Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

 The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn’t fight fair. But we don’t live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.2 Corinthians 10:3-6 (MSG)

 Praise is a very effective weapon against the enemy of God. When you’ve done all that you know to do and don’t know what else you can do, give a shout of praise unto Abba Father, with thanksgiving in Jesus’ name, for it’s already done. In other words, thank, thank, and keep thanking God. For such is evidence of faith in God’s faithfulness toward us; and thwarts the fiery darts of the enemy. The thief who comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10) is only able to take from those reconciled unto Abba Father by the blood of Jesus that which is given over (whether intentionally or not) by what is allowed out of the mouth-gate because the Lord Jesus disarmed the devil and his cohorts “and made a spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the crossColossians 2:15 (NIV). Therefore, we guard against admitting or speaking a doubt that pave the way for fear, which are both cohorts of the devil, into our thoughts. For it is by the WORD that those with a spirit re-created or reborn by the Blood know to immediately cast down every thought and imagination contrary to the way of GOD (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).

 Plainly put, the enemy is a defeated foe, a toothless Lion; and through revelation by the Holy Spirit of the information in 1 Corinthians 10:13, we may know that Satan is forbidden to use previous experience as a heavenly being (Isaiah 14:12-15; Luke 10:18) against us outside of the realm of humanity. For GOD Who is ever faithful always provides the way of escape. Hence, those reconciled unto the Family of God by the Blood are strongly advised to put on the whole armor of God daily because the enemy doesn’t come against us once or twice per week but is a relentless prowler (1 Peter 5:8). Hence, we are to keep at the ready “the sword of the Spirit which is the word of GodEphesians 6:17b. Those rendered sons & daughters of GOD by the Blood are strongly advised to “become so Word of God-minded” that we endeavor to respond in every situation by what God has said. The will of Abba Father for the lives of all mankind is delineated in His Word, and Christ Jesus is “the Revealer and Mediator of that will1Th 5:18  (AMP).

 Therefore, we fix or keep our eyes on Jesus Who is the author and finisher (perfecter) or through Whom our faith is developed from start to finish (Hebrews 12:2).  For we who are in Christ and seated with Him (Ephesians 2:6) are ambassadors of Christ. Hence, we are equipped to succeed in our God given assignment(s) when  we speak and do in the way exemplified by the One Who only spoke and did in the way of Abba Father (John 5:19; 8:26b,28,38; 12:49-50; 14:10). Only GOD knows our thoughts whereas the thief attempts to plant negative thoughts; and if there is scant awareness of such, the temptation is to act upon that negative thought. Further, ‘though the fiery darts of the devil may at times be subtle, the very second of consciousness or awareness that a particular thought isn’t of GOD, is the precise moment in which we speak the WORD and/or exercise the sacred ministry-of-authority given in the Name above all names. Therefore, since the enemy of those rendered children of GOD by the Blood doesn’t actually know our thoughts, we may laugh out loud regardless. Shout with a voice of triumph. Shout with a voice of praise. For the accuser of the brethren is defeated. We praise GOD’s Holy Name. Hallelujah! Thine the glory. Hallelujah! Amen.

 Speak the promise . . . Harriet
