There is a fresh revelation in the area of ‘RESPONSIBILITY’. The keys that lock and unlock doors to the spiritual – both the demonic and the holy, are in our hands. It’s ‘wake-up’ time for the Bride of Christ to walk in her godly authority as king and queen. What she loosens, will be loosened. What she binds, will be bound.
I heard the Lord say, ‘The enemy walks around as a thief in the night, sending out his devouring demons, seeking out unlocked doors and open entrances. It’s time to wise up, My beloved Bride. It’s time to recognize the attack before the arrow hits and the hook is pushed in.
He has spent your whole life studying and mastering your weak spots. He knows exactly which button and trigger to press to set in motion a response that will cause an unlocking of doors. He is fully predictable as his tactics are always the same. That familiar spirit that lurks at your door must be recognized, rejected and resisted at all times. He starts off with his spewing lies in a moment of weakness, tiredness, or weariness, waiting for you to come into agreement with him. Then he plunges his sharp hook into your old wounds again. When your mind and soul get penetrated with his lies and hooks, legal access is given to that devouring spirit to enter your land. The one thing you cannot let go of in this era, is the revelation of your authority to lock and unlock the doors to your land.
That authority brings with it a responsibility to steward your land well. Keep the foxes out. Shut the mouth of the accuser and reject every lie. Walk in agreement with Heaven, and unlock the doors to your land ONLY to the holy, pure Spirit of the Living God and His angelic host.’
There is a close, intimate partnership with God in this era. We are called to an upgraded place in our minds. The revelation knowledge of who Christ is in us, and what He has accomplished for us – our authority and position – is ‘key’ to us inheriting our promises. The gifts and call of God are irrevocable, but we must understand how to access them and hold the line.
The enemy cannot touch us when we know our authority in Christ. His greatest fear is our understanding and revelation of this truth. Know your place and hold your ground. There are no more excuses for the Bride of Christ to walk in ignorance, opening up the doors to trespassing spirits that enter to devour our land. It’s time to ‘man up’ as watchmen of our walls, seeing the attack before it hits, and chasing the enemy away. It’s time to make him tremble in the presence of our King as we walk in His power and authority.
We are a Kingdom-people. We set an order when we take our place and position that cannot be undermined or trampled upon. The Word of the Lord to each of us today, is: ‘Stand your ground, hold the line, fight the fight, and tolerate no evil. You hold the keys to the doors of your land. Lock and unlock with wisdom, discretion and the fear of the Lord. Be faithful stewards of your inheritance and give the devil no access. Remain alert, awake and on guard to sense when an arrow is released in your direction. You hold the keys to your household. Take full responsibility for your responses and actions that, in turn, lock and unlock the doors of your land.’
Sending you all lots of love and blessings!
1 Thessalonians 5: 4-28
4But you, beloved brothers and sisters, are not living in the dark, allowing that day to creep up on you like a thief coming to steal. 5For you are all children of the light and children of the day. We don’t belong to the night nor to darkness. 6This is why we must not fall asleep, as the rest do, but keep wide awake and clearheaded. 7For those who are asleep sleep the night away, and drunkards get drunk at night. 8But since we belong to the day, we must stay alert and clearheaded by placing the breastplate of faith and love over our hearts, and a helmet of the hope of salvation over our thoughts. 9For God has not destined us for wrath but to possess salvation through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. 10He gave his life for us so that we may share in resurrection life in union with him—whether we’re awake or asleep. 11Because of this, encourage the hearts of your fellow believers and support one another, just as you have already been doing.
12Dear brothers and sisters, make sure that you show your deep appreciation for those who cherish you and diligently work as ministers among you. For they are your leaders who care for you, teach you, and stand before the Lord on your behalf. 13They value you with great love. Because of their service to you, let peace reign among yourselves.
14We appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, to instruct those who are not in their place of battle. Be skilled at gently encouraging those who feel themselves inadequate. Be faithful to stand your ground. Help the weak to stand again. Be quick to demonstrate patience with everyone. 15Resist revenge, and make sure that no one pays back evil in place of evil but always pursue doing what is beautiful to one another and to all the unbelievers.
16Let joy be your continual feast. 17Make your life a prayer. 18And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.
19Never restrain or put out the fire of the Holy Spirit. 20And don’t be one who scorns prophecies, 21but be faithful to examine them by putting them to the test, and afterward hold tightly to what has proven to be right. 22Avoid every appearance of evil.
23Now, may the God of peace and harmony set you apart, making you completely holy. And may your entire being—spirit, soul, and body—be kept completely flawless in the appearing of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. 24The one who calls you by name is trustworthy and will thoroughly complete his work in you.
25Now, beloved ones, pray for us.
26Greet every brother and sister with a sacred kiss.
27I solemnly plead with you before the Lord to make sure that every holy believer among you has the opportunity to hear this letter read to them.
28May grace from our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen!
15He is the divine portrait, the true likeness of the invisible God, and the firstborn heir of all creation. 16For in him was created the universe of things, both in the heavenly realm and on the earth, all that is seen and all that is unseen. Every seat of power, realm of government, principality, and authority—it all exists through him and for his purpose! 17He existed before anything was made, and now everything finds completion in him.
18He is the Head of his body, which is the church. And since he is the beginning and the firstborn heir in resurrection, he is the most exalted One, holding first place in everything. 19For God is satisfied to have all his fullness dwelling in Christ. 20And by the blood of his cross, everything in heaven and earth is brought back to himself—back to its original intent, restored to innocence again!
6In the same way you received Jesus our Lord and Messiah by faith, continue your journey of faith, progressing further into your union with him! 7Your spiritual roots go deeply into his life as you are continually infused with strength, encouraged in every way. For you are established in the faith you have absorbed and enriched by your devotion to him!
8Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of human logic. For they operate with humanistic and clouded judgments based on the mindset of this world system, and not the anointed truths of the Anointed One.
9For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10And our own completeness is now found in him. We are completely filled with God as Christ’s fullness overflows within us. He is the Head of every kingdom and authority in the universe!
11Through our union with him we have experienced circumcision of heart. All of the guilt and power of sin has been cut away and is now extinct because of what Christ, the Anointed One, has accomplished for us.
12For we’ve been buried with him into his death. Our “baptism into death” also means we were raised with him when we believed in God’s resurrection power, the power that raised him from death’s realm. 13This “realm of death” describes our former state, for we were held in sin’s grasp. But now, we’ve been resurrected out of that “realm of death” never to return, for we are forever alive and forgiven of all our sins!
14He canceled out every legal violation we had on our record and the old arrest warrant that stood to indict us. He erased it all—our sins, our stained soul—he deleted it all and they cannot be retrieved! Everything we once were in Adam has been placed onto his cross and nailed permanently there as a public display of cancellation.
15Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were his!
