Spiritual Warfare, 2021

 
I recently reviewed the blessing of Abraham, after he had obeyed the Lord's command to offer Isaac, his only-begotten son, as a burnt offerin (Heb. - olah).
Gen 22:15  And the Angel of Jehovah called to Abraham out of the heavens the second time,
Gen 22:16  and said, I have sworn by Myself, says Jehovah; because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only one;
Gen 22:17  that in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. And your Seed shall possess the gate of His enemies.
Gen 22:18  And in your Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.


I am not a linguistic scholar, but I get the impression that as believers in Yeshua Messiah we have the right and obligation to join Messiah in possession the gate of Messiah's enemies.

As a result I have been taking possession of the gates of Messiah's enemies in His Name, and taking them captive to His obedience pursuant to 2 Corinthians 10:5:

2Co 10:4  For the weapons of our warfare are not those of the world. Instead, they have the power of God to demolish fortresses. We tear down arguments
2Co 10:5  and every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God, taking every thought captive in order to obey the Messiah.

So I wanted to share this impression with you, dear reader, to evaluate prayerfully to determine what, if anything, our Lord Yeshua/Jesus wants you to do concerning these passages of Scripture.

I believe that this faith action is particularly important and necessary in light of the building in recent years of arches of Baal, which appear to be gates of darkness into our various societies.

I believe that God wants us to participate in His war against the domain of darkness in the same way that He wants us to participate in our own salvation by personally appropriating the victory which our Lord and Savior accomplished on the cross for us to give us the ability to choose to call upon Him for salvation from our sins and the domain of darkness and to receive Him as our new Source of Life and Abundance which He came for us who believe to have.
