I feel an urgency to release this short word. Last night I clearly heard the word PUSHBACK in the spirit. It came as an URGENT INSTRUCTION – we need to pushback against the wiles of the enemy in this hour. This pushback requires immediate obedience!
This week has been extremely difficult on many levels. I thought I was fighting my own battles but I started hearing other Christians complaining about the same things. Last night I felt the heaviness again and all of a sudden, I heard Holy Spirit whisper that there has been a release of extreme dark forces upon the earth – we need to pushback!
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
~ 1 Peter 5:8
Focus on JESUS!
It is of utmost importance to stay focused on Jesus. Do not take your eyes off the Lord. Our strength comes from Him! Although the enemy is taking out stronger weapons and he is using different tactics to ensnare us, scripture tells us what to do:
“Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
~ James 4:7
People tend to misinterpret this verse. Satan is expert at drawing us away from the Lord’s presence to get us to fight him. You can’t resist satan on his terms. You will live in constant defeat.
Resist in this verse doesn’t mean fight. Old tactics of spiritual warfare are just not going to cut it anymore (not that it ever really has). Only those who learn to abide will be able to persevere.
If satan attacks you with pride, for instance, you submit to the humility of Christ. You behold the Humble One Himself. You bask in His presence and you resist satan’s pride by pressing deeper into Christ’ humility.
Satan will try harder to get you out, with more pride. RESIST! Resist the urge to give in and accept satan’s thoughts as your own. RESIST! Take every thought captive (2 Co 10:5): Quote scripture out load that says the direct opposite (Mat 4:1-11). Praise the Lord and thank Him with those truths in direct opposition.
The Release of Higher Truths
While me and my husband were praying about how the Lord is instructing us to pushback, I heard the Lord say that while the enemy is taking out stronger weapons, HE will teach the remnant new tactics!
These are HIGHER TRUTHS and NEW WEAPONS that will be released. Although these truths have been available to us all along, only a few people in the past have accessed them. Only those in centuries passed who pressed in and went higher could taste these mysteries.
These higher truths and mysteries have been preserved for the last hour and it will be unveiled for those who faithfully abide in His presence.
Do not fight, but FEAST!
An example of a higher truth is to stop fighting and start feasting. Psalm 23 says “He sets a table before us in the presence of our enemies” Our weapon is feasting in and on the presence of the Lord.
Another one of these higher truths that the Lord has taught my husband is to cast the Lord’s presence on your problems or attacks until it is resolved in His presence. My husband will share this in a blog post sometime this week (so be sure to subscribe so you won’t miss out on that).
Do not allow the enemy to keep you out of the Father’s presence. Be sure to pushback by coming in the opposite spirit through worship, proclaiming scriptures, praying in the spirit or in whatever way the Lord leads you.
The longer we allow the enemy to linger on our doorstep, the more ground he will gain and the harder it will be to get the effects of his defilement out of us.
The Spirit reminded me of my dream Winds of Resistance Against Faithful Witnesses and of the Lion of Judah watching over us! We are surely building muscle capacity by pushing forward against this strong wind!
“For our weapons of warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ“
~ 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
