THE BIBLE SAYS, “WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES” (Ephesians 6:12) “HIGH PLACES” is the angelic realm up in the second heavens. Four times this sacred Revelation says “We Wrestle Against these evil powers.” It’s time we take this truth serious. The world has never been in a spiritual war greater than we are in right now. Recently I heard a leading Pentecostal Minister say, “There is no such thing in the Bible as the idea of “Praying Through.” That statement came straight from the devil.

DARK DEMONS LED BY LUCIFER ARE MIGHTILY ENGAGED IN WARRING AGAINST THE ANGELS OF GOD AND THE SAINTS ON THE EARTHLY BATTLEFIELDS. The effeminate and powerless churches of this generation have turned the spiritual conflicts over for Satan to control. Only in a few situations do Christians even understand the battle that is raging. Every time a battle is lost to the devil it is lost because there was no true engagement of mighty Holy Ghost powers to stop him.

1. What do you mean by “Praying Through?”
2. How do I understand these Powers and Principilaties that fight against me?
3. Does God take care of me, even when I am unspiritual and careless about praying and reading my Bible?
4. What does the Bible mean when the Lord says, “Pray without ceasing?”
5. What if I just pray when I’m driving, washing the dishes or watching T.V.?
6. How can I make the devil “scared of me?”
7. If every angel of the devil is a demon, how do they attack me?
8. Has God always had a few Godly Ministers that preach the truth in spite of the devil’s fury?
9. How do I get the angels to fight for me?
10. Can I pray to angels or only to God by Jesus Christ?
11. How do people open the door to the devil and his demons?

The devil is a defeated foe but he fights on and wins because the weapons of the Lord are not engaged. Listen to the great Apostle that whipped the devil over and over. He was battle scarred but victorious. “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” (II Corinthians 10:3-6) The flesh is helpless and that is almost the total plan and scheme of today’s church world. The devil is dancing with glee at such religious foolishness.

Fallen angels are warriors with thousands of years of experience. They know that their day of judgment is coming but they fight on to prolong the war. Every effort in man’s desire to build a church, to see a miracle in somebody’s life or to stop a societal compromise is their invitation to attack. If these efforts are not saturated with prayer and the power of the Holy Ghost there will be defeat. Look at America going down the dark paths of Sodom and Gomorrah. Our church world is utterly against a sovereign move of mighty Holy Ghost power and yet that is the only possible hope. Satan pays no attention to religious efforts where there is no Biblical anointing.

The Ephesian church heard the truth and acted on it for victory. “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” (Ephesians 6:11-16) The last words in Apostle Paul’s instructions were, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints… (Ephesians 6:18) This was their victory and it will not fail today.

When we move to the Book of Revelation we quickly see why Satan is making a last ditch war right now. It will take Michael, one of the greatest warriors of Heaven, leading the multitude of his best fighters to cast the devil out of heaven. We are talking about a war that will change the course of this universe. Our world is on a downward spiral. From politics to the church world it is Satan’s heyday. He is on an earth claim and earth winning triumph. It’s looks externally like he can win, but he cannot. “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” (Revelation 12:7-10) Satan is fighting his final battle before the Rapture of the Bride.

If we could see beyond the clouds, I believe the battle formation is in process and would be visible. We see the signs of this war in the events around Israel. We see America’s key powers turning against the Bible believing church and against Israel and those are the only two things that really count. Start watching for signs of how the world will explain “the missing multitude” when the Bride suddenly disappears.

We are preparing a notebook entitled, “THE INVISIBLE REALM: HOLY ANGELS AND UNHOLY ANGELS.” This is a comprehensive study of this subject like I have always wanted for myself. THIS WILL GIVE YOU A BIBLICAL PICTURE OF THE WARFARE WE FACE IN THE SPIRITUAL WORLD THAT IS DEFEATING MOST OF THE CHURCH WORLD. It will be done in full color and will be about 200 pages. Everything we do is fully guaranteed with our money back promise. We are here to bless, not make money. The notebook will be sent immediately with the first stage, then we’ll follow with the additional pages. (Notebook $29.95, Email without notebook cover $15.00) Call 1 800 338 7884 or 1 704 391 0588. Email us at secretary@pawcreek.org. This is many hours of research and writing so please pray for me.



    Dear Joe Chambers,

    Satan’s angels are the TERRORISTS, and God’s Angels are the POLICE. MICHAEL IS THE SHERIFF. Jesus is the PRESIDENT in Heaven. God’s angels will have to FIGHT THE TERRORIST ANGELS, to get us out of here at Rapture. Probably the reason why the RAPTURE HAS TO BE DONE AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT IN A NANOSECOND, is because he has to get us out of here fast BEFORE THE TERRORIST ANGELS OF SATAN CAN HARM US. If the Rapture was slow, where we just floated up into the air like a balloons, SATAN WOULD SURELY TRY TO BLOCK OUR EXIT. So God has to SNEAK US OUT OF HERE FAST, before the TERRORISTS KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. One we are gone, Satan will realize he LOST HIS HOSTAGES. The angelic commandos storm the place to get us HOSTAGES OUT OF HERE. It is much like an EMBASSY HELD HOSTAGE BY TERRORISTS. The COMMANDOS FOR HEAVEN STORM IN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT TO SNEAK US OUT OF HERE. THE TERRORISTS DON’T REALIZE UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE THAT THEIR HOSTAGES ARE GONE. Once Satan Realizes that the HOSTAGES ARE GONE, he then HOLD ISRAEL HOSTAGE, AND THE GENTILE TRIBULATION SAINTS HOSTAGE. The Jews will be protected at Petra from the TERRORISTS.

  2. Is the rapture a perfect fit with the plain scriptures of God’s Word??

    From many of the writings of the rapture proponents’, we read that “in a twinkling of an eye” Christ will be down to snatch away true Christians to be with Him in heaven for years.

    It will be totally unexpected and those in the rapture will just vanish, shocking the world. Let’s compare this concept with scripture.

    Revelation1: 7

    “Behold He cometh with clouds and every eye shall see Him and they also Which pierced Him and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him, Even so Amen.”

    Is this the rapture or is this scripture talking about another time? A different return of Christ? How many times is Christ returning??

    First, Christ is coming with clouds, second, EVERY eye shall see Jesus Christ of Nazareth and they shall wail because they Know it is over for them. They will not allow Christ to rule over them, they hate His Law.

    If this is the rapture, and it happens “in the twinkling of an eye” what will the world think if Christ, in the twinkling of an eye, turns around and goes back to heaven???

    Matthew 24:30

    “ At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will “SEE” the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory.

    Matthew 24:27

    “For as the lightning cometh out of the east unto the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be.”

    This is describing “The Day of The Lord”, also known as “In That Day” the only RETURN of Jesus Christ. When you combine other scripture, this day is the return of Jesus Christ as King of kings and Lord of lords bringing the Very Government of God the Father, coming with ALL Power and Glory from Heaven.

    Never in the entire history of man has this occurred, never has any man, much less the entire world, ever been exposed to the ASSUME POWER of Great God Almighty. Why do you think the Bible says men will pitch their gold and silver into the streets and then try to hide in the rocks???

    And after this world is shaken by the event of Assume Power and Glory that every eye shall see, Christ is going to turn and go back to heaven for years????? What?

    In all the words spoken and written about a rapture, not once has the term “The First Resurrection” occurred. Or has someone given a logical reason why Jesus Christ would take humans born again as Spirit back to God’s Throne in the third heaven? They certainly do not need protection from man or God, they are immortal and can not die.

    In all scripture, in both the Old and New Testament, concerning the return of Jesus Christ to earth, or the salvation of man, no clear scripture can be found that says clearly that even one man shall be or ever has been in the Third Heaven, God the Father’s Throne. Only Jesus Christ, The Word, which came from God’s Throne.

    Please show a clear scripture saying: “the reward of the saved is heaven,” “when I see you again in heaven”, “when we all meet in heaven.” Yes, your reward ‘comes’ from heaven because that is where the Giver of Eternal life is now.

    Revelation 20:4- 6
    4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    Jesus Christ, in plain statement says: “The Meek shall inherit the EARTH,”
    Revelation 20 states those who have suffered and been murdered for the testimony of Jesus and God’s Word, will reign on thrones given them by God the Father, and will rule with Jesus Christ, King of kings, here on earth, not in heaven.

    Can anyone prove otherwise using only scripture??? A rapture can not be proven using the Bible. Search and you will find God has 3 resurrections in His plan of salvation.

    What is written above is just a tiny fraction of the scripture available proving that at the sounding of the Seventh Trump of the Seventh Seal, Jesus Christ returns with all the power and glory of God and when He is in the clouds of the first heaven all those called and chosen by God the Father from the beginning of creation, are changed to immortal Spirit and rise to meet Christ in the clouds. Once they meet Christ in the clouds, ALL return to the very spot Christ left from to return to His Father, the Mount of Olives.
    These Sons of God the Father will be with Jesus, their elder brother, for ever.
    These are the First Fruits of God. This is the First Resurrection.
    Today is not the only day of Salvation.

  3. hi pastor joeseph
    congratulations on the birth of a brilliant new word in the english language:”guestions” most questions are guesses so we now have a word that covers both.
    keep up the good work pastor joe. will see you in heaven shortly very shortly!!!
    blessings from harold & fifi stewart

  4. This is absolutely one of your best commentaries, Pastor Joseph. Ephesians 6:12 provides the best insight in a single as to why there is such turmoil around us today and that it is merely a symptom of a vastly great conflict that is growing beteeen the forces of God and those of Satan.

    The thing is, most of the church world is totally clueless because they have decided the Bible is no longer relevant. They’ve dropped the all the weapons Paul told us a Christian should have to fight back, so is it any surprise that the modern church is not only ineffective, but is actually helping Satan carry out his plan to take over as many souls as he can before the end.

    So, carry on, keep sounding the alarms because there is a Remnant still capable of recognizing the truth when they hear it.


  5. Note to F.C. Hughes:

    Here is something to explain what appears to be the contradictory returns of Jesus, offered for your consideration:

    His “unexpected” appearance, i.e. that in which Jesus removes his followers from the Earth and meets them in the clouds (1 Thess. 4:16-17), and the one in which he appears universally are two different events, both of which are described in Scripture. Jesus himself said he would come as a thief (Mark 13:34-37) and John also shows us that there would also be a time when the whole world would see his return (Mark 13:24-26).

    Now the former requires no preconditions while the latter must be preceded by the rise and reign of the Antichrist and the 21 judgments in Revelation.

    As an example of another apparent contradiction, recall that Isaiah describes the Messiah both as a “suffering servant” (Isaiah 53) and as a triumphant kingly figure who will usher in a golden age (Isaiah 11). This, of course, is resolved by his First Advent which happened 2000+ years ago and his Second which is yet to come. Two different events – two different times.

    Hope this helps shed some light on your concerns.

  6. Dear Pastor

    Dear Sean Eucharist = The Communion Wafer = Transubstantiation = Aristotle Chemistry & Accidents

    Aristotle was decieved by his mis-guided understanding of chemistry and this misunderstanding was brought forward in the Catholic Church as Transubstantiation or as Aristotle stated an “Accident” as an example Sodium and Chloride = Salt to us yet Aristotle believed that this was not salt but an “accident” Even though it looks like salt and tastes like salt it really is sodium and chloride The Catholic church errs greatly when it states that the communion wafer is made to be the body of Jesus(which then would be cannabilism) because by its accident it only looks like bread. The catholic church father which brought this one in was Thomas Aquinas and he was much taken by Aristotle.(so is Islam)

    We Christians have the Lords Supper(our Emblams)to remember him; not to literally eat his flesh!

    I know that you are well educated yet please bare with the poor of spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven

    God Bless
