In the United States, the Homeland Security Advisory System has a “color coded” terrorism threat advisory scale which displays the terror alert level. In the natural we have an enemy who is trying to kill, steal and destroy our country, but the true culprit is Satan.
In the same way, we must learn how to discern when to raise our personal threat warning to red. In order to go to a higher level with God, we have to recognize the spiritual attacks that are coming against us, and be aware of the enemies’ game plan in our lives. If we want to advance in the Kingdom of God, we have to have a strategy against the adversary, and understand that persecution comes with the territory.
We are living in a time where there is a war brewing in the spirit realm, but the Lord is inviting us to rise above it all and come into a higher place with Him. Jesus is handing out divine invitations and each one of us must personally respond.
The Lord says,
“I am inviting you into a new place but there are many of you who do not recognize it. This is not a place in the natural realm, but I am releasing to you access into the Heavenly realms. This is a place that no man could prevent you from entering, neither will any situation be able to hinder you from walking into. Some of you will willingly come with great expectation, some of you do not recognize it and there are others who are hesitant to enter in due to distrust and unbelief in your hearts. If you come into this new place you will learn spiritual principles that you have not yet experienced and access everything that I am releasing in this hour. Allow Me to reveal to you My plans and strategies to overcome evil.
As you come into this place, you will receive all that has been assigned to you. I am not confined to the natural realm and neither are you. I will take dominion over every part of your life that you allow Me to. I will rule over every place in your life that you submit to Me. Don’t allow unbelief to keep you from receiving.
Remember that you are not fighting against flesh and blood, but I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy. You have dominion over the rulers, powers, forces of darkness, and the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Many of you have said in your heart that you have heard this before but you have not experienced it in your personal life, but I say to you, as you remain steadfast your eyes will be unveiled so that you will see, and your ears will be unplugged so that you will hear,”
says the Lord.
“For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries” 1 Corinthians 16:9.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” Ephesians 6:11-12.
“After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne” Revelation 4:1-2.
