My Lord Patriarch and members of The Mystical Order in New York and abroad. To God be all the honour and the glory for all the great things He has done for us. Turn with me to your Bibles for our scripture reading. The Book of Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
God does not need you to defeat the devil today. Jesus has already done it and given you the victory. (Colossians 2:15, Romans 8:37) Your part is to enforce the victory by simply standing your ground, which is victory ground. In other words, you “fight” from victory ground by standing. You don’t fight for victory.
In Ephesians 6:10–18, the passage on spiritual warfare, the word “wrestle” appears only once (verse 12), while the word “stand” appears four times—“stand against the wiles of the devil”, “withstand in the evil day”, “having done all, to stand”, “Stand therefore”. (Verses 11, 13–14) Four times the Holy Spirit tells us to stand. Yet, many Christians are focusing on wrestling their way to victory! How come we cannot follow the simple instructions of Jesus but we will follow instructions of man who does not know whether he is going or coming.
My brothers and sisters, you are already on victory ground. You already have everything in Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:21, 23) You are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 1:3) The devil knows this. And that is why his tactic is to deceive you and make you think that you don’t have the victory. Hear me now let Judas walk out of your life and make room for the overflow of God.
So when he attacks you by saying, “Look at that small sum in your bank account! How are you going to pay the bills?” stand your ground. Declare, “I am not trying to be rich. I am already blessed in Christ!” It doesn’t matter how much you have in the bank. You are richly supplied because you are in Christ. And as the need arises, the supply will be there if you believe it. The children of Israel who stored manner for the following realized it spoiled when the tried to use it. God will give you all that you need to sustain you now and forevermore. Don’t worry about a thing my brothers and sisters.
It is the same with healing. The devil will try to attack you with symptoms in your body. He will try to put pain in your body, and make you feel weak here and there, so that you think that you are still sick. He is trying to make you believe that you don’t have your healing. That is the time to be conscious of Jesus’ finished work and declare, “I am not trying to get healed, I am healed! I am standing on the victory ground which Jesus has given me!”
Beloved, it makes a world of difference when you fight from victory and not for victory!You are already on victory ground. You are already blessed with every blessing in Christ. You are already blessed with Mystical abilities to take you to the place where you belong. Hallelujah. I thank God for the seal of Starlight and this Mystical Order. I thank God for the renewing of that sacred key that can unlock many doors. Your faithfulness to God and His word will see you through. I can say much more but I will not weary your patience. I will leave room for His Eminence Sir Eric to water your plants tomorrow. Tuesday we look forward to the eloquence of this humble man of God. So be blessed and stay blessed and God bless us all.
Your servant and brother,
