In Leviticus God gave man every spiritual law imaginable to preserve him from sin and to restore and maintain everything pertaining to him both physically and spiritually. For sure everything had to be ceremonially clean, purified, and sanctified before it could be used in worship. Although we are certainly not under the law for the our salvation today, it is still our Father's heart for us to be, not just righteous through the blood of the Lamb, but clean vessels set aside or sanctified for His use. Satan on the other hand, brings his unclean spirits into our lives and thumbs his nose at God. He especially uses God's people as his puppets to keep the planet and all on it, physically filthy, and makes a mockery of worship through morally unclean ministers. We do however have the opportunity to fight back. How? Number one, we must know who we are so we understand the authority we have in Jesus over the enemy. If we are baptized into Christ properly, we are Abraham's seed. Makes no difference what our nationality or gender is. We are all God's family and heirs, not only of salvation according to the new covenant, but through the new covenant, we are also eligible for the promises in the Abrahamic covenant as well. We are the double blessed!
28 There is neitherJew nor Greek, there is neitherslave nor free, there is neithermale nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Heirs to what or of what?)
God reveals the promise in Romans 4:13. We see, as Abraham's seed we are heirs of the world, because of the blessings in these covenants, and the righteousness of our faith. Is this not exciting?
13 For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abrahamor to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
If you come into possession of something (in this case the world) don't you usually take care of it, and if it's used, clean it up? How blinded we've been to these blessings, and how controlled we are and in bondage to Satan's evil forces. Because of the fruit of evil spirits operating through us, all of creation also pays the price. Animals and people are abused and themselves are abusive. People hate church and blame God for the immorality and filth of today's religious institutions. The land mourns, paper, tin cans, all of America runs on cold drinks and the earth is their trashcan. I'm sure there are problems in other countries with the unclean spirit. Look also at how this ungodly spirit affects our dress. How cool we think it is to buy old, dirty looking jeans and pay 50 to 100 dollars for them with holes in them on top of that! Trendy is what we and the evil unclean forces that influenced us call it. What does God call it? The priest's robes, very symbolic of today, were not made by Abercrombie and Fitch. When their wardrobes became old it was used for lamp wicks and replaced. Only the best for the Lord. Where are our minds? Very clouded and badly tainted by the knowledge from the Tree of Good and Evil, I'm afraid. God says He will make all things new! He will refurbish, restore, repair and even create the new if necessary. He will not accomplish this through the mentality of Adam however, as they hopelessly only think through the intellect Eve chose for them in the beginning which makes them easy targets of Satan. But, for those born again, we are new creatures, Abraham's seed, meant to restore, renew, set free, clean up! All creation waits eagerly for us to catch this. A new heaven and new earth will begin to manifest if we will, as God's family all over the world, do our part. Let us declare war on the evil hosts of darkness that have been running this planet through us.
Ephesians 6:12tells us plainly who they are.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places(between the ozone and earth, the atmosphere).
Instead of obeying evil spirits, let us allow the Holy Spirit to stir the laws in our hearts for direction, fill us with the gifting to recognize the enemy as they use us, and through His name, give us the power to overcome them. Jude quoted from Enoch, the 7th from Adam, in verse 14 of the Book of Jude, so I would like to take the liberty to quote from the Book of Enoch, the 7th from Adam as well. It will help us grasp a better understanding of these unseen evil forces that so affect us and all pertaining to us.
6 But you(angels) were formerly spiritual(angels), living the eternal life, and immortal for all generations of the world.
7 And therefore I have notappointed wives for you; for as for the spiritual ones of the heaven, inheaven is their dwelling(so if the angels were created to dwell in heaven, why does man think he should go there?).
8 And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh(sexual relationships between Angels and humanity), shall be calledevil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling.
9 Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies(they were born through mankind); because they are born from men, and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. (Ephesians 6)
10 As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling. (The offspring of the cross between the daughters of man and the angels were born here, so they like man must remain here.)
11 And the spirits of the giantsafflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offenses. (Because they use our vessels to satisfy their hunger and thirst. They need a physical body to interact.)
12 And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them. (This is why God made the husband the spiritual covering in the personal family. See teaching on "House Priest".)
We see reference to this interaction between the angels and man in Genesis 6, but let us look just at 1 and 2 for convenience sake, and Jude verse 6 as well.
1 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them,
2 that the sons of God(the angels)saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of allwhom they chose.
6 And the angelswho did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;
As a side note: In lieu of Psalm 115:16 and Jude 1:6, what do you think happens to people that teach we go to heaven in the quote unquote rapture, or that it is our home after death? Does the God that says the heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth He has given to man, get angry? Will they therefore meet with the same fate as the angels that were not satisfied with their domain? It is particularly this mentality that also causes man to not care about the planet God gave as our home and instructed us to care for. Spirit of error has had a heyday so to speak in the church with these false doctrines.
Remember, I'm trying to not only show you where the enemy at Ephesians 6 came from, but how they are responsible for every wrong act on our planet. They make us unclean, as we mentioned earlier, to satisfy their filthy nature. They have the appetites of giants, so they cause us to over drink, overeat, become addicts. As we read, they are full of lust and perversion, and being spirits, they have to have bodies to inhabit to satisfy their desires. We were originally created as spiritual beings in the image of God and given a bodysuit to adapt us to live on this earth. These evil spirits are confined to this earth also, but do not have bodies to live in. We were complete before the fall of Adam. We were a spirit, that had a soul (or it's own nature and will), and we lived in a body. The spirit governed the soul, and the body reacted as told. The spirit had direct access to God, but if they chose advice or counsel from someone else, that was their choice. God did not create them as puppets, and Adam and Eve chose advice from the very being that caused all the above trouble! All of us, their descendants, "think" just like them today. As their spirit man died they were no longer connected to God, so their soul was taken captive and governed by the spirit of Satan. Their bodysuit was now naked also, because their spiritual clothing, robes of righteousness and separation, fell to the ground with the death of the spirit. The evil spirits quickly saw this. Now they were completely vulnerable to be attacked by the evil forces of Satan. Spirits of infirmity, ending in death and corruption entered their lives and became the fate of all descendants of Adam today. Can you see why people are dying, the world is so upside down and its society out of kilter? All has evolved through people guided by their tainted intellect and an unseen evil community of spirits. Thankfully the Father had a plan to save those that seek Him or all would be lost.
3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (The descendants of Adam cannotsee or understand the Kingdom, so we must become something else.)
The rest of the plan was prophesied atIsaiah 61:1-3.
1 "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me (Jesus), because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives(those captive to this realm), and the opening of the prison to those who are bound(to spirits of addiction, lust, perversion, lying, stealing etc.);
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn,
3 To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." (Not related to the Tree of Good and Evil.)
Jesus is performing this same ministry today through His deliverance ministers. If we are born again, and we have experienced this ministry, we are well able to restore our planet to God's Kingdom. We can possess the land because our Father gave it to us.
Isaiah 61:4goes on to say,
4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations. (They shall!)
In verses 5 through 7 we see the restoration of the Lord's leadership, His government, His economy and covenants.
5 Strangersshallstand and feed your flocks(Adam will serve Abraham's seed), and the sons of the foreignershall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. (People of the nations.)
6 But youshallbe named the priests of the LORD(the government of God will be restored), they shall call you the servants of our God. Youshalleat the riches of the Gentiles(God's economy will be restored), and in their glory you shall boast.
7 Instead of your shame you shall have double honor(the two covenants), and instead of confusion(about what is ours)theyshallrejoice in their portion. Therefore in their landtheyshallpossess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs(eternally)
Let us close on these wonderful promises found in verse 9.
9 Their descendants (Abraham's seed) shall be known among the Gentiles (Adam), and theiroffspringamong the people. All who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the posterity whom the LORD has blessed."
