7 God truths that will blast the enemy today

A sobering reality that comes with our goal to #LiveSticky as Christ followers online is being wise to the enemy’s schemes. You know the score, beloved. The last thing the enemy wants to see is Jesus and His tribe of twenty-first-century, Internet-savvy followers gaining ground online. The enemy turns up the volume, complicates the simple, and amplifies the yammering so we don’t know which way is up. He is the cultivator of fear, paranoia, and intimidation. He is the master of confusion and the king of anxiety. His goal is the same as it was in the garden.

The enemy sets out each day to silence God’s message of hope and genuine relationship with His children. But you don’t have to pick up the lies the enemy is putting down. God’s Truth is your weapon as you log on each day.

Lies of the enemy

  • You are in the minority in the online world.
  • You are outvoted, outnumbered, and outranked here on earth.
  • Your faith is obsolete tradition rather than the God-breathed origin of humankind.
  • Your voice isn’t relevant.
  • No one is listening to you.
  • Engaging in social media is too hard, and you can’t make a difference.
  • You’re living in end times, and the online world is too lost to change.

God’s Truth

  1. Your inheritance includes the riches of heaven, and you belong to the holy majority (1 Peter 1:4; 1 John 4:4). You + God = a majority.
  2. As God’s child, you’ve been given dominion and power over this earth (Genesis 1:28).
  3. The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it (including the Internet).
  4. The voice of Truth—His voice through you—is desperately needed in online conversations (Psalm 78:6; Acts 1:8).
  5. You carry a message that has transformed every generation since the beginning of time (John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 4).
  6. Everywhere you turn online, ears (and hearts) are burning for truth and hope. The world is morally and spiritually starving to death (Isaiah 1; Matthew 5:14; Luke 5:31; Romans 5:8; 8:7–8; Philippians 2:15).
  7. We win (Job 19:25; Acts 1:11; 2 Thessalonians 2:8).

So get in the game beloved, there’s no turning back, sitting the bench, or asking the ref for a time out. God has given you have everything you need for triumph and promises that through Him you can do all things. It’s your responsiblity to influence the online conversation and tell a clicking, texting, searching generation that they can’t google their eternal life.

    I
    really love the wisdom in this scripture:

    Psalm
    62: 5-6

    My
    soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation
    are from Him. 6 He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my
    Fortress, I shall not be moved.

     

    Sometimes
    we “do” instead of “being”!  When I am
    doing, my earthly expectations are looking for a response for what I have
    done.  When I don’t get that response
    that I think I “should” get, then I get disappointed and discouraged.  Online ministry must be done without an
    earthly perspective, because a “kingdom perspective” tells us that the Word of
    God never returns void and everything we are doing matters eternally.  So I put my expectations in God’s hands when
    it comes to online ministry and the things I “do” are done by His leading and unto
    HIM.  I don’t look for a Retweet or a
    Plus One, I look to Jesus, my expectation is in HIM as He takes my ministry and
    flows His kingdom purposes through it.   He
    is the Rock of my online ministry; He is my defense and my fortress as I serve
    HIM online.  I don’t need to know what my
    hit numbers are on my site, how many Retweets I got, how many plus ones I got,
    how many comments I got… what I need most is Jesus and my expectations that are
    put in HIM, never disappoint me. Omnipresent Reality Check! He is always with
    me and for me!  He is my Rock!

    @twitter-212228421:disqus … as are you sweet brother. You light up our Twitter stream with encouragement each day . . . which sends the ENEMY running! Let it be known by our word and deed that we are TAKING BACK the land for our Father. We will not be part of the trap—we will rely on the Holy Sprit’s power in us to change things on this banged up planet for the GLORY of God. :)

    When you know that when you die, you will be sent wherever God wills, it matters very little where he sends you in this life, _even if no one on Earth believes what you do_ (selah)
