Luke 1:71 “That we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us.”
Jesus came to make us totally free! Freedom from demons, sin, fear and death; so, we can have nothing to fear about. We are literally surrounded by spiritual enemies. Jesus came to deliver us totally from them all. There’s a war in the spirit. There’s never peace in the spirit realm. Know that there’s warfare over your life. I want you to be aware of this fact that they shall never prosper over you. Hallelujah! Our warfare is sometimes financial, mental, marital and medical; the truth is that provision has been divinely made for them all.
Isa 54:13-17 “And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.
In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.
Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.
Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” KJV
The Message version of the Holy Bible solidly affirmed that no matter the siege, onslaught or assault the enemy made put up at us the Lord – Emmanuel, The Omnipotent, is forever with.
Isa 54:13-17 “All your children will have GOD for their teacher – what a mentor for your children!
You’ll be built solid, grounded in righteousness, far from any trouble – nothing to fear! far from terror – it won’t even come close!
If anyone attacks you, don’t for a moment suppose that I sent them, And if any should attack, nothing will come of it.
I create the blacksmith who fires up his forge and makes a weapon designed to kill. I also create the destroyer.
But no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar. This is what GOD’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best. GOD’s Decree!” – The Message Version
THREE POINTS ABOUT THIS SCRIPTURES
- Weapons need to be formed before they come to you, 2 Cor 2:11 “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices..”
- Weapons can be fashioned, that is, they are being deployed against Christians. Psa 34:19 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.”
- Weapons are being fashioned.
WHY WEAPONS WILL NOT PROSPER AGAINST YOU
- Because God say so. It does not matter when and how it was crafted, it will not prosper says the Lord.
- Because Christ already defeated it before it was fashioned.
- Because it is inferior to what we have, that is, The Word of God.
- Because it was made to fail. The power of satan is doomed to fail.
- Because God is on your side. Col 1:13 “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.”
THREE THINGS TO ENJOY VICTORY
- Fear not. Fear attracts demons and oppression.
- Be bold and courageous. Develop boldness through the word of God.
- Stand in your place as a child of God. Stand in righteousness.
NOTE THE FOLLOWING
- You are not attacked by the devil because you’re sinful, wicked or ungodly but because weapons are constantly fashioned.
- The devil takes sufficient time to fashion weapon.
- If God shows you a dream it’s what is happening in the realm of the spirit. Celebrate it if it’s good and cancel it if it’s negative.
- Before God will say anything He would have done it before saying it, Isa 46:9-10.
- The power in the universe is mono-centric and is only in Christ Jesus, Matt 28:18.
- The word of God is good for both offense and defense.
- Don’t expect evil after a terrible dream or prophesy.
- The way to deal with fear and dissipate it is to tell it to someone who can help.
- God promised to ensure everything works out in our favour.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
You must be convinced by the word of God beyond reasonable doubt before the devil can be convinced of your knowledge of victory over him.
God bless you.
