Scriptures are from the King James Bible.
I didn't have a post scheduled for today but Satan violated in here this a.m. so I had to do my holy duty, and stop to issue him a ticket.
Here is what our Lord told me to write on the ticket issued this a.m. to Satan:
And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses...
...And the Lord heard it.
...wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
...and provoked the Lord to anger.
For it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompences...
For GOD's people:
When the Devil fights us we must hit him back with the weapons of our warfare. We are NOT to fold, faint, or surrender to his wickedness. The Word of GOD says to us in Joshua 1:7, "Only be thou strong and very courageous,..."
Our Lord asks this question, "Does Satan know you?"
...and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.
And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.
The Acts 19:15
And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
Some months ago, I was walking down the street in route to the store. "Out of the blue" a woman verbally assaulted me. She said, "Get out of my way you
m.f. b---h." She said it in a vicious tone. I had never before seen that woman. My full armor of GOD was on. The battle is not ours, but GOD'S - 2 Chronicles 20:15. Isaiah 38:14 says, "...O Lord,...undertake for me." I had no fear. Also, I didn't have a conscious thought before, involuntarily, both my arms "flew" up in the air and I started speaking in tongues. That stunned the woman. She didn't say another word, and immediately after our Lord intervened, she left me alone.
Later I told one of my Christian relatives about it. Some readers here probably know that there are times when even other Christians don't understand... She said something like "Why would that woman oppose you and she didn't even know you?" My response was that the devil in her knows the GOD in me. It is in the spirit realm. Our Lord's Word says that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places - Ephesians 6.
Satan has various ways of coming against us, and our Lord gives us various ways to hit back at Satan. We need to stay tuned to our Lord to know what to do, how and when.
There are scores of people now who do NOT fear GOD. Years ago, there was more fear of GOD, even among sinners. There were just some things that were, for the most part, just not done. Many people have become colder and colder against the things of GOD. The result is an increase in vicious actions.
Several times our Lord has led me to say to people, "You're not afraid of GOD yet, but you will be - sooner, or later, or when it is too late." There are "seasons" when painful truths must be expressed, but we are mandated by our Lord to express His truths in the spirit of LOVE.
Jeremiah 5:22 - 25
Fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence...
But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.
Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter,...
Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.
Shall I not visit for these things: saith the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on such...
What is the answer for Christians? We should become hotter and hotter for JESUS. For the past couple of days, the Lord has told me to "blast" against the powers of darkness. Last night I dreamed that I was in "blast" mode. I am for radical Christianity - something like John the Baptist re-visited. That is a radical righteous ticket. Oh Lord, ticket us with radical Holy Ghost fire that gushes out of the core of our sanctified beings. And imprint on those tickets, "ROCK WARRIORS AHEAD - STONE SERIOUS ABOUT VICTORIOUS SPIRITUAL WARFARE!" Oh Glory!
He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.
The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.
The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways; they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.
Nahum 2:11, 12
Where is the dwelling of the lions, and the feedingplace of the young lions, where is the lion, even the old lion, walked, and the lion's whelp, and none made them afraid?
The lion did tear in pieces enough for his whelps, and strangled for his lionesses, and filled his holes with prey, and his dens with ravin.
For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
