(Jeremiah 46:25, Psalm 103:17-19)
THE PRIMACY CONTEST BETWEEN THE POWER OF GOD AND THE KINGDOM OF NO
The eternal word of ultimate truth declares in Jeremiah 46:25 that: ‘The Lord of hosts, the God of Israel saith: Behold, I will punish the multitude of No, and Pharaoh, and Egypt, with their gods, and their kings; even Pharaoh, and all them that trust in him’.
There are a number of empires being governed and which have been governed by kings or emperors who have, through time, controlled the universe. Empires including the Egyptian empire (from where civilization first began), the Babylonian empire, the Medo-Persian empire, the Greek empire, The Roman empire and more recently, the Anglo-American dual-power-empire are no less prominent on the list of these mega-super territorial hegemonistic, worldwide-controllers.
Irrespective of any semantic interpretations, these empires were kingdoms in their own rights.
Understand dearly beloved that when the Bible uses physical things to speak to mankind, the Bible is, in actual fact, pointing to a more spiritual message.
A dissection of our first text therefore gives us an insight into what the kingdom of No represents. The understanding is obvious: the kingdom of No was situated in the larger empire of Babylon. In a sense then, it means the kingdom of No was a subkingdom within the larger community of Babylon.
From a more spiritual parlance, the Kingdom of No is an indefatigable institution in the dark realm. It is controlled by a strongman demon whose spiritual namen is No. The territorial seat of this spirit and its subkingdom is located in the second heaven (Eph 6:12). Note that the second heaven is also known as the seat of the ‘queen of heaven who is the chief-mother of all darkness (Jer.7:18, Jer.44:25).
Their utmost duties are to affixed approval or disapproval to passing requests whilst such requests are transmitting from mankind on earth en route the third heaven (2 Cor.12:21). In the dark arena or realm, the subkingdom of No is the last bus stop of every moving of requests before their arrival at their final destination called the throne of God.
The subkingdom of No is the spiritual territory where Christians who do not realize their rights and authorities are cheated with impunity. How? Ephesians chapter 2:6 declares: ‘And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus’.
When Christ the Eternal Son of God rose from the dead on the third day, amidst a number of unforgettable miraculous groundbreaking events which took place, something mega-super supernatural equally happened.
As He, Christ, rose physically from the dead, mankind gained a translative change of position. Man who was previously made a little lower than the angels (Psalm 8:4-5), suddenly gained an elevation status over and above the angels and made to spiritually sit with God Himself.
Put into context then, this means any time the spiritual man is speaking to God in prayer, such spiritual man is directly conversing with the Almighty who is sitting right there with that man. The implicative effect of this translative change of position is that since the time of Christ’s resurrection, no spiritual man’s prayer goes through the spiritual planetary bodies any more. Rather, any and every conversation with God is done with God in man (Blessed Holy Ghost) and God sitting with man in heavenly places (Christ Jesus).
A discourse about the kingdom of No is therefore a discourse not revalidating the power or influence of the Kingdom of No. Instead, it is a discourse screaming out a clarion call to the Christian to awaken the christian about his/her rights and authorities in God through Christ Jesus. What then? Is the kingdom of No not in existence anymore?
To offer an answer in the affirmative is to declare a most fallacious answer of no spiritual reputation or stance. What then? If this evil subkingdom yet exists, what is it effect(s) on the Christian? The sole answer obviously brings in the primacy question.
Yes, the subkingdom of No exists but it exists for two purposes. First purpose is the purpose of no effect: this is the same as though it doesn’t exist at all. Second purpose is the purpose of deceiving those Christians who fail to realise their rights and authorities in God.
If this is the case, where then is the primacy contest between the power of God and the kingdom of No? No where. Why? The simple answer is because, there is no competition whatsoever between the two. Remember the words of Jehovah in Genesis chapter 3:15. It reads: ‘Behold, I will make enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed.;It shall bruise thy head, and thou shall bruise his heel’. Consider and compare the two: a successful attack made against the head and that made against the heel. Don’t forget in the course of your comparison of the two that the One whose heel was bruised is God, and as such, He cannot die.
Where then lies the contest, comparison or the supremacy competition? Unarguably, the answer is again an absolute no where. The question is: is the thesis of this edition of The Message Now conclusive on this note? It certainly cannot be.
What next then? Understand that it has been said that the subkingdom of No nevertheless yet exists. One reason for its existence is just for deception. Deception! Understand that the subkingdom of No still speaks even against Christians and their petitions. Herein comes the distinction between the believers’ rights in God and the believers’ authority through God. It is possible to understand the mystery of the christians’ translative change of position. That is simply talking about the christians’ rights. It is not impossible to find Christians who do not understand or exercise Christian authority through God and by God. Understand that they were already believers yet the Lord said in Luke chapter 10:19 that: ‘Behold, I give unto you authority …’
Voices from the dead, negative assaults against one’s good, continuous dream attacks, hellish invasions, negative prophetic declarations, evil prayers, dark night knowledge and witchcraft cries and pronouncements of the nights through demonically-influenced animals, evil pointing fingers and curses at special hours of the day and of the night, power of the air, evil words spoken naked through illwill, satanically-anointed thoughts and evil piercing imaginations, arrows and darts, are all clear examples of agents of the kingdom of No.
When a ‘vigilant’ Christian begins to feel delays to breakthroughs, experience stagnation, hatred, unusual envyings, strong oppositions, continuous failure of examinations, sexual misbehaviours by spouse, strong siege laid up around one, then such Christian must understand and know that these wicked agents are already at work holding strong conversation with spiritual forces in high places.
It is at such times that the believer ought to rise up and exercise his/her authority in God through Christ Jesus. Understand dearly beloved that a prayer of authority differs exponentially from normal prayers. The failure to understand all the aforesaid is what empowers the kingdom of No to thrive and to appear to have any contest with the Great I Am. But there is really no contest if the Christian realizes his/her rights and authority in God.
IN THE END, REALISATION ALWAYS LEADS TO SELF-DISCOVERY. SELF-DISCOVERY, OF COURSE IS THE FOUNDATION FOR SELF-ADJUSTMENT. WHEN KNOWLEDGE THRIVES, THE WAY FOR SELF-ADJUSTMENT IS ALWAYS WELL-PAVED OUT. HOWEVER, IT IS A QUESTION OF CHOICE TO ADJUST OR NOT. NO MAN IS A BETTER PROPHET OF YOUR LIFE OTHER THAN YOU. THEREFORE, REALISE WHO YOU ARE: DISCOVER YOUR RIGHTS AND AUTHORITIES IN GOD AND READJUST YOUR POSITION FROM MERE MORTALITY TO FULL SPIRITUALITY WHERE CHRIST REIGNS SUPREME. UNDERSTAND THEN AT THIS POSITION, EVERY AUTHORITY BOWS TO YOU EXCEPT YOU ARE A KING WHO FAILS TO KNOW HIS/HER DOMINION.

Backslidden – living in sin – needing fresh recommitment (say):
Christ Jesus, You are the Anointed One of the Most High. I come to you today as I am. In your mercy, help me out of my situation. Heal my soul, my spirit, my body, my life and my destiny. I acknowledge you as the only true lover of my soul. Please, deliver me on every side and save me through and through. I promise from the depth of my soul to be yours from henceforth, in Jesus name. Help me now O God. Be my Lord, my Saviour and my all in all from this day. Thank you Lord (read Ps.54 in closing and pray more).
