9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 that you may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, pleasing to all, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God, 11 strengthened with all might according to His glorious power, enduring everything with perseverance and patience joyfully, 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled us to be partakers in the inheritance of the saints in light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of His dear Son, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

THE ARRIVAL PRESENCE WORK
JESUS OF NAZARETH
20 But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, no doubt the kingdom of God has come upon you. Luke 11
27 They were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, “What is this? What new teaching is this? With authority He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.” Mark 1
15 And having disarmed authorities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them by the cross. Colossians 2
8 Whoever practices sin is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was revealed, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 2
29 Suddenly they cried out, saying, “What have we to do with You, Jesus, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?” Matthew 8
……The demons also believe and tremble.
When something is much bigger than you, I mean vastly superior to you…its better to get out of the way. RD
They had the right to influence, deceive and take the very ground under your feet, satan and demons have gained the rights….by our sin. It’s clear that the darkside just can’t take what they want or possess whoever freely, they must have a legal right….a foothold (Topos Eph. 4).
The sad fact is that we humans gave satan the right to rule here by our sin …and we give satan-demons rights to influence/use us when we open even more doors-legal rights to him-them. Who is the prince (archon-ruler) of the power (domain) or the air (atmosphere around-above us) See Ephesians 2…. That spirit who is supernaturally operative in ‘lost’ (unsaved) humanity is the very one who brought us down. Satan owns us when we are lost and can work in the lost his purposes at times.
Salvation is the ground of being delivered -set free from satan. We are set free from his ownership, rule, rights and powers when we are born again. Look over this verse well, this is what Jesus does for us when we come to Him and are ‘saved’ (rescued redeemed …new birth Titus3).
Colossians 1: 13-14
“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of His dear Son, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.”
Jesus is Savior and Lord!
This in now God in human flesh, sinless, fully righteous and carrying the full authority of who He is. He didn’t have to gain it, acquire it or do something for it….He owned it (infinitely and eternally) in his very being.
He is God, Savior, Lord of all and comes in full authority over everything that is satan-satanic, demonic and fallen. This is why satan sought so hard to bring him down….so Jesus would lose his status, authority, Saviorhood and be defeated. But again, Jesus blew satan out of the water ….and that authority that pours forth from Jesus always has, does and always will.
When you think of the person, the presence, the works and the very words of Jesus….this is unlike anyone, anything, anywhere. Jesus is the only begotten and has come to reveal the Father. He has come for the primary purpose as expressed in John 3:16-17, God so loved us and came to save us. That ‘saving’ or redemption includes dealing with the sin issue, satans ownership, death and hell itself.
But his coming includes even more…a necessary work, the work (or wielding) at the cross. He is vastly superior than satan….the Infinite person and presence of God against a corrupted fallen finite who has, is and will lose everything.

The Prayers of the Victims have been heard and God is at work Psalm 34
PROJECT PENNSYLVANIA WWW.SIIUCRIMES.COM
A Prayer for My Community (Written by a victim who is now a victor)
Dear Father in Heaven,
This morning my heart is heavy as I think about the atrocities of the past and present in my hometown of Belleville.
I can’t imagine how You must feel, Jesus. I can’t imagine the pain and the aguish You must experience as You see the many, many little girls and boys being sexually victimized in the most horrible ways. I can’t imagine how much it angers You when the people who do these things are those who look good on the outside and claim to be Your children. I can’t imagine how You must feel when people who claim Your name turn their backs on such sin and crime, and refuse to bring such sin to the Light.
O Jesus, sometimes I wonder: How can You let it go on? How long, O Lord?
But then I remember that You are merciful to all. You desperately want those perpetrators to come to the end of themselves and fall at Your feet in true repentance for their sin. I forget sometimes that You are Sovereign. That You are Merciful. That You are in control of it all. And that someday, it will be made right.
O Father, I pray for the victims. The innumerable little girls and boys. The teenagers who are being sold for sex. May you send the right people to guide them to You. May they know Your love. May they realize how much You care about them. May they find healing and rest in You. May they find protection from the enemy of their souls. May they make that hard decision to take responsibility for their response to the abuse. May they forgive and not become bitter. I pray that You would raise them up and that someday their pain would be used to help other little boys and girls.
I pray for the parents and church leaders of the victims. I pray that You would raise up people who would realize the implications of abuse and how it destroys a person. I pray that You would give them wisdom in relating to these broken children and youth. I pray that if they have been abused themselves and have fought help, that they would be willing to work through their own pain. I pray that You would break the chains of generational sexual abuse in my hometown and the surrounding communities. I pray that there could be freedom and healing and that it would come only from You.
And lastly, Jesus, I pray for the perpetrators. I pray that they would come to the end of themselves. I pray that it would happen in this life and not in the next. I pray for their souls. I pray that you would have mercy on them. I pray that their evil deeds would be exposed NOW and not at the judgment day. O Jesus, have mercy, please. They need You just as I need You. O God, please send the right people their way to take them by the hand and lead them to you. I pray for repentance and restoration for them. I pray for a godly sorrow that would lead to repentance.
I know You care, Jesus. And I thank you so much that You are working behind the scenes. Thank you Father.
