Ark in the storm
really a difference between intercessors and prayer warriors or are
they really the same?
seems to me that we are getting muddled by terminologies instead of
seeing how the two fuse together as one.
A warrior is a
person that is going to war against an enemy and learns to use
different weopons in the battle, yet a lawyer
goes out there to
battle for their client to intercede on their behalf.
So a prayer
warrior uses different spiritual gifts including intercession and the
Word of God on one side to battle against Satan and what he is doing
and on the other side to plead to God to reveal Himself through the
Holy Spirit and bring salvation to the one who really is the victim of
Satan's terror and deception.
The Holy Spirit
comes on our side to make intercession for us with groanings and
utterances that we do not know or understand, yet they are effective to
casting down of great strongholds.
But it is expected
that we come in faith believing what God has said in His Word (the Word
being our sword).
We seem to forget
that while we are on this earth we are being tested and trained by God
for service in Heaven.
Now as in any
school we can either get on and learn all we can, or we can muck up and
fill our lives with other things.
God does not tempt
us but He tests us for our obedience.
Therefore we need
to come into obedience to what God is instructing us to do through the
Holy Spirit, more often or not we go about doing it our way, and we see
some success and lots of failure.
We need to take
our eyes off what the Devil is doing and turn our eyes upon Jesus and
follow in His footsteps by doing it the way He has shown us.
Fear of failure
(used by Satan) often stops us from doing it God's way, as we focus on
what we are and not on who God is.
Then again we may
fear that God being so holy will not listen to the likes of us, but
that is another lie straight from Satan.
Then I see people
blaming God if there is a failure and not blaming themselves in that
they did not believe God, when Satan is the one that was doing the
destruction and not God.
Therefore we are
to get up again and get on with the fight and not let Satan keep us in
a state of feeling permantly defeated.
Yes Satan will
also come at us to say that we are full of pride, and that what we are
doing is out of a haughty and high minded spirit, and not of God.
But all the time
Satan is decieving us into taking no action so that his victims are
dragged into Hell with him.
It is quite clear
that we are in a battle when we pray and intercede and as such we are
both intercessors and prayer warriors at the same time.
The rainbow of God's promise after the storm.
