GOD'S ARMY FROM THE SPIRITUAL REALM
To be a part of the Army of God we must be adequately trained to operate in the supernatural realm. Why? Because we are dealing with spirits. Barry worked out the number of evil spirits we can put to flight when we pray as we were taught the week before last. Based on the Biblical formula, "one can put a thousand to flight and two put ten thousand to flight", then just 18 of us, praying in one accord, could put 100 quintillion to flight! Ponder this! we, through the weapon of prayer alone, can bind in fetters of iron 100 quintillion demons that are corrupting, destroying, defeating and ruining the health of all creation including man. We can loose the assignments they have already put on creation to start a reversal, giving us, along with the planet, a chance to regenerate. Hell could be added to, and earth be diminished of, this much evil, 100,000,000,000,000,000,000, in one night of united prayer by our little people alone! Do you understand now why the Devil tries so hard to make you a critical person that sees everyone else's faults? We can only do this if united. You can also see why the enemy causes friction between the family? He wants you to stay immature, soulish, thinking, lawless, fault-finding and self-centered, causing division and discord. He especially wants you to come against leadership so the Body of Christ has no direction, is out of harmony, powerless and therefore unable to bring defeat to his army.
WALK IN THE SPIRIT FOR VICTORY
In the realm of the soul we are all a long way from perfection. If our spirits were allowed to be in control however, we could right this realm quickly, restore the animal kingdom, and bring man back to the condition of Adam and Eve before the fall! We keep making mistakes however to the degree our body is governed by our soul man.
Thankfully God had a plan to deliver us from ourselves. Even though we make mistakes, we are still able to be perfect in the spirit realm, that is, if we repent. Jesus made this all possible when He paid the penalty of death for our past sins. The blood of our Passover Lamb covers every sin we ever will commit as well. Positionally Christ defeated every enemy. He made possible the reversal of their assignments that come upon earth with their evil intrusion of our planet, including death, by His death and resurrection on the cross. So, a not so nice person, at least in your opinion, can be a very vital part of the battle that is going on in the heavenlies, because their spirit is made holy and righteous through the blood of Christ. If you are not in leadership, you are not equipped to see when people walk in repentance, so you are looking at your brothers and sisters through soulish eyes and judging them through your intellect. People of God, don' be fooled by the enemy! You are sitting in the seat of the scornful against those the blood of Christ covers, and manifesting the accuser of the brethren against God's family! Therefore, by spiritual principle, you are causing division, especially if your opinion is voiced to others. The Devil loves it. If 18 people were praying unitedly against him, now there is only 17. If the one you voiced your opinion to agrees with you, there is now only 16. If the brother or sister you criticized finds out, then there may only be 15 left! See the loss to God's Kingdom, to God's army? All because you didn' walk in the spirit where you could see the Christ within the one you faulted. You were led by your soul man tainted by Satan. Such a loss of power! The power Christ died for, that we were meant to have and utilize to fight for the restoration of all creation and humanity!
Again, your soul sees the fleshly acts and therefore the faults of God's family. Your spirit could not see evil or flesh unless chosen by God to be leadership. What do I mean by this? Think on this: Adam and Eve, the perfect pair that had dominion over all, could not see their naked flesh before the fall, but God, who is a spirit, saw their nakedness.
Hebrews 4:13 tells us:
13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
His government, those placed in authority over the body, address fleshly soulish acts through direction from God and their spirit's eye of discernment as an extension of heaven's rule. God fathers this planet and all on it through them. Unite with them, not against them! Learn to walk guided by your spirit that is connected to the mind of Christ so your soul does not cause your body or flesh to short-circuit the power of God. All creation waits for the children of God that can see this truth and learn to walk it out. Be messengers of peace and love to the world (be no part of it), let the Spirit of love dwell and rule from your heart towards the brethren (so you are united). Love conquers all and we want victory.
Galatians 5:15-16 warns:
15 But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!
16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
Galatians 6:8-9 says what can happen to you.
8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.
This next verse is to the old warriors:
9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
For those of you that have just recently joined God's Army, isn' it good news that you don' have to be old mature people of God to walk and live through your spirits and be victorious. You just have to be yielded to God's Spirit, dead to your soul man, and have the faith to believe in God's ability to communicate with you and through you. You see, when you were born through God, your spirit came alive bearing the fruit of the nature of the Father as seen at Galatians 5:22-23.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
You can no longer be bound by depression, hatred, unforgiveness etc. Your outward personality will begin to change. No physical law can bind you, nor will any spiritual law ever harm you, if you learn to walk in repentance and yield to the leading of the Spirit.
FILED WITH THE SPIRIT
When you became filled with the Holy Spirit, He gave you nine wonderful gifts as seen in I Corinthians 12:8-10 just so you could live successfully in His Kingdom as one of His children. He made it possible for you to do the things Jesus did when He walked this planet.
1 Corinthians 12:8-10 shows us these gifts.
8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,
9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,
10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
Three of the gifts are revelatory, giving you the ability to receive knowledge, wisdom and have discernment straight from the mind of God. They are Word of Knowledge, Word of Wisdom and Discerning of Spirits. Three more are bestowed upon you to enable you to communicate with God, not only for yourselves, but you can hear your Father's voice for others as well. These gifts are tongues, interpretation of tongues and prophecy. The last three gifts you are given allow you to operate in the power of your Father, because you wear His name and are on His side as part of His family. They are healing, faith and miracles. So when the Holy Spirit dwells in you, Wisdom finds her home in your spirit and heart through the revelatory gifts, through the communication gifts, Jesus lives in you and, through the power gifts, the Almighty dwells within. The fullness of the Godhead lives in you as well as in each member of His family! United, we are an awesome army. We are the House of Israel, Abraham's seed.
FROM PHYSICAL ABILITIES TO THE SPIRITUAL
In the first part of boot camp you learned about God's Army. Now if you can look at prayer and praise as your weapons of war, and the gifts as your supernatural ability to function, we will in the next part of boot camp sharpen your abilities so you can use your weapons more effectively against the enemies of our Father's Kingdom.
