Psalm 112:1-3 MSG “Hallelujah! Blessed man, blessed woman, who fear GOD, Who cherish and relish his commandments, Their children robust on the earth, And the homes of the upright—how blessed! Their houses brim with wealth And a generosity that never runs dry.”
Are you here to edify or to “spy?” The enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy. We must check our motives and what “we” come to do.
Some aspects of military intelligence operations involve “collection and analysis of imagery, investigations, and engaging in electronic warfare…” Satan has intelligence agents in his kingdom too; some are aware of whose army they’re in and some have no idea they are working for his kingdom. But in either case, his agents operate in the same manner as military intelligence. They are “spying” and monitoring and analyzing you and your walk so closely that their own walk is maimed and they don’t even know it. They aid the enemy in killing, stealing, and destroying the body because they operate out of intelligence and feigned wisdom and not the Spirit of God (i.e., love, gentleness, self-control, etc.). No one knows you and your heart and your journey with Yeshua like the all knowing sovereign King, Jehovah. Any other assessment of you is simply “collection and analysis” based on opinion and on what can be seen with the naked eye (flesh). If the “collection and analysis” comes from the Spirit of God, the Spirit of God will test it and prove it.
Believers, we have to regularly check our hearts, our motives, our words, our pride, and our opinions. We have to make a spiritual effort to make sure we’re not aligned with Satan’s mission which is to kill, steal, and destroy the body. We have to keep our mouths off God’s people. If our words and actions are not “truth” based on the Word of God and His Spirit then it’s just “our truth,” which is well…a natural lie. If we’re just keeping it “real” and it came from a suspicious or jealous or critical heart, then it’s just “real” ugly. If our assessment of another is based on analysis and philosophies and worldly knowledge and our own limited experiences, then all of that is foolishness to God. If our assessment is not building up the body, then it’s tearing the body down. Is THAT what you’re here for? We have to let Holy Spirit “fix” us and our hearts so the body can be healed and edified.

The side of the truck read, “From Underground to [Kingdom Renowned]” (it said world famous)
So many saints profess “we don’t want to be famous” (and some with false humility) and if that’s not your mandate that’s understandable. But why not? How many totally sold out for Jesus uncompromising famous people are there infiltrating the world’s systems with the gospel? For every worldly famous social media page, how many famous sold out for Christ pages with over 100,000,000 followers and likes? If there are over 100 million unchurched (unsaved) people in America (2010 Census), why not have more famous spiritual uncompromising influences who can impact media, government, news, business, entertainment, art, church, and families all over the world and country? How much more could Jesus be famous if more powerful and influential and uncompromising believers were famous? God will cause your name to be great on His own without your help…But only if that’s your mandate. Are you destined for greatness in the kingdom and settling for mediocre mission? Jené Elaine Walker
1 Kings 18:21 “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”
What is a fence straddler? I know the meaning very well. It describes me and my lifestyle about three years ago. I wanted to follow God and go into ministry, but I also wanted to be in an “all out” relationship with a man who wasn’t my husband. God wouldn’t allow me to be elevated spiritually and in some ways naturally until I decided between, “God or Baal?” I had one leg on the world’s side of the fence and one leg in the kingdom – fence straddler. God kept nudging me with forceful nudges to come out of sin. I mean the kind of nudges that I couldn’t just ignore. The nudges went beyond “heart tugs.”
Will you stay in sin until God has to give you a serious nudge or will you come out now? We stifle our own elevation with our rebellion. Will you go all in with God? He says if not, just go all in with Satan. He said for us to love Him with all our hearts, all our soul, and all our strength, withholding nothing… Jené Elaine Walker
Spiritual Warfare Bootcamp 5
Luke 10:19 “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”
I couldn’t find a passage of scripture that states ‘if your great grandmother commits adultery, then your grandmother will commit adultery, and your mother, and you, and your children, and your children’s children.’ But if we’re honest in our spiritual assessment of our family’s lineage, just like in the lineage of our some of our biblical brothers and sisters, we can draw a spiritual conclusion. We often struggle with and repeat the same sins generationally. Reflect on the sins of your family, whether it is sexual immorality, acting in anger and having bad tempers, abandonment, lying, bad stewardship, manipulation, deceiving or perfection. There are sins that are also crimes according to the law such as pedophilia, rape, molestation, theft, etc. Unfortunately, these too are sins that we may see repeated in a family line from generation to generation. We have been letting ourselves off easy stating, “Oh I’m dealing with a spiritual curse” or in the natural realm “It’s because of a mental issue” when in actuality, haven’t some of us just been giving in to the desires of our flesh and lust and committing the same sins our family has committed for generations?
What Holy Spirit showed me is this – these sins aren’t necessarily generational “curses” but in some cases, they are generational “sins” that we commit at will. Yes, our sins can affect our bloodline and we can pass things down through our blood in the birth canal such as addictions and diseases. We tend to identify those things passed down through the birth canal as “curses.” We can even have spirits that we are plagued with that open up the door to attack and enter the child in our womb and spirits can be passed down such as sexual immorality – lust, homosexuality, etc. or even rejection. However, in the case of generational sin we are spiritually repeating the same sin that we saw our parents and their parents and their parents’ parents commit.
One biblical example of generational sin – in a simplistic explanation – is in Abraham’s lineage. In Genesis Chapter 20:2, Abraham lied to the king and said that his wife Sarah was his sister. Now even though Abraham later cleaned up his lie by stating that Sarah truly was his “half” sister, he gave that information to the king with the intent to deceive the king in order to save himself. He had a fear of authority. In Genesis 26:6, Isaac, Abraham’s son, lied to the king and said his wife Rebekah was his sister to save himself. We see the generational sin of lying and deception out of fear of authority. Then, Isaac’s son Jacob deceives Isaac by pretending to be the oldest son Esau in order to get his father’s blessing. Jacob’s motive for lying may have been different from Abraham and Isaac but do you see the pattern of the same sin? Are lying and deception issues in your family? Is there a fear of authority that causes you to cower down, stutter, stammer, or even lie and deceive out of fear? No matter how subtle the generational sin may be, spiritually reflect so that we can strategize for closing those portals for the fear of authority.
Now this is important. What we know about sin is that sins of commission and sins of omission open the doors or spiritual portals for evil spirits to enter into us. So when we continue to commit generational sins, we open the door for a strongman or ruling spirits and other demons to enter in. Luke says in Luke 22:3-4, “Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus.” How was Satan able to enter Judas? Because Judas had a sinful heart of greed, the portal was open.
In Acts 5:3, Luke narrated these events, “Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep part of the price of the land?” This couple withheld money from the church and lied about it. Because of the sin of covetousness in their hearts, the strongman of covetousness and other demons such as lying, and greed entered into them and ultimately caused their deaths.
So if we take the sin of “lust” lightly, please understand that the excessive thought of sex with someone or desiring someone’s body or their sex in the “privacy of our own minds” opens the door for the strongman to come into us. According to the research of Frank and Ida Mae Hammond, after the strongman establishes himself as ruler in us, he is integral in the role of other demons coming in.
So now, the sin of lust in the heart and mind have given birth to full-fledge adultery. The strong man of “sexual immorality” has taken residence in the “house” of your husband or wife from a sin that the world “measures” as minor. Can the sins that we commit originate from the prompting of Satan? Of course they can; ask Eve! However, we must let the power of Holy Spirit operate in our lives to help us to take the escape that God has already provided for us when temptation comes. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 10:13 “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
God has made a way of escape for us before we partner with Satan to sin. We just have to choose to take the escape. Jesus died so that we would have the power to resist the devil through the Holy Spirit. We can’t dare say that the devil has too much power. Luke narrates what Jesus says in Luke 10:19 “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” We have power to overcome generational sin.
Frank and Ida Mae Hammond’s research also suggests that when we are vulnerable, demons are able to enter in. If we’re fearful of something happening to us such as divorce or our spouse leaving us, that makes us vulnerable and we can open ourselves up to the strongman of worry, nervousness, and even grief. We have to be vigilant and spiritually discerning about what is happening to us and concerning us in the spiritual ream. Then, we can uproot these demons – or even better, cut them off before they take root.
One of the most important spiritual tactics for closing up spiritual portals is to first, repent. You have to want to come out of that sin just as much as or even more than you wanted to commit the sin. Secondly, you have to actually come out of sin. Third, ask for forgiveness and turn in the opposite direction of your sin. Fourth, when you come out, the strongman and demons in you must come out through deliverance. Fifth, when you are delivered from these demons, immediately allow Holy Spirit to rule and take complete control of your life. If you don’t, you are at a serious risk of allowing the strongman to come back with seven other demons worse than him. Then you will be worse off than you were before your deliverance. (See Matthew 12:44-45.) Of course, you will continue with your regular strategic warfare plan (See your first email installment) of worshipping and speaking in tongues, praying and speaking confessions, and studying and meditating on the Word of God.
Most of the scriptures about curses have to do with God administering punishment for the sin of our forefathers. However, in Ezekiel, God said that He wasn’t going to do that anymore. Each person would die for his own sin. Then, Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law.
Exodus 20:5 “You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,”
Numbers 14:18 ‘The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.’
Romans 5:19 ‘For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.’
Ezekiel 18:1-4 “The word of the Lord came to me: “What do you people mean by quoting this proverb about the land of Israel: ‘The parents eat sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge’? As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel. For everyone belongs to me, the parent as well as the child—both alike belong to me. The one who sins is the one who will die.”
Galatians 3:13 “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”

Although I have the best parents in the world, they didn’t explicitly teach me about the significance of purchasing a home. They “told” me to buy one and that it was a goal but they didn’t give me instructions. I was living in pretty expensive apartments on a starting teacher’s salary. I got joy out of moving from fancy apartment to fancy apartment because I was uninformed and “appearance” was important to me.
God sent my girlfriend Betsy to plant a seed and water it. She said, “Why don’t you buy a condo? I’m going to buy one and we can be neighbors.” I didn’t think I could afford a condo or a down payment. She said, “What are you paying in rent?” When I told her, she gasped. She walked me through the homeowner process. God sent more angels to help me through an “easy process” of purchasing my first home. This was a turning point in my life. My mortgage for my condo was $250.00 less than my rent for my apartment with the same exact utility bills and fees.
The enemy told me all kinds of lies to keep me as a borrower and not a lender. “You should wait until you’re married again to buy.” “You don’t even know if you will live here forever and you can’t get out of that condo.” The devil is a liar. God got me in the condo. Eight years later when I sold my condo, the angel who is my realtor sold it for close to $30k more than I paid for it… The math? Increase. Don’t believe the lies of the enemy. It isn’t too late for us (no matter how old we are). With God, all things are possible.
And parents, we can’t assume that our children understand “life” just because they see us living it. We have to strategically “teach” them about the financial principles in the Word of God in this season. A shift must take place. I thank God for the Betsy’s in the world who are obedient to God and who help propel us to the next level. I’m praying my breaker anointing all over this blog. Mindsets are shifting right now in Jesus’s name. We are lenders and not borrowers. Our wealth will be used to bless and prosper the kingdom. Everything we do is about the kingdom. Jené Elaine Walker

Revelation 21:8 “But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
Revelation 22:14-15 “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
In Romans 1:24-29, Paul says “For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
Sexual Immorality: Homosexuality
The Greek translation of sexual immorality in Revelation 21:8 and whoremonger in Revelation 22:15 is pornos, which means a man who prostitutes his body to another’s lust for hire; a man who indulges in unlawful sexual intercourse, a fornicator. In both scriptures, God says that the sexually immoral will not make it into heaven. Sexual immorality also includes the following:
any unlawful sex (not according to the world’s laws but to God’s law),
sex not ordained by God,
sex that is not covenant sex:
adultery (sex with someone’s spouse),
homosexuality (sex with same sex),
masturbation (sex between yourself and evil spirits you conjure up or you masturbating another person),
pornography (using graphic images to have sex in your mind or to masturbate),
bestiality (sex with animals),
perversion (incest- sex with family members or objects or any other perversion),
orgies (group sex),
effeminacy in men, and
masculinity in women, etc.
Sexual immorality is one of the sins in the “list of sins” that is one of the most prevalent sins on earth. It is a sin that makes almost every sin list in the Bible. Sexual immorality is also sin that God says will prevent us from going to heaven. Do you think for one second that the devil hasn’t made this sin and the spirits associated with it some of the most powerful temptations for humanity? God says in Romans 1 that we know the truth and that when we continue in wickedness it is because we have suppressed the truth. God has shown us and we have refused to glorify God in our actions.
Although spiritual warfare is involved in our daily struggles with sexual immorality, most scriptures about sexual immorality indicate that sexual immorality is an act of our own flesh. Our flesh desires sex and we have to die to our flesh. In Romans 1, Paul wrote to a group of people in Corinth where sexual immorality and idolatrous prostitution were rampant. He refers to the people in the text as “male” and “female” to show how they have stepped outside of what natural men and women were created by God to do.
1.Women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Exchanged in the text means “changed.” The women changed what was agreeable to nature for what was against nature. The women began to have sex with other women. To exchange what God originally created and how He originally created us is a sin. It is a slap in God’s face. It is as if we don’t recognize and honor God’s sovereignty in His creating us so we exchange, change, or alter our God-given nature from how God originally intended for us to be.
2.Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. Men “left” the natural use of the woman and began to burn in their lust for another man. God said that these homosexual men committed what is shameful. The act of a man receiving another man’s penis in his anus is an act of receiving the penalty of their own error. This could mean the diseases that are a result of sexual immorality, such as HIV, or the humiliation and shame that homosexuality often causes, or worse the judgment of God. It is interesting that that law for homosexuality was passed in our nation and we seem to think that legalized homosexual marriages is “new.” Remember, Paul is speaking to the Romans in this text during the time when the Roman Empire approved of homosexual prostitution and legalized the same-sex marriage. Nero who was then the emperor, was in a pedophilia homosexual marriage during that time.
During Noah’s time, the fallen angels came down and slept with the daughters of men. But seemingly something worse happened dealing with animals of every kind and men. In Matthew 24:37-39, Jesus says “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” In order for Jesus to say that the people were eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage and then the flood took them, we know that the marrying and giving in marriage must not have been “normal” or “natural” in order for God to destroy the earth (See Genesis 6; See the Book of Enoch Chapter 7). The giants not only defiled the daughters of men but the giants and men began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and then to devour each other’s flesh and drank blood. Bestiality, perversion, and idolatrous bloody rituals. Jesus forewarned us that this is how it will be when He comes back for us. So the legalized homosexuality of our time is a sign of the end being not near but here. [If you google bestiality (sexual intercourse between humans and animals) for a definition, be extremely careful because evidence that this practice is already prevalent today will be in the cookies of your computer. Do not click the images/videos.]
Sodom and Gomorrah was a city that was infiltrated by homosexual and bloodthirsty violent men. As their sexual appetites were insatiable, they resorted to all other manners of evil (i.e., they were willing to sodomize Lot to get to the two angels at Lot’s house in order to have sex with them).
One of the most interesting prophetic scriptures relating to male homosexuality though is the prophecy in Daniel 11:36-37. Daniel says “And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.” The anti-Christ of the end times seemingly is a Jew which is indicated by God of his fathers, and is homosexual as he has no desire for women. Your spirit should have quickened after reading this information. So, the set up for a homosexual leader in the end times has always been a part of the plan of the evil one. Jesus said He came to destroy the works of the evil one. Those works have to be destroyed through our living according to His Word and according to the Spirit that indwells us if we believe.
The punishment for the sin in Romans 1 was that God gave them over to a debased mind. God hates sexual immorality and the devil uses every scheme, tactic, and sensory image to entice and entangle us and keep us bound to sexual immorality. We can’t turn on the television or radio or computer without images of sin. The spirits begin to attack our children at young ages and some of our children get these spirits in the birth canal being passed down from spirits in us. And now, it is legal by the world’s standards in the world’s system to be perpetually sexually immoral through homosexual marriages.
We have to reject exchanging what is natural for what is unnatural. Men have to reject leaving the natural use of a woman and burning with lust for another man. If we are struggling in the area of sexual immorality – homosexuality, God can and will bring us out if we surrender our flesh to Him. We can’t keep indulging in sexual immorality without suffering grave consequences; it could cost us our eternal life. Hell is real. There won’t be a party or social gathering or vacationing there. It is a fiery lake of burning sulfur; eternal burning. We must consecrate ourselves and come out of sin now. We reject the principles, regulations, and standards of the world’s system if it contradicts the kingdom’s systems. Yield not to temptation. Do not conform to the patterns of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Burning in hell is not an option for us.
