Counter Measures

(Melissa Gabler) The initial hit from the enemy might require you to go on the defense, but you never stay there.  I will explain this in a tactical way.  I have been taking self-defense classes for over four years. One of my instructors recently said, “We teach you to defend yourself one time.  We will never teach you to stay in a defensive position.  You must counter, control, and finish the fight.”  Well, my goodness.  What strategy!  After you defend yourself one time from your enemy’s attack you then strike back with the weapons and skill God has given you.  You can’t stay just in the defensive position.  You propel forward because He already set up your counter measures and you are well armed, and able!  What are your counter measures?  Number one: Scripture. Number two: your Holy Spirit-breathed prophetic words.  Other than that, whatever God has personally set up for you.  Ask Him to show you and open your eyes to see!  Don’t get bogged down in the fear of it.  Look for His provision because it is already there.  Isaiah 54:17-“no weapon formed against you shall prosper” is not an afterthought.  It is solid forethought!

Big Bad Christian Crusher?

There is no weapon in all of hell’s arsenal that is marked “Sure ‘Nuff Christian Killer.” “No weapon forged against you will prevail (Isa.54:17).”  There is no diabolical demon on the lower level of hell behind a great steel and concrete door marked “Big Bad Christian Crusher.” There just simply is no such thing. Indeed he has come to “steal, to kill and to destroy (Jn.10:10)” but he cannot unless we fall for his propaganda and give in to his deception. (Marty Gabler from his book “Sheep Have Short Legs”.)

God Equips Us For The Weapon

While thinking about recent events I had to deal with, the scripture Isaiah 54:17 “no weapon formed against you will prosper” came up again. This time, however, I saw it differently. I think a lot of times this is used as a defensive scripture when really it is an offensive scripture! God equips us for the weapon BEFORE, not after, it is formed against us. The reason the weapon doesn’t prosper is because He already set countermeasures in place prior to its launch. He already equipped you with everything necessary to walk out of this battle in tact. That, my friends, is an offensive scripture loaded for battle! —Melissa Gabler (Melissa will be speaking on “Prophetic Lifestyle” at DREAMS VISIONS PROPHECY 2017 Sept.22-24)

Weapons Formed Against You

Don’t you just dread those times in life when it seems that every step you take is uphill? May the Lord grant that seasons of weariness and relentless opposition over your life break and dissipate like the morning mist.  (Isa.54:17, Amp)  “But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, TRIUMPH OVER OPPOSITION] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.”  We are praying you discover daily that absolutely no weapon formed against you is prospering.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

Strategic Dreams

“Indeed God speaks once, or twice, {yet} no one notices it. In a dream, a vision of the night, when sound sleep falls on men, while they slumber in their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction,” Job 33:14-16.(NAU)  I am continually amazed at the strategic dreams God SleepDreamsends in the night. I consider strategic dreams to be those timely telegrams that confirm direction or give instruction or release insight and understanding about our lives and circumstances.  These dreams can bring answers when we need them as well as bring answers to questions we don’t even know to ask.    

Strategic dreams and visions can become un-carnal weapons in our lives.  “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,” (NKJ) 2 Cor 10:3-4. We can access God’s arsenal of un-carnal weapons by seeking Him.  We become skillful with His weapons as we learn His ways. We learn His ways by paying attention to the truth He reveals and by submitting to His order and following through on His directions.  Our Creator’s creativity is unlimited!  He has unique, customized weapons in His arsenal that will counter any weapon ever formed against us, (Isa 54:17).
