Know Your Enemy

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. Genesis 3:4

When tragedy strikes who do we blame? Many times when we suffer, we blame God. He is the first to get the blame for everything and usually the last to get thanks for anything. But what about Satan? Did he not tell us we will not die? Even though God warned us not to eat from the forbidden fruit (Genesis 3:3) we ate it anyway and when the wages of our sin which is death comes upon us (Romans 6:23), we curse our Creator who warned us.

Know who your real enemy is , Satan, the thief that only comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10) Your enemy the devil who prowls around like a lion looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8) But Jesus came to give life (John 10:10) so why don’t you follow him?

Jesus overcame on the cross and put all our enemies under his feet, including the last enemy to be destroyed which is death (1 Corinthians 15:26) Jesus is the resurrection (John 11:25) the living water (John 4:14)  the truth life and only way to God and eternal life (John 14:6)

So know your enemy , we are in a spiritual warfare for your soul put on the whole armor of God stand against the schemes on Satan (Ephesians 6) in Jesus Name Amen

Faith Is Hope

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

The original Greek word used for hope is elpida which means expectation and trust. So when we say to hope for we mean to expect Gods deliverance. Most people when they think of hope, they believe its false hope or throwing a penny in the wishing well. But we must have confidence in our faith.

Jesus said “Blessed are those who have not seen yet still believed” When you put your trust and hope in God, you will be blessed

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. Hebrews 11:3

God spoke the Heaven and Earth into existence, he formed us in the womb. Many will say that is not enough for me. Even though the signs of an intelligent designer are clearly present in all things, most won’t have faith. For we walk by faith and not by sight, it’s important to understand this principle.

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6

Imagine raising your children and they deny everything you tell them. That’s what it feels like to God when we deny his existence and his Word. He has giving us everything including sacrificing his only begotten Son Jesus to save us. God measures your heart, if you go to him with a false heart he knows. You must take that leap of faith and trust in God.

By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith. Hebrews 11:7

Noah trusted in God, even though everyone mocked and laughed at him. Because Noah trusted in God he not only saved his family but the entire human race. Many today still mock this event, but there is actually lots of scientific evidence that supports The Flood was an actual historic event.

What level is your faith at today? Are you confident that God will deliver or are you hopeless? Jesus said anyone with faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains, do you have a mountain you need moved today?

There Will Be A Day

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelations 21:4

The promise that Jesus delivered us that we hold on to, during hard times and suffering we know there will be a day when death and pain are no more. The corrupted world has passed away and God has restored paradise once again.

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. Revelations 21:5

Jesus is our King and he is sitting on the throne right now. All nations and governments rest on his shoulders, he will rule with a rod of iron. Gods Kingdom will once again be restored thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ who lowered himself below the angels to redeem us for our sins

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. Revelations 21:6

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word is Jesus Christ, the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus was here before Creation and he will be here to restore Creation. He makes a things new, get ready paradise is coming back.

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelations 21:7-8

Accept Jesus are your Lord and Savior and live forever in Gods Kingdom, no more death, no more pain, no more evil. But those who deny or oppose Jesus have no future.

Jesus is the Truth , Life , and The Way nobody comes to God except thru him. Give your life to him today and inherit eternal life in Gods Kingdom in Jesus Name Amen

Weapons of Warfare

But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh 2 Corinthians 10:2-3

We are all in a war right now, its not just a war of the flesh but a Spiritual War. While Jesus came to save your soul, Satan wants to destroy your soul. There are greater forces for and against us that we can’t possibly understand. But if you stand with the Word of God, you accept the Blood of Jesus Christ, you will not be defeated.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds 2 Corinthians 10:4

What are our “Weapons of Warfare” that God has equipped us with to defeat Satan?

  • The Blood of Christ
  • Continual Prayer
  • The Word of God
  • The Holy Spirit
  • The Love of God
  • The Church

These are our Weapons, the question is are you using them? Or are you going defenseless in a dark world? That’s like a sheep going to the slaughter.

Jesus is sitting on the throne, he is sitting at the right hand of God. There is no power in this world that is greater. He has already overcome and defeated the world. Thru Christ living in you , you can overcome the world also.

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ 2 Corinthians 10:5

Just like in the Garden of Eden, Satan wants to exalt himself above God. Declaring his Word is false and there is no heaven and hell. But know this Satan is a liar and will be cast into the “Lake of Fire” for eternity. Jesus is the Truth, Life, and the Way nobody gets to Heaven without going thru him

And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10:6

We see a lot of ministers who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. If you’re going to preach the Word of God then you must live the Word of God. Everyone wants to get to Heaven, but only those who are obedient to Gods will are worthy.

Be prepared for the Spiritual War, arm yourself with Gods “Weapons of Warfare”. Know who your enemy is because your enemy knows who you are in Jesus Name Amen

Armor of God

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:10-11

Many view Christianity as weak but its quit the opposite, the power of God that rose Jesus Christ from the dead is the same power living in you. God has equipped us to stand against Satan thru  the Armor of God

Satan is like a roaring Lion looking to devour you and your family, we need the Armor of God because there is power in the name of Jesus Christ. Demons tremble by the sound of his name, you are equipped and empowered to take a stand.

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. Ephesians 6:12

When tragedy strikes us instead of turning to God we often try to fight or recover on our own. This is a big mistake, as alone we are powerless against evil, but with the Armor of God we are equipped to fight back against Satan and his demons.

But first we must acknowledge and recognize there is a spiritual world, a world full of angels and demons that is beyond our comprehension. But we are not alone, God will never leave us or forsake us.

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peaceEphesians 6:13-15

Equip yourself with the belt of truth in Gods word. You will not waver when you know the truth and the truth shall set you free. The breastplate of righteousness was giving to us by Jesus on the cross, only by his sacrifice, thru him we can stand against anyone. Stay alert and sober with your feet fitted with readiness, don’t let Satan catch you off guard, always be prepared.

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Ephesians 6:16

For we walk by faith and not by sight, your faith will be tested, but if its strong will not waver and will be able to stand against Satans attacks. Faith is your shield, the stronger your faith the stronger your shield will be to protect you

 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:17-18

Satan is the master at manipulation and mindgames, he’s going to get into your head and make you doubt your faith. But remember we have Salvation thru Jesus, when Satan reminds you of your past remind him of his future.

Finally the Word of God is like a double-edged sword, it cuts right to the heart of the wicked. Why are so many offended by the Bible, because its truth and evil doesn’t like truth.

God has equipped you with his Armor to stand against evil, learn it, live it, and use it because its your only defense against the wicked one in Jesus Name Amen
