Thought for the Day

It is easy for us to speak about the circumstances, instead of speaking about who God is and what He can do. If we, for example, speak failure we release a continued failure over our lives.  Instead, we need to speak that God loves us, and that He can, and wants to, change the situation.

Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 285

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 15:00

Scripture:

Ps. 144:1
… Blessed be the LORD my strength …

(Swedish version: “… Blessed be the Lord, my rock …”)

Comment:

From a perspective of spiritual warfare, let’s have a look at some meanings of the Lord being a rock.

God doesn’t change. He is only good, and He only does the right thing

Deut. 32:4
He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

From the truth that God is constantly good, we get stability and security in our lives, and it will be much easier to realize that God isn’t behind our problems. The enemy is.

God is our refuge and our protection

Ps. 18:2
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

When we realize what a strong protection we have, the enemy cannot scare us as much as as he has before.

We stand on a rock, not on a quagmire

Ps. 40:2
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

It is important that we walk on solid ground when making spiritual warfare, and in our entire walk with God.

When the church is built on the rock, it can handle the storms

Matt. 7:25
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

When Jesus is allowed to build the church, the attacks of the enemy cannot stop it.

There are two criteria for a prophetic message to be from God:

  1. The message will come true (Deut. 18: 21-22)
  2. The message will lead us in the right direction (Deut. 13:1-3)

Even a message that is not from God can come true, but what is crucial is the fruit that comes from the message.

The authority of the believer – part 6

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School,Uncategorized — kellporten @ 22:10

What is our position of authority?

In the last post, we said that those who receive Jesus get a position of authority at the right hand of the Father. We will look a little closer at that later, but first we will look at Jesus’ position of authority.

Jesus’ position of authority

Jesus is sitting right now at the right hand of the Father.

Eph. 1:20
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

The fact that Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the Father means that He has a position over the evil spiritual world.

Eph. 1:21
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Our position of authority

In Ephesians, in the second chapter, we can read about OUR position.

Eph. 2:6
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

We live physically on earth, but our position of authority is in Jesus Christ at the right hand of the Father. Therefore, we, just like Jesus, have a position of authority over the evil spiritual world.

Praise is a powerful spiritual weapon. When we sing praises to God, the enemy flees.

Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 284

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 15:00

Scripture:

Ps. 144:1
A Psalm of David. Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:

Comment:

The LORD is a man of war, and He wants to teach us to fight.

Exo. 15:3
The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

Jesus, our Lord, is the King of kings, the shepherd, the slaughtered lamb, the healer, the deliverer, and much more. But, He is also a man of war, which many believers tend to forget.

Let’s have a look at some Scriptures that show us that God does fight:

Deut. 20:4
For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.

Ps. 24:8
Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

Isa. 42:13
The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.

Jesus will return as a man of war.

Rev. 19:11
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth … make war.

The people of God need to get much more revelation about the spiritual war. God wants to teach us to fight in the right way against the enemy, i.e. the evil spiritual world (Eph. 6:12). He wants to teach us about the weapons we have been given, and how to use them.

2 Cor. 10:4
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds

There will be a time, and let’s hope it comes soon, when the people of God will fight willingly.

Ps. 110:3
Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power …

(Swedish version: “Your people will come willingly when you gather your army …”)

If we could fully realize the protection that praise and worship gives, we would not want to stop singing. Praise builds the bulwark of the soul. It also builds a protective wall around our family, our church and the place where we live.

God looks at the heart, even when we sing praise, while we may only be interested in how it sounds. True worship means singing to God while reaching for a pure heart.

Spiritual Warfare in the Book of Psalms – 283

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 15:00

Scripture:

Ps. 143:12
And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.

Comment:

… for I am thy servant

David served God and yet he suffered from attacks. We might think that being attacked is a sign of being out of God’s will. But, an attack many times can be proof that we are acting in the right way.

We must realize that serving God means we are going to be attacked. To serve God is not going to be a dance on roses, and we have not been promised it will be easy.

John 16:33
… In the world ye shall have tribulation …

Jesus didn’t promise the disciples a walk free from problems, but He encouraged them to be of good cheer anyhow. Let’s read on in John 16:33:

… but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Our service for God must not be based upon trying to avoid problems. It must be based on obedience to God in spite of the problems. Through obedience to His commands we become Jesus’ friends.

John 15:14
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

God wants to have 100% of you. He doesn’t want to share you, with worries, doubts or anything like that. This also applies when we sing praises to God. True worship is a way of loving God with all our heart, and we need to put aside the issues of life that we wrestle with.
