Opposition (Of Course)

It is obvious that the men who joined David at Hebron for the purpose of “turning the kingdom” were well aware of and well prepared for opposition and resistance: Now these are the numbers of the divisions equipped for war, who came to David at Hebron, to turn the kingdom of Saul to him, ManUpAgainstWallaccording to the word of the LORD (1Chr 12:23). They didn’t wish themselves someplace else; they adjusted to the times and accomplished what could not be easily attained. What God has ordained always has been and will be most certainly resisted by the kingdom of darkness. Though we fight from a position of victory, the kingdom of darkness will continue to resist until the final manifestation of our victory that has come through the cross of Christ. Advancing the Kingdom of God (any aspect or all aspects of it) has never been without resistance and never will be until that day. In every generation there are scores of people who get discouraged and despair because of adverse circumstances and wish they were not living on the planet God ordained them effective on, but Jahweh is no less faithful in this moment of history than He was in 2Co 4:9: we know that God knows what to do; we’ve been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn’t left our side. We live in this time in history because God ordained it so and He also ordained the days to come for His Name’s sake (Ps23:3;106:8;1Jn2:12;3Jn:1:7) even if there is opposition we must come to understand and gain knowledge to overcome (1Chr 12:32). Resistance takes different forms at different stages of history and is dealt with at various intensity levels at various times but we still win battle after battle and conflict after conflict.

Contradict Works of Darkness

BLK n WHT
As the people of God assemble today, may they receive light from
the Word of God so that they might be enabled to confront and
contradict the works of darkness that defeat them, their family
and those that God sets in their path.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness
has not defeated it.” (Jn.1:5, ERV)

Stress Puts Off a Fragrance

Wolf Nose
Fear leads to stress and stress puts off a fragrance 
that the spirit of infirmity is looking for. — Melissa Gabler

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because
fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made
perfect in love.” (1Jn.4:18, NKJV)

Those Who Understand The Times

“The time in which we live requires people who can, by divine skill and impartation, read the times, read nations and political winds.” (Adam Clarke) Sundial in SandSuch were and are the sons of Issachar: 1Chr 12:32 “And of the sons of Issachar, men who understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their kinsmen were at their command.” (NAS) Concerning this passage Fausett offers a noteworthy bit of advice to recall: “Jerusalem fell because she knew not the time of her visitation.” He then goes on to urge us [like Issachar] we should help to transfer the kingdom from Satan to its coming rightful Lord (Lk.19:12-27, 44).” “It appears that in their wisdom, experience, and skill, their brethren had the fullest confidence; and nothing was done but by their direction and advice.” (Clarke) Lest we all simply give these poignant statements a courteous nod and just move right on to the next Sunday School lesson, we must realize that the presence of and interaction with such persons is crucial at this time. Their presence and active voice are required in all the seven mountains of culture (1. Church 2. Family 3. Education 4. Government/Law 5. Media/Communications 6. Arts/Entertainment 7. Business/Finance).  Further import is that, not only are they much in want, they are possible; and it must surely dawn on us at some point that they must be us, (all of us) and not some untouchable Christian celebrities. (1Jn2:20 you have an unction; the “you” there is plural; “unction” is divine enablement) The Issachar enablement and advantage are available for this day and days to come—available to you and I. The enablement of the sons of Issachar is most important, not because God is not doing anything and we must think of something for Him to do, but because we must know which of the things that God is doing fall within our metron (sphere of influence) and how we are to go about doing them.

The Lord’s Hand on School Teachers

StudentsAndTeacher
May the Lord Most High keep His powerful hand upon our school teachers
in this coming year. May He minister to them their importance in our culture
and bless them for giving of themselves to our children. May He protect them
and make them righteously effective beyond all logical measures for the
children’s future and the future of our nation.

“…They are to give good counsel and be teachers of what is
right and noble,” (Titus 2:3, Amp)
