Victorious in the Lord

“Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, ‘Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!’  But He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.’ ”    Matthew 16:22-23

“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.”  Romans 8:7

“Whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.” 2 Corinthians 4:4

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”                                                Ephesians 6:12-17

Divide & Conquer

Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the [a]blind and mute man both spoke and saw. 23 And all the multitudes were amazed and said, ‘Could this be the Son of David?’

“24 Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, ‘This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.’

“25 But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: ‘Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? 27 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.’                      Matthew 12:22-28

Dear Jesus, let Your enemies be scattered as we stand in unity with You, Father God and Holy Spirit. Amen

First of the Year Cleansing

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace”                                                                                  Ephesians 1:7

“For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”                           Hebrews 9:13-14

“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”                                                                                              1 John 1:7-9

“By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”                                                                                           Hebrews 10:11

“It is finished!”                     John 19:30

I need Jesus.  Some churches do a corporate fast and prayer or Daniel fast at the beginning of each year.

Our Soul Has Escaped

Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers;
The snare is broken, and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.”

Psalm 124:7-8

“If we’ll just learn to worship God even during the difficult circumstances, He will change them for the better very quickly if He so chooses.”

Oswald Chambers, December 18, My Utmost

“Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.” Psalm 91:3 (KJV)

“Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.” Psalm 141:10 (KJV)

Since every person is redeemable through Jesus Christ, you can always attribute this prayer as to the wicked spirits of Satan. Praise God!

Tried & True Faith

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

“Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.”

Philippians 4:13, 20

“As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”                                      Psalm 18:30 (KJV)

God’s permissive will is the testing He uses to reveal His true sons & daughters…Put up a glorious fight and you will find yourself empowered with His strength.”

Oswald Chambers, Dec 16th, My Utmost.

 

Mr. Nice Guy…

…goes to hell.

A good pastor friend told me once I had to learn confrontation.  It was so biblical and he was right.

“More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!” Jesus in Luke 11:28

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”              Paul in Colossians 3:16 (NIV)

It makes me feel bad for the Pastor who wanted to be well liked and never corrected anyone. The congregation suffered from devil worship and alcoholism.

“Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly.”            James 3:1 (NLT)

 

 

“No One Will Bother You”

“The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.” Psalm 34:7

When this young man, Michael, said the above, defending me from a cursing and drinking man, I proclaimed, “You are someone’s son!” And, “You’re like the archangel.”

“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”  Hebrews 13:2 (NKJV)

Jude 1:9, (KJV), “Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”

 

 

Stand Up For Jesus

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  Jesus in John 3:16

Jesus Christ the only son of God, Praise You, Lord Jesus for all You’ve done for us, who are Your children, Your friends.  “It is finished,” You said.  Forever & ever Your work is complete, and You are seated on the throne in Heaven next to the Father.  Amen.

We are hurting for You, Lord, when people use Your name in vain and ignore who You are.

“When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished.” Then bowing his head, he gave up his spirit.” John 19:30 (KJV)

 

Layers

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

“While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.  For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18

“For we walk by faith, not be sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7

Layers of atmosphere, spirits good & evil.  Pay attention to Him, our Father.  Agree with His Holy Spirit.  A recent meditation class wants you to empty your mind, but fill it with what?

“I know a man in Christ…caught up to the third heaven.” 2 Corinthians 12:2

“…he was caught up into Paradise…” 2 Corinthians 12:4

The Anointing

“But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.” 

1 John 2:27

“For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.”

1 John 3:20-21

“It shall come to pass in that day
That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder,
And his yoke from your neck,
And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.”         Isaiah 10:27

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.”                   Psalm 23:5

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”Ephesians 6:17
