.

Please, whoever you maybe reading this post right now, this is not an accident or by chance that God has inspired you to read this post. I strongly advise you to take a critical review of your dreams in search of the signs I have mentioned above and begin to wage war on these stealth spirits that secretly invade our lives via our ignorance of their presence.

I will say it again, scripture did not say the people of God are destroyed because of fornication, adultery, lying, cheating or whatever else we categorize as sin. Instead, it plainly said that it was as a result of a LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!

Begin frighting now, and I mean right now in prayer targeting the spirit of delay and setback with the word of God. Speak, Proverbs 6:30-31, Joel 2:25, Psalm 115:14 and many other scriptures and at the same time asking God to reroute you to your divine time, seasons and appointments all in an effort to collide with your appointed physical manifested spiritual blessings.

Miscellaneous dreams

Dreams of yourself Climbing a mountain or hill represents struggles and hardship. Dreaming of
yourself going up an elevator but the elevator all of a sudden stops; such a dream is indicating that the spirit of anti-progress has been let loose in your life and is fighting your advancement and promotion.

Dreaming of being push down a stair case or walking down a stair case is indicating demotion the dream will have the same meaning if you're traveling down an elevator.

If you have had dreams where you saw yourself walking backwards in a dream then the dream is revealing that a spirit of backwardness is attached to your life.

Dreaming of heavy weights being attached to your legs is indicating that someone is attempting to slow your progress or hinder your advancement.

Dreams where you are at your former residence especially your child hood home, represents the spirits of setback and delay in your life.

Dreams where you see yourself writing an exam but either you never finish the exam in the dream or you fail the exam, then the dream is revealing the spirits of defeat and failure is running rampant in your life and you must unseat these spirits with the fire of God!

Dreaming of cats especially black cats represents witches and monitoring spirits sent to monitor your life to plan future attacks against you. You must command spiritual blindness to all monitoring spirits sent to your life.

Dreams where you are cursing your spouse, these dreams are very manipulative, such dreams mean that you are in fact placing curse on yourself. As a reminder, marriage has made you and your wife one in the eyes of the Lord. So if you are cursing your wife in the dream you are indeed cursing yourself.. Rebuke this dream immediately!

Darkness in a dream represents ignorance and evil presence. If you dream that you are in a hospital but not as a patient then the dream is revealing that you are called to the healing ministry.

If you are having dreams where you saw your partner kissing someone else in the dream especially if the dream is repeating itself, then the dream is indicating betrayal, cheating, infidelity in the relationship.

If you are repeatedly having dreams about your partner being in bed with yourself and someone of the opposite sex or even same sex then the dream is revealing that either you or your partner has a spirit of perversion. Such a dream can also be indicating that uncertainty with either one or both persons in the relationship.

The color black in a dream would always represent something negative, such as ignorance, poverty. famine, sickness, disease etc.

Masquerading spirits in your dreams

For the record, Satan and his demons/evil spirits have the legal right to transform themselves into
different people and things. In fact they are permitted to do so via spiritual law. This is another spiritual law that one needs to take note of when attempting to make sense of their dreams.

Here is what scripture has to say about this spiritual law of transformation as it relates to Satan and his demonic agents,

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works", 2 Corinthians 11:13-15

With the above understanding in mind, you must pay special attention to your dreams when it comes to folks that you are familiar with in your dreams. The job of a masquerading spirit is to manipulate and deceive the dreamer while planting spiritual evil seeds in the life of the dreamer. Masquerading spirits will always attempt to secure the trust of the dreamer by pretending to be someone the dreamer is familiar with. This is common in the case of a dreamer dreaming about deceased love ones. Always keep at the fore front of your mind that a masquerading spirit will always be seeking the agreement of the dreamer or establishing evil covenants with the dreamer to bring about evil manifestations in the dreamer's life.

So, that person that you thought was your deceased Mom, Dad, brother/sister etc. in your dream were in fact masquerading spirits. Now, any interaction with those spirits that appear to be your deceased love ones will spell trouble for the dreamer. Scripture is clear when it said the following about the dead,

"For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun." Eccl. 9:5-6 also, “Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God" Leviticus 19:31 and Deut:18:11. Necromancers are folks that claim to speak to the dead.

Aside from this, masquerading spirits can disguise themselves as a close friends and make it appear as if your close friends are operating against you. Again, such dreams can be highly deceptive so in order to decipher if these are masquerading spirits, look for give away signs such as the person that appears to be your friend would barely show their face in the dream. in other words you'll be exposed to just a glimpses of their face.

Another sign, this person that appears to be your friend would be doing or saying something in the the dream that you know your friend would either not say or behave in such a way. Another sign, what appears to be your friend in the dream would either look taller, shorter, fatter than your friend is in reality. Another sign, this masquerading spirit dress code would be totally off from what you know your friend would wear in reality.

Trust me when I say to you that I have seen great friendships and relationships brought to an end simply because of a dream that the dreamer thought was the lord revealing the evil secrets of the dreamer's friend. It would only be when the dreamer and myself would go through the dream with a fine tooth comb that we were able to unfold the deception of the dream that caused the dreamer their relationship.
