Dethroning Principalities

 

“I’m building the wall”

 

Graham Cooke - The church is on a collision course with Kingdom right now, and it's not about how can we fit the Kingdom into what we are doing. Forget that! Because God is not going to lower Himself to fit in to what you are doing. What He is going to do is He is going to expand our understanding of the Kingdom and then stretch everything that we do as a community so that we fit everything that heaven wants to do here on earth. (from The Church Has Left The Building)

 

  • Purpose your gift towards the kingdom

  • Whatever you are called to do make sure the primary reason for you doing it is the kingdom

    • Some are called to government

    • Some are called to make money

    • Some are called to serve inside of the church, etc.

  • Make sure to put His kingdom first

    • God will not anoint what is not for Him

    • And “all these things” will not be added to you.

 

Get kingdom quotes from other people

 

Vision of area to rule

Vision off brown cloud

  • This brown cloud gets to exist because people gave it authority

 

Covenants exist by agreement of words

  • Are we in covenant with demonic principalities and powers through our bad thoughts, words and actions

 

We're dethroned the powers within our church walls. It was our Jericho

  • Now it's time to go to our area and take the land.

 

Ephesians 6:10-13 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

 

‭2 CORINTHIANS‬ ‭10:3-5‬ ‭AMP‬‬ “For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and a]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ,”

Jesus taught His disciples the kingdom and they took ownership

  • Luke‬ ‭10:17-19‬ ‭NAS “The seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name." And He said to them, "I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning. Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.”

    • God told His people to “Wipe them out & Utterly destroy” their enemies.

 

If we all did what the Bible says no demonic authority would have legal authority to be in power.

 

Apostolic government vs man's government

  • Religious system did not like Jesus governmental authority.

    • “who have you this authority”

 

From “brown clouds” come rain

  • In our area the rain is religion

    • Religious rain causes thoughts

      • Thoughts cause words and actions

 

Look at the religious leaders words and actions towards Jesus and you’ll see what the rain contains.

  • Condemnation, guilt and shame coming from...

    • Accusation, self-righteousness,  unrighteous judgement

      • It's the leaven of the Pharisees

        • The leaven of the kingdom is stronger

 

Rick Joyner, Overcoming the Accuser - In 1989, I had an experience in which I was caught up into the presence of the Lord. In this experience, I was a witness to the anger of the Lord over abortion. But to my surprise, His anger was directed at the church and not the heathen. He declared that if the church had not aborted the spiritual seeds that He had planted in her for missions, outreaches, and even the simple witness to our neighbors—then the heathen would not be living in such darkness and would not be aborting their natural seed.

 

Rick Joyner - The church released abortion by aborting God's plans in them

We released abortion by worship the creature

 

Romans 1:18-27 NAS 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21 For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
    24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
    26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

 

We can't just start punching at them

  • Our authority through words and actions released them

  • Our authority through words and actions can bind them

 

The Final Quest by Rick Joyner - The demonic army was so large that it stretched as far as I could see. It was separated into divisions, with each carrying a different banner.  The foremost divisions marched under the banners of pride, Self-righteousness, Respectability, Selfish Ambition, Unrighteous Judgment, and Jealousy. There were many more of these evil divisions beyond my scope of vision, but those in the vanguard of this terrible horde from hell seemed to be the most powerful.  The leader of this army was the Accuser of the Brethren himself.

 

The weapons carried by this horde were also named. The swords were named Intimidation; the spears were named Treachery; and the arrows were named Accusation, Gossip, Slander and Faultfinding. Scouts and smaller companies of demons with such names as Rejection, Bitterness, Impatience, Unforgiveness and Lust were sent in advance of this army to prepare for the main attack.

 

The most shocking part of this vision was that this horde was not riding on horses, but primarily on Christians!

  • As they agreed with those powers their assigned demons grew and more easily directed their actions.

    • It was obvious that these believers had only to stop agreeing with their demons in order to get free of them.  

 

We MUST stop with the criticising, unjust judging.

  • We are told to judge as an analyzation of whether a teaching is biblical.

 

By breaking agreement with it we dethrone it. By refusing to agree with it we don't allow us to be.
