Unlike the Greek god Zeus (god of thunder) our God is not full of wrath and anger, ready to beat up His own. Instead of raising His hands to strike and destroy He spread out His arms in love to hang on a cross, suffer, bleed and die a horrible death. We were the reason He suffered and died. Psalms 145:8-9 says The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works. Jesus is not like Zeus, or the gods of other religions of men. God is not like the religious traditions of men, that have been greatly influenced by Greek philosophy. They have depicted Him to be a schizophrenic God who does both good and evil to mankind. In reality, He is overflowing with compassion and so very slow to anger. He does not work with Satan and demons to carry out evil, to steal, kill or destroy life.
During September 2017 the USA experienced major hurricanes, one after another, causing much death, flooding and destruction. Christian leaders who were influenced by Greek philosophy or Calvinism, said “this is the wrath of God on the USA. God is judging the USA for its sin and evil actions.” We do not worship Zeus, we worship Jesus, who showed us what the Heavenly Father is truly like (see John 14:9). Greek philosophy has greatly distorted many Christians view of the Heavenly Father. I greatly disagreed with this distorted view of the Heavenly Father and shared the things I shared earlier on my Facebook wall. I wrote we have authority over these demonic storms sent to steal, kill and destroy life. Many people agreed with me and we began to pray and take authority over Hurricane Irma as it was heading to the Florida coasts.
Hurricane Irma was causing major destruction on the islands in it’s path as it moved towards Florida. It a was a category 5 hurricane, the worst ever, with winds up to 185mph! A day after sharing my views on Facebook and asking people to pray and take authority over this demonic storm I had a dream that it reached the Florida coast and was immediately reduced to a category 2 hurricane. I shared this on Facebook and rallied more prayer support for Florida. All the weather forecasters said it will hit Florida as a category 5 hurricane and cause major destruction. Florida was preparing for the worst! It hit the Florida Keys as a category 5 hurricane but the next day as soon as it reached the Florida mainland it immediately went from a category 5 to a category 2 hurricane, to the shock of the weather forecasters!
I have seen major storms and tornadoes change course when we have taken authority in Jesus’ name. Jesus said “peace be still” to a storm and the waves ceased (see Mark 35-39). The origin of the storm was not from God. So He took authority over this demonic storm that was trying to take them out. The Body of Christ needs to rise up and understand the authority that was given to us by God in the beginning. What a gift we have been given from heaven! Let’s use it!
Do you desire to be used by Jesus in healing and deliverance ministry? If so, this book can be a great tool to get you there. Mark has been teaching this subject for many years, all over the world. The fruit he has seen from this teaching has been amazing. Thousands have been healed and or delivered as leaders have put these principles into practice.
