This is one . You might have to think about it. Let it digest. This is looking at things from a different perspective. To uncover the strategies.
When two swords meet at the hands of two warriors in battle. And they are jockeying for position and leverage. What are they doing? Trying to find the weakness and trying to use their strengths. You hear the grunt and you see the intense look on their faces.
There is a call from 100 feet away. Daddyyy helppp . One of the Warriors hears his child calling for help and takes his attention off his enemy for one second too many…..
His enemy takes his sword and cuts his head off. One swoop of a blow. His weakness. He loved his son and his cry pierced him before the sword could ever come close.
The strength of his enemy. Nothing to brag about. He had no mercy on his enemies. He would take any advantage he could get.
Release the child. He says. The wolves can raise him. What is for dinner?
THE POWER OF SATAN/JUDAS AND THE WEAKNESS OF GOD
Something that we do not think of enough. Just how powerful Judas was. Have ever heard of that said before. Judas was perhaps the most powerful man in the world. Who else can say that I killed GOD? Judas had the power of position and proximity. He had information that very few other people in all of human history had.
The location of GOD everywhere he went. His secrets. His weakness.
You see . When GOD decided to allow Satan to fall from heaven instead of immediately locking Satan up. God showed his weakness. God is patient. God does not like to waste. God is resourceful . GOD is confident.
These are GOD ‘s weakness. LOLLL.
The weakness of JESUS. He gives everyone a chance. He loves everyone. He saw the big picture. I came to go the cross. No one takes my life I lay it down. 🙂 . JESUS weakness…. He obeyed the WORD of GOD. It is written that I will be betrayed and will make my bed with sinners. I will fulfill the prophecy.
The weakness of JESUS. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. That we would not perish but have eternal life.
ADAM AND EVE:
Satan was put in a great position in the garden of Eden. These two love birds in the great big beautiful world all by themselves growing more and more confident every day. Naming animals tending to the Garden in the great perfection just like GOD. Just like daddy!!!!
They must of thought they knew everything. They must of gotten to comfortable. They must of had it too good. When people think that they have everything. When they think that nothing could ever go wrong. When they feel too comfortable. When they get spoiled. The let down their guard.
They get curious and greedy. So something other than perfection comes a long. The only thing in the world that was not perfect was the Serpent. Everything else GOD said was good. You get tired of perfection.
That was GOD ‘s weakness. He was PERFECT and so was his children. They need to see what it was like on the other side. Satan was perfectly positioned to give them exactly what they needed. Satan ‘s power was his position.
EVE USES THE POWER OF PROXIMITY ON ADAM:
To make things even worst. The power of Satan transferred to Eve. She did the same thing that Satan did. Convinced Adam to do what he knew was wrong. But she was so close to Adam that he trusted her. He wanted to please her. She looked fine. She had not died. What was GOD talking about when we eat of the tree we will die?
Yeah I will take some of the fruit Eve honey.
Be careful. Because it is the people who are closest to us. That Satan will corrupt. That is why Joshua said. FOR ME IN MY HOUSE WE SHALL SERVE THE LORD. I believe he was saying. We have already made our decision. Now you people of Israel you have to make yours….. lolll
But what if Joshua ‘s house was divided? Some wanted to serve GOD and some did not. What if the Israelite were divided. Some wanted to serve GOD and some did not. You have a major dilemma. That is called a Civil War. Those who are closes to you are the most dangerous and their actions are the most powerful.
Satan uses his ability to get close to cause maximum damage. GOD ‘s weakness is he gave us a family and a church to bless us. This is the weakness of man and of GOD.
POSITION IS POWERFUL
You see. When Satan can get a good position. Like a dolly. You know you can ‘t pick up a Refrigerator by yourself. The Refrigerator looks at you and laughs. But if I can get a dolly and put that dolly in just the right spot that Refrigerator has no chance.
So when you have a bad apple. You better remove him or her from the good apples. Because the power is in the proximity. Some people. You are better off not married. If one person wants to destroy everything. And the other wants to bless everything.
UNDERSTAND AND FIND THE WILL OF GOD: WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE
If JESUS and Adam fell. In their weakness. We must be very careful to learn about the Power of Satan. Know what your enemies strong points are. Know what your weakness is. Don ‘t put them together on your own.
GOD does this for his purposes. But you make sure that it is GOD putting the power of Satan next to the weakness of GOD.
THE POWER OF LUCIFER AND THE WEAKNESS OF GOD
In heaven GOD created Lucifer to be the most beautiful site in heaven other than GOD himself. GOD put him charge of much. GOD gave him a job that many admired. Hey there goes Lucifer again doesn’t he look so nice.
He has such an important job. GOD really trust him. I admire him. He works so hard. He is such a perfectionist. He has so much responsibility.
The power of Lucifer. He was giving much. He had a close proximity with GOD. So much that he carried the Light of GOD as he flew across the heavens. Loookk There goes Lucifer and there goes GOD. Looks like they are almost one the same.
Lucifer felt pretty good about himself. Don ‘t I look so good. So powerful. Look at me. So many people look up to me. Hmmm. I could be GOD. Yes I could why not?
The power of Lucifer was he was close to GOD. So Close to GOD he had so much access.
The weakness of GOD. He set Lucifer up for blessings. He trusted him. He blessed him.
In this Christian day. We act as if we have all the power in the world. And we forget that the Satanic Occult world also has much power. Power that we have to contend with. Power that we need to understand. Power that we must not underestimate.
For we are not ignorant of Satan ‘s devices. We understand his schemes. Thank you GOD for exposing Satan. And by following the precepts of GOD in your WORD. Like the Apostle Paul said we gain Authority through CHRIST!!!! See 2 Corinthians 2: 1-11
While we understand the power of Satan we must also understand our own Weakness. What is purpose of our Weakness. What is the purpose of the power of Satan? What is the purpose of the power of proximity that GOD has allowed Satan to have in your life?
People think. Wow Satan is so close to you. You must of done something wrong. Maybe. Maybe not. Wow Satan hit you with a hard blow. They have no idea what your purpose is and what GOD ‘s purpose is with the power and proximity that GOD gave him. See Job.
For we see through glass half way… 1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Be not quick to judge. But be quick to investigate and find out more information.
Thank you JESUS for the purpose that you created in the world. Thank you JESUS that you have made us as sheep and laid us before wolves. Because we are now like you. It pleased you to bruise JESUS ole GOD.
You bruised yourself.
You gave Satan power . That was your weakness upon the Earth. But through the best shot that Satan had. Hmmmm. Your Power shines through. Resurrected and Perfected!!!! For the weakness of GOD is greater than the power of man.
1 Corinthians 1
The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God. 19As the Scriptures say,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise
and discard the intelligence of the intelligent.”e
20So where does this leave the philosophers, the scholars, and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made the wisdom of this world look foolish. 21Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe. 22It is foolish to the Jews, who ask for signs from heaven. And it is foolish to the Greeks, who seek human wisdom. 23So when we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it’s all nonsense.
24But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles,f Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.
26Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthyg when God called you. 27Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28God chose things despised by the world,h things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 29As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.
30God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. 31Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the LORD.”i
