THE WISDOM OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE

TAKING THE BATTLE HIGHER

For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority. Colossians 2:9-10

Shabbat shalom dearly beloved!

As we prepare to enter the Feast of Trumpets, New Moon celebration of the Seventh Biblical Month (Eve of 4th to eve of 5th of September), YHVH has put in my heart an urgent message about Spiritual Warfare!

Again YHVH spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall not do any laborious work, but you shall present an offering by fire to YHVH.’ Leviticus 23:23-24

This is a definite Shofar Wake up Call of Teshuva-Repentance!

You must learn to exercise Spiritual Authority or you will not make it!

Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time. Revelation 12:12

I noticed that most people have their spiritual discernment very dulled and they do not realize that most of the “circumstances” are actually attacks from the enemy!

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10

WisdomNo carnal weapons will help us in a spiritual battle, we must fight in the Spirit and from the Spirit receive instruction and WISDOM to fight and be victorious!

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Messiah. 2 Corinthians 10:4 NKJV

We must cast down all vain imaginations (high things that exalt themselves against the knowledge of Yah!)! Those are imaginations that discard the promise and the Power of Yah (God) and cause us to “figure out” solutions to our problems without exercising spiritual authority! Those vain imaginations convince us that we are “under” the circumstances when it is exactly the opposite! So number one -is take authority over your own “fear thoughts!” Bring your thoughts CAPTIVE to Messiah, His Word and His Spirit!

Command them with your own voice to line up!

OUR WINNING POSITION

But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Messiah  (by grace you have been saved),  and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua. Ephesians 2:4-6

Our position in the Spirit is the highest possible! We are seated in the Third Heavens above all power and principality which is in the Second Heavens. The whole army of satan is under our feet!

WisdomWe have been given authority over all the power of the enemy!

Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. Luke 10:19

We have been made a little lower than Elohim, the Creator Himself!

What is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, and You crown him with glory and majesty! Psalm 8:4-5

In most translations this verse is mistranslated to “a little lower than angels” but in the original Hebrew it says: “A little lower than Elohim!” In other words HIGHER than the angels! We must remember that satan is a fallen angel!

How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn (Lucifer!)! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations. Isaiah 14:12

The Angels of YHVH, His obedient heavenly host are our allies and helpers!

But to which of the angels has He ever said, “Sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet“? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:13-14

They need to minister, help and assist us and they will do what we say IF we say what Yah says! They cannot help us if we are speaking words of unbelief and fear!

Bless YHVH, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, obeying the voice of His word! Psalm 103:20

They are powerful, mighty in strength and are ready to do the Word of Yah’s Command! Except Yeshua said that all executive authority has been given unto Him and He gave it to us!

All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…Matthew 28:18, 19

WisdomWe are assigned to execute Yah’s authority on earth and it includes COMMANDING ANGELS! Angels are sent to obey our commands IF we speak and pray Yah’s perfect will and His Perfect will is all over the Bible!

Read out loud Deuteronomy 28:1-14 and see His perfect will for all His obedient children!

Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 28:1-2

Then proceed to read from verse 15 and on and read about the curse for all those that rebel against Him. It is time to discern His Perfect Will for if you don’t you will have your spiritual senses dulled to believe that every evil circumstance is His perfect will or “test” for you! It is NOT! It is satan that came to steal, kill and destroy not YHVH!

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. John 10:10, 11

Our test is in our response! Will we use the Spiritual Weapons or will we go “under the circumstances” and excuse it with “it must be God’s perfect will for me to be “under the weather”. No, it is not! His Perfect Will is for you to walk BLESSED, healthy, wealthy and successful in His Calling. In fact when He blesses us the nations fear His name!

God blesses us, that all the ends of the earth may fear Him. Psalm 67:7

WE MUST BE VIOLENT

From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force. Matthew 11:12

You cannot defeat the enemy in your life without being violent in the Spirit! If a dog comes to bite you, will you “pet him?” or speak kindly to it! No, you won’t you will kick him hard and you will use your voice, hands, feet, a stick and whatever it takes to shake him off you, your children or anyone that that mean dog can harm! Satan is likened unto a “roaring lion seeking whom he may devour”.

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

WisdomBut you have much more authority than any lion, we have the authority of the Lion of Judah but we must exercise it! We must bind, lose, roar, kick and cast that devil out of our finances, health, family, ministry and everything! Even if breakthrough takes longer than expected STAY PUT and firm against the powers of darkness. Take the battle into the offensive instead of the defensive!

And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end,  so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:11, 12

It is time to get rid of all “sluggishness” and passive unbelief, shake off all the vipers from off you and praise Him, declaring His Word!

Let the godly ones exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, To execute on them the judgment written; this is an honor for all His godly ones. Praise YHVH! Psalm 149:5-9

Remember to pray that Israel stops being “defensive” against the powers of darkness and takes the “offensive” before the enemy takes more and more territory!
