Midnight Prayer (2)
Not just the witches, we are also aware that the most dangerous satanic sacrifices and ordinances are usually done in the middle of the night. If God opens our eyes to see what goes on in our society or even around us in the night, we will be shocked. So many people you see looking innocent, honourable, distinguished, excellent and decent in the day get involve in some satanic and devilish activities in the night. This does not stop them from coming to church, belonging to other religious groups, donating money to the religious bodies and charity organisations. Some of these people are actually what I would like to call ‘Moving Satanic Altars'. How can the Christian or the church battle against all these? It's only by engaging in very dynamic, prolonged prayers; especially in the middle of the night. Yes, a lot of testimonies always follow this teaching. They are already coming. But we don’t have the space to put them here now. It’s like midnight prayer is the key - a divine universal key to destroy the works of the enemy. True.
Now, the bible does not keep us ignorant of the demonic, wicked activities that go on in the night hours. Job said, “Do not long for the cover of night; for that is when people will be destroyed [people are cut off in their place]" Job 36:20. And the Psalmist calls it "the terrors of the night" (Psalms 91:5). Then Jesus said that night is the time when the enemy comes to sow tares (Matthew 13:25). You may not believe it, most of the problems we're going through today, were first shot into our life by demonic forces while we were sleeping. And do you know that almost everything about this life is decided in the spirit realm before they manifest in the physical? And this explains why we always see things (blessings, breakthroughs, attacks or problems) in our dreams and visions before we receive them physically. Does it happen to you? The same is with satanic arrows. They are first shot in the spirit realm before they manifest physically. And this happens mostly in the midnight hours.
Nothing happens just like that. There is always a cause in the spirit realm, then the effect in the physical. We must wake up and begin to control our midnight through prayers. This is where we have the battlefield. And our exploits here will determine how great, how powerful, how prosperous, happy and healthy we will become in the daytime. Please, we'll go into the examples of great men and women (including Jesus) in the bible; who won their midnight battles and consequently controlled their day. Yes, spiritual principles are universal. The mode and methods of operation could vary from place to place, but the principles are basically the same. It is still that old Satan and his mischievous dark host. We know that the battle is between the kingdom of God and that of Satan. The battlefield is man. The struggle is about who will control the activities and destiny of man. Whereas God wants to control man for good, the devil and his agents detest man. They hate and envy him; because they know what God has in stock for him. They know the place of man in God's programme. They are aware of the wonderful and blissful destiny that God is preparing for man, so they battle day and night to see how that plan could be derailed. Remember that Satan and rulers of darkness are fallen angels. They have been with God before they were thrown down to the earth because of their disobedience. You and your people are going through all of those problems, attacks and persecutions just because of your destiny and God’s great purpose for your life. Simple! We explained more of this in my book Power of Midnight Prayer
So, what we are highlighting here is that midnight is the main arena for this great battle of the kingdoms and the struggles for destinies. Jesus puts it this way, "The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness." John 10:10. And you know that the thief will always want to come in the cover of the night, in the dark, when he will not be seen or challenged. So also are our enemies and powers of darkness. Now, let's get into the main business. And that is to look at the examples of great men and women in the bible who fought and won the greatest battles of their life in the midnight. We will start with our great master Jesus Christ. Please we will continue next week. Start the midnight battles now. Yes, now! God bless!
