This one was bad. You don’t want the little ones, but you definitely don’t want one of these. It probably registered an 8.7 on the wrecking scale. What God had spent 25 years in the making was about to end in 25 minutes.
Loud, explosive words of hurt and hate spewing from the mouths of Mr. Proud, and Mrs. Stubborn! Satan, no doubt, was in the shadows of darkness cheering with every foul, and fateful word spewed. He probably was ringing his hands, anticipating, the final blow that would end it all. He must have been pleased with his demolition plans, for he loves to kill, steal, and destroy.
Fast forward to today. The couple is still together, and in fact, their love is stronger than ever. How did they do it? They didn’t, Love did. God, knowing their darkest hour had arrived, hearing their invitation for his help, must have dispatched an army of angels to defeat his enemy, and theirs. The couple didn’t know how to stop the eruption of anger and fear, but they knew how to pray, or in this case, scream, out of desperation. What they may not have known, is they were fighting forces unseen.
“In conclusion be strong—not in yourselves but in the Lord, in the power of his boundless resource. Put on God’s complete armour so that you can successfully resist all the devil’s methods of attack. For our fight is not against any physical enemy: it is against organizations and powers that are spiritual. We are up against the unseen power that controls this dark world, and spiritual agents from the very headquarters of evil.” (Eph. 6:10-12 PHILLIPS)
Everywhere people live, there are ruling spirits doing the work of the devil. One such spirit, here in the Philippines, is the spirit of control. It seems to be more prevalent in women, but it is certainly seen in men as well. The way to defeat this spirit is with God’s help, but also by repenting of this spirit in your own life. I have to on a regular basis. One should stop fighting people, especially those they love, and ask God what evil, ruling, spirits are over their land? Once you know, claim your authority, you have in Jesus, and speak to the ruling spirits and tell them, in the name of Jesus Christ, to flee. Then watch how the people around you will change, and live in peace. “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”
