I always begin my prayer time with meditation, and as I begin to approach the throne this morning the Lord just bought some things to my attention. You know there are two types of seed in the land. The seed of Cain and the seed of Abel.
The children of Cain naturally have of this world what belongs to them, it comes easy, because they are of it. While the seed of Abel has to fight for what belongs to them in this world. These two though they were sons of Adam and Eve are types of what is good and evil.
You see….. God said to Joshua his servant that,”every place that the sole of your feet tread upon, I have given unto you, just as I promised to Moses.” (Joshua 1:3) He was talking to Israel, and what are we if not spiritual Israel? Joshua was preparing for war. He was preparing to fight for the blessings of Canaan! If the natural children had to fight, how much more should we be prepared to battle for what God has given us?
I know eyebrows are arched right about know, but let me go on to explain because I hear the voice of someone saying the Bible also says, “The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof.” (Psalm 24:1) It is…..everything belongs to God, but when he (God) kicked satan out of heaven, he fell down to the earth. (Isaiah 14:12-14) The scriptures also says that satan is the ruler of this World! It calls him the prince of the power of the air. (Ephesians 2:2)
That does not mean that he has power over God or the children of God….God is Sovereign (2 Corinthians 4:4) and because we serve God, satan only has the amount of earthly control that God has released to him for a season.
We are not of the world, but in it. We are strangers in this land traveling through. If we are not of the world but in it, does it not make since for the prince of the air to try and make life difficult,or for us to have to fight for what God has for us. Listen my friend…..we know that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood. but against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)
It is common knowledge satan is the enemy of God, therefore he will make nothing easy for us the children of God except to use his devices to tempt us, Amen. The Kingdom of heaven suffers violence because your adversary is violently attacking the kingdom, but we know that we win in the end, so fight!! Put on your war clothes and go to WAR!! If God says he has given it to us, that settles it! 🙂
