The Power of Salvation

 Psalm 16 v 7 - 11:  "I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

8  I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 
10  For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
11  Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore."

Our Father knew, and Jesus knew, that there was only one way to save the souls of mankind.  Every soul, except one, was doomed to spiritual death, meaning eternal separation from our Father.

Every parent knows the anguish of a missing child, the anxiety, fear, panic of searching, the joy of finding that child alive and well.  We get that from our Heavenly Father who lost us to Satan before the foundation of the world.

A rescue plan was put into action immediately.  It was in response to the frantic SOS, save our souls, from billions of us who had no other hope.  We have just had our annual memorial of the out working of that plan.

Romans 5 v 16 - 18:  "And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
17  For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 
18  Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life."

Salvation is God's free gift to us and it necessitated the death of His Son, to restore life to us.  When Paul cried out, That I may know Him and the power of His Resurrection, this is what we all should be crying for.

The power of salvation opens the door to Heaven.  The alternative is the eternal flames of Hell.  The key to victory is knowing Jesus in a personal relationship, talking to Him, hearing His voice, following that which He says.

And He says use every moment, every opportunity to rescue souls.  If your own child was missing would you carry on your normal daily life?  Or would you throw everything you have into finding that child?  You would leave no stone unturned in the search until your child was safe.

There is a huge rise in the kidnapping of children for ransom.  It's very easy money.  There are police units dedicated to finding those who have been kidnapped.

Over the past few days a dear sister in another country, who is part of our team of Intercessors, was locked in spiritual battle with evil spirits in high places.  Two nights later I woke up discerning serious sexual sin in a man, or men.  It was very strong judgment from God upon whoever it was.

I shared this with my sister in Christ and she told me she had just had a terrible nightmare.  She dreamed she was drugged and being held captive by people running a sex slave ring.  

Prayer continued and yesterday she sent me a testimony from the ministry of Victor Marx, All Things Possible, that a young girl had just been rescued from a paedophile predator, who was on his way to meet her with bad intentions.  Her father had intercepted some strange messages on her cell phone, and called in the police and Victor Marx to assist.  The predator was arrested at the meeting site. To God be the glory!

This is the power of salvation at work.  We trust that the intercession will be carried by the Holy Spirit to rescue many more children before they are harmed, or from these rings and the predators rings are crushed.  There are presently 25 million missing children on the planet at this time.  25 million grieving parents, grandparents, siblings.  

Jesus gave us His authority, His power of attorney, all His ability, to get the job done.  The captives are all around us.  Addicts, alcoholics, suicidal people, depression sufferers, afflicted, sick, mentally oppressed people.  Jesus died to set them free.  He broke their chains, we just need to apply that knowledge to their circumstances, cut off the delusions, fantasies and lies that block them.

If we know Him we must do His will.  

Prayer:  Heavenly Father thank You for the gift of a lifetime.  Salvation from Hell, and all its evil ways.  Lord lead me to a lost soul and give me Your love and compassion to reach and rescue him or her for Your Kingdom.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.
