Why the Spirit of Death Is Rising Today—and How We Can Conquer It

by | May 23, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

The spirit of death is running rampant throughout this earth, and its forerunner is the spirit of fear. But God’s Word tells us that Jesus came to this earth to undo the works of Satan. If this is so, and we know that it is, then why are these spirits so strong upon this earth today? Let’s consider some of the reasons and what we can do to conquer this spirit of death and its buddy, fear.

First John 3:8 says, “Whoever practices sin is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was revealed, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” This Scripture clearly explains why Jesus came to this earth: to destroy the works of the devil. We read in the four Gospels that He came, and He indeed fulfilled His purpose. So why are these demonic forces so strong upon the earth now?

Maybe there is more to this gospel truth that isn’t being taught as it should be today. When Jesus ascended into heaven to be with the Father, He announces the arrival of another. Who is the other arrival? Holy Spirit. “Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is expedient for you that I go away. For if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you. But if I go, I will send Him to you” (John 16:7). And Holy Spirit is the same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead and dwells in the followers of Christ (see Rom. 8:11-14).

This helper, Holy Spirit, is sent to us for many reasons. One of these is to empower us with God’s strength. Jesus tells us in Luke 10:19 that He gives to us all of His authority over the devil: “Look, I give you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. And nothing shall by any means hurt you.” This isn’t so we can be proud and arrogant, but that we wield His authority over our enemies and walk in the victory He gave to us. Romans 8:37 says it this way, No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”

God does not intend for us to fight these demonic spirits such as fear and death in our own strength, but in His. The word of the Lord in Zechariah 4:6b says, “‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.”

With these great promises comes great responsibility. The church eagerly accepts the promises but often ignores the responsibility. And in doing so, the works of Satan—along with his demonic forces of the spirit of death and the spirit of fear—tread upon our territory where they should not be. They take advantage of the areas where the church chooses to remain weak. But we do not have to choose to remain weak. One word of faith, spoken with authority, will send the enemy on the run.

Proverbs 18:21 states the fact of the power that we have been given, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

The Spirit of the Lord is stirring a message for the body of Christ within my spirit. And it is all about taking down the enemy, Satan, his evil spirits of fear and death, and all the destruction they and those who cooperate with them. It’s radical indeed. And it is beginning to come forth from deep within. I can hardly wait to release this in the up-and-coming online healing course, “Conquering the Spirit of Death”, and I will share what I am able to here in posts as well. But you must first understand the basics and believe what He says. And what are these basic truths?

  1. Jesus came to undo the wicked works of the devil.
  2. He gave to us all of His authority.
  3. We are more than conquerors.
  4. And we possess the power of life and death in our words.

Christians are being surrounded by a spirit of fear and a spirit of death that are aligned with an antichrist spirit. Their purpose is to steal, to kill and to destroy us (see John 10:10). In order to walk in the life and the life in abundance that Jesus came to give us (also found in John 10:10), we must be willing to fight the good fight of faith (see 1 Tim. 6:12.). We must get radical and become more than conquerors. We must learn what this means and follow the leading of the Spirit of the living God in these latter days.

The Lord has me turning to all situations in life right now, whether it be in our physical body, our relationships, our daily provision, our nations, our governments or our borders. He is bringing many years of study to remembrance and thoughts He planted in my spirit for a time such as this to disarm the enemy and his wicked attacks against us. Even though these spirits of fear and death are passing through the earth, we are not harmed but protected from it all. The world will know of the ones who truly believe and walk in the power of the Spirit, and they will run to us for help.

I pray that you will join me. {eoa}
