The threat Ministry
• When God puts a ministry in your hands, and you take heat on God’s ordnances about your ministry, something happens in the heavenly realms. As soon as you put on all the Armor of God, you become a threat to the devil.
Something also happens. God will not leave you on your own! The gifts of the spirit fall in place, and our eyes are open in a way that will be hard for others to see what you can see in the spirit.
•And then it starts! The enemy is afraid! But when someone is afraid, they defend themselves from the threat, which is you, and your ministry! (My mother used to say "watch your back from a coward, The brave will come face on!")
Basic to strong attacks
•It starts with basic attacks to us and family members, our finances, work, time and sicknesses.
•It's necessary that we keep our armor on, always.
•When he sees that we are still standing strong, there is when he starts to develop a more complicated strategy (2 Corinthians 2:11)
•11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
The devil intelligence(infiltration) department
•John 6:70 Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!"
• The enemy will form greater and greater attacks than the last. They will be against the ministry that God put in your hands. He will try to infiltrate the ministry using your own family, friends or even other brothers and sisters(sadly), but it's not their fault! The enemy preys on our weaknesses! That's why we need to keep The Armor on.
•Matthew 16:23 "But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men."(when peter tried to hold Jesus from going to the cross)
•The enemy will try to make it look like he is helping, or doing a favor, or defending us and will make it look like he is with us. Stay focused on the purpose of your ministry.
•Acts 5:3 3 "But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?"
• He will try to use your ministry, and put people in your way with double agendas, to detour your ministry from its purpose. People that want to look good in the eyes of others, but also benefit from it. Again, is not their fault, the enemy preys on our weaknesses. Keep the Armor on!
•How to avoid the enemy strategy’s effectiveness over your ministry:
organize your ministry, do not detour the purpose that your ministry was created for.
•Put Your trust in Jesus!
•Ask God for discernment.
•Do not bound your ministry to one group.
•Make your ministry available to everyone!
•Test the spirits
•Do not be intimidated by men ,positions and authorities! Remember God chose you for your ministry!
•Keep the Armor of God on, at all times
God Bless you ,stay strong and focused.
After all, it's not our ministries, but God's, and He qualified you to be a good administrator. Pick up the Armor and fight for that with which he trusted you with!
God bless you all!
