Gracious God we bow before You, we adore You, we magnified Your Name for all Your Love, Care, Peace, Protections and Healing in the lives of Your beloved children. Indeed You are Worthy to be glorified, thank You for Your manifold blessings upon us now and for ever.
Beloved, have been concern about the threats of the devil in your life and your beloved ones? Are you so afraid that you are considering alternatives measures to safeguard your lives and properties? If I may ask you, how did you wake up this morning? Peradventure you drove yourself to work or shopping, how did you ensured your safety? So you can see that there is no end to your running and how far do you think you can even run?
Interesting, God said no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper neither will any tongue succeed that shall raise against you in judgment. I can feel you are a bit relax, just reminded you of a promise you have forgotten but you know what, am not yet done. Are you also aware that your iniquities shall not be inputted against you, meaning that there will be no commendation for them that are in Christ Jesus. For more of these… click here
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.” Isa. 54:17
There is great clatter in the forges and smithies of the enemy. They are making weapons wherewith to smite the saints. They could not even do as much as this if the Lord of saints did not allow them; for He has created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire. But see how busily they labor! How many swords and spears they fashion! It matters nothing, for on the blade of every weapon you may read this inscription: It shall not prosper.
But now listen to another noise: it is the strife of tongues. Tongues are more terrible instruments than can be made with hammers and anvils, and the evil which they inflict cuts deeper and spreads wider. What will become of us now? Slander, falsehood, insinuation, ridicule — these are poisoned arrows; how can we meet them? The Lord God promises us that, if we cannot silence them, we shall, at least, escape from being ruined by them. They condemn us for the moment, but we shall condemn them at last, and for ever. The mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped, and their falsehoods shall be turned to the honor of those good men who suffered by them.
“In those days, and in that time, saith the Lord, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.” Jer. 50:20
A glorious word indeed! What a perfect pardon is here promised to the sinful nations of Israel and Judah! Sin is to be so removed that it shall not be found, so blotted out that there shall be none. Glory be unto the God of pardons!
Satan seeks out sins wherewith to accuse us, our enemies seek them that they may lay them to our charge, and our own conscience seeks them even with a morbid eagerness. But when the Lord applies the precious blood of Jesus, we fear no form of search, for “there shall be none,” “they shall not be found.” The Lord hath caused the sins of His people to cease to be: He hath finished transgression, and made an end of sin. The sacrifice of Jesus has cast our sins into the depths of the sea. This makes us dance for joy.
The reason for the obliteration of sin lies in the fact that Jehovah Himself pardons His chosen ones. His word of grace is not only royal, but divine. He speaks absolution, and we are absolved. He applies the atonement, and from that hour His people are beyond all fear of condemnation. Blessed be the name of the sin-annihilating God!
This is not to say that we have the freedom to sin willfully, for if the Son of Man had redeemed you and you carelessly go into sin, you will be hold accountable by God. You are not to take the grace of God for granted, it is not only a sin but a sin against the Holy Spirit who teaches you all things.
The devil will try to hold you bound in your confessed and forgiven sins, he can use anybody to constantly remain you how unfit you are for God’s use. I experienced it also when I received the divine calling and was preparing to go into the ministry but my freedom came the day Jesus asked me “my daughter, why did I went to the cross? I died so that you may live; I paid the price of your sins so that you can operate in liberty, why then should I ever input your iniquities on you again? Why will I take a double charge on a commodity already paid for? Is not I but the devil, the accurse of the brethren”. Beloved I heard the voice, it was so audible and clear, I screamed on the steering because I was driving, it was early in the morning on my way to the bible school, that day I regained my freedom and I have been operating on that victory won for me on the cross; you can also do the same starting from this moment.
Beloved, I don’t know the area where you are struggling in your life, my prayer for you is that you will triumph against the kingdom of darkness and reign with your Father in heaven in Jesus Name. Amen! Praise God!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
