...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
RESISTING THE ENEMY EFFECTIVELY
Words of prophecy:
* For one to truly keep their eyes "fixed" on My Beloved Son [the Word of God] then they must be found continually exercising an absolute faith in His "finished" Work [the place called Done]. For the failure of
one to keep their eyes "fixed" on the "finished" Work of My Dear Son will allow the Enemy to "maintain" his evil schemes against them to a degree - until such a time as that one gains a revelation of "the place called Done" through a deep and thorough repentance
[change of heart] that will SURELY lead that one into the place of "abiding" in the perfect liberty that is ALREADY theirs, in Christ.
Note: There is "a place called Done
[finished]" - a place wherein one not only begins to grasp the reality of the "finished work" of the Lord Jesus Christ but "abides" [dwells]there in the power of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation; the Spirit of Love; the Spirit of
Truth; the Spirit of Christ etc.;]. In this place [true spiritual positioning] [Ephesians 2:4-6], one comes to the "full" realization of the spiritual reality behind the Cross, the Resurrection and the Ascension [the fullness of Authority] and, thus, they
enter into the fullness of the stature of Christ [the completeness found in Him] - and from this holy place they come to appropriate [receive] the fullness of their precious inheritance [salvation - Covenant] and destiny, in Him [Psalm 25:12-14].
No scheme or schemes of the Enemy [no matter how elaborate] can remain standing in the light [revelation] of the spiritual reality of the "finished work" of the Cross - where
My Beloved Son TOTALLY disarmed every last power and element of darkness, forever.
"elaborate"- marked by intricate and often excessive detail; complicated;
* My children are ALREADY set free [healed, prosperous] with the perfect liberty that was bought with a great price at Calvary - but how many have an "abiding" revelation of that spiritual reality?
...."Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen,
it will be [granted] him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe [based on the finished work of the Cross, the revealed Word of God and the Blood Covenant] that you have [already] received them, and they will be [granted] you"....
Mark 11:23-24 NASB
Again, it is very important for one facing an attack of the Enemy to begin to "consistently" speak the Word of God - and/or "revelatory" words
that are in perfect alignment with it [true prophecy etc]. Even if one just simply begins by reading scriptures out loud [regardless of how oppressed they feel]they must do it - because the very first step of faith in driving away the Enemy and his tormenting
spirits is to resist him by "proclaiming" [lit. "shouting out loud" - from the Latin origin of the word] the Word of God in his face. If one takes the step in faith to resist him, God's Grace will kick in "fully" and peace and joy [which is our strength]will
ensue. There are those that can exercise faith on our behalf [and that is of God]however, WE must exercise the faith that the Father has called us to exercise in any given moment, also.
Take a leap in faith and trust in the Father and His Word with all of your heart - you will not be disappointed. If you resist the Enemy in the manner the Holy Spirit instructs you to in any given moment, HE WILL FLEE!!!
...."Just as it is written, "BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE, AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED".... Romans 9:33 NASB
...."Submit therefore to God [in obedience]. Resist the devil [from the position of faith in a revelation of the Father's Word/Will] and he will flee from you".... James 4:7 NASB
...."Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater
(mightier) than he who is in the world"... 1 John 4:4 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You for Your great Love - and for all that You have DONE for us, in Christ. We set ourselves, in this most critical and glorious hour to step fully into the place of an absolute and abiding trust and faith in You. And we declare
it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
