The Plan of God versus The Plan of Satan
Each person has a plan for his or her life according to the Word of God. We have been predestined for greatness and the highest purpose of God. However, the enemy of our souls has another plan for our lives.
Satanís plan is activated by fear, selfishness, lack of self-control, lack of faith and many other weaknesses that Satan and his dupes feed upon to try and ruin the lives of all human beings.
I am very sad to hear many ďChristiansĒ receiving dreams, visions, and revelations which are actually Satanís plans for our lives, our country and the world. The Bible purposely leaves dates, times, places and the specific details open, so that people can repent even as Nineveh repented, and the people of Nineveh were delivered from their own destruction due to their repentance for the sins that would have caused them to be annihilated.
Before I went overseas as a Missionary for 13 years; I had several terrible dreams. At first, I thought they were from the Lord, and I thought they were prophetic. However, later, I realized that they were Satanís plan for me and many others. The dream was not Godís plan for me, but it was sent my demon spirits so that if I believed it; it would produce fear in me and propel the dreams into reality.
Later, I determined not to receive those horrible dreams, and I prayed for the faith that I needed to believe for Godís perfect will and what He wanted for my life. He gave me several very wonderful dreams that were not from the second heaven where Satan has his plans; but the dreams were from the third heaven and from the throne of almighty God.
I believe so many Christians are getting dreams that are nightmares, and they should not be received as if they were going to come to pass. Lack of faith in God and fear will cause those evil dreams to take root and bear fruit.
However, if you instead pray for the Lordís Kingdom to come in your life and His will to be done; you can know that the Lord has a wonderful plan for you despite the many tribulations that are going on around us.
It is through much tribulation that we enter into the Kingdom of God. Donít be deceived into receiving Satanís dreams, thoughts and visions as if they were from The Lord Jesus Christ. Satan is a great impostor, deceiver and trickster.
Many Christians are being deceived by speaking out the demonic dreams they are receiving, as if they were from God. Their words are actually promoting the ungodly plans of Satan which can be reversed through prayer, worship, fasting, and proclaiming the Word of God.
We are to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and we should not be speaking out negative, ungodly visions, thoughts and dreams that are sent from the second, Satanic heaven.
Speak out the Word of God, as Jesus prayed, ďThy Kingdom come; They perfect will be done in earth as it is in heavenĒ. We need to proclaim Godís plans, and purposes to be done in earth.
We are to occupy and take our territory until the Lord returns. We are to be like Joshua, Caleb, Josiah, Elijah and Jehu. We are to be ambassadors of The Lord Jesus Christ, and we are not to declare the plans of Satan.
I hear many well meaning Christians quoting what they hear that is doom and gloom, and they donít realize that these are the lies and plans of the enemy, and the enemy is using Christians to promote his agenda.
Please let us not let the plans, words and agenda of Satan ever be spoken out of our mouths. Let us speak the Truth of Godís Word in love.
Yes, we will go through many afflictions, but always remember that the Lord Jesus Christ delivers us out of them all. Hallelujah! Have faith in Godís Word, and do not listen to the lies of Satan which will attempt to destroy your faith, your hope, your love, your enthusiasm for the Lordís plans and purposes.
I realized that Satan gave me those horrible dreams before I went overseas to try and frighten me, and to try and discourage me in my work. However, it taught me a great lesson in my walk with God. Godís dreams are always redemptive, and they will never leave you without hope, joy and peace.
Letís start quoting what The Word says about His people even through much tribulation; He is always with us, and nothing can every separate us from Godís love, protection, and care for those who love Him, and for those who are called according to His glorious purposes.
