“And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.” Ex 8:9-KJV
There are three basic things Satan uses to steal, kill, or destroy the work of the Lord in and through people: infirmity, poverty, and religion.
He uses fear as a weapon to capture people and accomplish the “big three.” We have certainly seen that with the world-wide pandemic. All over the world churches, schools and businesses have been closed down or restricted. Governments have shut down travel and kept people in their homes. In many places, we have seen these “protective measures” being used to for political purposes to maintain power, control groups, and manipulate economic structures. Satan orchestrates these things to especially target Christian churches and the work of the Gospel.
The Lord has used this situation to prepare His people for the outpouring that is to come. Millions are crying out to God for mercy and an end to this restriction. In our last newsletter, we shared about the Lord’s promise of fire in Pentecost. Since then we have seen many of Satan’s plans exposed.
The Lord has shown us that our response to Satan should be like that of his instruction to Moses. “Go to Pharaoh (a type of Satan) and say, ‘Let my people God that they may worship me!’”
Would you stand with us in name of Jesus using the authority of the Lord of hosts with the fire of the Holy Spirit released at Pentecost? Call for diseases to be cured and Satan’s demonic hordes to release both resources and restrictions that keep God’s people from doing the work of the Gospel. Ask the Lord to reveal religious mindsets the enemy has used to keep people from pursuing the Lord fully. Together, the Body of Christ can overcome.
