THE CAUSE FOR THE DEMONIC ATTACKS COMING AGAINST YOU

“What triggers demonic attacks against you, your dream, your vision, your calling, your business, your family, your church, or your ministry? What makes the devil so upset that he rises up to resist you and your efforts? If God chose you, why are you experiencing so many hassles and difficulties along the way to your goal of fulfilling all He has called you to do?” – Rick Renner

Are you undergoing attacks from Satan at this moment? Do you feel as though every time you make progress in the Kingdom of God here comes an attack trying to push you back? Do you feel sometimes as though you are up against a brick wall in trying to accomplish what God Almighty has called you to do in this life?

We can say assuredly that the reason you are being attacked is because the call of God is on your life and the devil is scared silly to see you walk in that calling 100%. The attacks are meant to rob you of your effectiveness and to hinder your progress. He knows that if you walked in your calling 100%, you would do some mighty great damage to his kingdom. It’s time to get mad at the devil and go for the 100%!

Before saying another word, let’s look into the Holy Scriptures and examine Paul’s life for instruction.

2 Timothy 1:11 says – “Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.”

Acts 9:15 says – “But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto Me, to bear My name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel.”

Romans 1:1 says – “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God.”

Ephesians 3:7-8 says – “Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of His power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.”

1 Timothy 2:7 says – “Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not,) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.”

2 Timothy 1:1 says – “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God…”

The above Scriptures indicate to us that Paul was appointed by God… set apart by the authority of Jesus to do a task…God’s chosen instrument…a slave of Jesus…a servant acting under the direction of the Great Master…having both the grace and power of God mightily at work in his life…and working in accordance with the Divine will and purpose.

Because of this, he came under the severe attack of Satan.

Acts 9:16 and 2 Timothy 1:12 confirm this fact – “For I will show him how great things he must suffer for My name’s sake” and “For the which cause I also suffer these things…”

Paul would suffer as a result of outside forces or outside circumstances. He would undergo physical suffering due to persecution…mental suffering due to outside pressures…and financial suffering due to monetary hardships. These outside attacks would be stirred up by Satan and caused by the calling that rested on his life.

Let’s look a little closer into what really stirs up demonic activity in one’s life. Why exactly did Paul become the target for Satan’s vicious attacks?

1) He Was Appointed By God.

2 Timothy 1:11 says – “Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles…”

1 Timothy 2:7 says – “Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not,) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.”

Paul was appointed by God to preach the Gospel. He was set apart, ordained, or put into the ministry by Christ Himself. He was especially commissioned by God to preach the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth – fervently, affectionately, and perseveringly – to the Gentiles. He was sent by God and not by man.

2) He Was God’s Chosen Instrument.

Acts 9:15 says – “But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto Me, to bear My name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel.”

Paul was God’s instrument of choice… Excellent or well-adapted agent used to accomplish His purpose… Or vessel in which the Gospel message was lodged.

3) He Was A Slave Of Jesus.

Romans 1:1 says – “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God.”

Paul was Jesus’ willing slave who was at the control of His Master. He was subject to His will and wholly at His disposal. He was the entire property of His Master – knowing that his life was not his own, and all in his life belonged to his Heavenly Owner. He was wholly devoted in the spirit of sacrificial obedience to the constant and complete performance of the Divine Will.

4) He Had The Grace & Power Of God Mightily At Work In His Life.

Ephesians 3:7 says – “Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of His power.”

Paul was not called into the ministry based on his own seeking or merit. It was not according to his education or acquired learning. He did not make himself a minister. It was God Who supplied and furnished him for His work. He was “made a minister” according to the in working of God’s power – in consequence of the ministerial gift of the grace of God.

5) He Worked In Accordance With The Divine Will & Purpose

2 Timothy 1:1 says – “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God…”

Paul’s calling did not come by the will of man or by his own will. He didn’t thrust himself into the office of an Apostle or take this honor unto himself. It did not come by any merit of his own. It came as a result of the counsel and design of God’s infinite wisdom and goodness.

What stirred up the demonic activity against Paul and his ministry?

The fact that he was set apart by God for this work… Was God’s well-adapted instrument for the job… Was Jesus’ willing slave – devoted to doing His will in all things…was furnished for the job by God’s mighty power and grace…and in the perfect will of God in doing so.

All of these factors made him a threat to the Kingdom of Darkness.

There are many today who are no threat to Satan and his kingdom. The reason being is because they called themselves into the ministry. They or some other man appointed them to the position they are in today. They are not sold-out to God, nor are they in the least bit concerned about being in the will of God for their lives. Resultantly, Satan doesn’t bother with them.

However, you may be reading this – while relating to Paul the Apostle. Indeed, you are a threat to Satan and his kingdom. You are constantly under demonic attack. You know that God called you into the ministry to do a work for Him. God has chosen you to do a specific work for Him. You know that! You are in the will of God – fulfilling His plan and purpose for your life. And you are fully surrendered to do His will and His will alone. You realize that your life is not your own; it belongs to the One Who purchased it with His Blood – none other than the Lord Jesus!

Because of this – you find yourself on HELL’S BLACK LIST!

Then receive this word of encouragement that you read earlier in this message – We can say with all assuredly that the reason you are being attacked is because the call of God is on your life and the devil is scared silly to see you walk in that calling 100%. The attacks are meant to rob you of your effectiveness and to hinder your progress. He knows that if you walked in your calling 100%, you would do some mighty great damage to his kingdom. It’s time to get mad at the devil and go for the 100%!

C’mon, get mad at the devil! Be determined like never before to go for the 100%! Don’t let anything or anyone stop you!
