The Bible says that God is coming back for a Church without spot, blemish, wrinkle, or any such thing. He's coming back for a victorious Church. Is the Church, the Body of Christ, right now ... today ... victorious? NO, not anywhere close to being victorious!
But God is waking up the Church. He's putting new seeds of revelation into the Body of Christ ... so we can walk in new power and new authority. It's only new because we are just now beginning to recognize it, but it's been here all along.
It's like the Glory of God which has been lying dormant in us ever since we became born again. The anointing has been there ever since we've been born again. All of these have been lying dormant in our lives.
Satan will use the same strategies that he always uses to cause the new seed, the new manifestations of God's Spirit, to be dormant or unproductive in our life. He comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy. He's a lyer, and will do anything to keep us from being victorious.
