STAND FAST

Posted on November 15, 2021 at 4:10 AM

                                                                            




GPAN The following excerpt was taken from The Triumphant Church by Kenneth E. Hagin:

            Stand Fast in One Spirit

 Only let your conversation [your manner of life and conduct] be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that YE STAND FAST IN ONE SPIRIT, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel. (Phil. 1:27) UNITY

 

Standing in faith and standing in God's grace are mighty fortresses against the devil. But the Bible also says we are to stand fast in one spirit. Strife and discord always open a door to the devil (James 3:16). When you stand strong in unity and forbid Satan to bring strife and division, you prevent him from gaining any ground in you.


Believers will probably never see every little thing just exactly alike because we are all at various stages of spiritual growth and development. But just because we disagree on minor issues doesn't mean we can't be in one spirit and one accord. Believers stand strong against the enemy by being in one spirit and by not allowing division and strife. Even in the face of differences, believers must learn to stand fast in one spirit if they are going to maintain a strong defense against the devil.

 

                                            




If you are standing fast in one spirit you can disagree without being disagreeable. Walking in love closes the door to the devil. When you get over into the Spirit and you walk in love, many issues you thought were so important don't seem to be so important any more. We shouldn't let little issues divide us. Be one - stand fast in one spirit 

                                      Stand Fast in the Lord


These words are so needed in today's pandemc separating world. The devil is all into breaking up loving relationships, and he is succeeding. As we lose the support of people we care about, we are less able to cope with problems and stress in our lives. When we look at God's Word we see that His main  message is love. With love we can stand together in unity!

 

Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so STAND FAST IN THE LORD, my dearly beloved. (Phil 4:1)

 

What else does the believer do to take his stand against Satan? The Bible says we are to stand fast in the Lord. What does that mean? The answer is found in Ephesians 6:10.

 Finally, my brethren, be STRONG IN THE LORD, and [be strong] IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT. (Ephesians 6:10)

Taking our stand against Satan includes taking our rightful position in Christ. Did you notice in Ephesians 6:10 that the Bible says we are to be strong in two areas:

Be strong IN THE LORD, and

Be strong IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.



To be strong in the Lord, you'll have to be strong in His Word. But what is the power of God's might? The power of God's might is the Holy Ghost. (You Holy Spirit be the power that leads my life) Go through the New Testament and notice how many times "power" is mentioned in connection with the Holy Spirit. Some of these verses ie:

Acts 10:38 (Amplified Bible) How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [Holy] Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and, in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by [the power of] the devil, for God was with Him.


Romans 15:13 (The Message) And Isaiah's word: 
   There's the root of our ancestor Jesse, breaking through the earth and growing tree tall, 
   Tall enough for everyone everywhere to see and take hope. . .  so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!


Romans 15:13 (Amp) May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.

And Jesus returned in the POWER of the SPIRIT into Galilee...(Luke 4:14)

But you shall receive POWER - ABILITY, EFFICIENCY and MIGHT - when the HOLY SPIRIT has come upon you...(Acts 1:18 AMP)

 

                                                                    


You won't be able to be strong in the power of God's might without being filled with the Holy Spirit and without praying. Part of taking a victorious stand against the devil is to be filled to overflowing with the Holy Spirit. You won't be able to stand strong against the devil as an empty vessel. 

 


Holy God, You are my Protector. Surround me with Your shield. Indwelling Holy Spirit to You I submit this day; take hold of this day and guide me through it.


My frlends, it is glorious to have God Himself indwelling us, helping guide us through our problems, situations, relationships, etc. I strongly encourage you to seek to find God and truly know Him!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
