One of my (and Patti Cake's) fave verses is Matthew 11:12:
From the days of John the Baptist until now, The Kingdom of Heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it.
We violent people, believers, don't have to raid heaven. We're citizens. What we have to do is stop the enemies of Yeshua from destroying the earth El-ohim has entrusted to us by violently defending it and violently redeeming that of which they've already taken possession.
Problem is most believers don't know how to be violent against God's ancient enemy. We know how to be violent against our families, against others and towards ourselves ... but not the demonic realm.
We've been given an arsenal full of weapons for the specific reason of warring from victory for more victory. We've also been given armor (Ephesians 6) because - like it or not - we are in a war in this life, on this earth, conception to last breath.
Some of our weapons:
Where are the warriors? The people who are willing to get violent in order to see God's Kingdom begin to rise up on earth? I don't expect to find very many, but with God two can do a whole lot because of the multiplied power of agreement. If you're out there, let me know. I'm not offering you anything, just wondering if anyone else is serious about accessing Kingdom authority to do more than just build a big church.
Our Father, Ruler of Heaven, Your Kingdom come to life, Your original design be manifested on earth as it is in heaven today and every day in our lives and in the realms of occupation You've placed us. Loose the angels assigned to this work to perform their tasks with excellence. We ask this all in Yeshua's Name and that it be sealed by Holy Spirit. Amen.
