2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps  people from knowing God.”

What takes years to build can be destroyed in seconds. When we are skilled and strategic with our prayers we can destroy the kingdom of darkness in seconds.

Intercession is prayer that engages, partners with God, for your needs and the needs of others. Taking hold of God’s will and refusing to let go until His will comes to pass. Intercession is warfare. It is prayer that takes place in the spiritual world where the battles for our own lives, our families, our friends and our nation are won or lost.

1 Timothy 2:1-2 “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”

Isaiah 53:12 “Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.”

Intercession:— (paga) to encounter, meet, light upon, reach, entreat, make intercession.
Two Calls To Intercession:  1. Sudden Encounter  2. Determined Encounter

Ezekiel 22:30 “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.”
Making the difference between what is and what should be.  Being a bridge.

The Kingdom of God is eternal but DOMINION is generational.
Acts 13:36  “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep,…”
Psalm 115:16 “The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; But the earth He has given  to the children of men.”

Ephesians 6:10-13 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities,…”    “…against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

wrestle:— (pal’-ay) a contest between two in which each endeavours to throw the other, and which is decided when the victor is able to hold his opponent down with his hand upon his neck.
Romans 16:20  “And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.” 

Mankind is to protect (shamar) the eternal purpose of God and to once and for all put the KIBOSH (kabash) on His enemies!!!   In our contending with the devil we have a command to Stand and a command to Wrestle.

Genesis 1:28  NKJV “Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”      TLV  “Be fruitful and multiply,  fill the land, and conquer it.”
Subdue (kabash) :— conquer, subjugate, bring into bondage, force, keep under, subdue, bring into subjection.  Kibosh :— to eliminate, terminate  “Put the Kibosh on that!”

Genesis 2:15   “Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.”
“Keep It”  Shamar:— to keep, guard, keep watch and ward, protect, save life and protect … What are they guarding  against? God’s Enemies.

Hebrews 7:25 “Therefore He (JESUS) is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”

1 John 3:8 “The reason the Son of God was made manifest (visible) was to undo (destroy, loosen, and dissolve) the works the devil [has done].”

Watchman Nee (Sit Walk Stand) “For our part, we need not struggle to occupy ground that is already ours. In Christ we are conquerors, nay, “more than conquerors” (Rom. 8: 37). In Him, therefore, we stand. Thus, today we do not fight for victory; we fight from victory.— “… We do not fight in order to win, but because in Christ we have already won. Overcomers are those who rest in the victory already given to them by their God. When you fight to get the victory, then you have lost the battle at the very outset.” 

Romans 8:26-27 “… the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses…. but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to  the will of God.”

3 Aspects Of Supernatural Partnership
1. Intercession:– “Huperentugchano” to make intercession for one. huper  :– on behalf     en :– in, with    Tugchano :– to hit the    mark, to meet

2. Groanings :– “Stenagmos” to aspirate, to vent deep feelings.
Holy Spirit comes in and blows his top.  Words can’t express the passion. His zeal begins to rub off on you.

3. Searching:– “Ereunao” to search a matter out. 1 Corinthians 2:9-10  “…revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”
Eureka:– i found it!  Spirit brings into manifestation what is lacking.

Follow this progression with me:
Paul asks for prayer so that he a door of utterance would be opened for the revelation he was given.
Then he asked that utterance would be given to him and that he would speak with boldness.
Then he says a wide door has been opened to him.
Then he says his preaching was accompanied by the power of God.

Ephesians 6:19   (KJV) “And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,…”    

1 Corinthians 16:9  (AMP) “For a wide door of opportunity for effectual [service] has opened to me [there, a great and promising one], and [there are] many adversaries.” 

1 Corinthians 2:4-5  “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”
