You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
I woke up today thinking that it’s time we sing new songs and I believe we need to sing songs of Deliverance. Deliverance and Healing is the Children’s bread (Matthew 15:25-27 ; Mark 7:27). I’ve been reading a book called Let Our Children Go! by Rebecca Greenwood that was recommended to me by a friend and it covers many topics that deal with the demonic and occultic influences that are harming and influencing our present generation. I’ve learned quite a lot in that book and totally recommend every parent to go get that book if they see their children struggling with things that seem beyond their control. It will seriously sharpen your discernment and give you some spiritual insight on how to effectively pray for your children.
If this book had been written years ago, I think I would have benefited greatly from it had I known what in the world I was dealing with when I was growing up. I suffered a lot of spiritual oppression in my dream life as I was growing up as a kid and I also suffered from supernatural physical attacks that were unexplainable to both me and my grandparents although they had some suspicions that it was occult related. There were certain distant relatives and so-called family acqaintances and friends that actively participated in the practice of witchcraft and the occult behind closed doors unbeknownst to us and when I discovered their true nature it explained a lot of things that I was suffering from since the day I was born. This is why it is important to seek knowledge in order to understand what it is that you are dealing with so that you will know how to pray effectively with wisdom and discernment in regards to intercession rather than praying in vain constantly missing the target in your prayers because of a lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6).
When I got saved, I was hungry for knowledge regarding healing and deliverance after reading certain books that my mom gave me that revealed what it was exactly that I was suffering from. The one book I read that contributed to me giving up my life to Jesus at the age of 15 was from Dr. Rebecca Brown MD called He Came to set the Captives Free. That book changed my life forever. Ever since I was set free from the stuff I was being oppressed by, my passion has been in the area of healing and deliverance specifically. I’m still reading many books on the topic because there is soo much to learn regarding it and considering how society is always changing every 10 years, you will discover that the methods to trap children in cycles of oppression are becoming more subtle and more devious as the days get evil, so it is important to constantly be in a state where you are up to date with knowledge in order to deal with the new things that are popping up to trap the new genearation into new forms of bondages. Other books by Rebecca Brown MD are Prepare for War, Vessels of Honor, and Unbroken Curses (which I highly recommend…hmm. I seem to highly recommend a lot of books lol 😀 ).
When I received my deliverance, I was sooooo blessed of God, that inside me, I wished that I had known all about this stuff earlier. Now my greatest desire as a worshiper is to see other people set free from bondage and chains of injustices brought upon by strongholds that are in their lives. God wants to see His Children set free from demonic oppression and generational curses so that we become what God intended us to be, and that is a victorious Spiritual Warfaring Church as the Bride of Christ. Sometimes people suffer many of these types of things I have described here because they lack information of what they are truly dealing with here, so get read up on the topic of deliverance if you want to see healing and household salvation come into your homes. You have to do something practical if you want to see things happen supernatural. I think at some point I will list some great books on deliverance later on depending on how many people respond and inquire about it in days to come. I’m still a student on the topic of deliverance and I can tell you that my prayer life has changed dramatically as I continue to read on and gain more knowledge. Knowledge is power people. That’s why it is necessary to gain it if you want to be victorious.
The Lord is impressing upon my heart that we need to sing new songs as of late. The title of my post is not a miss-spelling. I deliberately entitled it War-ship and not worship because worship is a type of warfare weapon that is not carnal but is Mighty through God in the pulling down of strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:4). We can praise our way through our Red sea situations as we cross over to the other side from captivity into freedom and safety;We can also praise our Jericho walls down with a mighty shout of victory; We can be like Gideon holding a trumpet in one hand and a torch in another entering into battle and literally war-shiping our way into victory! Praise is our weapon so let us wear garments of Praise.
Worship is a supernatural activity of warfare that manifests victories in the natural. It is not a sing-a-song-that-tickles-my-fancy type of concert. We must learn to revere our God when we War-ship Him because He is a Holy God. Unfortunately, we take worship for granted and that is why some churches remain bound by demonic influences in their congregations becuase they don’t understand how powerful worship really is. If the Church only knew…we would be a force to be reckoned with.
We need to change our outlook on Praise and Worship and really start to make it be what it was intended for. I believe that healing and deliverance should take place every time we are engaged in an atmosphere of praise and worship. Why do some churches experience healing and deliverance and others don’t? It’s because we don’t understand our weapons of warfare. We don’t seem to understand the battle we are in every time we enter into God Courts of Praise. Where God is, Victory follows; Where God is, healing comes; Where God is, Deliverance is possible; Where God is, we become WHOLE; Where God is, we become Sons of GOD. Do you understand where I’m going with this?
So today, Fix your eyes on Jesus , the Author and Finisher of our FAITH (Hebrews 12:2)and consider that we need to step our game up in WAR-SHIP WORSHIP. Pick up the full armor of GOD and WAR-SHIP with Victory in mind. God seeks those who will Worship Him in Spirit and in TRUTH. Seek to do this and you’ll see amazing things happen as you enter into His courts with Praise and thanksgiving. Miracles are always present in Worship, AMEN!
I have a song here by Rotoya Williams called Songs of Deliverance. May it bless you all today Everybody!
Scriptures to Meditate
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
1 Chronicles 16:29
Give to the LORD the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come before Him. Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness!
Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.
Let all be put to shame who serve carved images, Who boast of idols. Worship Him, all you gods.
Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him, and they have frustrated the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they should not serve nor worship any god except their own God!
The LORD will be awesome to them, For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth; People shall worship Him, Each one from his place, Indeed all the shores of the nations.
Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.’”
And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”
3 Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.
