The Daily Word of Righteousness

Preparing the Army of God, #21

And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window. (Joshua 2:21)

Every believer must abide "under the blood of the Lamb." We overcome the devil, the accuser of the brothers, by faith in the blood of the Lamb. When Jesus descends from Heaven He will be clothed with a robe dipped in His own blood. The army of God always follows the blood of the righteous Jesus.

And they went, and came unto the mountain, and abode there three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way, but found them not. (Joshua 2:22)

So it is that Satan has pursued the Church, attempting to prevent the forming of Christ in His Body (Revelation 12:4,13). He has pursued the saints "throughout all the way" of history for nearly two thousand years.

He has not "found" them. He never will "find" them; for the Church is being built by the Lord Jesus Christ and it is impossible for the forces of Hell to prevail against it. The Church will be victorious in the end because God Almighty has decreed it shall be victorious. Jesus shall rule until every enemy has been put beneath His feet.

Jesus is Lord. At His name, every knee will bow in subjection, of creatures in Heaven, on the earth, and in the spiritual prisons under the earth's surface. Every creature of God will confess that Christ is Lord.

So the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all things that befell them: (Joshua 2:23)

As we stated previously, the two spies are a type of the two witnesses of Revelation, Chapter Eleven. The two witnesses are the remnant of God's people, anointed with a double portion of the Holy Spirit, who shall, in the last days, bear witness of that which will take place when the Lord returns and the saints take the Kingdom (Daniel, Chapter Seven).

Today there are people who are walking with God. The Lord has brought them into some of the experiences that are just ahead for the Church. They are beginning to bear witness to the Church of what the Church is about to enter, assuring the Lord's people that God loves them, that they indeed are His people, and that Christ is in control of all things and is leading them to certain victory.

God has scouts and spies. They serve as spiritual "eyes" for the main party of believers just as a wagon train or an army on the march has need of scouts.

And they said unto Joshua, Truly the Lord hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us. (Joshua 2:24)

Those whom God has brought into deeper experiences in Christ are bringing back to us the good news that Satan has been delivered into our hands. The victory was gained on the cross two thousand years ago. The demons will flee at the name of Jesus when we are walking in the Spirit and in faith in God.

We do not have to fear the devil. Christ has given us authority over all the power of the enemy. We are to press forward, as Jesus leads us, until even the memory of Satan and his followers has been destroyed out of the earth.

To be continued.
