Today I heard the Spirit say, “My People are defeated, because they have believed that the battle that is raging is an earthly one and not a spiritual one.
My People are defeated because they have believed that the war is against flesh and blood and not against the powers and principalities of darkness.
My People are defeated because they have turned against one another with the very power and authority that I have given them to destroy the works of the enemy and his cohorts.
YES! My People are defeated because they have sown to the flesh and not to the Spirit; they have refused to humble themselves under My Mighty Hand and therefore I have had to resist them.
My People have been defeated because they have taken their eyes off of their Master and put their eyes rather on Man, and in battle they have leaned heavily on the arm of the flesh and they have counted their horses and chariots.
My People have been defeated because they have reasoned with their own understanding and they have run after the wisdom and ways of this World.
My People have been defeated because they have become lovers of themselves and not lovers of the Truth that will set them free and deliver them from the snare of the enemy.
Oh how My Heart is grieved for My People! Ha!
I tell you the truth, My People have been defeated because they have set up idols of their own imagination and their dark fantasies have entrapped them.
They have chosen to believe and take comfort in the Words of mere Men over the Words of My Beloved Son!
Oh how My people are perishing!
Again I say, My People have been defeated for they have made Religion more important than Relationship, and the secret place has taken last place and the works of sensationalism have been exalted high above the humble Works of the Supernatural.
My People have been defeated, because they have made room for a Rebellious Spirit embracing the powers of compromise and passivity instead of being empowered through a life of true Surrender and Submission to My Holy Spirit.
Oh how My People have been defeated by the lies of the great deceiver!
Awake! Awake My Beloved and take Me at My Word and watch as My Victory is made manifest in the midst of you.
How My Heart cries for those who have been defeated, because they have chosen to walk the broad path that leads to death, over the narrow path that leads to a life of abundance and beauty.
How My Heart longs for My People to walk in the paths of victory, that the Blood of My Son has paved for them!
Oh you of little faith, how much longer do you desire to walk around this mountain of defeat? When My Covenant has entitled you to a land flowing with milk and honey?” says God.
Blessings to you all.
