No Weapon Formed Against You Shall Prosper


Isaiah chapter fifty, four verse seventeen. Actually. One morning when I was doing my walking God kept putting this on my heart. You wouldn't think get a whole four part series out of one scripture but praise God we did. No weapon but no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper. And every tongue. Horizon Gainst you in judgment. You shall show to be in the wrong this piece righteousness security and triumph over opposition is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, those and whom the ideal servant of the Lord. Is reproduced now we're gonNA take this scripture apart this weekend and We're going to do four different teachings from Liz. Each one will be different. A separate message in its own. But I want to start by just say a few things about this scripture. No weapon that's formed against you shall prosper every tongue that rises up against you in judgment which none of us enjoy that dewey nobody likes being judged or criticized. Is showed to be in the wrong but on the practical side for Christians Life, how do we show those who judge and criticize us that they're wrong? Do we ourselves. Do we. Get Mad at them and say equally bad things about them. Now none of that works does it You know the Bible says that when Jesus was insulted, he didn't offer insult and return. When he was abused he didn't abuse in return, but he trusted himself and everything to him who judges fairly. So the bottom line is the way that we show those who judge and criticize us that they're wrong about us. is to behave in a godly way. Instead of letting the devil did through them caused us to act like him. I must say that again. What we're so tempted to do is We're not gonNA talk to me like that. If you think you're going, do that then I'm going to do this to you I'm GonNa. Cut you out of my life. I'm going to tell everybody what you did to me. Well, we're doing when we do that is. First of all, we don't war with human beings. The Bible tells us that that our war is not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers of wickedness in high places. Now, that doesn't relieve people any of us of our responsibility to not let the enemy work through us, but the bottom line is, is all evil everywhere in the world all bad things that happen. The source of those is. An entity that the Bible calls the Devil Satan, the evil one, the deceiver, the wicked one on and on and on. We don't like to talk about the devil who likes to talk about the devil but the sad thing is in some churches because talking about the devils a little unpleasant, they talk about the devil and I was in a charge for a Lotta years and went on a regular basis and I never even realized that the devil was real. I thought he was some kind of Halloween character put on. Red Suit carried a pitchfork and had a long tail and that was the devil I mean, I, knew that there was a devil but I didn't know that he could be our was a real problem in my life and so the first thing you WanNa do when somebody judges and criticises you is pray for them. Because they need an understanding a revelation of how dangerous it is to judge and criticize other people, which is a very dangerous thing to do I know none of you do it. So I don't need stop and have a sermon about that right here. But I'm just throwing it out there. It's a very dangerous thing to do because the Bible says that the way you judge others you'll be judged in the same white, the white you criticize others you'll be criticized in the same way. So always remember that if you want. The, benefits of this scripture to work for you see a lot of times we read a scripture and we wanna take the benefits. But we don't want to do the part. That we need to do to have those benefits. You know we have. We have a bad habit of just picking parts out of. Well, no weapon formed against me shall prosper the Bible says that. The devils under my feet. He's defeated no weapon formed get. You shall prosper every tongue that rises against you judgment. You shall show it to be in the wrong but the way you do it is by behaving in a godly way. So they can't find fault with you. Rather than leading what the enemies doing through them cause you to turn around and act just like the enemy to
