Let’s continue with the teaching on spiritual warfare, which is needed more in this time in history than ever before as the Rapture of the Church is fast approaching and satan is coming against not only Christians but all mankind.
Jesus Christ is building His church and the gates of hell shall not prevail but at the same time we must do spiritual warfare with satan and demonic beings so we can be victorious over them in our individual lives. Matthew 16:18
(By the way as you read that verse Jesus never has built His church upon Peter or any other person than Jesus Christ. In that verse Jesus is talking about Peter receiving revelation knowledge of who Jesus Christ is. Jesus has built His Church upon revelation knowledge of who He is through the Holy Spirit).
The good news is that we as Christians win as our Lord has given us a huge arsenal of weapons that defeat satan every time.
I am going to introduce those weapons to you and how the Word of God says to use them.
Spiritual warfare is mentioned many times in the Bible from Genesis to the Book of Revelation.
Sometimes it is more subtle but still is very much in use.
Jesus talks about 4 results of planting a “seed” which is the Word of God in the heart of man. The ‘field” is the world and the “good seed” represents the true children of the Kingdom.
The first sowing of the seed (Word of God) is found in Matthew 13:19 and the Jesus said that seed (Word of God) was received by the way side because that person received the Word of God but didn’t understand it. (My people go into captivity due to a lack of knowledge of the Word of God. Isaiah 5:13)
Secondly there was another person in the parable that received the Word of God on stony ground. See Matthew 13:20-21.
Satan saw to it that here was a person who wanted to get the Word in his heart so satan made sure that persecution came along from satan and that person became neutralized because he was offended, in other words he had unforgiveness in his heart.
Thirdly we see the person that received the seed (Word of God) among thorns and satan made sure that the cares of this world and deceitfulness of riches chocked the Word of God and it became unfruitful. Matthew 13:22
Then the fourth planting of the seed of the Word of God went into a heart of a man that was good ground. Jesus said that person heard the Word of God, and understood it and did bear fruit some a hundredfold, some sixty and some thirty fold.
Let’s see what Matthew 13:23 says about this good ground: “But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the Word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”
This parable is about spiritual warfare as we can see who is behind all of this deception, it is satan.
Satan will try to keep an individual seeking to be born again from letting it happen in the first place that’s why satan tries all of these attempts to try to get a person from trying to receive the Word of God.
However if that person receives the Word of God then satan will try to take away that’s person testimony and try to discourage him.
Maybe you have read this parable many times and have not seen that all of this is really about spiritual warfare.
Spiritual warfare actually started many years ago before Adam was created with Lucifer in heaven when he said he wanted to become like God and was kicked out of heaven. There is no time line stated for this occurrence but was obviously between the time God created angels and when Eve was tempted in the Garden of Eden. Please see Isaiah 14:12-13
So spiritual warfare initially started in heaven.
Then after satan is kicked out of heaven he goes to the Garden of Eden and uses lies and deception against Eve to eat the fruit of the tree that God told Adam not to eat of it so they created rebellion against God.
Satan had now attacked the greatest creation of God which was mankind and had him fall due to not obeying God’s command not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Then continuing in the Old Testament we see satan attacking mankind over and over again in an attempt to destroy him. See John 10:10
Spiritual warfare from satan and demonic beings is seen in Cain murdering Abel and the world got so full of sin that God brought the great flood and destroyed all of mankind because of sin in which was running wild and God could see that it would only get worst.
But after the flood satan is once again going into spiritual warfare with man as man rebelled against God once again by building the tower of Babel and when you look at Genesis 11:4 you see that “us” stuff.
They were into themselves and could care less about serving the Lord and they would not disburse over the earth and multiply as God commanded Noah to do. See Genesis 9:1
Then as you continue to look at the Old Testament you can see many times that satan is continuing his spiritual warfare with mankind trying to destroy mankind and the Jewish people in particular.
Some examples of this is Joseph put into the ditch by his brothers and left for dead, Moses and God’s people in bondage for 400 years. In the Book of Esther you see satan working through Haman trying to destroy the Jewish people. Daniel in the lion’s den just to name a few.
In the New Testament satan continues his spiritual warfare through King Herod wanting to destroy the Baby Jesus.
Then in the New Testament Jesus raises up His disciples and they are persecuted virtually everywhere they went sooner or later.
In the Book of Acts the spiritual warfare continues with satan working against the Apostles to try to crush them and their message as well as the new converts to Christ.
It continues in the Book of Revelation when the antichrist is trying to kill the tribulation saints who are the people who get saved during the tribulation and it states: “And they overcame him (satan) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11
The examples I gave you of spiritual warfare in the Old Testament and New Testament are just a few of the many attacks of satan against not only the saved Christians but the world as well.
Like I have stated before the sad thing is that the unsaved do not know where all of this spiritual warfare is coming from they just think that what will come will come and they think they have no guard against it at all. Unfortunately most Christians feel the same way.
I am not saying that every single bad thing that comes against us that we can stop through spiritual warfare. However for sure we can greatly diminish what satan is going to try to come against us and rip us off. We need to obtain knowledge from God's Word as to what belongs to us in Christ Jesus and refuse to let those blessings be taken away from us.
Now let’s look at another side of this spiritual warfare, because satan loves ignorance about God’s Word so he can get away with so many things.
What I want to share with you now is that many people once again including some born again Christians blame God for what satan is doing to them and the world.
That’s why you must get a revelation of: “The thief (satan) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: (you and all your loved ones, your friends and the world), I (Jesus Christ) am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
So to make it simple to understand, satan has come to kill you, to steal from you and to destroy you.
But Jesus said I am come to give you life and that you will have it more abundantly.
What an easy choice right?
Satan is a deceiver and he wants to try to blame all he does to you on Jesus.
So what happens if you believe that trash, then you get resentful to the Lord and start having unforgiveness toward Him and of course your trust for the Lord goes also.
On the internet I saw an explanation of what they think an act of God is: “An act of God is an unusual, extraordinary, sudden and unexpected, manifestation of the forces of nature which man cannot exist.”
What the insurance company does not tell you is that fire, flood, earthquake, infestation is really an act of satan but obviously the insurance companies have never read John 10:10 and got a revelation of what it says.
In reading that Bible in your lap have you ever noticed that Jesus was out rebuking winds and waves and other forms of damage.
If Jesus is out rebuking what He causes I would say that does not make sense, right?
Then the insurances companies’ explanation regarding an injury is: “An injury caused by an act of God is an injury due directly and exclusively to natural causes which could not have been prevented by the exercise of reasonable care and foresight.”
Once again the insurance companies are focusing the blame on the Lord instead of the true culprit, satan. Please read John 10:10 again.
Isaiah prophetically spoke about the crucifixion many years before it happened and Isaiah 53:1-5 gives us a picture of Jesus Christ on the cross long before it happened and Isaiah says in Isaiah 53:5 “that by His (Jesus Christ) stripes or whippings we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24 looking back at the crucifixion says …by whose (Jesus Christ’s) stripes (on Calvary’s Cross) we are healed.”
As we get a spiritual revelation of the fact that Jesus took stripes for our healing we can receive the blessing of physical healing that only Jesus can give.
Nita and I declare this saying, “God is good ALL the time.” He truly is.
So the Lord is not the cause of your problems it could be satan, or even you.
Something to think about?
I will continue with ministry on spiritual warfare next Monday.
NOTE: I want to give you an update on the outreach that we are doing at Conrad Freiholtz Ministries:
Recently a pastor from a Christian church contacted us through our world-wide web site address. It was miraculous how the pastor found us on the world-wide web. We did not know each other nor did the pastor know anyone who knew us. But we have seen this happen time after time as ministries and individuals from around the world have been directed from the Holy Spirit to contact us. (A good sign.)
This time it was from the country of Pakistan and this makes the 12th church that has contacted us from different parts of the world. Pakistan has only 1.6% Christians in their whole nation. This contact indeed was another miraculous intervention of the Holy Spirit to lead another church to us.
The pastor sent us an e mail and asked us to minister to the church by Skype which we did and had a wonderful service along with an altar call.
The pastor had a large screen to project the Skype on so all of the church could see me clearly, just like live television and I could see them.
The pastor said they were all blessed and I ministered to them by the wording I used in my teaching and has asked us to minister in their church by Skype again, which we will do.
Nita and I thank the Lord for how the Spirit of God is leading churches to our world-wide website. There are different accounts of how each of the 12 churches have found our website, cfmministry.org on the web and each one is a blessing from the Lord.
We have ministered to each of the 12 churches as we have been led and continue to do so.
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.
Nita and I also continue evangelizing and soul winning that we do as it is the most important part of this ministry.
Recently in our private Christian lives Nita and I have asked the Lord for more and more people being sent to us to lead to Jesus Christ and HE continues to send them to us and we continue to lead them to Jesus Christ as their savior.
One of the people we led to the Lord was on a literal death bed, but praise God we led her to the Lord and just a few short hours after we did she passed away but we know she is with the Lord in heaven. Praise His name.
Then we also just led a lady to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. She said been seeking for tongues for most of her life and is now in her 40’s but has now received. Praise the Lord.
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.”
On Sunday June 26, 2016 we did another Skype ministry 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.
Another new development, we have just been contacted by another pastor of a church on the border of Tanzania, Africa. This makes the 13th ministry that has contacted us through our world-wide ministry website. The pastor stated that our website has been a blessing to him and his congregation.
The pastor also stated that he has downloaded our statement of faith and is using it in his church in teaching his congregation.
We praise and thank the Lord for what He has done and is doing and the miraculous things He will do to bless people all over the world with His Word.
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.
