Weapon Grade Prayer

We recently saw all to clearly yet another display of the Enemy of the Human Race as he engineered another assault against the creation of God. 

Panic. Fear. Pain. Sorrow. Anger. Death.

He deals in Death like Jesus deals in Life.

All too often people are left with perhaps the worst situation after all the dust settles and the media goes home.


Hopelessness in not knowing who it is or how to fight the Ancient Enemy of Life.

So we gather. The indomitable human spirit collectively, even inherently, gathers. 

Candles are lit. Men speak. People pray.

As surely as they fail to recognize the Enemy, they direct their prayers toward various notions of cosmic entities and gods who might, in a show of mercy or satiation of blood lust, pull back a hair off the weapon that targets the fragile creation.

Yes folks, in it and through it all, God is once again on the hot seat for screwing with the Human Race.

God bless them in their ignorance, but Lord, let them hear.

Prayer not as begging sessions with no assurance of answers, but formidible assaults against the Gates of Hell which Jesus says will not prevail against His Church! (Matt. 16:18)

Listen to Paul here:

2 Corinthians 10:3 (AMP)  - For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. 
Paul says "we are not", but it is all too clear that many indeed are.

We can fire off rockets and bombs at Al Qaida, but it's pretty much a band-aid. It's not a flesh thing.

It's spiritual. The battle is spiritual. It must be fought in the spirit realm. It must be fought by warriors with a right spirit nature. A New Creation Spirit. 

The Born-Again Believer is the most battle ready equipped and prepared to be on the Spiritual Battlefield.

Mere human weapons fail us.

Paul says further:

Ephesians 6:12 (AMP)  - For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. 

When The Body of Christ (what is it WE don't GET about that term?) realizes its true strength and potential against what is first a clearly identified Enemy, then It will respond in kind.

It's not rocket science. The problem HAS ALREADY BEEN SOLVED. Jesus took care of it on the Cross.

How we continue to allow this Bully to steal our lunch money and give us the cosmic equivalent to Atomic Wedgies is far more scary to me than the Punk Bully.

Stop wasting valued prayer time in asking God to do something that He has clearly given us authority over in the Name of His Son!

Weaponize Your Prayers! 

Ephesians 6:18 (AMP)  - Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated people). 
There is no begging in there. There is not even a hint of asking in there. 

There is intercession. There is resistance. There is pugnacious attitude.


A Bully is a Bully and all Bullies respond to one thing and one thing only:


James got it:

James 4:7 (AMP)  - So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you. 

Come on. It's where the Believer in Christ lives. It's what we do. Well, I know for sure it's what my wife and I do anyway. We don't give him an inch. Nothing. He gets no ground or gain from us. He is on notice at all times. Always being reminded of his greatest failure. Always reminded of his great defeat on Calvary, which I wear all over me like a finely tailored suit of armor.

Listen to James you Royal Subject Of The King! It's all about Jesus. This Hater of Humanity must see the Lover of Humanity all over you. A fleeing Bully is a defeated Bully.

O Church! If we could all get a glimpse of this glory and bring light to the Present Darkness subjected patrons of the Dark One would run for cover.

It's not just about bombs and psychopaths. It's about Cancer. Diabetes. Sickness. Disease. Pestilence. Poverty. Sin.

The answer has been revealed for centuries, but the Church has turned it into powerless religion. One million candles will not drive out Darkness, but ONE STRONG DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST will drive out a million demons!

Pray as if you already have it and know that JESUS NEVER FAILS!

Boston... there is a Strong Believer who prays over you, intercedes for you, weeps and mourns for you. We have been down this road before many times. Be strengthened and determined and remember that this Liar and Deceiver does not get victory in this.

Keepin' it Real,

Pastor Kevin <><
