Rules of Engagement
We fight from victory.
Our battle against Satan is not for victory; Jesus has already won the victory. Christians are already the victors when they come to Christ. We are fighting from the position of victors in Christ conquering enemy territory, regaining what was lost at Eden through Adam. We are reclaiming our blessings and ground through the victory we have received even the new Spirit we have received from Christ Jesus. We have to stand firm in the fact of the finished work of Christ and total victory we have. Thus we overcome by the blood of the lamb and by the word of our testimony. Satan knows our position, his goal is to deceive us, trying to convince us we must still attain victory, rather then advance forward in our victory through Christ. Jesus Christ has guaranteed our redemption, He will complete our salvation, and the Holy Spirit is the down payment.
Therefore, we are conquerors taking territory, not warriors fighting for victory. The war is already over, the enemy is defeated Satan has lost. His goal is to take away our victory, through deception. We need to remind Satan he is defeated, and his only power over our lives is the power we give him if we walk in the flesh.
Jesus beheld Satan falling like lighting (Luke 10:18). Our job is to take his territory from him, advancing the Kingdom of God. Satan’s end is already declared in and seen in scripture. John taken into the future, saw the day when Satan was cast into the Lake of Fire, for the rest of eternity.
Satan operates from the position of defeat, he wants us to think otherwise. He knows his time is limited, he knows were his eternity is.
Satan is limited, and when he is allowed to attack, its for our growth. We need to keep this in mind when we suffer; God takes our sufferings and causes us to grow.
The devil is trying to do everything to keep people away from the presence of GOD. The veil is torn, the access to glory is now open and the enemy wants to do everything possible to keep the human race from getting into the presence of GOD and receiving great power and might. Let us take every effort to increase in prayer and communion with the Almighty GOD and press into the glory through prayer in Christ Jesus.
PLANS TO PROSPER
Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
It's vital we need to get established on the basic premise and truth that GOD is for us and not against us. All other schools of thought contrary to this truth. should be cast away.
GOD IS FOR US. HE is looking for ways to help us and bring us to our full potential.
Then you might ask why is your life so tough and miserable. It's because of ignorance; ignorance of the governing principles of the earth realm. Just as everything in the world works on certain laws and principles so does GOD. There are governing laws and principles set in motion to regulate the whole universe just like there are seasons, weather, birth, death, seed, time and harvest.
We have to come out of ignorance in to spiritual truths and grab the opportunities to advance into greater levels of calling. Every opportunity to advance will contain a test of character. I could see times where I was not ready and this is why it seemed that things were delayed. I now realize that it was not GOD delaying them, but my own actions. This was not punishment, as it kept me safe by not promoting me before my time.
