I Have Given You Power!
The prince of this world comes and is already at work in the world. He has nothing in Me says the Lord. As you walk with Me and as you follow Me, the wicked one has nothing in you, for you are Mine. The spirit of religion is empowered by the principalities of the power of the air, the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. I have known the conflict you have faced, you have never been alone. The battle is mine. I know the troubles you have faced in this past season, many being, troubled and torn, tired and weary. Rise up and walk says the Lord, for when you are weak than are you strong.
“Don’t you remember that I told you about all this when I was with you? And you know what is holding him back, for he can be revealed only when his time comes. For this lawlessness is already at work secretly, and it will remain secret until the one who is holding it back steps out of the way. Then the man of lawlessness will be revealed, but the Lord Jesus will kill him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by the splendor of his coming. This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth,” 2 Thessalonians 5-12.
You are the citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, just pilgrims passing through this world, pressing towards the promised land. And in this place called the wilderness, called the desert, called the valley, called temptation, called persecution, called the fire, KNOW THAT THIS TOO SHALL PASS. As you, My children are passing through not having any unction from the Holy One to be a part of this world, but totally set apart unto Me, you are in this world, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you will walk among the snakes and the scorpions, the death and the destruction of this world; and crush all ungodliness, and evil under your feet, and nothing will by any means hurt you says the Lord.
Drink of My peace. All has seemed futile to you at times, and many thought there would be no way out of the fiery trials and troubles in this last hour, they wearied themselves with the thought of saving their own lives, and many forgot about others, fallen and weary also. Many hearts have sunk into hopelessness and into despair, be not weary My children in this season, for it is the enemy’s plan to wear you out, “GREATER is He that is in you than he that is in this world”. You have endured many trials and many of you have come to the point of death and great loss even as My righteous servant Job. Many have looked at you and said, “why don’t you just give up”? Where is your God?
Many have turned aside from My word, and taken other roads, and followed the way of other gods, including the god of “self”. Many have chosen the way of deception even to becoming blind to My word, and My ways and many are NOT any longer walking according to truth, but have yielded to the ways and the games of this very present world. Many having turned to spiritual adultery, environments of the world and deadly doctrines of devils. Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.
But listen. Though many have mocked you, rejected you and attempted to destroy you, be still, be quiet and know that I am with you always. The religious of the day, the Scribes and the Pharisees, Sadducees, they betrayed Me, know this one thing the servant is not greater than his Master, nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message.
Dearly beloved, receive My peace. As those around you have looked upon your life and watched you as many of you have walked through your own “Garden of Gethsemane”, and as you steadfastly held onto your faith and integrity as My children, and as you persevered through it all, the unbelieving have been astonished at how this could be. With sweat dripping from your brow and blood running down your face they looked upon you and laughed even as they did to Me. But when they saw you had been emptied out of yourself and filled afresh and anew with greater faith, greater love, with greater power, they that have not believed have been astonished at the Grace that was bestowed upon you all. Rejoice My children for eye has not seen nor ear has heard what great things God has prepared for those that love Him. Look up for your redemption draws nigh.
