OUR MISSION IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD
PART 7C: WALKING IN OBEDIENCE

John S. Torell

August 31, 2003

The message from God given to me at this time, is a somber, soul searching, fearful one, that can be likened to a roaring forest fire, that when it is hot and the wind is blowing hard and it becomes clear that no man can outrun this red-hot roaring hell fire. The Rise of the Antichrist is near AND TIME SHALL SOON BE NO MORE FOR THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST AS AN ORGANIZED FIGHTING UNIT AGAINST THE FORCES OF THE SATANIC KINGDOM!

  1. A BACKSLIDDEN CHRISTIAN WILL FIRST START TO LIE TO HIMSELF!
  2. THEN HE WILL START LYING TO OTHERS!
  3. THEN HE WILL START LYING TO GOD!

A backslidden Christian does not want to attend prayer meetings! Neither does he want to read the Bible, pray for himself or witness to others about Christ. He will lose the joy of the Lord, become angry, cranky, miserable, irritated and heaping criticism on those who are still walking with Christ! Eventually he will drop out of church completely, citing his great excuse: I CANNOT STAND ALL THESE HYPOCRITES IN THE CHURCH, NOT REALIZING THAT HE IS THE BIGGEST HYPOCRITE OF THEM ALL! James 3:8-18

This condition brings great joy to the Devil and all his fallen angels and grief to our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Ghost!

THE SPIRIT OF ERROR I John 4:6

This is a powerful class of demons, and are extremely difficult to detect. They work in secrecy, using a number of other classes of demons to cover them, and making it almost impossible to detect them. "Flying cover" for these evil spirits are religious spirits, spirits of sentimentality, spirits of guilt, spirits of offense, spirits of approval, and spirits of recognition.

OVERCOMING AN ATTITUDE

Before the Army of God can attack the evil forces of the Devil, Godís soldiers must be "cleansed and healed" from their infirmities. This is a mission that Jesus came to start. Luke 4:28-44

If a person does not know that he has a problem, there will be no solutions for him. Luke 4:18-21

OUR ASSETS IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD

The power of God on this earth has not decreased - Hebrews 13:5-9; Deuteronomy 31:6; Joshua 1:5
And it will not change, even during the time of tribulation -
II Thessalonians 2:1-8
The Word of God will stand until the end of this earth!
Matthew 5:17-19
On the contrary- the power of God shall increase toward the end times - Joel 2:28-32

WALKING IN OBEDIENCE

Every human being has a weakness, which is exploited by Satan and his demons. Human EMOTIONS are the GATEWAY to the soul of a human being!

Evil spirits have three approaches to alter the emotions of a person:

  1. Entice the person into rebellion against God

  2. Upsetting a person by events, insults, offense, accident, disaster or any other kind of injury, like unkind treatment from someone or unfair behavior, etc.

  3. The third approach is through alcohol or other drugs: Proverbs 23:29-35; Revelation 18:23
     


WALKING IN OBEDIENCE - 3

ROOTING OUT HIDDEN ANGER!

The apostles Paul and Barnabas had been together for many years, when they became so angry with one another, that they parted as enemies - Acts 15:36-41

The Bible does not tell us how God dealt with Barnabas, but it is recorded the price that Paul had to pay : Acts 16:16-28

My Prophetic Dream:

Our church was on a picnic. I was playing some kind of ball game with three of the young people in our church. Jordan and Wesley played against Joshua and I. Jordan and Wesley outplayed us, and I became angry. I looked around and found a large watermelon. I picked it up and aimed for Jordanís head, and the watermelon hit him hard on his head, and I saw Jordan fall to the ground in great pain. It looked like his skull had been cracked. Being the pastor, I am not supposed to become angry. First I tried to put a spin on the situation, saying that it was an accident. I knew I had to pray for Jordan to be healed, people expected that from the pastor, but inside I knew I was phony and that I had done this on purpose. Emotions were running high inside me, and I knew that I was guilty of hurting one of my members in the church. Finally, I had to confess my wickedness to the congregation so I could pray for Jordan. This dream was repeated as I woke up, and God made it clear to me, to go over it in my mind so that I would not forget the details as I was waking up, since He wanted this message to be preached this Sunday.

I received this dream on the morning of August 30, 2003

During the many picnics and games over the years, I have never become angry or had feelings like this.

Jesus set up his own standard of laws, to make it possible for a man to control the Gateway to his emotions:

  1. Meet injustice with love and meekness - Matthew 5:38-48

  2. Live in forgiveness day and night - Matthew 18:21-35

  3. Remember, you own nothing on this earth. It all belongs to God. Naked you came into this world, and naked shall you leave. You and I are managers and Jesus very clearly told his apostles how they should act as managers - John 13:1-17

  4. The apostle Peter passed on the teaching of Jesus - I Peter 2:11-23

These four points are known as a spiritual law: DYING TO SELF! Galatians 2:16-21

Remember this: If you are not receiving proper sleep, or if your body is physically out of balance, it will affect your emotions and weaken your will-power. Once your will-power is weakened, you have lost control of your emotions. James 1:6-8

Coming to the point of deliverance from evil spirits is hard, but for the believers in Christ to stay clean and maintain the deliverance is a long hard road that will last, until the day Jesus takes you home to heaven. Ephesians 6:10-18

God has made it possible for us to stand, and having stood, to stand until our mission is finished on this earth! Hebrews 11:32-40; 12:1-4

To him that has an ear, let him hear!
