24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
No one is exempt! It doesn’t matter the title, the anointing, or even the demonstration, that someone has. The devil comes cunningly with deception and will use every opportunity to pervert the gifts that God has given us. We have to stay humble before the Lord constantly asking Him to search our hearts and open to His correction. We must stay in a posture of conviction and repentance, seeking clean hands and a pure heart.
Now is the time where we have to stay in the spirit and pray continuously. We have to judge everything according to God’s Word without twisting the text. Correction is very much needed for the saints, because of this, the accuser is working double time to falsely judge the ones who are in alignment with God’s plan. The great news is, that if we are serving the Lord, He will vindicate us.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.
but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar. This is what God’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.” God’s Decree.
But no instrument forged against you will be allowed to hurt you, and no voice raised to condemn you will successfully prosecute you. It’s that simple; this is how it will be for the servants of the Eternal; I will vindicate them.
“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord.
But in that coming day 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!
Wow, all of these different versions add such a rich understanding of this scripture! We wrestle in the spirit, not against flesh and blood. We stay serving the Lord, no matter the circumstance, and He will clear us from the accusations that have been holding us back.
There have been words that have been spoken that have seemed to keep us from our promise. There have been unjustified offenses that have been taken on by people from hearsay. There have been false assumptions and misunderstandings that have been orchestrated by perceptions filtered by the devil. There have been witchcraft prayers that have been spoken over us.
God is coming to vindicate us! We will triumph over all accusations and rise to have dominion in this season. Pray that the saints of God be turned to His voice. We must stay in unity with God’s plan and focus on what God is doing and not what man is or isn’t doing. Press in a little while longer. Don’t give in to the counterfeit. The real thing is coming bigger than we have imagined!
Father, we thank You that You are a just and merciful God. Forgive us for placing man’s gifts above Your Word. Forgive us for being deceived by false teachings. Forgive us for complaining instead of praying. Align us with Your Word and give us clean hands and a pure heart. Keep us humble and receptive to conviction that comes from You. We believe that You are our vindicator. We condemn every judgement that has been falsely spoken against us. We break the power of every lie, curse, offense, misunderstanding, rumor, and anything else that has tried to keep us from our inheritance. Let the spirit of prayer arise and increase in our lives. Let our foundation always be firmly planted in the truth of Your Word. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
