A time of testing is at hand in the Body of Christ. I value your input as you learn, but when you are being tested I would rather find that you simply, trust.
Don’t question, but search My Word for the right scripture to speak to your mountain. For My tests are not to try your patience, but for you to try your skills–what you have learned is to be applied, and then you will know…
You will know.
For he that has ‘passed’ smiles in triumph upon his enemies. At this, I would have you to remember that your enemies are not flesh and blood, but principalities and powers of darkness.
Lay them down with My Word.
Slay them with what you know and, if you don’t know, then learn some more. For there is a testing for My body. I need you to prove My Word.
It is sharper than any two-edged sword. It is your weapon of warfare–your weapon of choice. And in the time of test, prove yourself faithful. For you are not trying My Word, but My Word will try you.
Find what you know
Be Full of Faith!
“Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal which comes upon you to prove you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in so far as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.” I Peter 4:12-13
“For this slight momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, because we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” II Corinthians 4:17-18
“He disarmed the principalities and powers and made a public example of them, triumphing over them in him.” Col. 2:15
“Since we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we too believe, and so we speak.” II Corinthians 4:13
“Put to death therefore what is earthly in you; immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you once walked, when you lived in them. But now put them all away; anger, wrath, malice, slander and foul talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old nature with its practices and have put on the new nature, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.” Colossians 3:1-10
“Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. Resit him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen you. To him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 5:8-11
“–Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; above all taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:10-17
“Be watchful, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” I Cor. 16:13
I need an app that will auto “Like” your posts. Each one is anointed! 🙂
I’ve been feeling like I am in this season and I had a word for someone else about the same thing.
Thank you for the confirmation and encouragement!
May I say Amen to the app? Tonight my A.D.D. is in full swing I am writing three different poems at the same time! Someday I will be able to buy a new IMAC. Then I can work on all three poems at the same time and read emails/ blogs!!
