** Here is a teaching I as well as three other Men and Women of God had an oppurtunity to teach a few weeks ago on “Prophetic Warfare”. I honestly wish I had a cop of their teachings as well, they were all blessed and truly awesome. I was amazed at the different revelations we had all received in regard to prophetic warfare**
And once again a big THANK YOU to my Pastors Michael and Danielle Hathaway for the opportunity
a BIGGER THANK YOU to the Spirit of the LIVING GOD!!
We love you Lord and on today and everyday we celebrate you God and delight ourselves in your presence!
Ok Here you go …
Enjoy and Happy Blogging
Everyone needs to have Gods living word active in our lives as the word tells us that we can not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
God’s words are creative and they form our lives. When He created the heavens and the earth … He spoke and then there was.
God’s words can come to us as
His word builds our faith and trust in Him, it gives us hope.
It also reveals to us His character, thoughts and ways.
Us being His children we have a right to be able to hear our father. Just as a natural father is concerned with every detail of life so is our heavenly father. His word tells us that sheep know their Sheppard’s voice and no other do they follow.
His word comes to bring life and shed light on dark areas.
Moments of enlightenment … when we have received fresh revelation from God and have been empowered and set free
With every prophetic word that goes forth there is almost always something that comes against that prophetic word.
*Prophecy is simply the testimony of Jesus Christ. Prophecy isn’t something only prophets do every believer can prophecy does not meant everyone is called to the ministry of a prophet but everyone has the ability.
Prophecy is as simply as quoting a scripture from the word over your life.*
Mark 4 14-20
14 The farmer sows the word. 15 Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. 16 Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. 17 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 18 Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; 19 but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. 20 Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.”

Mark 4 14-20
14 The farmer sows the word. 15 Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them.
The enemy’s job is to sift us as wheat, wear us out, to separate and detach us from God and His will for our lives to keep us stuck and doubting God, to keep us blind. He comes to steal, kill and destroy.
When we receive a word we need to make sure we have it written down and we meditating on that word we received along with the word of God (cushion it). Whether, it is a word received by a prophet, God rhema word during service, something spoken into your spirit, or whether you read it straight from the bible then you need to have written down and in so far embedded in your spirit the enemy can not take it away. We need to get it to the point that our thoughts and meditations begin to produce it in the natural that thing spoken begins to manifest itself. As a man think in his heart so is he.
It is not only the enemy we got to look out for and be aware of we got to be aware of our own tactics.
16 Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. 17 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.
Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; 19 but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful
** As we can see from verses 16-19 **
We have to be ready to demolish all arguments (we have to be ready to cast down everything) and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
We have to take an active stand to the whiles of the enemy and of our own flesh.
We as believers have to simply believe and stand firm on the word and God’s promises to us.
We cannot allow the world and circumstances choke out word in our lives. We have to take in this word daily as this is a spiritual food. This is our strength and our hope. This is what builds our faith knowing that God has a plan for us and our lives.
Have faith in God knowing that He is faithful and the perfect work He has begun He will also complete… He is faithful and will do it.
We have to stand being fully convinced of His word and promises to us.
**Verse 20 reads**
20 Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.”
So is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
When God releases His word into our lives it does not return to Him the same way He sent it out but when it is sent out and if it is cultivated properly then for us we reap the harvest.
So, in close we have to take serious hope in the fact that when God sends out His word it is going to do just what he sent it to do. But we have to make sure we are in position to receive that word.
That is what this fight is all about. It’s about what God has spoken since the beginning of time. It is what He has spoken over your life since you formed in the womb. Our battle is not again flesh and blood but over God’s will for your life.
If you do not know if the enemy can keep you from it then how will you know and walk in it. Make it your mission to know God’s will and purpose for life.
Hold on to it and protect it … fight for it.
If He said in His word that the fruit of womb is blessed then that’s what it is
If he said He will complete the perfect work He has begun in you then He will do just that.
If He has called you to be the lender and not the borrower then He will do just that.
I do not care if he gave you a word 5, 10, 20 years ago … if He gave you that word then trust and rely on that word until it comes to pass.
Some of us need to be more like Caleb who waited 45years for His word to come to pass.
