No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from Me declares the Lord.
Isaiah 54: 17
Here the writer is expressing God’s protection and compassion for His people Israel. There have been many types of weapons that have been made to hurt and destroy people and nations throughout history.
However today we are seeing a different kind of weapon, a deadly virus, which is destroying human life, regardless of culture, colour, age, stature and nation.
The virus attacking parts of the lungs, which distribute oxygen around the organs of the human body. It’s aim is to kill, yet Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it in abundance.” John 10:10
OUR SPIRITUAL ARMOUR
All believers today, living under the new covenant are equipped with spiritual weapons. “Finally be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the whole armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Therefore put on the whole armour of God, so that when the evil day comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand, stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet with readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
In addition to all this take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions, with all kinds of prayers and requests.
With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions, with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”
Ephesians 6: 10-17
This is not the time for the church to be indifferent or passive, and be in the trenches. It is the time for it to be on the front line standing together shoulder to shoulder in the Spirit. Jesus has already won the victory at the cross, prophetically we just proclaim it until we see it come into fruition in the physical realm.
The Lords Prayer
When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of God, will raise up a standard against him!
Do not fear then, for the Lord your God is the one fighting for you. Deuteronomy 8:22
Behold I have given you authority to tread on serpents, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. Luke 10:19
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every though to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10: 3-5
May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double edged sword in their mouths and a double edged sword in their hands, to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, to bind their chains in fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron, to carry out the sentence of all the saints. Psalm 149:6-9
We praise you Lord for your love forgiveness and long suffering. Forgive, forget, restore we pray Lord in Your mercy.
In the authority of the Name of Jesus and through His blood, we bind this corona virus from the nations from the earth, and command it to go to the pit of hell where it belongs, and never to return.
Father we pray, for the power of Your Holy Spirit to flow from the four corners of the earth, to bring repentance, salvation, healing and restoration. Thank you Jesus, for nothing is impossible with You.
And they conquered him by the blood of the Lamb, and buy the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. Rev 12: 11
Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the End.
COME LORD JESUS – COME !
