Control (Part 2)…

I have a lot of pain in my heart…

The Lord is judging the spirit of control – or witchcraft – and I am feeling the pain…

He hates the spirit of control – there is a spirit which has been in operation in His Church – which has tried to control the finances of the people of God…

This is an abomination to the Lord…

He hates this…

God loves a cheerful giver…

He does not put pressure on us to give – there is not a ‘secret agenda’ – no ‘gun at our head’ – but this spirit does…

It ‘twists’ things to make us feel ‘second class’ if we are not giving towards ‘its’ agenda – ‘its’ agenda because it is not the Lord’s agenda – it is the agenda of that spirit exercising control over that Church – ruling in that area of the Churches life – and if another spirit is ruling in an area of the Churches life and not the Holy Spirit then there is a death in the spirit in this area in the life of that Church…

As leaders of the Church of God we must ‘stand clear’ of this spirit…

We must ‘stand clear’ of all control with respect to finances – unless the Lord builds the house – anything else is the spirit of control and what is controlled is not free – the gun is pointed at our heads – and the Lord doesn’t like this…

If the Lord has not worked generosity in your heart – for whatever reason – or He has not called you to give (financially) – for whatever reason – at this point in time to your local congregation please – in the Name of the Lord – do not take on guilt from this spirit – for this is what it is – a ‘guilt producing’ – ‘expectation producing’ – ‘striving producing’ – spirit…

Do not take on guilt…

That is what is in control…

Do not be blind to that – but see it for what it is…

There is so much of this in the Church of God…

We are awaiting the true miraculous…

“What is the true miraculous Andrew?”, you might ask…

The true miraculous is when God gives money without us asking anyone for money…

When God sets His seal over a vision or a ministry and people are directed directly by God to give to that ministry or to that vision without being ‘asked’ or ‘guilt-tripped’ or ‘manipulated’ by man to give in any way, shape or form…

It doesn’t have to be verbal – it can be an unspoken expectation – if this spirit is ruling over a Church or a ministry or a vision – then you will feel compelled – not a godly compelling – to give out of ‘duty’ and out of ‘guilt’ – and if you don’t you will be ‘pushed away’ by this spirit and made to feel ‘outside the club’ – ‘excluded’ – ‘expelled’ – ‘second-class citizen’ – and like you don’t belong – that spirit doesn’t want you there because it wants ‘clones’ there – those who will do and say exactly what it wants them to do and say – and you cannot ‘buy into’ that…

You cannot…

Flee…

Get out…

Uphold them – that Church – in prayer but do not ‘come under’ that spirit – flee…

If the presence of that spirit – the spirit of witchcraft or control – is necessary to ‘run’ that Church then that Church is being ‘choked’ – whether they realise it or not – by that spirit and if you can see it – and feel it in your spirit (the Prophetic among us will see it and feel it – they will be the first to “see”) – then you need to ‘get out’…

Pray from the outside…

Pray from the outside…

Pray from the outside and complete the burden which the Lord has given you…

Once you see that a spirit other than the Holy Spirit is ‘ruling’ over a Church and if the Lord is not giving you authority in that place, i.e. the authority in that place cannot see it and does not want to change, i.e. are happy with the way things are, then you have to leave, you have done the best that you can and you need to continue to pray ‘from the outside’…

Distance yourself so as not to ‘come under’ that control – you cannot agree with it – you cannot otherwise you will ‘come under’ it…

But continue to pray for the Lord’s will to be done and continue to wait for the true Supernatural to be released…

The Supernatural which needs nothing from any man but which trusts solely in the Lord…

What is ‘built’ by that spirit – the spirit of control or witchcraft – will not stand – and is not enduring – it is not being built by the Lord as it has to be ‘propped up’ with control…

What the Lord builds has ‘no regrets’ – ‘no pressure’ – no ‘gun at your head’ – no ‘unspoken expectations’ – set us free Lord from the spirit of control – the spirit of witchcraft – and let us find our fulfilment in You Alone…

Whatever You want to do in this world Lord – fund it from Your abundant supply of riches – give us the hidden treasures of darkness as Your word says – let the wealth of the wicked be stored up for the Righteous – we are seeking You to do Your work in Your way with ‘no strings attached’ – ‘no strings attached’ – You are aware what I am talking about Lord – set us free so that we truly have ‘no strings attached’ in all our dealings in Your House in Jesus Name…

Set us free so that we see Your Abundant, Supernatural Provision flowing in our lives…

I want this Lord – this is what I want – Your Abundant, Supernatural Provision flowing in my life – Thank You Jesus – I feel the Joy – Thank You Jesus that You are ‘all over this’ and that You will provide in Jesus Name…

In our marriages Lord and in our families and in our Churches and in our employment and in our extended families Lord – break all the ties to the spirit of control or witchcraft – and set us free – break these ties Lord – cut them and remove them forever – in the Mighty Name of Jesus – I am feeling the Joy – so that we can walk blameless before You – blameless before You – Holiness – Speak the Blood over our lives and let all the results of witchcraft in our lives ‘fall off’ in the Mighty Name of Jesus – ‘fall off’ forever and stay ‘off’ in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

Praise You Jesus…

I am ‘feeling the Joy’…

Hallelujah!!!

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
