WAGING WAR by Pastor Paul Locke for loxland.com 10/07/2015
Invasion in the spiritual realm is fighting to take back territory from the devil. (Eph 6:12)† Classical rules of warfare in the flesh is to kill off the inhabitants so as they do not become a later problem. †Israel broke the classic rules of warfare in disobedience to God and allowed the inhabitants to live in the Promised Land.† God revealed that because the inhabitants worshipped other Gods they must go; lest they corrupt Israel. (Ex 22:20 & 23:23-24)
Disobedience to the commands of God (Ex 23:21) bring about dire consequences even today, for God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Taking the Promised Land was a slow arduous task and the original disobedience to the classical rules of warfare has effects that last even to this day.† Israel went into captivity, and later scattered throughout the world because they disobeyed the Angel named Jesus. (Ex 23:21b & Jhn 17:11)
Boundaries define land and each parcel is controlled by a territorial spirit assigned in the Table of Nations. (Gen 9:19)† The effects of this early dispersion are a world of different speaking tongues and multitudes of demon territorial spirits even to areas the size of a bean patch. (Gen 11:9) Spiritual warfare is taking territories from demons and giving to God; so the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the weapon to bring about this change in ownership of territories.
Muslims today are Ishmaelite and will suffer the consequences unless they receive Godís plan for them. (Joel 3:12)† The curse on Ishmael that he would be Ďagainst everyone and everyone against himí (Gen 16:12) and this curse can be removed through Jesus Christ.† Time for change without a prophesied persecution is now, before it is too late.† God has sent his son to remove the curse of sin and death through faith in the work of the Cross by Jesus. (Lk 2:11)
Insanity is from the devil because God does not give a spirit of fear but love, power, and a sound mind. (2Tim 1:7)† The Bible tells us of the multitudes in the valley of decision a place in time for you to act to accept Godís plan for you or reject it. (Joel 3:14)† Mankind is made in the image of God and comprised of Spirit, Soul, and Body so God the Father is the soul, Jesus the Son is the body, and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit, one God with three persons, hard to believe but in God all things are possible.
