KINGDOM INTERCESSION RELEASES GOD’S POWER AND AUTHORITY ON EARTH, AS IN HEAVEN
Dr. Lindy Diffenbaugh
Power to Destroy Hell and Darkness on the Earth!
When the force of dynamite power is combined with the force of Intercessory Prayer, we begin to reckon with the absolute urgency that is upon God’s warriors to engage this discipline daily. In so doing, we will cover our families, our nation, and our world with Heaven’s grace and authority to fearlessly stand in the face of Death, Hell, and Darkness and prevail over them all. The goal of the battle is to ruthlessly demolish the enemy that stands before us, and to take down every one of his minions that stand against us.
Among the many reasons that prayer packs a powerful punch between Earth and Heaven, is the fact that God Himself has invited us to come boldly into His Throne Room of Grace, and to petition Him for victory in the battle that we engage on the earth. With our Commander and Chief before us, we will not fail to lay hold of the grace and authority to stand in the face of Hell and prevail against principalities, powers, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God!
We must recognize that because Creator of all things, sees us as His Front Line Warriors-to boldly enter His Throne Room of Grace, and to petition Him to release His authority, power, and unlimited strength down upon us as we engage Demonic warriors on the earth. The strength of the force of global intercessory prayer will absolutely create an explosive Dunamis Thrust that will demolish Hell’s efforts to bring destruction upon the earth.
When Intercession is Released Heaven Responds
When released from the depth of our hearts, intercession greatly empowers us, the warriors of the Most-High God, to demolish Hell’s devilish minions. The aftermath of the defeat of darkness on the earth will bless and empower entire families, as well as the generations beyond those that are alive in this day. No doubt, God’s heart is blessed when His earthly warriors call to him night and day for His wisdom, His goodness His knowledge and certainly he move of His hand in their lives.
As the intensity of prayer empowers intercession, it will draw down Heaven’s attention, that in turn will trigger the release of God’s intervention from Heaven to Earth. This intervention will always be a targeted release to strike the earth exactly where and when it is needed. With the victory won, it will become evident that the passion of our prayers not only move God’s heart, but it moves His hand as well.
As you intercede, your faith must affirm that your prayers immediately reach the ears of your Father in Heaven. When you see the Hand of Heaven in your battle against hell and darkness, then you will know without doubt, that the Father has heard, and He is responding to your prayers. As you see His hand of intervention in your situations and circumstances, the fact that the Father hears and answers your prayers becomes a solid reality in your mind, heart, and spirit. Never doubt that Holy Spirit calls out your name, and He speaks to the Father about your battles, trials and infirmities. When the answers to your petitions come upon you, you will be assured that both His Eye, and His Hand are moving on your behalf. It will also be a confirmation that Hell will be defeated and you, with The Commander and Chief in Heaven will be Victorious in the Battle.
You Are Not Alone in the Battle
It is vital that we understand that We, the people of God, do not know how to pray as we ought to pray (Romans 8:26). Why is that? Because from the perspective of the earth, we can only see earthly objects and events that are before us. That is why God has sent His Holy Spirit to help us in our infirmities and in our shortcomings, to see beyond the natural.
When we feel that we are alone in the battle, then that is the very time that we must understand that the Spirit of God Himself is encouraging us to release targeted intercession-(Romans 8:26). When we release the force of our intercession, then we must stand in absolute faith that, “When we release our prayers to Heaven’s Throne, then “God Himself hears and releases His response to your intercession. Because He is God, the Creator of All Things, He is Willing and He is Able to Orchestrate the Fulfillment of Those Prayers. His ultimate goal is to Save Us, Deliver Us, and to Save Us Completely”-(Hebrews 7:25).
Because Jesus is the Greatest intercessor in the Universe, He, through the Holy Spirit, guides and instructs us through the mountains that loom beyond us, before us, and yes, even on top of us. When God intervenes in our “shipwrecked” circumstances, then demons flee, mountains move, bodies are healed, and relationships are restored. In other words, when the hand of God reaches down into your circumstances, then Everything Falls Into Place.
Intercession Is the Key To the Heart of God
If we truly want to please the Father in Heaven, then we must recognize that prayer and intercession, more than anything else, are the Keys to His Heart.
Intercession is defined as, “the act of offering petitions, in exchange for God’s Grace and Blessings.” The Latin translation of the word implies a going between on behalf of another. In other words, there is someone on earth who has a need, and there is a God in Heaven who has the answer for that need. The intercessor sees both, and steps in between the two to secure the intervention of the Lord in the life of the other.
Thus, intercession is calling on the Father to act on behalf of another person, to save them from the works of the enemy, and from the flames of Hell Fire!
The intercessor’s absolute commitment to focused and accurate intercession, offered with love, passion, and the intention to continue until the answer comes, will always deliver the right intervention, for the lives and souls that they have been represented before the Throne of God.
In fact Holy Spirit is the agent sent from Heaven to pray through us with wordless groans, (Romans 8:26). Holy Spirit resides inside of us, and He leads us as We Petition Heaven through our intercession. It is Holy Spirit that gives us the words to verbalize and release our prayers up to Heaven’s throne.
Why Do WE Pray? Because-When we pray, we set the captive free. When we pray, we deliver those who sit in darkness, and they will see a great light. When we pray, we lift heavy burdens off those that cannot lift them on their own. When we pray, bodies are healed, marriages are repaired, and finances are released.
Further, When we pray, souls that are marching headlong into the flames of hell fire, find Jesus and they step onto a new pathway towards Heaven. When we pray, we invite the hands of God to release His blessing into the most hopeless and helpless situations imaginable. Finally, when we pray, we increase our strength and ability to prevail against Hell, as well as the powers of darkness that have been sabotaging the efforts of mankind on the earth for many, many millenniums. Rest assured that they will not stop harassing God’s people until Satan himself is buried in the bottomless pit that has been prepared for him. That, of course means that we, God’s warriors will not stop fighting until we leave this earth, or until the rapture descends onto this earth takes God’s Saints to Heaven.
The benefits of Prayer can be likened to the awards of the man in the military. Every battle that he wins, goes on his record. When his record reflects great leadership, and when he wins enough battles, he will step into an unimaginable promotion!
Vigilance on the spiritual battlefield, when added to every battle that we win, we increases our authority in the Kingdom of God. With that increase, our ability to take on greater battles will grow exponentially.
These victories build us up in our most holy faith. They strengthen our ability to face any and every power of darkness that comes against us, as well as against those that we love. Beyond our loved ones, our intercession can reach around the globe, and touch masses of people groups, and the nations of the earth.
The interesting thing about releasing your prayers into the nations of the earth, is that they reach out and touch Heaven on behalf people and situations that they face, all around the globe; but. it is very likely y that they will bring God’s solutions into the most difficult circumstances that you can imagine; yet even though they poured out your intercession before God for what might be horrendous situations, and they are certain that He will respond to those prayers; yet it is very likely that they will never meet one of those people whose lives that thei intercession saved, rescued, healed, etc., etc., etc.
In light of all of the lives, situations, and nations that they might have prayed for, my guess is that when they get to Heaven, they will realize that our commitment to focused and continued intercession, was merely a “drop in the bucket,” in light of the massive needs that God sees around this Globe. However, understand this, that “drop in the bucket” was absolutely necessary to meet God’s needs on this earth, and to push back Satan’s efforts to sabotage the work of Heaven on the Earth.
When we see a need on the earth, we must always begin to negotiate a Heavenly intervention into the situation. When the intervention is released, we must ask the Father if He would have us to intercede any further on the matter. If He says, “YES”, then pray and keep on praying. If He says, “No”, then petition Him to release your next intercessory intervention.
Give God What He Wants/Needs From You
To further the definition and to increase the depth of partnering with God on intercessory assignments, it can also be said that intercession is the effort and intention to get our Father in Heaven what He wants. If Jesus’s one desire was to do the will of His Father in Heaven, then it is imperative that we, His Disciples, keep the passions of Christ in our minds, our spirits, and in our mouths, when we pray?
Finally, when we pray Christ’s passions, along with the plans and purposes of the Father, then we are truly partnered with Christ and contending for God’s intervention in the broken lives of others. As we join our prayers with Christ’s desires, then we will impact Nations, National Leaders, Global Unity, and the ability for His eternal purpose to perpetuate and prevail in lives, hearts, and institutions on the earth.
This message is brief. It does not begin to touch the height, the width, the depth, and the breadth of the power and force that intercession carries. When we pray, we must discern the depth of the Spirit within us and allow it to take us into the deepest depths of prayer and beyond. As we pray, it is imperative that we consult and listen to Holy Spirit. Why? Because Holy Spirit will always take us far beyond the constraints of our own flesh, mind, and heart.
Boldly Petition Your Father In Heaven
As warriors of Christ, we must boldly petition our Father in Heaven for His intervention for the people that we represent before Him, on this EARTH. We must never fail to take full advantage of our Lord’s invitation to come boldly into the Throne Room of Grace and Petition Him for our lives, our families, our city, our nation, and our world.
Never forget that Prayer is a great privilege. It is an open door to go into the Throne Room of Grace, to find help and mercy in a time of need. (Hebrews 4:16). Never Neglect to Accept the Father’s Invitation to Come Boldly into His Presence and Petition Him for the Things That Only He Can Release and Provide!
To prevail against Hell, we must persist in the battle and intensify our prayers until they are too hot for Hell to endure. We must always pray through until we know that Heaven has heard our prayers. If we cut off the prayer prematurely, then we will abort the release of Heaven’s deliverance in to our earthly needs. We must keep on praying and never ever give up, until we find ourselves basking in the certainty of God’s Goodness and Mercy.
It is sad to say that we live in a day of disaster and desperation. But, beyond that, it is also a day when God’s favor and His supernatural grace and strength are upon us. It is also a day when Heaven Will Surely Hear Our Prayers, and God Himself Will Begin to Push Back the Darkness and Bring His Kingdom to this Earth.
It is a day when the enemy is raging against God’s purposes. In this day, it is imperative that, we join with Holy Spirit, and “Run With the Footmen”. He will teach us to move through the battle, and to enter straight into absolute victory, on Earth as In Heaven!
Why is that so important? It is important because the horsemen are certainly upon us.
If we have fainted with the footmen, and certainly we have, then how will we ever contend with the horsemen?” (Jeremiah 12:5)
Stay in the Battle and Fight the Good Fight of Faith against the enemy! Why is it a Good Fight? It is Good Because WE, The Armies of the Living God, Will Ultimately Take Down the Devil and All of His Minions on this Earth. In the end, Satan will be caged in a pit for a very, very long time!!! That, above all things, Makes it a Very Good Fight!
The Battle is ON!!! Are YOU IN or ARE YOU OUT???
