Blanket of Darkness - spiritual blindness
Sept. 2011
In one way or another, several people have seen this.
I myself have 'seen' the United States of America dead and wrapped in a shroud.


Isaiah 60:2: For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

March 25, 2008, after He had shown me a vision during my worship time of a giant black blanket descending silently towards the earth. It was falling through space and when I saw it, I got a really bad feeling. I did not understand what it meant at the time and had asked Him to reveal it to me. I could not remember if I had posted this or not.

March 25, 2008:  
The blanket of darkness you saw descending is spiritual blindness that is about to cover the earth. The people who have denied Me, those who have treated My Son's blood frivolously, those who do not walk in My ways, will be trapped in it. They will become prey to the Evil One and will be given over to their sinful ways. Their lusts shall consume them, and death shall be their reward.

You are seeing My judgment fall on some already, but you will see this increase as the days pass, as I remove the blemishes that have shamed My holy name and profaned My church.

I will no longer look the other way from their sin but I will uncover it for all the world to see. Disgrace shall be their reward. I will no longer tolerate sin in the church.

And the pretenders I shall also remove for they are not of Me, they are not branches of the true vine. They sit like puppets, week after week, but their eyes do not see and their ears do not hear. They seek Me not and have aroused My holy anger.

My Holy apostles and prophets I will send and they will be run out as I shine the glorious light of My holiness on them. I shall drive all darkness from the Bride of My Son!
http://wingsofprophecy.blogspot.c...ision-of-blanket-of-darkness.html

Galatians 5:24: And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Galatians 2:3: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Isaiah 8:19  And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?
Isa 8:20  To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
Isa 8:21  And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward.
Isa 8:22  And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

KUNDALINI WARNING
False spirits invade the church
 
Andrew Strom

Such DEMONIC demonstrations!  Its PAGANISM - WITCHCRAFT!
Hands leaking is demonic, it is NOT GOD!  Its satanism folks!
I knew Todd Bentley was evil and I had also heard that Rick Joyner is not trustworthy, but I am sad that the prayer group IHOP is also involved.
I was always very uncomfortable with IHOP.
How tragic for all those who will be forever in the flames and torments of HELLFIRE due to these WOLVES!

The following was published this week by a spokesman for the 'spiritual drunkenness' movement.

ANTI-Kundalini Videos are NOT from God
by Rick Cruz Torres  Oct 31  (on HELL o een .. hmmmmm .. clue ... )

My super cool brothers and sisters in Jesus continue to send me this video and others like it, on an almost daily basis.
Some are sincerely concerned about things they don't understand; others have already decided that folks like John and Lily Crowder, Ben and Stephanie Dunn, James Goll,
Bob Jones, Todd Bentley, Bill and Beni Johnson and others are the devil incarnate.

This particular video series is the product of Andrew Strom, who is a "reformed pentecostal", otherwise known as a shipwrecked believer.
The vast majority of the so called discernment ministries, are nothing more than vehicles for the religious spirit.
NONE of the self appointed watchmen who have made a business out of calling God's friends and servants heretics, are Spirit Baptized, Blood bought believers." - Rick Torres.

ANDREW RESPONDS

I dont know why you would say such a thing, my friend. You don't even know me, or the heart I have for the Body of Christ in putting out these warnings.
Some people indeed tell me it is not very nice and not very Christian to put out these things.
But what happens to the precious sheep if nobody ever warns them?
Isn't it true that the Bible literally COMMANDS us to issue warnings like this if the Body is in danger?
My friend, how can you say that I am not a Spirit Baptized, Blood bought believer, when you don't even know me or my heart for the Body?

Below are the 3 Videos that are causing all this controversy.
We are currently trying to get them onto hard-copy format so people can have copies to warn their friends.
I do not apologize at all for issuing these warnings to the Body. We simply felt it had to be done.

These manifestations are the work of evil spirits indwelling those who fall after these lies.
I used to be before Christ saved me a practitioner of "Spiritism" a branch of vodoo that dedicates to the study and communication with the dead
through body possesions, you allow these evil spirits to speak and act through you or your body.
Speaking weird things like the guy who seems to be (in part 3 ) smoking Jehova-guana.
He was speaking right before that like I used to see some mediums like they are called when indwelled by the spirit of the dead.

This is a very serious threat against the Church.
This last Sunday we had a visitor who came to the Sunday School who after the class ended
tried to tell me that been drunk in the Spirit is promoted by the Bible (there is no one single scripture to attest that).
So they are around us trying to infiltrate our ranks with false gospels and we must be alert.

The Holy Spirit
Power Presence and Purpose
The Gifts
 Part 13-14   Michael Boldea is trustworthy!
http://www.handofhelp.com/index.php

Although I keep trying to move ahead with the teaching on the gifts of healings, I keep going back to the passage in the gospel according to James, and each time I reread it, something new, and relevant to the topic of healing stands out.

James 5:16, “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

One reason that we don’t see as many healings as we ought within the household of faith is because there is very little teaching on the importance of confessing one’s trespasses. When a trespass or a sin is not confessed to either the elders of the church, the deacons, the pastor or a fellow brother, it becomes a stumbling block between man and God. Until the stumbling block is removed, until the trespass is confessed, there is no healing, and this is the reason many are weak and sick within the congregation of God.

Not every disease, not every ailment, not every thorn is a messenger of Satan sent to buffet us, as was the case with Paul, but in many cases, they are the direct result of sin in our lives. Yes, sin is a destructive force that brings about weakness and disease within the church, and until the sin is confessed and repented of, and the individual in question is prayed for, they will remain in their state of infirmity.

1 Corinthians 11:29-32, “For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.”

There is allot to unpack in these three verses, and although they don’t relate directly to the gifts of healings, they are nevertheless of great import in discovering the reason why so many within the church are in need of healing.

First of all, Paul is writing to the church of Corinth, he is writing to believers and not to those of the world. So this scripture passage pertains to believers, and it is the believer who is warned that if they eat and drink of the body and blood of Christ in an unworthy manner, they eat and drink judgment to themselves.

It is because men do not judge themselves, it is because men willfully sin and consider it an irrelevant thing, it is because men eat and drink of the body of the Lord in an unworthy manner, that they fall under judgment, and as such many are weak and sick, and many have already died.

I realize it’s progressive and tolerant not to preach against sin, I realize it gives the duplicitous and willfully sinful a warm fuzzy feeling to hear that Jesus loves them just the way they are with no need to confess, repent and pursue righteousness, but the men who tell these lies from behind pulpits aren’t doing the unrepentant sinner any favors, for not only will he be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord if he does not confess and repent, but he will be condemned with the world.

Try as some men might, we cannot change certain truths in the word of God, nor can we expunge certain scriptures because we do not like what they are implying.

Men throughout the land today are drinking judgment to themselves, not discerning the Lord’s body, and for this reason they are weak and sick with no hope of being made whole and renewed because they are not being taught the one thing that could bring them back to wholeness.

What we must decide is whether we want to be chastened of the Lord, or condemned with the world. Knowing that the Lord chastens those He loves, I would rather be chastened by the Lord, for when He condemns the world, and judges it in righteousness, there will be no mercy, nor will there be any reprieve.

Hebrews 12:5-8, “And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: ‘My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives.’ If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.”

Now some will read this passage from the Word of God, and shake their heads and say ‘that’s not the God I serve’. If that’s not the God you serve, if you don’t believe that God chastens those He loves, and those who are without chastening are illegitimate and not sons, then may I humbly submit that you are not serving the God of the Bible.

The Word clearly says that God chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives. To scourge is to flog or to whip, to punish severely, yet if we endure chastening God deals with us as with sons.

How many sermons have you heard of late on the scourging of the Lord? How many sermons have you heard of late on the chastening of the Lord? I wager not many, because chastening is unpopular and unwelcome, and a great majority today despises it, and you could never go wrong giving the people what they want rather than what they need.

If only we would begin to realize what it is that some of the most famous preachers and evangelists today are teaching the masses, if only we would begin to realize just how much of the Bible they are omitting, we would see just how spiritually deficient we truly are, and just how far we’ve strayed from the truth of God’s holy word.

We preach a neutered gospel, we receive the bread and cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, we refuse to repent and fall at the foot of the cross, yet we have the temerity to ask why it is that God isn’t doing more in our churches, why it is that our services are so dry and absent of life, why it is that we have to continually come up with more outrageous schemes, bigger productions, shorter programs, and more flowery sermons just to keep the folks in the pews.

If we preached the whole council of God, if we presented the entire gospel of truth, if we compelled men to repentance and righteousness and holiness, if we did what is our duty to do in the first place, I guarantee that we would see a greater outpouring of the power of God, of the Holy Spirit, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

We’ve gotten the masses hooked on a morally ambiguous God, we’ve told people there was no need for repentance until they started believing it, we did away with the divinity of Christ and focused solely on the moral lessons His parables could teach us, we’ve widened the narrow path, we called God a liar to His face and insisted that all could find the way, we’ve encouraged a lukewarm spiritual state giving it the fuzzy name of ‘casual Christian’, we call ourselves sons of God when we are in word and deed illegitimate, we’ve surrendered our hearts to the material world ignoring the kingdom of God altogether, then we wonder how it is that the church is so weak and impotent and powerless and purposeless.

We think ourselves evolved, we think ourselves wise, we think ourselves tolerant, we think of ourselves as having progressed from the stringent constraints of a unambiguous and uncompromising gospel, we think ourselves little gods who can blaze our own trail, invent our own doctrine and serve the idols of our hearts without repercussion not realizing that we are nothing more than phlegm and God is getting ready to clear His throat.

Revelation 3:15-16, “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth.”

To those of you wondering, no I am not having a nervous breakdown in written form, I’ve just been studying and getting deeper into the gifts of the Holy Spirit, seeing all the wondrous power we have access to, seeing all the glorious things that God is readily able and willing to do through His children, and the deeper I got into my study, the angrier I became with the current state of what we call the church today.

Much of what we call the church today is a circus show, and the preacher or pastor acts as the farceur, doing his best to make people laugh, to get them to feel at ease, to make them comfortable, and to make them think that they got their money’s worth.

‘Wasn’t that a great song from the special music team, they made sure not to sing about Jesus or the blood of Christ, or the cross, they made sure to keep it ambiguous enough where you never really know if they’re singing about God or some long lost love. Let’s give the music team a special clap offering for being sensitive to those of other religious beliefs, to the agnostics, as well as the atheists, and not offending anyone by mentioning the Son of God. Next up we have a skit, followed by the morning offering, and then we will continue with our sermon series entitled ‘self-esteem: the great healer.’”

Jesus is not returning for a circus, He is returning for a bride. Jesus did not hang on a cross, bleed and die so that we could get rich, have self-esteem, rediscover our inner child, or be at peace with our outwardly appearance. He gave Himself that He might sanctify and cleanse us, that we might be holy in His sight.

What have we done to the word of God? What sort of men have we been listening to? What sort of teaching have we allowed to worm its way into our hearts, if we readily lend our ear to the aberrations being passed off as gospel truth, and not only that but we defend them and violently so?

Ephesians 5:25-27, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it, that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish.”

A glorious church without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, holy and without blemish, this is what Jesus is returning for, and He will accept nothing less. He gave Himself, He died, that He might present to Himself that glorious church for which He suffered and agonized, for which He bled and wept, yet with a wink and a nod we shrug our shoulders and smarmily think to ourselves, ‘I guess He’ll just have to make due with me, He wouldn’t leave heaven barren and empty just because of a technicality.’

Yes He would, He most definitely would leave heaven empty, because He is a righteous and holy God, and He would rather have an empty heaven than a heaven full of unrepentant sinners.

May we wake up to the reality of the times that we are living in, may we wholeheartedly and without reservation pursue righteousness and holiness, may we strive to be that spotless bride for which Christ is returning, and may we thoroughly equip ourselves for the coming battle having put on the whole armor of God.

Hopefully tomorrow we’ll get back on track, and continue discussing the gifts of healings, but once in a while I have to vent, or at least share what is heavy on my heart. This was one of those times.
With love in Christ, Michael Boldea Jr.

TRUTH is our PROTECTION
Jan 24, 2013

I woke in the night with this on my heart so strongly that I had to get up and write on it.
All the hosts of hell are being loosed against the people of earth today.
TRUTH is our PROTECTION, so love Truth or perish.  Truth is Life.  Jesus is Truth, the only Truth.
Media broadcast stories of lies and the perishing believe the lies and reject the truth.
Its much easier to believe the lies!  That is worshipping the Beast of Revelation 13.

Jesus gave His followers power to cast out demons in His Name.
However, warning was given to those NOT following Him but trying to use His Name.
If you love the lies, accept them as true, you are not following Christ, you follow satan, if you realize it or not.
I cannot impress this upon you strongly enough!

We command demons to leave, we dont ask them.
Jesus said - come out of her!
We say - Come out in the Name of Yeshua, the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth!
In the case of a home or place, 'GET OUT.'

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith
and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
1 Tim. 4:1

Can man impart the Holy Spirit?    NO!!!
Bill Wilson
Last week a friend told me about an experience he had at his church. He said that the leaders asked if anyone wanted to have “The Holy Spirit.” If so, he said, they needed to come up front where the leader was going to “impart” the Holy Spirit into those wanting the Holy Spirit. He said that the pastor asked everyone to point their hands toward the group and join with him in imparting the Holy Spirit into them. He said that he could feel “sort of a balloon extending out where he could actually rest his hand on it” while the impartation was taking place. At risk of offending someone, this is an example of bad doctrine and the deception that is going on in many churches.
It is non-biblical and nothing short of heresy.

I have been studying the doctrine and theology of many so-called “Christian” ministries that teach that men can lay hands on a person and “impart” and/or “activate” certain gifts such as the gift of prophecy, of being a prophet or apostle, gift of tongues, gift of whatever. There is a certain moral dualism at play here. People believe that there is good and evil. That God is good and that satan is evil. They believe that God limits himself by only working through man. Therefore, it is man, not God, who has control over whether evil is victorious or defeated. Man, therefore, has the same attributes as God and can impart them and activate them at will in other men. This is not scriptural.

Those supporting this concept use Acts 8 as their justification. It is the story of Peter and John going to Samaria to pray for those who received the word of YHVH. Verse 15 says, “Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (for as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus). Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.” If one quit reading Acts at that point, it could be argued that the Holy Spirit was given by these men. But the story does not begin nor end there, and well it doesn’t because if it did, many would believe that it is man, not YHVH that can impart the Holy Ghost.

In context of the totality of Acts 8, there was a certain sorcerer named Simon who was known for having “the great power of God.” Simon heard Philip preach the word, believed and was baptized. Acts 8:13 says Simon “continued with Phillip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.” Verses 18-19 say, “When Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.” Peter strongly rebuked Simon, saying his heart was not right with YHVH; that the gift of YHVH cannot be purchased with money; and called him to repent.

Act 8 in its entirety addresses that man can neither impart nor activate the gifts of YHVH apart from YHVH. Man is not the equal of YHVH, just in obedience a willing vessel. As is written in Daniel 4:17 describing the authority of YHVH over men, “to the intent that the living may know that the most High rules in the kingdom of men...”  Man is not the keeper of YHVH’s will. Be aware that those calling themselves Christians who are practicing impartations and activations are dealing with spirits, as once did Simon the sorcerer, but they may well not be the Holy Spirit.

I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,
I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us
.
Philippians 3  -  http://nlt.scripturetext.com/philippians/3.htm


My children, I want to give you a new spiritual awakening as a gift.
Forget your failures, your guilt and everything that once happened to you.

I live, and you should be living too. Every negative issue of the past is disposed by My accomplished works.
Now it is your turn, to do My works. So, forgive each other, encourage each other, serve each other and accept one another,
just like I accepted you. So long ago, I have forgiven My Peter his failures and have made right all that was wrong with him.
And just like that I will now do the same for you.

My child, you do not have to become desperate about your past failures. Get up, the time of My grace has dawned.
The time of your healing and reconstruction has long come about.
Your wounds have healed since long, you only have to rid yourself of the old bandage and plaster cast.  
You are fully healed by My wounds, says the LORD.  Rid yourself of your images, your impressions and viewpoints of old.

I AM RISEN, says the LORD. A new age has dawned for you.
You shall now receive a new image of Me, of the world and of yourself.

The first is gone, and belongs to the issues of ages past.  There is no going back.
Now My plan and My will is fulfilled, says the LORD.
Nobody can prevent Me from healing, from liberating and from reconstructing you.  
Lo and behold, I want to turn My plan through you into reality.

Since My resurrection, there is another program running, says the LORD.
Now it is time to live, to believe and to serve.
And, I Myself, am tendering the contracts of old that I have concluded with your faithful forefathers of ages past.
Without exception these contracts apply to you as well, and shall determine entirely your future life.

I, Myself, will care to fulfill with My whole power all that I ever promised once upon a time
the faithful of old that it will come apparent and applied with you. Trust in Me, says the LORD.
I thank God for this powerful easter message.
I cannot hold back and keep it solely  for me. I am sharing it and passing it along to everyone that I can reach.

God will richly bless you.

The Assyrians are spared, and Jonah is furious, the very idea of a prophet being sent to Nineveh-Nineveh the capital of the hated Assyrian empire, the home of the people who had destroyed the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the ten tribes of Israel in 722BC, dispersing those ten tribes forever, the nation that had then laid siege to Jerusalem and exacted tribute from Judah for many years-Nineveh appears as another Sodom, Yahweh is going to punish them for immorality, but not necessarily for idolatry. But the stronger problem for Jonah seems to be the lack of punishment for the wicked. Jonah is indignant that the Assyrians didn’t get what they so richly deserved: didn’t Jonah say this would happen, that Yahweh always forgives, he’s this slow to anger, compassionate guy; he always repent, the wicked are never punished! It seems Jonah is fed up with the way Yahweh is doing things, his mercy perverts his justice, and some things ought not to be forgiven; people must be held to account for their evil actions, how can Yahweh not do justice! As Jonah is leaving the city to sulk, seems his complaint is twofold. If your going to punish the wicked then just push them; they deserve it. And if you’re planning to spare them, then just spare them and don’t waste my time with messages and oracles. As Jonah sits in a little booth that he has constructed, Yahweh causes a leafy plant to grow over him, providing shade and saving him from a good deal of discomfort; and the plant is to be the source of a final lesson for Jonah. How could Yahweh not be compassionate? For even the most evil of peoples are no less his creation that he has cared for than precious Israel. And if they will only turn to Yahweh in humility, he’ll wipe the slate clean, he’ll show compassion and forgive. It is only human to long for the punishment of the wicked; but Yahweh longs for their re-formation, their turning. Their is the moral law of the Noahide covenant, and it’s for this that Yahweh has decreed punishment, and Jonah is a champion of divine justice. Jonah believes that sin should be punished, he’s outraged at Yahweh’s forgiveness. But Jonah learns that a change of heart is enough to obtain mercy, and that the true role of the prophet is perhaps to move people to reformation and turning.

Spiritual Warfare Scriptures - the Basics
The Body of Christ is NAKED, PUT ON the ARMOR!
Ephesians 6


Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
Put on the full armor of God so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,
and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE.
In addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,
and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel,
for which I am an ambassador in chains, that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Recently my church went on a mission trip to Nicaragua, and I developed a synopsis of the basic spiritual warfare Scriptures for the Team, at the Pastor's request.
They used these almost every night for devotionals.  I hope you can use them too and know that you have power over the enemy:

Scriptures for warfare for a mission trip (OR AT ANY TIME):

Main Warfare Focus:

1. All God’s children have the promise of VICTORY over the enemy.
2. Satan’s Tactics
3. How do we resist the enemy?
4. The power of Satan must be broken.
5. The Important Factors.
a. Faith
b. Word of God
c. Prayer
d. Praise
6. Requirements for Christians on a Mission Trip.

Spiritual Warfare Scriptures and Confessions to make:

1. All God’s children have the promise of VICTORY over the enemy.

Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, He (Jesus) made a  show of them openly, triumphing over them in it. (the cross).  (Confess your sins, renounce Satan and all his work in your life, and claim the victory over him, in Jesus Name.  The blood of Jesus brought us the victory and we claim it in the Name of Jesus, who is over all.)

2 cor 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

2 Cor 10:3-6 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:  
4  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

2 Cor 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place.

2 Tim 1:7 For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Luke 10:19 "Behold, 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."

Rom 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Romans 8:38-39  For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life,  nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers ... nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of  God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

James 4:7 " ... Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

1 John 4:4 "You ... have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world."

Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Isaiah 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment you shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord ...

1 Jn 6:63 It is the spirit that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
