Another kind of 'Invasion'
New World Order, Bohemian Grove, Aliens, UFO's....if you're into spiritual warfare, these things are all too familiar in your vocabulary. BUT, have you heard of the latest invasion for overcomers?
Exposing darkness. Is it important? Yes! Wake up the sleepers-- very important. But church.... I'm noticing a new attack zone that's as old as old leatherbelly offering Eve an apple in the Garden of Eden. It's simple.... tell the truth but add in a lie.
It's hard when trying to wake up the church in exposing a lie with some of this stuff... especially the stuff that has completely penetrated our society like yoga and tibetan sand mandalas. Yoga has a health benefit attached and with mandalas, I've heard many a christian argue that it's just a pretty art form. Never mind the occultic underlying things that people want to attribute to superstition or 'they don't really mean that'.... c'mon the truth is strange. Most of the church rejects supernatural anything... turn the cheek... nope, didn't see that. People are quick to reject anything on the other side of the fence... especially any mere mention of anything regarding the enemy's camp. We know we can't dwell on that side of the fence but we must be aware of what's going on over there to have an effective offense. Eeegad! Even the army operates this way!
A trend I'm now seeing that we need to be wary of is members of the occult masquerading as 'christians' and supposedly 'exposing' this darkness. Having some 'appearance' of Godliness. YouTube is infested with it. And this is the challenge.... dividing the truth from the lie.
We cannot bury our heads in the sand.... what do we do?
1 Thessalonians 5:21 "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."
BUT the enemy quotes the scriptures toooooo! That is the problem folks....the only way to tell is by the anointing (or lack of it) coming off of the media you are in-taking, and by watching the fruits that are produced.
The other day I was watching something that had all the right exposing media... it used scripture, but when it was done my spirit was troubled. Something was wrong, so I prayed & Jesus asked me "What is the spirit on this video that's troubling you?"..... ah, yes Lord.... it IS a spirit & it's one of confusion and FEAR. Then He told me to look at the fruits produced, so I looked at the comments for the video and then it was all too clear. The video owner was attacking and judging other christians etc.
Again, exposing darkness has it's place-- there is definitely a need for warriors to do so especially in combating the enemy leavened batches... but we have to also ask ourselves where do we need to spend most of our time?We all have to ultimately remember it's not about exposing satan, so much as it is getting close to the one whom has saved us. And as we are conformed into His image our fruit bears Greater Works. It is deliverance and healing and love that conquers satan... and who is it that is commissioned to do these Greater Works? These Greater Works of signs and wonders of the kingdom of God in the Holy name of Jesus? Our focus is not to be in heady knowledge of what the enemy does so much as it is in the anointing of Jesus pouring out as rivers of living waters through US!
[Prayer and impartation to feel the anointing of God and the greater gift of discernment]
Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things."
