THE FATHER’S JOY IN FACING EVIL

We are in a protracted battle that is not ending any time soon. We are facing things many of us never thought possible. Not only is our nation in massive turmoil and chaos, spiritual forces are pressing upon believers and we need to gird ourselves for the days ahead.

But, instead of dreading the future and fearing the worst, the Father has something else in mind – totally. If we catch this revelation and embrace His commission, we could literally turn the world upside down:

Do you know where I’m leading you?
Do you understand what it is I am perfecting within you?
Do you fear what lies ahead or do you comprehend the joy that awaits you?

You know I laugh at the enemy. You know I am not moved by his devices, plots, and tantrums. You know that his presence and practices have no hold on me and no effect on my purposes – and this is what frustrates him. Even that which he does to trick and deceive you, I turn around for your good and his shame.

Yes, I know the triumph of victory over his little mind and his limited plans. This is the very thing I want for YOU to know and experience. For the very thing he has been trying to trap you in – fear and hopelessness – is the very thing that I use to raise up a people of unmatched faith, courage, and boldness.

It is my desire that you know the same joy I have in seeing him as he really is. It is my delight that you walk in my gladness and joy of Kingdom authority, recognizing that the imps and trolls who pose as giants are, in fact, merely insects. Yes, the fallen one will continue to wreak havoc and vandalize the earth with his devilish tirades. But, you must not let his disruptions keep you from rising higher, above the earth realm where you have full authority over his reign of terror. Do not become attached to the temporal – to that which does not exist in the higher realms – for he will infect them and sink his hooks deep into your soul, draining you of all faith and hope in my providence. You must fix your attention on that which is eternal and let ME be your source of provision and security.

You will be shocked in the coming days as to the ruthless nature of your enemy. Your mind will struggle to comprehend the wickedness that has been simmering and the vengeance that has been fermenting for generations. This satan’s pride and jealousy knows no bounds and he is utterly desperate to prove his ability to torment and terrorize.

AND YET – the reason I allow him room is so that YOU will know the same joy of victory that I possess. I want you to understand the power of My throne and the absolute confidence that comes in using the scepter I have given you. For my Kingdom is one of laughter and fullness of joy. NO power can usurp My throne and no enemy can match the infinite expanse of my reign and rule.*

THIS is what I am molding and shaping within your hearts and minds in these days of trouble and chaos. THIS is what is being formed from the inside out. And this is what the enemy cannot fathom or comprehend.

My joy does not come by escaping evil.
My joy is perfected in the midst of it.

*Psalms 52:1-7

(Scroll to the bottom for a video clip of me releasing this word this past Sunday in our corporate worship.)

2 Comments on THE FATHER’S JOY IN FACING EVIL

  1. LOL – just b4 reverting back to this post I’d been checking Matt 7:22 on the false prophets in connection with an appalling post on a ‘prophecy’ site here in UK!!

  2. Christians must now come together, and work for the liberation of America centring on God’s purpose and ideal of creation. There is Satan’s will and God’s Will. We can clearly see Satan’s will in the world now and all throughout history, because till now God’s Will has not been realised, which is the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Jesus said, “Seek first God’s Kingdom and His Righteousness and then all these things will be added unto you”. This means we have to put God first, His Will, His Plan and His Kingdom. In other words, who are we going to serve? God or Satan.

    A house divided can not stand. Are Christians united? Is God’s House (therefore America) united as we look at all the different Christian denominations and ask ourselves are Christians following Jesus’ teachings when Jesus called for the unity of his followers as in his prayer in John 17:20-23 and when crying out to Jerusalem saying ‘how many times would he gather the people together as a hen her brood but they would not’ (respond, listen), as throughout Israel’s whole history, the people repeatedly disobeyed God’s Commandments and Statutes.

    How are Christians faring on this front. Not so well. That is why Jesus said, “Not all who say Lord Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven but those who are doing the will of my Father in Heaven…Depart from me you evildoers”. Mt 7:21-23.

    The bottom line is unity. God is seeking unity with Him, with one another and with His Will:

    Psalm 133 “Behold how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head running down upon the beard of Aaron”.

    Christianity is in a state of crisis and sin, because that unity God wants and Jesus called for does not exist, hence Jesus saying “Love one another as I have loved you”. “No greater love has a man than to lay down his life for a friend” and even, “Love your enemy”. Jesus set the example saying, “the son of man did not come to serve but to be served”. Mt 20:28, Jn 13:1-17

    To create a child, a man and woman must come together, unite in sexual union, to create a new life. For Christians and humanity to move forward, they must come together in unity to create ‘new life’, a new beginning and a new history for not only America but the world. If we don’t do that, Jesus may well say, “Depart from me you evildoers, you did not go about my Father’s business, but your own. My Father’s business is Kingdom building”. (An interesting aside. What business was Donald Trump and his father involved in?)

    To build a wall, bricks must be mortared together for strength and to provide protection. They are bonded together to form a unity of bricks, hence a wall. Each Christian is an individual brick that must be bonded together with another ‘brick’ through true love to form a ‘wall’, a unified front for strength and protection and to also go into being part of God’s great building project, His House, the Kingdom of Heaven.

    That is how we become members and part of God’s Kingdom and His body, when we unite together in true love, forming unbreakable bonds of love like two atoms coming together to form a molecule.

    ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is in the midst of us’, within the unity of all those ‘bricks’.

    It is almost 40 days since Easter Sunday. 40 representing a period of purification, plus ten days representing completion or perfection. That being Pentecost.

    God is wanting to make a new beginning for America and the world. The Pentecost this year for Christians and everyone is that new beginning, the Genesis for God’s Kingdom to come.

    Everyone must play their part and begin by repenting for not keeping the ‘Two Great Commandments’ and not going about their Father’s business as good stewards of the land God gave to us.

    After the 40 day Flood Judgment there should have been a new beginning, as God re-instated the Three Great Blessings as he did initially with Adam:

    Gen 9:1 “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth”.

    Now Christians in this time period of 40 days plus ten must come together, repent and seek God’s Kingdom in earnest as Jesus said on beginning his ministry:

    “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand”, and it begins in the midst of you without signs to be observed, like a small mustard seed, hardly noticeable but grows into a large tree where many birds will make their home.

    We have to be looking inwardly not outwardly for the Kingdom of Heaven. Remember what Jesus said to the Scribes and Pharisees:

    Mt 12:38 “Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.” 39 But he answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign; but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nin′eveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here. 42 The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here”.
    Refer also Jonah 3

    Man must always make the condition through repentance and obedience to God’s Word, for God’s will to be accomplished, as was so for Adam and Eve to have kept God’s Commandment.

    Adam and Eve ‘fell with bitter tears’ knowing they had spiritually died having lost their relationship with their Father God. Therefore fallen man must come back to God with tears of repentance, and this time cling to God’s Word, the Word Adam and Eve rejected.

    Christianity as a religion, as the Second Israel must repent, if it wants to see in God’s Kingdom. Failure to do so is not an option.
