When we offer praise amid trials, it does not only set us free, but it brings deliverance to all that concerns us, to everyone around us. The power of God moves mightily without limits.Deliverance Through the Power of Praise — In Pursuit of My First Love
Matthew 17:20 KJV “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
Don’t you just love the way Jesus teaches us? Can you imagine the looks on His disciples faces when he said, ‘You can tell this mountain to move from here to there and it will move?’ Jesus wants us to be mountain movers too.
Hebrews 11:6 KJV “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
God loves rewarding those who seek Him diligently. And He loves demonstrating how powerful our faith in Him is. Faith goes beyond anything in this world. It is not from this world. It is of God.
Hebrews 11:1 KJV “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
The natural mind doesn’t understand faith. ‘How can there be evidence of things not seen?’ they may ask. To answer such a question I’ll give an example: you believe that wind exist, right? But can you see the wind? No. But you do see evidence of the wind in everything from a sailboat to a hurricane. Likewise those who have faith in God and His mighty power don’t have to see everything physically to know that He exist. But they can also see the invisible qualities of God through the things He has made.
Romans 1:20 KJV “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”
FAITH MOVES MOUNTAINS/GIANTS TOO
To illustrate faith further a young boy named David was moved by his faith to boldly confront a battle tested champion named Goliath. David wasn’t a soldier. He was a young shepherd boy who herded sheep, and wrote songs and poems about God. A highly unlikely candidate to take on a warrior of Goliath’s stature. Oh, I forgot to add; Goliath was a nine and a half foot giant! Had David ever fought a nine and a half foot giant before? Had he ever SEEN or experienced this? No. So what evidence did he have that emboldened him to take on such a task? Was this boy just nuts? Let’s let David answer these questions in his own words.
While asking King Saul for permission to fight the giant this is what David said:
1 Samuel 17:34-37 NIV “But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock,  I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it.  Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God.  The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”
What a man! I mean, “boy.” Hah hah hah! David was something else. And yes, he was successful in striking down and defeating the giant Goliath. This great victory of faith has become known for thousands of years. Do you SEE what faith can do for you?
Like David we can do things too we’ve never done or seen before. What evidence do we have of things unseen? What mighty acts have we witnessed our heavenly Father do? To whom can we compare our God? To no one! He is the King of the universe!
2 Chronicles 16:9 KJV “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.”

1 Peter 2:11 KJV “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.”
Something unseen wars against our souls: fleshly lusts. Lust is something we feel, something we crave and long for. Different things can trigger lust. For example:
Proverbs 6:25 KJV “Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.”
A woman’s beauty can cause one to lust. God warns against this. She can even take you away (capture you) with her eyelids? What’s up with that? It’s true. Ever notice women today that wear false eyelashes? Doesn’t it do something different to their appearance like make them look more seductive? God said to watch out for those blinking eyelids and coy looks. They have power to seize you. I’m talking from experience. I’ve been seized more times than I care to admit. I’m fortunate to be alive.
Proverbs 31:30 NET “Charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD will be praised.”
Charm is very deceptive. And so is flattery. There’s a saying: “You catch more bees with honey than you do with vinegar.” How sweet are the words of the soul hunter. How nice they can make us feel. We can be led to the slaughter without even knowing it, partly because WE ARE DESIRING THE WRONG THING.
James 1:14-15 KJV “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
Proverbs 5:3-4 NIV “For the lips of the adulterous woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil;  but in the end she is bitter as gall, sharp as a double-edged sword.”
Proverbs 29:5-6 NIV “Those who flatter their neighbors are spreading nets for their feet.  Evildoers are snared by their own sin, but the righteous shout for joy and are glad.”
Flattery and charm works best on those who covet what is evil. And those who are looking for evil always find it. What you are about to read next applies to both males and females:
PLIGHT OF THE SIMPLE
Proverbs 7:7-27 NIV “I saw among the simple, I noticed among the young men, a youth who had no sense.  He was going down the street near her corner, walking along in the direction of her house  at twilight, as the day was fading, as the dark of night set in.  Then out came a woman to meet him, dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent.  (She is unruly and defiant, her feet never stay at home;  now in the street, now in the squares, at every corner she lurks.)  She took hold of him and kissed him and with a brazen face she said:  “Today I fulfilled my vows, and I have food from my fellowship offering at home.  So I came out to meet you; I looked for you and have found you!  I have covered my bed with colored linens from Egypt.  I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes and cinnamon.  Come, let’s drink deeply of love till morning; let’s enjoy ourselves with love!  My husband is not at home; he has gone on a long journey.  He took his purse filled with money and will not be home till full moon.”  With persuasive words she led him astray; she seduced him with her smooth talk.  All at once he followed her like an ox going to the slaughter, like a deer stepping into a noose  till an arrow pierces his liver, like a bird darting into a snare, little knowing it will cost him his life.  Now then, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say.  Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray into her paths.  Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng.  Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.”
Did you notice this women told the young man that she had food left over from her fellowship (or peace) offering? And she said, “Today I fulfilled my vows?” She had went to the temple earlier that day and offered a sacrifice to God. She just came out of church so to speak, and is now seducing the young man. According to The Law the food sacrificed in a fellowship offering had to be eaten the same day the sacrifice was made. But if the person made a vow (as she did) the flesh from the sacrifice could be eaten by the next day. On the third day it had to be burned up. (Leviticus 7:11-18 19:5-8) So, this woman is telling the young man that she is willing to share her food with him, and that she piously keeps The Law when it comes to making vows and sacrifices. Yet she is willing to break The Law by breaking her marriage vow? DO YOU SEE HOW HYPOCRITICALLY SICK THIS CHICK IS?
There are many like her. They are very religious outwardly, but in matters of fleshly lusts they have no restraint. They abuse God’s kindness, and use it as an excuse for loose conduct. (Ephesians 5:5-6 Revelation 21:8) These have only an outward form of godliness but deny it’s true power. And from them we are told to turn away. (2 Timothy 3:5 1 Corinthians 5:9-13) Like the woman in Proverbs 6 they too go to church, then come right out of church and engage in sexual sin (some even while at church). That’s how soul hunters operate. They have no shame. They will play the, “I’m a Christian too,” role. Don’t fall for it. God says the young man in Proverbs 6 had no sense; he was simple, and was a slave to his desires. That’s why he fell for her hook line and sinker, not knowing it would cost him his life.

Colossians 1:13-14 KJV “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.”
The blood of Jesus is oh so powerful! More powerful than I can fathom. When Jesus died for our sins His real blood was shed on our behalf. This blood came from Almighty God! Jesus had no human father. He was no ordinary human being. The blood of Jesus has the miraculous power to transfer people from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light. Believers are literally taken from one place and firmly set into another realm:
Ephesians 2:6 NIV “And God raised us up with Christ and SEATED us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.”
Jesus’ blood has in it the forgiveness of ALL SINS for the whole world. Those who believe in Him are, “Not guilty,” before God. Their sins do not follow them to the grave. Thank God! This righteous blood had to be shed on our behalf or no one could be saved. Saved from what? Saved from the just penalty of sin; eternal death. All who believe in Jesus have His blood, they have His spirit living within them. They are born again and are of His bloodline. They are the descendants of Abraham. It doesn’t matter what nationality they are. All the promises God made to Abraham regarding His blessed offspring applies to all who have faith just like Abraham the Bible says. This is accomplished by rebirth of the spirit because of God’s grace through faith. (Ephesians 2:8-9) Not by works or simple human lineage. Jesus’ blood makes it possible for any bastard child to be adopted into the family of Almighty God, and receive the full rights of sonship!
Revelation 2:26-28 NLT “To all who are victorious, who obey me to the very end, TO THEM I WILL GIVE AUTHORITY OVER ALL THE NATIONS.  THEY WILL RULE THE NATIONS with an iron rod and SMASH THEM LIKE CLAY POTS.  THEY WILL HAVE THE SAME AUTHORITY I RECEIVED FROM MY FATHER, and I will also give them the morning star!”
Daniel 2:44 KJV “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but IT SHALL BREAK IN PIECES AND CONSUME ALL THESE KINGDOMS, and it shall stand for ever.”
Daniel 7:27 KJV “And THE KINGDOMS and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, SHALL BE GIVEN TO THE PEOPLE OF THE SAINTS OF THE MOST HIGH, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.”
Jesus’ kindred; those who have His blood, will rule the world forever! God has decreed it. So it shall be done!
WORKERS AGAINST GOD’S PLAN
God’s enemies have been working tirelessly to thwart God’s plan. Some among us have been tricked by evil spirits into believing they will create an everlasting kingdom of their own. To us that sounds like a joke. But not to them. Look at what the next passage says these evil people with the help of evil spirits will do:
Revelation 16:13-14,16 NLT “And I saw three EVIL SPIRITS THAT LOOKED LIKE FROGS leap from the mouths of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet.  THEY ARE DEMONIC SPIRITS who work miracles and GO OUT TO ALL THE RULERS OF THE WORLD TO GATHER THEM FOR BATTLE AGAINST THE LORD on that great judgment day of God the Almighty.  And THE DEMONIC SPIRITS GATHERED ALL THE RULERS AND THEIR ARMIES to a place with the Hebrew name Armageddon.”
Did you catch that? All the rulers of the world and their armies are being gathered together, or brought into one group, to battle against Almighty God Himself! And all of this is at the behest of demonic evil spirits. John said in his vision these evil spirits looked like frogs. Hmmmmmmm. That sort of reminds me of the description of some of these aliens we’ve been hearing about lately. Hmmmmmmm. Meditate on that.
2 Thessalonians 2:7-12 NET “For the HIDDEN POWER of lawlessness is already at work. However, the one who holds him back will do so until he is taken out of the way, 8 and then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will destroy by the breath of his mouth and wipe out by the manifestation of his arrival. 9 The arrival of the lawless one will be by Satan’s working with all kinds of miracles and signs and false wonders, 10 and with every kind of evil deception directed against those who are perishing, because they found no place in their hearts for the truth so as to be saved. 11 Consequently God sends on them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false. 12 And so all of them who have not believed the truth but have delighted in evil will be condemned.”
Yes, certain people have been secretly planning for a long time a grand showdown; a battle royal, against Almighty God! As we read Evil spirits THAT LOOKED LIKE FROGS will gather ALL THE RULERS OF THE WORLD and their armies together for this epic battle. These fools have been tricked into believing they really can beat God. The Lord just laughs:
Psalm 2:1-4 NIV “Why do the nations conspire and THE PEOPLES PLOT IN VAIN?  THE KINGS OF THE EARTH RISE UP AND THE RULERS BAND TOGETHER AGAINST THE LORD AND AGAINST HIS ANOINTED, saying,  “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”  THE ONE ENTHRONED IN HEAVEN LAUGHS; the Lord scoffs at them.”
Yes indeed the Lord laughs and scoffs at these fools.
MOBILIZING THE WORLD FORCE
In the media there’s much propaganda about one-worldism? All the religions coming together as one? All the governments of the world coming together as one? All the peoples coming together as one, etcetera? This message is in everything from TV commercials, to movies, sporting events, popular music, etcetera. And people are eating it up like spaghetti. They have to. They are being controlled by demons. On the surface these, “Come together as one,” messages look good. But there is a hidden agenda to them. God’s word explains where it is all leading to. We just read it: The whole world, and all the kings, and all their armies, are being gathered together for The Great Day Of God Almighty called Armageddon. Think about it: in order to get the whole world to fight against God you have to get the whole world on the same page, you think?
As you’ve read in the scriptures above all mankind is being helped (deceived) by evil spirits in this endeavor. ALL THE RULERS OF THE WORLD AND THEIR ARMIES are being mobilized against God and His anointed (Jesus Christ). No wonder they hate His people (true Christians) so much. The Bible book of Daniel talks about this as well. And it’s found in many other places in the scriptures. I know; this sounds like science fiction to some, and it sounds crazy or funny to others. But God is not one to be mocked. He predicted this would happen. So it shall be done. This, “MYSTERY OF INIQUITY,” is already at work. (2 Thessalonians 2:7 KJV)
Everything happening today was prophesied long ago including the final outcome. Repent while there is still time. Receive the truth. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. He is the only one who can get us out of this mess. Be transferred into His bloodline, into His everlasting kingdom before it is too late. Every one of God’s enemies will be utterly slaughtered on His great Day (Armageddon). And then they will have to spend eternity tormented in the lake of fire! (Revelation 21:8) These opponents of God and Jesus Christ are the seed or bloodline of the serpent; Satan the devil. And their judgment is rightfully deserved. Who’s blood are you?

Romans 7:14-25 NET “For we know that the law is spiritual – but I am unspiritual, sold into slavery to sin. For I don’t understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want – instead, I do what I hate. But if I do what I don’t want, I agree that the law is good. But now it is no longer me doing it, but sin that lives in me. For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For I want to do the good, but I cannot do it. For I do not do the good I want, but I do the very evil I do not want! Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer me doing it but sin that lives in me. So, I find the law that when I want to do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God in my inner being. But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? THANKS BE TO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.”
It’s not how good you are, it’s not how bad you are, but it’s the blood of Jesus that has power to make you holy and forgive you for your sins. Will we put faith in this blood? Or will we sulk in our failures? Will we try to obtain righteousness by being good? Or will we accept the truth that no one is righteous. (Romans 3:10)
It’s not how good you are, it’s not how bad you are, but it’s the blood of Jesus that has power to make you holy and forgive you for your sins. (1 John 1:7-9) Will we put faith in His blood? Will we accept God’s free gift? The payment is already made. The price has already been paid. Stop trying to pay the price through works. Stop beating yourself up because of your sins. Put faith in Jesus’ blood and experience the greatest miracle ever: salvation of your soul, being one with God, not guilty of ALL of your sins, and the unspeakable joy of a born again child of God who has eternal life! YAY!!!😃

Philippians 1:28 KJV “And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.”
Even when Satan attacks you God still wins.😊 When we look at persecution from this vantage point we see a sore loser trying to turn us into losers. The Devil is already defeated. When we remember this his attacks don’t carry the same weight. They don’t feel quite the same. We think of ourselves less and don’t get as upset about stuff. Hatred towards us is really hatred towards God. Hatred from a defeated devil; a sore loser, who can’t handle defeat is a good thing for us. We are so privileged to be hated for following Jesus Christ. (Matthew 5:10-12) It means we’re winners!😊 We are the children of God! When we shift our minds to the big picture our sufferings don’t hurt as much. They become easier to bear.
Not fearing our adversaries in the least is a definite sign to them of their destruction Philippians 1:28 says, “But to you of salvation, and that of God.” Now that’s walking in victory.
Why would we live in fear
as if we are the losers here?
The battle is the Lord’s, and the Lord has already won!😊 We sometimes forget that. Regardless of what happens to me God still wins.

Good morning my dear friends; thank you so much for stopping by and reading this post; I genuinely appreciate you. I trust you are well and still standing firm in your faith and your love for the Lord Jesus.
Recently I had an experience whereby I felt as though my prayer was rejected and denied, and I did not feel good about it. At that moment, it felt like a death experience, I prayed to God with loud cries, spoke in tongues that I did not even know I possessed, but things did not go according to my desires.
I felt very frustrated, and I was real fretting…

“They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” Revelation 12:11 NIV
The 3 keys to victory are:
#1 The Blood Of The Lamb (Know that your sins are forgiven)
#2 The Word Of Their Testimony (Share God’s message that there is salvation in none other than Jesus Christ)
#3 Live For God Not Intimidated By Death
In Revelation chapter 12 we read that war broke out in heaven. Satan and his angels are defeated by Michael and his angels. The Devil and his army lose their place in heaven. They were literally thrown out and cast down to earth. The devil is furious because of this. And because he knows his time is short. He then wages war against the remaining of God’s children. But the people of God defeat satan too. Let’s examine how they gained the victory.
Key #1. THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB
“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” Ephesians 1:7 NIV
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 NIV
Our victory comes first of all because Jesus shed his blood for us. He won the victory for us. Yes, God loves us that much. I know it’s hard to fathom at times how God could allow His son to go through what he went through to save us, but he did. By believing in Jesus Christ and what his death accomplished we are forgiven of ALL our sins. Believing in Jesus means too that we study the word of God and learn his teachings. Then we must follow them.
“For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant. In the case of a will, it is necessary to prove the death of the one who made it, because a will is in force only when somebody has died; it never takes effect while the one who made it is living. This is why even the first covenant was not put into effect without blood. When Moses had proclaimed every command of the law to all the people, he took the blood of calves, together with water, scarlet wool and branches of hyssop, and sprinkled the scroll and all the people. He said, “This is the blood of the covenant, which God has commanded you to keep.” In the same way, he sprinkled with the blood both the tabernacle and everything used in its ceremonies. In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. It was necessary, then, for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with human hands that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. Otherwise Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But he has appeared once for all at the culmination of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself. Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.” Hebrews 9:15-28 NIV
Jesus shed his own precious blood for you and me. His blood cleanses us from sin. We are redeemed to God. We are made suitable in His sight. Believe it. This first key to defeating the devil is the greatest gift of all: faith in the sacrifice of God’s own son.
Key #2. THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY
Often I hear people say they have a testimony. They then start talking about what bad sinners they used to be; you know, drug addicts, alcoholics, fornicators, etcetera. And that’s good they are no longer doing those things. But too often what happens next is not. They go into a very long spill of how they now do all these righteous deeds. They start tooting their own horn. (Matthew 6:1-4) As you listen to them they are testifying more about themselves than Jesus Christ. This is not what, “the word of their testimony,” in Revelation 12:11 means. What it’s saying is that the Saints defeated Satan by witnessing for Jesus. They testify to God’s message of salvation through none other than Christ
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 NIV
The victorious saints mentioned in Revelation 12:11 are more interested in testifying how good God is than how good they are. They tell their listeners how they can enjoy fellowship with God, be saved by accepting Jesus Christ, and receive everlasting life. They point people to Jesus plain and simple. Don’t get it twisted: I’m not saying you shouldn’t tell people all the wonderful things God has done for you. What I am saying is if that’s the only message you have when you open your mouth about God; what he’s done for YOU, how good he is to YOU, and nobody else but YOU, you’re missing the boat. People who babble on and on like this are not giving a testimony for Jesus. They are puffed up with self-righteous pride. Let us never be like that. Let people know what God can do for THEM. How he is so willing to forgive THEM for THEIR sins. Let THEM know how much He loves THEM. Show people the only way to God is through Jesus Christ. Focus the attention on HIM, and not ourselves. This is another key to defeating the devil.
Key #3. LIVE FOR GOD NOT INTIMIDATED BY DEATH
“The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death.” Isaiah 57:1-2 NIV
Throughout the centuries people have put their lives on the line for what they believe in. Harriet Tubman is highly respected for putting her life in harm’s way (and many others). She dedicated her life to helping runaway slaves achieve their freedom through a system called the Underground Railroad. I read that her face will appear on the new American twenty dollar bill. What an honor. Young people join the military everyday. They believe they are fighting for a good cause. They know there is a possibility they may not come home. Yet they join away. What bravery! So why is it strange to some that a person would become a Christian knowing this could mean an automatic death sentence or imprisonment for them? There are countries in the world today where churches must function underground, sort of like the Underground Railroad in Harriett Tubman’s day. Imagine being a Christian under these circumstances. There are some who believe that believing in Jesus will be outlawed worldwide one day. The Saints described as victorious in Revelation 12:11 serve Jesus Christ regardless of their circumstances. They do not disown him even when threatened by death. They are truly worthy to sit with Jesus on his eternal thrown. (Revelation 3:21)
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35-39 NIV
“For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:53-58 NIV
