These are the ugliest days in America. They are designed to trap the child of God with anger, depression, despair and exhaustion. Satan wants to destroy your sleep. He is fiercely pursuing your peace. He even wants to use your love for God against you.
We have entered a season in American life that is the worst that Christians have ever known. There are forces crashing against our spirit that are unheard of by prior generations.Satan wants you angry, depressed and exhausted. He wants it for a different reason that you know. He is using fake news, political correctness, and the insane behavior of people around you to crush your spirit.
It is ironic, but it is the core of God’s people—the remnant who hold to their convictions who are under the greatest attack. They are encountering withering lies of the devil and attacks that seem to come from every direction.
They are suffering from isolation: Since they are not at home in the compromised church they feel isolated and even punished for dropping out of the shallowness.
They are also under attack at their jobs where their stand against immoral living makes them a target of outright hostility and false accusations of being judgmental or hateful.
They are the special target of Satan for a reason that is hidden. They are marked by evil to be attacked more viciously than the lukewarm believer.
A verse I’ve read for decades just woke me up to the reason for the attack on you. It explains that Satan feverishly labors to crush the spirit of those God has chosen. Jesus said, “”Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. -Luke 21:34
In this message, I will show you three things to do that will make you able to conquer all you feelings and emotions. You are here for a big reason. Satan wants you trapped so that you miss the day of His power. The harvest you were promised—the revival you have yearned for—the outpouring you have expected. But God has more than provided for this attack.
Lucifer knows your role and wants you trapped by emotions and yes addictions! It is shocking to many on fire Christians that Satan would use their broken spirit to try to trap them in drugs and alcohol. They are shocked to be reeling under this temptation after years of fiery dedication to Christ.
It’s a trap! The devil wants you out of commission on the day of His power…but now, we will rip the mask off this attack and we will defuse the bomb that is threatening your emotions. It is time for a special last day’s miracle in your spirit!
It is time for supernatural emotions! The three things I will ask you to do are tied to one single victorious and defiant declaration…
This declaration will–if you let it ignite in your soul–not only save your life but give you power you never imagined. It will make all of the difference in the world to your health physically and mentally. There is one declaration that will pave the way for you to conquer anything that the future holds.
What is the declaration—roaring out of our spirit—that would give us the upper hand over all of the insanity of this time?
THE END TIMES ARE NOT HAPPENING TO ME. I AM HAPPENING TO THE END TIMES.
You are declaring that you are happening to the end times when you do these things:
1. Become catalytic. A catalyst is any substance that changes what is around it without itself being changed or consumed. The hellish events of today cannot change you or consume you.
Now look at God. He gives special grace for these last days. Grace is not just favor. It is not just forgiveness. It is the combined power of the resurrection and the righteousness of Jesus Himself.
We hear Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out exploits.” We hear that verse quoted quite often but we may be failing to see the real good news in that promise and its direct bearing on what you are going through right now.
Because you know God you are protected from the corruption of this time. Because you know God you will be stronger than these times. Because you know God you will not merely survive these times, you will exploit them.
2.Declare God’s power over your physical health. He will restore your energy, He will oversee your immune system. He will guard your heart so that your resistance to disease will be awesome. Obamacare cannot begin to match the benefits of what Christ offers you now.
Psalm 103: 1 “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
Isaiah 40: 31 “But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”
James 5:14 “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”
You do not have to dread long lines at an emergency room when you claim Christ as your doctor and the guardian of your health!
3. Let supernatural emotions remove your fear of bad news, headlines and threats.
It is time for the people who quote, “Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world, to also confess “greater is He who is in me than what is happening in the world.”
Psalm 112:7-8 “He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”
God wants to give us supernatural emotions. Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.”
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
God wants you to walk in the knowledge of His supernatural protection. John 17:15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
What shall we say to these terrible, evil, stressful things? We shall say: THE END TIMES ARE NOT HAPPENING TO ME. I AM HAPPENING TO THE END TIMES!
Is this an arrogant boast or worse a delusional boast? Absolutely not. You must take your position in the heavenlies. When the anointed of God take their proper stand in the heavenlies, the circumstances of the last days must bend to their destiny…and their emotions to the joy of the Lord.
