In Jesus’ Name I Will Possess The Land
We’ve just completed our New Year’s 21 Days of Fasting & Prayer this past Sunday asking, Lord, take us where we’ve never been before in taking new territory for the kingdom of God. What a thrill it was to anoint and pray with Pastor Shamoon & Robina Munir and their church family as they launch our new campus ministry, PPT South Asian Fellowship for the expressed purpose of taking new territory in Brampton and reaching the souls of men, women, and children for Jesus Christ!
Just a reminder that the last Wednesday of every month is our regular monthly day of fasting and prayer. So this month, our prayer theme is to possess the land, in Jesus name! The biblical basis for this is found in Joshua, where he declares: Today you will know that the living God is among you. He will surely drive out the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites, and Jebusites ahead of you (Joshua 3:10). We are asking the Lord to uproot and drive out all the agents of evil from our lives, households, church, and community as we seek take new territory for God.
This is necessary as the Bible makes it clear: For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12). These rulers, authorities, powers and spirits reign over cities and regions and seek to hinder, resist and blind people to reality of God’s kingdom and the freedom found in Jesus Christ!
We are called to engage in spiritual warfare prayer asking Jesus to break their power, authority and influence, so that the gospel of Jesus Christ can advance in power of God’s Spirit to reach the souls of the people of our city, taking new territory for God.
We are called to pray that every wall of opposition will be torn down in the spirit realm. God said to Joshua, When you hear the priests give one long blast on the rams’ horns, have all the people shout as loud as they can. Then the walls of the town will collapse, and the people can charge straight into the town. (Joshua 6:5).
Join us as we lift our hearts to God in prayer and shout with a voice of triumph to see every wall of opposition and every plan of the enemy destroyed and the kingdom of God advance in power of God’s Holy Spirit. We must possess the land in the spirit before we will see it the natural realm. So join us as we engage in spiritual warfare prayer and advance the kingdom of God.
