Nine Ways How The Devil Attacks And How Can You Counter It


1) 2 Cor 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Let us wash ourselves off, from every defilement so that all actions that affect the flesh and spirit can become matured into God’s standard.

This standard is the absolute separation from all that is common to this world into a devotion to what is sacred and precious to God.

2) 1 Thess 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The God that brings “shalom peace” bring it into your life. This may He do by separating you totally from all common things, and bringing you to a devotion to the sacred things of God.

This sanctification is accomplished by your spirit, soul, and body each made complete, whole, and without defect, so that your life might not have one source of just criticism placed upon it.

May you be guarded and kept in this condition until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

3) 2 Cor 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Transformed: To alter the outward appearance without a significant inward change.

It is closely illustrated to an architectural schematic, and shows us how the enemy can change the schematic of things.

4) Eph 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

“To give place” is like building an airport runway upon ourselves, for the devil to land upon.

Habitual disobedience to Jesus does this. We create an airport runways on our backs, where the enemy can land and take off at whim.

5) Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

This scripture is not given only to non-Christians. The devil is an equal opportunity attacker.

The Greek word for worketh is giving energy to.

The children of disobedience will allow the devil to energize his schemes.

Disobedience is non-compliant, defiant, and stubborn.

Any person who relates in this way to the voice of the Holy Spirit will allow the devil to energize his schemes, Christian or non Christian.

I know people who have been Christians for 35 years who are in the same predicament of bondage as the day they came to Jesus.

6) John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

“The prince of the world system comes, and it is impossible for him to have the tiniest connection with me.”

The real binding of the enemy occurs when every part of our lives has come into conformity to God’s will, and the enemy is forbidden a place or space where he can afflict us. The demonic had absolutely no relationship with Jesus. This is binding the enemu

7) 2 Timothy 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

That they may return to a sober condition and out of the snare of the devil, after having being hunted down, taken captive, and caught alive by him, in order to do “his” will.

So few understand how the devil manipulates and attacks them.

For many the devil is not real.

Nothing delights him as much as when people believe that he is a figment of the imagination.

8) 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Be controlled, free of evil passions, and serious in in your relationship to Jesus, because your “opponent in court”, the devil, as a roaring lion, lives to earnestly seek, whom he may drink down, swallow, consume, and destroy.

9)  Mat 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

He travels continually throughout arid places “seeking a cessation of his now unpleasant circumstances”, and in no way finds it.

This shows the necessity that demons have to possess a living being

44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

I will return into my house from where I came out, and having arrived finds it vacant and in a perfected state of being swept, and cosmetically adorned, but empty of the Spirit of God.

45 Then he goes and takes along with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and entering in they dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Thus it shall also be for this wicked generation.”

A Planet Called Deception


Matt 24: 4   And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Look continually to yourself that nobody will “planetize” you.

The word “deceive” in the Greek. It is the word “planet”.

In Greek mythology, planets were called wanderers or the wandering ones.

Thus, this suggests the word deception. A person whom is being deceived aimlessly wanders away from the truth. The word planet is also used for “error”.

In the United Sates we see the prince of the authority of the air using technology to “planetize” people.

Eph 2:2(EB)  In which at one time ye walked, according to the age of the world, according to the prince of the authority of the air, of the spirit that now energiseth in the sons of disobedience,

Technology is an awesome tool which greatly benefits humanity and the work of the kingdom of God. The devil uses technology in the lives of those whom are not paying attention to their walks with God to cause them to planetize or wonder from the truth of the Word of God. Whereas Africa gets hit by a demon of poverty, the USA is getting wacked by a demon of distraction.

I am amazed at how many Americans the devil has planetized to cause them to look down at their technological gadgets.

When you get on an airplane to go to east Africa, you will find many looking down as well.  They, however, are looking down at their Bibles!

Matt 24:5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

“Many for will be coming upon the name of me, saying I am the anointed and will planetize many.”

The word “deceive” in verse 5 is in the active voice. This means that deceivers will actively planetize unassuming people who are not paying attention to themselves and their relationships with God.

2 Thess 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

“For the mystery of lawlessness, or what is void of all law, is now energizing, until the one who has the power to detain and keep it in check even at present, is from the midst becoming.”

A mystery is something that is hidden or that lives in the darkness of secrecy. A mystery must be revealed, since it cannot be accessed through our physical senses.  A mystery once totally veiled is now progressively revealed.

At the moment that Adam and Eve disobeyed God, the mystery of iniquity kicked in. Men in those days lived to be over 900 years of age. The progressive revelation of the mystery of iniquity has eaten up into the lifespan of mankind throughout the centuries.

8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy (non effectual) with the brightness of his coming:

And then will the Unlawed one will be uncovered whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth and will render useless and nonoperational with the epiphany of His presence.

This verse obviously talks about the Antichrist. The prevalent thing to notice here is that the Anti-Christ a man whom is void of all law, obviously a figure who thrives on anarchy, will be uncovered at a set season.

It does not take much to see the mystery of lawlessness, or better said anarchy, at work than in those who today contest that the legitimacy of the constitution is not prevalent or foundational to our country.

The voiding of the constitution if it were to succeed will bring anarchy.

Wherever the manifestation of Christ is, there is His work of making non effectual all that is sin.

9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

“Whose presence is in accordance to the energizing of Satan with every ability, signs and wonders found in what is pseudo.”

The word for “lying” in the Greek is pseudo. Something pseudo is a falsehood, a sham, something spurious.  What is pseudo, does not have to be entirely false. It just needs to contain enough half-truths to cause people to planetize from the truth.

10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

“And with every seduction, guile, and deceitfulness of doing what is not right in the eyes of God.”

Every disobedience towards God brings guile and deception as it seduces you.  This mystery of anarchy is energized in all of those that without an agape or unconditional love for the Word of God do not heartedly welcome it into their lives. The Word of God must be loved and welcomed, there is no other way!

11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

“And through this act of unwelcoming His Word, God sends them “ an energy of planetizing” for the purpose of them believing what is pseudo.”

This type of energizing is an activation that will cause people to wonder aimlessly into error for the express purpose of believing what is false.

Pneumatism


1 Thessalonians 5:23  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit(pneuma) and soul(psyche) and body(soma) be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Heb4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul (psyche) and spirit( pneumatos) , and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The role of the human spirit is generally a passive or inactive one.  The soul on the contrary is always active.  Our spirit works as a protective womb for the presence and the motions of the Spirit of the Living God within us.  It is very much connected with our hearts, and our consciences.

John 15:26  But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me

The role of our spirit is not to do, but to give an eye witness account.  Our homes have no other function but to house its dwellers.  The building is really of no importance.  The activities that take place within it are the ones of consequence what our Lord does.

We are “character witnesses who observe, and give evidence to the reputation, conduct, and moral nature” of the indwelling Christ to a dying world. (Meridian Webster dictionary definition).

It is only God’s activity that counts, and often it has little to do with ours.  Our busy activities many times get in the way of the Lord.  The body of Christ gets deceived because it does so much instead of just being.  Does a bottle work, or does it simply demonstrate what is inside?  God does need a lively Christian with a head full of bustling programs and agendas.  He needs a dead one that will display Him.  Remember, we are dead!  Christ is the one living in us.

The soul is a combination of our mind, will, intellect and emotions.  Its function contrary to the spirit is not to reveal, but to actively work and choose.  It is the mediator between our bodies and our spirits.

The soul is constantly involved in a struggle to choose between the promptings of the Holy Spirit and the promptings of our carnal flesh, our un renewed minds, the world, and the trickeries of Satan.  The Spirit of the living God within us, must become manifested enough to win the battle for the soul.

The responsibility of the soul then is to submit itself continuously to the Holy Spirit.  When it does that, the soul will take us in the ways of the Lord.  God must bring our will to a point where it has no more desire than to submit itself to the wishes of the Holy Spirit.

Our emotions must be healed and stilled before the Lord by the cross, so that we can attend to that “still small voice within”.

Immature believers, or believers that are still bound in the throes of demonic oppression or past hurts, are unable to discern clearly the quiet voice of the Lord within.  Because the emotions are still screaming out, they drown out the presence of the Lord.

All deliverance, inner healing, counseling, and therapy must be directed at setting us free to hear and uncompromisingly obey the Holy Spirit.  Healing is the means of becoming spiritual or pneumatic Christians.  Our mind and intellect must be renewed by the word of God so that it can adequately understand what the Holy Spirit wishes.

Armor


Eph 6:10  Finally, my brethren, be strong (constantly strengthened with dunamis power) in the Lord, and in the power ( dominion) of his might ( inward strength).

11  Put on the full armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the stratagems of the devil.

This verse commands us to continuously receive this dunamis power of the Lord so that He can be progressively revealed in our lives as the Christ that dwells in our hearts. This is the fullness of revelation.

The dunamis power of the Lord in verse 10 is defined as the display of the Lord’s outward dominion brought about by His inward strength.  This is what it means by “ the power of his might.”  This is sort of what happens to Pop Eye when he eats the can of spinach.  The tremendous inward strength that is multiplied within him is translated into a manifestation of outward strength which caused him to dominate and conquer all, even Bluto the bad man, who ran after beautiful Olive Oil.

This domination of external circumstances is called “dominion” and is in indeed the same as Lord’s dominion over all His creation.

The Lord’s dominion or manifested expression of the strength that resides within Him is found in His dunamis power. The extent of the Lord’s dominion that is transported by his dunamis power is His ability to subdue all things unto Himself.

Philippians 3:21  Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

The amount of God’s dunamis power working in us is measured as to how much we are allowing the Lord to subdue or bring the dominion of all things unto Himself.

The fullness of revelation of the Son is the fullness of the Lord’s power.  The fullness of revelation is the Christ dwelling, and not struggling, or competing with something else in our hearts.

The more that we live out of the dunamis power of the Lord because we have yielded our life in all meekness to the Lord the more that we shall see the Lord subdue all things underneath our feet.

This is the reality of our putting on the full armor of God.

The Consummate Energizer Bunny


God’s Resident Power

Eph  1:19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power ( DUNAMIS) to us-ward (FUNNELED INTO) who believe ( CONTINUALLY BELIEVING) , according to the working( ENERGY PUT OUT) of his mighty ( INNER SPIRITUAL STRENGTH) power,(EXTERNAL DOMINION)

What is the throwing beyond (homerun) greatness of His dunamis power funneled into us the ones believing according to the energy that is put out as God’s inner spiritual strength is translated into His external dominion.

Dunamis power is the inherent power within every created being, living, and non-living.  God has His own inherent dunamis power. Disease has its own type of dunamis power. Dunamis power is what distinguishes one object from the other, and gives to its life and power.

20 Which he wrought (ENERGIZED) in Christ, when he raised him from the dead (CORPSE), and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

Which He energized (PAST TENSE denoting a completed event) in Christ when He raised Him out of a corpse…..

“Working” in verse nineteen, and “wrought” in verse twenty are the same root word; ENERGY;

“Working, “ is the noun, energy.  “Wrought” is the verb to energize.

The definition of God’s DUNAMIS POWER is the energy that was “put out” (in the historical event 2000 years ago), as Christ was raised up from a corpse and made to sit far above in rank, power, and physical distance over all principalities, powers, and might, dominions, and all names which are named both in heaven and upon the earth.

This measure of dunamis power was once and for all energized and charged INTO CHRIST. Because Christ lives in us, so does this DUNAMIS POWER.  Christ is as the “energizer bunny” fully and forever more energized with this specific charge of energy. Christ charged in this manner dwells in the Christian.

The  living reality of this dunamis power, as it is funneled or manifested into us, comes in proportion to our faith. On other words, to the degree that we believe the Word of God is to the degree that this quality and measure charged energy is funneled into us.

Let us look at the properties of the dunamis power that we have resident within us and available when we walk in childlike obedience and faith

The Properties of God’s Resident Power

 Eph 1: 21  Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Far above in rank, power, and physical distance

Every type of principality – Or the beginning of every created thing

A principality is an authoritative demonic being.

However, in the NT, the word principality is also used for a physical beginning or commencement, the creation of something, and the root source of something.

The dunamis power of God in Christ, and charged in us is far above in rank and power, above every root problem such as generational sins, curses, judgments, and the root causes and beginnings in diseases. It is greater than the commencement of any problem. Christ was there with you, before the commencement of anything. Because of this, problems and illnesses can be reversed in your life.

Authority: Is power of choice; liberty to do as one pleases; jurisdiction such as the one which state police has over every road within a state, and the power of rule and government

Authority is the power of choice; or the liberty to do as one pleases, such as the jurisdiction enjoyed by a state policeman.

Cancer, for example has its own authority, in that it can spread at will throughout the human body. However, the authority found in Christ’s dunamis power has an authority far above in rank and power over that of cancer. By our words, as they are tempered with faith, the power of choice, or the liberty of action to command the cancer where we please, is available to us.

Dunamis power: The inherent power in every created thing that defines it and gives to it its life.

Eph 1: 21  Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

As we taught earlier, dunamis power is the inherent power exclusive, to every created thing.  Water, has an inherent power of its own, which gives to it its life, and describes it as water, exclusive of any another object.

Cancer has another kind of dunamis power.  God has His own dunamis power.  The dunamis or inherent power of Christ resident in us is far in rank and power above the inherent power of any other created object.  Hallelujah!  When we minister, we know that Christ’s inherent power will subordinate, subjugate and destroy the inherent power sustaining the evil that we are ministering against.

The inherent or dunamis power of something gives to it life, glory, and honor.  Cancer, though evil in nature, has its own evil glory and honor.  The word, “to rebuke” is defined as “UPON THE HONOR.”  When we rebuke cancer in JESUS NAME, we are heaping Christ’s power to bear upon the honor of the root source of the cancer and the liberty that it exercises and the very inherent power that makes it up and gives to its life.

Eph 1: 21  Far above all principality (BEGINNING), and power(AUTHORITY), and might, (DUNAMIS POWER) and dominion( LORDSHIP OR BONDAGE), and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

“Dominion” or lordship- Someone or something which can bring into bondage.

“And every name that is named.” And every name that identifies something for what it is exclusive of anything else.

22  And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

All these Christ subordinated and subjected under His feet.  When God gave Christ to be head over these things to the church; this same power is now available to us.

1 Cor 15:24  Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down ( TO CAUSE SOMETHING TO BECOME NON OPERATIONAL AND NON WORKING SO THAT IT MUST BE JUNKED!!) all rule and all authority and power.

Jesus will give the kingdom to God and the Father only when He shall have rendered totally ineffective (as an old car with an old engine, that finally breaks down and ceases to work any more, and must be junked) every type of principality, commencement and roots sources of all evils, all authorities or jurisdictions which are not from God, and every type of inherent power that gives life, function, glory, and honor to every type of evil.

Here are a few more examples of Christ’s power cutting the spark plug wires, destroying the distributor cap, and junking the inherent life, glory and honor of other things.

Romans 6:6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed (NON OPERATIONAL, NON WORKING, AND JUNKED)that henceforth we should not serve sin.

This shows us the death and separation from the sinful nature

1 Corinthians 1:28  And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought (NON OPERATIONAL  NON WORKING AND JUNKED!!) things that are:

God has a way to junk any devise or argument which is not of Him.

1 Corinthians 15:26  The last enemy that shall be destroyed (NON OPERATIONAL, NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!) is death.

2 Corinthians 3:7  But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away (NON OPERATIONAL,  NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!)

2 Corinthians 3:11  For if that which is done away (NON OPERATIONAL,  NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!) was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.

Hebrews 2:14  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy (NON OPERATIONAL,  NON WORKING, AND JUNKED!!) him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

The Chronicles of Ephesians: Spiritual Gifts


God’s Energy in Dunamis Power

God’s energy is always fully effective and fully flowing in us.

Ephesians 1:11  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who IS POWERFULLY ENERGIZING all things after the counsel of his own will:

 1 Cor 12:11  But all these worketh is POWERFULLY ENERGIZING that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing (DISTRIBUTING) to every man severally as he will (COUNSELS)

 Ephesians 3:7  Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the ( ENERGY)of his power.

Colossians 1:29  Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his POWERFUL ENERGY which IS ENERGIZED  in me AS GOD’S POWER OR ABILITY.

His energizing comes in proportion to us walking in His will and is given for us to carry out His will.

The message of universalism or Rob Bell’s message creates Christians whose want to do God’s will is not there since everybody will get saved at the end.

Spiritual Gifts

Spiritual gifts are used to take portions of God’s inheritance that we now know as His riches, energize them by means of His dunamis power, and make them visible as riches in the mode of glory through the physical bodies of His saints.

Every saint has spiritual gifts and must find out what they are. Spiritual gifts is what makes the invisible God, visible.

Every believer represents a portion of God’s land or kingdom in the midst of an evil world, where God rules unencumbered and displays His glory effectively through the saint through the means of spiritual gifts as they are powerfully energized through His operations.

 1 Cor 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

 6And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh (ENERGIZES) all in all.

·  The Motivational Aspect of the Gifts.

 Romans 12:6 Having then charismatic gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion (Greek “corresponding to the word) of faith;(belonging to faith)

Prophecy is faith in one of its manifestation, this manifestation being in the “the world belonging to faith, or which is produced in the spirit as an expression of faith.

Faith, which produces a rhema word, or the voice of the Holy Spirit,  is the FAITH OF GOD working in us.

The rhema word is a translation of God’s faith into a medium that we can discern, minister externally, and understand.

When we minister the rhema word we are ministering the faith that God Himself has.

Prophecy is God’s faith in the verbal expression of His rhema word, or the voice of the Holy Spirit.  Therefore, prophecy is faith, and must be given by faith.

Every spiritual gift is a manifestation of the faith of God. The more that we use them the more that we function in God’s faith.

7  Or ministry, (in the world of ministry) or he that teacheth, in the world of the teaching;

 8  Or he that exhorteth, in the world of exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Mystery (How We Must Minister)

 1 Cor 2:7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

We are uttering (PROPHETICALLY) God’s wisdom (WILL, WAYS & TIMING) in the sphere of a mystery or with a mystery.

We are dead, and our lives are hid in a mystery state with God.

Our walk in the Spirit allows us to understand the peculiars of the movements, dispositions, and plans of the Holy Spirit within us.  We cannot search out, the mysteries of God in us, but they are revealed by us as we walk in the Spirit.

As they are revealed through us knowledge and understanding is then given. This is called revelation.

We minister out of God’s mysteries within us because our lives now shrouded and hidden with Christ are hid with Him who Himself lives in a mystery form.

 1 Cor 2:13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Not taught in words of human wisdom, but comparing and compounding the spiritual things revealed by God in our spirits with appropriate outward spiritual forms and expressions. This is why Hoy Spirit manifestations are not just good, but important.

1 Cor 13:9  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

 Out of a portion we know, and out of that portion we must prophesy leading to more knowing and more prophecy. (From faith into faith).

This is why we must continually step out in faith by the voice of the Holy Spirit, because God functions from faith to faith.

 1 Cor 3:12  For now we see through a glass, darkly ( ainigma); but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

For we all see through a mirror reflecting an enigma.

Enigma: One that is puzzling, ambiguous, or inexplicable. 2. A perplexing speech or text; a riddle. The Free Dictionary

Ephesians 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

  Ephesians 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

 God’s labor, termed as grace takes from His inheritance in us, which is His fullness, reveals it from its mystery form and displays it in segments through us as His riches.

 1 Cor 12:6  And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

Different riches are manifested through the different operations of God.  The operations are effective displays of God’s power through the believer to effectively transfer the riches from inside the believer to the external world in accordance to the specific ministerial circumstances.

The transferred riches, which inside the believer were part of God’s inheritance, not empowered externally by the operations of God are made visible as the glory of God.

Christ’s grace or inward labor must display itself outwardly through the believer’s body as glory.

Praise to God is extracted by this revealed glory in the sphere of the saints.

8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

Wisdom has to do with God’s will, ways, and timing.  Prudence is carrying out this wisdom “in the Spirit.” God’s labor in us produces His will, His ways, and timing.  Prudence causes us to walk step by step in Christ’s labor.  This is termed to walk in the Spirit.

  Gal 5:25  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

  Walk is the word for a military march. If we claim to live in the Spirit, we are ordered to walk in a military march after the voice of the Holy Spirit.

The normal mode of God’s labor in us as we walk in prudence is to produce abundance and superabundance.

In proportion to how we follow Christ’s labor in us in wisdom and prudence is the same proportion we will live in the realm of  “SPIRITUAL AND SOMETIMES MATERIAL” abundance and superabundance.

This is the normal mode of God’s operation.

Modes of Holy Spirit Ministry


Modes of Ministry

To glance in the Spirit, not particularly with understanding, at what the Father does within us, gives us the ability to externally minister with identicalness to the Father’s work.

This is because ministry is initiated by faith without understanding.

Much ministry can be initiated with a spiritual glancing at what the Father does within us to allow us to minister it externally with identicalness.

John 5:9 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth (To habitually glance at what the Father does in the Spirit.  This is not discernment with understanding) the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. (Greek word “homos”)

Glancing in the Spirit to what the Father does, gives us that momentary instinctive knowledge, which on many occasions, is enough for us to step out in faith and do with identicalness what we have acquired instinctively in our spirits.

Our right to do so is based on the fact that we have an equal inner spiritual nature to that of the Father, giving us identity with Him in our outward actions.  We are responsible to work with identicalness to what we see on the Spirit.  This is what the term “homos” means.

Sometimes however, prophecy, and probably with more of the type, which involve visions, and of more detailed and intricate ministry, requires more than a simple glancing in the Spirit.  It requires spiritual vision with discernment, and understanding.

 John 8:38 I speak  (INSTRUMENTALITY: to utter and express prophetically (not the content of the speech)) that which I (What I) have seen ( To see with a spiritual discernment which causes me to understand) with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

Compare with John 3:11 below.

John 3:11  Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know (We utter prophetically what we know instinctively in the Spirit in one moments time, and not as needing the acquisition of knowledge in the continuum of time), and testify ( but however bear acquired knowledge as with a prophetic vision) that we have seen (only when we see with discernment and understanding); and ye receive not our witness.

John 5:17  But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto ( My Father never ceases working in the Spirit) and I work.(and I work externally, using exactly the same procedures and in exactly the same manner in which I see instinctively the Father working within me.)

For us to know by instinct or intuition, in one moment of time, what the Father speaks in us (without understanding what He is saying, and without having to get the message of what the Father wants to say first) is what we need to begin to open up our mouths and speak prophetically.

John 3:11  Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know (We utter prophetically what we know instinctively in the Spirit in one moments time, and not as needing the acquisition of knowledge in the continuum of time), and testify ( but however can only bear testimony as with a prophetic vision) that we have seen (only when we see with discernment and understanding); and ye receive not our witness.

·Simple prophecy does not need our understanding, but an instinctive knowing in our spirits of what the Father is doing.

However, to bear witness, as in seeing and explaining a detailed prophetic vision (in a sequence of pictures or details), we need to see in the Spirit with discernment and not just as a simple glancing.

Hearing the voice of the Spirit allows us to administer the kingdom step by step along the “continuum in time” of what we are hearing.

John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father, which hath sent me.

“Judging”, in the verse above is the administration of God’s kingdom in the Spirit.

Judging in the Spirit is also called discernment. Many times people erroneously say that we must not judge. We are called to judge or decide whether something lines up with the voice of the Spirit and discriminate whether it comes from the Spirit or not.

The judging which is wrong is to pass a condemnatory sentence upon somebody else, not on the discernment to what the voice of the Spirit is telling us but according to our opinions or biasness’s.

 Romans 12:6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion (Greek “corresponding to the word) of faith;(belonging to faith)

Prophecy is faith in one of its manifestation, this manifestation being in the “the word belonging to faith, or which is produced in the spirit as an expression of faith.

Faith, which produces a rhema word, is the FAITH OF GOD working in us.  The rhema word, or voice of the Spirit, is a translation of God’s faith into a medium that we can discern, minister externally, and understand.

When we minister the rhema word we are ministering the faith that God Himself has.

Prophecy is God’s faith in the verbal expression of His rhema word.  Therefore, prophecy is faith, and must be given by faith.

Prophecy therefore does not require our understanding, but a simple instinctive or intuitive knowing of the “corresponding word” (proportion of faith), which God by His faith, or God’s faith, produced in us.

To the proportion that we hear or see the word is to the proportion that we prophesy.

Degrees of ministry in the Spirit

1 John 1:1  That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

Heard,

Seen with discernment,

Looked upon, as watching a movie in a theater,

Felt, touched, and handled of the “Word of The Life” or the word which when ministered contains God’s “kind of life” and the operations of that life within it, to make the ministry operational.

 Eph 6:12  For we wrestle (arm to arm to arm encounters at close quarters) not against flesh and blood, but against ( Greek word for fellowship and communion; in this case hostile in nature) principalities, against (Greek word for fellowship and communion; in this case hostile in nature)  powers, against (Greek word for fellowship and communion; in this case hostile in nature)  the rulers of the darkness of this world, against (Greek word for fellowship and communion; in this case hostile in nature)  spiritual (must be handled in the Spirit)  wickedness in high places.( In spiritual places or must be handled by the Spirit of God in us)

Here we find that spiritual warfare must be always done at close quarters with the enemy, because it is a wrestling match. Because the wickedness is spiritual, it can only be combated in the Spirit. Likewise, because the spiritual wickedness dwells in heavenly places, it must be likewise executed in the Spirit.
