Bring It On!

You ever been challenged and you've just had enough and so you throw down the gauntlet and say, "bring it on!"? Well, that's where I'm at.
No,it's not a physical fight that I'm referring to, nor is it a verbal exchange.
I'm talking about a spirit battle line that has been drawn and I've had all I'm going to take and it's time to throw down.

For some time Satan has just been pestering, hounding, pushing, threatening, and I have fought back, enough to get him to back off a bit, but soon enough, there he was again. He's attacked me emotionally. He's come after my personal finances, my family, my church, friends around me... just one thing after another. I shared at church awhile back that I'd suddenly be awakened in the middle of the night with an overwhelming feeling of death. I'd literally hear Satan taunting me that he was going to take me out, that I'd never see my daughter graduate high school. He's told me over and over that I was wasting my time with the church in East Galesburg because when it was all said and done, the church and my ministry would lie in ruin. The list could go on and on for some time. The devil has just tormented me, robbed me of sleep, robbed me of joy and peace, pushed me to the point that I at times was so weary all I could do was lay in the floor at night and cry. Last week, he crossed the line with me and righteous anger rose up in me and I've told him, "bring it on!"

I won't go into detail, but suffice it to say that some witches in the area sacrificed some snakes and tried to place a curse on my church and my home. I'm confident that they thought this would strike fear in my heart and in the hearts of those around me. Quite the contrary, you pushed just the right button this time that got me angry. I hope you are reading this, because I'm standing up to your challenge and I proclaim that "greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world." Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, He is my strength, my stronghold, my fortress, my supplier, my peace, and because of the blood of Jesus Christ I am already victorious over you and the one whom you represent! You are already defeated by the blood of Jesus Christ! Bring it on. I have no fear and I declare to you today that you are defeated, and in the Name of Jesus Christ you are now and will be subject to the power that lives in me through the infilling presence of the Holy Ghost. You've pushed the wrong guy one too many times. I declare that righteousness will be proclaimed in the streets of Knox County, that souls are going to be saved, the deaf shall hear, the blinded eyes shall see, the bound shall be set free and the Name of Jesus Christ will be exalted in this City and County. You've had your reign over East Galesburg long enough. Your physical altars in East Galesburg have been torn down and we are now dismantling them in the spirit realm as well. Your stronghold over East Galesburg is being torn down and a new tower of refuge is being raised up in Jesus Name! You are defeated NOW! No more defensive posturing on my part, I and my church are launching all all out offense beginning in East Galesburg, then moving into the streets of Galesburg and all of Knox County. The spirit of fear is defeated. The spirit of sexual perversion is already defeated and we will drive it out of this county, in Jesus Name. Yeah, bring it on. We're up to the fight, and we stand victorious already in Jesus Name!
