Commentary By: Gordon King
Several days ago I wrote about the presence of evil spirits in the air, about an unusual restlessness that I have had in my spirit for a few days. Since that time we have seen the brutal and gruesome attack on hundreds of innocent civilian lives in Las Vegas Nevada. We should all take the time to pray for the victims of this horrific event!
I am not claiming that I knew this was going to happen, of course I did not, however I have felt the increase in spiritual attacks, and these spiritual attacks are on the rise manifesting themselves into the physical! Evil spirits are moving across the veil between the spiritual and the physical, they are unleashing ungodly havoc upon man, upon the world.
What we see happening is caused by evil, evil spirits and powers, demons, fallen angels! Some people are led by these spirits to perform such heinous acts, while others are actually possessed by these demonic powers. They are here and they are real!
As time moves on, and we don’t have much of it left, at least not the way things have been, we will see an increase in these demonic attacks. The closer we get to the return of Christ, to the day of the Lord, demonic spirits will seek to destroy what God has created. They will seek to destroy, to steal from us, and to kill us! They seek the division of God and man, they seek to destroy our souls in Hell!
What the devil doesn’t seem to know is that the more evil he unleashes, the more people will come to Christ! However, with that being said, many will still be led astray, many will not see the light, and many shall perish. And even though these demonic spirits have no power over our souls as believers they can attempt to destroy our lives while here on earth.
God Almighty, Jesus Christ, is the only one and true God, He has power over all things including Satan and evil spirits, after-all, He created them! These spirits have no authority or power over believers unless we allow them to. In fact, we are the ones who have power and authority over them, we have already overcome them!
‘Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”
18 And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” ‘
1 John 4:4
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.“
Jesus Christ has given us the authority and the power over these demonic spirits, it is Christ within us that gives us this power, nothing of our own. We are children of the Most High God of the universe, and as such we are under the protection of our Lord! Whatever happens to us only happens if the good Lord allows it to happen.
Father in Heaven, Holy is Your name, I pray for the victims of this tragic and horrific event in Las Vegas Nevada yesterday. I pray for their peace and comfort, for their physical and emotional healing. I pray that You provide for them and give them shelter under Your mighty wings. I pray that You bring all those that do not yet know You into Your magnificent light, that You show them who You are, and that they all come to salvation through your Son Jesus Christ. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
