Offense or Defense?
The other day as I was thinking on the events being played out around us, the chaos, the violence, questioning what is truth and what is distorted, feeling like the enemy is really attacking some areas, I felt the Holy Spirit say this: Remember, the Kingdom of God is always on the offensive! It is the devil that is on the defensive trying to counter act, hinder and hold back what the Lord is doing. Don’t buy into the lie that the devil is on the offensive and the Kingdom is on the defensive.
The Kingdom of God is always advancing but the power of darkness is always trying to hold that back, trying to delay what He knows is coming, his demise! So all the turmoil, chaos, disruptions, violence is the enemy trying to distract, instill fear, withhold truth, and get people to take their focus off of what the Lord is doing! A few weeks ago my son said, I don’t believe there is more evil in the world. There always was a lot of evil. The Kingdom is growing and there is more light that is exposing the evil.
The Lord is on the offensive! Make sure you maintain that mindset! Matt 11:12 2 And from the time John the Baptist began preaching until now, the Kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing, and violent people are attacking it. (NLT)
Declaring Our Victory Emmanuel,
