The Ancient Enemies of Israel Have Entered Our Land — Who are the Canaanites?

The Ancient Enemies of Israel Have Entered Our Land — Who are the Canaanites?

Welcome, and thank you for joining us today as we share the third part of our series.  We are looking at the ancient enemies of Israel, who they are and what they represent, and how these spirits are still relevant today in our nation and world. This is extremely valuable information to raise our awareness of the battles we fight daily. We know these battles are not of flesh and blood, but of spirits and principalities.

Part 3 – Who are the Canaanites? ~~ by Susan Pons

What happens when enemies enter our land? Exodus 34:10 says “As of right now, I’m making a covenant with you: In full sight of your people I will work wonders that have never been created in all the earth, in any nation. Take careful note of all I command you today. I’m clearing your way by driving out Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites. Stay vigilant. Don’t let down your guard lest you make covenant with the people who live in the land that you are entering and they trip you up”.

Who were these enemies that had entered the land of Israel? Let’s define them and compare them to our America in today’s world. Today we will talk about the Canaanites.

Canaanite – The name Canaanite means trafficker. This is the exact same description given to satan in Ezekiel 28:13-18. This spirit is behind addictions and sexual impurity. This is why in the Scriptures, Sodom and Gomorrah were said to be Canaanite cities as told in Genesis 10:19. Jezebel was the daughter of Ethical king of Sidon, which means she was Phoenician, who were Canaanites. The Canaanite spirit uses wealth and material gain to bring God’s people into compromise and backsliding. Sexual trafficking, labor trafficking, and drug trafficking are start examples of the Canaanite spirit that has invaded our land.

Father God, we repent on behalf of our nation for all of these trafficking offenses that are so evil in Your eyes. When we look from a heavenly perspective it’s so hard to believe what our nation has become. We know that Your promises are real, and if we repent and turn away from these things You will heal our land. We pray for Your help and Your healing, holy, and righteous Spirit to increase in our nation. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.

Here at Christian Training Center International, we put much time and effort into making sure we are all updated and at least aware of current news and happenings in both the spiritual and also the physical realm in this world. The spiritual battle on earth is not new nor has much changed in the enemy’s tactics. It is so important for us all to be involved in prayer to Almighty God for our government and nation and other current world events.

Part 1 – Who are the Hittites? ~~ by Susan Pons

“Behold, I will send you Eli’jah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the land with a curse (Malachi 4:5-6).

Yes or No?

Welcome from all of us at CTCI. Please join us today as we see what the Lord God says about how we should handle our responses to others’ requests of us.

How often do we make a promise and fail to keep it? Our intention at the time we committed was good. We know that it’s wrong to go back on our word, but still we say to ourselves “It’s not very important what’s the big deal? What does it matter?” Well, the Word of God tells us that it is very important. I for one, am guilty of missing the mark, but convicted today to do something about it. Where and when did this business of promising begin anyhow? Why do we need to go beyond the simple answer of yes or no? Here is what the Bible has to say:

Discipleship

Discipleship is messy; there is no way around it. Imperfect people, following a perfect man, while persuading others to join the impossible task??? If it were not for the internal work of God in us, this is exactly what it would be. But with Gods help, being a disciple and making disciples – is an incredible joy. Knowing this, we must train ourselves to understand discipleship through a simple lens. We must learn how to view life, and the lives of others, through a lens that directs us towards Gods end goal – maturity in Christ.

Below are sections from two different articles on discipleship from ministries I have looked up to over the years, and there is a third take on discipleship by us, here at CTCI.

It is important to that we train our minds to view life through a biblical lens. A simple lens that can help us mature as disciples of Jesus.

“What is a Disciple”
Jonathan Parnell of Desiring God

(Quotes are only a portion of the complete document)

“… a disciple of Jesus is a worshipper, a servant and a witness.”
