I have personally experienced a great deliverance from the Lord from enemies who were too strong for me, and as Pastor Christmas mentions, the Lord, in His mercy and goodness, gives our enemies time to repent which is why there are often seeming delays to the answers to our prayers.
BUT, there are seeming delays to our prayers for deliverance from our strong enemies for another reason as well. Here’s an excerpt from another post I shared recently explaining what it is:
“I’ve personally been in a dangerous situation in the past involving me and my son, and the Lord did not deliver us immediately. I prayed, fasted, and cried out to Him, and trusted Him to protect us and He did at every turn. However, the “wicked” person we were dealing with was still around but my Faithful Lord allowed NO harm to come to us.
One day, SUDDENLY, after approximately 3 years of praying, fasting, and praying with warriors, the Lord gave me and my son a MIGHTY deliverance.
I believe part of the reason it took time was that God was allowing my enemy to dig a pit SOOOO deep (that was intended for us) that they sealed their own fate up so tight there was no escape. No way to talk themselves out of it. Hallelujah! As in the past, my enemy was able to talk their way out of things, even make me look like the “bad guy” to those in authority, etc. Sound familiar? Just like what we are seeing now.
I was in a “my word against theirs” situation, and it looked like my enemy would get away with it. BUT GOD whose name is Faithful and True and who loves to give good gifts to those who ask Him that our joy might be full said, “NO!” And He delivered me from my strong enemy! Glory to the Lamb!
I believe it is likewise with the election fraud and corruption. He sees all and will allow the wicked to dig a pit SO MASSIVE for themselves – enough to fit every last wicked one which this “GIANT” is composed of – so their fate is sealed up so tight, the evidence and their guilt is so clear, that there is no way out.
No talking themselves out of it. That as the Word says, “the teeth of the wicked shall be broken.” SILENCED by the Lord! And even they will know that their defeat had to have happened by God, the very one they reject and mock!
Our job is to partner, in faith, with His Word and will and yes even His character, a pray His will be done on earth as it is in heaven that ALL voter fraud and corruption be exposed and brought to justice for this is absolutely His will as these are all works of the devil.” [end]
I was young in the Lord when I went through that frightening circumstance and didn’t realize it at the time that the Holy Spirit was teaching me to use His Word to pray prophetically for He led me to pray verses like this over my situation…
“For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it shall be no more,” (Psalm 37:10).
“He delivers me from my enemies.
You also lift me up above those who rise against me;
You have delivered me from the violent man,” (Psalm 18:48).
Then, once the breakthrough of our complete deliverance was very close to manifesting, the Holy Spirit led me to these words to begin to pray and prophesy (changing the pronouns as appropriate):
“For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever,” (Exodus 14:13).
“All your children will be taught by the Lord,
and great will be their peace.
In righteousness you will be established:
Tyranny will be far from you;
you will have nothing to fear.
Terror will be far removed;
it will not come near you,” (Isaiah 54:13-14).
ALL He led me to pray came to pass. NOT ONE WORD He gave me failed to manifest in our lives! It’s been many years now since our deliverance. Hallelujah!
It’s VERY important to note here from my testimony that we are not always called to pray nice, sweet fluffy prayers.
We must be led by the Holy Spirit on how to pray for each situation. My son and I were in danger, so of course the Lord led me to pray for what that circumstance called for. He saw my enemy’s heart and his intentions towards us and led me to pray the right prayers at the right time. How I praise You, Lord!
I have personally experienced, “Mess with My Babies and Mock Me and Prepare to Be Messed Up Devils,” in my life. Glory to the Lion of Judah!
On to the prophetic Word…Some encouraging excerpts from Pastor Kent Christmas’ prophetic word from the Lord [VIDEO]:
“I will not says God let evil men and so called believers who are full of unbelief make make Me a liar for I am not a man that I should repent saith God. For I am still God and when I send forth My word it goes forth as a sword saith the Lord. And it is going to pierce the very strongholds of the power of darkness.”
“So am I now coming to you and to this nation and across the earth in this Christmas season to give you a gift says the Lord. That you will never forget.”
“The word of the Lord that I have released in this hour though it looks impossible says God it will come to pass…by the power of the Holy Ghost.”
“The enemy has built gallows to hang the church. But I’m getting ready to reverse saith God what has been declared in this nation. And I’m going to take the weapon that the enemy formed against the house of the Lord and I’m going to cause the enemy to be destroyed by the very weapon that he forged in the fires of hell to destroy the people of God.”
