The Apostle Paul said some things of great interest in 1 Corinthians 16:9. ”For a WIDE DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY for Effectual (service) HAS OPENED to me (there, a Great and Promising one), and
THERE ARE MANY ADVERSARIES.”
Paul did see that the Door Was Open, yet he did state that even in this OPEN DOOR, there was MANY ADVERSARIES. An Adversaries is one or a group, or Force that opposes or attacks; an opponent; an enemy; a FOE. Paul did SEE THE DOOR and even said He was STAYING TO ENTER IT… but told the Corinthians there were ALREADY MANY ADVERSARIES. He did mention them only to acknowledge that he knew it and to seek others to pray with him and to stand in support of him, that He would RAISE VICTORIOUS OVER THEM ALL.
A New Year has begun now and I SEE AN OPEN DOOR. Like Paul I SEE IT; it is very plain before me, yet I do now tell you there are MANY ADVERSARIES. That is very Evident. The enemy has moved to try to HALT THE WORK; TO STOP IT ALTOGETHER. He does not want us to WALK THROUGH THAT OPEN DOOR!
Although the enemy is working OVERTIME… He will not be able to Stop the Work for those who REFUSE TO BE HINDERED. That is what I said…
FOR THOSE WHO REFUSE TO BE HINDERED. You CAN and you WILL the MOMENT YOU WALK IN THE FINISHED WORK AND AUTHORITY OF CHRIST JESUS!!!
Many here reading this Note are CALLED TO A SPECIAL WORK FOR GOD. You KNOW what that Calling is because you have not only heard the Lord speaking it to you, but you have had dreams and even visions showing you his way. You have a PEACE in your heart and a KNOWLEDGE of what God is doing because you have been staying with him in the Secret Place and have heard his Plan. There is NO DOUBT in your mind as to what God has said, YET NOW… THE ADVERSARY HAS ENTERED THE PICTURE. Even at the beginning of 2013 you have seen the enemy walking tall. You have already experienced his attack.
BUT THIS IS NO REASON TO DESPAIR.
For every attack the enemy does plan, and every event unfolding of his most dark and evil schemes, you KNOW one thing…
IF GOD BE FOR ME… THAN WHO CAN BE AGAINST ME? (Romans 8:31b)
***((( AND HE IS!!! )))***
The fact that the Apostle Paul did mention the enemy by saying, THERE ARE MANY ADVERSARIES, does not mean that Paul was Worried, or even doubtful. He only spoke it to reveal that HE KNEW THEY WERE THERE… AND HE KNEW THE ENEMY WOULD RESIST THE PERFECT PLAN OF GOD. He did as well note it to ENCOURAGE ALL TO PRAY FOR AND WITH HIM AGAINST THIS ENEMY ARMY OF ADVERSARIES.
Brethren we have been given GREAT SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS IN HIGH PLACES! We have INHERITED ALL BLESSINGS IN HEAVENLY PLACES, IN CHRIST JESUS! The Scripture tells us that we have:
EPHESIANS 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST JESUS:”
Not only have we been brought into an ACCEPTABLE PLACE with Jesus Christ, and now we are the Sons of the Most High God…. HE HAS GIVEN US ALL… (SAY ALL!!) SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS.
Now what part of that have you not heard? ALL.. ALL.. ALL.. A A A A A A A YOU ARE A…STRAIGHT A STUDENT/S.. You are ALL BLESSED WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS… IN CHRIST JESUS!
So what in the world is there to Worry about when an enemy and many ADVERSARIES SHOW UP????
I now will read what else we read in Ephesians 1:
“19. And what is the exceeding greatness of His Power to US WARD WHO BELIEVE, according to the working of his mighty power.
20. Which he wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead, and SET HIM AT HIS OWN RIGHT HAND IN HEAVENLY PLACES.
21. Far ABOVE ALL PRINCIPALITY, AND POWER, AND MIGHT, AND DOMINION, AND EVERY NAME THAT IS NAMED, not only in this World… but also.. IN THAT WHICH IS TO COME.
22.And hath (Present Tense… HAS) put ALL THINGS under his Feet, and gave him to be the head over ALL THINGS TO THE CHURCH.
23. Which is his body, THE FULLNESS OF HIM THAT FILLETH ALL IN ALL.”
Continuing now in Chapter 2:6 I read:
“6. And hath (Present Tense HAS) RAISED US UP TOGETHER and made us SIT TOGETHER …… IN…
HEAVENLY PLACES…. IN CHRIST JESUS.”
Brethren and Sisters… in Jesus Christ. WE ARE SEATED WITH HIM IN HEAVENLY PLACES. And that Place is FAR ABOVE ALL POWERS OF ANY eMEMY…or aDVERSARIE … YES SAY IT! ANY eNEMY or ANY aDVERSARIE
NOTICE AGAIN AND SAY IT…… ***ANY… eNEMY/S OR aDVERSARIES!!! (I did PURPOSELY NOT EVEN CAPITALIZE THEIR TITLES.. because in the Knowledge of the revealed POWER OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS… they are NOTHING!!! EVEN LESS THAN .. . ***NOTHING!!!
Now since we KNOW THIS, than we MUST ACT UPON THIS, AND BELIEVE. Believe that we are BLESSED, and not only Blessed we are SEATED IN POWER AND AUTHORITY… WITH JESUS CHRIST over ALL adversaries.
THEY ARE DEFEATED DEVILS WHO HAVE NOTHING TO FIGHT US WITH!! Though they be ignorant enough to continue this fight (which is already lost in Jesus Christ when He raised from the dead and defeated his enemies) they are ALREADY DEFEATED.
Paul knew this. But… I point out that HE DID MENTION THE aDVERSARIES and that they were MANY! WHY? Because He knew that HE HAD TO WALK ON THE FAITH THAT JESUS CHRIST HAD DEFEATED THEM.
Paul and We ALSO, MUST…. ABSOLUTELY MUST… WALK TALL FOR JESUS CHRIST, not in OUR POWER OR EVEN THOUGHTS.. but.. IN JESUS POWER AND AUTHORITY. This will of NECESSITY be a DELIBERATE CHOICE AND EVEN PROFESSION. We MUST… SPEAK OUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST THE RISEN SAVIOR OVER ALL ENEMIES… AND IN SPEAKING FAITH IN HIS AUTHORITY THAN….. ***WALK IN THAT AUTHORITY!
ALL aDVERSARIES WILL ….. ***(((RUN AWAY WITH THEIR TAIL BETWEEN THEIR LEGS… BARKING LIKE THE DOG/S THEY ARE!))).
I leave you this FINAL CONFIRMATION:
JAMES 4:7 “SUBMIT YOURSELVES THEREFORE TO GOD, ……***(((RESIST THE DEVIL))), AND…. HE WILL ***((( FLEE OR RUN )))… FROM
***((( YOU ))).
