I hear the Lord saying He is giving us “air superiority” to deal with the ruling spirit over the nation that is trying to strangle the life out of this nation. The spirit is also trying to mangle the life of this nation. He is saying we can now take out these ruling spirits because of the air power you have in the heavenly realm. Exodus 17 is a good picture of warfare in the heavens as it works together with the ground forces. This passage is about when the Israelites are facing the Amalekites. God gave Moses a very specific and unusual battle plan. He told Moses to go to the high place and hold up the rod of authority. Joshua was to go down to the battlefield. Moses had the air superiority to allow Joshua to take the ground. Aaron and Hur held Moses’ arms up. His ability to hold the authority of God up in the air is what gave Joshua the ability to defeat the enemy on the ground.
“The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. Moses said to Joshua, ‘Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.’ As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.” (Exodus 17:8-9,11-13; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Ask the Lord how to intercede to defeat Leviathan as he operates in the airwaves, twisting truth and wreaking confusion and division in the earth.
Boldly ask God for the spoils of spiritual warfare. We are not fighting expecting nothing in return.
Ask God what your spiritual battlefield looks like. Who is working on the ground that you can battle in the heavenlies for – a President, a Congressman, a family member, a business owner, someone in the military?
Determine to walk in unity with the brethren. Repent and forgive and keep going. Hold up each others’ arms.
A prayer you can pray:
God, show us how to break the back of Leviathan in intercession – in the air waves where he works. Then, we can get the spoils. We will look for victory over abortion as we defeat the enemy over the court system. We are going to see the harvest we are looking for once there has been enough victory in the atmosphere, as we intercede for the lost. We must persist and not grow weary. We must work together, Church, to keep it up around the clock, and not let the enemy take any ground back! Let’s work to get the air superiority over our ancient foe, so that we begin to see the earth realm give up its spiritual treasures in darkness. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
God has given us the keys to use His spiritual authority to gain air superiority in intercession, so that the spiritual ground wars can be won.
