The Mis-Directed Telegram
I know what you’re thinking…. “Dude are you really writing me today about a telegram, that’s funny because you weren’t alive when were invented”. Well, as much as I would like to divert your sarcasm, I can’t because you’re right. But one thing I can say is that if you bear with me a little longer you will see what you … yes you, no matter what decade in time that you were born in. You can see what you have in common with a Mis-Directed Telegram.
There were a few things that I really wanted to express to all who are willing to read. But I believe that our who loves us so much wants me to start with this…
I was reading the bible earlier this morning as I often do before starting my day. And the word came to me say; “The word profit them nothing”. Like many I though… “Wait a second, that can’t possibly be true. Why would the word profit nothing?” See I was always told that the word of God is truly all you need. That through a few quotes and scriptures that not only can I conquer my day but I can also move mountains. I thought what good would it be for a Christian to claim to be a Christian if the word… the only true weapon and mind of God himself can’t do you any good. If that’s the case then it would almost be as if a person in the military entered battle with no equipment, armor or artillery.”
So I began to look further into what was plucked in my heart and this is what he lead me to; For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed. - Hebrew 4:2
Alright, before I close out I want to ask you to meditate on something very quickly. If your promises that God as made to you are written in His word… if your power comes from His word as well. Then please picture this; Picture yourself sending a telegram or rocket flare from earth to heaven or the spiritual realm. Now this telegram, rocket or flare bares in it the hope of glory, power, promises or whatever else you are believing and asking God for. However it is fueled by a rare spiritual resource (No this is not oil LOL) called faith. Yep “Faith” and without this fueling and propelling what has been sent, then it will malfunction and prove as of no value.
How many rockets, missiles and telegrams have you sent to God, that have simply twirled back to the earth’s atmosphere cloaked in despair. How many mountains have you shot your rockets at in hoping to view your problems be blown to rubbish, yet instead mid-way through the clouds your rocket catches a short fuse and tumbles in the clouds?
See many times I believed that I always thought it was something that was causing things to go wrong…. But only to see that it was me that cut the fuel line to my own promises that he gave. How frustrating to know that one who desires something so much can also be the Jackal and Hyde, merely sabotaging the mission.
This is what many Christians think is happening to them, but really is never seen in the new testament; Background: Before reading you should know that this Daniel being approach by an Angel, he had been praying and the angel came in a dream. Now what is important to understand is this; in the bible after the fall of the 1st Adam, Satan/Lucifer was made King/Ruler of the world. The cool thing is that “we” believes are the Kings & Priest of the earth for after the crucifixion of Christ we are all the heirs of the world, this means it belongs to us and we have complete dominion. This dominion is that of Adam before he sinned yet even greater. (Many Christians have not tapped into this “Glory” but that is a another message for another day. I don’t to get too deep on you here so pay attention lol follow along) SOOOO…. In the bible when it refers to the angles or demons who hold these high places or high kingdoms on the earth they are called “Princes” not kings. We are called kings and they are Princes… even though they hold ruler ship over certain kingdoms. Why are they princess???,….. Think about it… a Prince only rules when he is under a king. A spirit can only act when a man/human is in allowance of it. Thus, a prince needs a king. By default all of us are Kings, so they need a Human to run their plan/objective through. Phew ok that was a lot, but I hope you got the gist of it, all this is in the bible when you read it will blow your mind. Anyway let’s get to this…..
“Then he said to me, Don’t be afraid, Daniel; for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard: and I have come for your words’ sake. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; but, behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me: and I remained there with the kings of Persia.” Daniel 10:12-13
Hmmmm…. Boy that is interesting isn’t it… apparently the Prince of Persia is a demon/angel who holds that position in the world and wanted to hinder the ministry of the angel before Daniel. But that’s not the focus today. The focus is simple and that is in the new testament you no longer have to worry about that because when Jesus Christ died he made us all righteous with the sacrifice of his life.
“We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him..” John 9:31
So the only thing that holds the prayer back isn’t even another demon, its only you’re belief/faith. Now you can allow fear to stop you by being influenced by an unclean spirit. But at the end of the day it boils down to your faith.
As a skillful Lawyer, I think I will rest my case with this;
“And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe” 1 Thessalonians 2:13
