We Have Been Duked
We have not exposed Satan as we should have and we are now in need of some radical action. In my experience with social networks (I have been put off of all of them; accounts suspended) because of spreading the Gospel. If this is being done to me, (just someone that’s trying to tell everybody about Christ and save a life) what about those that are effectively reaching more of the world than me? The Devil is a liar; he has been busy in earth trying to destroy heaven's work; especially since he had been kicked out of heaven and can't go back again. I knew he hated us and would go to many lengths to enlarge his territory but we have helped him out, mostly without realizing it. It’s time we get rid of the weak link that seeks to kill the Spirit that dwells in us and gives us the power to overcome the enemy.
In listening to Bishop Adam Edwards on tonight he brought a point home that made this plain to me. I had been praying for a whole month now and seeing what God was saying. I use to get a lot of slack about my belief in Christ since a child and the ways that I have learned of these demons operating in the earth. People God is real, Jesus is real, the Holy Ghost is real and Satan is real too! We the people of God need the Holy Ghost like John the Baptist leaped in his mother’s womb and received when Jesus walked in. John the Baptist was the son of Zacharias and Elisabeth. Zacharias was a priest and Elisabeth was of the daughters of Aaron. They were both righteous before God, walking in all the and ordinances of the Lord blameless. They had not had a child because Elisabeth was barren (childless, unproductive, or fruitless) and now they were well stricken in years.
Now who else can take a hopeless situation and turn it around for his glory other than God? While Zacharias was about God’s business in Luke 1:5-23 and made incense before the Lord an angel of God Gabriel told him that God had heard his prayer. He told him that Elisabeth would bear him a son and he was to call his name John. John would be great in the sight of the Lord and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost even from his mother’s womb. I dare to John leaped for the Holy Ghost that was in his presence when Jesus showed up in the womb of Mary. God didn’t stop there the angel gave Zacharias John’s purpose for coming Many of the Children of Israel shall be turned to the Lord their God, he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
In Daniel 12:4 God spoke to Daniel to shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel was given a glimpse into the future and received the information of the times of the end. Verse seven says Daniel heard one of the two men he saw in linen which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swear by him that lives forever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
Scatter the power of the holy people? Who are the holy people Daniel is talking about here? Who would want to scatter the holy people? Scatter means to disperse, disband, or spread. It also means to diffuse, dispel, dissipate or distribute. The Devil, Satan himself intends to coerce God’s people into a state of being duked that we miss the point of what’s really going on in the world. We are in the end times now; look at how the love of many is waxing cold as Jesus told us in Matthew 24:12-13 and man seem to not be able to or want to endure to the end. We can see the decline of the elite of the men and women of God. When John came to man he was born of a holy man and woman barren and blameless. When Jesus came to man he was born of a holy woman pure and undefiled by any man. God calls us holy people and we are those in this end time that God wants to use. We have been born of God’s Spirit which is pure, holy and blameless. This is the power given us that Satan seeks to scatter; where there is division there is every evil work. Satan is the playwright, author, and writer that enacts, performs, and exaggerates sin in the life of the believer; the holy people. He knows his duration is almost over and he desires us to be a part of his entourage.
Daniel was told when telling God that he didn’t understand and wanted to know when the end would be to go on his way for the words were closed up and sealed tll the time of the end. Many God said shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. My Christian brothers and sisters we are the called, anointed, and appointed holy people that cannot stay quiet. It’s time we get radical for Christ just as John the Baptist did. It’s time we relook at the purpose for which we have been called. We are soul winners for Christ. We are here to take back by force what the Devil has tried to take back from God.
Bishop Adam Edwards reminded us of a profound truth on last night. He told us that God in the beginning with the Word and Spirit worked harmoniously together to create man in their image. Now the three; Father, Son which is the Word, and the Holy Ghost came together again in the births of John the Baptist and Jesus to bring that holiness and purity of Spirit to man again. He really brought out that we need as The Church of Christ have to come together as never before and stand on the Word of God, follow His Spirit’s leading and trust our Heavenly Father that loves us like never before. We need to talk less of the idle talk, what we know or don’t know that is not important to the work of God. God took away Zacharias voice where he could not talk. Why would God do this? It wasn’t that he would not rejoice at what God said, but it kept away any doubt Satan would try to penetrate in his mind concerning his situation to be spoken.
Satan didn’t get the opportunity to try his dukes at Zacharias, Elisabeth, or Mary and do you see that the men were silenced. Why? The man is the head and what they say that is according to God is gospel. God gave man the same power He operates off of. Man has power to call those things that be not as though they were. Life and death is in the power of the tongue. He didn’t get the opportunity to use Zacharias mouth. We the holy people of God need to speak the Word and shut out everything else that is not like God or Godly. We have been duked; repent. Our mouths at some point has been used for the wrong reason.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
