THE LAST HOUR -BE STRONG IN THE LORD

Dec 10, 2023

Ephesians 6:10-12 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole ARMOR OF GOD, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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.]

The strength referred to in this scripture, is for the brethren who are in the Lord.

When you find God and interact with Him as Lord (His Honor), He then gives you an armor that He keeps advancing as you journey with Him. This armor is the ability He gives you to execute His agenda on earth.

When God has clothed you with His armor, satan can only attempt to attack you but can never penetrate where the armor of God is.

When you receive Christ Jesus (get born again), God begins to do good work in you. However, it is when you have attained sufficient experience knowing Him, that He sends you to contend with the principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age and spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places according to the rank of the armor He has clothed you with. 

Revelation 12:1-12

There are many heavenly places but the heaven referred to here is God’s administration. This heaven is only accessed by those who have Jesus Christ in them.

Satan knew that nobody would vote him into rulership and the only way he could stop the child that was to rule over all the nations, was to devour Him. That was his agenda(the great dragon’s agenda)

As a believer, you need to understand that satan is not after material things, all he wants is a place where he can dwell and execute his agenda.

Satan fell with four abilities: the ability to mount on wings like an eagle, appear as a roaring lion, a man and an ox. He also imitated the pattern of Jesus; He disciples people and then baptizes them into false apostles to establish his agenda on earth. 2 Corinthians 11:13

Satan doesn’t appear to us as a dragon but as a man. There are men who have willed or chosen to be the face of satan just like Judas, Herod and Nimrod were the faces of Satan. What is the face of satan in your time?

There are men around you who have been designed to cut you off from the heavenly agenda. That’s why you need to align yourself, pray and ask God to help you, so that you may not be held by what Satan is in your generation.

The people of God; The first church (not Mary) were going to give birth to Yahweh who was going to rule over all the nations. That’s why the dragon was after them.

When the woman gave birth to Christ, Christ gave birth to the ecclesia. Therefore, If Satan wants to attack God, he attacks the ecclesia. However, God has given us tools to overcome; the blood and the testimony of His Word in our hearts (Revelation 12:11).

1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the ANTICHRIST is coming, even now many ANTICHRISTS have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.

Like Jesus gave birth to the ecclesia, Satan has also given birth to an offspring of his kind the (antichrist).

We are at a critical decision point and must choose either Christ or self. If we choose the wrong side, we will suffer for long and the anger of God will descend upon those who disobey and they will not recover. It is Christ or nothing!

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
