I heard, “I AM Doing Great Things for You.”
A lot of people have broken through. There is a tremendous amount of God’s power in and through us to which many are experience right now.
Yes, there is such a thing as spiritual warfare. Yesterday we saw some beautiful truths about our total forgiveness in the thirteenth verse of the second chapter of The Book of Colossians.
Now there is something powerful in the fourteenth verse of the same chapter. We are told;
“Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross,”Colossians 2:14.
Wow, that you may see this. It says Jesus blotted out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us.
What is that handwriting that you think is speaking against you?
What is that Law that you are told is speaking against you?
All the curses of our disobedience to God’s Law which were to be the root of all curses, all sicknesses, and all evil on us were blotted out by our LORD Jesus.
Hear what the next part says which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; every thing contrary to us Jesus took it out of the way and nailed to the cross of Calvary.
If there is something like a curse in the way of your blessings then it is from your mind and not from God. He took every ordinance that was supposed to be against us out of the way and nailed it to the cross and declared that the battle is won. It is finished!
Now see what the next verse says;
“And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross,”Colossians 2:15 NIV.
Oh he is not going to disarm the powers and authorities but he has already disarmed the devil. It all depends on where you are standing and looking at things. The above scripture renders Satan and his cohorts just as toothless dogs.
Look at it in the Amplified Bible version;
“[God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross],” Colossians 2:15 AMP.
Every power that was ranged against us is already disarmed. They are not killed but disarmed. Just like in the movies, if the one with the gun is disarmed and the other has a gun, we all know that the one with the gun has the victory already.
They can talk you out of shooting and make you drop your gun to wallow in their shame and defeat. They can talk but can’t do. They can only make you do. How? As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
They make you think you are cursed, rejected, worthless, you will never be healed, never be prosperous, your marriage has already fallen, your ministry will not rise, you will end up in shame, your loved ones won’t be saved.
As you take these thoughts as your own, you empower principalities and powers. All these are some of the lies. This is why the enemy is called a liar.
Then the eighteenth and nineteenth verse says;
“Let no one defraud you by acting as an umpire and declaring you unworthy and disqualifying you for the prize, insisting on self-abasement and worship of angels, taking his stand on visions [he claims] he has seen, vainly puffed up by his sensuous notions and inflated by his unspiritual thoughts and fleshly conceit, and not holding fast to the Head, from Whom the entire body, supplied and knit together by means of its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God,”Colossians 2:19-19 AMP.
Carefully observe this first part of the verse. Let no one defraud you by acting as an umpire and declaring you unworthy and disqualifying you for the prize
We are not disqualified. We are armed and the devil is just a noise maker when you believe these verses.
Now if the devil is disarmed and we are armed, then we need to understand our armory which is what we will look at tomorrow…
In an encounter with the LORD; I saw a Christian who was in a very tight corner. She was in The Will of God, running on with vision.
I saw her in a situation where they needed to advance with the work but she was lacking the provision for the advancement.
Then I saw The LORD come and say unto her, “I AM doing something…”
I was led by the Spirit to;
“Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things,”Joel 2:21.
Then the LORD said, “Do not be afraid, be glad and rejoice for I AM doing great things for you.”
Blessings in Christ,
