Summary: You're greatest blessing is coming. Your payday is here. Get ready for your faith to soar as you discover - YOUR WARFARE IS OVER!
Your Warfare Is Over
“Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.” 1 Thessalonians 2:18
Notice what Paul the Apostle said to the church in Thessalonica, “wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul.” This is the one who was caught up into the third heavens and wrote more books of the New Testament than any other writer.
He also had so much of the anointing and power that God wrought special miracles by cloths and aprons that had been on his body being placed on the sick and those with evil spirits and they were healed and delivered.
“And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: so that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.” Acts 19:11-12
Paul, one of the greatest, if not the greatest apostle that ever lived said, “I have been hindered by satan.” The word “hindered” means restricted, blocked or opposed. So we find here in Second Thessalonians chapter two and verse eighteen satan hindering, opposing, blocking and resisting one of the greatest men that we know.
Paul found himself here experiencing what the old saints called “spiritual warfare.” I know it is not a popular thing to say in this day and hour, but the truth is, if you have destiny upon your life you have experienced or are experiencing spiritual warfare to some degree.
If you have in the past or are currently experiencing spiritual warfare, it is because of the fact that you have been called to greatness!
You are not called to be average, but you are called to be great. In fact, you may not even be called, but you may be part of the ones that have been chosen.
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14
Maybe you are wondering why other people that you know are not experiencing the spiritual warfare that you have experienced. The answer is simple: they are not going where you are going, they are not going to have what God is going to give you, they will not do what you are going to do and they will never become who you are going to become.
The warfare you have experienced or may be experiencing is because of the divine destiny upon your life. Ask yourself the question, “Why would satan spend so much time fighting me if he did not see something great on the inside of me?” The enemy would not be fighting you so hard if you were not destined to do something great.
The enemy sees something in you that even the people around you may not see. The enemy may even know something about you that you don’t know. Satan is spending so much time fighting you because of the destiny upon your life.
Has the Warfare Increased?
If the spiritual warfare has recently increased, it is a sign you are close to a major miracle, a major breakthrough. You are close to something really big happening in your life.
It may be a new anointing, greater doors, a major financial release, a divine connection, but God is about to do something greater than you have ever witnessed or experienced.
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”
Something big and new is coming to your life. Your prayers are about to be answered, your dreams are about to be birthed, your vision is about to be manifested and your prophetic word is about to come to pass.
Understand if you have experienced spiritual warfare it is because of the great things that God has for you. If the spiritual attacks have increased, understand it is because you are about to experience something new and wonderful in your life. You are about to step into the next level of your divine destiny.
So many of God’s people, including men and women of God are under such a strong demonic attack at this time. Many are experiencing strange attacks and even close to death encounters.
Just a few weeks ago, on the day I was leaving for seven weeks to preach in several states throughout America, I almost had a car wreck that could have caused great damage to me or possibly even taken my life.
Many of God’s people are experiencing strange attacks and close to death experiences. Some feel sick but the doctor cannot find anything wrong. It seems things are happening that are just hard to understand, things that just don’t make sense.
In return, many of God’s people are frustrated, aggravated and exhausted. The Word of God tells us that in the last days satan will try to wear out the patience of the saints. This is exactly what he is trying to do today. He is trying to wear out the saints. He wants you to give up on your prophetic word. He wants you to abort your dream and give up on being who God called you to be.
