"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) Our God is always present, never absent. A Christian lives in faith and in certainty. Our God will do great things. "I will not die, I will live, and I will declare the works of the Lord." (Psalm 118:17) We proclaim our healing, our victory.
What is the trial that can make me lose hope in God? Even if He doesn't do it today, He will tomorrow. What is the one thing in this world that you can trade for eternal life? God has given you eternal life, and on this earth, He takes care of you. We are rich in Jesus Christ. You will never lack anything. "All things are possible to him that believeth." (Mark 9:23) What is the one thing that God cannot do?
You make yourself up, you shame God. You show that you do not believe in God. God created you with everything you need. He made your skin to filter the sun. My face is not for sale. People may say I am ugly, but my face will please someone else. God made you what you are. Man wants a natural, real, not made-up woman.
We call ourselves Christians because we follow Jesus Christ our Lord. "How will the young man make his path clean? By following your word. (Psalm 119:9) "I will hold your word in my heart, that I may not sin against you." (Psalm 119:11) We must experience this Word in our own lives. "Your commandments are my delight; they are my counselors. (Psalm 119:24) The Word of God has the power to work in a person. "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever" (John 14:16) "And teach them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:20) "And if anyone takes away anything from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share from the tree of life and from the holy city, described in this book." (Revelation 22:19) The Word must be preserved in the way it was given by its Author.
The Word of God cannot please the human mind. Men have always been drawn to idolatry, even the people of Israel. There is a power in man that comes in opposition to the Word: it is a struggle. "When I want to do good, evil is attached to me. (Romans 7:21) In our human condition, we cannot love God. God is the Word. "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, the same is he that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and make myself known unto him." (John 14:21) When temptation came, the woman took fruit and then gave some to the man. Yet, they were supposed to stay on the Word.
We must come to be in another dimension. If we stay in this dimension, there will be no difference between believers and unbelievers. In Egypt, the believers put the blood on the lintels. After that, they went out of the country.
1 Corinthians 10:1-5
They saw and experienced the supernatural. God had not brought them out of Egypt to die in the desert. But God did speak of the seed of Abraham.
When Eve had her children: Cain and Abel. God spoke clearly to Cain and gave him a way out. Cain did not pray to a statue but to God. Don't comfort yourself in your thoughts, look at the fruit you bear. "But I treat my body harshly and hold it in subjection, lest I myself should be rejected, after I have preached to others." (1 Corinthians 9:27) The real opponent is you, your love for yourself. The old man is still there. When you obey God, you are blessed. But when you disobey God, you are cursed. You think God doesn't see, but you are already cursed.
Satan does not come with anything other than the Word, but with a devious word. When it is not 100% the Word, then it is not God. Never be a preacher or doctor of yourself. Satan injects you with thoughts that are not of God. We must have discernment. Just by the love of the Word, you can have discernment. "Moreover, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is worthy of approval, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy, let that be the object of your thoughts." (Phillipians 4:8) When you have evil thoughts against your brother, see where the source comes from! Satan is harming you and you are persevering in this. You are walking with Satan. What rapture are you going to go to?
God speaks to you from the flesh and when you go home, you say to yourself "no this is wrong". Satan is really cunning. If you don't have the Spirit of the Lord, then you will be in defeat. We fight against spirits. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of this dark world, against evil spirits in the heavenly places." (Ephesians 6:12) Demons are real, fallen spirits. Their job is to seduce you. When they succeed, they torment you. You can't sleep, you have no peace. We are in a fight. To have victory, we need to stay in the sanctification.
"Sanctify them with your truth: your word is truth. (John 17:17) If you live only with interpretations, how can you be sanctified? To accept Satan's lie, you must reject God's truth. "That they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us" (John 17:21). God knows what He is saying. I don't have to ask myself how, but simply to cast out and pray: "In my name they will cast out demons" (Mark 16:17). God is obliged by Himself to honor His Word, I only have to speak His Word. The Word only needs your faith to work.
After the fall, the devil took over man's nature. God had given power over all things, man was the master. Everything obeyed him, he had received authority from God. Adam was the Son of God. When he fell, God took over the title. Satan could not have it because the title had to stay in the family.
When evil came, it continued until the seed of the woman came. A son of God is special, he is not like others. The respect for God's work is different. "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding, and revealed them to children. (Matthew 11:25) The sons of the evil one are clever, see how they prosper, see the great churches. Eloquence has nothing to do with God. Satan speaks in a refined way. The children of God have the Word, that is, the Word of God.
God knows what He is doing. There is no book that can tell you the origin, works and end of Satan except the Bible. Let's take what God has given us. Why does Satan fight? "If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you. (John 15:7) I fight for the Word to be in me, so when I ask, I receive. God can't refuse you.
If you are a follower of Jesus, then you will truly love Him. You can't love the person without loving what the person is telling you. His words are like music, you take pleasure in it. Obedience is self-evident. Love of God produces obedience, mercy.
Let your houses be pure and sanctified, Satan can no longer have a place there. Let God come and dwell in me so that peace may be in me. "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. (John 14:27) If peace is in your soul, you have the solution over everything. Satan wants to put pressure but God gives peace. Take time for God, give time for God, He will handle the emergency, He will make the emergency wait!
Be firm and determined. It is the great Physician who holds your life in his hands. "You must be born again." (John 3:7) As long as you remain carnal, Satan has the right over you. You die with Jesus so Satan's work is done. When you are dead, Satan has no power over you.
"Do not be deceived: bad company corrupts good morals. (1 Corinthians 15:33) Our God is able.
