The Devil Is Our Enemy Not Our Brothers And Sisters

Post by GreatFulServant on Sun Feb 05, 2012 5:59 pm

I was fighting against 3 or four people. I had a rifle in my hand pressed against a women's neck , the others were across the road in bushes. I told her to back off or I would shoot, knowing that I was still going to shoot her once she stepped back. Then we saw an army dressed up in German uniforms coming up a hill to fight against us. I asked her and the others if they had guns. Next thing we were on the other side of the road shooting at the German Soldiers. I was hitting two at of a time and they were falling down. It seemed like they were not dead but just temporarily being stopped. Even though we were stopping some the army was getting closer and closer. I stood up and said JESUS and a white light flooded the dream and I woke up knowing that the light of the Lord stopped them.

Looking for additional thoughts but my take and lesson on this is. The women represented people i.e. the body of Christ that are close to me. The rifle is indicating how Christians can use carnal weapons envy, strife,jealousy, etc against each. But as we realize more and more who the true enemy is we will unite and fight against the devil and his army, not each other. With the people only temporarily be stopped with the rifle. That showed that we do not war in the flesh but in the spirit to defeat the enemy. Some times we can temporarily get our way when we use anger, steal, or deception, but long term, these tactics will eventually catch up to us.

I had been studying David and his mighty men and their love and zeal for God, for each other, and even for those out side of their group. David said in II Samuel 2 of Jonathan and (Saul too) that they were lovely and pleasant in their lives. They were swifter then eagles and stronger then lions. Saul clothed the people with scarlet, and other delights, as well as ornaments of gold. He said Jonathan was very pleasant, and his love was wonderful toward him, passing the love of women. Its amazing how David stuck up for Saul and how he did not want his dieing to be announced among the heathens because then the daughter of the Philistines would rejoice. Is not this what sinners do when they hear Christians come against each other and make their faults public. In II Samuel 21 David got tired in battle and his men pulled him out of battle so the Giants would not slay him. After that it records how some of David's men slain those Giants and the word says in verse 22 “These four were born to the giant in Gath, and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.” Both the men and David got the credit, even though his men spared him from the giants and David stayed behind. David received credit for these victories because he had trained these men and imparted the life of God to them. This was also true when David and his men recaptured all that was taken from them in Ziglag even though some stayed behind because they were faint. They all shared in the recovered goods. It truly is a team effort in the body.

I know on this forum I have learned and have had things imparted to me from some of you. When I take this knowledge and impartation to help others you too will be rewarded. Think about Mia how she has started all of this and the rewards she will get because of how we strive to help others . I think everything that is done on this forum to bless others she gets a reward for.

I thought I would share this because it has really blessed me and this Sunday the theme of the message was to be like Jesus and pray for others and not criticize them. Jesus is forever making intercession for us, but on the other had in Revelation 12 it says Satan is doing the opposite of Jesus and is continually accusing the bretheren.

You said several things which are inaccurate. You have not given a complete picture of what is going on in the bible, who God is and who Jesus Christ is. You said this "I thought I would share this because it has really blessed me and this Sunday the theme of the message was to be like Jesus and pray for others and not criticize them." First of all Jesus Christ didn't hesitate to call the Pharisees hypocrites several times. He called them serpents and call them a generation of vipers. In Matthew 23. Jesus Christ had very strong words for the Pharisees.

Matthew 23 verse 23 to 39:

[23] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
[24] Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
[25] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
[26] Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
[27] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
[28] Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
[29] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
[30] And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
[31] Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
[32] Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
[33] Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
[34] Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
[35] That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
[36] Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
[37] O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
[38] Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.


When people conducted commerce in the temple Jesus Christ got angry. John Chapter 2 verse 13-16:

[13] And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,
[14] And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
[15] And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
[16] And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.



Exodus 34 states:

[1] And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.
[2] And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.
[3] And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.
[4] And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone.
[5] And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.
[6] And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
[7] Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.


Exodus 23 verse 20-22

[20] Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
[21] Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.
[22] But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

Your response is quiet clear. You read what the bible says but you and everyone else will ignore what the bible is saying.

You have noooooooooo idea what type of Christian life I live and believe. I will be blunt with you. When you criticize me that is one thing, because I am not above being criticized, quite frankly I have it coming at times. But then you go on and say "and everyone else" red flags go way up. The above statements are mine alone and one other person happen to comment on them. Why bring everyone else into it,and criticize them for what I said. When you are saying everyone else, does that include the other 3256 members of this site and the rest of the Christians in the world are ignoring what the bible is saying? Sounds like Elijah when he said he was the only one and the Lord set him straight and said there were 7000 others too that were serving him.

You said this "I thought I would share this because it has really blessed me and this Sunday the theme of the message was to be like Jesus and pray for others and not criticize them." You also said other things in regards to the word of God.

How can you make the above statement about Jesus Christ and the word of God? The mere fact that you responded in the way you did show that you don't care what the bible said Jesus Christ did.

Red flags should go up, I speak about what Obama is doing to hurt the body of Christ and no one is saying anything. Who cares on this forum? Who cares that young children are being taught in schools to accept homosexuality? Is anyone expressing any concern?

Butterfly,

I would appreciate it if we can keep our passion tempered. We do not judge others......we leave the truth to be shown by God. None of us are perfect. This includes you and I. So from now on I would ask that you do not criticize others on this forum. If you do not wish to follow the rules of this forum I will understand but know that what you do has consequences.

GreatFulServant has been on this forum for a while now and has proved to have good fruit. I do not wish to see that squelched because of bashing and accusations. I feel an apology is needed here.

I totally understand your point of view and do not wish to keep you from expressing it but it must be done in an appropriate fashion. I will give you a warning....this is the second time I have seen you attack a person on the site. I was the first...no big deal...I know your heart....but not everyone does. If this happens again I will be suspending your privileges to post on the site.

Love in Jesus,

Connie
