I woke up this morning with a heavy discernment of who is against me and many believers. NOT people, but the demonic forces of the enemy, trying to attack our integrity, character, judgement, value and calling. When we stumble, fall and live in sin, it gives a door for it to take over us and many will be deceived and not know who or what GOD we truly serve because we are living in sin. God desires us to be HOLY as he is HOLY so many know who he truly is. He needs PURE vessels!
See, the devil who was once a glorious angel who lived in heaven, walked with God but then became sinful while being in his kingdom, then was kicked out of heaven and began to go against GOD and everything GOD had plan for the human life. Today the devil still tries to come against those who are living in the kingdom who are working and pressing toward to the goal God has in stored for them.
When the devil KNOWS that one has a huge calling, a huge purpose and is daily living for GOD, he will try everything under the sun to make this person fall, just like he did and be separated from God because of sin.
WELL my friends, this was the revelation God gave me this morning. See we all have choices we need to make in life. When you are a believer and walk daily with his Holy Spirit, he comes and warns you of certain choices. Either you take heed in what he is showing you, OR fall victim, fall for the one who comes to steal, kill and destroy as an angel of light.
The word of God shows us in a few scriptures that when JESUS died and rose again, he was going to send us a helper, an advocate, a counselor to walk with us or run with us in this race! He then showed us that the enemy will come to throw us off track, BUT if we keep our eyes on JESUS, we keep pursing him and not what our flesh desires, we will pass the tests, make the mark and we will go higher in the glory he has for us. We go from glory to glory to glory, but if we fall into our temptation, our sin that will leave us feeling condemned, unworthy and miserable, we stop the process of going up.
We fall down, we stepped back then we need to start ALL over again! Why start all over when you are right where you need to be? Start now being STRONG, don't TRY but DO it! Have faith in knowing that what God has planned for you will come to pass and what is trying to distract you from it MUST leave and must be gone and removed!
The plan the devil has for you will not succeed when you look him in his face (imagine) and speak the BLOOD OF JESUS over that temptation, over that distraction over that plan that is made to harm you, hurt you and leave you dead spiritually. Speak against those weapons and chains trying to take hold of you! Rebuke them, Cast them out and walk in your victory of overcoming the temptation!
TODAY is the day where we ask ourselves, who is for me? Who is against me?
JESUS is for us - Romans 8:37-39
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that 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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
JESUS is for us - Deuteronomy 3:16
16 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
JESUS is for us - John 14:15-21
15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
JESUS is for us - John 10: 2-3
2 The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
JESUS is for us - Romans 8:31-34
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
WHO is against us - John 10: 10,
10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
WHO is against us - Ephesians 6: 11-13
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
To be in God's will is to know his word, live by it and live by his voice and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We must discern, we must be aware of the schemes and we must take captive thought over them, knowing who is for us and who is against us!
GOD will NEVER send something into your life that is meant to harm you. If God uses people, the devil uses them also!
SO PLEASE, stand guard, know the actions of all and trust the Holy Spirit and ask God to give you the spirit of discernment.
1 John 3:8, 7 Little children, let no one deceive you: The one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as Christ is righteous. 8 The one who practices sin is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the very start. This is why the Son of God was revealed, todestroy the works of the devil. 9Anyone born of God refuses to practice sin, because God’s seed abides in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.
KNOW WHO YOU ARE. KNOW YOUR WORTH. KNOW YOUR PURPOSE!
PASS THE TESTS!
