There is a contention; know from where the contention comes. My people perish for lack of knowledge. Are you looking in the natural for a spiritual solution? Victory comes when you know the truth of where the battle is raging. David went to the place of contention. His gaze was fixed upon the target of contention; his resolve sure.
Be adamant, my people, to look beyond what you see in the natural. It is not this thing and that thing; this person or that person. The enemy plots and schemes. He comes as a roaring lion against My Plans. Come before your enemy in the name of the Lord. Come in full battle array armed as I have instructed. Come armed with My Truth, My Salvation, My Faith, My Peace, My Righteousnss, and My two-edged sword, The Word. Battle the true enemy and not each other.
When lies come from a person’s mouth can he not be led by the father of lies? Pray one for another that you may be healed. I say you contend with the wrong enemy. Have I not told you that you wrestle not against flesh and blood but you, my people, wrestle against each other. It ought not to be so. I have called for peace and love to the brethren; walking in faith.
When you see a drunkard are you not able to see who his enemy has become? When you gossip and backbite have you not added to this man’s burden by cursings from your mouth? Have you become a pit of vipers and a bone of contention? Have you not become haughty and prideful in your thinking as you look down at this one in bondage? As I wrote in the sand the sins of the accusers, they were no longer able to throw the stones that were prepared for the adulterer.
While you bicker and backbite, the enemy takes his spoil. While you accuse and curse, the enemy has his victory over you. David went straight to the true enemy to affect the victory, walking away with his head on a platter.
I AM the Captain of the Host and I call forth for you to follow Me in victory. Greater works for greater victory for the days are evil.
“Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
