We desire to walk in the manifested blessings of God, and God desires this as well. This is His plan for each and every one of us. But we also have an enemy, Satan, who fights against us to prevent us from moving into and living in the kingdom of God. And yet we are given everything necessary to get there. Let's see what the Scriptures have to say about taking the kingdom of God by force and talk a bit about it.
"Truly I say to you, among those who are born of women, there has risen no one greater than John the Baptist. But he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has forcefully advanced, and the strong take it by force. For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John" (Matt. 11:11-13).
"The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing their way into it" (Luke 16:16, NIV).
What is being said here to us in these two Scripture passages is that we have a decision to make. Entering into the kingdom of God is not easy. There is an evil force that works against us and tries to prevent us from entering into the promises of God. But God's people need to be equally forceful in this battle and activate our faith, and even fight the enemy with our supernatural weapons of faith.
With our son's amazing healing testimony—that I share with you in detail in DARE to Believe, chapter 11, pages 175-193—we had to take Marcos' healing by force. The spirit of death was not willing to let go of him. But we activated every weapon of faith given to us, and we raised him from the dead and recreated all his vital organs by prophetic healing power. And because we did not back down, we won. He is alive and well.
Word of the Lord
The Spirit of the Lord would say to you again, "I have heard your longing to move in this gift of healing, and it is for you too. You take this message that I bring before you, devour it and let your words produce for My glory in these last days."
