Our true enemy is that which is of the spiritual realm. Lucifer and his clan are the real enemy we are at war with. All of humanity is at war with them, although some people do not recognize it because of the deception they are ignorant and blind to. When the people who have been blinded to the truth of the enemy's deception fall prey to becoming pawns to Lucifer's agenda they too can appear as the enemy in which we are at war with but the reality is, our true enemy is merely infiltrating the heart and mind of that person/people and they have become the unknowing victim of the enemy. This is why the Lord instructs us to love and pray for our enemies. He's not referring to our spiritual enemy in this context, but rather, those people who appear to be and do 'behave' as an enemy to us. Rather than cursing them with the words of our mouth, we should fervently pray for them to receive deliverance from the bondage of the evil one.
As one body in Christ Jesus, our prayers are powerful. What if we would decide to unite in prayer, genuine heartfelt prayer for the deliverance from satanic bondage of those people, leaders, and government officials who have seemingly become our so-called enemies and for them to receive the salvation of Jesus Christ? Is it not the Lord's will that NONE should perish? 2 Peter 3:9 "The Lord does not delay in His promises as men consider delay, but He is long-suffering because of you, in that He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but rather everyone should come to repentance." Therefore, should it not be our will also that they not perish but rather come into repentance?
In this age of technology and communication it's so easy to find information on almost anything you might want to know about. Particularly, in this unusual time we're currently in, so many people are searching for answers right and left and I see those answers being generously supplied from all sorts of different sources. Interestingly enough, both sources (good and evil) are providing prophecies which are saying very similar things. That can become confusing because if the dark side is saying this is what is going to happen and so is the Holy Spirit, how then do we know what to trust and how to understand what's God's will and what's not?
There was a time when I was immature in understanding the prophetic and believed that anything that was being prophesied (via Holy Spirit) to take place must be God's will because after all, He said it would happen. I'm not saying that I have the prophetic and God's will all figured out perfectly, because I'm not even close to that, but I do have a better understanding now than what I did then.
What I have learned over the course of many, many years in the prophetic is that God will speak to us about what's to come for various reasons. It's our responsibility to seek His heart out in the matter to know whether what He has revealed to us is His will or simply a disclosure of what's to come if we don't turn (change our mind and behaviors/decisions) and go in a different direction.
The Lord may choose to give us a head's up about what is to come in order that we may be well prepared, and/or expectant. He may choose to tell us of a blessing He wants to give to us so that we will begin to believe for it and make choices leading us into that direction. And, sometimes He tells us of what might lay ahead so that we can pray for a different outcome and intentionally steer clear of decisions leading to that particular consequence. In all scenarios, His desire is for us to seek His heart and will rather than, running aimlessly on our own limited understanding and logic.
Lucifer is also always revealing his plans but for different reasons. He does it because he's full of pride and arrogance. He wants to flaunt what he's up to, even when it brings his own demise, because he's wise in his own eyes and yet lacks true wisdom.
Yes, God will also reveal to us the plan of enemy so as to us not being ignorant and therefore falling into the trap of the enemy's deceptive tactics.
God is our Father, who is perfect in all His ways, and He is good. Just as we would caution our children to stop and look before crossing a street, not for the purpose of creating a fear of vehicles or a fear of stepping into the street, but for the purpose of instilling knowledge, wisdom and preparation for safety. It's much in this same way, God will caution us to stop and look with our spiritual eyes, ears and understanding before stepping out into our decisions.
Above and beyond what you see and hear in the natural, look and listen to and most importantly, trust in what God is telling you in the secret place of your heart.
John 10:10 "A thief does not come, except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and they may have that which is abundant."
Abundant blessing to you and your household,
