Arming Yourself

Dear Friend,

I want to encourage you to continue to pray, worship, and love on our Jesus. I want you to know He is equipping us for this battle we’re in, so meditate on the Word and let it become a part of you.

To successfully conquer the works of Satan, there are some things we need to understand. I’ve noticed on social media that there are people who seem to think the answer is getting mean, getting ugly, and assassinating the moral character of a person. I don’t think God the Father approves of those tactics. Amen.

I understand that we can get angry over the injustice of things. Jesus didn’t like what people were doing in the temple of God in Matthew 21:12,13, and He let them know:

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Jesus knew what He had to do, and afterwards, many people came into the temple, and He healed them.

It’s one thing to make a stand, but it’s something else to be cruel and vicious. Sadly, we see so much of the latter nowadays.

Jesus loves all of us, and I know His heart is for us to be saved, but He will never agree with sin, and neither should we. However, it has always stuck with me how God gave Jezebel room to repent. What mercy! But she didn’t, and it cost her.

To win this war we’re in, we need to walk as much like Jesus as we can. Romans 12:1,2 says:

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

I know it can be very difficult at times, but the Lord will always be there for us—we’re not alone. We need to work at knowing and receiving who we are in Him.

The greatest weapon we have against Satan is becoming more and more like Jesus. Amen. And the greatest revenge against the enemy would be for the people whom Satan is using to get saved. Glory to God! Romans 12:18-20 tells us how we can help this process along:

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

I would encourage you to seek Jesus more than ever. The Holy Spirit is here to help you. These are some of the things the Bible says will block your prayers: hatred, unforgiveness, perversions, and witchcraft. We can let go of all these things and become a vessel God can pour Himself through.

Satan isn’t the winner, but he is good at finding places in us that he can use. That’s why it’s so important to let go of ungodliness. The best way I know to do this is through praying in tongues, worshiping, meditating on the Word, and yes, fasting.

Jesus accomplished all things, and He lives in us. He said in John 14:30: Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. Hallelujah!!

In His love,
