Spiritual Battle Skill – Back to Basics

When you go to the market to buy food produce; do you buy everything you see at the market? The obvious answer is NO! Why? Because -you don’t need everything, you don’t have space for everything and finally, you only pick the best ‘fruits’ that are not rotten. This must be applied in your spiritual life; for is not everything you see around or hear related to Christianity is from our True God- The enemy is at work- Our Commander in Chief Jesus Christ [Yeshua] has warned us that, false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect [Matthew 24:24]; and that we should be on our guard against these people- for they will come to us in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves ;we will however, know those sent by Him by their fruits [Matthew 7:15-20].

To be a soldier – The most important of all values is to be ready to learn from your commander; then you can be able to put into practice skills learnt – all other elements of soldiering is built on the application of basic skills. When you start a new job, School, University, or join any organization, you are given set of rules, guidance or procedures to follow. We all do everything possible to follow these, so we don’t loose our position, be ‘fired’ or sacked. In warfare, often times you need to have easily accessible set of rules of engagement with the enemy. If you’re not prepared, you could be overwhelmed should you come under attack. The only standard guidance as soldiers of Yeshua is the Bible. Do you read your bible everyday to be prepared for the invisible battle we face all the time non-stop? The basic standards for our salvation are all found in the Bible- the Ten Commandments; believing Yeshua is the son of God and that, by His blood you’re saved, repentance, becoming born again and baptism of the Holy Spirit-“for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” [Romans 3:23].

The Bible says sin is violating the Ten Commandments—so why has the law been described as irrelevant and old-fashioned by many modern theologians? The simple answer is that the enemy is at work. Don’t be deceived. Most church leaders, Pastors and all the other self-titled leaders are leading so many people astray- remember hell is real. …God, “with whom there is no variation or the shadow of turning” does not change – [James 1:17] -The LORD of Armies has not changed… [Malachi 3:6]; I know that everything God does will last forever; there’s no adding to it or taking from it … [Ecclesiastes 3:14]. 

So, what happened to the sabbath day – which is few minutes before sunset on Friday evening until the appearance of three stars in the sky on Saturday night? This has since been observed by the Jews whilst in the dessert heading to the promise land (Israel) till this day; if this Law were to be changed, it would be reasonable to expect God Himself to announce it, and give reasons for its alteration don’t you think? Jesus Christ said, “…I have kept My Father’s commandments and remained in His Love” [John 15:10]. The women who went to anoint Yeshua’s body after Crucifixion “rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment” – [Luke 23:56 ]. Yeshua said, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law of the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled” [Matthew 5:17-18]; Yet for more than 2,000 years now, most Christians have worshiped on Sunday. 

The book of Daniel described a “little horn power” – He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time.“‘But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever [Daniel 7:25-26]. Apostle Paul made a similar prediction: “Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God, or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God” [2 Thessalonians 2:3-7]. Apostle Paul also warned- this blasphemy was already at work, and that, it would not come from an outside influence alone, but also within the church [Acts 20:28-30].  

About 100 years before Christianity, Egyptian Mithraists introduced the festival of Sunday, dedicated to worshiping the sun, into the Roman Empire. Later, as Christianity grew, church leaders wished to increase the numbers of the church. In order to make the gospel more attractive to non-Christians, pagan customs were incorporated into the church’s ceremonies. The custom of Sunday worship was welcomed by Christians who desired to differentiate themselves from the Jews, whom they despised because of the Jews’ rejection of the Saviour at the time. The Roman emperor Constantine, a ‘former sun-worshiper’, professed conversion to Christianity, though his subsequent actions suggest the “conversion” was more of a political move than a genuine heart change. Constantine named himself Bishop of the Church and enacted the first civil law regarding Sunday observance in A.D. 321. 

Pope Francis approved changes to words of Lord’s Prayer also known as the ‘Our Father’, Published Jun 6, 2019. Instead of saying, “Lead us not into temptation,” we will now say, “Do not let us fall into temptation,” this is because “It is not a good translation ,it speaks of a God who induces temptation”. A Loving Father doesn’t do that; a Father helps their child to get up immediately when they fall. It’s the enemy that leads us into temptation, that’s ‘his works’. The Lord’s Prayer comes from the Gospels in which Jesus taught his disciples the prayer. It is among the most sacred prayers in both Catholicism and Christianity. The enemy (‘the World Order’) has been at work over several centuries, standardizing the way we worship God instead of the Holy Spirit direction; translating and changing God’s commandments over and over so the real truth is lost. Jesus Christ told Peter, you are a rock, and on this rock foundation I will build my church, and not even the gates of hell will ever be able to overcome it [Matthew 16:18]. If this change in translation can now happen –everything the enemy has manipulated and changed will be reverted by Yeshua; Brother and sisters, victory is already here.

Now you know the truth and the significance going back to the basics for your salvation; Don’t be fooled and deceived  – read your Bible daily and seek the truth yourself ;Jesus Christ said, “If you continue in my word, you really are my disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free ”[John 8:31‭-‬32]. ;follow the ten commandments; Observe the sabbath, because this day rest remains for God’s people [Hebrews 4:9]; meditate on the Lord’s prayer for is a powerful medium with our Lord Adonai -thought by our commander in chief Himself Yeshua- don’t destroy your soul going around different churches trying to learn how to pray -speak in tongues and looking for ‘quick solutions’ to your afflictions- allow the Holy Spirit that lives in you to guide you to pray- the enemy also speaks in tongues and is ‘destructive’ –Don’t you yourselves know that you are God’s temple and that the spirit of God lives in you? [1 Corinthians 3:16].  Yeshua said the whole commandments is summed up in this sentence -You are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your understanding; and your neighbour as yourself- [Luke 10:27]. If you love God you will follow HIS commandment’s.  

Prayer Point  

Oh, Holy spirit – Open my eyes and ears, so that -I don’t fall for things of this world, for when YOU bestow a blessing our Lord God, it is forever; have mercy on me in Jesus Christ name I pray; Amen
