It’s so amazing when a scripture verse suddenly comes alive and becomes real to you.
Jeremiah 23:29 is that one verse for me right now:
“Is not My word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?”
My fire has been stoked and I’m celebrating the faithfulness of God’s word. Someone I’ve been praying with who I led to Christ about 2 weeks ago has just testified that the devil, who has been oppressing her and her family for over 3 years, is now under her feet. She is no longer afraid of him. Now born-again and filled with Holy Spirit (baptism of Holy Spirit only a few days ago), she has found her new IDENTITY in Christ. And she’s witnessing the power of prayer & the blood of Christ in her life. She’s discovering that the little minion that until only a few days ago has been terrorizing her family is indeed powerless against our Almighty God. She has found the Peace of God and now has undisturbed sleep. How good is God?!
Romans 16:20 “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.”
My friends, PRAYER is so POWERFUL! The blood of Jesus has never lost its power. The name of Jesus is forever supreme. The word of God is indeed the hammer that breaks every rock. Life and death is truly in the power of your tongue. I can rave, boast and testify about what God has done all day long!
You have absolute authority over Satan & his cohorts. If he comes against you, RISE UP and PUSH BACK without fear. He does not stand a chance when you know WHO you are in Christ and understand the weapons of warfare that you fight with.
We must continue to lead souls into the kingdom but we cannot leave them to fend for themselves. With soul-saving comes the responsibility to ensure that they are taught how to be free from the clutches of the enemy and how to remain free by teaching them the power of the word of God. We have to get them filled with the Spirit of power that raised Jesus from the dead.
“… the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.”
In addition, we also have a responsibility to equip them in how to become a powerful warrior in Christ and fight a good warfare (1 Timothy 1:18).
It’s time to raise up fearless warriors for the end-time army of Christ!
Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
