Not Against Fresh and Blood 2

The battle cry is louder than ever before, the enemy is roaring like a lion (1Pet.5:8) and diversionary tactics is yielding higher dividend for the enemy like never before. The Church is busy with beavering  or politicking whilst the enemy advances his territory with every unimaginable tolerances and satanic agenda even in the charismatic and Pentecostal circle.

If there is any time in history that the Church needs to wake up, it is now! Beloved, note: the issue is not that Brother or Sister that fails to understand your point of view, it is not about people’s failure to recognize your administrative position or hierarchy, it is not about acceptance of your laudable idea or opinion, it is not about your person either! The enemy is behind the scene in almost every seemingly point of disagreement because “. . . .he has come to steal to kill and to destroy. . ” (Jn.10:10b)

Remember that the devil always has an agenda and since he is a spirit being and cannot be seen, he necessarily has to have an agent in other to carry out his plan on earth. Most of the people you tag as trouble or problem spots are actually agents of the devil. But remember, there are willing and unwilling agents and that implies you may have been an agent at one time or the other: Peter was! (Mt.16:23).

Today if you will hear his voice to Peter “. . . . .behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: ” (Luke 22:31), then you need to explode and tremble with a passionate response of “Oh Lord, lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil” (Mt.6:13)

Always remember, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Eph. 6:12). As you contend for the faith, make sure you are not beating the air! (1Cor.9:26)
