CONTENDING FOR OUR DESTINY

by Bishop Dan Balais | March 15, 2012

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” Matthew 16:18-19

The prophets that came to us in these recent years have proclaimed that the nation of the Philippines is in a critical crossroads, a forked road that leads to a contrasting end: one road leads to destruction; while the other road leads to our destiny! The prophets were all one in emphatically telling the Philippine Church: “Contend for your destiny!!!

Prophets Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, Vincent Selkvakumar, Neville Johnson and Robert Misst released similar and complementary prophetic words to the nation clearly spelling out the role of the church in enforcing the destiny of the nation. In the past three years of intense prophetic prayer gatherings, these anointed servants of the Lord showed to us two opposite scenarios: 1) A destroyed, ruined people ; 2) A righteous, prosperous and missionary sending Philippines! The prophetic directive is to contend; to fight for our destiny!!! The mission order is to bring the whole nation back to God (Matt 28:18-20)! The enemy that we are fighting against is Satan and all his demonic hosts (Ephesians 6:12)! The weapons that we have are not natural weapons but mighty weapons of God (II Corinthians 10:4-5; Ephesians 6: 13-17). The reward of victory is to see the nation set free from the evils and curses of idolatry, immorality, corruption, violence poverty and other forms of wickedness and lawlessness. The “Canaan Land blessing” is to see our land being spared from terrible calamities such as earthquakes and tsunamis, typhoons and floods, drought and other forms of judgments that characterize these Last Days. This is the time for the church to rise up and intercede on behalf of the land so that the judgment may be averted as we appeal to the mercy and kindness of God (II Chronicles 7: 14; Ezekiel 22:30).

The Lord is giving us time and reprieve to deal with the sins of the nation through intensified prayers and intercessions humbling ourselves with fasting and supplications. The Lord is giving us a window of time to proclaim the gospel of Christ with such importunity and resolve to bring our people into a saving knowledge and experience of God and His forgiving grace! It is only when people are set free from the power of Sin that they become instruments of righteousness to shine in these darkened world (Matt 5:14-16)! It is when they are rescued from the kingdom of darkness and translated into the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ that they become deliverers and saviours of their families, communities and nation (Col 1:13; Obadiah 1:21).

Finally, as we pursue this battle contending for all the promises of God that will lead us to take hold and enter our destiny, we must have the overcoming faith so that we will persevere with all our might in the face of all the resistance, obstacle and opposition that will come from the evil one (I John 5:4)! By faith, we shall overcome!

Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
