The enemy is not worried about religion rather it worries him greatly whenever a Christian bows down and takes a knee to earnestly prays to the Father in the name of Jesus, and whenever a true worshiper worships the Father in Spirit and Truth.
Never pray against people because we are NOT wrestling against flesh and blood; “Human beings” are NOT the enemies..we are wrestling against beings without bodies..the ones that patrol the earth also known as the enemy’s “Estate”, he is called the god of this world 2 Corinthians 4:4, the prince of the earth, he has been ruling this earth for centuries.
We should never take this enemy lightly, he hates and attacks -these two books more than any of the other 66 books of the Holy Bible- the book of Genesis because it shows his devices and the book of revelation because it shows his doom..
That’s why Jesus asked that we should be praying everyday against this common enemy like this..
Matthew 6:9-13 (NIV)
9 “This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, [Who God as a Father]
10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. [God as a King of everything, come quickly]
11 Give us today our daily bread. [We need Your Word daily]
12 And forgive us our debts, [We need You to forgive us]
as we also have forgiven our debtors. [We need You to teach us to forgive other people]
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. [We need You to lead us Father back to You & Protect us from this common enemy]
Amen “So be it”
(Psalm 34:9) “Oh, Fear The LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him HAVE NO LACK!” (have everything)
It’s true that the Bible repeatedly tells us to fear God: “Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him” (Psalm 33:8)
The Word of God the “Bible” Defines fear of the Lord in (Proverbs 9:10) “10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” and it isn’t until we understand this fear we can measure the level of our daily commitment to our fellowship and constant clinging to His Holy Spirit.
It isn’t until we know the Fear of the LORD;
we gain wisdom and find His love, mercy and grace and then from there..
We Praise Him,
We obey Him and submit to Him,
and live by Faith in Him to honor Him for who He is..
And we move, and we run,
and keep on running to pursue hard His heart,
Then we lead others to the same level of fear to be transformed to be renewed into a new image, the image of “Christlike”.
Many nations found it and many tribes ignored it,
This is the Love of fear that generates the ultimate Love itself.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. 8 It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bone.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
“I live who I believe that I am, then it becomes my REALITY that defiles my Identity”.
If our Identity does not identify, edify and glorify God, then it is the evidence work of the commonwealth of the enemy.
Our identity is our “EVERYTHING” which keeps us focused on God’s face, without it we are lost with no guidance no sense of direction like a vessel sailing in the middle of the ocean without a compass lost and tossed wavering alone against the storms and is what the enemy the “thief” is relentlessly after, to steal and kill and destroy.
Who is God?
Who are you to God?
What did God created you to pursue?
Who did God equipped you with, to be always fruitful branch in His vine?
Therefore Protect your true identity with your life through the daily ups and downs -every second of everyday- for this life depends on it. Protect your true identity, sustain it, nourish it and it will keep you fully alive and strong and courageous in Christ.
The enemy has NO use for your health and wealth, no use for even your solid identity in Christ, all of this has no value to him, he does NOT care and has ZERO good motives and intentions for your life and “True” Identity in Christ.
John 10:10 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy [What is he relentlessly after?]; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
16 Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers.
The Holy Spirit is a person like us but very different, He is a Spirit not made out of matter like us, He is God,
The 3rd member of the Godhead (God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit),
We live by the Spirit and Faith not by sight,
He is within us,
Always ready to take away our sorrows and fears, And
Always ready to help us conquer,
Always on the standby to bring us peace, healing and comfort,
Always points us to Christ,
Always wondering why on earth we wander off away from this path?
Always points us to forgiveness not condemnation,
Always intentionally praying for us and for our salvation and sanctification,
Always seeks us, always waiting for us to do what is right, and let it out of our mouth, And
Say the word “Come, come, come to me my God, my helper and my healer, come and take over.. When we do not..
It grieves Him when resist His voice and doubt Him,
It really makes Him feel unhappy when we turn not to Him but on Him..
If we confess our sins..
He is faithful to us, waiting to forgive us all our trespasses, all our unrighteousness,
He protects us, only if we let Him and restores our hearts when we ask Him,
He gets sad and insulted when we deny Him and ignore Him..and
It breaks His heart when we do not pray and do not listen to His voice speaking to us.
He is shy, kind and mighty
He is God, He created all we know and what we do not know, and what we see and what we can not see, the book of Genesis tells us He was here from the beginning hovering over the earth and moving everywhere and we know that He is everywhere..He is in need of nothing and..Always in control of what is in control..
He gives us the gifts which are important but more important are the fruits, He cares about what He can do through us, for us and in us more than what we can do for Him (Good works/deeds). Truly, that we have been saved by His grace through faith never by our good works.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV) 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
