Mt 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
“From the days of John the Baptist until the now moment the kingdom of the heavens is being violently forced, and spiritually violent and forceful people snatch it for themselves as the price of plunder or treasure.”
During a season of spiritual warfare, God brought back this truth.
Eph 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
Heavenly places are chock full of infinite, unfathomable and immeasurable riches. Heaven is full of money. It’s also full of healing, freedom, solutions and breakthroughs. It’s full of power and God’s glory.
In warfare recently, I had to pray and command countless time before an answer came. For half an hour it seemed like the demon would not let go. The attack got worse and worse. Suddenly God came through. I entered a realm of revelation where all that I needed and much more God was giving. The more I pressed in, the more that came. The more I believed, the more that I accessed. It was nonstop. It was infinite.
I found the joy of warring and breaking in the Spirit.
The abundance of heaven is far beyond what’s on earth. Yet, it’s locked up in God’s mysteries, opposed by the devil, and in the spirit realm of heaven’s places.
Heaven’s riches can only be plundered by spiritually violent people.
To those who press into heaven in prayer, the Word, and in spirit led obedience, they will tap these treasures.
Heavens bounty is not for the faint of heart, but it’s worth it.
The great scheme of the devil is to attack believers with passivity. Watchman Nee, the great Chinese apostle whose books on walking in the Spirit I recommend said that the church is sunk in a passive mind and a passive state. Passivity, and complacency are direct attacks of the Evil One. If you are passive you will not gather the spoils of heaven.
The other strategy is entertainment , the love potion of Western nations. If you will enter heaven you can’t be entertained by the earth.
Christians must be soldiers of the spirit, militant in spiritual warfare, and consumed with Jesus.
If we do not see the kingdom of God as something that must be violently forced into by the Spirit, we will not tap its infinite bounties. We will stay dry and poverty stricken
My father says. “ For everything in life there is a price to pay. The greater the thing, the greater the price.
The price of accessing God’s kingdom is high, but its reward is the salvation of the world.
I challenge you to try it for yourself and see if what I say is not true.
