Spiritual Warfare Preventive Maintenance

When the enemy shows up in our life, it is time for us to do some preventive maintenence. Find the source, confess, repent, and take ground.

The enemy gets mad when I talk about this;
Demonic night terror has common symptoms;
We are clean with the words Jesus spoke to us;
Our feet get dirty when we walk in the world;
We shall know ourselves by our fruit;
We commune with ourselves in the quiet times;
The light of God searches the inward parts Prov 20:27;
Getting secular songs into our heads instead of worship songs;
I had a demonic night dream - checking under the hood;
Youtube TV trial had wicked commercials compared to yesteryear;
From Howdy Doodie to Desperate Housewives to gay Jesus;
From 'Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God' to the songs we have today
Jesus says to do our first works - our first love, look how far we have fallen;
Deut 7:26 don't take the curse into hour house lest we become le it;
Act 19 burning the curious arts;
Listened to heavy metal and led worship - spiritual poison;
Things we utter in our hearts will come to pass; like Jesus said;
Joshua 7 Achan coveted a garment and all Israel was powerless;
The god of this world blinds the minds of unbelievers;
Set no wicked thing before our eyes ps 101:3;
Jesus illustrates the chronology of sin;
Nancy Petrey is talking about this in her post;
My burning the heavy metal CDs and occult books;
Fouls of the air snatch the word that was sown in our hearts Matt 13;
I was delivered and could think clearly;
2 Tim 2 purging ourselves of iniquity to be a meet vessel;
My Book Open Your Eyes My Supernatural Journey

The Spirit of Truth and Spiritual Mentors

One of the ways God gets our attention is when the Spirit of Truth illuminates a passage as we read the Bible (John 16:13). We may have gone over the bible several times and still some doctrines in scripture can remain hidden because of our theological lenses or preconceived ideas. We develop these theological lenses or preconceived notions when we listen to preachers or get caught up with media much more than we read or listen to the bible. Our fountain of learning is not from the source, but is somewhat like third hand knowledge or stale manna. Doing this actually conditions us to ignore or become callous to the Spirit (2 Cor 4:2-6).

The current monologue system does not allow for question and answers like Jesus had with His disciples. Learning in the monologue system is not nearly as effective as with a mentor or group setting like Jesus and the early disciples. 1 Corinthians 14 and Acts 13 are good passages to ponder about group gatherings as well as all the sessions when Jesus taught and did ‘on the job’ discipling.

When we read a scripture and the Spirit of Truth illuminates it to us, other passages will pop up in the spirit confirming, attenuating, or contrasting the current passage. It is at that point that we wait on God and dig into the word looking for other passages to illuminate the doctrine even more. Once you catch on to this, you will find that passages pop up that you have previously glazed over or even flat out ignored them. You will begin to see it all throughout scripture!!! Even for years to come!

I have run across doctrines that have come up over the years that were not popular doctrines but were a hidden treasure (Matt 13:44). I then toss it over with mentors that have the signs of a believer (Mark 16:17,18) at operation in their lives and find that they are pretty much on the same page.

We want to ‘strive’ to be the ‘few that find it’ (Matthew 7:13-14) that Jesus talks about. So, if a doctrine is popular and the Spirit of Truth is highlighting something contrary or attenuates it, it is time to talk it over with a spiritual mentor. Not just any mentor, but one with the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-26) and signs of a believer that Jesus guarantees in scripture.

If we are a lone cowboy without spiritual mentors, we have a possibility of falling into error like many have. Many people have gotten a real revelation from God, then got puffed up, or off by themselves, and then went off track. Be cautious of this pitfall. It is very serious.
