5-4-2012 SUBJECT- FASTING-SPIRIT POWER


MATTHEW 4: 1-2 = 

(1) THEN JESUS WAS LED UP OF THE SPIRIT, INTO THE WILDERNESS, TO BE TEMPTED OF THE DEVIL.

(2) AND WHEN HE HAD FASTED 40 DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS, HE WAS AFTERWARD HUNGRY.


"REMARKS"

IN THIS ACCOUNT OF JESUS, YAH'SHUAS, TEMPTATION, WE SEE THAT TO FACE THE DEVIL, AS A MAN, AND TO HAVE THE STRENGTH TO NOT SUBMIT TO THE DEVILS WILL, HE WAS EMPOWERED BY THE FASTING PROCESS, WHICH INCREASED HIS  SPIRITUAL POWER AND PRESENCE AND BEING.

THIS IS SO VITAL FOR EACH BELIEVER TO KNOW, THAT WHEN YOU ARE FACING A SITUATION, SUCH AS DRIVING OUT DEMONIC SPIRITS OR ANY DEMONIC SPIRIT, FASTING, ACCOMPANIED BY PRAYER, WILL BE THE VICTORY, YOU WILL HAVE, IN THE POWER OF THE NAME OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA.

LOOK AT IT LIKE THIS! WHEN YOU FAST, YOU DECREASE THE PHYSICAL ASPECT OF YOUR BEING AND INCREASE THE SPIRITUAL BEING, OF WHICH WE ALL ARE. WE ARE SPIRIT BEINGS, IN FLESH BODIES.

THE LONGER WE FAST, THE GREATER THE SPIRIT AND WE ARE THEN ABLE TO FIGHT A SPIRITUAL WARFARE, AGAINST DEMONIC SPIRITS OR OTHER NOT SO GOD LIKE SPIRITS. IN OTHER WORDS, SPIRITS AGAINST SPIRITS.

WE CAN ASSIMILATE THE SAME SITUATION, WHEN A PERSON IS ABOUT TO PASS AWAY.

 THE SCRIPTURE IN ECCLESIASTES 12: 7 SAYS = THEN SHALL THE DUST(FLESH) RETURN TO THE EARTH, AS IT WAS: AND THE SPIRIT, SHALL RETURN TO GOD, WHO GAVE IT.

THIS IS SO CLEAR AS TO WHAT HAPPENS AT DEATH.

AS I HAVE STATED BEFORE, WHEN I WAS A CHILD, I ALMOST PASSED AWAY AND AT THE MOMENT MY BODY BECAME SO WEAK, MY SPIRIT OF LIFE, CAME OUT OF MY BODY AND ROSE ABOVE ME, AS MY BODY WAS LYING IN BED. THOUGH I DID NOT PASS AWAY, AND THE SPIRIT RETURNED INTO MY BODY, IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE, THAT IS OUR FLESH DIES, NOT US OURSELVES, AGAIN, AS WE, ARE SPIRIT BEINGS, IN FLESH(DUST) BODIES.

THIS SAME EXAMPLE OF DYING IS RELATED TO THE FASTING  OF OUR FLESH BODIES, THAT WHEN WE FAST, IT WEAKENS THE FLESH PART OF OUR EXISTENCE AND POWERS OUR SPIRIT STATE OF BEING, THAT AS THE BODY WEAKENS, THE SPIRIT, INCREASES AND WE ARE THEN ABLE TO WAR AGAINST OTHER UNGODLY SPIRITS.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS REAL AND IS NOT FOR THE WEAK CHRISTIAN, BUT THE BORN AGAIN, GOD FEARING AND SCRIPTURE FILLED AND THE HOLY SPIRIT FILLED CHRISTIAN. SOME CALL THIS TYPE OF DEMONIC AND SPIRIT WARFARE, AS EXORCISM. 

THE STORY OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND HIS BATTLE CAME AFTER 40 DAYS AND NIGHTS, WITHOUT FOOD, THOUGH SEEMS SINCE THIRST WAS NOT MENTIONED, AND IT MUST BE NOTED A HUMAN, IS ALLOWED SOME 40 DAYS WITHOUT FOOD TO SURVIVE, BUT ONLY 3 DAYS WITHOUT SOME LIQUID, MOST LIKELY WATER.

STILL ALL IN ALL, IT WAS JESUS, YAH'SHUA, THE MAN, WHO HAD TO DO WHAT WE, WHO FIGHT SPIRITUAL BATTLES HAVE TO DO, AND THAT IS TO FAST AND DEPENDING ON WHAT SPIRITUAL FOE IT IS, DEPENDS A LOT ON THE LENGTH OF TIME OF FASTING IS REQUIRED, TO WIN THE BATTLE OF TEMPTATIONS AND OVERCOMING, EVIL SPIRITS.
