Kingdom Security System: Zero Tolerance
In the natural if a man wants to be safe from his enemies, he will hire the best people to install tamper proof locks on every door and window, and install cameras, detectors and alarms covering every access point.
How foolish it would be for the man if he then refused to turn the security system on or lock the doors.
In the spiritual realm it is no different, when you are born again, My Holy Spirit installs the finest kingdom security system available. It can detect the slightest movement of your enemy.
It can sound many different voice alarms, depending on the approach of the enemy. Some times when it goes off it sounds like: FLEE* FLEE* FLEE, 2 Timothy 2:22.
Or: ABSTAIN* ABSTAIN* ABSTAIN, 1 Thessalonians 5:22.
Sometimes it goes off: FIGHT* FIGHT* FIGHT, 1 Timothy 6:12.
Or: MOVE* MOVE *MOVE, Mark 6:34.
It may sound like: SEEK* SEEK* SEEK, Acts 17:27-28.
Or: STAND* STAND* STAND, Ephesians 6:13-14.
MANY times it says: PRAY *PRAY* PRAY, Matthew 21:22.
Or: WAIT* WAIT *WAIT, Psalm 27:14.
One thing for sure, if you have it turned on, you will know it when it goes off. However, many have chosen to over ride it, believing it is a false alarm, because they trust their natural instincts over My Spirit. What you don’t realize is that, “I have sent you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: you must be as wise as serpents, and harmless as doves,” Matthew 10:16. My alarm system will go off when there are wolves dressed up as sheep, Matthew 7:15. There are many types of well disguised wolves, male and female all dressed as sheep.
There are Internet wolves dressed as harmless sheep sites. There are TV and movies with hidden wolf scenes and language. There are work place and classroom wolves dress in sweet, friendly sheepskins. There are religious church wolves sitting in the pews, dressed in holy looking sheepskins. There are business wolves, dressed in honest looking sheepskins, eager to steal and eat up your last dollar. There are family wolves and even spouse wolves all dressed up as sheep, waiting for your weak moment, when you have over ridden My alarm system!
When your heart is in My kingdom it becomes a zero tolerance zone for enemy activity. My alarm system is fail safe and will absolutely give no place for the devil to enter in, Ephesians 4:27. But you must never ever leave any door or window unlocked.
My grace backup system will cover any of your innocent over sites, but when you deliberately over ride, turn off My protection system or refuse to lock doors, you are at the mercy of your enemies. “When you know you should lock the doors, and don’t do it, you are deliberately sinning and inviting disaster!” James 4:17.
You sing: I want MORE?
I WANT MORE *** YOU TOOK THE WORDS RIGHT OUT OF MY MOUTH!
Some of your worship songs are beautiful and flow so nicely and I know they are sincere, but they are also sincerely wrong. I will speak of only one because it takes the words out of My mouth. My last words on the cross were “It is finished: and I bowed My head, and gave up the ghost,” John 19:30. At this moment I gave you everything I had, I have no more to give! When I rose again and ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand if My Father, I sent the Holy Spirit, to take over from there. Heaven’s work is all finished. There is nothing more that can or will be done. Everything is done.
My Father gave all He had when He gave Me because I was “His only begotten Son, that whoever believe in Me does not perish, but obtains everlasting life,” John 3:16. He has no other Son to give. He does no need to give any more because I paid your entire debt, I gave it all and I paid it all.
There are a few songs and a favorite saying that keep asking Me for more. I hear My people begging, More Lord, I want more, I want more, repeating it over and over. But your taking the words out of My mouth because that’s what My Spirit is saying to you. More Jim, more John, more Billy, more Linda, more Mary, I want more of you! I want more, I want more, I want more of your thought life, more of your time, more of your love, more of your devotion, as a matter of fact I want, “all your heart, and all your soul, and all your mind, and all your strength,” Mark 12:30.
When the Holy Spirit comes into your being, He fills all the areas of your life that you will give Him access too. But seldom if ever does anyone give Him access to every part of their being. Most of the time only a part of their heart and their tongue once in a while. Because He does not have access to your whole being, you fee inadequate to live an overcoming life so you keep asking for more, when all of the time My Spirit is asking for more areas of your being.
You do not need more of Me, My blood is enough, My grace is sufficient, and My Holy Spirit is all you will ever need, to reach your full potential. You, asking Me to do more, is a waste of time. You are so busy asking Me for more, you can’t hear Holy Spirit asking you for more of you. My Spirit is constantly asking you for more of you. He will continue to ask for more of you, until your faith comes into complete unity with Him, and you have the full knowledge of who I am in you, filled right up to a perfect man, and you ultimately measure up to My full stature, Ephesians 4:13.
Now you know the kingdom goal for every believer and the Holy Spirit’s reason for asking for more of you. Change the wording to: Please take more, please take more, more of me Lord, so that, “I can increase, and you can decrease, and I can move in to fulfill the desires of your heart!” John 3:30. Don’t let your music get out of line with My word, because it eventually forms your belief system and can move a whole generation off course, begging for what they already have!
