I have written several blog posts about faith, but this post about faith is a little different. Well for one, it's personal for me. Not only am I writing this post to encourage you, I am writing this post to encourage myself and help me remember to take the promises of God I am believing for by faith and by force!
Jesus said, "The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force." Translation: the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for those who he can devour and violently steal from, kill, and destroy. But Jesus clearly states we in the Kingdom of God must violently fight him back. And we do that with our faith and works, because faith without works is dead. Now let's get to the heart of this message!
Violent faith. What exactly is that? Well, it's the faith that believes and trusts God in the midst of violent circumstances. Examples, Daniel in the lion's den, the three Hebrews in the fire, and Paul and Silas in prison. I can list more, but you get the point. For me personally, it's a bad medical report of a family member. The situation seems bad, like reaaaal bad. But that's where my violent faith steps in and works. I can sit around and hope for a better report. I can even pray for a better report or I can use my violent faith and demand a better report. Now, I am going to pray, but I am also going to use my spiritual weapons and take my family's member healing by faith and by force.
Psalms 107:2 says, "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy." The greatest spiritual weapon we have to violently fight against the devil is the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Jesus said speak to the mountain, not pray about the mountain. There are somethings we pray about, and then, there are some things we violently take by faith and force. I am not praying that my family member gets healed, I am demanding his healing based on my power and authority in Christ and God's Word.
This is not the season for hoping and wishing. This is the season for fighting the devil back, violently. You need violent faith if you are going to see certain promises in the Word of God fulfilled in your life and in the lives of your loved ones and friends. Satan doesn't play fair. He plays dirty. He throws everything at us, but the kitchen sink, and some times he throws that at us too. He is a violent fighter and he likes to causes God's people to suffer. But those with violent faith, fight him back violently, using the Word of God and the weapons of worship and praise.
It's time to fight the enemy back. It's time to see the promises of God fulfilled in your life and the lives of your loved ones and friends. It's time to go to WAR because the violent take it by force!
