Those who HINDER


1 Corinthians 2:4-5

King James Version

4 And my speech and my preaching 

was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, 

but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

5 That your faith should not stand 

in the wisdom of men, 

but in the power of God.

I experienced great difficulty in creating this 62nd blog.

Having three false starts, in three days, I deleted all those three blogs, and posts.

Even before that, I felt my strength ebbing.

"Something" was hindering me from sharing with you the FALSE teachings verses.

Do you believe spiritual work can be hindered?

Do you believe there is such a thing as spiritual warfare?

Prophet Daniel had his own testimony about that.

Daniel 10:1-14

King James Version

10 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia 

a thing was revealed unto Daniel, 

whose name was called Belteshazzar; 

and the thing was true, 

but the time appointed was long: 

and he understood the thing, 

and had understanding of the vision.

2 In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks.

3 I ate no pleasant bread, 

neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, 

neither did I anoint myself at all, 

till three whole weeks were fulfilled.

4 And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, 

as I was by the side of the great river, 

which is Hiddekel;

5 Then I lifted up mine eyes, 

and looked, 

and behold a certain man clothed in linen, 

whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz:

6 His body also was like the beryl, 

and his face as the appearance of lightning, 

and his eyes as lamps of fire, 

and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, 

and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.

7 And I Daniel alone saw the vision: 

for the men that were with me saw not the vision; 

but a great quaking fell upon them, 

so that they fled to hide themselves.

8 Therefore I was left alone, 

and saw this great vision, 

and there remained no strength in me: 

for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, 

and I retained no strength.

9 Yet heard I the voice of his words: 

and when I heard the voice of his words, 

then was I in a deep sleep on my face, 

and my face toward the ground.

10 And, behold, 

an hand touched me, 

which set me upon my knees 

and upon the palms of my hands.

11 And he said unto me, 

O Daniel, 

a man greatly beloved, 

understand the words that I speak unto thee, 

and stand upright: 

for unto thee am I now sent. 

And when he had spoken this word unto me, 

I stood trembling.

12 Then said he unto me, 

Fear not, Daniel: 

for from the first day 

that thou didst set thine heart to understand, 

and to chasten thyself before thy God, 

thy words were heard, 

and I am come for thy words.

13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia 

withstood me one and twenty days: 

but, lo, Michael, 

one of the chief princes, 

came to help me; 

and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

14 Now I am come to make thee understand 

what shall befall thy people in the latter days: 

for yet the vision is for many days.

Daniel 10:20-21

King James Version

20 Then said he, 

Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? 

and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: 

and when I am gone forth, 

lo, the prince of Grecia shall come.

21 But I will shew thee 

that which is noted in the scripture of truth: 

and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, 

but Michael your prince.

Evil is real.

But take heart, JESUS is incomparably greater.

1 John 4:4

King James Version

4 Ye are of God, 

little children, 

and have overcome them: 

because greater is he that is in you, 

than he that is in the world.
