own worst enemy don't

God’s sons and daughters can allow the enemy to plant lies and accept them as their own, allowing them to also become rooted. Thus, the enemy can succeed in making a child of God their own worst enemy.

HOW TO WIN THESE BATTLES…

1. Know the Word for yourself, so you are always ready to answer the enemy with it to take every thought (lie) captive and make them obey Christ, the Word.

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).

For example, when the mind is attacked with the lie of the enemy:

LIE: “You’re never going to be free from that situation.”

Answer with the promise of God, believing it as fact, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers us from them all,” (Psalm 34:19). Since this promise is for you, you can also boldly and confidently say, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers ME from them all.”

LIE: “You’ll always be sick and lame.”

Answer with a promise of God, believing it as fact, “Be Jesus’ stripes, I WAS healed.” Or, from Proverbs 4:20-22, “God’s Word is life and health to my body, so I speak His Word to my body and it has life and health.”

Note, the enemy will also use people around you to speak his lies, even God’s children, because they don’t know the Word for themselves.

Knowing the Word for ourselves doesn’t mean knowing it second hand through a pastor who may or may not even be interpreting the Word correctly depending on his willingness to fully submit to the Holy Spirit as his main Teacher and Guide through the Word.

We are blessed to live in a time where, as we learn the Word, we can easily search for any promise of God related to our situation online. It’s a great idea to print or write out the promises and put them where you can easily see them, pray and declare them.

2. Know there is an enemy seeking to steal, kill, and destroy, seeking whom he MAY devour.

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly,” (John 10:10).

If one is unaware to begin with of the reality of an enemy who isn’t into child’s play but is seeking to steal from, destroy, and kill us, then one can become the thief’s effortless, easily devoured prey.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour,” (1 Peter 5:8).

A child of God doesn’t have to become a MAY. What posture must we stay in to avoid the snake’s devouring? Sober. Vigilant. Readied with the Word. And God says we can be kept in perfect peace through it because our minds are fixed on Him.

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You,” (Isaiah 26:3).

He wouldn’t say it if it were not possible. This will only happen when we get His Word, promises, and truth rooted in us.

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you,” (Philippians 4:8-9).

The Word of God fully equips us for everything the enemy throws at us.

3. Know born again believers are under a new covenant, established and paid in full by Jesus, with new and better promises and that we are no longer slaves but children of God.

“But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises,” (Hebrews 8:6).

God is not dealing with us as He did in the law under a blessing and cursing covenant. Jesus fully fulfilled the law for us and took all its curse upon Himself. E.g. The curse of the law included sickness which Jesus took all of on His body by His stripes.

“I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty,” (2 Corinthians 6:18).

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name,” (John 1:12).

“But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ,” (Galatians 4:4-7).

To summarize, it all boils down to knowing the Word for ourselves and walking with the Lord by the Spirit, knowing the full power of God dwells in every child of God.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him,” (Hebrews 11:6).

That He is, is the Great I AM who rewards those who diligently – how? – diligently seek Him.

I pray this helps and blesses someone who really needs it. It is the calling of every believer to build up his sisters and brothers.

E2S-E2H with HWH-2

This year the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said that He is “raising up those whose only agenda is His agenda.”

While I have been in “pause and pray” mode for several weeks now, the Lord again reminded me of what He spoke. Isn’t that what every believer should want? I do. Especially as He made it a point to mention it to me. It must be vitally important to Him, His heart, and the work He longs to do through His children in the earth to prepare the end times church.

As a result, especially on social media, I am merging the ministry idea he gave me, E2S-E2H (eyes to see, ears to hear’ Matthew 13:16) and His Warring Handmaid with most of the emphasis on the ministry portion. But I will leave the website address as is so I don’t mess up the posts, etc.

I don’t want to have a ministry that says, “Look at me,” in any way, but look at Jesus. Look at what Jesus did and is doing in the earth in this time through His people. *in tears just typing those words*

There’s nothing wrong with someone having a site in their name of course but is something that is important to me and in line with the Word He gave me.

Of course, I still believe God wants us to share our testimonies to encourage others and build their faith but with a bent that gives Him all the glory. Him and His love, goodness, and mighty works. I believe every child of God is called into ministry to show the love of Jesus to others no matter what they do for a living. The lost and hurting are all around us.

unbelief and the words of our mouth

The Lord brought together a word last night, 12/7/2019, regarding the oh so fun, yet necessary topic of unbelief and the words of our mouths.

I was talking with the Lord yesterday and asked, “Am I REALLY hearing You talk to me about unbelief almost non-stop? Unbelief, unbelief, unbelief, is what I’m hearing lately.” I didn’t hear back by the Spirit right then that time, but when I got in my car a few hours later, I turned the radio on and within a minute, I heard a woman say this on the radio, “A person we don’t want to imitate is Zacharias because of his unbelief, but we do want to imitate his wife, Elizabeth, because she stayed in faith. She believed the word of the Lord.” (Somewhat paraphrased but accurate).

“But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth. For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. 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. And Zacharias said to the angel, “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years. And the angel answered and said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings. But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words which will be fulfilled in their own time,” (Luke 1:13-22).

Elizabeth and Zacharias’s son, John’s birth was extremely important because he was being born to prepare the way of our Lord Jesus.

Because of Zacharias’s unbelief, the Lord temporarily muted him because the words of our mouths are so important (revelation from the Spirit from this situation) and unbelief is very serious and blocks people from receiving from the Lord. He muted him to keep him from speaking unbelief over the miraculous pregnancy of his son, possibly so the enemy wouldn’t use him to prevent conception or destroy the birth with unbelief. Only God knows all the depths as to why, but it was very important that Zacharias NOT be able to speak any unbelief over the conception and pregnancy.

The Word says in Psalm 138:2, “For You have magnified Your Word above all Your name,” and He told me to pray that all His people receive this verse as deep revelation knowledge and take it seriously.

Why is the fact that God magnifies His Word above His name so important? Because His Word says:

“Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief,” (Matthew 13:58).

Unbelief blocks the works of God in our lives because He says so. God will neither violate His Word, the one He exalts above His name, nor a person’s free will choice to reject His Word and will for his/her life because of unbelief. BUT He’s bringing this to our attention for a VERY GOOD reason because He desires to bless us and receive from Him so much.

It’s His will to help us with any unbelief (through the Word, prayer, and sometimes fasting), so we CAN receive from Him. He wants us to receive His promises and for His children to walk in the fullness of their callings as sons and daughters. Hallelujah! We praise You, Lord!

“A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; From the produce of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit,” (Proverbs 18:20-21).

Using Zacharias, the Lord is telling us that unbelief and the words of our mouths affect our lives and the outcomes to our prayers and receiving from Him. That His people are not taking Him for His Word on these matters, and He loves us and wants us to.

We look at Proverbs 18:20-21 above and see its GREAT magnitude in our lives:

We are satisfied, filled, and eat of the RESULTS of what we say from our mouths. Are we speaking life (His Word)? Death and unbelief and killing our ability to receive from the Lord based on His Word which He will not violate?

We need not fear but only surrender and ask for help with any unbelief in our lives and with the words of our mouths. We must also prayerfully read and know the Word for ourselves to have more faith and less and less unbelief because the more we know His Word, the more we know His will, and the more we know His will, the more faith we will have, and the more we can pray without unbelief.

I am praying for myself for these things and taking this word from the Lord very seriously and praying it over us and all of God’s people.
