Sword In Hand
There are angels in my room, my son would tell me. He was around five years old, when he started sharing with me all that he had seen. I had put him to bed one night and soon there after he had called me up to his room. “Mommy come here”!
He called me into his room and he told me to look out the window. “Do you see them?” I had to always say no because I could not see what he was seeing. That’s when he told me to follow him. So, I followed him outside off the deck and into the backyard…in the dark. He said to me, ” mom watch this”! He had so much excitement in his eyes. I couldn’t help to be excited with him. He told me that he had a sword in hand. He ran off and into the trampoline. He starts laughing. He says mom, “all the bad angels just run up and over the fence”.
I said “Okay than, let me try”! There I went, sword in hand. I ran all over the backyard…in the dark. I asked my son, did anything happen. He said yes! “Mom, they took off and one couldn’t even get over the fence”. We both started laughing hysterically.
That was the beginning of me learning about my authority in Christ. You see we have weapons. No, not real ones, spiritual weapons. Spiritual armor to be exact, which is the helmet of salvation, the sword of the spirit(word of God), breastplate of righteousness, shield of faith, belt of truth, shield of faith and shoes of peace as found in Ephesians 6:10-18.
God says we have authority to trample on serpents and scorpions and all power of the enemy so that nothing by any means shall harm us. Luke 10:19 Yes, we have an enemy, a real one at that. One, that doesn’t want us to be free. He fights and fights and fights and doesn’t give up. However, we have a Father who wages war with us. So that we can have the victory.
That moment is one I will never forget. You see, the Lord was teaching both my son and I about spiritual authority. I did not learn from no other, just the Lord himself. My Heavenly Father said that the Holy Spirit would teach me. He sure did.“But the helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring to your remembrance all things that I have said to you.” John 14:26. Through what my children were seeing, taught us about the spiritual realm.This went on for a couple of years. We have many moments like this, where our Heavenly Father would teach us and show us together.
As all this was happening, the Lord was drawing me closer to Him. He was drawing me to have an intimate relationship with him. My desire to hear his voice became so strong. I wanted to know more about him. At times, it was if he was right in the room with me. Actually, he was! I thought to myself, if my children can see all this, why can’t I.
It started with my first son, soon there after my second son could also see. My boys and I have many great stories to share. Ones, I want to share with you. God is always up to something and it is goooood! Tune in next time.
