Project Because we Care (B.W.C.)

 

                                               1  JANUARY 2021

From the desk of the Apostle as we embark upon the year of 2021 many in the world have their trust in the COVID19 vaccines, the new leadership changes in our government, and the big promises from them.  

But as Christians we must put all our trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and Him alone.  In this upcoming year we must be in tune with what He is saying to His Church through His prophets (Revelation) that will lead to our (Transition) into the (Possession) of what God has for us.

Even though we will have struggles & opposition in 2021 we must stay Focused and remember we can’t lose with God on our side.  May we put our trust in nothing less than Jesus Christ blood and His Righteousness.

 

I RELEASE TO YOU THE THEME AND SCRIPTURE FOR KBCMI FOR 2021:

 

2021 THE YEAR OF REVELATION, TRANSITION & POSSESSION!

 

DEUTERONOMY 11:10-12 KJV… 10 For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:

11 But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:

12 A land which the Lord thy God careth for: the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.

 

May the Lord continue to Bless & keep you in Jesus Name.

 

Apostle L.R. Gooden Jr.

LEVIATHAN THE SPIRIT OF PRIDE!

In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. Isaiah 27:1

In the book of Job, the whole context is an ongoing debate between Job and his friends. Finally, God announces that He has had enough and demands an answer.

Where was thou when I laid the foundations of this earth?  Declare if thou hast understanding. Job 38:4 

God goes on to give Job an entire discourse about leviathan. "And now, Job, who are you, who dares not arouse the unmastered leviathan, yet who dare resist Me, the beast's Creator; to My face?  Everything under the heavens is Mine; therefore who can have a claim against Me?";  Leviathan is the climatic revelation of the book of Job.   The fact that the Bible denotes an entire chapter, Job 41, describing leviathan to him indicates his importance.

God uses the sea-monster, Leviathan, to reveal to Job that Job's problem is pride.   There is a strong evil spirit named Leviathan.   Leviathan is an evil demonic spirit of pride.

God reveals the monster.   Some call him a crocodile or something else, but the Word calls him a dragon, sea-monster, or sea-serpent.

In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.  Isaiah 27:1

Strong's Concordance gives this definition:

Leviathan- livyathan, (3882), a wreathed animal or serpent, a large sea-monster.   The constellation of the dragon, Draco; also as a symbol of Babylon: mourning.

Dragon / Dragons- tanniyn (8577), a marine or land monster, sea-serpent or jackel; sea-monster, serpent, whale.

The context suggest some form of aquatic monster which dwells in the sea.   In the scripture, the sea represents nations of people.   There is a dragon in the sea (people or nations), and God is going to slay that dragon.

The nations of this world are consumed by this dragon or sea-monster.   This sea-monster is pride. This evil, demonic spirit of pride manipulates and controls the masses of this world.

He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride. (Of all the beasts, he is the proudest, he reigns supreme over all the pride of the earth.)  Job 41:34

Another way of stating this is, 'he looks down on all who are haughty; he is a king or ruler over all those who are proud'.   Pride and leviathan are practically synonymous. It is hard to separate them. 

The spirit of Leviathan's most crucial work is in the area of keeping people from receiving the things of God and of the Holy Spirit and from moving into the very presence of Almighty God.   Leviathan's primary purpose and goal is to stop all true moves of the Holy Spirit, and all spiritual growth in the lives of the Believers.   He wants to stop the flow of the Anointing.

The modern church today is largely asleep because of the spirit Leviathan's work.   He loves to eclipse things.   Mythology associates him with the eclipse of the sun.   He wants to eclipse the S-O-N, Christ Jesus, in your life.   Leviathan wants to eclipse the True and Holy things of Almighty God in your life.

 Leviathan resides in the Holy Place, and is a counterfeiter.

We are three part beings; we are a spirit, we have a soul, and we live in a body.   Our soul is a type of the Holy Place where Leviathan works. He is at work in our soul; in our mind, emotions, and will. 

The spirit of Leviathan attempts to keep us from entering the Holy of Holies, into the very presence of God.   No man could go there except Moses and the High Priest; and then only once a year.   This is the third veil, and Leviathan does not want us there.   This third veil was rent when Jesus died on the cross.   This was the veil between the Spirit-filled realm and the very presence of God.   Here Leviathan stands to block entrance. 

The spirit of Leviathan attempts to snuff out the lamps (knowledge and understanding); cut off the bread (the manna); and he tries to keep us from offering up daily incense (prayer in the Spirit).   He does not want us to move in the Holy Spirit; to have words of knowledge, speak in tongues, or any other spiritual gift.   He will choke us off with spiritual deafness and blindness, causing us to be tongue-tied.   Leviathan will imitate the Holy Spirit and cause false gifts, healings, and even miracles to manifest in the believers. 

Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron (His nostrils belch forth smoke, thick as the fumes of a seething pot.).     Job 41:20 

The smoke from Leviathan nostrils is false prayer and false worship at the altar of incense, and he is commissioned to counterfeit the genuine pentecostal experience.   Because the person is so bound up with pride, he cannot really praise God.   He is too important, too bound up in himself, to give any real praise and worship to God. 

His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal (His arrogance and haughtiness stems from the tight sealed scales covering his body.).   Job 42:15

Leviathan's scales are so close one to another that no air can come between them.   The scales are joined one to another and cannot be pulled apart.   In scripture; air, breath, and wind are synonymous with the Holy Spirit. 

The reason many people get so shut in is because of the effects of Leviathan's tight coils around them, inhibiting the moving of the Holy Spirit.   They cannot hear or discern the Holy Spirit, and they say they never get a word from the Lord or move in the gifts.   The reason is that no air of the Holy Spirit is able to get in because this demon has such a strangle hold.

The spirit Leviathan wants us to have the counterfeit; and if we get that and are satisfied with it, he has us.   Leviathan in the pastor, teacher, evangelist, etc. charms or hypnotizes the people, and they are deceived and seduced into believing they are operating through the Holy Spirit.   Today, many are experiencing counterfeit gifts.   Many are requiring deliverance from false, error filled ministries.   Increasingly, deliverance ministries are having to cast out spirits of false tongues.

One of Leviathan's chief jobs is to mock, come against, and block deliverance and/or deliverance ministries.   Most people who fight the deliverance ministry have powerful leviathan demons; and are, therefore, raely delivered.   Many of the ministers who refuse to open up to the ministry of deliverance are being controlled by a leviathan spirit.

The reason pastors, teachers, evangelist, etc. accept leviathan's lies is because they refuse to believe that they may have demons and are in need of deliverance.  It's not a 'shame' to have demons, the shame is not acknowledging, repenting, and getting rid of it through deliverance.   Instead, they teach the people 'Christians cannot have demons'. 

The 'true' deliverance of God is casting out demons according to Mark 16:17- 18: And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils;  .  .  .  they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.    Mark 16:17-18

The Bible says that if we do not love the truth, God will cause us to believe a lie.   The only way to get rid of the demonic influence of Leviathan is to 'cast him out in the Name of Jesus'. 

I pray that this teaching will enlighten us to not be ignorant of satans devices but to grasp the truth and function in the truth. Amen.
