ENGAGING THE POWERS OF DARKNESS: MORE THAN A PROPHET

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world (1 John 5:4).

In his letter to the Corinthians, Paul says in I Corinthians 6:1-4, “Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints?  Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life? If then you have judgments concerning things pertaining to this life, do you not appoint those who are least esteemed by the church to judge?” Likewise, those who are least in the kingdom of heaven are greater in the ministry than those of the old covenant. John is greater than those born of women, but we are born of God! “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world” (I John 5:4).

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12). The Kingdom of Heaven suffers (puts up with) violence from men of great force and strength. To advance the Kingdom of Heaven into the regions of darkness, there must be those who are fearless and forceful: men empowered by the Holy Spirit to do His work in the earth.

Jesus tells us that these are those who by force and radical zeal affect change in the earth by bringing Light and expelling darkness. I believe we are the generation that is “more than a prophet.” We will see great advances by this kingdom that do not come with observation.

One cannot say “here it is” or “there it is.” This kingdom of which we are a part is of another realm and another dimension. There is nothing in time or space that is able to conquer or subdue it. If you feel small and insignificant, do not despair; even those who are least in the kingdom are more formidable than the strongest of those born naturally. If you are strong, rejoice all the more.

Love,

Pastor Don
