The Daily Word of Righteousness

Preparing the Army of God, #22

And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them. (Deuteronomy 7:24)

"Truly, the Lord hath delivered into our hands all the land." He who overcomes will inherit all things. Christ is abiding at the right hand of God, waiting until God makes His enemies His footstool. We are waiting there with Jesus, far above all other authority and power. We are coheirs with Him of the nations and the uttermost parts of the earth.

In the present hour the nations and the farthest reaches of the earth are being held in the chains of slavery to unclean spirits. The Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary gained the Divine authority to forgive and receive to Himself any person of His choice, as the Father directs Him. As the chosen individual receives Christ and continues to place his trust in Christ throughout his lifetime on the earth, Satan and his angels have no more claim on him. The believer has received the fullness of the authority to become a son of God.

The Lord has delivered into our hands spiritual control over the creation of God, as Christ directs us. We are the judges of men and angels. All things have been delivered to Jesus by the Father, including all judgment of angels and men. Jesus shares the Kingdom He has been given with whomever He chooses to share it.

Ours is the greatest opportunity of all time. We have been invited by the Lord Jesus to share the Kingdom of God with Him, the dominion over all the works of God's hands. In order to enter this tremendous inheritance we are required to lay aside every other interest and seek the Kingdom. We have been commanded to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Satan is working night and day to confuse our thinking and prevent us from gaining dominion over the works of God's hands.

If we overcome the accuser, the world, and our fleshly lusts and self-will we shall inherit all things.

Satan was destroyed on the cross of Calvary. Through unrelenting faith we manifest that victory in every area of our personality, in everything we do, say, and think, every day of our pilgrimage on the earth.

The enemy was destroyed two thousand years ago. Let us without delay seize the spoil. The spoil that has resulted from Calvary is the nations and the outermost areas of the earth.

And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over. (Joshua 3:1)

It is time for Christian people to "get up early in the morning" both literally and figuratively. It is time to demonstrate diligence in the taking of the Kingdom of God. The present day is not an hour in which to become occupied with the affairs of this life. It is the time to take the Kingdom. Those who lay aside every other interest and seek the Kingdom of God will be rewarded beyond their abilities to conceive.

Many of the saints are staying up late at night when they are not required by their employment to do so, and getting up late in the morning. They are defeated before they start the day because they do not begin with prayer and seeking the Lord. Let us fix our minds on the one goal of seeking the will of Christ each day of our life. Then let us use self-control in all we do, just as a champion athlete does, not eating, playing, and sleeping as though the rulership of the creation were not at stake.

To be continued.
