Happy New Year!!!!
This is going to be a great year, I believe this, last year was a tough one for Jenny and I, but we are still standing and full of vision, with a passion to pursue.
I wanted to go into 2019 looking at Isaiah 54:17, and some key points for us today from this verse. How many of us had declared, “No weapon formed against shall prosper!” I would say all of us, yes? So what are we saying when we declare this and what does this scripture hold for each one of us today?
Isaiah 54:17 (NKJV)
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue, which rises against you in judgment, You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.
No weapon Formed
A weapon is a tool, or an item used to bring the downfall of an adversary, to bring harm, destruction, or misunderstanding.
To understand how our enemy Satan operates, gives us an advantage over his works against us.
Satan in the Hebrew means Accuser and we know that from Revelation 12:10 (Amp). So Satan, the Accuser, brings accusations against us and his master plan is to sew lies, as know he is the father of lies and there is no truth in him John 8:44.
We see lies, or propaganda across media, politics, advertising and marketing, the list goes on. In the New King James Study Bible is makes reference to Satan using propaganda against the church. Satan uses these tools (Media) to make changes in our belief, look at Adam and Eve..”did God Say… surely He didn’t really mean that”. He used propaganda to change the thinking of Adam and Eve, questioning the very things God had said, resulting in sin and regret.
So what is Propaganda?
Propaganda is information that is not objective and is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented.
Well having looked at this in a little detail, we have a number of issues:
1. We know the kind of weapons Satan uses now = Propaganda, Lies and Accusations
2. A weapon needs to be formed, this takes time, in the Hebrew formed means to squeeze or mould into shape
So Satan’s objective over time is to make you think something that is contrary to what God has said, to take you away from the purposes of God for your life, yet God has made a statement here in Isaiah, “No weapon formed against you will prosper”.
So we could say, no lie, propaganda, deceit or corruption that tries to slowly develop over time, that will take you outside of the victory God has planned for you, it will prosper.
An understanding of the way in which an enemy operates in any battle, gives you the upper hand, allowing counter measures to defend and then make your own attack on the enemy.
I don’t know about you but this is exciting to me, as it gives us power in our hands and insights against our enemy. This is so powerful as it is total victory placed at our disposal.
The next few months, we will dig further into this scripture. Looking at who has the upper hand, what our rights are and how to apply our rights in every battle.
I really hope we have wet your appetite and I look forward to sharing more with you next time.
