It’s still early in my fast, but I have had some amazing experiences with God already. In my worship yesterday, I felt God opening up the eyes of my heart/eyes of my spirit (Ephesians 1:18) even more. I began to see in the supernatural. An incredible fear overtook me with the realization that at any time or given moment, I am surrounded by both angels and demons. A new reality of my need for God overtook me as I realized that the spirit realm is much larger and more significant than the natural realm.
A religious spirit which is not of God wants us to reject this realization. The occult world has known, accepted, and operated in this spirit realm, but ALL POWER comes from God. The occult world is twisting this power and using it for their own will and not to do the will of God. Jesus said that He is the door into the kingdom of God. He is the door into the power of God, the 4th dimension, and the spirit realm. In the same chapter (John 10), he says that He that enters in not by the door but climbs in some other way, the same is a thief or a robber. The occult has climbed into this realm through another way and taken hold, stolen some of this power.
It is the same as in the old testament, where the pharoah’s magicians and soothsayers exercised in a certain amount of power. But the power of God knows no end. According to Ephesians 2:6, He has made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. This means that we are seated with Him in authority. We have all authority in the spirit realm (Eph 1:19-22) if we are completely submitted to God and His will.
Think about it! It’s an amazing realization. Do not let the spirit of religion deceive you. The spirit realm is very real. Anything that you have heard of or know of occurring in the occult world or in the world of magic is just a small measure and a twisting of God’s power. The spirit world is in full blown operation all around you. Right now, you are in the midst of heavenly (angelic and demonic) armies. And you, who are the sons of God, have all authority in this realm for you are seated with Christ (Eph 1:19-22).
