We Overcome



The Lord has me in waiting mode right now and it behooves me to obey.  Battle above the Clouds will continue as soon as He releases me to continue.

Yet, He has led me to post this.  I ask that you please pay close attention and take this and all things to the Lord.  He also led me to post these scriptures:

I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to passBecause I knew that you are obstinate, and your neck is an iron sinew, and your brow brass; 
I have even from the beginning declared it to you; before it came to pass I showed it you: lest you should say, My idol has done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, has commanded them.  [Is 48:3-5]

Take heed:

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executes My counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. [Is 46:9-11]

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraidAnd now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. [Jn 14:27, 29]

Fear you not; for I AM with you: be not dismayed; for I AM your God: I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.  [Is 41:10]

Now I present the reader with the article that He wanted me to post. It is to His honor, praise and glory alone.

We Overcome

We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony...

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death. [Rev 12:11]

Suddenlies

Things that are coming will be as unexpected and as sudden, as a
lost wallet that disappears immediately after a purchase. No amount
of searching will restore it, bring understanding or closure. Many people
will blame themselves. Most will blame others, but the multitudes will
blame God.

People will be suspicious of each other and accusations will arise
beyond measure. Countless will feel helpless and without hope.
Life will be frightening to them and they will not know where to turn.
Hard lessons will be learned. Some will cry out to God and repent
in spirit and in truth.

For there is now therefore no condemnation to those who are in
Christ and walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
[Rom 8:1]

But they who have prepared ahead have already repented and keep
a repentant spirit in their heart. They who put their trust in the Lord
shall be saved. The peace that passes all understanding will sweep over
them and they will offer up thanksgiving, despite all outward appearances.

They who keep a repentant heart and trust in the Lord will not fear nor be soon shaken. They will rise up in His power and might. In the time of trouble, He draws them closer and delivers them. 

For they have heeded the warnings and have received chastisement and correction, as obedient children of the most High Almighty God and One TRUE Holy Father. 


For they prepared their hearts for the 'suddenlies' and the unexpected.

For He, who loves His children will teach them, then test them.
He will lead them and guide them. He will forewarn and protect them.

They will sing to their Savior in the day of their affliction knowing that
they are His. For who are they that are obedient? It is they who were willing to learn obedience through the things that they suffered, as did their holy Savior, Christ Jesus - He who learned obedience unto death.

It is they who picked up their cross daily and willingly to crucify flesh.
It is they who abide in Christ, knowing that it is not they who live,
but Christ Jesus, [Yshua] our Messiah, who lives in them.

They considered not their own lives, but laid it all down, believing that
He who commanded them to crucify self, would also come with His
resurrection power. 

Against hope, they believe in hope. They believe in the words of their Messiah, Yshua / Jesus who said, With MEN it is impossible but with GOD, ALL things are possible.

Walk By Faith, Not by Sight
 
Yea indeed, to walk by faith and NOT by sight, simple faith as a child.
It is they who understand the authority of His name, the power of His
blood and all that He did accomplish by being crucified, resurrected and
ascended by the power of His Father, the Most High Almighty God.

Yes, the true sons of God [those hidden in Jesus the Christ] are manifesting,
being united as one body [His body, His bride, the ekklesia (church)]
through the Holy Spirit of the Most High. 


Simultaneously, the tares are gathering, united as one in the 'spirit of antichirst - the false christ], because their 'father' [satan, Lucifer, the dragon] counterfeits [mirrors] all that he sees the Almighty do, for he is the father of lies, a murderer from the beginning - the roaring lion who roams around seeking whom he may devour.

These are the days to prepare. These are the days of testing and trying
the heart to see if you love the Lord your God, and to purge [purify] us of all that is not of Him, to remove the dross in the refining; to remove every spot and every blemish, for He will have a holy people. Do not fear the days ahead, which you were forewarned would come suddenly and unexpectedly.

Narrow is the road and strait is the gate; and few there are that find it.
For the narrow road is difficult with many trials and tribulation. By not
trusting and obeying the King and Lord, the love of many has waxed cold and many fall away. This is already happening, it shall increase just as Jesus [Yshua] foretold.

The love that waxes cold not only leaves its first love [Christ Jesus], but it also lacks compassion and love for fellow brethren and the unsaved. They have become desensitized as daily reports of lawlessness and brutal travesties fill their ears. 


Some walk with praise on their lips, but their hearts far from God, whilst others are fooled by delusion for they did not seek truth and others still, just simply abandon their faith. Dark, dark are these days, but they are only a shadow of the greater darkness that soon covers this world.

His children walk by FAITH and not by sight. They have learned not to fear man, but to only fear [revere, honour, respect] their Father God. They walk in the Spirit of LOVE - His Spirit, His love. 



Yet, love is also justice and judgment.  Love judges righteous judgment.  We will love what God loves and hate what God hates.  Many in the Body of Christ are deceived, believing what they want to believe, without seeking and waiting for the counsel of the Lord.



Instead, many blindly follow after lies that have been cleverly disguised.  There is mixture, like clay and iron.  Satan began in the Garden of Eden, but he did not stop there.  Truth has been twisted and lies are brilliantly presented.  Satan is subtle, crafty and clever.  



Ah, may the LORD, ALMIGHTY GOD, the Great Spirit Chief keep US ever so humble and help US to endure now and in all that is coming. May WE be considered worthy to escape these things, yet we must love not our lives unto death.  This world is not our home.  Father, help us all.

For the strait gate, where few willingly enter in, can only be entered by OBEDIENCE
by those who TRUST their GOD.  Get ready.  It time to prepare for the suddenlies and the unexpected that shall come soon enough.

The Lord led me to write this back on May 26, 2008.  The original article is here:  We Overcome  It was written when I was using the pseudonym of A. Chenoa.

for His glory
