"Intercessors: War in the Heavenlies
- the Shaking Continues"
By Bob Blase
While what I say here refers specifically to the Pacific Northwest, I also believe these principles are fully applicable elsewhere – and that includes
what is happening in the greater United States of America.
Praying Church: By the Spirit of God, Intensify Your Efforts
We are in the heat of a raging spiritual war. Do not stop believing.
Do not stop praying. Let the Spirit refresh you with renewed peace and hope. Our help is in the name of the Lord. Do not be afraid, the Lord of hosts is with us. "...The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. Elijah was a human being, even
as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops" (Jas. 5:16-18, NIV).
from One Vantage Point
We, of course, see only in part and know in part. Here's my take regarding some of the conditions in the spirit realm over the Pacific Northwest, including Alaska (because in the spirit realm they are
linked): Demonic strongholds which have attempted to control our region and the minds of the people, have been under siege by God's massive angelic forces for over 2 months now. God's angels are pounding these demonic strongholds day and night. Many prayer
warriors are now engaged in this battle, whether they know it or not. I have been there since the assault began and my assignment to prepare for this war began more than 4 years ago.
The Mercy of God On Display
The power of God could quickly overcome these demon princes, but it could also take out some of the people who are bound to them. The measured force and duration of the battle is the mercy of God to redeem even the wicked men and women.
God's heart is for repentance: "The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." (2 Pet. 3:9, NIV)
We are not in a time of final judgment, so don't think of the 'Sodom and Gomorrah' model. We are in a time where God is asking of all men to repent and turn to Him, so think of the 'Nineveh' model.
Few people would deny that things are being shaken. From a heavenly perspective, some things must be shaken down, while other things are to be shaken loose. The shaking in the natural is, unfortunately, absolutely
necessary. There must come a shaking loose of our minds as beliefs, philosophies, affinities, identities, values, even relationships are all being shaken. The demonic influences (princes of the power of the air) have lulled us into a state of spiritual slumber
and apathy. This is why so many people are having experiences of waking up in their minds and hearts to the true state of things. This is true for both the spiritual realm and the natural realm.
Being Awakened - Do Not Give
Up the Fight!
This awakening process has been compared to being red-pilled, as was seen in the movie THE MATRIX. The shaking is affording people the opportunity to choose to side with God's Spirit and break away from the demonic
mind-control, and acknowledge the truth. Christ paid the whole price on the Cross. Being born again makes us one spirit with the Lord.
Christ is moving to help purge the influence of the darkness over our souls; for
the very function of His salvation is to work its way into our hearts and souls, where we actually live from. It is the work of conforming us into His image. He is working to practically redeem us (buy back by increments), and restore our souls. This process
involves our free will and is the major reason why the process takes time. I do not know how long this process will continue. I do know that by the Spirit of God we are to remain at our posts of prayer and of influence for the Kingdom's sake in the natural
realm. Our faith is the victory that overcomes the world.
Do not give up the fight! "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up" (Gal. 6:9, NIV).
