Survival Strategies in the Last Days
There are things that are coming upon the earth. People, communities, and nations may not survive, but God's people will be strong. We will survive and we will have the strategy to survive because we have the spirit of prophecy that prepares us for where we are going and what we are to do.
When we have knowledge, we can position ourselves for power and success.
According to the Bible, there are four attacks that will come against the church and against you. The devil knows that his time is up and he knows that he is going to be bound for a thousand years and that he will be thrown into the lake of fire. He wants to take as many people with him and that includes you and I.
We have to make sure that he does not do that to us. In the last days, there are going to be seducing spirits that will be unleashed against God’s people.
Seducing spirits can make you fall. They will come against the integrity of your life, the reputation of your name, your marriage, your business, and the Biblical standards that you set for your life.
Seducing spirits break down your standards. They are doctrines of devils. It is so important to have the Holy Spirit because God will be our reality check that will let us know whether the truth of God's Word is being spoken.
Those who fall for these doctrines of devils and follow after false gods do not have a close relationship with God’s Spirit. Today, we need to walk in the Spirit so that we can expose the works of the enemy against us.
There are spiritual deceptions and there are false teachers. These false teachers look anointed and seem like they follow Christ. They look like they represent Christ, but they are the anti-Christ. The Bible warns us that many anti-Christs will rise up in the last days and they are going to come from the ranks of the church. These false teachers cannot seduce God's people if they come from outside of the church. They know the Christian language and culture and can use all the right words, but they can easily lead us to the wrong place.
1 John 2:20 - But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.
The Holy Spirit is the One who reveals truth and error. That is why we need the anointing. We need to be saturated in the anointing. We must be filled and continually filled with the Spirit. Why? Because we need to be sober, wise, and taught by the Spirit. The Spirit of God is the only One who is able to expose false teachers.
These false teachers are sent by the devil and are very clever and skilled. They are able to sway communities and take the hearts of God's people and lead them to the wrong place. That is why we need the Holy Spirit.
One of the things that are driving a negative atmosphere in the last days is the financial problems experienced world-wide. No-one on earth is immune to these effects. If we do not have the financial plan that is linked to a Kingdom financial mindset, we are not going to survive. If you are saving your money for a rainy day, those savings will not mean anything because they are going to be worthless. You need to have Holy Spirit directed and inspired financial strategies that come through supernatural living.
There are three kinds of atmospheres in the last days
1. Great fear
Today people and communities live in fear and uncertainty.
Luke 21:26 - …men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
God’s children who walk in the Spirit should not have fear because we do not have a Spirit of fear. When the Helper is present you will not have fear, but faith and supernatural power. We cannot survive in our own strength and when God’s power is manifest in our lives, we will not worry about tomorrow.
Our financial provision is not going to come from a worldly source but from a heavenly source. Start learning to trust God now for supernatural provision. Do not rely on any other source and do not rely on your own ability to provide for yourself. Rely of God. Make sure He is your source. As you fellowship with the Spirit, God will give you supernatural plans to survive and these strategies will be hidden from ordinary people who seek our natural solutions.
The secret of survival in the last days is in the heart of God and these secrets are revealed through the Spirit that is within us. Do not neglect the greatest power and presence that resides within you. You could be missing out of the greatest blessings and quality of life while you stress and worry about tomorrow.
