Things are about to get hotter!

Posted by appolus on January 11, 2011

Saints, I am convinced that there is a mighty battle going on right now, even as we speak. I believe that this battle will soon overflow from the spiritual realm into this physical realm. And we know from Scripture that our battle is against principalities and powers, against the worlds rulers, against the darkness of this age and against spiritual wickedness in high places. (eph 6:12) I am convinced that the saints that have been called to pray and intercede are experiencing trials and tribulations like never before because of this very battle. It may be in the mind and it may have physical manifestations or probably both. Now is the time for steadfastness. Now is the time to prevail and overcome. Now is not the time to shrink back although the flesh may cry out for that.

Times are dark and it is vital that Gods people cry out to Him. That phrase , ” cry out,” is used multiple times in the Scriptures and truly reflect the hearts of those who are called by God Himself.  

Psa 126:1-6 A Song of degrees. When Jehovah turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream. (2) Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing; then they said among the nations, Jehovah has done great things with them. (3) Great things did Jehovah to work with us and we are glad. (4) Turn again our captivity, O Jehovah, as the streams in the south. (5) Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. (6) He who goes forth and weeps, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
 
The Lord will undoubtedly use the tears of the burdened saints to water the seed and they will see a harvest of transformed lives. Let Christendom awaken from its slumbers and let them be full of the light of God which is the life in men.
 

Then he said to me, Do not fear, Daniel; for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and to chasten yourself before your God, your words were heard. And I have come for your words.

Dan 10:12

 

  
It is comforting to know that from the very first day that Daniel began to fast and pray that his prayers were heard before the throne and we see that there was a battle going on that was unseen. Saints, I am convinced that there is a mighty battle going on right now, even as we speak. I believe that this battle will soon overflow from the spiritual realm into this physical realm. And we know from Scripture that our battle is against principalities and powers, against the worlds rulers, against the darkness of this age and against spiritual wickedness in high places. (eph 6:12) I am convinced that the saints that have been called to pray and intercede are experiencing trials and tribulations like never before because of this very battle. It may be in the mind and it may have physical manifestations or probably both. Now is the time for steadfastness. Now is the time to prevail and overcome. Now is not the time to shrink back although the flesh may cry out for that. All the promises are made to those who ” overcome.” The Lord tells us to be of good cheer because He has overcome the world and that is how we overcome. Here is the mindset of the overcomer, and the enemy of our souls would say……….. 
  Dan 3:15 But if you do not worship, in that moment you shall be thrown into the middle of a burning fiery furnace. And who is that god who shall deliver you out of my hand?  And here is the reply of Gods faithful children……………
 

 

Dan 3:16-18 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to return a word to you on this matter. (17) If it is so that our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, then He will deliver us out of your hand, O king. (18) But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods nor worship the golden image which you have set up.
  
That last sentence sums up the overcomer ” and they loved not their souls unto death.”  Isn’t interesting that the reaction of the enemy to those words was to make the furnace seven times hotter than normal. I believe this is exactly what will happen when Gods people all over the world engage the enemy on this level, when they wake up and take a stand against the ” rulers of this world.”  He will turn on them with such an intensity. But glory bet o God we see that even when the furnace was seven time hotter, when the enemy has done its worse, its the enemy who dies, its the enemy who bows the knee to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords and acknowledges the true and the living God.

    Yes Frank, very true and pertinent words for the horrific times we live in. As a pastor, I feel and sense this oppression coming down in increasing orders of magnitude in the culture, and the world in general. The spiritual warfare is very difficult. My prayer life has been attacked ferociously over the last 3 years as the enemy turns up the heat, And human-centered concerns for my family [especially my kids] adds to it. Yet the Spirit is alive and active; the real battle is within the mind and heart: do we respond with the weapons of this age or with the weapons of the Spirit and the Word? Do we compromise in the increasing gov’t crackdown on Christianity, or do we come together as never before, praying in the Spirit and the Word? Yes, we need to separate from this wicked age in order to prevail and know that the One we trust in laughs the kings of this world to scorn: and they will be brought low and the humble lifted up.
    Thank you, Dan
