Prophetic encouragement 8.10.2022
Johanna’s blog in English, translated by Miikkapekka Heikkilä
While studying the Bible I understand that during this week (08102022) in biblical timeline in the Old Testament the Ark of the Covenant was brought to the Temple of Solomon from the mount of Zion.
”Then King Solomon summoned into his presence at Jerusalem the elders of Israel, all the heads of the tribes and the chiefs of the Israelite families, to bring up the ark of the LORD’s covenant from Zion, the City of David. All the Israelites came together to King Solomon at the time of the festival in the month of Ethanim, the seventh month. When all the elders of Israel had arrived, the priests took up the ark, and they brought up the ark of the LORD and the tent of meeting and all the sacred furnishings in it. The priests and Levites carried them up, and King Solomon and the entire assembly of Israel that had gathered about him were before the ark, sacrificing so many sheep and cattle that they could not be recorded or counted. The priests then brought the ark of the LORD’s covenant to its place in the inner sanctuary of the temple, the Most Holy Place, and put it beneath the wings of the cherubim. The cherubim spread their wings over the place of the ark and overshadowed the ark and its carrying poles. These poles were so long that their ends could be seen from the Holy Place in front of the inner sanctuary, but not from outside the Holy Place; and they are still there today. There was nothing in the ark except the two stone tablets that Moses had placed in it at Horeb, where the LORD made a covenant with the Israelites after they came out of Egypt. When the priests withdrew from the Holy Place, the cloud filled the temple of the LORD. And the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled his temple.”
In the New Testament we can read of the woman with the issue of blood. She was determined to be healed just as long as she touched Jesus.
”And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’ ” But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
Both stories speak about the breakthrough of His glory. Now it is time to celebrate, as we near to the celebration of the feasts of Tabernacle. This month is a defining month for new beginnings. In Gods prophetic calendar the month of Tishrei begins with the blowing of the trumpets and with His one commandment: that all of His own people should listen to the sound of the shofar (the trumpet). It is a WAKE-UP CALL! We need this wake-up call: WAKE UP! This starts a 10 day period of seeking Gods will and turn from your own ways and back to Him. To repent, to turn back, to be renewed in your mind.
When God gives a wake-up call, it is time to turn back from the things that came between you and Him. This call is simple: COME CLOSER TO HIM. The day of atonement (Jon Kippur) follows this period and it is a very holy day for the Jews. We want to be cleansed by the blood of the Lamb give all our sins for them to be covered. We will be completely renewed for His purposes.
1 John 1:9
”If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
Now, we come closer to that celebration of the Glory. For this exact time, the bringing of the Ark of the Covenant, the temple was filled with the glory of God. By touching Jesus (the glory) the woman was healed. Now it is time to align yourself to Him and so to His breakthrough and His options for you. Hallelujah!
Now it is time to prepare yourself and to be alert. Because the devil wants to hinder your breakthrough and strangle the life out of the followers of Jesus. The darkness will try to hit you with tiredness, lack of passion, prayerlessness and lack of worship. The spirit of python speaks lies to entice you to witchcraft and feel yourself completely exhausted. It wants to overwhelm you with hopelessness. No desire to pray, to worship, no desire for anything.
The Spirit of Pythons goal is to cut your connection to God. It wants to strangle your prayer life and cloud your ears from the voice of the Holy Spirit. Both are so important for a victorious life with Jesus. You want to wrap yourself to a blanket and disappear from the world. Python aims for the warriors and for them to give up their weapons. Jentezen Franklin says: “The python spirit aims for one thing: your breath. It’s tactic is to wrap slowl around its victim and to start squeezing. Little by little, tighter and tighter it will stifle and wear out its victim, until the lungs are destroyed”
Do you feel like the passion for God is lost? And the desire for the Word, prayer and worship is gone? That is the tactic of the spirit of python. Don’t the battles ever end? Trouble after trouble, at home, at work, in your marriage. Those are the works of the spirit of python, recognize them!
This spirit of divination wants to strangle the life of the Holy Spirit in you. It wants to cut away the close relationship to God and hinder your seeing and prophesying. At first the spirit of python just looks for its place and wraps itself smoothly. You won’t notice it before it starts to strangle. The deadly plan – this spirit reminds you of your past and your past wounds. It will overwhelm you with passing circumstances and wants to make you compromise with the Word and with the Holy Spirit.
”Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her.”
Paul was irritated by the situation. We are as well: when the demonic spirit tries to attack us, we feel irritated and annoyed. Python spirit attacked when they were going to the prayer room. This spirit wanted stop you from going forward. It knows that it has no power in the presence of God, so it wants to prevent you from going to the prayer and worship meeting. Python looks for when you are embracing your old wounds rather than you asking God to heal you. Demonic spirit wants you to feel empty on the inside like you were dead.
Why am I writing about Python Spirit?
Now has begun the time when the glory breaks in. Our praise and worship has shifted to the Apostolic level to bring God kingdom down to the earth. Now it is time to be wise and to be awake, protect yourself from the darkness that by suffocating tries to isolate ja destroy God’s already started plans. Protect yourself of dullness and hopelessness. We are AWAKE and we are using are weapons of warfare and that means we WORSHIP.
We have authority in Jesus.
Our weapons are PRAISE, WORSHIP, PROPHECY AND PRAYER.
Acts 16:25-26 They prayed and praised God —the freedom came!
”About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.”
Python wants to stop praying and praising but prayer and praise are they very key for getting free from Python Spirit.
Let’s worship Almighty God and declare His greatness and celebrate His goodness. We are awake, alert and we stay in God’s protection. Now it is time to worship WHOLE HEARTEDLY AND WITH EVERYTHING WE HAVE.
