We are all aware of the spiritual battle raging over the nations of the world - look at Afghanistan! The news and pictures sicken us, especially as we consider and pray for the vibrant underground church that is growing rapidly there.
The ancient question remains, Who is going to rule? God or the devil? Our answer is God!
Recently I spoke at the South Central, USA Regional Aglow event in Austin, TX. At the event, the Regional Director, Carol Torrance, showed a teaching from Tim Sheets, brother of Dutch Sheets, entitled Overthrowing Thrones of Iniquity.
It is a powerful teaching that identifies speaking in tongues as “the governing language of Heaven.” As Tim said, “It is about governing intercession. It’s about government. Yes, it is about many other things that are beneficial but it’s about government. It is governing intercession of the Holy Spirit.” (Click here to watch the video - Closed Captions available in all languages) Overthrowing Thrones of Iniquity | Tim Sheets - YouTube
Upon returning home, I showed it to our staff at our weekly staff devotion. Since then, we have gathered each day to pray together in our prayer language for 10 minutes. We have found it to be powerful and several have commented that we must not keep this for ourselves only, we must invite the world to join us.
Therefore, I am asking you to set aside a dedicated time each day to pray in tongues. As you do, I believe you will begin to overthrow the demonic forces who sit enthroned over regions and nations, cities and towns. I believe that together, with the Holy Spirit and the angel armies, we will see strongholds broken and the Body of Christ rising up to rule and reign as foretold in Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
The Holy Spirit has always had our attention in Aglow. As you gather as teams, or pray alone, expect to see strongholds topple as God’s governing body on earth takes their rightful place in authority. You were born for this!
Praying together in the Holy Spirit,
