KEY PRINCIPLES OF THE ANOINTING
In the last few weeks I have been involved in counseling people … all in different countries … who came to me for help concerning the same situation. These people were all Spirit-filled Christians and all but one were not only active in ministry, but powerful in ministry.
My advice in a “nutshell” for each of them was “Let it go! Forget about it!” Amazingly enough, after telling each of them the same thing, one night I had a little time to watch Christian TV. I happened to turn to a Christian program where Pastor Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas (USA) was teaching on the subject: “Let it go!”
Pastor Osteen's father used to listen to my teaching on cassette tapes and one time when I was in Houston at his church, Pastor John Osteen said (about me) "This man's teachings are good!" That was a real encouragement to me as a young minister.
My take on "LET IT GO" is a bit different than what Joel Osteen was teaching on, although his was excellent. My revelation is that as long as you HOLD to an issue where people are opposing you, you are “tied” to the situation. It is a spiritual tie … and can end up subjecting a person to bondage.
Let me give you an example. Let's suppose you are working efficiently and productively at your place of employment and you have made your employer lots of money. One of your supervisors recommended you for a raise in pay and a promotion. However, both were denied by someone unknown. After that, you were promised twice that you would get the raise in pay and that it would be retroactive (payments made up) back to the time of your previous supervisors recommendation. However, again you were told “No!” Well, after inquiring over and over about the matter you could be embittered, or quit your job, or mad at whoever was opposing your pay raise and job promotion. This is an example of HOW demons work at you – opposing you and aggravating you – from “behind the scenes.”
When you embrace those (hidden, unknown) spirits you are “tied” to them. They have you bound to that “spiritual” setting, or environment. Let it go! Break loose! Follow the instructions I am about to give you and you will have victory and complete freedom in such situations.
SCENARIO: After praying and taking spiritual authority over the situation and people involved (even if unknown) … let's suppose that you decide NOT to embrace that spirit of opposition … and to “cut yourself loose from it emotionally, physically and spiritually” … and turn the situation over into the hands of God. You will immediately experience peace: you will be in the peace zone!
Do NOT embrace the spirit of opposition; otherwise you will end up being in a spiritual “tie.” Just let it go … forget about it.
There are three (3) KEY steps to obtaining victory is such situations:
2. Release; and
I believe there are at least nine (9) unholy spirit (demon) loans. These are “loans” because they are the opposite of Holy spirit “gifts.” Once you accept a demonic “loan” you are bound to it: you owe it as long as you embrace it. Remember, the Holy Bible tells us, “The borrower is servant to the lender.” (Proverb 22:7)
You may ask the question: “How does one embrace an unholy spirit?” ANSWER: By accepting its invitation. If it is a spirit of argumentativeness, you argue with it; thereby accepting its invitation. You become entwined with it; you are entangled with it. You are embracing that evil spirit. The definition of “embrace” is:
1. to take or clasp in the arms; press to the bosom; hug.
2. to take or receive gladly or eagerly; accept willingly: to embrace an idea.
3. to avail oneself of: to embrace an opportunity.
4. to adopt (a profession or a religion, etc.).
5. to take in with the eye or the mind.
For example, if you embrace the spirit of opposition, then you are locked to it: it has you "tied" to it. Just release it … AND … the people or things promoting or causing it. By "release" I mean not just forgiving, but "completely divorcing yourself from the situation.”
After you have taken your spiritual authority over the people, spirits and elements that have been troubling, perplexing or opposing you, then transfer the situation into God's hands. In the Brit Chadashah, Rabbi Shaul (the Apostle Paul) admonishes us as follows:
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Messiah Yeshua.” (Philippians 4:6)
The KEY is to transfer your situation to God with thanksgiving. This lets God know you are doing this in faith … you are already thanking Him for handling the situation and taking care of it for you.
The original Greek term for the English “will guard your hearts and minds” is military terminology and means “the peace of God will be your sentry, your guard, your security unit protecting your heart and mind.”
Simply trust God to take up the issue or matter in your behalf.
Many of God's people know about spiritual AUTHORITY (#1) … and about TRANSFER (#3); however, they are missing a floor on the elevator by not implementing RELEASE (#2). They are still embracing the spirit(s) of the demon “loans” who are inviting them to “accept the invitation” and thereby have them “tied” to the situation. Remember, release is more than forgiveness … it also involves completely divorcing yourself from the situation. This is one very dangerous omission by modern Christian psychologists and counselors.
Let it go! Forget about it!
I trust this teaching has helped you … and will continue to help you in the future.
Now … go help others!
Baruch haba B'Shem Adonai.
