Happy Birthday to Jesus The Christ

This is the season that has been set aside to honor our God for sending Jesus The Christ (His Word made human) for the redemption and restoration of humanity, unto Himself.  

Let us not forget the purpose of this holiday.  It does not offend our God when we honor His Only Begotten.  Allowing ourselves to be consumed with worldly things and temporal pleasure; however, dishonors our God: He is the Source of Life.  He is the One that gives us breathe, who awakes us every morning, who provides for and protects us, if we only believe.  

May this be your greatest season ever.  If we find we do not have all that things or even people in our lives that we desire, let us take pleasure in having and belonging to our God.  He has made us this promise:

Psalm 37:3-5 (Amplified Bible) Trust [rely on and have confidence] in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and feed [securely] on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and petitions of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the Lord; Trust in Him also and He will do it.

Our God is able and willing to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to His Word and Holy Spirit power and authority working through us (Ephesians 3:20).

BE Blessed in the name of Jesus!

 

Soldiers of Grace, Do not Abdicate!

Our God is saying to us during the present day operation of His grace, “Do not abdicate under pressure!”  We must not resign nor retire from; stand down, step down, bow down or renounce the unfailing love, authority, power, and promises He has given us.  We are His offspring, His sons, who are one in and with Jesus The Christ!  No matter what appears, let us remember that this battle is already completely won.  Let us manifest the victory of Jesus The Christ, for all to see, and to the glory of God, our Heavenly Father! Hallelujah! 

Our God is saying His grace (His Loving help to be and do the impossible) is sufficient to educate, equip, and empower us.  We must  not allow faithlessness and passivity to hinder nor prevent us from fulfilling or taking up our responsibility of duty to stand in the power and authority of His promises and might!  We must not relinquish or abandon our God’s Truth because of the pressures of life, nor the deception of satan.  We must not quit, but utilize every gift and tool He has given us to do His will and rest in His promises.  We must steadfastly declare to satan, his cohorts, and their evil works, “IT IS WRITTEN;  OUR GOD HAS SAID; or IT IS FINISHED!”

In modern day vernacular, our God is saying when we have done His will, (according to His character, Word and Holy Spirit); we must patiently endure with every expectation of conquering and overthrowing evil, as we manifest our God’s will and glory in the earth.  Our God has promised that when we stay in the faith press, depending on His faithfulness, we will see the fulfillment of His promises.  He is saying to all who choose to believe, “I’ve got you!

LET US TRUST OUR GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY AND GRACE

We must not forget our God is sovereign and full of grace.  We must put Him in remembrance of His Word, then take on the heart of dependent children, earnestly watching and listening for heaven and earth to respond.  We have this blessed confidence in our God; after we have done His will, with trusting, humble heart, we can expect to see or hear heaven’s response:

1 John 5:14-15 (KJV) 14 And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us: 15 And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.

We must not forget our God’s modus operandi is to prepare us for His appointed assignment and journey, just as He did with Elijah and Moses.  Whether it is by the brook, eating from the mouth of a raven, or on the backside of the mountain tending someone else’s sheep, God is preparing each of us, according to our assignment and journey, as well as His purposes. 

OUR GOD CAUSES ALL THINGS TO WORK TOGETHER FOR OUR GOOD

Now, more than ever, let us say, as did the Apostle Paul “It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn my God’s statutes (Psalm 119:71).  May all pain and disappointment push us into the loving arms of our God, and make us desperate to know His way of doing things.  May all pain and disappointment keep us from self-righteousness and pride; may both drive us to depend on Him the more.  May we all come to understand as Apostle Peter did when he said to Jesus, “”Lord, to whom would I go?  You alone have the Words that give eternal life.” 

Beloved watchmen, may every soldier of God come to recognize (as did the early apostles) his /her status as a “slave and prisoner of Jesus Christ and His Gospel.”  May we understand as they did, it is not just for ourselves that we are slaves and prisoners, but also for those we pray for and minister to, whether by Word or living example.  Living this revelation is evidence of our conformation into the image of The Christ and the heart and plan of our Heavenly Father (Romans 8:28-29). 

ABDICATE FROM BELIEVING AND SERVING OUR GOD THROUGH JESUS THE CHRIST; NO WAY!

LET US ABDICATE FROM EVIL AND ITS WORK!

2 Timothy 2: 11-13 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with Him, we shall also live with Him: if we suffer, we shall also reign with Him: if we deny Him, He also will deny us: 13 If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful: He cannot deny Himself.  

Beloved watchmen, true Christians have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord; we have completely “abdicated” from the demonic doctrine that we are anything good because of ourselves.  We have completely “abdicated” from the demonic doctrine that any human or devil matches the knowledge, understanding, wisdom, power, and authority of our Sovereign, All-knowing, All-powerful, existing anywhere He chooses God.  We remain completely committed to the Truth that our God is the Only Righteous Judge, who cannot be overturned once He has spoken!  We understand the need to persevere until God speaks or gives new direction. 

We know our God is faithful, even when we and others are not! Abdicate; NO WAY!

LET US KEEP THE FAITH

1 Peter 1:6-7 (NLT) 6 So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. 7 These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.

The thought of Jesus rejoicing over our lives and service brings peace and joy in face of trial.  We must trust our God to walk us through our tests and trials.  We must trust Him to strengthen us in times when situations contradict our faith and His Word.  We must silence and manage our emotions, get quiet before our God, and ask for His help.  We must judge all we experience by the Standard of His character, Word and Holy Spirit.  He does not mind us doing so, in fact, He prefers and instructs us to do so! 

LET US SUFFER FOR CHRIST NOW TO REIGN WITH HIM AT HIS APPEARING

(1)   The crown of righteousness will be rewarded for believers who have prepared for the return of Jesus Christ and love the truth of His appearing. 

2 Timothy 4:8 “Finally, there is laid up for me the CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.”

(2)   The eternal crown of victory will be rewarded for believers who trust God’s Word, and understand the reason they live as they live (disciplined), knowing God will bless their lives eternally.

 1 Corinthians 9:25-27 (NKJV) Everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things.  Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore, I run thus: not with uncertainty.  Thus, I fight: not as one who beats the air.

(3)   The martyr’s crown will be rewarded to those who served patiently and faithfully through tests, trials, temptations, loss, and death.

 James 1:12 (NKJV) Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

(4)   The faithful leader’s crown will be rewarded to those who lead God’s people by His example, and cared for them as if it were Jesus Christ doing so.

1 Peter 5:2-4 (NLT) Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you.  Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly, not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.  Don’t lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example, and when the Great Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of never-ending glory and honor.

(5)   The soul winner’s crown will be rewarded to believers who won souls for Jesus Christ, through word and deed, through planting and watering. 

1 Thessalonians 2:19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing?  Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming?   

WE MUST ALLOW NOTHING NOR ANYONE TO CAUSE US TO ABDICATE OUR HIGH PLACE IN JESUS THE CHRIST!  WE MUST NOT ALLOW ANYONE TO TAKE OUR CROWN!

Revelation 3:10-13 (NLT) 10 “Because you have obeyed My command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world.  11 I am coming soon.   Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take away your crown.  12 All who are victorious will become pillars in the Temple of My God, and they will never have to leave it.  And I will write on them the name of My God, and they will be citizens in the city of My God—the New Jerusalem that comes down from heaven from  My God.  And I will also write on them My new name.  13 “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what He is saying to the churches.

LET US HONOR OUR GOD, BOTH NOW AND FOREVER MORE!

Revelation 4:9-11 (NLT) Whenever the living beings give glory and honor and thanks to the One sitting on the throne (the One who lives forever and ever), the twenty-four elders fall down and worship the One sitting on the throne (the One who lives forever and ever).  They lay their crowns before the throne and say, “You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and they exist because You created what You pleased.”

Beloved watchmen, we must join the 24 elders and cast down our crowns before our Heavenly Father and His Christ now!  Let us remember our God’s sovereignty and love, as revealed in Jesus Christ, our Savior, Lord and soon coming King.  Let us remember that our God’s Gospel of His Christ IS the very evidence of the operation of His Love and power of God unto salvation, deliverance, provision, peace, safety and everything we need.

BELOVED FATHER GOD,

We decree and declare over Your servants, “Sons of the Most-High God, because we seek our God’s face; because we are faithful in prayer and live upright before Him, Our God has rewarded us with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.  He has strengthened us with all power according to His glorious might so that we endure patiently and joyfully with a heart filled with gratitude.  He has qualified us to partake of the inheritance of the saints in His Kingdom of light for the blessing, and furtherance of the Gospel and His Church. He has given us dominion over all the works of darkness, and put all our enemies under our feet, in Jesus Christ.”

Father God, we are anxious for nothing, but by prayer with hearts full of gratitude, we bring the needs of Your people before You.  We thank You that Your peace, though unexplainable to the world, keeps our mind, will and emotions secure in the knowledge of Your love for us.  You are our Man of War and nothing can or will stand before You!  Do all that is in Your heart, in Jesus name I pray.  Abdicate; NO WAY!  This battle is already completely won in our Christ, armed with this revelation, we are manifesting the glory of our God in the earth. 

In Jesus name! Amen, and it is so!

 

Moving in the Greater Levels of Grace

From the View of His Watchman

Colossians 2:12 (KJV) Buried with Him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised Him from the dead.

This Scripture describes the work of our God in Jesus Christ, as He secured our salvation from eternal death and damnation (separation from Him and all He is).  This Scripture describes the operation of our God’s grace (Loving Help to be and do the impossible), working in behalf of all who believe in Jesus Christ, the First of His sons.  

Our God has Raised Us Up!

Ephesians 2:4-6 (KJV) 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.  (Ephesians 1:2-4).

We are indeed risen in Christ Jesus our Lord, Messiah, and coming King.  The Scripture clearly provides our God’s preordained method, given to us to successfully overcome, overthrow, and bring to nothing, the working of the evil and his kingdom (systems of operation):

Revelation 12:9-11 (KJV) Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

We who believe, successfully manifest Jesus The Christ’s already won victory over the works of evil by our confession, declaration, and decree of our God’s Word, character, authority and power, coupled with our faith in the power of Jesus’s shed blood and His Holy Spirit.  We manifest Christ’s victory, as we fearlessly face down satan’s threats of death, murder, theft, and destruction.  We agree and submit to the authority and Truth of our God, as we resist every aspect of the enemy of our souls and he is required by the Word of God, to take up all he has deposited in the lives of God’s people and get out! 

Watchmen all over the world, we must remember that our God has an assigned waiting place for every demon cast out of the lives of His people.  The kingdom of darkness is subject to our King, the Lord Jesus in all things; however, He has given us dominion over the earth and its contents and therefore, will not act until we do. We must not forget that Jesus Christ has unlocked humanity’s authority and power over the kingdom of darkness, as He tells us:

 Matthew 16:18-19 (KJV) 18 And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

We Must Count the Cost

Luke 14:27-28 (NIV) 27 Whoever does not carry their cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple.  28 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?

There is a cost to breathing the air up there in Christ our King.  The cost is dying to unrighteousness (rebellion against our God, pride and lust); the cost in living in earnest faith in our God, believing He is, has done, and will do all that He has promised. 

Our God would not have us ignorant of satan’s devices

Watchmen, the enemy of our souls does not want us to know the great reward, the great treasure that comes after we pass through our crucifixions, burials, resurrections, and ascensions; evil does not want us to become aware that we are firmly settled, establish, and seated in Christ, with full access to His ways and wisdom. 

1 Peter 5:8-11 (KJV) 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.  10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Watchmen, the enemy of our souls does not want us to know the fullness of our authority and dominion over the earth, its inhabitants, and contents (not other humans); he does not want us to embrace our absolute victory over him and all that has to do with him, as we sit heavenly places in our Christ.

Matthew 28:18-20 (AMPC) 18 Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, “All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the very close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).

Moving in the Greater Levels of our God’s Grace:

Romans 5:17 (NKJV) For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

Before our God manifested humanity’s victory over evil, through Jesus The Christ on Calvary’s cross, satan reigned (ruled) the lives of humanity through the threat of death, theft and destruction.  Before our God restored humanity’s authority in Jesus The Christ, satan reigned (ruled) through deception and manipulation.

Our God sent His Word in human form, Jesus The Christ, to restore all things to His original plan.  Through Jesus, we receive our God’s abundant grace and righteousness to reign (rule) over the earth, its contents, and our lives individually, as we all submit to His guidance and will. 

Watchmen, we must understand our ability to reign (have authority and rule) is given to us by our God’s grace, to be performed according to His righteousness.  The key to moving in greater levels of our God’s grace is just that, depending on His grace, while embracing His righteousness

His Grace + His Righteousness = His Authority and Power

The key that accesses our God’s grace to dwell in Christ and wield His Truth with His authority and power is living with a heart and mind to exemplify His righteousness in the earth.   Our abiding in the Seated Christ is an act of our God’s grace, according to our faith.  Our faith is evidenced by our willing obedience to examine our thinking, speaking, and behavior (our fruit), to determine if we are exemplifying our God or crucifying Christ afresh. 

Faith in the operation of our God’s grace plus a heart and mind to live righteously equals access and use of His authority and power!

Watchmen, let us press into our God’s grace by faith.  Let us depend on His Love, mercy, instruction and guidance.  Let us count the cost to live righteously, so that we make the most of breathing the air up there.  Let us make the most of being seated in heavenly places, rooted and established in the power and authority bestowed upon Jesus The Christ.  Let glorify our God in the earth, as we enforce Christ victory, pulling down the kingdom of darkness with faith, prayer, prayer, obedience, declaration, and decree. 

Most Beloved Heavenly Father,

Our prayer is simple; help us to count and pray the cost.  You have given us the victory; thank You for the grace to walk it out.  In Jesus name; amen and amen!

Our God’s Word is True and Unfolding Before Us

Romans 6:12-16 (NIV) 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. 13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.

15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! 16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

Watchmen all over the world, I recently had to separate myself from a very dear friend.  Though my friend would not acknowledge it, it became apparent that this beloved friend had entered into covenant with someone or something, and it was affecting his soul (thinking processes, ability to make autonomous choices, ability to control and monitor one’s emotions).  Our souls can only be kept in perfect peace by faith in and living by our God’s Word and His Holy Spirit’s loving help (grace).

THE CHANGES

My friend’s thought processes became skewed.  He began to justify wrong, throw up smoke screens of deception and launched a verbal attack when questioned about the changes in his personality.

My friend is generally someone capable of deep thought, discerning, and expression.  Sadly, this person was nowhere to be found.

I spoke truth to my friend and prayed for him; however, I discerned there will be no rescue until he acknowledges where he is and that what he is doing is unacceptable.  He was making the conscious decision to do whatever he was/is doing!

WE MUST TRUST OUR GOD

Our God says His desire is that all humanity come to the knowledge of His truth; He has already ransomed the lives of all who choose to believe.  

I choose to believe my friend will have a Road to Damascus experience and return to the God of his youth.  I trust our God and so should we all.

WE WILL FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH; IT IS ALREADY WON, IN JESUS NAME!

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.
