In John 14:6a, Yeshua said, I am the way, the truth and the life. Yeshua is speaking with authority, echoing the same description of Himself as HaShem stated in Exodus 3:14, where He said, I am who I am — tell them the 'I am' has sent me to you.
So many people these days are being attacked by the enemy and don’t even realize it. Some are depressed, some believe they can never change, some believe they are weak spiritually and have no right to even ask for help, some believe the enemy is winning in their lives – he is holding them down, holding them back and defeating them, they believe negative thoughts about themselves that he convinces them are true. Remember the enemy is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44).
The Truth is, it is time to wake up and go to the Word of truth. Fight the good fight. We are more than conquerors through Him who strengthens us. We are not at the enemies’ mercy.
Remember what Yeshua did when He was in the wilderness said:
Matthew 4:3–4 tells us, The tempter came and said to Him, If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread. But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. The enemy was demeaning the very Son of G-d and tempting Him, so we can’t be surprised when he uses the same tactic on us, but Yeshua defeated him with the Word. This is our weapon too.
He's given us weapons to fight back with and here are just a couple of those weapons: Start where Yeshua started with TRUTH – In the spiritual realm we fight with the belt of truth. Truth is His Word. Ephesians 6:14 Stand firm, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist. Notice the position we are to take – we stand – we do not assume a shrinking, defeated position. We stand because our waist – the core of our being – is being protected by Truth – and speak the Word OF TRUTH right out loud to the enemy. He will flee just as he did in the wilderness, because the Truth of the Word is All Powerful. Keep speaking the Word of Truth.
Ephesians 6:14b and put on the breastplate of righteousness… We have to remember who we are – we are dressed in His righteousness and we continually – day by day – are pursuing righteousness as we live our lives. This does not mean we will do everything perfectly, but when we make a mistake, we get back up and keep up the pursuit of being like Him. Notice the breastplate covers your heart. The enemy wants to destroy your heart with hurt and brokenness – But he cannot as long as we remember.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1 and If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more. Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends.
These are all the TRUTHS OF THE WORD. We keep speaking them every time the enemy tries to bring us down.
HIS WORD IS ALL POWERFUL – HIS WORD IS HIM – HIS WORD WILL WIN! YOU ARE A VICTOR WHEN YOU PROCLAIM HIS WORD OVER YOUR LIVES! NEVER STOP!
