Let this be your battle cry, My Warrior Bride. “For me, to live is Christ.” There is no Name higher. There is no Power greater. There is no Love that surpasses. There is no Weapon mightier. There is no Word so unfailing. There is no Spirit more comforting. There is no Fire hotter. There is no Taste sweeter. There is no Compassion so tender. There is no Life so abundant. There is no Light brighter. There is no Kindness so merciful. There is no Grace so amazing. There is no Faithfulness so true. There is no Peace more heavenly. There is no Salvation so complete.
When the devil whispers in your ears that things are hopeless, send him to your Savior and Elder Brother. Point him to your Abba Father. Speak My Name, Dear One. At My name, EVERY KNEE MUST BOW.
There is NO weapon formed against you, Beloved, that can prosper. So stand and LIVE by faith in the Son of God. For you are MORE than a conqueror through Him who loves you.
“Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father,” Philippians 2:8-11.
“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain,” Philippians 1:21.
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me,” Galatians 2:20.
“Let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead — BY THIS NAME this man stands here before you healed,” Acts 4:10.
“By myself I have sworn, My mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before Me every knee will bow; by Me every tongue will swear,” Isaiah 45:23.
“For He did not subject to angels the world to come, concerning which we are speaking. But one has testified somewhere, saying, ‘What is man, that Thou rememberest Him? Or the Son of Man, that Thou are concerned about Him?” Thou hast made Him for a little while lower than the angels; Thou hast crowned Him with glory and honor, and hath appointed Him over the works of Thy hands; Thou has put all things in subjection under His feet.’ For in subjecting all things to Him, He left nothing that is not subject to Him. But now we do not yet see all things subjected to Him. But we do see Him who has been made for a little while lower than the angels, namely Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone. For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, and bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings. For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying, ‘I will proclaim thy name to my brethren, in the midst of the congregation I will sing Thy praise.’ And again, ‘I will put my trust in Him.’ And again, ‘Behold, I and the children whom God has given Me.’ Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might deliver those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendents of Abraham. Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted,” Hebrews 2:5-18.
