Reclaim that which is yours, Beloved. Believe My report. You are Mine through the new birth. You belong to no other.
You no longer reside in the kingdom of darkness, but have been translated into My Kingdom of Light.
The enemy is a usurper and a trespasser. He has no right to your mind, body or soul. You are a spirit. Your spirit has been made perfect. Rise up in faith, My Child.
Rise up in My Strength. My Strength is made perfect in your weakness. The devil has no legal claim to you, Dear One. I have redeemed you by my Blood.
Every charge that was against you was nailed to the Cross. Every debt has been cancelled once and for all time. I have disarmed the enemy and triumphed over him. You are a NEW creature with My DNA flowing through your veins.
No longer lie down and take what the enemy dishes out to you. He is a LIAR and the father of it.
I AM your Abba Father, your Daddy God. You are My Beloved and I AM yours. Watch and see what I shall do. Rise up in boldness, My Warrior Bride, and declare Whose you are.
Now then, stand still and see this great thing Yahweh is about to do before your eyes!”
Usurp: 1) to seize and hold by force or without legal right: 2) to use without authority or right.
“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him the whole fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily,” Colossians 2:6-9.
“And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This He set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in Him,” Colossians 2:13-15.
“Now then, stand still and see this great thing the LORD is about to do before your eyes!” 1 Samuel 12:16.
“Who has believed [confidently trusted in, relied on, and adhered to] our report? [message of salvation]
And to whom [if not us] has the arm and infinite power of the Lord been revealed?
For He [the Servant of God] grew up before Him like a tender shoot (plant), and like a root out of dry ground;
He has no stately form or majestic splendor that we would look at Him, nor [handsome] appearance that we would be attracted to Him.
He was despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and pain and acquainted with grief; and like One from whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or esteem Him.
But [in fact] He has borne our griefs, and He has carried our sorrows and pains; yet we [ignorantly] assumed that He was stricken, struck down by God and degraded and humiliated [by Him].
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]; the punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him, and by His stripes (wounds) we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, we have turned, each one, to his own way; but the Lord has caused the wickedness of us all [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing] to fall on Him [instead of us].
He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth [to complain or defend Himself]; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that is silent before her shearers, so He did not open His mouth.
After oppression and judgment He was taken away; and as for His generation [His contemporaries], who [among them] concerned himself with the fact that He was cut off from the land of the living [by His death] for the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke [of death] was due?
His grave was assigned with the wicked, but He was with a rich man in His death, because He had done no violence, nor was there any deceit in His mouth.
Yet the Lord was willing, to crush Him, causing Him to suffer; if He would give Himself as a guilt offering [an atonement for sin], He shall see His [spiritual] offspring, He shall prolong His days, and the will (good pleasure) of the Lord shall succeed and prosper in His hand.
As a result of the [g]anguish of His soul, He shall see it and be satisfied; by His knowledge [of what He has accomplished] the Righteous One, My Servant, shall justify the many [making them righteous — upright before God, in right standing with Him], for He shall bear [the responsibility for] their sins.
Therefore, I will divide and give Him a portion with the great [kings and rulers], and He shall divide the spoils with the mighty, because He [willingly] poured out His life to death, and was counted among the transgressors; yet He Himself bore and took away the sin of many, and interceded [with the Father] for the transgressors.” Isaiah 53.
