Time is getting shorter, time is no more, we are going home. We are not of this world, there is nothing that can hold us here. "I and my house will serve the Lord." (Joshua 24:15)
Our God never failed us. He was the cloud by night and the pillar of fire by day. He is always present. "For I would not have you ignorant of this mystery, brethren, lest you should think yourselves wise, that some of Israel have fallen into hardness, until the whole of the Gentiles have entered in." (Romans 11:25) He has turned His eyes to the nations. The election is sure and certain. He is waiting for the last one to enter.
We have passed from death to life. How do I know? You have the love of the brothers. "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature. The old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17) We cannot leave this world without this world noticing that there are strangers. The people of Israel were strangers in Egypt, that's why they were slaves. They were seen, they were different. "It will be an everlasting covenant that I will be your God and the God of your descendants after you. (Genesis 17:7) God is faithful.
I must examine myself: is God reflected in me? Others must say to themselves: "This one is not like the others! You must give off a fragrance. When you have Christ in you, you give off the fragrance of Christ. Without saying anything, you give off peace. Some without saying anything give off trouble. May the peace of God be with you. Wherever we go, we must bring peace. We cannot bring trouble.
When you are not in the sphere where the demons want, then it is anger. Your attitude of peace, of thinking good, it disturbs others.
We are to guard the land the Lord has given us. God had given Israel a people flowing with milk and honey. This was meant to make God's people happy.
When God places in the place He has provided, it is for joy. When the hearts of the people turned to foreign gods, the sky became a brazen sky. God did not give the land to idolaters. Satan will always try to get the people out of their place. Israel was led by God but they wanted to be like the other nations and have a king. God has ears and hears. He has eyes and He sees. He has a Mouth and He speaks. We don't realize the grace we have when God puts us in the position He wants. We always tend to look outside. Satan pushes you to that so you can get out. As long as Adam and Eve stayed in the Garden of Eden, there were no worries. But Satan came to push them out.
1 John 3:9-12
The devil is cunning but we have the wisdom of God. We must recognize the wiles of the devil. Satan will seek out a brother or sister to hurt you. Before you speak to your brother or sister, weigh your words! It boils in the heart and when you speak, you can kill the person. Satan keeps injecting thoughts into the head. When you are a son of God, it defiles your mouth and your heart. You have to think about what you are going to say. God has given you the ability to accept being stepped on. The greatness is to humble yourself. When you have pride, the devil is happy, he will manipulate you. You will answer the person, but you are already defeated. When you say nothing, you have the victory.
Evil spirits are there to destroy you. If that spirit is in the person and also in you, then it is just a fire of wickedness. Satan thinks he will destroy that which loves God. Never glorify Satan, glorify the Lord. When evil is done to you, always return the good. When you return evil, you become like him. You do the works of Satan. "Submit yourselves therefore to God; resist the devil, and he will flee from you." (James 4:7) When we are brothers in Christ, I know that my brother is a human, he may do an evil act but he is still my brother. "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) I am not fighting against my brother or sister but against demons. Often we confuse a lot. Love has power, if Christ rose from the grave, it is because of love. Love is a power and this power makes demons flee. God is love. "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." (Ephesians 6:11)
We are in battle, we take up arms. Jesus Christ Himself went to the front, He was the one who fought. God wants us to be truly armed and every day we must make sure that we have those weapons to go into battle.
Demons enter through lies, you swallow anything. "I know that thou canst not endure the wicked; that thou hast tried them that say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars" (Revelation 2:2) "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." (John 17:17) In the mouth of Satan, there is only lie. Always be right in everything you do. You can't have two scales. We need to be zealous that is, patience and love. "For the zeal of your house consumes me" (Psalm 69:9) "My house shall be called a house of prayer." (Matthew 21:13) There can be no such thing as not being in conformity. When your shield is not there, you cannot protect yourself from the enemy. With faith, everything comes up.
