There is a spirit of death over our nation and people. And the alarming thing is that many do not see it, but nevertheless, it is here. And it is working hard against us in these last days. Perhaps when we do not realize the connection between the physical realm and the spirit realm, we don't understand the root of the problem; therefore, we try to fight our battles in the flesh, but they are won in the spirit.
In my latest work, Conquering the Spirit of Death, I deal with the many ways it is attacking us and our loved ones today. But more importantly, I teach you through the Word how to conquer this spirit of death. But before I share with you the how-to, I feel it is important that we consider some of the ways it is attacking us today. (Author's Note: The following is an excerpt from Conquering the Spirit of Death, Chapter 1, "The Spirit of Death," pp. 8-9).
It is very evident to me that today many are in need of this teaching as well. This week alone, the prayer requests from my readers are filled with distress calls for deliverance and healing from the spirit of death that is rising against them in many forms.
God's people are crying out for deliverance from a spirit of suicide, for encouragement and a reason not to abort their children and for divine intervention and protection from near deadly attacks from abusive family members and demon-possessed strangers.
Many others are seeking help to heal from the last stages of breast cancer, prostate cancer, kidney failure, and rare and incurable diseases.
The news is filled with disasters that are sweeping the lives of hundreds and thousands off this earth and into an eternity in hell with no hope of escape. And not so popular in the news, whether it be Christian or secular sources, is the onslaught of persecution of our Christian brothers and sisters around the world who are being martyred for their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
As followers of Jesus, how do we respond? How do we go beyond just mere survival in these last days and step into the promise that we are more than conquerors, and actually defeat and conquer the spirit of death?
God wants us to know how to conquer this spirit of death. He wants us to have His full revelation concerning our victory in Christ. His Word so beautifully tells us in 2 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV), "Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place."
Dearest Holy Spirit,
You are our teacher, and we ask You to diffuse the fragrance of Your knowledge in every place so that we might triumph in Christ. Glory be to God in the manifestation of this revelation in our lives that we are more than conquerors, including victory over the spirit of death. In the mighty name of Jesus we pray, amen.
