This Key Weapon in Spiritual Warfare Gets Results

There is a key weapon in spiritual warfare that many believers don’t know. This weapon activates alignment in the spirit. It releases blessings and favor in the Courts of Heaven. You find the key weapon in Genesis 12:3:

“‘I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.'”

Your Position with Israel Always Goes Back to Alignment in the Spirit

There is a secret spiritual warfare weapon that believers in Christ don’t understand. Anytime you’re standing or dealing with Israel, you have an alignment issue–you can either be in or out of alignment, depending on your position with Israel. I’ll explain to you what I mean by that.

1. Should You Stand with Israel?

Where does it say in the Scriptures that standing with Israel is important?

Let’s go to Genesis 12:3. Before looking at the verse, let me briefly explain how we get to Genesis 3. First of all, humanity had a covenant with God, and that first covenant was in the Garden. That covenant was with a man named Adam and a woman named Eve.

They broke the covenant, and when God chose to restore it, He did it with a man named Abram, who became Abraham. And so when God makes a promise or covenant to Abraham (Abram), this is what He says…

  • “‘Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed'” (Gen. 12:1-3).

Understand that this is a covenant statement.

Think of it this way: You’re doing a title search on a piece of property, and you want to get a clear claim deed on the property to make sure that the ownership you have is clear, free from any mechanics liens or free from any legal problems. You go to the courthouse and go back to statehood on a piece of property.

You pay an escrow company, and a landman or a woman will go out and they will research it to make sure that the title is clear. The title given in the beginning is how it is in the end.

I’m bringing this up because I used to do land work. I was a landman working for oil companies. I’d go into the courthouse and look at the property at statehood—when it was deeded over as a state (for Oklahoma, it was 1907), the covenant began.

And then if it changed, if the land was divided for whatever reasons, it always has to link back to the original, to where it was.

The Garden of Eden Covenant Was Broken

So that’s what you must understand, we go back to the Garden. The Garden covenant was broken. We lost all our legal rights. So then, Satan comes in and he becomes the prince of this world (2 Cor. 4:4), and now he has legal rights.

God Chooses to Restore the Broken Covenant through Abraham (Abram)

God chooses this man, Abram, but something is mentioned when He chooses him. This is what’s important.

Think of it this way: So if you’re going through the court documents in the spirit, you find there’s an interruption from Satan, and he took the authority from Adam and Eve. And now the Lord said to Abram in Genesis 12, “Get out of the country from your family and from your father’s house to a land that I will show you.” So God is saying, “I’m going to make a covenant with you, but not in a familiar land. You’re not going where you want to go. You’re going to come to the place where I’m going to make a covenant with you in this land.”

So now he’s having to leave where his family’s from and go to Israel. God says, “And I will make you a great nation there. And I will bless you.”

In other words, He says, “Listen, if you want to be great and you want to be a blessing, then you’re going to have to move to where the blessing is so I can make a covenant with you.”

He says, “I’ll make you a great nation. I will bless you. And I will make your name great. You will be a blessing, and I will bless those who bless you, and I will him those who curses you, and in you,” listen to this, you’ve got to get ahold of this if you’re going to understand Israel and why you bless Israel, “In you, all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

How You Position Yourself with Israel Is All About Alignment

So you will either be blessed or cursed based on your position with Israel. But why in this event in Genesis 12?

See, the Lord says, “I am the Lord; I do not change.” So the Lord is the Alpha and the Omega. When God restored the ability for man to come out from under the curse of what happened in the Garden, the process started with Abraham. And so then He made a covenant with him, which was between Abram/Abraham and his seed, the Jewish people.

Jesus Makes Alignment Possible for All

So now, when Jesus comes. The blood of Jesus removed the middle wall of separation, creating in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace. So now Jesus comes and makes the covenant available to us through the atonement and the redemption of all who call in the name of the Lord, not excluding or replacing the Jews, not excluding or replacing this covenant act.

And so what happens is once a covenant is made—if you can get kind of in that courthouse like what I used to do as a landman—you can understand that if you’re going to redeem what is yours, you have to be able to enter into the courts.

So it’s something you must understand: If you’re cursing Israel, it’s difficult to go into the Courts of Heaven. Cursing Israel positions you as an anti-Semite or as one curing God’s covenant, making it difficult to ask Him for covenant favor.

You can see that if you’re cursing Israel and going into the courts with a curse on you, you can’t ask for a blessing that comes through that which you’re cursing.

2. Did God Change His Mind About Israel?

Did God change His opinion of standing with Israel after Jesus died?

Jesus said he didn’t come to annul the law but fulfill it. If we go into Romans 11, that pretty well answers some of these things. And let’s read what the apostle Paul wrote. The apostle Paul is a Jewish rabbi’s rabbi, and he’s speaking to the Romans who are Gentiles.

And so they asked the same question, did God change his mind?

And Paul says in Romans 11:11-15,

  • “I say then, have they stumbled that you should fall? Certainly not. But through their fall to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches to the world and their failure riches to the Gentiles, how much more their fullness? I speak to you Gentiles in as much as an apostle to the Gentiles. I magnify my ministry. If by any means I might provoke to jealousy who are my flesh and save some of them. For their [being the Jewish people] being cast away was reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance be but life for the dead?”

This is what you are seeing with me. I’ve got Jewish blood, a Jewish mother and I wasn’t raised Jewish. I was an orphan. But I’m a Jewish believer in Jesus, and I’m preaching the gospel. And so this is bringing fullness to you.

The warning in Paul’s words is this: If it is possible for God to change His mind about Israel, then He could change His mind about you. But this goes against what the Bible says. God is not a man and cannot lie. He doesn’t change His mind or go back on His covenants. {eoa}
