Are You Under Spiritual Attack – Part 2

If you are under a spiritual attack, here’s what to do: YOU NEED TO BECOME CLOSE TO JESUS.

Closeness to Jesus is the place where power FROM Jesus is transferred into your life to combat against the attacks of the devil.

Listen to some of the things that intimacy with Jesus produces.

INTIMACY with Jesus PRODUCES a harvest in your life.

John 15:1-5 NLT
[1] “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener.

You cannot have any greater form of intimacy than CONNECTION.

God created the BRANCHES to only thrive when in connection.

You don’t go out looking for branches, you go out looking for trees.

Trees HAVE branches…branches do not have trees.

It is the connection that produces the harvest.
It is the connection that provides the nourishment.
It is the connection that precedes growth, fruit, and harvest

Destroy the connection with the VINE or with the TRUNK of the tree, and you have effectively cut off the harvest and the breakthrough.

Revival comes through connection.
Holiness comes through connection.
Peace comes through connection.
Joy comes through connection.

Jesus continues…


[2] He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. [3] You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you.

Here’s a word for you: DON’T MISTAKE THE PRUNING OF JESUS FOR THE ATTACK OF THE DEVIL!

When God wants to produce MORE in your life, it BEGINS with pruning.

Most times, we want more of whatever God desires to give, but we forget the initial act of the process of God blessing us and favoring us, BEGINS with cutting!

Even in the Old Testament, the covenant of God began with cutting something away.

In the New Testament, scripture speaks about the circumcision of the HEART.

God is pruning your life so you will be ready to produce greater blessing, favor, and breakthrough.

Intimacy with Jesus ALWAYS, EVENTUALLY, leads to breakthrough!

[4] Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.

The devil wants to cut you off from Jesus.
Satan wants you to believe that if you walk further away from Jesus, that the attacks will stop, or if you quit pressing forward in your work for God, the attacks will stop…and for a season they might, but they always come back more fiercely.

On the other hand, if you stay attached to Jesus, faithful to Jesus, and remain in the vine, the attack may continue for a season, but they ALWAY GIVE WAY AND SURRENDER TO BREAKTHROUGH.

God’s breakthrough in your life is coming if you stay close to Jesus!

[5] “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.

Intimacy with Jesus ALWAYS, EVENTUALLY, leads to breakthrough!

Intimacy with Jesus always brings restoration

Restoration IS BREAKTHROUGH!

What the devil stole will be replaced!
What the devil destroyed will be rebuilt!
What the devil devoured will be renewed!

Restoration is coming to your life IF YOU LIVE CLOSE TO JESUS.

Breakthrough is coming.
Power is coming.
Help is coming.
Joy is coming.

This is NOT the time to draw back from the Lord.

The Bible says this:

Jeremiah 29:13-14 NLT
[13] If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.

“Wholeheartedly,” speaks of intimacy.

When we look for Jesus with ALL of our heart, there will never be a time when he is not found.

He is waiting on us to seek him and look for him and search for him with ALL OF OUR HEART.

Nothing held back.
Nothing not given.
Everything released into his hand.

When we do this, listen to the result that scripture declares will happen in our life:

[14] I will be found by you,” says the LORD. “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.”

RESTORATION is COMING to those who don’t let the devil steal their intimate walk with Jesus.

You can be sure that God has breakthrough for your life that is greater than the attack you endured or are presently enduring.

The key is to stay close to Jesus.

Intimacy with Jesus ALWAYS, EVENTUALLY, leads to breakthrough!
