This ministry is dedicated to preparing the Jews, the nations and the Church for the return of the Lord. When we began in 2003, many scoffed at the idea that we were entering a time of judgment in America and around the world. Today, with international economic crises, sexual licentiousness and...

As we prepare for the national election this autumn, we can expect to see advertising, admonitions and accusations among our politicians on TV.  The “discourse” has become “coarse.” It is a sign of the times, the end of the age.
We are in the midst of the biggest political scandal in the history of our nation.  Unfortunately, in a previous administration, some officials in the highest corridors of power-the CIA, FBI and Department of Justice- tried to manipulate the government to achieve their personal goals which are: open borders, surrendering American independence to international forces, and ultimately a one-world leader.  Why would government officials betray America?  Some do it for wealth and power.  Others, because of the darkness of their own souls.
Many of these corrupt individuals live in New York City or Washington DC.  They have been identified by the term “swamp dwellers” or “deep state” actors.  They belong to both political powers and are elitists (people who consider themselves superior to us in intellect, position, talent and wealth, therefore the only ones fit to rule).
The good news is that righteous men and women in America have risen up to resist their agenda. Furthermore, as we align more closely with the nation of Israel, God is fulfilling His promise in Genesis 12:3.  He is blessing America, and we will not be defeated by these evil people.  Who is behind these elitists, who are trying to destroy our Republic? The Bible clearly teaches that:
Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenlies.
Therefore, our real enemies are principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness.  They dwell in the second heaven.  There are three heavens:
First Heaven   Atmospheric Heaven (Sky)
                                    Genesis 1:8 “And God called the firmament heaven.”
Second Heaven          Heavenly Places Which Reign over the Earth . Satan’s seat is here: Rev 2:13.“I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is.And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.
Third Heaven The Planet Heaven- God’s throne is in this heaven, Rev 4:2. “I know a man in Christ…such a one (Paul) was caught up to the third heaven.” 2 Corinthians 12:2
These spirits in the second heaven, against whom we war, descend to earth from the second heaven to come against mankind.  Let us define these spirits, our true enemies.
1.      Principalities
2.      Powers
3.      Rulers of darkness of this present age
4.      Spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies.
The Lord visited Kenneth E Hagin and explained the first three classes of these demonic beings to him.  Brother Hagin wrote in his autobiographical book, “I Believe In Visions,” RHEMA Bible Church, 1972, p. 68:
“It is always one of these rulers of the darkness of this world (3rd group) that possesses a person.  They rule not only those who are within the darkness of this world, but they also tell the powers (2nd group) what to do.  Then the powers rule over the principalities (1stgroup) and tell them what to do.  The lowers types of demons (principalities) have very little to do.  They do very little thinking of their own and are told what to do.”(words in parentheses added).
Later, Brother Hagin asked the Lord about the fourth category, “spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenlies.”
“Then I said, ‘Lord, You have told me about only three categories of evil spirits: the rulers of the darkness of this world, the powers, and the principalities.  What about the wicked spirits in the heavenlies?’”p.81.
Jesus told Brother Hagin that He would deal with the fourth group. “You take care of the ones on earth.  I will take care of those in the heavenlies.”p. 81.
Therefore, our warfare as Christians is to battle and defeat: principalities, powers and rulers of darkness in this present age.  Before you address these evil spirits, be sure to take your position of authority in the third heaven.
Ephesians 2:6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
Bind the enemy off of yourself, your loved ones, your job, your locality, and the United States of America on a daily basis.  Billye Brim gives us a good pattern to follow in her booklet “The Authority of the Believer and How To Use It,” p. 37:
“In the Name of Jesus I will now rule and reign over the powers of darkness, because the Lord told me to, in Romans 5:17.  For I have received abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness, therefore I now reign as a king in my life by One, Jesus Christ.  Kingdom of darkness, listen to me.  I hold the Blood of Jesus over all things pertaining to me and I forbid your having anything to do with…”
From here Billye says, she follows her spirit.  She starts with family.  She pleads the Blood over herself-and her family-spirit, soul and body.  (You may also cast those demonic principalities, powers and rulers to the dry land and bind them in Jesus Name.)
SAINTS OF GOD, THIS IS WHAT IS MEANT BY “SPIRITUAL WARFARE.” We must exercise our God given spiritual authority over demonic beings!
John MacMillan, in “The Authority of the Believer”, explains who will replace the demonic powers in the second heaven.  “God, through all the past ages, has had in view this wonderful plan of preparing in Christ Jesus a people, chosen and called and faithful, whom He might place in these heavenly seats to rule through the ages yet to come.”  In other words, the Church will rule from the places now occupied by evil demonic powers from the second heaven
That being the case, we can understand why we wrestle against principalities, powers and rulers of darkness.  MacMillan explains further.  “It is consequently not strange that the principalities and powers who are to be dispossessed of the seats of authority now occupied by themselves should savagely resist their own displacement.”(page 75).

Clearly we are in a battle. We know our team wins, since we’ve read the back of the book. Nevertheless, our personal success and the destiny of America will be determined by our willingness to take the time to pray, vote and exercise our spiritual authority. Be strong, brothers and sisters, in the power of HIS might!
