3 DAYS FASTING AND PRAYER FOR FEBRUARY 25TH, 26TH & 27TH 2022
THEME: "DEFEATING THE GIANTS IN YOUR LIFE"
SCRIPTURE: Joshua 14:12 “So now, give me this mountain which the Lord spoke that day, for you heard on that day that the [GIANT-LIKE] Anakim were there, with great fortified cities; perhaps the Lord will be with me, and I shall drive them out just as the Lord said.”
Do you have a spiritual giant in your life that you don't know how to conquer? Are you letting that giant push you around because you think this giant is more powerful than WHO YOUR God is? Whatever your situation may be today precious saints, you can SLAY THE GIANT IN YOUR LIFE BY SIMPLE FAITH IN GOD. See we must deal with every giant in our life that we may live to the full potential that God has for us, as we await His return. The bible says only those that overcome shall receive the reward and be with Jesus, so only with the help of the Holy Spirit will we overcome all hinderances caused by spiritual giants in our life (Rev 3:21)
God is speaking to you today Child of God, for it is time to defeat every giant and take back what is rightfully yours that the enemy may have stolen from you precious saints. Remember you will never conquer anything by running away and specially if the giant looks impossible before you. We only must look at the story of David that stood before Goliath.
1 Samuel 17:32 “David said to Saul, "Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine."
David took a stand despite the odds, you too, must TAKE A STAND AGAINST THE ENEMY. Take a stand against sickness and oppression by speaking healing and deliverance scriptures. Take a stand against your financial problems by confessing, "all my needs are met according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Take a stand and you win; don't take a stand and you will stay in the same situation you are in today precious saints. Is that what you want?
David used a stone to slay a giant. What do you have to use today? Well Moses used a rod to part the sea and God can and will use anything that is available to you in His Word. God doesn't have to send you downtown to purchase something to fight a giant with. He just simply uses what you already have, and it first starts with your testimony of how God delivered you. One example of something you already must use, is YOUR FAITH IN GOD PRECIOUS SAINTS!
As you know we are in a spiritual battle between good and evil, right, and wrong and this spiritual battle requires more grace today than ever before precious saints. For the hordes of hell are being released upon the unrighteous with many being used to bring about the enemy’s agenda upon the face of the earth. Therefore, we need to make a stand in prayer like never before and claim back everything that the enemy has stolen. There are many spirits that are oppressing people and we will focus on the spirit of pharaoh, the spirit of setback and marriage troublers this weekend. See the more we know of how to stand up against them, the less people around us will not fall under their control. This battle we are in precious saints the enemy (demonic army) is very well organised and has its own hierarchy and levels of satanic authority. Many in the church today do not understand these levels of authority and spirits that control so many, but I want to remind you again today that Jesus gives us authority over all forces of darkness. So let us look at this hierarchy in the kingdom of darkness that we are up against.
1. Satan (commander-in-chief) 2. Thrones 3. Dominions (lordships) 4. Principalities (rulership’s, princes) 5. Powers (authorities) 6. Rulers Of Darkness of This World 7. Spiritual Wickedness (wicked spirits) In High Places (heavenly places)
Let us look a little further to understand a little more:
Territorial Spirits: Demonic powers that have been given controlling influence over specific sites, peoples, and areas. The belief in such hierarchal arrangements is culturally widespread and often involves protective deities linked to homes, temples, clans, cities, valleys, and nations.
Principalities And Powers: Demonic agents and structures that exert deceptive control over co-conspiratorial human political kingdoms and systems. A principality is defined as: A state ruled by a prince, usually a relatively small state or a state that falls within a larger state such as an empire. The position or authority of a prince or chief ruler; sovereignty; supreme power. So, a principality is not a fallen angel itself. A principality is the seat of authority or the region that the fallen angel has authority over. A prince rules over a principality. Daniel chapter ten makes it noticeably clear that fallen angels, and angels from God are both called princes:
“But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.” (Daniel 10:13)
Powers: These are the sergeants that carry out the orders from the princes and pass down to lower ranking demons.
Rulers of Darkness of This World: Demonic forces involved in deceptive and destructive manipulation of natural elements and systems. Where are the rulers? In the heavenly places.
So yes, there are hinderances that try to hinder the work of God, but when we walk in the finished work of the cross and pray with understanding we can overcome all adversaries before us. Whenever you reach a mountain top or about to breakthrough, Satan tries to stop you. But when the cross was lifted, the enemy was defeated precious saints. When He rose on the third day, that was a greater rising. Therefore, the Lord call you out from the valley of despondence and desires to place you on the heights to take on every giant or spirit oppressing us or our families. Just like the eagle that is unbeatable from higher altitude, the Lord is calling us to discern the times we are living and equip ourselves for the battle ahead.
Now this weekend we are going to come against spirits that have either dominated us at present in the past or our loved ones, so put on the full armour of God as we are taking back everything that belongs to us. We can learn a lot from the story of Caleb who boldly said, “Give me this mountain!” and claimed it as his inheritance and defeated the giants of the land.
Israel has entered the promised land of Canaan and conquered it. Joshua chapter 13-14 lays out how the land was divided among the tribes. In Joshua 14:6 then we see Caleb coming before Joshua with a request. His request recorded in verse 12 is simple, “give me this mountain.” So whatever mountain of opportunity that is before you, God has given you the grace to overcome today also.
Now by what right did Caleb stand before the leader of God’s people and demand, “give me this mountain”? See as a child of God, your heavenly Father has promised you an inheritance. Caleb knew that God had promised Caleb and His family line an inheritance and he came to cash in on that cheque.
The Lord wants you to keep possessing these promises of God within your life, but It’s also important to know your position and inheritance as a child of God, and to keep believing and keep possessing what’s rightfully yours through Christ Jesus hallelujah!
OUR FIGHT IS A FIGHT TO POSSESS WHAT IS ALREADY OURS PRECIOUS SAINTS AND DEFEAT EVERY GIANT.
You know the word which the LORD said” — Caleb knew God’s Word. Unfortunately, many children of God today do not know God’s Word or how to pray. They may know what someone else says, but they do not know what God says. Therefore, it is time to get familiar with what the Word of God says in our daily life’s precious saints! See Caleb knew what God’s Word said about him and he trusted in those words and stepped out in faith. Today, we read the Bible to see Jesus, but also to see what God specifically says about us through His rhema word. What does He say about our inheritance you might ask?
Well as a child of God, you have an inheritance that is rightfully yours and the bible tells us this in: Galatians 4:1–7 “Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore, you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”
KNOWING OUR INHERITANCE AS CHILDREN OF GOD IS CRUCIAL PRECIOUS SAINTS AND WHY YOU MIGHT ASK?
Because the devil does not want us learning about the finished work of the cross that is available to each that walks in the grace of God, because it will cause us to possess our inheritance and defeat every giant before us. So, no matter what mountain you are claiming today, whether it be marriage restoration, healing, deliverance, prodigal children and loved ones, financial breakthrough, promotion, end to the mandates, employment, vindication etc it is your inheritance to receive in Jesus Mighty Name!
PROPHECY TO YOUR GIANT TODAY BEFORE EVEN STARTING DAY ONE OF THE FASTING PROGRAM:
Tell the devil like it is. That you are the WINNER, and he is the LOSER. You will be stating a fact. God will back us up and answer our prayers if we will only speak HIS WORD and put it to the test. We have power over all the power of the enemy. We need to tell our problem good-bye in the name of JESUS. We need to start taking authority over our adversary, the devil.

Fasting Teaching - https://youtu.be/DFWacd-8ShY
What am I required to fast from?
We want to leave this decision up to you. We do not have any mandatory church-wide requirements for how you fast, but here are some ideas:
When we choose not to eat or not to eat certain foods, we allow our physical bodies to hunger and to bring our desires into alignment with our spiritual need for God. There is a clarity in hearing from the Lord which comes when we fast and pray; making a small sacrifice to give up a “pleasure” or comfort to increase your spiritual sight and vision.
We are providing the following options for you to consider:
1. Food Fast
You fast from all foods from either 10pm-6pm (20 hours) or 6am-6pm (12 hours) each day with fluids allowed.
2. Partial Fast
You choose to eliminate certain things i.e., fizzy drinks; sweets/chocolates, bread, no red meat etc, but the rest of your diet remains mainly the same
3. Fruit and Veg
Eat fruit during the day, with liquids (tea/limited coffee, herbal drinks, and water) with a veg meal in the evenings
4. Liquids only during day and veg meal for dinner
Drink water and herbal drinks during the day with a veg meal in the evenings. Please consult your doctor if there are any medical concerns before you commence the fast.
During this time, we encourage you to turn off the TV, computer, video games, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, the Internet, and any other form of social media for a brief peri od of time. You may decide to fast from Facebook or some other form of media altogether or to limit your time to only 1-2 hours per week. When we do this, we create more time when we can read our Bible, pray, worship, and hear from God.
Search your heart in deciding what type of food fast you want to do. If you have never fasted, maybe start off with a partial fast and progress to a fruit and veg option for the last couple of days. Remember, the most important consideration in fasting is your motive. Why are you fasting?
What will we be praying about?
Check each day for the next 3 days there will be theme topics, scriptures, and prayers so you may follow corporately all together. We are trusting the Lord that this time of fasting, and prayer will release a passion for His name within us – to cut off what belongs to a past seasons, to receive renewed hope and vision for our lives/ministries, to be conduits for signs, wonders and miracles and to fulfill the mandate of sharing the gospel to the ends of the earth! During this time of fasting, be intentional about your priorities. Set aside ample time to be alone with the Lord. The more time you spend with God, the more meaningful your fast will be. If you need an overview or suggestions on what you can do to make the most of the fast in terms of having a daily routine, use the below points:
Begin your day in praise and worship
Read the days program and meditate on God’s Word
Invite Holy Spirit to work in you
Take a short prayer walk
Spend time in intercessory prayer for the theme of the day
Make time for an unhurried time of “seeking God’s face”
If others are fasting with you, meet together for prayer
Avoid television or any other distraction that may affect your spiritual focus and watch the daily uploads to YouTube. You are welcome to watch Christian movies etc.
When possible, begin and end each day with your spouse, family, or friend for a brief time of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord. Please let us know you’ll be fasting & praying with us!
PRACTICAL TIPS FOR FASTING:
1. Avoid medical and even natural herbal drugs. However, if you are under medication, these should only be withdrawn upon the advice of your doctor.
2. Limit your physical activity and exercise. If you have a workout routine, adjust it accordingly.
3. Rest as much as you can if needed be.
4. Maintain an attitude of prayer throughout the day. Intercede for your family, pastors, church, nation, missionaries & world missions, etc.
5. Drink plenty of clean water if you are joining the water fast.
6. As your body adjusts, be prepared for temporary bouts of physical weakness as well as a greater likelihood of impatience, irritability, and anxiety.
FASTING BRINGS REVIVAL:
“. . . in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.” Daniel 9:2,3
Fasting helps us prevail in prayer and intercession. Daniel understood that Israel was headed for destruction. He also knew that in times like these, there is only one recourse—intercession through praying and fasting. Throughout human history, God has brought revival and delivered nations from destruction in response to prayer and fasting.
FASTING IS AN ACT OF HUMILITY AND CONSECRATION:
“. . . I put on sackcloth and humbled myself with fasting . . .” Psalm 35:13
Humility results in the grace of God (James 4:6). When we humble ourselves in prayer, we have instant access to the heart of God. As we deny ourselves as an act of consecration, we are better able to exercise self-control over our emotions and desires.
SPIRITUAL CLEANSING & SPIRITUAL EYES OPENED:
Fasting can be done for one meal, one day, one month or for however long God leads. It depends on how the Holy Spirit speaks to us. Shorter fasts are easier to endure until we have built up our “spiritual muscles”. A three day fast is most beneficial as a spiritual cleansing. An example of this is Paul being thrust into his fast upon conversion. After the three days of cleansing, he received the Holy Spirit and his eyesight when Ananias laid hands on him (Acts 9:17-18). We also can be spiritually cleansed by fasting so that we receive more of the Lord’s Spirit and have our spiritual eyes opened to new dimensions. A three day fast is also especially helpful in breaking any addictive habits.
These then are two reasons for fasting: We receive spiritual cleansing and our spiritual eyes are opened, and we also obtain victory over the devil. When Jesus encountered Satan, He was able to overcome Him because His fasting had given Him spiritual strength. Isaiah 58:6 also gives us light on this purpose of fasting: “Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?.” Many people believe that fasting is to move the hand of God, when in actually it is to make Satan turn loose of the things he is holding.
BREAKING STRONGHOLDS & BUILDING FAITH:
Fasting loose the bands of wickedness. When Jesus discussed the keys to the kingdom, He told us to bind and loose. When we fast, we loose the bands of wickedness, undo the heavy burdens, set the oppressed free, and break every yoke of the enemy. Fasting is an important key to getting the victory over hard situations that do not seem to respond to normal prayer.
Fasting builds our faith. In fact, this is what Jesus meant when he spoke to the disciples in Matthew 17:21 in answer to why they were not able to cast a demon out of a child. He said, “However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” He was telling them if they wanted their faith to be at such a level as to be able to cast out demons, then they must fast and pray for their faith to increase.
Fasting also makes it easier for us to hear the voice of the Lord. We find an account of this in Acts 13:2 “While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
While fasting, the Holy Spirit spoke to them and gave them direction. We too can be directed by the Lord if we seek Him through prayer and fasting.
When we deny our natural cravings, our spiritual antennas become more attuned. We become more sensitive to His voice as we divest ourselves of worldly distractions. We are better able to focus on God and submit to His will. This opens the door for more of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Fasting and mourning are closely associated in the Bible. Two examples of this are found in Ezra and Nehemiah.
Ezra 10:6: “Then Ezra rose up from before the house of God and went into the chamber of Jehohanan the son of Eliashib: and when he came thither, he did eat no bread, nor drink water: for he mourned because of the transgression of them that had been carried away.”
Nehemiah 1:4: “And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven.”
From these Scriptures, we see that fasting and travail (a prayer burden from the Lord that brings crying and tears) were combined. Both men were fasting for the repentance of God’s people. How we need this same kind of intercession today. Here were men so burdened for the sins of their people that they fasted, travailed, and prayed.
Day 1: DEFEATING THE SPIRIT OF PHARAOH
Friday, February 25th, 2022
Scripture Text: Exodus 8:1 “And the LORD spoke to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me.”
Today I'd like to talk about the spirit of Pharaoh and as go into that, let us just look back a little of the story of Moses. As most of you already know that the Pharaoh kept the Israelites contained in bondage for 439 years and he achieved that by breaking their spirit and over time had them in total bondage. This same spirit of oppression is also coming against us today, through the unrealistic mandates that have been heavily placed upon us all within all nations, by the authoritarian governments that are overlooking us. Now we all know this is ultimately making the way for the antichrist to come on the scene, but while the remnant church is still around, we have authority over this oppressing spirit through the power of the Holy Spirit. Just like the children of God back in the time of Moses, many within the church are putting up with more than we must. Imagine today the enemy is oppressing people within their homes, to addictions, to fear, to anxiety and oppression more now than ever. Many have forgotten that we as the church have the power, authority, and dominion over satan and all his devices, but satan wants many to think we do not have that authority and would prefer to keep us contained and beaten down, just like the Israelites.
So, what is the meaning of Pharaoh?
Well Pharaoh means the Sun of the Sun. The Egyptian kings who were named pharaohs were regarded as gods and the spirit of Pharaoh has also to do with the destruction of good things in their infancy.
So, the Pharaoh was the one who gave the instruction around the time of Moses birth that all Israelite male Israelite infants must die and as you know the story goes that God intervened and baby Moses was delivered into the very hands of the Pharaohs daughter.
Exodus 2:5-6 “Then the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river. And her maidens walked along the riverside; and when she saw the ark among the reeds, she sent her maid to get it. And when she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby wept. So she had compassion on him, and said, “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.”
Then Moses grew up in the house of Pharaoh and prospered until he saw how his people were being treated and killed an Egyptian task master for excessively beating a Hebrew slave. So Pharoah now pursued Moses who fled to Midian for 40 years until he had the encounter in the burning bush. So, when God sent Moses to Pharaoh he said “let my people go” and Pharaoh answered “is the Lord I know not the Lord” (Exodus 5:1-2) for Pharaoh's heart was hardened that the Lord had to bombard him with ten plagues and even after the ten plagues he continued to pursue the Israelites until God brought about His perfect will to show His power.
Now please note that every born-again Christian was rescued from the spiritual Egypt that is the place of rebellion and of wickedness against God, thus everyone needs to address these forces from Egypt and cast them out one at a time from their life. We do this so that we can move forward victoriously in our Christian walk. The spirit of Pharaoh comes after us, to stop our God-given destinies and tries to stop us from moving forward regarding God's perfect plan is for each of our lives. So, the spirit of Pharaoh is a very stubborn spirit that that likes to see people in bondage, just like in the story of Moses.
So, Pharaoh means destroyer and the spirit of Pharaoh is a strong man, who is a principal demon that either controls a nation, a city, a person, or family etc. So, this spirit will never allow a slave to be free. He curtails your spiritual, physical, financial marital and all other freedoms, so that you will not be able to live your full potential for the Lord. The spirit of Pharaoh is the spirit that destroys kids with divine leadership potential, and we can see that today with the mandates. You only must look about at your own life in how the devil has tried to destroy your destiny. Many of us have been called to be leaders and to move forward in freedom. To be the warriors that God is raising up in these end-times, but this spirit will try to do everything to come against us achieving that if we allow it to precious saints.
The bible says in John 10:10 that the devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy. For he is a thief, and the spirit of Pharaoh is sent by Satan as a principal demon, as a principality spirit to control people's life’s and stop them from getting into the freedom that God destined us to walk in precious saints. We only must see what is happening all around us today, for this spirit is in full motion against all people. This spirit brings oppression, depression, anxiety etc and it will try to bring poverty and bring people down to the poverty line. It will bring marital distress. This spirit of Pharaoh is any spirit that tries to challenge your God and His protection, His provision, and His power. The spirit of Pharaoh is a spirit of sorcery, black magic, witchcraft divination and will threaten anyone that wants to see people being set free from its dominant power. The spirit of Pharaoh denies your benefits and subjects you to rigorous bondage, it is a spirit that refuses to allow God's people to go to their promised land where their slavery is over.
There is a Pharaoh that may have stopped your father from progressing in life, and is determined to also stop you?
There is a Pharaoh that maybe hindering your breakthroughs and wasting your opportunities?
There is a Pharaoh that may have put you in bondage and you were not even aware?
There is a Pharaoh that may have caged your potentials?
There is a Pharaoh that maybe limiting your achievements?
There is a Pharaoh that maybe boosting his dominance over you and whispering, “where is your God”?
There is Pharaoh that maybe holding you down to the same spot, that you were last year?
Precious saints if that is you today then you need to deal with that Pharaoh, if you want to fulfill your divine destiny while we await the Lords return.
Satan, like Pharaoh, does not want you to "Go.", though the message was clear and simple, "Let my people go that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness" (Ex. 5:2). After it became obvious that Moses was not going to give up, so Pharaoh attempted to negotiate. See satan also wants us to settle for something less, so that we do not walk in the perfect will of God. That is why Pharaoh offered four alternative proposals to substitute for God’s plan, so let us see what they were.
1. Pharaoh said stay in Egypt: Yes stay "in the land" (Exodus 8:25) for it was as if he was saying, "You can be a worldly Christian and you can believe all you want, just stay where you are." Now the problem with that is we can’t stay where we are and be where God wants us to be. Salvation is a journey and when God calls us out of Egypt, we must forsake Egypt. Abraham had to leave Ur, Lot had to leave Sodom, the Prodigal must leave the pigpen. Noah "condemned" the world. It is a lie of the devil, that we can have faith without following God, life without leaving, or a crown without a cross. To Stay in Egypt today Is like us staying on a sinking ship.
2. Pharaoh said don’t go too far: Yes Don’t "go very far" (Exodus 8:28) for if Satan cannot keep you from going, he will at least try to keep you from going too far. The modern-day Pharaoh’s say, "don’t get carried away with all this religious stuff.” “Don’t be an extremist or a fanatic, for a little religion is alright, but just don’t go too far” “Yes you can read the word of God, but you do not have to believe in it." And unfortunately, many today in our families have been used by this spirit to hinder our walks. But what is worse is many listen to this spirit through these willing vessels and essentially take the devils advice to not be full on for the Lord. This type of Christian will settle right on the border of worldliness, and they just hug the boundary. For they live in the shadow of the Sphinx with one foot in the world and one in the kingdom of God. The problem with listening to Pharaoh’s advice precious saints is when he says not to "go very far," it means if you follow this wrong advice your spiritual life will "not go far." at all and be ineffective.
3. Pharaoh said just keep it Private and Personal: "You who are men" go but leave your families behind (Exodus 10:11). It was as if Pharaoh was saying, "If you have to embrace the Bible, please keep it to yourself. At least don’t be one of these Evangelicals. If you want to go, fine, but leave those you love here in Egypt. Just the men, please. " Now today he would say, "just the women and children please" for that is what most churches are made up of today with more women believers and the men have been kept in bondage. Somehow the devil has convinced people that this Christian stuff is alright for women and children but keep the men away. It is time for the men to arise and be what God has called you to be.
WHEN GOD HAS A MESSAGE, HE NEEDS A MAN OR WOMAN TO SPEAK ON HIS BEHALF! ARE YOU THAT MAN OR WOMAN GOD IS LOOKING FOR TODAY WITHIN THIS ENDTIME HOUR? REMEMBER GOD WILL RAISE A MOSES, HE WILL RAISE A DEBORAH, HE WILL RAISE AN ELIJAH, HE WILL RAISE AN ESTHER, HE WILL RAISE A JEREMIAH, HE WILL RAISE A RUTH, HE WILL RAISE AN EXEKIEL, HE WILL RAISE A MIRAIM, HE WILL RAISE AN ISAIAH, HE WILL RAISE A PRISCILLA, HE WILL RAISE A JOHN THE BAPTIST!
4. Pharaoh said do not take the sacrifice: Go if you must but may " Go, serve the Lord; only let your flocks and your herds be kept back. Let your little ones also go with you." (Exodus 10:24). Leave your cattle here. Cattle represented their wealth, their food, their necessities of life, but it was something more than that. The cattle were necessary if there was to be sacrifice. Satan does not want us to have a faith that involves any sacrifice. He wants to water down the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and he can also achieve this by getting the believer to live lukewarm lifestyles. Unfortunately, he has succeeded by getting many to be neither hot or cold and the Lord has said He will vomit them out. A lukewarm Christian is one that wants all the benefits of the cross without conforming to who His character is. The truth is precious saints if you want your condition to change, then you need to reposition yourself and sometimes that means you need to travel with those that are willing to lay their lives down for the Lord. See many are willing spiritually to kneel at the cross, but very few are willing to get on that cross spiritually, crucifying the flesh and live daily sanctified lives.
SO HOW DOES ONE MOVE FORWARD?
Well, that happens we identify the spirit operating against us and we deal with it head on. See in some cases you can even try to move to different locations, to another state to another country etc, but this thing will follow you until you deal with it from a spiritual level precious saint. So not only is deliverance required from this spirit and we will help you today, but a firm standing on God’s word is also essential daily to renew the mind and have the mind of Christ. So, let's look at Exodus 13:21-22 “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. 22 He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.”
So, God has promise us here in the above scripture that He will give unto His people divine protection with a pillar fire hallelujah! Yes, He will give unto His people divine protection, and He will deliver us from all those things that potentially could bring us into bondage or destroy us precious saints.
This spirit of Pharaoh will always try to pursue control, limit, restrict and stop you from spending time with God precious saints and the only thing that this spirit responds to is death. Yes, for the story of Pharaoh and the children of Israel in Egypt is vitally important for us to learn from and to reflect on with what is happening around us today. Remember that n
