Children, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with TRUTH [(1) God is the Spirit of Truth], having put on the breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the GOSPEL OF PEACE; above all, taking the shield of FAITH with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of SALVATION, and <u>the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT</u>, which is the WORD OF GOD; PRAYING ALWAYS with all prayer and supplication IN THE SPIRIT, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication FOR ALL the saints —
Rest and listen. There is a killer among you: satan (see John 8:43-47). He seeks to kill you and all of Mine. He does not rest, but is constantly on the move. He never stops (see 2 Cor 4:3-6; Eph 2:1-3; 1 John 5:19).
Only I, your Lord God Almighty can, will, and am stopping him continually. (2)Put on your armor, and know victory. You are Mine, and I am your eternal life: alive within you now.
I am My Word, and My Spirit and Word are one. (see John 6:63; John 1:1). As I speak My Word through you, know that My Holy Spirit in you sets you free. In your freedom, speak Me, who is God; and cease boasting and speaking about the evil in the world (see Luke 11:22-23; Rom 13:12; 2 Cor 6:4-10; Eph 6:11-18). Instead, through praise, thanks, and worship set free God’s Spiritual power (see Ps 8:2; Matt 21:15-16).
(3)Form My wall of strength around you. Feel My power and strength well up from within you and pour out, through God’s Spirit, against him who brings all harm, death, and sin to My earth and people. Rise up, people of God; and see My victory along with Me, as I move against him. Speak Me, and we are one. (4)Raise My own Sword against him as you allow Me to speak for you, and through you (see Eph 6:14-18).
My Will be done on earth as in heaven, Amen Amen and again Amen;” Christ again says, “The victory is Mine and I share it with you.”
(1) “God is the Spirit of Truth”: See John 15:26; John 4:23-24; John 14:16-17; John 16:13-15; 1 Pet 1:22]
(2) “Put on your armor, and know victory”:
(1 Chronicles 29:11-12)
Yours, O Lord , is the greatness, the power and the glory, the VICTORY and the majesty; for all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all. Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; in Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.
(1 Corinthians 15:50-54)
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed — in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in VICTORY.”
(1 John 5:4-5)
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And <u>this is the VICTORY</u> that has overcome the world — our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
(3) “Form My wall of strength around you” (+) “Feel My power and strength”:
Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, (3a)for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”
So the Levites [priests] quieted all the people, saying, “Be still, for the day is holy; do not be grieved.” And all the people went their way to eat and drink, to send portions and rejoice greatly, because they understood the words [of God] that were declared to them.
(3a) “for the joy of the LORD is your strength”
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Today, many of God’s Children are waiting for the manifestation of God’s power on earth. Notice that all of the scriptures below tell us that the Holy Spirit and God’s Power are one. This is one of the most important reasons God has given us His Holy Spirit to live within us (see 2 Corinthians 6:16; Ezekiel 36:27; 2 Timothy 1:14…).
God has said numerous times, through me, that the power of God is locked within His love where it is safe: from satan and all evil men and women. God’s love is not as man’s, because our love for each other is often judgmental and conditional. Satan is incapable of experiencing God’s love, and evil has no access to God or His love; therefore anyone not walking in God’s given Love is without the power of God.
God our Father gave us His own love toward mankind through Christ Jesus. The power of God normally comes from, and through God’s Holy Spirit as He lives within us and around us:
He will also go before Him in the Spirit and Power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
Then Jesus returned in the Power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
[Jesus said:] “But you shall receive Power <u>when the Holy Spirit has come upon you</u>; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
… God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with Power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
(1 Corinthians 2:4-5)
And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of Power, <u>that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the Power of God.</u>
(4) “Raise My own Sword”: (see Eph 6:10-19, above)
What a blessing You are Holy Spirit. Thank You for Your loving letter and revelation today. In His Love, All Your Children, Amen.
