Day: Day 5
Date: January 13, 2023
Title: KINGDOM LIVING: The enemy is under our feet!
God, from the beginning, was willing to plant a seed of His Son for everything that would concern us.
Acts 2:30-31 NKJV
30 Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne,
31 he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption.
Jesus died for us, but as we have learned, He also LIVES through us! Jesus is alive!
Acts 2:32-33 NKJV
32 This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses.
33 Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.
But let’s look closer at this:
Acts 2:34-36 NKJV
34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand,
35 Till I make Your enemies Your … footstool!’”
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.
Today’s focus is: The enemy is under our feet!
God hasn’t just made us warriors, He has made us warriors that have the authority to bring the victory.
1 John 3:8b NKJV
For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
This is what the Ekklesia – the entire congregation of all who are called by and to Christ, who are called out to represent Him in all of His ways (the anointed children of God), needs to understand so that we will operate from a different level of understanding and take our positional authority against the evil one.
While we are praying for God to come, He has come to give us life and life more abundantly!
Part of that abundant life is the fact He has defeated the enemy already. AND He has called us to operate against all the works of the enemy as though the enemy has already been defeated.
The Church must rise in alignment with the truth of all that God has entrusted to us.
As I was writing this, Herbert Lindo, one of the elders of Liberty gave this prophecy, and of course, God says it best:
I feel the Lord is saying, the breakthrough is here. I haven’t changed. I am mighty! I am glorious! I Am the “I Am!”
My divinity has not changed. My power has not changed. But I am bringing the breakthrough so that you can be aware of it. I don’t have to get better, I am already “Best!” But it is your awareness of Me that gets better as you push in and press through you will see Truth! You will see My righteousness. You will see My might and power that has not ever changed. I am the “I Am!”
My might and power is not changed by the news; it’s not changed by your mood; it’s not changed by your desire; it’s not changed by the enemy; it’s not changed by anything! My might and power “IS!”
But I am bringing a revelation to you and I’m bringing the breakthrough. The breakthrough is these clouds, these clouds that have been clouding your perception of Me. This news that happened minimized your awareness of Me. But as you press through, you will see. My might, My power does not change. But your awareness changes. And I am bringing that awareness to you. You need to know that you are seated with Me in Heavenly places, and I have given you the authority. And that authority is not dependent on your mood. That authority is not dependent on what you feel like or the circumstances, or what the enemy is doing, or what news may sound like. That authority that I have given you is not dependent on anything but Me, and I have given it to you!
So this breakthrough is an encouragement for you to stand on that authority. When I created man, it was to take dominion over this earth. And you, Church, Ekklesia, YOU are the one that is to take dominion. So no longer be intimidated! No longer be intimidated by the roar of the enemy, as like a roaring lion. But I am the true Lion of Judah. I AM the True Lion of Judah! And you are my inheritance here on the earth, so take the authority! There is no time to waste. There is not time to waste! You must walk from the authority that is given to you.
Of course, I can’t say it better than the Lord said it through Herbert.
This year, 2023 will be a year when the Ekklesia, the Church, will walk in a higher level of understanding of our positional authority as we take action with the understanding that satan is under our feet.
A new awareness of his defeat will bring outrageous, boldness where there has been timidity because of disappointment and, because of satan’s relentless attacks. But the Church is going to act as though he has already been defeated as we face down the Goliaths that are but a fading shadow of threats against us.
ONE small stone is all that is needed when you are aware you are operating in alignment with the greatest authority, the Great I AM!
The intentional Mission Field is ripe and ready for those that will walk empowered, who will declare and decree and be dedicated for a marathon, not a sprint.
We are those He has called; now who will answer the call is a personal decision.
Herbert’s prayer that day was this:
Lord, in Jesus’ Name, I just declare the Word over Liberty. I declare this Word over the Church, Lord God. I declare that we are completely aware of who You are, Lord God. We won’t minimize You anymore, Lord God, by paying attention to the circumstance and the news. I declare that we are taking the authority, Lord God, listening to Your Word, listening to Your commands, listening to Your promises. We know that Your hope in US is the authority that changes this earth.
In Jesus’ Name.
We can all say YES to this anointed prayer and begin to move forward. NOW!
Ask God to show you just ONE situation in your life, your family or the world situation that absolutely looks impossible. Then re-read the prophecy above and stand up, take your delegated authority and release the power of God into the situation and believe it is changing and we will know it has changed because of your agreement with God in the situation.
Let’s all praise Him now as though it is already done!
