Opposition to your God-confidence and self-confidence,
Opposition to your soundness of mind and body, are all contraventions and affronts to the word of God, and the mind of God and should be resisted, in the matchless Name of Jesus and by the power of the Spirit.
Use the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. Cut down every demonic tree that stands in the way. Put on the whole armour of God as to stand in the evil day. “You shall decree a thing and it shall be established. Ask of Me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance… ..the kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent takes it by force..
In the world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world. Whoever is born of God overcomes this world…You have overcome them. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in this world …”
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony , and they did not love their lives to the death. Rev12:11
If God be for you, who can be against you? In Him you live, in Him you move and in Him you have your very being. Your life is hidden in Christ in God. No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. And every tongue that rises against you in judgement, you shall show to be in the wrong. If God did not withhold Jesus, but delivered Him up for you, how shall He not with Him also freely give you All Things? 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life , nor angels nor principalities nor powers , nor things present nor things to come , 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom8:37-39
8 The end of a thing is better than its beginning; The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. Eccl7:8 Do not despise the day of small beginnings. Zech4:10 7
Though your beginning was small , Yet your latter end would increase abundantly. Job8:7 I will make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. I have gone before to make crooked places straight. I have gone before you to make mountains mole hills. 20 “Be strong and of good courage , and do it; do not fear nor be dismayed , for the Lord God-my God will be with you… 1Chro.28:20
They will Come. They are coming;
Coming from the east and west, north and south.
They will come with know-how; they will come with expertise; they will come with skill and acumen, experience and zeal.
They will come with passion to build. They will come with enthusiasm and initiative and eagerness to continue and finish the work that is afoot.
They will buy into the vision and find fulfilment in their involvement. They will not be tired and will not retire.
Foreigners will come with their resources- gold and silver -to build your walls.
They will do it with joy, with flourish, with a sense of mission like Cyrus of old; like the mid-wives who protected the Israelites; like the remnants who joined hands to build with Nehemiah.
20 … “Be strong and of good courage , and do it; do not fear nor be dismayed , for the Lord God; my God; will be with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you , until you have finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord. 21 Here are the divisions of the priests and the Levites for all the service of the house of God; and every willing craftsman will be with you for all manner of workmanship , for every kind of service; also the leaders and all the people will be completely at your command.” 1Chro.28:20-21 The Gentiles Bless Zion 1 Arise , shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. 3 The Gentiles shall come to your light , And kings to the brightness of your rising. Isa60:3
16 So the last will be first , and the first last. For many are called , but few chosen.” Matt.20:16 10
Therefore , brethren , be even more diligent to make your call and election sure , for if you do these things you will never stumble; 2Pet1:10
12 Therefore , my beloved , as you have always obeyed , not as in my presence only , but now much more in my absence , work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; Phil2:12
Believers Are Salt and Light
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor , how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Matt5:13-14
3 Set a guard , O Lord , over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips. Ps141:3 29
Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth , but what is good for necessary edification , that it may impart grace to the hearers. Eph4:29
Do Not Judge a Brother 11 Do not speak evil of one another , brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother , speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law , you are not a doer of the law but a judge. Jam4:11 10
“He who would love life And see good days , Let him refrain his tongue from evil , And his lips from speaking deceit. 1Pet3:10
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue , And those who love it will eat its fruit. Prov18:21
