And, beloved, if our consciences (our hearts) do not accuse us [if they do not make us feel guilty and condemn us], we have CONFIDENCE (complete assurance and boldness) before God,
I John 3:21
The enemy says our hearts must condemn us. Don’t you understand? If our hearts don’t condemn us, then we’re dangerous to the devil’s kingdom.
Ever wake up in the morning and feel bombarded with everything that you have done wrong? That’s what I’m talking about. It is the devil trying to make you feel guilty.
Have you ever felt like you were a fool for believing in a dream or vision? That’s what I’m talking about. It is the devil trying to make you feel guilty for having a dream or hope.
And have you ever spent the morning in prayer, worship, fellowship and then by the end of the day, you wondered if you were even a Christian? That’s what I’m talking about. To the enemy, it is essential that we condemn ourselves.
If you answered yes to those questions above, then I ask another question: Have you ever stood and watched the thoughts that come to you from the left, and then from the right, condemning you on one subject, and then trying another topic? I find this quite amazing. This is when the enemy is panicking, and it becomes quite obvious what’s going on.
It’s like one minute you were just fine and then all of a sudden you get this bombardment of questions. You begin to second guess yourself on so many topics, one right after the other, it’s leaves your head spinning. And then, the final blow, one more thought comes to your head…
“All this Jesus stuff is making you plum crazy… you need to quit while you’re ahead and get your feet bolted back to the ground.”
Yes sir, if you can be convinced that you’ve done something wrong, and you’ll never get it right, then the enemy will stop you in your tracks. This is a strategy the enemy uses on every child of God. We are very dangerous to the kingdom of darkness when we know the truth about who we are in the Lord Jesus Christ.
How dangerous could it be to the kingdom of darkness if we knew we were the children of God?
How dangerous could it be to the kingdom of darkness if we knew we were more than conquerors?
How dangerous could we be to the kingdom of darkness if we knew that by his stripes we were healed?
Or if we knew that we were wise in Christ, we have the mind of Christ, have all resources available to us, are cleansed by the blood, have free access to our heavenly father?
If God is for us, who can be against us. Jesus said he would never for sake us, and that we are under the eyes of our heavenly father all the time. We have a heap of brothers and sisters in the kingdom of God that the Holy Spirit can call on to pray for us at any time.
We have authority over the enemy and his kingdom of darkness.
I think that’s a clue of why we are so dangerous to the enemy. We are given authority in the name of Jesus Christ over the enemy and over all of the kingdom of darkness.
Go God go!⚔️
