Lesson #218 The Artillery of the Kingdom

Those of us who diligently seek the Lord receive not only Him, but the gifts and reward of the most powerful artillery of weapons to destroy any army of enemies (Heb 11:6, Is 10:27). For those of us who seek after the best gifts and
want to be sent by word and great power, you will be established for being contenders of great faith (1 Cor 12:31, 1 Thess. 1:5, 2 Thess. 3:3, Jude 1:3). You will have a great defense system without worrying about being hurt (Ps 23:4, Is 43:2, Mark 16:18, Luke 10:19). You will be part of an army rising up to break every chain (Rev 19:7).
This all sounds good (and it is), but moving up in the ranks like this may seem evasive (Acts 19:15), even though we read that we sit in heavenly places (Eph 2:6). God has a desire to use anyone willing to be part of His army for great exploits (Dan 11:32, Acts 1:34, 2 Tim 4:4), but few are aware what to expect when they follow the Holy Spirit or how to position themselves in the battle (Acts 19:2). If you’ve received instruction from those who denied the power of God or haven’t lived their full potential (2 Tim 3:5, 7, 2 Kings 13:19), you can began to seek God for this wisdom and fulfill your own destiny (James 1:5).

There are constant attempts for our flesh to detain us (Prov 12:24), our enemies to restrain us (John 10:10), until we lay hold to the eternal life (1 Tim 6:12) and keep our grip (Heb 10:35).

To learn how to participate with the Spirit, you first need to know what the Word says (John 15:26). It will give you the confidence that you will need (1 John 3:21). You will always find ways to use you spiritual sword to keep your edge (John 8:31, Eph 6:17). You began to be faithful in the little things to receive more direction and responsibility (Luke 16:10, 11, Col 2:7), building to acknowledging Him in all your ways to stay on the direct path to victories (Prov. 3:5, 6). This gives you a realistic expectation of the Word without getting a callous of built up unbelief; exercising certainty to reign in life (Mark 9:24). You will learn your enemy and participate in the strategy of God and not be hindered by ignorance (Hosea 4:6, 2 Cor 2:11, Col 3:15, 16).

Though our submission to God is first in the battle, or receiving our orders (God-consciousness), the enemy sets plans for us to listen to a different call (James 4:7). Even if is not detainment with entertainment for derailment, the main attempt is to keep you focused on yourself (self-consciousness) and convincing you that this is totally acceptable (Gen 3:4, 5). Many people wait or talk about Jesus coming back, but the Word is already within us for direction (Matt 24:43, Eph 6:18, 1 Thess. 5:6, Col 1:27). We must see and hear all through our sixth sense when we are in ungodly places, situations and keep the word given to us (Matt 13:19, John 15:19, 2 Cor 4:4).

The supernatural artillery we possess work against any thought that is formed in our minds (2 Cor 10:4-6, Eph 6:12). Some spiritual armies (spiritual wickedness) attempt to quickly fire darts with thoughts of; ‘you’re not all that,
God won’t do it for you, not this time, you don’t got it, you should be ashamed of yourself, He’s not coming, I told you it wouldn’t work
’, but having done all, we stand (Eph 6:13, Heb 10:35). Some ungodly powers may speak to you through others and say; ‘you’re going to get sick and die, you got to die of something, the doctors knows better than God and these are facts, you can’t get results like Jesus’, but you say by His stripes I’m healed! (1 Peter 2:24).

Although demons were taught by their leader that they had authority (Rev 12:4), they found that was very limited (Rom 5:14, Jude 1:9). Every demon, principality and power knows that we have authority over them (Mark 16:17, 18). We don’t allow past failures or temporary things rob us of our permanent reality (Phil 3:13, 14). We have a new Covenant. In this Covenant; we join the fight! We keep our spiritual arms up until every enemy is defeated, even if we have someone stand in agreement like Joshua holding up the rod of Moses (Ex 17:11, 12, Deut 32:30). We lay aside every weight (Heb 12:2), realizing that as Jesus is, so are we (1 John 4:17) as He has embarrassed impossibilities, so will we (Col 2:15), as He could call an army if needed, so shall we (Matt 26:53). Believe in your heart. Confess with your mouth. Using the Artillery of the Kingdom is just a breath away (Prov 18:21).
