The Armour of God part 8

The Armor of God.

Part 8

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thus with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

The Power and Weapon of Prayer.
“““““““““““““““““““““““““““
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

Prayer should be like breathing for the child of God and we can never underestimate the power thereof. A prayerless Christian is a powerless Christian because we are born into a war and a spiritual wrestling match against the forces of darkness.

There’s a spirit in the air that kills, steals and destroy and we are called daily to find and draw our strength from the throne of our God who sits as the sovereign King and Ruler over all the kingdoms of this world.

When Jesus died on the cross and declared “IT IS FINISHED” God declared the defeat of the entire Kingdom of darkness and every born-again Spirit filled child of God must realise that we’ve been anointed with glory, authority and power to come against, pray against and declare God’s word against the wiles of the devil.

It’s important to always war from the perspective of the throne of God because it is written in Ephesians 1:15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,

16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him:

18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

19 And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power,

20 Which He performed in Christ, when He raised him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places,

21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come:

22 And has put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church,

23 Which is His body, the fullness of Him that fills all in all.

Colossians 2:9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Deity bodily.

10 And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

Can you see that beloved?

We always operate from the place of victory through the majesty, power and authority of the head of every saint the Lord Yeshua of Judah.

Jesus declared, after He defeated, hell, death and the grave on our behalf in Matthew 26:18 All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

We all have been commissioned with the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ to make a difference in this world.

Luke 10:18 And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions (SATANIC SPIRITS), and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Nothing and no one is greater and more powerful than our God but so few are walking in the reality of this.

WE ALWAYS WAR AND DO EVERYTHING FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE THRONE OF GOD. UNDERSTAND THE AUTHORITY THAT YOU HAVE IN GOD PRECIOUS CHILD OF GOD AND STOP TAKING NONSENSE FROM THE DEVIL.

Every child of God must have their prayer life built upon 2 Chronicles 7:14 if My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Why?

Because we must keep our lives and our hearts clean before the throne of God that our prayers will always be heard on high.

God said to me one day – “Why must I listen to you if you don’t listen to Me?”

He says in Isaiah 59

1 Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened so that it cannot save, nor is His ear heavy so that it cannot hear.

2 But your iniquities have come between you and your God, and your sins have hidden [His] face from you, from hearing. (Iniquities are unrepentant sin)

3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perverseness.

4 None calls for justice, nor does anyone plead for truth; they trust in vanity and speak lies. They conceive mischief and bring out iniquity.

5 They hatch adders’ eggs and weave the spider’s web; he who eats their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper.

6 Their webs shall not become clothing, nor shall they cover themselves with their works; their works [are] works of iniquity, and the act of violence [is] in their hands.

7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts [are] thoughts of iniquity; wasting and ruin [are] in their paths.

8 They did not know the way of peace, and [there is] no judgment in their paths. They have made crooked paths for themselves; whoever goes in them shall not know peace.

9 Therefore judgment is far from us; nor does justice overtake us. We wait for light, but behold, dimness; for brightness, [but] we walk in darkness.

10 We grope [for] the wall like the blind, and we grope as if [we had] no eyes. We stumble at noonday as in the night; [we are] in deserted places like dead men.

11 We all roar like bears, and mourn grievously like doves; we look for judgment, but none; for salvation, but it is far off from us.

12 For our transgressions [are] multiplied before You, and our sins testify against us. For our transgressions are with us; and [as for] our iniquities, we know them;

13 in transgressing and lying against the LORD, and going away from our God, talking cruelty and revolt, conceiving and speaking from the heart words of falsehood.

14 And justice is driven back, and justice stands afar off; for truth has fallen in the street, and right cannot enter.

15 Yea, truth fails; and he [who] departs from evil makes himself a prey. And the LORD saw, and it displeased Him that [there was] no judgment.

16 And He saw that [there was] no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. Therefore His own arm brought salvation to Him; and His righteousness sustained Him.

17 For He put on righteousness like a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head. And He put on the garments of vengeance [for] clothing, and was covered with zeal like a cloak.

18 According to [their] deeds, accordingly He will repay; fury to His foes, deed for deed to His enemies. He will repay their deeds to the coastlands.

19 So they shall fear the name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall make him flee.

20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgression in Jacob, says the LORD.

In verse God says, “But your iniquities have come between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, from hearing.”

There’s a difference between a sin, a transgression and a iniquity.

Psalm 32:5 I confessed my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, I will confess my transgression to the LORD; and You forgave the iniquity of my sin.

Sin starts in the heart.

Jesus said in Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Matthew 15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashed hands defiles not a man.

Then when we act out the sin that starts out in the heart it becomes a transgression.

If we don’t repent of it and allow God to deal with it then that transgression becomes a iniquity in the bloodline that can affect future generations.

When God introduced himself to Moses He never gave any laws, commandments or precepts before He said the following in Exodus 34:6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

So we see the importance to walk humbly before God with a repentant heart always alert and awake, not ever giving Satan any place or foothold in any area of our lives if we desire to be effective and powerful in prayer. It’s important to always keep an open pure channel between God and yourself because we are commanded in Ephesians 5:8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light

9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth),

10 proving what is acceptable to the Lord.

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.

13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.

14 Therefore he says, Awake, sleeping ones! And arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.

15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

1 Peter 3

1 Likewise, you wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;

2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.

3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own husbands:

6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters you are, as long as you do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

7 Likewise, you husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

8 Finally, be you all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brothers, be pitiful, be courteous:

9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that you are thereunto called, that you should inherit a blessing.

10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

7 And the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, my brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are right, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue and if there is any praise, think on these things.

There’s a satanic lie going around in the body of Christ that God does not see our sins because He looks at us through the blood of Jesus and there’s no scripture that supports this lie.

The Lord declared the following through a word given to the late prophet Jim Hammerle –

“My Grace never overrules My Father’s holiness!

My blood covers any sin that you have confessed, repented of, and turned from, but all fleshly works, deception and hidden sin, will ignite as it approaches My Fathers holiness for He is a consuming fire.”

1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

7 But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleans us from all sin.

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Then the Lord gave better understanding about sin through another word through Jim Hammerle – You’re Catholic friends got some things right, but they were mixed in with so many Roman Catholic doctrines, that the human footnotes by the popes and other leaders took precedence over the truth in My word, making much of it null and void.

In the separation from the Catholic Church there were some accuracies that were also thrown out by the protestant church in the Reformation. I will share one Kingdom truth that they had accurate.

The truth about sin as it’s viewed in My Kingdom. The catholic reference to sin categorizes it into two simple categories, venial and mortal, which are very Catholic sounding categories but very accurate in My Kingdom.

Venial sin does not carry the death sentence, and mortal sin carries a death sentence. We in the kingdom refer to as the second death, (Revelation 20:14).

Two Sin Categories:
“If any man see his brother sin a venial sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death,” 1 John 5:16-17.

It is extremely important for you to understand this, because I see many believers heaping condemnation on those who are sinning a sin that is not until death, as if they are going to be sent to hell for it, which is the farthest thing from the truth.

Here is the real truth, those who are picking out these lesser sins are guilty of more sins than the person they are pointing out. This form of self righteousness actually puts them in danger of a sin that is onto death. It is the sin of judgmentalism.

I very clearly and specifically said, “Judge not, and you shall not be judged: condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: forgive, and you shall be forgiven,” Luke 6:37.

All those who do this are setting themselves up as Me, deciding who is worthy of the death penalty. and who is not. I said very clearly as you judge, I will judge!

By you heaping condemnation on another brother or sister for something I do not condemn in that manner, you have forced Me to judge you with the same self-righteous harshness you used on earth.

You can be sure after breaking this Kingdom principle that I will carefully scrutinize all of your judgments that you have made on earth and judge you in the same manner. You are to only pray for the forgiveness of that sin in another person’s life, not condemn them. It is by your old uncrucified human nature that you make self-righteous judgments and therefore are opening yourself up to greater judgment when you stand before Me.

Sins That Are Unto Death:
To help you out let Me categorize just a few sins:

Sins that send the human soul to Hell, the second death, (Revelation 20:14).

These are sins that the individual who commits them, must first of all confess directly to Me and I will cleanse and cover that sin no matter what it is, with My blood and it will no longer exist.

“If you confess your sins, I promise I am faithful and just to forgive your sins, and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness,” 1 John 1:9.

One of the greatest sins unto death is how you treat an orphan and widow. Both in the New Testament and the Old Testament, My Father does not change his attitude.

In the Old Testament He says, NOTE; These are My Father’s very own words:

“You shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child. If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry; And My wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless,” Exodus 22:22-24.

However in the New Testament, He said,

“it would be better if a millstone were hung around your neck and your cast into the sea than to stand before Him on judgment day,” Matthew 18:6.

This is very serious with My Father, yet taken very lightly with millions of believers. The children, especially orphans, are mistreated, and neglected, when donations are given, many times it’s trash that someone decided to throw into a donation basket instead of on is on the dump.

I also said, “In as much as you’ve done it unto the least of these you’ve done to me.” Millions of tons of trash I’ve been thrown at My feet, revealing that there is no heart change in donor always keeping the best for themselves and throwing the trash at My feet. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal, Matthew 25:40-46.

Then then there are the more well known listed sins unto death such as:

“Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God but go to hell,” Galatians 5:19-21.

Sins That Are Not Unto Death:
These are sins often called faults, that you see committed by others that you can pray for them, ask forgiveness for them, and they will be forgiven, without them even knowing it, however your prayer must be based in love, not self righteousness.

Your attitude must always be to restore never to put down.

“If a man be overtaken in a fault, you which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering yourself, lest you also be tempted,” Galatians 6:1.

These are personal sins that you are to confess not to Me, but to one another, that you might be healed in that area. These are sins that do not involve other people as much as they involve one’s own self, such as smoking and habitual things that are not good testimonies and not good for your physical body. These also include bad language and habits that have not been broken, (James 5:16).

These sins will be dealt with at My personal judgment seat, not the great white throne judgment. The loss here will be loss of rewards not loss of your soul. This is where:

“every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire,” 1 Corinthians 3:13-15.

Here is the good news that can handle every type of sin, the secret place where you spend time in the presence of My Father will eventually destroy all the works of the devil, no matter what type of sin it is, because you will take on My Fathers sinless nature.

The greatest place on earth is the secret place of the Most High. If you make that your dwelling place and you will never suffer any of the effects of sin. (end of quote)

A powerful way to increase your personal prayer language is intense and much time in the Word because later as you develop spiritually and grow in your understanding of the word and you memorise more scripture you’ll find that the Holy Spirit will start to pray the word of God and according to the word of God through you because when you fill yourself with His word you fill yourself with the understanding of the heart of God then you pray powerful Holy Spirit led and inspired prayers in agreement with the Father’s will.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps our weakness: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought but the Spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

27 And He that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

Then we come to the supernatural prayer language of the tongues of mysteries, not the gift of tongues as in Acts 2 when they supernaturally uttered God’s wonderful works in the different languages of those present as we see in Acts 2:6 Now when this was sounded abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because every man heard them speak in his own language.

7 And they were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these who speak Galileans?

8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, in which we were born?

9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, Jews and proselytes,

11 Cretans and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

Then there’s the supernatural Holy Spirit prayer language by which also He gives utterance through the spirit of the believer but this language is the language of heaven and we read in 1 Corinthians 14:

1 Follow after love, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that you may prophesy.

2 For he that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks not unto men, but unto God: for no man understands him; but in the spirit he speaks mysteries.

It’s important to petition the throne of God to impart this supernatural Holy Spirit empowered ability to pray for this is the language spoken of in Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thus with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

If you cannot yet pray in your heavenly prayer language then simply ask according to Luke 11:10 For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.

11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he asks for a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?

12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
