Battle Tactics from Yeshua

Mark 1:23-28

In their synagogue just then was a man with an unclean spirit in him, who shouted, “What do You want with us, Yeshua from Natzeret (Jesus from Nazareth)? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are – the Holy One of God!” But Yeshua rebuked the unclean spirit, “Be quiet and come out of him!” Throwing the man into a convulsion, it gave a loud shriek and came out of him. They were all so astounded that they began asking each other, “What is this? A new teaching, one with authority behind it! He gives orders even to the unclean spirits, and they obey Him!” And the news about Him spread quickly through the whole region of the Galil (Galilee).

See here we can see a tactic of God and the enemy. What God wants for a time to remain quiet or secret the enemy’s tactic is to reveal and shout at the top of his lungs -even if it’s God’s very name! Likewise what God would have revealed, the enemy then seeks to submerge and distort! In this particular time. .. it was the Fathers will that Yeshua come in quietly and keep the focus on the work with His people before the “powers that be” took notice. So the enemy sought to reveal in advanced. Also notice, the enemy obeyed Yeshua, but fought all the way. Our enemy will not relent. .. but must at last yield… but he will go attempting to tear apart the room as he goes. This is a war. .. and the enemy is determined not to leave any “spoils” in his wake. Yeshua took this seriously. We must learn from Him. .. and all we need to do so is right in these four gosples… within each and every line of Yeshua’s works and words.

So how do we apply this to today, now, in our times. It’s quite simple. The enemy now seeks only to submerge. .. depress… distort that Yeshua is here, alive and King. So we are to shout like John the Baptist, given just a few short sentences prior to the Scripture above; shout. .. “turn to God from your sins! Be made clean by Yeshua’s blood!”  Our “tactic” is to make way to allow God to do His work. So. ..our shouting, speaking, proclaiming in effect “makes a way” for Adonai to enter in. How different that perspective can make us when we see that sharing Yeshua in all things with everyone we know makes such an impact on the front lines of Yeshua/God’s invasion across enemy lines!

Also note: an unclean spirit often gets defined as ‘demon possessed’. Caution. .. any spirit which is considered unclean is simply a spirit that has not been cleaned, washed, renewed by God. When I become argumentative and defensive. .. My spirit is unclean. When sarcasm and cynicism invade my thoughts first and then my speech. .. My spirit is in need of cleansing. We often make the works of the enemy far more powerful than they are and paint a picture of the worst debasement when in fact it’s far less complex and a simple need to turn from those things unclean to God is the ointment needed to heal the spirit within. David was never demon possessed yet he asked the Lord to renew a right or clean spirit within him. (Psalm 51:10)

So here is our basic training ground: our minds, our spirits within. Discerning, with the help of the Holy Spirit, where our unclean spirits need to be told to turn to God and claim Yeshua’s forgiveness and then we take action to do the opposite of what we were doing in the power of that unclean spirit. We take note of it and ask Adonai (the Lord) to renew a correct spirit within us. In essence we turn from our sins to God. Simple…yes. Easy…no. We have an enemy who will stop at nothing to dull our minds and spirits to the need for inner correction! If he can stop us there. .. then we can not shout to others in pointing to Yeshua. Know thy God and He will teach you how to deal with the enemy! For that enemy is first and last God’s enemy… this is why he is ours. Satan is no enemy but a friend to those who have no “turn signals” towards heaven!
