You may not consider praise and worship as a spiritual weapon but as you read the scriptures I gave last week in that ministry you will see that it is one of the most powerful spiritual weapons against demonic attack that you could ever use. I also give you examples of it in the Word of God and personal graphic experience that I have been involved in to defeat and render demonic beings helpless.
It will give you another weapon that your Lord has left you to be victorious. God’s Word boldly declares: YOU ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH CHRIST WHO LOVES YOU. Romans 8:37
I love it, THE GOD THAT IS MORE THAN ENOUGH, EL SHADDAI HAS GIVEN YOU MORE THAN ENOUGH STRENGTH THROUGH HIM TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY.
WHAT A LOVING AND GREAT LORD JESUS CHRIST WE SERVE. HE SURELY TAKES CARE OF HIS OWN.
I want to remind you that as you go to our website you will find a tab that says: “JESUS FILM” which are short videos about the life of Jesus Christ. Most of them are about 2 or 3 minutes long. They will help to bring the reality of Jesus life to you and would be great for a Bible story for your children or grandchildren and of course after the film is over you could supplement them with a little teaching on your own. You could show your children one each night.
Please make use of it as there is excellent quality both spiritually and in the film itself, they will bless all who view them.
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;
Two weeks ago in Spiritual Warfare part 12 I left off in Ephesians 6:12 so today I will start with Ephesians 6:13
Vs. 13 This verse reminds us that there are more than one piece of God’s armour for us and every piece is for a different weapon against satan, they are all important and they are all effective.
Without all of the armor of God you will allow a huge hole in your armor and of course that is where satan knows will be your weak spot so he will constantly attack you in the area that you do not observe and use.
Then the Apostle Paul goes on to say that when you do observe and use every piece of your armor that the Lord left for you to not only defend yourself but to defeat satan that you will be able to withstand or defeat your enemy in the evil day.
What is the evil day? First of all the evil day is the day you are attacked and it also defines the actual last day’s time that you live in.
I get people that are not even born again and they ask me do you think we are living in the last days? Of course I tell them yes and refer to the many prophecies that are in the Bible about the very last days you and I live in. You see even many in the world know something big is about to happen.
Of course these last days prophecies is another teaching all together but I do want to say something that is very important for you folks that are already Christians to understand.
You remember the Magi i.e. the wise men, they believed and followed the prophecies in the Old Testament and because they followed them they found Jesus Christ the Savior of the world after their long journey to Bethlehem.
In other words those that believed in the prophecies in the Old Testament were given direction just like we in the New Testament times are given direction through Bible prophecy as to the general time that Jesus Christ will be coming for the rapture of the Church so you can be ready.
Then getting back to vs 13 and the first part of verse 14 it ends up saying having done all to stand, stand.
I’m sure you have asked the question what do I do when I believe I have done everything the Bible says to do to be a victorious Christian? The answer is to stand. In other words don’t give up, don’t retreat or back up, stand there and continue to do what you know to do and don’t let the devil back you off of what you know is right and he will end up backing off.
Your armor will give you victory.
Vs. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt with truth. What does the Bible say about the truth. Jesus said: …”if ye continue in my Word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8: 31-32 Do you want to be set free? There is your answer. That is something to shout about alright.
Then is states to be sure to have on the breastplate of righteousness. This is the piece of armor that probably is the biggest hurdle that the Body of Christ has to deal with and it is because they do not understand what this verse is actually talking about.
First of all you did not do anything to be righteous in your own efforts it came with the new birth when you asked Jesus Christ to come into your life. This verse is not talking about your righteousness that you brought on the scene but it is rather talking about the presence of the Lord Jesus in our spirit after you were born again.
After you asked Jesus into your life His spirit entered into your spirit and you became righteous which means right standing with God because He gave you His righteousness. “For He (God the Father) hath made Him (Jesus Christ) to be sin for us, (on the cross) who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him (Christ Jesus).” 2 Corinthians 5:21
Vs. 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Meaning once you become born again you are to be fishers of men and lead others to Christ that is all part of the Great Commission Matthew 28:16-20. It is estimated that 95% of Christianity has never led one person to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Religious cults don’t seem to have a problem leading people to their false religion, why does Christianity, for the most part, have a problem in leading people to Jesus Christ?
What an indictment.
Vs. 16 Above all taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery dart of the wicked (satan). This verse shows you that the shield of faith is a tremendous defensive weapon.
Did you now that every day satan fires fiery darts at you? It could be unforgiveness of you husband or wife, coveting what someone else has and now you are jealous and self-pride are just a few of them. But when you realize the tricks of the devil before it ever gets to those things I mentioned above you use your shield of faith and quench those fiery darts by believing in the Word of God and walking in it even when it seems rough. Then those fiery darts are cast down and never hit the mark.
Vs. 17 Taking the helmet of salvation. What is the piece of armor called the helmet of salvation. First of all what does a helmet do, it cover your mind right? Where does satan attack us in spiritual warfare, it is in our mind?
Your salvation is your new birth that Romans 10:9-10 talks about: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto SALVATION.” Romans 10:9-10
These 2 verses are how you get born again and it brings you salvation. It brings you everlasting life with Jesus Christ forever and ever. It is the greatest thing you can ever do for yourself and then lead someone else into that salvation.
When you use your helmet of salvation a lot of doubt and distorted thought and opposition can come from satan but you have a peace that passes all understanding and you are not rattled at satan’s attacks. Even when satan questions your salvation with the Lord because you are anchored in the Rock of Ages, Jesus Christ, you cannot be moved. Hallelujah to the King, Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord.
You are a conqueror in Jesus Christ.
And the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. All of the other pieces of the armor of God are defensive but the Sword of the Spirit is your offensive weapon.
Every Christian should seek to get a revelation from the Holy Spirit about the awesome power of the Word of God. It will break every stronghold every fetter that satan ever tries to bring against you.
How did Jesus defeat satan in the wilderness after He fasted for 40 days, just the way you and I can do it today and that is to use the Word of God against the enemy. Find the scriptures that talk about your situation and speak them out loud to the enemy. The Bible says resist the devil and He will flee. See James 4:7.
Vs. 18 Of course everything works together for good when we combine it with prayer. Even with the armor of God we need to have a daily powerful prayer life.
So I encourage you to read and meditate on these scriptures of Ephesians 6:10-18 about the armor of God and realize that although the Lord has given you the privilege of having the armor of God which will bring spiritual victory in your life He will not make you use it only you can do that.
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 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 I 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 it 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. All 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 were 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 Nita and myself 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 sinners 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 this in these scriptures 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 the Middle East and saw a great move of the Spirit in the church. At the end of the service we also gave 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.
