Entering the Enemy’s Camp – Part 3

Fear versus Fear

There is fear of the Lord meaning, a ‘deep awe and reverence for the majesty and holiness of God.’ Proverbs 1:7 tells us that, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” The fear of the Lord is what keeps us from contaminating our vessels. Fear of the Lord is therefore, the start of our Christian journey, I believe. “Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.” (Acts 13:26, KJV)

Then there is fear—to be afraid, frightened. This fear is what the enemy uses to trap many babes in Christ. Being a babe in Christ is not threatening to the enemy and his army of demons. However, a mature believer who continues to grow [getting closer to God through prayer and fasting; reading the bible and applying its instructions to their lives—faith in action; constantly praising God] that is a follower of Christ who can do damage to the kingdom of darkness. That’s a believer who is armed with weapons of mass destruction, ready and willing to go into the enemy’s camp and not just take back what he has stolen, but seal the entrance where he once gained access to carry out the operation of robbery. Then help release the prisoners.

The Master’s Prayer Part 4

My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.” John 17:20-26 NIV

The Master’s Prayer Part 3

I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified. John 17:13-19 NIV
