What ist he Purpose of the Church: Spiritual Warfare – Great Commission Mark 16:15-18
15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they[a] will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. – the church must fight to save unsaved souls from captivity and witchcraft.
what is the purpose of the church
If the church would unite as a unit through prayer, fasting and spiritual warfare together, then there can be a defeat to the powers of the kingdom of darkness over people, churches, land, cities, nations.
“From the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence and the violent take it by force. Matt. 11:12.
If the church would yield themselves and raise up against the powers of the kingdom of darkness, God will use in these last days; we will be:
1. Breaking bonds of wickedness in our territories and cities (Is. 58:6)
2. Setting captives free (Is. 49:24-26, Luke 4:18)
3. Enforcing the manifestation of God’s will and purposes (Eph. 3:10; Rom. 8:19)
4. Standing in our priestly office (1 Pet. 2:9)
5. Repairing and rebinding desolations of many generation and ruined cities (Is. 61: 4)
6. Causing God’s kingdom to come on earth and His will to be done (Lk. 11:2)
7. Causing the veil of darkness over cities and nations to be lifted and destroyed (Is. 25:7)
8. Recovering lands the enemy has taken through the ignorance of people and their involvement in idolatry (Deut. 2:24-25)
9. Breaking the power of curses and ancient covenants over the lands and the people (2 Kings 2:19-21)
The church of believers do so much in the natural and truly do not understand the power of prayer in numbers to combat the enemy. Angels wait for our command through our prayers.
Did you know when there are earthquakes, that there is usually a great battle in the heavenly first before the earthquake is released? Everything happens in the heavenly first before it happens on land. There is a great battle. Daniel 10:12
“12 Then he said to me, Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.
Jesus Christ makes it clear that the only way to take the Kingdom of Heaven is by violence when the church has taken its dominion and authority.
