Knowledge is power

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:

satan wants us dumb. I know that’s a strong statement but its true. he hates wisdom in the life of a Christian.

he doesn’t mind us jumping, screaming, hooping, hollering and running all over the church.
But he can’t stand when we sit down somewhere and learn the word of God. he doesn’t even really mind when we get born again as long as we remain ignorant and ineffective.

We are dangerous when we have knowledge and even more so when we have understanding. There is power released to us when we have the knowledge of God’s word operating in our lives. There is supernatural assistance available to us when we have the understanding of that word activated in our lives.

Have you ever noticed how the enemy will fight you on reading the word? You sit down to read it and can’t concentrate. Can’t focus. The phone will ring. Children start acting up. The dog will have to go out. Or you get sleepy. Etc. etc. etc.

That is spiritual warfare. In those moments when you recognize it, stop and bind the strong man!!!
When we take down the strong man all the others will flee. So often we start with the lesser and the strong man is left operating. So we continue fighting. Getting worn out. Cut the head off and the body will die.( I don’t have time to get into that at this moment, I’ll have to come back to this in another blog post)

Mark 3:27
No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

Matthew 12:29
Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

It’s crucial that we begin to do this step. Because as we get into the word of God we enter into the presence of God. When we are in His presence we are hidden. The enemy can’t locate us or trace us. Also in His presence we are made whole. Healing and deliverance begin to manifest in the life of a believer who has been in the presence of Almighty God. Not only deliverance, healing and restoration for you but for your whole house.

The enemy can’t afford to have whole Christians.That would bring down his kingdom. So he fights to keep us broken, sick,weak, tired, worn out and defeated. But the devil is a lie.

I pray now that a spark be lit in you so that you’ll begin to crave the word of God! I pray now that you will begin to hunger and thirst after Him. I pray now that the atmosphere around you will shift and that the fire of God would fall bringing with it a new appetite for all things God. In Jesus name.

There is a lost and dying world that’s waiting on us, the body, to bring preach Jesus. But first we’ve got to KNOW Him ourselves. It’s time to believe the BIBLE. It’s time to operate and function on the level to which we were created.

Romans 8:19
For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

Romans 8:22
For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
