The Lord loves Battle-plans. The Old Testament is full of God’s Battle-plans.
Spiritual Mapping is an act of love. Love for your neighbour, and war against the spiritual force, the devil and his demons.
Spiritual Mapping is quite a newly found Christian “concept“, to make re-borne Christians aware that they can take spiritual authority of their land, their homes, their farms and their territory. This battle-plan attacks the spiritual enemy in the spirit. The enemy, the devil and his demons is a spiritual enemy, and therefore we as spiritual soldiers of Christ can act in the spirit, to fight the spiritual enemy in the Name of Jesus. The spiritual enemy which acts through people is then neutralized in the spirit and cannot do what it wants to do in this area.
I believe that even God did “spiritual mapping”, when He looked at Sodom and Gomorra, and God wanted to change this city. Even God demarcated areas, where change was required, and made war against the enemy.
Gen 18:20 Then the LORD said to Abraham, “There are terrible accusations against Sodom and Gomorrah, and their sin is very great.
Gen 18:21 I must go down to find out whether or not the accusations which I have heard are true.” (GNB)
We also see that Joshua sent spies into the promised land, to see what is going on, before invading this city.
Jos 2:1 Then Joshua sent two spies from the camp at Acacia with orders to go and secretly explore the land of Canaan, especially the city of Jericho. (GNB)
Then, the Lord’s Battle-plan:
Jos 6:2 The LORD said to Joshua, “I am putting into your hands Jericho, with its king and all its brave soldiers.
Jos 6:3 You and your soldiers are to march around the city once a day for six days.
Jos 6:4 Seven priests, each carrying a trumpet, are to go in front of the Covenant Box. On the seventh day you and your soldiers are to march around the city seven times while the priests blow the trumpets.
Jos 6:5 Then they are to sound one long note. As soon as you hear it, all the people are to give a loud shout, and the city walls will collapse. Then the whole army will go straight into the city.”
Spiritual mapping “process” overview:
- Pleading in a prayer to God that you as a re-born soldier of Christ, wants to see this specific area changed, to get in line with God’s Word.
- Identify an area which needs God’s intervention, through your actions in the spirit. Examples of this:
- A lot of attacks in a certain farming area or community and/or stealing of cattle.
- The selling and buying of drugs in a certain area, drug trafficking.
- Gangs in a certain area.
- Prostitution-houses in a certain area where you live.
- Regular break-in’s in a security complex where you live.
- The exercising of satanism in a certain area.
- Rituals performed by e.g. sangomas in a certain area.
- A need for protection over a place where you stay, e.g. your house, plot, farm or community.
- You longing for revival of a community or a town or place, or land, and you want to see people be re-borne in Christ.
- Overall Godly protection required for a specific area.
- Get a map of this area and strategically identify 4 beacons (markers) surrounding this area: North, South, East, West beacons. Act like a “spy” in Jericho.
- Plan a route, considering the outer borders of this area and its beacons, where you can drive this route with a car or walk this route.
- Ask God for His view, and to also give you scriptures from His Word, on what He wants to see changed in this area.
- Have a meeting with few prayer warriors who lives with “clean hands”, dedicated to Jesus Christ, and share your spiritual plan with them.
- Go out and do warfare prayers in this area, and pray once at these beacons, together with the scriptures that God gave you to pray.
Mat 18:19 “And I tell you more: whenever two of you on earth agree about anything you pray for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.
Mat 18:20 For where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them.” (GNB)
- Repeat this in your everyday prayers in the spirit, lifting these beacons before God’s throne, and reminding Him about your prayer requests for that area. See the change, as God starts working!
Geestelike Afbakening is ‘n nuwe “konsep” waarmee weergebore Christene bewus gemaak word dat hulle hul land, hul huise, hul plase of hul grond kan afbaken, en daarvolgens geestelike outoriteit kan neem oor daardie gebied. Omrede die vyand, die duiwel en sy bose magte juis ‘n geestelike vyand is, gee dit aan weergebore Christene die reg om teen daardie vyand op te tree en te baklei in die gees, in die Naam van Jesus Christus. Die geestelike vyand wat deur gewone mense werk, word geneutraliseer en kan nie doen wat hy wil doen, in daardie gebied nie.
