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.

Entering the Enemy’s Camp – Part 2

“See, you’re trying to steal my joy, my peace, my family and bring confusion to my mind but I won’t allow it. I refuse to go to that place of confusion. All that you are trying to steal, God gave them to me. They are mine ‘for keeps’. I will not allow you to rob me of my joy or my peace.

God told me that I am free: “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (St. John 8:36, KJV). I believe God. Moreover, through my freedom, comes love[1] that ignites my joy, my peace, and my self-control. These are included in the many gifts that God has given to me, so I can worship Him in spirit and in truth. Therefore, I command you, in the name of Jesus Christ, to take your hands off me and all those connected to me. I have allowed you and your demons to sit comfortably in my house but no more! My freedom in Christ, represents broken chains for God told me that EVERY SHACKLE HAS BEEN BROKEN.

Introduction

Wednesday 29th April 2009

07:00 – I went into the kitchen to start breakfast, shortly after devotion, this morning. A down feeling came over me. I started singing the following song and bringing forth the following message:

“Bless the Lord

Oh my soul

And all that is within me

Bless His holy name…”

“I’m encouraging myself in the Lord today because the enemy desires to keep me down, and I refuse to stay this way” It was hard to praise with that heaviness and I started to think of others in similar situation and how I could encourage them. At this point, I envisaged a congregation of people with the spirit of heaviness upon them and I started to say to them, “I want you to help me bless the Lord today. Tell yourself to bless His holy name. Come on and…
