Commentary By: Gordon King
I have been under heavy spiritual attack for several months now and it just doesn’t seem to be letting up. Attack after attack the darkness surrounds me, blow after blow, swing after swing, fiery arrow after fiery arrow!
I have taken notice of something which seems out of the ordinary, I have noticed a pattern, a pattern of events which are unnatural, in fact they are supernatural!
After being attacked for a while I am pulled out of the darkness supernaturally by God, in fact not just pulled out but also blessed by God, miraculously! Then again I am surrounded by darkness and the process repeats itself, over and over again for the past four or five months now. It is absolutely amazing to see the Lord at work in my life this way, not so much the darkness, but to see God working in my life is a true blessing!
I don’t like being surrounded by darkness, nor do I really like sensing the darkness around me, but I know that it is for my own good, and that the good Lord is with me at all times. I also know that being close to God I will sense the darkness in the world, I will be sensitive to the things of the spirit, both good spirits but also evil spirits. My discernment will increase, and I will be able to make sound judgments.
“My son, if you receive my words,
And treasure my commands within you,
2 So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
3 Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
4 If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
5 Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
8 He guards the paths of justice,
And preserves the way of His saints.
9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice,
Equity and every good path.“
“But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.“
“Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,
And the Lord listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the Lord
And who meditate on His name.
17 “They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My jewels.
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”
18 Then you shall again discern
Between the righteous and the wicked,
Between one who serves God
And one who does not serve Him.“
I know that these things keep happening to me in repetition for a reason, that the good Lord is speaking to me, and that He is trying to tell me something. I can look at it from the lens of being attacked over and over again by demonic forces which seek my demise and leave it at that, or I can see it from a heavenly perspective, from God’s view, that the Lord is always with me and will never forsake me, that He will make all things work together for my good! I choose the latter of the two options. But I sense that there is more to it than that.
I believe that the Lord is also sending me another message and I’m not quite sure yet just what it is. Perhaps He is warning me of coming disaster, of impending doom upon the world, perhaps it is the increase of evil in and upon the world, and perhaps it is even the closeness of the rapture of the church! I sense that He is preparing me for something coming. Whatever it is I shall be in prayer about it, seeking God’s wisdom, seeking His answers, seeking His face.
Patterns in life, they don’t just happen by chance nor are they happenstance, they all happen for a reason, whether good or bad. They could be of our own doing, or they could be supernatural. Whatever the case may be we should sit up and take notice.
This present age is evil and it is quickly becoming more evil, we are living in perilous times my friends. Satan is real and his demons are real, they are carrying out their wicked schemes upon the world, and they are certainly not happy with God’s precious children.
Let us remember Job, Satan took what belonged to Job, his children, his home, his livelihood, but then God restored it all back to Job, in fact even more! This is the pattern that I have seen taking place in my life also although not quite as dramatic. Satan steals and God restores with even more! It is miraculous!
Please pray for me, pray for the good Lord to give me wisdom, to show me the meaning of His message to me. Pray for Him to make things clear, to give me a better heavenly perspective.
Jesus Christ, my Savior, my Protector, my Comforter, He will never leave me nor forsake me!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
