HAPPINESS IS KNOWING… Christ has paid the ultimate price: It is Finished!

Christ has already paid the ultimate price! We are more than conquerors through him who loves us (Romans 8:37). There is no need to despair, but to trust him!

 As a believer in Christ, God says to you as He said to Israel “I have loved you with an everlasting love and with loving kindness I have drawn you to me” (Jer 31:3).
Are you going through anything now? Sometimes our afflictions seem endless, but as God spoke through the prophet Isaiah to comfort Jerusalem, his precious city, so too I bring this word of comfort to you, His precious one “your

“…warfare is accomplished,..iniquity is pardoned…Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: and the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see [it] together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].” (Isaiah 40:2,4,5 KJV).

Yes, the afflictions of a believer are only temporarily and God intends for His glory to be revealed in our lives, so indeed if we suffer there is an ultimate purpose for the glory of God. 

When Jesus said on the CROSS “it is finished” (John 19:30) that is exactly what he meant! When he died for our sins and rose again the third day, our warfare was declared over. 

We only need to take hold of this truth and keep it at the forefront of our minds. We need not fret as long as we live in obedience to God’s Word. This is because God will always thwart the plans of the enemy, counteract the will of Satan and work all things out for our GOOD! (Psalm 33:10-12/Romans 8:28) To God be the glory great things He has done!!

You Are An Overcomer

I declare over your life today that
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This [is] the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness [is] of me, saith the LORD” (Is. 54:17 KJV).

What is a declaration? It is a formal, explicit statement or pronunciation or proclamation. The bible says God’s word is forever settled (Psalm 119:89). Therefore this declaration or statement (Is. 54:17) regarding God’s protection of you because you are His is settled! Just receive it and meditate over it, read it out loud, sing it over yourself because your God who wars on your behalf, delights in you and sings over you!
“The Lord your God is with you,the Mighty Warrior who saves.He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you,but will rejoice over you with singing” (Zeph. 3:17 NIV).

To God be the glory great things He has done!

The Lord says to you as He did to the children of Israel, this is your heritage:

1.”No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper…”

What is a weapon in this context? Anything that Satan uses to attack God’s people is a weapon. These include:

i.Objects such as talismans, voodoo dolls and amulets used in witchcraft and the occult.

ii.Human agents (by action or words)

-An individual, even a friend or family member, serving as an agent

-Satanic cults, witchcraft covens that engage in satanic séances, incantations

-A group of people, who could be a group of friends or a group of family members serving as satan’s agents.

Some people whether they are in the church or outside of it do not even realise they are being used as weapons. As we abide in Christ and He in us, our prayer is that we will strong in the LORD and in the power of His might so that we are not used by Satan and his demons.

If the weapons used against you do not prosper it is also true that the works or outcome of those diabolical weapons if they manage to manifest at all are powerless against you by almighty God. This is because you have the authority through Christ Jesus to withstand them. Jesus spoke of the fact that Satan has been defeated and that he has empowered his disciples which you are today:

“And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.19Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:18-19 KJV).

 “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”(Romans 8:37KJV)
Satan’s weapons and their works cannot stand or prosper because you are in right standing with God (righteous) and prospering in Him.

“2Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.(3 John 1:2 KJV)

Will you grasp these truths if you have not already and walk in the freedom that is your heritage as a child of God? If you have already done so it is time to be even more vigilant as you prepare to enter into the new year!
2.”…every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn..”

As one empowered by the Holy Spirit you are a powerful weapon in God’s hand for you have the power to condemn the enemy who attempts to condemn you!
1[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.(Romans 8:1-2 KJV).
As one who is righteous, empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit who makes intercession for you and through you according to the will of God, your earnest prayers “has great power and produces wonderful results” (NLT). Just take a moment to reflect on that!
Words released out of someone’s mouth a “Human satanic weapon”, which has condemned you, given you a negative picture of who you are and resulted in a sustained low self esteem even since your childhood are powerless once you come to Christ. Why? Because God’s words are the most powerful words which counteract, reverse and thwart the words that have been spoken against you since birth.
As you meditate on the word of God and declare it out loud as one in fellowship with the Holy Spirit who is the power of God,
-the voice of God is released in the atmosphere in all its power

-the testimony of Jesus (who is the Word of God) is made manifest.

Satan and his demons have no choice but to flee from the life of one who lives in the presence of God. This is because as a weapon and a mouthpiece of the almighty God, you are His “Battle Axe” (Jer. 51:20) or an instrument of His anointed voice and Holy Spirit that breaks demonic yoke and bondages.
 4The voice of the LORD [is] powerful; the voice of the LORD [is] full of majesty.5The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.(Psalm 29: 4-5 KJV)

 20Thou [art] my battle axe [and] weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;21And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider;…(Jer. 51:20-21 KJV)

If you believe that God’s words come to pass (Isaiah 55:10-12), then it means you also believe that they replace and so withstand the words of the enemy against you. This is what Jesus came to do, to engage in a divine exchange. When he died on the cross, he took on every curse, the written and spoken ordinances against you.

“14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;15[And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it ”(Col 1:14-15 KJV).

This is why it is important to meditate on God’s Word (the bible) over and over again and to declare them out loud. In so doing your heart (your innermost being of moral activity, your soul) comes in agreement with God’s word of truth, His predestined identity and destiny for you. There is therefore a renewal of mind and so an exchange of the lies and false presumptuous about life and who you are.

Every plan or scheme of satan through his “principalities, powers and the rulers of the dark world, spiritual wickedness” (KJV) is thwarted by almighty God who is the LORD of the heavenly armies (angels) in Jesus’ mighty name!

Brethren, let us therefore continue to be steadfast in abiding in God through our Lord Jesus Christ because in so doing, we allow God through His Word and by His power to condemn and render null and void all of Satan’s weapons, schemes and plans against us.

Thus living a life that daily bears witness to the LORD “who bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.11 The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations” (Psalm 33:10-11 KJV).

 Blessed are you “whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance” (Psalm 33:12 KJV).

 You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!

The Warrior & his Weapon

James Naughtie, BBC Journalist reported on 7th January that Donald Trump’s “weapon of choice, forged for him like a legendary warrior’s sword in the furnace of the new technology, is Twitter”I take this opportunity to remind us, Remnants, Warriors of the Most High God that the “Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God” is our “Sharper than a two-edged sword” weapon of choice, flawless as 
“6..silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.” (Psa.12:6 KJV) 

in addition, I decree and declare that 

“no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!” (Isaiah 54:17 NLT)
  In Jesus’ Mighty Name Amen!!

PRAYER ROOM: Commanding the Morning & Day Spring JOB 38:12-25 (KJV)

EARLY MORNING PRAYER & DECLARATION BASED ON 
JOB 38:12-25 (KJV)

COMMANDING THE MORNING & DAY SPRING (DAWN)

Every day is established by you LORD God Almighty ! and therefore as your will for Job (chapter 38:12-15) was that he command the morning and the dawn to “know its place” (Ps. 38:12), I accept this as my calling because of the authority that I have in Christ Jesus (Luke 10:18-19).
I therefore command the morning and dawn from henceforth to know their place and be as (verse 14) “clay under the seal” (suppressed) and “hang as a garment” (immovable) when provoked into action as channels of Satan directly and through sorcerers in the mighty name of Jesus.

As concerns my destiny and that of my family and other loved ones and ………………(insert names of people, ministry, business etc…)

you (morning and dawn) shall only be responsive to Creator/Most High and Sovereign God for the earth, humanity and everything in it are under His control and dominion.

With the authority invested in me through Christ Jesus, I command you (morning & dawn) to obey the voice of the LORD and to “take hold of the ends of the earth and shake out the wicked” (verse 13) deeds and words that has been programmed and spoken against me, my family and other loved ones and ………….(insert names of people, ministry, business etc…).

I command the wicked to be (verse 15) blinded to that which concerns me, my family and loved ones and ………… (insert names of people, ministry, business etc…)

and that their “high arm be broken” in the mighty name of Jesus Amen

Exaltation of Warrior God & His Chosen King, Jesus Christ

Scriptural Exaltations II: Exaltation of Warrior God & His Chosen King, Jesus Christ

Most High God, you have shown yourself to be a warrior God on behalf of your people, I give you praise and exalt your name above every name for you are the only mighty, unconquerable Great One!

The righteous are filled with joy and sing your praises for you sent Jesus Christ, your Chosen King in righteousness and at His baptism when the Spirit descended upon him, you said “this is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased” Then when the Prince of Peace, Jesus began his victorious life to take back the world you so love, while fasting in the wilderness he overcame the Prince of this world.

You handed over the nations to Christ as his inheritance with authority and might over them. Indeed he, your chosen King, is the one anointed for victory and all saints through him for he said “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released,
that the blind will see,
that the oppressed will be set free…”
So “Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one.
Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God.”
But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.Then in anger he rebukes them,terrifying them with his fierce fury.
For the LORD declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.”

To the kings seated on thrones entrapped in hell, the LORD warns
“Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! Serve the Lord with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Submit to God’s royal son,[a]or he will become angry,
and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities—for his anger flares up in an instant.
But what joy for all who take refuge in him!”

Most compassionate God you said in ancient times to Israel “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.I will strengthen you and help you.I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. See, all your angry enemies lie there,confused and humiliated.Anyone who opposes you will die and come to nothing. You will look in vain for those who tried to conquer you.
Those who attack you will come to nothing. For I hold you by your right hand—
I, the Lord your God.
And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.”

In these times you continue to assure your children of your love and care. “Do not be anxious about anything, bring your petitions to me with thanksgiving and I will give you peace, that surpasses all understanding”, “Give all your worries and cares to me for I care for you” are your comforting words to your people.

“Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. Our God is a God who saves!
The Sovereign Lordrescues us from death. But God will smash the heads of his enemies, crushing the skulls of those who love their guilty ways. The Lord says, “I will bring my enemies down from Bashan;
I will bring them up from the depths of the sea.You, my people, will wash your feet in their blood, and even your dogs will get their share!”

Oh gracious LORD, you assure us that we are more than conquerors through the lover of our souls, Christ Jesus; He has given the Saints authority to trample upon all the powers of the enemy and promised that no harm will come to us. We are raised up and seated in heavenly places with God in Christ Jesus, exalted as he is, for through him we “are a chosen people…royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession.” As a result, we can show others the goodness of God, for he called us “out of the darkness into his wonderful light.”

People of God, the children in His quiver, do not fear for
Jehovah is
Gibbor, the Mighty Man of War,
Nissi, the LORD my Banner (Standard & Standard-bearer) and
Sabaoth, the LORD of the Hosts of warring Angels.

The anointed warrior king is our Christ, the rider on the white horse “named Faithful and True for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war” and “subdues kings before him, he turns them to dust with his sword to windblown chaff with his bow, he pursues them and moves on unscathed” to bring down the might of more kings and takes lands in cyclical splendor.

In victorious declaration, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords daily raises his banner and pierces his scepter of righteousness on fallow ground and decrees as the loud voices in heaven “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.”
