Rant for Jesus-The Enemy July, 2017

The devil was a murderer from the beginning. He stands in lies, he speaks in lies and he acts in lies. There is no truth in him. He speaks according to his own nature. He is a murderer, a liar and the father of lies.

The enemy is armed with bows and spears. They are cruel and have no mercy in them. They are coming in battle formation planning on using you and yours for their purposes and planning to destroy you if you follow them.

Satan and his demons use fear, lies, distractions, deceptions and discouragement to keep us from Jesus. They will come at you and rise up against you in your day of trouble.

Although the enemy comes at you one way the Lord will come at them seven ways to help you. To give you a way out. Look to God, look for your way out. The Lord says, Come to me with your ears wide open, listen and you will find life. My thoughts are not like yours, and my ways are far beyond anything you can imagine. My ways are higher than yours, my thoughts higher than your thoughts.

When Satan whispers in your ear, don’t listen. Turn your thoughts to the Lord. Ask the Holy Spirit to put His thoughts in your mind. Ask Him to overshadow you. We must be sober, and seek to verify what we hear, and square it with God’s Word. If it goes against God’s Word, it is not from God. If it is evil, wicked, hurtful, harmful, accusing, condemning, it is not from God.

From the womb, the Lord called your name (insert your name and speak it out loud). He will hide you in the shadow of His hand. You are like a sharp arrow in His quiver. He said, you are my servant and you will bring me glory. He has written your name on the palm of His hand. The hand of God will be there at every trial. He will lead you beside cool waters if you choose to follow.

God sent us a Savior. He loved us so much He sent His Son Jesus, the chain breaker, to get us out of bondage. He sent the Deliverer to put an end to the days of darkness. God sent a conqueror an overcomer who rose from the dead. The grave could not hold Him, and death could not keep Him from rising again. Don’t look for Him in the grave. He isn’t there. He is risen. He is alive, the Resurrection and the Life.

Come out into freedom and to those in darkness, come into the light. Let all the powers of darkness tremble at what they just heard.

Isaiah 50:5, 7 The Lord has spoken to me and I have listened, I have not rebelled or turned away. I have set my face like a stone, determined to do His will.

Jesus is our Rock our Shield, and He will never fail you.

God Bless. Heal the broken-hearted, bind up all their wounds.
