Title: THE GOD-CRAFT
Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.Jeremiah 23:24
There is a reason our Heavenly Father is called the Almighty, the Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent God. He fills everything in every direction. He is over everything for us. Glory to God because He is the Almighty and we belong to Him. He has raised us up in Him and now we can walk in this status.
You see, in the world, there is this dread and popular phobia about a certain craft referred to as witchcraft. This is an order which specializes in manipulating the physical by operating certain spiritual mysteries. When bad things happen, the first thing most people think is, there is a witch or wizard behind this. When we see them, all decorated and brandishing their idols as a weapon of mass destruction, everyone cringes. When they threaten, even some believers cower and start shivering.
But, do you even know who you are? God’s word doesn’t even put witches among the category of forces we ‘wrestle’ with. Do they exist? Of course they do. But, to us, they aren’t a factor.
I understood this better when a while ago, I found myself travelling right next to someone I’d best refer to as wizard or some kind of evil spiritual influencer. I won’t go into details but briefly I’d share this.
My encounter with an evil spiritual influencer
My spirit just wasn’t settled and I couldn’t place my hands on why. So I began to pray in the spirit (in tongues) quietly and listening to a gospel message on my phone. This began to unsettle him. I saw him making certain gestures inside the vehicle and it was as if no one was even noticing this. Right there, I was like, ‘Whatever evil you mean here will be nullified today’.
Then, slowly, he turned towards me and gave me this menacing look before bringing out his phone. He knew I’d be watching. He then types the following, ‘Don’t join this’.
When I saw this, I went wild within me. It was as if he could hear me in the spirit. So, I began to address him from there. I was like, “I don’t know you but as long as I’m in this vehicle, its safe arrival is my business. The safety if its passengers is my business. And if you’re here to alter that, then you are my business and you have me to deal with, so game on!”
This boldness and audacity was coming from deep within my spirit. And I knew it was the Holy Ghost in me. This guy tried all he could. He made strange sounds and moved his hands in different directions and again in certain weird gestures. It wasn’t even as if he was mentally challenged because he could understand and communicate well. But Whatever that meant, I arrived my destination safely along with other passengers, to the glory of God.
You see, these guys have a way of causing things to happen. It’s their specialty and that’s why it’s called their ‘craft’. But, glory to God, we also have our crafts. In fact, we have more crafts than they do. We have a craft for setting people free from all holds of the devil. We have a craft for opening doors supernaturally. We have a craft for miracles and much more. This craft I’d like to call the ‘God-craft’. God laughs when He sees them gathering themselves against Him and His people. It’s a gathering for a scattering.
The God-craft is the use of God’s technique for influencing positive change in our spheres of influence. His technique is unbeatable. His craft is unstoppable. And His ways are unsearchable. This is the only craft that can ‘uncraft’ witchcraft. This craft isn’t limited to a certain time of the day to be put into effect. No, it is effectual beyond the boundaries of time and space. Hallelujah!
When saints don’t understand this system, we are at the mercy of the lesser craft, whatever you know them to be. In this state, you might be forced to start believing these guys even have more power than you. But, theirs is not pure/raw power. It is the influence of certain mysteries of the spirit to alter the physical. This is some power, though, because it is beyond the natural. Here, we begin to fear them and cry for help. But behold I show you another mystery. The God-mystery. Again, I say, this is the Craft that uncrafts all crafts.
When you and I introduce this craft, changes can happen.
What is the God-craft?
The Word of God and Prayers.
When God would create the world, He used a craft, His word. And ever since, when He wants to do anything, that’s the order. Even the gospel, which is God’s power (or craft) for saving people, is released through the Word. The word of God in you heart, not just your head, which has become the standard of your daily living and in your mouth being confessed in faith, is a force to reckon with. When we use it, we are operating the God craft.
Living and speaking the Word and being a man of prayers is an effective weapon for disarming the enemies and affecting spiritual climates.
Why do you think these are the two principal areas of attack of Satan? He doesn’t want you studying the Bible or learning from the word but he is okay with you doing and watching programs happen. He doesn’t want you praying but you can ask people to pray for you.
He knows that if you can initiate these crafts of using and living by them, you’re spoiling his works in your domain.
With the God-craft, we stay where we are and we turn hearts of men unto good; we break chains and Satan’s hold over men/territories; we influence interviews, proposals, qualifications and miracles. With the God-craft, we call into existence the things that are not seen by men. With the God-craft, we change things. Every time you go on your knees, you’re doing your craft. And this is the good craft. Glory!
The weapon of the God-craft is the Word of God in our hearts and mouths. God’s word in your heart means God’s word guiding your life and you following what it says. It means living a right life according to the word. And With God’s word in your mouth and faith in your heart, God’s strength is at your disposal. It’s changing that situation in the name of Jesus. It’s turning those hearts in the name of Jesus. It’s breaking curses in the name of Jesus. It’s invoking heaven’s power on your behalf in the name of Jesus.
Prayer is easier and much more desirable when you know you are causing effect in places you don’t even know or see (whether you see it or not). You want to keep the Word within you so that you can bring it up in the face of challenge and refuse the entrance of evil when it comes knocking.
We’ve got the power. We’ve got the name of Jesus for causing effect. We’ve got the God-craft.
