Luke 22:31 KJVS
And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
Now, wouldn’t it be hypocritical of me if suggesting that we all live in, by, and with, faith, and not stand on faith myself as an example. Remember I stated Yeshua taught to speak the words but demonstrate how to make them come alive.
Here is my testimony of how my day went today. My day started as usual in prayer and meditation. As I prepared to do research for todays article I noticed a sharp pain in my right side.
Of course after the pain increased and started to throb. My immediate reaction or should I say thought was an Appendicitis attack and looked up the symptoms. They sort of matched yet something in my mind said they are not a perfect fit.
Of course like most guys I ignored it and continued on.
Believing it would eventually go away, thinking it may be gas. But as the intensity of the pain increased I was searching my mind for what it might be. I had not totally dismissed the appendix attack, and then thought possibly I was passing a kidney stone.
By now I was laying down and reaching out to the Lord for an answer. The Holy Spirit made me aware this was a spiritual attack and I had sustained a hit by a fiery dart.
As I realized this as a spiritual attack, as my physical health was stable knowing we were under the Lord’s protection. By now the pain was deep in my side and excruciating. I have a very high pain tolerance and threshold, but have never dealt with this level of pain.
Yet, in my heart, I knew, I was going to endure. I began praying placing my petition before the throne of God stating if it was His will, touch me, remove the dart and heal.
At this point I was praying for an answer to what this physical malady could be. The Holy Spirit revealed a fiery dart. Which succeeded in increasing the pain, then it subsided some and then thoughts of calling an ambulance and attending the emergency room declaring an Appendicitis attack.
Suddenly I realized where this thought was coming from, and immediately remembered the answer, “NO“! That thought vanished and I stated “get behind me Satan” and the pain subsided a bit.
Here, is where I realized what was happening.
The video I had released last night was revealing a great number of tools and strong information.
I was under a spiritual attack and I somehow had opened a doorway for a Firey Dart to hit me.
The pain by now was excruciating and close to unbearable, so much so, I had dry heaves. My prayer now was pleading first for relief of pain second to forgive me for what it was spiritually I had sinned against declaring a repentant state.
I brought before the Lord, the two thoughts, Satan or one of his minions had planted in my mind, stating I was standing on my faith and dismissed them by stating “NO,” as the Holy Spirit had instructed, and had ordered Satan to get behind me.
As I prayed, in my mind spiritually I could see this dart sticking out of my Right side.
My pleas were for the darts removal and healing of all the areas the dart affected. Again reinforcing the command for Satan to get behind me. Shortly after, fervently stating I was standing on my faith, knowing Yeshua would heal me, no matter how long it took.
I didn’t immediately recognize the pain was nearly gone, I went for a drink of water, as I sipped the water it went down and came back out as fast. Right after I heaved that was when I realized, I had no pain, I was completely pain free. I immediately thanked the Lord and stated I would testify of His greatness, that through standing on my faith, Yeshua, answered my pleas for mercy and healing.
Had I succumbed to the thoughts and attended the hospital. How unbecoming it would have been, to the character of a follower of Jesus, who took upon him the form of a servant, and humbled himself to the death of the cross! To have set aside my faith and trust because of not being willing to endure the pain. How humiliating and would have stolen my ability to serve as a humble servant knowing Yeshua suffered just as greatly.
In the way to eternal happiness, we must expect to be assaulted and sifted by Satan. If he cannot destroy, he will try to disgrace or distress us. Nothing more certainly forebodes a fall, in a professed follower of Christ, than self-confidence, with disregard to warnings, and contempt of danger.
Unless we watch and pray always, we may be drawn in the course of the day into those sins which we were in the morning most resolved against, and identified as stumbling blocks.
Remember these articles are the words of a humble servant, obedient to Yeshua as a Watchman sounding the Trumpet of impending dangers within the Assembly.
