When the Lord first called me in 1984 I had many awesome supernatural experiences.  They were enough to catapult me into a new life and direction and launch my faith to a new level.   I did not know at the time that I would need this.  Because for the next several years I had terrible, terrible resistance in the way of demonic dreams, visions, nightmares, voices at night.  I battled night and day to overcome these things, because I was so inflamed in deep longings for the intimacy I had in the Lord when He first called me.  He comforted me and told me He was putting me through basic training of how to overcome as His warrior.  And I learned so much in those years in the school of overcoming.


The parable He gave me was the story of the Pacific Salmon that live in the

Pacific Northwest.  When they are mature, they travel up from the ocean into the rivers and stream beds from whence they were born. They travel uphill against the current, the rocks, the white water and all the entanglements.  Eventually the strongest make their  way to the very place where the were hatched.  It is there that they lay their own eggs.  As they are finally still you can see their bodies with gashes and wounds from such a hazardous journey upstream.  It is then you truly understand their innate passion.  In spite of their wounds, they relentlessly continue to climb upstream until they have fulfilled their destiny.  Once they have laid their eggs, they die.  Their children swim downstream to the ocean to repeat the process. 


It is the triumphant story of God's overcomers as they decrease and God increases, as they die to self so that God can live through them. 


Rev 12:10-11 NKJV

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,” Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death .


I learned through the process that God alone allows what touches our lives, for good.  And He really is our trainer in every sense of the Word.  I learned a rock hard faith through those years, and now when I get a demonic experience at night it is not for overcoming because I keep my weapons honed, but rather for my training and discipline for opening wrong doors.  


Each and every time the enemy swarms, it is for our promotion.  God will take us higher with greater authority, more revelation and better perspectives than ever.  He brings EVERYTHING together in our lives for good because He is our GOOD FATHER.


Rom 8:35-39  NKJV

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter."    Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Rom 5:3-5  NKJV

And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.


Rom 8:28-30  NKJV

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
