90 Days Global Matthew 6:10 Prayers – Day 9 of 90 – October 9th, 2020
Fight the good fight of faith – Prophecy is not for information but for enforcement in warfare
Friends, welcome to another day of waiting on the Lord as we enforce the predetermined counsel of God in the earthly realm between the last 3 months of the year 2020 to cover 2021, 2022, 2023 and beyond, as the Lord tarries in coming, because the next 3 years and 3 months are crucial in the prophetic calendar and we cannot afford to sit at ease in Zion when spiritual bullets are flying over our heads and Gods agenda hangs in the balance of delays.
This morning, I want to motivate you to join in because those that wait upon the Lord will increase in strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, the shall run and not go weary and they shall walk and not faint Isaiah 40:31
The times we are getting into or already in requires reserve energy to content earnestly for the faith.
Paul in admonishing Timothy in 6:12 told him to fight the good fight of faith.
What does it mean to fight the good fight of faith when Timothy has already become a Christian through salvation in Christ and already actively involved in the work of the gospel?
Unlike Timothy, most of us are Christians in the head and not at heart and we have this notion that once we receive Christ, all is sweet bye and bye.
We have become bread and butter Christians, marking registers every Sunday and we think all is OK. We think the art of strategic warfare is for a few chosen fanatics who have nothing to do with their time and are built to sacrifice for others while we live our carefree and careless lives.
I come to announce to us all that the day we became Christians is the day our battles actually began because we have by default sent signals to everyone both physically and spiritually that we have taken a stand and we are now enlisted in a spiritual strike force that is meant to enforce Gods heart, Gods design and God’s agenda in the earthly realm.
When we become Christians, we are saying by default that we are available, send us to pull men, women, children, young and old to align with divine mandate here on earth. We are saying the devil is our enemy and the devil marks us out as his enemy.
It is good to have prayer team for some level of division of labour in the body of Christ but the fight we are talking about today is a personal fight just as our salvation is a personal thing, so also is accountability to stay in that faith is a personal fight.
Daddy and mummy can lead the way but at the end of the day, it is a personal fight..
Adam, sold the earthly realm out to Satan by submitting to Satan in disobedience. From that day, man became a slave of Satan until Jesus showed up to take back that key and He has given us that key to occupy, enforce and take back that which was lost. Enforcing God’s counsel on the earthly realm. Nothing happens until we enforce, we show that it is worth the fight to pull down God’s desire in all sphere of the earthly realm. If we do nothing, then nothing happens- introducing unnecessary delays with casualties in soul been lost to the kingdom of darkness.
To fight the good fight of faith means to remain true to God and His word even in the face of opposition, oppression, and adversity. It means to have an unswerving allegiance to the cause of God amid hostilities both internally- the church and externally- the world and the master spirit that control the cause of events in the earth realm.
To buttress this point on the need to fight the good fight of faith, Hear what Jesus said in
Revelation 3:21 ‘He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
If Jesus is talking to His Church, it means these are people like us who have given their lives to Him. So, the overcoming Jesus is talking about has nothing to do with salvation. It is about fighting the good fight of faith to advance, enforce and maintain gained ground, because all power is already His and now handed to us to call forth the cause of the kingdom of God as determined already in heaven.
1 John 3:8 For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Jesus has handed that mandate to every christian to enforce.
To drum this home, let’s look at the following scriptures broken down in 3 parts and you see sequences occurring as follows:
1) Genesis 15:13-16; Exodus 2:23-25; Exodus 12:40-41
2) Jeremiah 29:10; Daniel 9:2-3,19,22; Daniel 10:10-21
And the third set is
3) Isaiah 7:14 ; Luke 2:25-40
In these three sets of scriptures, you will see how God said something and it did not happen at the determined time as foretold because of the interplay of God’s agenda, Human hunger for what God has said and Satan’s intent in contending for what God wants done in the earth realm and why we must war to bring it pass because we have a perfect God, who desires good plans and already set in motion what He wants done.
We live in an imperfect world where wickedness keeps enforcing demonic stronghold on the earth and we see people who needs God’s intervention, who are careless about what God wants to do, except for some remnants who are willing to fight the good fight of faith.
Some remnants have gotten some advance ammunition through the word of prophecy about what God wants and are saying to God, “Here we are, send us.”
In the first sets of texts, God, in signing a covenant with Abraham, foretold to Abraham that 400 years, his descendants will be slaves in a foreign land and at the end of the 400 years, He will bring them out.
400 years came and passed, persecution started and Abraham descendants cried out to God and we hear that God remembered His covenant with Abraham and began to do something about it and sent Moses to get them.
They came out in the 430th year. Why the long 30 years delay? We know there was a third force at play through Pharaoh who wanted that divine counsel to be aborted.
Satan worked through Pharaoh but God always has an advance plan in place because Satan is a created being.
The second set of texts talked about the prophecy given by Jeremiah the prophet that for 70 years, the children of Israel were to suffer as slaves in the hands of the Babylonians.
70 years came and passed, nothing happened. Until Daniel took the initiative to seek Gods intervention in a 21 days fast. At the end of the 21 days, an angel shows up, telling Daniel that from the first day of his fast, he was dispatched from heaven to provide Daniel an answer to his petition and that the demonic entity over Babylon well not allow him yo deliver the message until another warrior angel came for backup.. after delivering part of the message, he went back to battle the demonic entity again.
We might say, OK that is old testament. Let see the third set of texts
In this set, Isaiah foretold the coming of the Messiah to deliver mankind, it took Anna and Simeon in the new testament to intercede for the promise to take place. When Jesus eventually came, Satan tried using Herod to abort the plan. Jesus had to be taken to Africa for a time and returned to fulfill purpose..
When a word of prophecy is given, we are given God’s kingdom agenda, or desire for that particular circumstance so that as kingdom enforcers, just like Jesus, we war in the spirit to call forth into the physical realm what the mind of God is..
Africa has a great prophecy for the end times hence the relentless demonic attack against her people..
African people worldwide are to usher in the great end time worldwide revival and if we sit down eating bread and butter, criticizing and living careless and carefree lives, that will not happen on time. And if it does not happen on time, more souls will end up in hell because revival is not just to revive us but more importantly to get us involved with the Holy Spirit in drawing souls to the kingdom before the chief Antichrist is unleased.
Anything can happen anytime but we have a strategic part to play…
All you have to say is to call down God’s agenda upon your life, your family, the church, your nation and the world that will orchestrate the move of God worldwide because the clock is ticking and the destiny of souls hangs in the balance of time.. People are dying and not returning. Once dead an unbeliever, judgement is by default already passed for those souls and remember, every soul is precious to God, every soul is a great asset to God and our decision and their decision determines what happen now and in all eternity.
As you make a decision today for Christ, or to enlist in the strike force, read these set of verses meditatively:
Hebrews 9:27-28King James Version 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
English Standard Version
The Message of Salvation to All
5 For Moses writes about the righteousness that is based on the law, that the person who does the commandments shall live by them. 6 But the righteousness based on faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down) 7 “or ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); 9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. 11 For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him.
And finally this
English Standard Version
Isaiah’s Commission from the Lord
8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”
May He receive you and your confession today as you take action because you love God and love people in Jesus name, amen
