This word came about by a picture I had in the night of a black background with a rainbow painted over it. It is a picture of hope and the promise of God to overrule and overlay all that is in darkness. The word came about by listening to a man of God who spoke about using prayer and intercession in the night to shine light onto the(ir) darkness.
I have a passion for souls and intercession. It is my ministry call . My purpose for writing is to encourage up and coming prayer warriors, intercessors and soul winners to understand what is at work and to pray and intercede with understanding.
The bible says that the God of this word has blinded the eyes of the people so that they cannot believe (2 Corinthians 4:4) without the light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ shining on them, which is the commission we as saints have to ‘go’.
Jesus has said he is the light of the world and those that follow him would not walk in darkness but have the light of life. St John 8:12
As I write this, the whole Body of Christ is on its knees in prayer and intercession. Many (though prophetic and seemingly close to God) did not see, hear or anticipate the pandemic that has come into our world, crippling nations and taking many out – many to eternal damnation. We have to pray and there is much work to do. Time is running out.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is not just about salvation for souls, but it includes deliverance ministry. The people, nations need loosing and setting free. There are many examples of the Lord doing this area of ministry in the bible and it needs to be brought back to the fore. We can’t shy away from it or sanitise areas of ministry . Sometimes ministry is messy and painful but the objective to snatch back from peril. The people cannot see or receive unless they are first delivered and we do this through prayer and on our knees. We need to be shining a light on the dark places of the earth and the places where souls are being held captive.
This very week (July 2020), I was walking through my local town centre and I heard an almighty scream. The sound was coming from a grown man but the scream was one of utter despair and distress. He walked aimlessly through town and up past the Cathedral. Had it not been insensitive , I would have recorded the noise as he walked. I don’t think I have heard anything like it (and I say this having worked in mental hospitals as a nurse) at least not in the day time… I felt the Holy Spirit speak and say, Linda this is the cry of those entrapped in regions of captivity.
We have to do something, but my time was not yet on this particular day .
We pray and intercede and act from a place of knowing and understanding. Isaiah 11 said that the spirit of wisdom and understanding will rest upon Him ie our Lord and so we pray for this for us too.
As He is, so are we in this world.
We need the manifold wisdom of God to be able to wrestle with the spiritual entities that keeps people caged, trapped and wandering around in darkness.
I speak for the UK when I say it was raised as a Christian nation and a city of refuge for many. It was one of the reasons my parents came. I was born here. However over the years we have seen darkness and gross darkness creeping into the policy laws and precepts – changing the nature that the Creator intended for us into what can be altered and created by a mere man. It is painful to see and to watch the fall out, the disfigurement of many minds and bodies, as people seek to overrule and destroy what God had intended.
Social order is at its worst and there is much chaos and confusion.
Let me highlight a few things.
From time immoral the enemy of soul has tried to destroy the constitution of the union of a man and a woman and family life, even mass destruction of babies and it continues.
The welfare and wellbeing of the minds of our children is severely threatened.
It is time for the Church to Arise and to say enough is enough. We need to fight for the babe in the womb, for our children, for our spiritual and physical health, and for the family.
Sin is a transgression of God laws and sin comes in when there is darkness.
The essence of God’s plan was and is, around family and righteous seed, but delusion has come into the foundation – into the very fabric of our society and has caused confusion.
The church of Jesus Christ need to cry out and rise up and make a stand. The very foundation of our faith, who we are and what we believe, is being shaken. We are in serious jeopardy if we remain silent. If the foundation be destroyed, if we allow the building blocks of life to be removed, what indeed will we do?
God’s intention was for us to put him first. The first commandment. He is our glorified Father. We are made in his image. Male and female, created He him. We are not a circumstantial happening, we were created by Him and we are not going to morph into another earthly being.
He tells us that the very hairs of our heads, has been numbered. I believe it..!! I believe if a man can work out my DNA strand, then the eternal God has and can, count the hairs on my head and I know he knows my name.!!
God’s intention is for a man to leave his mother and to be joined to his wife, to procreate lawfully and within the boundaries that he instituted and dictated, and He did this for our welfare and protection. For our good.
The plan of God was for the man and woman to pour into their offspring (nourish and build up) and to work together for good and for the furtherance of the kingdom. That plan has not changed. However , what we see now in our societies is ever changing marital partnerships and covenants and vows repeatedly broken.
What we see is attempts to modify and circumvent the plans of God to suit our own fleshy desires. There is no respect for the sanctity of marriage and we keep changing the heads on the pillow and to our detriment. What happens is that we create confusion in the spirit realm, eternal soul ties jar and vie for position warring against each other bring disease and dis ease (sic). Children are caught up in the destructive behaviours that men and women bring into the marital relationship. A child can have three or four fathers in a life time and as many mothers – not because a parent has died, but as sin runs rampant in homes, across bedrooms and intimate (nay now public spaces) with no checks or balances. Anyone in the 21st century knows that anything with more than one head, is a monster… and this type of re-ordering, reclassification of gender and sanctity of family life (sadly endorsed by our law courts) is a monstrous depiction of the purposes and plans of God. The bible says that because sentence of an evil work is not executed speedily the hearts of men is set to do evil (Ecclesiastes 8:11). We are deluded if we think we wont pay the price.
Delusion is when someone is separated from reality – Aleithea is the Greek word for reality, kingdom reality. As intercessors , prayer warriors and soul winners, this is what we need to pray for – for kingdom reality to come in, in our own and our ministry affairs
Delusion is different from sickness and ill health and Father expects us to pray for healing deliverance for those who are genuinely diseased or unwell. What we are praying for are for people who are functionally deluded ie those that are holding down jobs, are intelligent and competent, they are suited and booted and look like they are doing okay on the surface, but they have traded the truth for a lie (Romans 1:25) and as a result are in jeopardy.
The further we seek to move away from the knowledge, the image and glory of God we become more esconsced in darkness, disorientated and disorganised. This, is the tragedy of the UK – selling its birthright and destiny in God, for a bowl of soup … and that which can never profit.
The spirit of Aeon has blinded the eyes of our leaders and the people – principalities and powers that govern different nations need to be understood including those hovering over churches. I believe the spirit hovering over UK is the spirit of nabal, spirit of slavery and oppression and the spirit of confusion, – I see it and personified in our current political leader(s) what we see in the physical is what is operative in the spiritual. The spirit hovering over the church is the spirit of the antichrist, and the spirt of Jezebel and many more lower echelon entities which time won’t allow me to go into here.
We remain on the subject of prayer and intercession and working in concert with our God. We are the bride of Christ and as depicted in the vision that John saw in the book of Revelation. (Revelation 21:2)
Marriage is a covenant. It is symbolic of God’s intention for the church of Jesus Christ. Intimate, enduring and eternal and full of love and compassion. When a man and woman come together, it is a process. Before they can move out and bless others they have to work together in agreement, and I speak this with regards to ministry and ministering to others. Where unity is, there the Lord commands the blessing.
Some pointers then for the intercesor, prayer warrior and soul winner
There has to be intimacy with the Father before we can bless others and beget seed and build kingdom.
WALKING IN RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS
God cannot operate where sin exist but He is not slack concerning his promises. He says to ask of him and he will give us the nation for our possession. He is with us on this journey , with us in our prayers and intercession, helping us to dispel regions of gross darkness into areas of marvellous light.
The opposite of darkness is discernment – pray for discernment to shatter the darkness. The devil needs darkness to work his plans when we come up against opposition we are dealing with the darkness that the enemy has placed over or the darkness that shrouds that person.
STAY IN THE GLORY
Pray in and stay in, the glory. When we come to Father, there is a process of glorification. But we you can’t handle glory all at once – glory comes incrementally as does the strength and power in our prayer life and it starts with intimacy. Simply put, God will put different levels of light in us , on us and around us, dependant on our intimacy . We need his light and his glory so we can pray in power and receive and take what we receive to the nations.
PRAY FOR WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING
Isaiah Chapter 11:2-5 talks about the 7 spirits of God and we need to pray for the multifaceted aspects of his divine nature to do of his good pleasure (ie the spirit of the lord, spirit of wisdom and understanding, spirit of counsel and might , spirit of knowledge and the fear of the lord) and most importantly to work together in unity because it is only then and there will he command the blessings.
We pray then for the spirit of lordship for ourselves to be in our families and our church. Praying for fathers to stay in role and for mothers to stay in role and work respectively together to have and bless children and dare I say it, to send the children out to take ground.
PRAY FOR UNITY
The Holy spirit has no liberty where there is confusion and the power will not be activated where there is no counsel, fear or lordship. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. We need a sense of fear and reverence and respect for the working and presence of the Holy Spirit.
PRAY WITH ALL KINDS OF PRAYERS
We need to take ground on our knees and actual because there is a veil over the minds of the people, they cannot see or believe the purposes of God on this earth. It is up to us to shatter those areas of darkness. Through intercession we can lift the veil that continues to obscures eye and proper vision. We need to intercede on our knees through our watches and at night. This is because when an individual is delusional you can’t talk to them in the day time – they are pre-offended – their hearts are fixed and set, like Lot’s wife and as our old UK prime minister said ‘this lady is not for turning’ The spirit of Jezebel and the spirit of the antichrist is at work and we need not to concentrate on toppling human statues but toppling these spiritual entities from our position in the throne room. We pray on the peoples behalf as the Lord instructed Ezekiel to admonish the people ‘Repent , turn your from your idols and turn away your faces from your abomination’ (Ezekiel 14:6) Righteous exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people.
As intercessors, our Prayers have to change to include declaration – take the individual’s name, their family their identity to the throne room of God and use the power and authority he has given us by using the rod and sceptre like Moses .
Declare that delusions is shifted and the darkness moved over that loved one in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Praying against the spirit of chaos and confusion, is the thrust for our prayers as we pray for the removal of the many obstacles and opposing spirits and do that our Father can fully operate.
May Father help us.
Yours in His Name
