RISE UP WATCHMEN, ENFORCE THE VICTORY OF OUR CHRIST

WE MUST BELIEVE: 

Watchmen all over the world, we know the tactic of the enemy of our souls is to oppress, or give and maintain pressure in the life of the believer, until one grows weary, gives up or in, and quits believing in our God and His ability to protect and provide for His own.   The kingdom of darkness is not concerned when we simply believe God exists.  All of evil is terrified when we please our God; we please Him by agreeing with Him and embracing His Truth that He is exactly who He says He is, and that He is willing and well able to keep His promises:

Hebrews 11:6 (CJB) Without trusting (faith), it is impossible to be well pleasing to God, because whoever approaches him must trust that he does exist and that he becomes a Rewarder to those who seek him out.

WE HAVE OUR GOD’S PROMISE:

When WE decide and agree that our God’s Word is the Ultimate Truth, that He is the Ultimate Teacher, and that He teaches through His Word (Scripture and Jesus The Christ), under the guidance, instruction, power, and authority of His Holy Spirit, revelation begins to flow into and out of our innermost being (our spirit) like running water:

John 7:37-39 (NASB) 37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” 39 But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

WE HAVE THE GOOD NEWS, THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST:

Our God explains His Person, His character, heart, mind, purpose, and plan towards humanity through the Person of Jesus Christ; This IS the Gospel, the Good News that all the world is dying to hear:

Hebrews 1:1-3 (AMPC) 1 In many separate revelations (each of which set forth a portion of the Truth) and in different ways God spoke of old to [our] forefathers in and by the prophets, 2 But in the last of these days He has spoken to us in the person of a Son, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things, also by and through Whom He created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time (He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order).  3 He is the sole expression of the glory of God (the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the Divine), and He is the perfect imprint and very image of God’s nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty WORD of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high.

Jesus Christ lived, ministered and died, giving His sinless human life as full payment for the sin-stricken lives of all who choose to believe.  Led by the Word and Holy Spirit of our God He arose from death, the grave, and hell.  Jesus fully and completely conquered ALL the works and maneuvering of satan and his kingdom of deception:

Colossians 2:9-15 (NIV) 9 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 10 and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the Head over every power and authority. 11 In Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self-ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, 12 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised with Him through your faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.

13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; He has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

WE HAVE OUR GOD’S GOAL AND PURPOSE:

Watchmen all over the world, let us remind ourselves continually that our lives are hidden in Jesus Christ, and that our God’s goal and purpose is that we come into the revelation knowledge of who we are and what He designed us to do (as He has revealed in Jesus The Christ, our Savior, Lord, Messiah, and coming King):

Romans 8:28-29 (AMPC) 28 We are assured and know that God (being a partner in their labor) all things work together and are fitting into a plan for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew, of whom He was aware and loved beforehand, He also destined from the beginning, foreordaining them to be molded into the image of His Son and share inwardly His likeness that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.

Our God has declared that the name of Jesus carries His Sovereign authority and power, far above every name that is named.  He has provided us with the same access to all He is, just as He did with His Great Example, Jesus The Christ, by His shed blood and power-filled name.  Our God fully defeated all wickedness and placed the victory in our hearts, mouths and hands. 

Let us stand together and work the works of Jesus, in the appointed greater measures.  Let us stand together in faith and enforce the manifestation of the end of demonic and fleshly oppression.  Let us stand together, armed with the Word of our God, backed by His Holy Spirit and the heavenly hosts.  Let us stand together, knowing that our Conqueror, Jesus The Christ, Himself sits as the Right-hand human of our God, interceding for us! Let us stand together, knowing our lives are hidden in Him, and we already have the total victory!

Hallelujah!

WE HAVE OUR METHOD:

Matthew 18:18-20 (AMPC) 18 Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven.

19 Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever (anything and everything) they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in My name, there I AM in the midst of them.

Watchmen all over the world, we must continue to agree with our God and one another, as we stand as one against the deception of the kingdom of darkness.  Let us pull down the deception of the enemy of our souls, and expose his works with the Light of our God’s Word!

WE HAVE OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

Acts 10:36-38 (AMPC) 36 You know the contents of the message which He sent to Israel, announcing the good news (Gospel) of peace by Jesus Christ, Who is Lord of all. 37 The same message which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, starting from Galilee after the baptism preached by John. 38 How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and, in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by the power of the devil, for God was with Him.

Watchmen all over the world, let us follow the Writer and Implementer of our faith in our God (Hebrews 12:2).  Let us walk out this faith life, while keeping Him in plain sight.  Let us wield the Word of our God, understanding we are only who we are because of Him.  Let us recognize and embrace Jesus The Christ’s total victory and enforce the end of the oppression of our God’s people, in Jesus name, by His Holy Spirit. 

FATHER GOD,

Thank You for increasing our faith and fortitude.  Thank You that we can walk in Your resolve and resilience.  We, Your watchmen, stand together declaring “We are well able to take these mountains for our God and HIS Christ!”  Anoint us the more and thank You for allowing us to see the downfall of our enemies, for Your name sake.  Be it unto us as You have said. In Jesus name we pray.  Amen and amen.
