Conquering The Opposition Through Love

By THE SPIRIT it is written in Luke chapter 4:

6 And the devil said to Jesus, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.

7 Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.”

There is an opposing force to our walk and we must overcome that opposing force if we are ultimately to be called “overcomers” in Christ.  Jesus dealt with the opposition and we must do so as well.  Sickness and disease do not just occur on their own.  Cancer cells are in direct opposition to the normal function of the body and they are a destructive force.  Doctors attempt to remove cancer by many methods which effectively tells us that they don’t have the true solution.  The SOURCE of our solution is FATHER for BY HIM is all opposition removed and healing occurs.  We are called to be more than conquerors as revealed by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 8:

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.

34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written: ​​​“For Your sake we are killed all day long; ​​We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

​37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You and I are called to open the eyes of the people who are blinded to the works of the devil.  There Is much noise and confusion these days brought about by our overuse of technology.  I grew up when there were only three television channels and now there are hundreds available to divert your attention from what is truly important to your life.  Our smart phones are really dumbing us down by removing the need to think, ponder, and converse with others.  We must not allow ourselves to be swept into the enslavement of technology.  When technology becomes our focus, the opposition has gained a foothold on our life and darkness begins to envelope us.  Blindness is not far behind.  Consider what Paul recounts in Acts chapter 26 when Jesus spoke to him:

15 So I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.

16 But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.

17 I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you,

18 to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’

We are being saturated with knowledge by the world but it is negative and by its nature is enslaving.  Let our our understanding be enlightened so we are able to see the issue before us.  We must see the issue before we can conquer it.  We must turn people from darkness to light AND from the power of Satan to the power of Our Heavenly Father.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRINT in 2 Corinthians chapter 4:

2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,

4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

5 For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake.

6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

This may be the greatest challenge many will face- to conquer the opposition.  It can only be fully accomplished by having a foundation of Love for Love conquers all.  This is why every true overcomer must get the revelation of Love and walk in it in order to conquer the opposition.
