No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a solider – 2nd Timothy 2:4.
Our warfare is not against each other, but it’s against spiritual wickedness. In order for a soldier to conquer, he or she must have their armor on, our spiritual armor is being girded with truth, having on the breastplate of righteousness, our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, having the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. Prayer and fasting, binding and loosing the Word of God against every evil and wicked way.
The church which is the body of Christ needs to stand in the gap for those who cannot pray for themselves, it’s our spiritual duty as Christians to pray and fast and fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. We’re in a spiritual battle you cannot see with the natural eye; we as Christians need to return to fasting and praying and until we see the move of God setting the captive free.
Jesus may come at any time rather than focusing on the President and the “kry, kry” in the world, Christians should be focusing on the Word of God. We’re in the book of Revelation, the deaths, fires, hurricanes, and much more will be coming to fulfill the prophecy of the Bible of Jesus’ return. It’s time to win as many souls as we can by prayer, fasting, and our behavior as professing Christians. As Christians, we know the Bible speaks about hell, and we shouldn’t want anyone to go there. Pray in the Spirit, you don’t know who you would be praying for a detour of hell.
Many denominations criticize praying in tongues, but praying in tongues will pray exactly for what needs to be prayed about. The Holy Spirit will never pray against the will of God. Praying in the Spirit also builds your faith (But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost-Jude-Verse 20. The world is in need of warriors who will pray until the hands of God get involved with the situation. Pray until lives are transformed to submit to God’s written Word. Pray until the forces of hell recognized that God is still in control. One can’t pray in the Holy Ghost if the Spirit of God is not residing in them. This verse alone tells you there’s a way to pray without head knowledge, but by the Spirit that knows everything that needs to be prayed for.
All the disasters that are happening in the world’ people just think that it’s a coincidence; Satan is trying to kill as many as he can prior to them receiving salvation for them to be eternally lost from the presence of God and their resting place will be hell. Whether one believes there is a hell or not, it does not stop what God has made for those who reject His salvation by His Son, Jesus. This is not time to be thinking about what we can gain in this world when there is another world about to come on the scene that will be everlasting, and if our names aren’t written in the book of life, we will not be able to enter.
As we take time to pray, God will begin to give different things He wants us to pray for, He will give names and situations that need to be prayed for. The answer to the world’s problem is prayer and sincerity with God. Jesus is on His way back to take His bride, the body of Christ, sinners will not enter the kingdom, only those who believe and have submitted themselves to the written Word of God. Let’s pray until we are changed in our heart and spirit, pray until others have been changed to worship and serve God in the beauty of holiness.
