Prophetic Word Clears Up the Confusion Over Who Rules the Earth

by | Apr 26, 2022 | Prophetic Insight

A reader, Kathy Privitera, was confused so she sent me this email:

Jesus says that Satan is the prince and even god of this world. But God is the one who sets up authority and leaders. He takes one down and puts one in place (Dan. 2:21). Though Satan is the god of this world, God still has ultimate authority and control?

My logical head wants to understand how can Satan be the prince of this world and God the one who sets up the authority putting leaders in place? Can you expound on that?

My Response to Kathy:

Satan was the prince of the power of the air … but then ALL authority was given to Jesus at His resurrection, so perhaps Satan has no power left unless we choose to believe he has power. The Bible says, “According to our faith …” I choose to believe Satan has no power. Many choose to believe he has great power. Journal and ask the Lord what HE believes about the power of Satan.

Kathy, here are a few verses to consider:

“And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth'” (Matt. 28:18, NASB1995).

“He called the 12 together, and gave them power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases” (Luke 9:1, NASB1995).

“Then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death” (1 Cor. 15:24-26, NASB1995).

Jesus Speaks Through Kathy’s Journaling:

The only power the enemy has is the power you give him with your words, with your attention, with your belief in the whispers he speaks. Your focus is to be on Me. Look to Me, the Author and Finisher of your faith.

With fire in His eyes, God says: “Am I not God Almighty? Did My Son not destroy the works of the enemy? What you see in the world is the remnant of his temper tantrum, trying to make others believe he is god and that he has power. What you see is everyone agreeing with him, including some of My very own children. He has whispered so loud for so long that people have agreed to give their very souls over to him. You are not to listen. Every word you hear you are to bring it to the scrutiny of the Word of God and what I have done through My Son. Did My Son not make a show of Satan and the demons, an open display of their defeat so all of heaven could see?

“They are crushed by the heels of your feet. It would do well for you to remember that. It would do well for you to remember your place seated in heavenly places at My right hand in Christ. Do you honestly think Satan has any power left? What would it look like if all of My church, My body would begin to speak what I have already declared? What would it look like for My children to begin to speak to their situations what I have already declared and to agree with Me?”

(It is almost as if I see Him correcting the body of Christ for their position of weakness, refusing the very gifts God is handing to them. Instead, they are deceived, thinking it is more humble to stay sick, broke, and without.)

“That isn’t humility, Kathy. That is arrogance — to refuse God’s gifts!

“Take off the religious cloaks and wear My robes of righteousness, and walk out all that I have provided for you. You, Kathy, are to meditate on the 12 gifts My cross provided for you. You are to ponder them until they become part of your natural walk and new life in Me! My life flowing in and through you. You have asked to be a carrier of My presence with the fragrance of Christ. Sit with Me. Commune with Me and let these truths become realities in your life.”

(It is as if I hear the demons of doubt, unbelief, wavering, double-mindedness, screech, and howl clinging, or trying to cling, to remain. I see the battle waging. They don’t want to obey the Word of the Lord, and they do not want me to fully realize my place as a daughter of the Most-High God. They have known all along who the body of Christ is supposed to be. They just didn’t want me to know. These demons don’t want the church and body of Christ to know.)

“Today it stops. Quit doubting your calling, My anointing on your life, and the plans I have placed in your heart. Quit doubting your assignments and even your prophetic giftings.

“You give ear to too many voices. It is time to narrow down those who have access to your heart and to your ear. We are done wavering, Kathy. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are single-minded with your assignment. The progression will be quick. Your foundation needs to be strong and sturdy. What you have been praying and asking for is being released. These questions are for babes. You know who you are in Christ. You know your authority. Pick it up and use it. No more dilly-dallying. Your confidence is in Us, the Godhead. You are not walking in pride when you walk in your authority. Quite the opposite; it is a humbling unto the leadership of your Lord Jesus Christ. It is submitting and receiving all that My Son did for you and gave to you.

“With a roar, you will rise up and take the place that We have positioned for you.” (As I hear these words, the compassion of Christ erupts within me.) “On the waves of compassion, Jesus fulfilled His calling and finished His assignment.

“Kathy, it will be with compassion that you minister to those I send your way.

“Satan is defeated and everything he has to offer you (sickness, lack, fear, doubt, hopelessness, depression, rejection) is defeated. And I would like for you to stop thinking this world is coming to an end. I would rather you see My glory flood the earth like the waters cover the sea. I would rather you put your faith in Me and not the age-old doctrines you have been taught.” {eoa}
