Has the Revolution Begun?
Satan's time is short and he grows increasingly ruthless. He desires to blind you completely by poisoning your vision. He does not want you to see him as he advances. He uses camouflage to trick My church. He uses your own flesh and its desires against you with the goal to destroy you. Be careful what you look at and bring into My temple. You are My temple and I love you! I tell you this to protect you and not to keep you from "fun". While sin may seem fun for a season, you must understand that Satan's goal is to steal, kill and destroy you, and he is using your own flesh to do it. Your carnal nature is drawn to sin, so you must war within your members and take every thought captive to make it obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ. Remember though, Satan and his demons are not omnipresent nor can they read your mind. Do not get into agreement with his lies. Do not give him and his cohorts power over your life. He can only gain it if you hand it to him. Do not assign to him what belongs to Me and that is glory. Do not glorify him. My church tends to speak over and over again what Satan and his demons are doing and that glorifies them; it magnifies them. Come! Magnify the Lord!
Wash the venom from your eyes in My Living Water. Jesus disarmed the powers and authorities of darkness. He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross. Look at what Jesus has done to defeat them. Speak of what He has done to set you free. Jesus came to give you life and give it to you in abundance. Glorify Him!
Be wise with your words and be wise in your treatment of others. Be wise with all that you say and do. If you follow Jesus' two commandments - to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself - then it will be well with your soul. This is not to say you will not suffer hardship. You will. That thinking is in direct conflict with My Word and is from "another gospel". Jesus taught that tribulation would come, but that He had overcome the world. The prince of this world had nothing on Jesus, and as you are in Christ, Satan has nothing on you either. Take joy in that knowledge!
Remember that the weapons that I have provided to My army are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds. These are not natural weapons but spiritual ones because you are in a spiritual battle. However, I issue this warning: Do not pick up the weapons of your enemy or you will become like your enemy. Satan's weapons are jealousy, suspicion, gossip, envy, dissension, discord, slander, factions, contention, strife, unforgiveness, bitterness, wrath, anger, hatred and the like.
These are rampant in the church and come from a spirit of pride. Satan wants you to emulate him and I have given you the choice as to whom you will serve. So choose wisely! Have I not warned you in My Word that those who practice such things will not enter into My kingdom? Do not emulate the devil. Satan prowls around and seeks to destroy you. He plans to use the death of his servants as an excuse to wage war against the saints. Use My weapons, not the weapons of this world to disarm him and his demons. Pick up the sword of My Word and use it to demolish the evil one's plans to destroy you, your family, those you love and those to whom you are bound by My Spirit. I will give you wisdom and skill to use it. My Word is your sword. Wield it only against the enemy. Do not be found to be one that wounds a brother or sister in Christ when using My Word - your Bible. This is a form of self-mutilation as you are all one body. Instead, love one another deeply with the love (agape) that I give because love covers a multitude of sin.
Strengthen, comfort and encourage each other with My Holy Scriptures. Rulers, authorities, principalities and powers of darkness do not have any defense against My love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness or self-control. When you walk in the fruit of My Spirit; when you love those who hate you and pray for those who persecute you; when you forgive grievances and bear with one another; when you refuse to allow a root of bitterness to take hold of you; when you take up your cross and follow Jesus - then you are demolishing the devil's plans. Walk in victory, beloved! You are known in heaven as My chosen, as My elect, and as My children. Walk humbly before both your God and mankind; if you do, you will have great authority in and by My Spirit. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.
