High Level Spiritual Warfare

“Here in the U.S. and around the world Christians are paralyzed by fear and the sense that they are powerless in the face of an all powerful adversary. The emphasis is on retreating, hiding and survival. The emphasis on survival, food, investments, etc. is not necessarily a bad thing, but ignoring the most powerful spiritual weapon in the universe can be fatal.”

“God has given His people incredibly powerful spiritual weapons, weapons that have the power to take down any invasion. But the problem is, many Christians have been put under a spell, a stronghold or mind control. They are unaware of the earth shaking power of these spiritual weapons. I was talking to a lady in one of my McGuire Prophecy Meetings and, although she meant well, she kept talking about the power of HARRP. Talking about the power of HARRP is not going to enable you to do what God has called you to do in these last days. The focus should be on the power of God.”

The War Against the Saints


Can I speak from the heart? I am trying to be positive in spite of the fact that wind chill temps here in Minnesota likely resemble the temps on Mars or Saturn. Houses and cars are buried in snow. Our famous domed football stadium made national news as it couldn’t even survive the onslaught of snow and cold so we Minnesotans wish the global warming myth were true.

But if you hadn’t noticed, the saints are under particular attack these days. The trials and testings seem to never end. One writes, Due to trials, God remains a complete mystery to me. Yet thankfully we have the promise of Heaven and Christ waiting for us and the constant heart of God with us as we struggle and grieve.

Another writes, Thanks to your prompting, Jan, I try to maintain the eternal perspective and get my eyes and mind off of this earth. The enemy has come against my family but we are not giving up hope. All is, however, a great struggle.

People around the globe are waiting on God. Let none who wait on You be ashamed (Ps. 25:3). Those waiting may be sick, weary, solitary, discouraged, perplexed, and frightened. God seems silent. Some are disappointed in God. Yes, waiting can seem like an eternity but let none of you be ashamed.

So why are the saints being pounded? Here are some thoughts:

* We are in the last of the last days and the enemy would render us ineffective in sharing the gospel while there is still time. If we focus on our issues only, we lose sight of the lost as well as our assignment in these last days.

* You are doing something incredibly right. You need to be stopped or at the least, rendered less effective. Your testimony must be squelched.

* God is allowing the trial so you will learn to wait on Him. Some are asked to wait for days; some for months; others, for years. In my book, Waiting for a Miracle, I had to wait 20 years to hurdle the “chronic fatigue syndrome.” My ministry was interrupted and my quality of life totally tanked those years. But I did learn to wait. Finally, God intervened and removed the affliction. I do recommend this book to you if you are waiting, struggling, doubting God, and more.

* What is called the “remnant” is particularly hard hit. The remnant have a love for truth and love to pass it on. The enemy wants truth to be withheld because then one is susceptible to being deceived. The remnant is waking people up and thus the heavy guns are pointed at them. If they get distracted by trials, they are distracted from spreading both the gospel and the truth. The remnant is small in number but nonetheless, powerfully effective.

* Satan wants us all to doubt. Most today even doubt the concept of “the blessed hope” of Titus 2:13 — the Lord’s return. Take away our hope and you’re one dejected, down-in-the-mouth Christian. Who would want to seek you out for anything? Your role of providing “salt and light” just turned to pepper and darkness.

* This is a fallen planet and all creation groans. Bad things happen to good people and to God’s people. Believers are not exempt from some of the worst trials and groanings. But in the end, we win. Read the last chapter.

Our love of God is linked to our love for one another — and particularly to those who wait and who are in turmoil. Love of God is inseparably linked with love and care for the brethren. Nothing will lighten your own personal load like reaching out to someone else and helping them ease their load.

Thank you for easing my load. Since October 1 I have had a 12-hour back surgery, a heart attack, and a hacked Web site. I have waited on the Lord! Your e-mails, notes, calls, gifts, and visits have helped so much. To be kept apprised of these issues, visit this link. My thanks to my staff and leadership for carrying an extra load in my absence!

Thank you for your support of this ministry financially in 2010. We air our Understanding the Times radio program on 415 outlets. We are ending the year in the black and we are gearing up for 2011.

In the new year, commit to being an encourager. Try to encourage five people a week with a good word! The Bible says, Encourage the faint-hearted, support the weak, be long suffering toward all (I Thess. 5:14). Heaviness in the heart of man makes him stoop; but encouragement makes him glad (Proverbs 12:25). Make someone glad even today!

In the meantime, never give up! Ask God to put another knot in the end of your rope and to help you hang on! He will.

Awaiting His return,

Jan Markell

Spiritual Warfare Words of Comfort – Psalm 91

Psalm 91 (KJV)

01  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

02  I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

03  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

04  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

05  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

06  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

07  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

08  Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

09  Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10  There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12  They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13  Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14  Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.

16  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
