Eagles don’t play with selfish birds
“As yet I am as strong this day as I was on the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in,” Joshua 14:11.
Sometimes your enemies think that your strength diminishes because of the battles and warfare that you face. What Satan and his cohorts fail to realize, is that you are not operating in your own human strength, but in the supernatural power of God.
The enemy forgets that if you have a relationship with God, that you have not gotten weak, but now you stand with more power and authority than when you first started this journey. What a lot of people don’t understand is now you know strategy and warfare methods that God has taught you, that takes the labor out of your warfare.
Your most important battles are won as you sleep and you battle demonic forces in your dreams defeated principalities and powers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places.
One thing that I learned in battle is to leave no prisoners; kill the strongman and all his offspring. I’m finding myself fighting more powerfully now because God has given me warfare plans that are guarantee to obtain victory.
Chopping, cutting, sending fire, uprooting, plucking up, and using all my spiritual weapons, I’m aiming to destroy the works of darkness with a vengeance now!
A Prophetess I love dearly said something to me that is great wisdom: “Stop being so available to those that don’t respect you, or value the contents of anointing and wisdom you carry, that know you love souls and will help people, but are only using you to get what they want or to get through your doors.”
I got it, and you know who you are. Started yesterday, and true colors started showing up! Eagles don’t walk with chickens, play with turkey’s or fellowship with buzzards, nor entertain vultures! This eagle is flying and refuse to come down and play with selfish birds!
Breaking religious barriers
Breaking religious barriers and changing bondage mindsets is a mandate that God has thrust upon me in this season. My heart bleeds for those that have been held captive and in bondage because of man made rules and regulations that tries to disqualify them for the position and destiny that God has ordained for them.
Destroying the myths that man has set up to keep people suppress and oppress, can be a very long and tiresome job, because you many times have to deal with spiritual generational mindsets of error and ancestral mindsets of religious attributes. The process of freeing a mind that has been program from birth to believe concepts that are wrong takes much patience and strength.
Sometimes it’s a seesaw battle because you can get them to a place of recognizing that their mind has been messed and and get them on the road to freedom and then they turn around and get entangled again into the bondage because their family or friends attack them so greatly and make them feel like they are crazy for rejecting their rules of salvation. Many are held in religious bondage because of denominational rules.
They speak more of works and discourage you from really seeking a more intimate and personal relationship with The Lord. They limit the knowledge of God by not allowing them to hear any other preachers but the ones in their group and forbid them from associating with any other church than the ones in their organization.
Rather than planting ministries, we are planting cults to control the people, and keep them in bondage to the church denomination, rather than guiding them into learning more about The Lord. The religious and denominational concepts are develop to make sure that division and strife remains among the Body of Christ.
The enemy fights unity and strength so he has a well develop plan to keep the people of God from joining together so he brings doctrine splits of man made rules and uses certain portions of the word to make people fight each other. Our beliefs, our teachings, should all line up, if we understand that there is one Lord one Faith one baptism.
Man has always taken the word of God and used it to gain control of the people. They teach works and rules to regulate as to just how much the people can receive rather than pointing them to The Lord and showing them how to form a personal relationship themselves with Him.
They place orders of do’s and don’t from their point of view to keep them limited in their growth. Religion comes to kill the freedom to serve and worship God without the influence of man. It comes to control your actions and feelings and to always make you feel like you will never be good enough for The Lord.
This teaching has taken away the hope and desire of the people and made them to only feel condemned rather than convicted. When man begins to think that he is a god over the people rather than a servant to The Lord and the people than you will see a people depressed oppressed suppressed and without hope serving The Lord in bondage rather than in the joy and freedom that Christ provided when He died on the cross and rose from the grave!!
If we can get the ego of man out the way perhaps we can have a greater harvest of souls!
NOTE: When I talk about man that also includes woman. Have to fix that for the women who are man bashers because they have issues with men!
Time for some replacements
God sent a word on last night in Amarillo, Texas, IT IS TIME FOR SOME REPLACEMENTS!
Our disobedience will cause God to remove us and allow someone else to take our place. When the king spoke and summons for Vashti to come regardless to how she felt or how it look she wasn’t suppose to deny his request.
Like many of us when The King calls for us we make excuses as to why we can’t come forth or do what He ask us to do. We look at the circumstances or situation and say I can’t do that at this time.
The Lord is putting a NO in the mouth of some people, so that He can move you into the position He has for you so that you can cause a nation to be saved!
Somebody’s disobedience is your opportunity to be used. There is a great changing of the guards in this hour. Esther wasn’t looking for this promotion but God choose her and he had to remove somebody to make room for her elevation so that his will could be done!
