SPIRIT POWER by Pastor Paul Locke for loxland.com 28/10/2016
Flesh body is the vehicle that spirits use to operate in power on earth. The difference between a Ghost and a Flesh body is the first can affect thought and a Flesh body can exert power in the physical realm. God created the heavens the spiritual abode and the earth a physical realm. Heaven was the home of God’s Angels until Lucifer led a rebellion of one third of the Angels that God cast down to earth as Demonic spirits.(Isa 12:12) Lucifer is called Satan or Devil the enemy of God.
All flesh became the home of demonic spirits after the fall of man. (Gen 4:7) God chose to cleanse the world of evil by the flood, however many demons survived in the animals brought onto the Ark. At this point mankind was righteous by faith in God; however demons were able to influence later generations of man through self-righteousness, a focus on man’s ability and not on the Creator God. (Gen 11:4) Tower of Babel is the symbol of man’s sin against God.
Vulnerability of man needed to be addressed by giving him the choice to overcome sin. (1Jhn 1:9) God had a plan from the beginning to empower man to overcome the Devil and it came, “By the blood of the Lamb, and the word of their testimony, and did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” (Rev 12:11) This new power from God is the Holy Spirit outworking through Born Again believers.
Lamb of God our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth the head of the Church is in heaven sitting at the right hand of God the Father. John the Baptist pronounced the identity of Jesus as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. (Jhn 1:29) The power that Jesus received for ministry came down upon him like a dove at his water baptism when God said, “This is my beloved Son in him I am well pleased.” This same baptism into power is for all believers. (Acts 1:8)
Laying hands for impartation is taught in the ‘Parable of the Talents.’ (Mtt 25:25) The One Talent is from hearing the Gospel and the extra Talents are from doubling the talent through impartation by placing hand on a repentant sinner. (Acts 8:18 & 19:6) Satan through Freemasonry has blocked this ministry in the Church because he is God’s enemy. Not believing the works of the Holy Spirit for today is blasphemy and be quick to repent of your ignorance.
