The Depth of Spiritual Warfare!!!
As I read more into the book of Daniel and see the ignorance of racism. And how people continue to speak and perform vile imaginations in their hearts against one another secondary to skin color. I am compelled to warn you again that you are being deceived. And to let you know that it is not about you, your small minds, and vain imaginations.
The Holy Spirit feels it necessary to keep this word at the forefront. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places.
“Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist and stand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]” (Ephesians 6: 12-13, AMP).
A Liar and a Murderer Are of the Same Spirit in God’s Eyes
I am going to warn you now. Many of you exalt yourself above others. Thinking that you alone are chosen because of your skin color, lineage, and any other deceiving lie from the enemy. You are not going to make it.
Those who love lies and foolery. It is written. “He that worketh deceit shall not dwell in my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight” (Psalm 101: 7, AMP).
Do you know how the Holy Spirit explained that scripture and the day of judgment to me when I was a child? He told me that as soon as a liar stands before Him in judgment. The minute he opens his mouth on the day of wrath. Before he utters a word, he will be sent to that Great Lake that burns with fire and brimstone. Where the worm dieth not.
It is going to be swift. Like tests that astronauts endure to simulate gravity, but greater.
Because it is Allowed, Does Not Mean That It Will Endure
Allow me to confirm that this battle is serious. It is written. “And [in my vision] this horn grew up to the host of heaven, and caused some of the host and some stars to fall to earth, and it trampled on them.
Indeed, it magnified itself to be equal with the Commander of the host [of heaven]; and it took away from Him the daily sacrifice (burnt offering), and the place of His sanctuary was thrown down (profaned)” (Daniel 8: 10-11, AMP).
Now please don’t misconstrue God’s power because “it” is allowed to do this. There is an explanation in the following scripture.
Now pay attention. “Because of the transgression [of God’s people- their irreverence and ungodliness] the host will be given over to the wicked horn, along with the regular sacrifice; and righteousness and truth will be flung to the ground, and the horn will do as it pleases [by divine permission] and prosper” (Daniel 8: 12, AMP).
If you need more clarification on this divine permission. Go back and listen to, watch or read the episode titled “Have You Checked in With Jesus Today”?
What Fellowship Does Light Have with Darkness
God was sending angels to give Daniel these visions of “the end of days”. So terrifying that he would be sick for weeks.
Daniel had such compassion for others and was so humble that he was constantly seeking God’s face. Fasting and praying. With the confession of sins. Pleading for mercy. While trying to understand what the visions meant.
His love for others was dynamic, meaningful, and inspiring in the eyes of God. Because Jesus is love. And we forget that man, all men are made in His image.
God sent Gabriel to him. From the first day that he sought understanding. Listen to Daniel.
“So he said to me, ‘O Daniel, you highly regarded and greatly beloved man, understand the words that I am about to say to you and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.’ And while he was saying this word to me, I stood up trembling.
“Then he said to me, ‘Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. But the prince of Persia was standing in opposition to me for twenty-one days. Then, behold, Michael, one of the chief [of the celestial] princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia” (Daniel 10: 10-13, AMP).
Violence is Synonymous with Frenzied, Crazed, and Maniacal
There are three key points here. What Daniel was seeking took tremendous effort for him to receive, on his part and the messengers. So, when you know that you are expecting awe-inspiring manifestations of talents and gifts. Much will be required. This is why many people sell their souls to the devil. It is quick and easy. At that moment.
Secondly, this war is being fought in the supernatural realm. In heavenly places. This battle became so sore that Gabriel, one of the most powerful angels, was abandoned.
And thirdly. Many cannot receive this word because they have been turned over to a reprobate mind. Overtaken by hate. Not realizing that they are in a dark place. Fiendishly diabolical spirits prey on mentally weak, fragile minds. All of these characteristics ignite a portal to demonic possession.
Not only that but I am going to close with a couple more scriptures. Because Gabriel had to go back the same way that he came. And he gave Daniel a warning. Take heed.
We Are at War
“Then he said, ‘Do you understand [fully] why I came to you? Now I shall return to fight against the [hostile] prince of Persia; and when I have gone, behold, the prince of Greece is about to come. But I (Gabriel) will tell you what is inscribed in the writing of truth.
“‘There is no one who stands firmly with me and strengthens himself against these [hostile spirit forces] except Michael, your prince [the guardian of your nation'” (Daniel 10: 20-21, AMP).
He was telling Daniel to prepare. The prince of Greece was an evil entity. A dark spirit. He and those around him would come under attack. This warfare is relentless.
So, get rid of hate, murder, lying, pride, arrogance, and all manner of evil, or you will die in your sin. I feel led to add this. “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it” (Matthew 7: 13, AMP).
Let me confirm how narrow this gate is. This is one more revelation that the Spirit gave me when I was younger. In the book of Revelation, it is written, “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works” (20: 12, KJV).
Now the Book of Life is singular and the Books of the Dead is plural. Let that sink in.
