Spiritual Warfare

I am not sure if this a controversial subject or not and if it is, that is not where I am going with this, but simply sharing personal encounter with spiritual warfare.

As I have become deeper in my faith and saying "Yes." to what the Lord has called me out to do... today I have experienced the unseen fight and hate satan has against us as the very image of God and the very perfection of His masterpiece. Satan hates all human beings and He is out to destroy. And what satan hates even more is the very image of God living out the life of faith that only the Lord could produce.

There is a lot going on in our household as the Lord has called us to partner with other like-minded followers of Chtist to plant a church and to boldly go out and proclaim the Truth. He has called me to partner and walk aside ministries to battle the darkness of sex trafficking and sex explotation. As we have walked in faith and pushing against what has become so normal in our society our family is and has been targeted. Though it is not me being targeted directly it is happening through the littlest and most innocent of all... My children. Which in the end targets me the most. 

My youngest is being targeted with the unknown feelings of anxiety. She has absolutely no idea how to handle these overwhelming feelings, so she lashes out in tears and rage. Just yesterday I realized this is not her... This is satan trying to weasel his way in trying to tear us down, but what he doesn't understand is the power of the Holy Spirit that resides in this house, the power of the blood that has been prayed over this house and my family, the power of prayer through Truth and love that covers this house, and the power of Jesus that will over take the dark one. I know satan knows this and I hope he trembles when he thinks of the Greene family.

After realizing what was really the core of all of this... I began to share with a few church members and with some Jesus friends, who get and understand this battle as they are fighting the same fight. This morning was covered by the power of the Holy Spirit! His presence was felt and calmness covered our minds and hearts. Jesus is BIG and he cares for the godly in such a way our minds could never understand.

To Him be the glory and honor and praise forever and ever!

“Give your burdens to the Lord, and He will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall." Psalm 55:13

Freedom Bell

"Lord, I am ringing the freedom bell! Lord, Can you hear it? Father, bring down the freedom!" 

Today my heart is crying out FREEDOM! I am over the bondage of sex slavery! Completely over it! It sickens me to the core. It makes me so angry that there are men here in Houston this week for an Oil Training Conference and girls are being brought in just because the demand of sex will be high this week. I am sick! I am crying in tears! I am angry! There are faces etched into my mind that I have seen on backpage... Short conversations I have had with girls that I could have been bolder toward... I pray and pray they will call the Rescue Houston Helpline and want out! I cry for those chains... to break! I pray they will hear His roaring small voice tell them how much they are worth and how much He desires a better life for them through His unending never faltering love. I pray He will bring them visions of what they will become through Him. "God ring the Justice bell!"

Carrie Underwood has come out with a new song called "Something in the Water." It is beautiful and bring tears of joy to my face everytime I hear it. The part I love most is a prayer that rings in my heart...

"Well, I heard what he said and I went on my way...
Didn't think about it for a couple of days
Then it hit me like a lightning late one night...
I was all out of hope and all out of fight

Couldn't fight back the tears so I fell on my knees...
Saying, "God, if you're there come and rescue me."
Felt love pouring down from above
Got washed in the water, washed in the blood and now I'm changed
And now I'm stronger."

I feel it deep in my heart that the Freedom Bell is going to ring loud really soon and satan is going to fight like hell to ruin us all, but He won't win! The ones who are strong in faith will not wither, but depend on only the One that lives in us. It is going to be HARD, but He is going to ring that bell and break those chains and FREEDOM will ring! 

For now I prepare, pray, and put my hope in FREEDOM He will bring!
