“For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into
heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will
sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides
of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will be like the Most High.” Isaiah 14:13-14
Before the creation of Adam and Eve, Satan moved within himself
against God. In effect, Satan said that he could rule better
“He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were
cast out with him.” Revelation 12:9
Because all creation heard what Satan said, God created an
environment, the Garden of Eden, and placed a man in it and
gave him “the power of choice.” Satan deceived
Adam and Eve. As a result, they came under his control and
Satan then became the “prince of this world.”
The angels that were cast out with Satan, became the “principalities”
– “the rulers of the darkness of this world.”
Concerning demons, the Word says,
“And He ordained twelve, that they should be with Him,
and that He might send them forth to preach, And to have power
to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils.” Mark 3:13-14
A fallen angel (principality) cannot be “cast out,”
because they were never “in.” They are a created
being, therefore, we are to “wrestle” against
them. In wrestling, one is weakened until their strength is
displaced by another.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high
places.” Ephesians 6:12
In His original created purpose, Satan was a worshipper (Ezekiel
28:13-14). When we “worship,” we are taking his
place by “displacing” him. Thus, we are to “wrestle”
against Satan, and against these fallen principalities, as
being an active enemy who works against us. If we are wrestling
successfully, we are displacing their strength with our strength,
until these fallen principalities become weakened and ineffective.
“He who smote the people in wrath (Satan) with a continual
stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted,
and none hinders. The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet:
they break forth into singing.” Isaiah 14:6-7
It can be rightly said that when we worship, “He who
presently rules the nations … is persecuted.”
We are taking his place because he was the worshipper, and
now, “we” have become the “worshippers.”
When we “break through” into the heavens in worship,
the quickening power of God begins to flow. As a result, “the
whole earth becomes quiet, and breaks forth in singing,”
because now there is no opposition, as the hindrances have
been removed. As we worship, we are lifted from the earthly,
and are lifted into the heavenlies, displacing these powers
“Yea, the fir trees rejoice at you, and the cedars
of Lebanon, saying, Since you are laid down, no feller is
come up against us.” Isaiah 14:8
Therefore, our worship is very important. As we enter into
a high level of worship, we are weakening the enemy, and we
are becoming strong. The Word of blessing, direction, and
purpose, can now flow out and become effective beyond our
We are living during the closing time of Satan’s rule.
The result of his rule has been hatred, violence, murder,
famine, pestilence, and the like. All creation has seen how
Satan rules, but they have never seen how God rules.
When Satan deceived Adam and Eve, the Lord spoke a word of
judgment against him, “You bruised their heel (hindered
their walk), but they will bruise (render ineffective) your
head.” (Genesis 3:15b). Because Satan deceived mankind,
God will use the very ones he deceived to bring him down.
The key to this is our “worship.”
In pure worship, we come together as “one” in
harmony, becoming “one” with the Lord in purpose.
In this “oneness” there is a release of divine
life and energy and Satan is brought low, and the purpose
of God begins to unfold and move. As a result, the whole earth
will become quiet, and break forth in singing.
Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is within.” As
we submit to the “inner working” of the Kingdom,
we are becoming a “prepared” people. The righteousness,
peace, and joy that we experience within, will begin to move
out and affect all of mankind.
The Lord is about to move mightily in His body, as He will
rule through those whom He has prepared for a higher purpose,
a people whom He can trust with authority.
When this spiritual authority begins to function, there will
be both persecution and tribulation. This will function as
a two-edged sword, which will bring repentance, healing, and
deliverance to those who rightly respond; or judgment, which
will lead to death, for those who reject their opportunity.
This world will see a demonstration of the power of God,
such as has never been seen. As these judgments begin, mankind
will have the greatest opportunity ever to hear, repent, and
turn to the Lord.
The Lord is preparing the earth for a demonstration of His
government, and of His Kingdom. Then all creation will see
how God rules.
