We have looked at several powerful spiritual weapons the Lord has given to you and me to be a victorious Christian in this world and overcome satan and satanic beings.
In previous teaching I have shown that the keys to the Kingdom of heaven (binding and loosing), the Word of God, the name of Jesus and prayer, are all spiritual weapons that Jesus left us when He ascended into heaven. Needless to say the Lord did not leave us defenseless and has given us overcoming weapons to defeat our enemy.
As I look across our desk in our office I often look at the replica of a Christian that Nita and I have sitting on our desk and he is fully clothed with the armor of God.
That serves as a reminder to us that when you and I asked Jesus Christ into our hearts and were born again according to Romans 10:9-10 that the Christian soldier we have on our desk is who you are in Christ Jesus.
That is the way Jesus sees you and me, fully suited up with His armor to help us be victorious in this world.
YOU MAY NOT THINK THAT YOU HAVE THIS ARMOR ON BUT YOU DO, WHETHER YOU USE IT OR NOT IS UP TO YOU. WHETHER YOU ARE VICTORIOUS IN THIS LIFE AS A CHRISTIAN IS TOTALLY UP TO YOU. JESUS HAS GIVEN YOU THE ARMOR BUT HE WILL NOT MAKE YOU USE IT!
The way you have faith in the fact that you already have this armor on and how to use it is by reading and meditating on the Word of God and asking the Holy Spirit to give you a revelation of what this armor is and how to use it.
I know you have often saw me say that you need to get a revelation from the Holy Spirit regarding His Word.
What do I mean by this?
When I say to understand something that comes through your mind, but to get a revelation of something can only come from the Holy Spirit and is manifested in your spirit man, the real you. It is that “aha moment” that you say, now I really know what the Word of God means concerning this scripture.
Of course this revelation of God’s Word is a progressive thing as you read and meditate on the Word of God and ask the Holy Spirit for His revelation and it is a life-long endeavor.
2 Timothy 2:15 talks about this maturing in faith and revelation in the Word of God. “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
The armor of God belongs to you, the armor of God is the way God sees you, fully suited up to be an overcomer.
FYI, you never take the spiritual armor off.
I’m sure that you have noticed just because you go to bed does not mean demonic beings have gone to bed. As a matter of fact at night when you are tired and need your sleep is a favorite time of satan to come against you.
First of all satan knows you are tired and may have let down your guard and he will attack mind faster than machine gun bullets, trying to pepper you with negative chatter and how you are no good and God does not love you anyway and beside that God is mad at you. Satan will try every lie in the book to try to defeat you right when you are in bed.
That’s why you always need to be aware that you never take your armor of God off and it is available 24/7. Isn’t God good, He knew what you and I needed?
Another FYI, satan will also give you dreams from him that include fear, condemnation, unworthiness, hatred, strife and the list goes on and on.
Which of course you need to speak out loud to satan and use the Word of God to rebuke the devil.
Let’s look at all of the armour of God that He has given you:
Ephesians 6:10-18 King James Version (KJV)
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Let’s look at each verse so I can point out things that will help to amplify and clarify what is being said.
Vs. 10 The Apostle Paul is talking to an existing church in his day and giving them instructions about the armor of God and it’s important so they will not be beat up by satan and his crew. Of course you have noticed that satan is still around in the day that you and I live and we need that armor just as much today as they did and actually even more as the rapture of the Church and the Day of the Lord is upon this world we live in.
Vs. 11 Notice the Apostle Paul says to put on the whole armor of God. In other words get that revelation of that fact that the Lord has already given you the armor all you have to do is get a revelation of it and start using it.
Some people have faith in certain parts of the armor and not others. For instance they might have no problem in believing in having on the shoes to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ but they have a hard time in the breastplate of righteousness.
These same Christians cannot believe that through Jesus Christ they are the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ. So they need to read and meditate on more scriptures about them being righteous through Jesus Christ being in them. (See 2 Corinthians 5:21)
This scripture promises that the armor of God will help you to defeat the wiles of the devil. When I look up wiles in the original Greek language as the New Testament was written in Greek, wiles means deceit or trickery from the devil. So the armor of God will help you defeat satan even though he will try to deceive and trick you. God will give you His wisdom.
Vs 12 This an extremely important part of the verses on the armor of God. The Apostle Paul states that you are not in a wrestling match like you may have gotten into in high school in your physical education class like I did. Instead Paul states that you are in spiritual warfare with demonic beings.
No one likes to be in spiritual warfare with demonic beings but as I told you in my introductory teaching on this subject there is not a person on planet earth that is not in spiritual warfare with demonic beings. Even infants in the womb are affected by demonic warfare as satan will try to cause sickness or disease to them or difficulty in delivery so you need to take authority over these situations.
From the time of inception of an infant to the time of your last breath or the rapture of the church, whether you are born again or not, whether you believe in spiritual warfare with satan or not you are being attacked by demonic beings.
Don’t get me wrong, sometimes in fact very often people will just do dumb things and they have to pay the consequences. We have all been there but hopefully have learned and said out loud, “With the Lord’s help I will never do that again.” And mean it.
So spiritual warfare is not like that wrestling you took in school. We are all fighting against demonic spiritual beings and it lists all of levels of demonic beings, principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places.
But the great news is that we will win every time if we just use the armor of God. The Apostle Paul told his young protégé Timothy, “Fight the good fight of faith…” 1 Timothy 6:12
What is a good fight, it is a fight you win, Amen? Hallelujah!!!
I am going to continue on the armor of God next Monday. However I believe I have given you a lot to mediate on this week, Amen?
EVENTS HAPPENING IN OUR MINISTRY: I want to give you an update on the outreach that we are doing at Conrad Freiholtz Ministries:
On Wednesday October 19, 2016 I had a man over to our house to help me do some yard work. While I was working in the yard with him the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me to talk to share the Lord with him and ask him if he wanted to ask Jesus in his life and be born again. Well there came a time that day that I could talk to him and led him to the Lord. I was so excited afterwards that joy was all over me. The man I led to the Lord had tears in his eyes and kept thanking me for praying with him to receive the Lord. I told him don’t thank me, thank the Lord.
The reason why I share these salvation events with you is not to lift myself up, God is the one that is something, I am just doing my reasonable service to the Lord and fulfilling the Great Commission. Matthew 28:18-20 I want to inspire you to take every opportunity that you have to lead someone to Jesus Christ, that will give you more joy that you could believe. It is one of the most satisfying things you could ever do.
On Saturday September 17, 2016 Nita and I had gone to a mall and met with a Christian friend that we often share the things of the Lord with. The 3 of us had been sharing for a while when a man came up to our friend and we found out he knew our Christian friend so now all 4 of us are talking together.
My Christian friend introduced me as a minister friend of his to this man whose name is Joe.
Needless to say Joe started asking me all kinds of Bible questions for some time. The Spirit of God talked to my spirit and told me that I needed to lead this man to the Lord. Finally I looked at Joe and told him you have asked me many questions now let me ask you a question.
I asked Joe if he had even been born again and he hesitated as he then told me he belonged to a certain religion. I advised Him that Jesus is not coming back for any religion but instead born again believers. John 3:3
Nita talked to him and then he told Nita he wanted for me to pray with him to ask Jesus in his heart and be born again which Joe did and WE WERE THRILLED.
After we led Joe to the Lord he kept thanking us and I told him don’t thank us thank Jesus Christ for coming in your heart. Then we found out that this man was 91 years old.
The older a person is the harder it can be for them to come to Jesus Christ which is a fact. So we know that the Precious Holy Spirit moved upon his heart.
Nita and I lead people to Jesus Christ as we minister in the church but that is not enough. We pray that God will lead people to us outside of church so we can lead them to the Lord and He absolutely sends them to us.
The Great Commission burns in us that tells us to lead people to Jesus Christ always. Matthew 28:19-20.
Nita and I get no greater joy than leading people to Jesus Christ in the church and out in the world where the sinner are on the highways and byways of life. That is our reasonable service as it is to all of us.
I want to encourage you ministers, the 5 fold ministry gifts, Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher to lead people to Jesus Christ in your church, have altar calls after every service and also as you go out into the world every day.
Of course that goes for everyone whether you are a minster or not we are all called to lead people to Jesus Christ to fulfill the Great Commission. Amen? We are all called to be ambassadors for Christ. Please see 2 Corinthians 5:18-20
Then I wanted to let you know that 3 other ministries contacted Nita and I on the world web during the week of 9/12 -9/16/2016 consisting of 2 ministries from Africa and 1 from Myanmar formerly known as Burma as of 9-19-2016. That makes 16 ministries that have contacted us from different parts of the world. They have found our website and are receiving our ministry of the Word of God.
So we thank the Lord once again for spreading the ministry of His Word to bless people around the world
Nita and I are humbled by all of this and just want to be used of the Lord to spread His Word and REVIVAL around the world.
We are also grateful for the individuals from around the world that have contacted Nita and me through our website address and they have asked for prayer and questions and guidance in their lives. Nita and I pray over every prayer request we receive and count it a privilege to do so.
So we also encourage you individuals to contact us with your prayer requests and any questions you might have.
Praise you Lord we give Him all the honor and glory.
We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches as well as going to churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival several times in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
DO YOU HEAR THE WORD OF JESUS TODAY? SAY YE NOT, IN OTHER WORDS DON’T SAY THERE ARE FOUR MONTHS AND THEN IT IS TIME TO HARVEST, THE WORLD IS READY FOR REVIVAL NOW, NOW, NOW.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We have done 2 Skype ministries in Pakistan and the Holy Spirit moved greatly from that live ministry and touched that pastor and congregation. We give all the glory and honor to the Lord. Nita and I were very blessed about this service as we could really sense the presence of the Holy Spirit and His love and power as I ministered to this church including an altar call.
If you have just came to this ministry website today or have been visiting it on a more regular basis and the Spirit of the Lord has talked to your heart about going into intercessory prayer for Nita and myself and this ministry and giving financially even on a monthly basis we just ask that you will be obedient to what the Lord has spoken for you to do.
I believe there are some of you that have been touched by the Spirit of God by the work and vision that Nita and I have been called to and you want to help us and we do need your help spiritually and financially.
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.” Isaiah 1:19
We thank you.
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.

If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him.

We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
This includes the ones that not able to go to church because of disabilities and sickness or for one reason or another can’t attend church. Can you imagine how this Word of God would bless and comfort them? Please share this website with these folks also.
