Join the Battle: Stand Firm in Faith Against Darkness!

Join the Battle: Stand Firm in Faith Against Darkness!

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." - Ephesians 6:12

Standing Firm in Faith: A Call to Spiritual Warfare

As I reflect on my life, my ministry, and the guiding principles of my company, one resounding truth echoes through: We are engaged in a relentless, intense battle against the kingdom of darkness. This battle is not a mere reaction to the enemy's aggressions; it is an active, determined war that we wage against his illegitimate authority and malign influence in this world.

Who Shall Stand Against the Lord?

Who dares to challenge the sovereignty of our Lord God and seek worship for themselves? The answer is clear: demonic and satanic spirits, along with Satan himself, who aim to usurp the divine authority. However, their fate is sealed, destined to be cast down before the mighty throne of God. And until that glorious day of reckoning, my life and my work serve as a constant reminder to these forces of darkness of their inevitable downfall.

The Role of Christians in Spiritual Warfare

Too often, Christians perceive themselves as weak soldiers, merely holding the line in a defensive stance in this cosmic battle. However, this perspective overlooks the dynamic, powerful role we are called to play. We must remember the Lord our God, stand tall with courage, and arm ourselves with His powerful Word. Our eyes should be firmly set on the Lord, not in fear, but with the resolve to overcome and conquer the enemy, because the war has already been won! We only need to come into alignment and agreement with what has already been FINISHED!

Our battle is not one of uncertainty or despair; it is a battle fought from the position of victory. As believers, we are not scrambling for triumph; we are enforcing it. This change in perspective is crucial. It shifts us from a mindset of defense to one of offense. We are not merely resisting; we are reclaiming, occupying, and establishing the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in Heaven.

The victory was sealed on the Cross. Now, our fight is to walk in that victory, to manifest it in our lives, and to bring others into the glorious freedom and truth of Christ. It's time for us to step up as warriors equipped and empowered by God, taking our stand and advancing the Kingdom with every step of faith.

So, let’s embrace our identity as mighty warriors in Christ. The battle cry has sounded; the victory is ours. Let's march forward with confidence, proclaiming His truth and demonstrating His power in every area of our lives.

The Spirit of God Within Us

The Spirit of God is not a dormant force within us; it is alive, vibrant, and ever-ready to aid in the deliverance of His people. If we could only perceive the readiness of God to act on our behalf, our approach to spiritual challenges would be transformed.

Embracing the Fire for Deeper Faith

Do not fear the trials and tribulations, the metaphorical fires we must walk through. These experiences serve to deepen our understanding of God's faithfulness. Emerging from these trials, our faith is stronger, our conviction firmer.

Reclaiming Our Divine Inheritance

The time is now to take back the territory that rightfully belongs to the Lord. This is not just a call to action; it is a divine mandate. We, as followers of Christ, are to reclaim what is His by defeating the darkness with the light of His truth.

Let us stand united in this spiritual warfare, armed with faith, bolstered by His Word, and inspired by the Holy Spirit. We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:37). My life, until my last breath, is dedicated to this spiritual battle. I encourage each of you to join in this fight with conviction and strength. Together, let's shine as beacons of His light in a world overshadowed by darkness.

Pause to Reflect:

As we each face our daily battles, both seen and unseen, I invite you to pause and reflect. How are you engaging in this spiritual warfare? Are you standing firm in your faith, armed with the Word of God, and moving forward with the confidence that comes from knowing Him?

Consider the ways you can actively participate in reclaiming the territory for the Kingdom of God. Reflect on the power of the Spirit within you and how you can use your gifts, your voice, and your life to make a difference in this ongoing battle.

I urge you to take a moment today to ponder your role in this divine narrative. How will you rise to the call of being a warrior for Christ? Share your thoughts, your commitments, and your prayers with our community, as we join hands in this critical mission.

Together, let's inspire and encourage each other to walk in faith, stand in truth, and fight the good fight. Your reflections and insights are valuable; they not only bolster your own faith journey but also serve to strengthen our collective resolve.

    Wonderfully written! We are blessed by our heavenly Father everyday, through the little things and big things. My problem is i try to fix things and then pray. So glad He created me and knows me. I could save myself from a lot of worry and angst by just turning it over to Him! Your ministry is straight from the Father. Each picture says it all without saying a word. They give people something to think about and maybe even ask about! Keep up your wonderful work! You are blessed from above!

    This time of year is so hard and sometimes unbearable but with our precious savior he makes it possible to look forward to another day. My nephew at the age of 39 was murdered by the sovereign citizens. He was on the police department and working for his dad who was the Chief of Police. The only way my family has survived is by God’s grace and mercy. He is so good and faithful. Thank you for your beautiful paintings as I have bought several. I want the painting from John 4 about the Samaritan woman at the well. That is my story as well. Please let me know how I can purchase it. Vanessa you are truly a gift from God that has changed so many people’s lives. Thank you for all you do and I pray God will continue to bless and sustain you.

    Dear Vanessa, thank you for your encouraging words of truth and faith. I am part of a ministry who goes to women’s prison to give bible study to these forgotten women. We encounter many obstacles just to get in most times. But we can’t be deterred as we claim God’s sovereignty and proclaim Jesus’ blood will cover us and protect us from the evil territory we are entering. He gives us the strength to continue to serve Him as we serve these women to endure in their surrounding. Their bodies may be in chains, but their spirit is free and they can feel God’s love and mercy to carry on. I consider it a great privilege and blessing to my life to be allowed to serve Him in my 70’s. May God continue to bless you with your amazing gift!
