Welcome to Immanuel Battleground!
If you are visiting us for the first time, welcome! You might be curious, wondering what Immanuel Battleground is all about.. Let me explain why it is chosen for this website and what the name means
It is my heart desire to set up a website teaching about prayer. Why prayer is so important in the life of a believer of Jesus Christ. What should our stand be concerning becoming prayer warriors for God and His Kingdom? Let me ask you some questions: Can you live without oxygen? Can you survive 3 days without your precious iPhone? Can you shut yourself away from every one you know by surviving up in a cabin on the mountainous region without the means to connect with any one at all for 3 weeks? I believe any one can be easily bored to death without a phone, a TV, or a car. We need to be connected to people because social interaction is very important to every human being.
In our connection to God, we pray. Therefore, prayer is our communication to Him as well as His communication to us.
Why the name Immanuel Battleground?
Immanuel in the Bible means “God with us“. It simply means we are in the presence of God. When we pray, we are seeking God. When we are on the holy ground, we dwell in the presence of God. That is what praying seek to do.
When we pray, we are also on the battleground. What do you mean? Well, according to the Bible in Ephesians 6:12, it say:
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Our daily battles that we are in, are with the evil forces of the world. Yet at the same time, God often reminds us the battles we fight belong to Him. If we understand the power we’ve received from God through the full armor of God we put on, victory belongs to us. Victory is first received in our time of prayer and intercession in the mighty presence of God. That is why praying is so important.
This website aims to teach the importance of understanding the need to pray, the power of prayer in the presence of the Almighty God. Without God, our prayers are utterly meaningless and powerless. Our hope is to rise up a group of prayer warriors who truly pray with power and authority in the presence of the Almighty God and advance His Kingdom.
