With All Boldness

It is written by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 4:

8 Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, answered, “Respected elders and leaders of the people, listen.

9 Are we being put on trial today for doing an act of kindness by healing a frail, crippled man?

Well then, 10 you and everyone else in Israel should know that it is by the power of the Name of Jesus that the crippled man stands here today completely healed! You crucified Jesus Christ of Nazareth, but GOD raised Him from the dead. 11 This Jesus is ‘the stone that you, the builders, have rejected, and now He has become the Cornerstone!’ 12 There is no one else who has the power to save us, for there is ONLY ONE NAME to whom GOD has given authority by which we must experience salvation: the Name of Jesus.”

13 The council members were astonished as they witnessed the boldness of Peter and John, especially when they discovered that they were just ordinary men who had never had religious training. Then they began to understand the effect Jesus had on them simply by spending time with Him. 14 Standing there with them was the healed man, and there was nothing further they could say.

Boldness is courage, bravery, fearlessness, freedom from timidity, liberty to express without reservation; confident trust. 

Peter spoke from revelation, not simply observation or knowledge.  No one could take that revelation away from him and talk him out of the Absolute Truth of Who Jesus Christ is and by what power and authority the man was healed.  Nobody!

We need not focus on the world or demonic forces, we need to focus on fulfilling our callings with the same boldness by which Peter spoke.  I will not apologize for who I am in Christ, neither should you.  When you and I stand on the Absolute Truth, we stand in the position of power and authority given to us by Our Heavenly Father and HE will confirm HIS Word with signs and wonders.

Demons attempt to project thoughts and feelings into us attempting to redirect our focus away from the Power and authority of The Blood of Christ.  However, they cannot affect your spirit and that is why we need to be led by The Holy Spirit in all things.

Demons want you to hear, accept, and believe a lie.  That is what deception is all about.  This is why it is critical to renew our minds daily and guard against such deception.  Why does FATHER have me write these various Truths virtually every day?  These are critical times and we should ultimately come together in complete unity as Sons and Daughters.  None of us are islands meant to be isolated from those in Christ!

Yes, FATHER may have removed us from “congregations of unbelief” but I assure you that HIS Body of Christ is alive and well, longing for complete unity with the brothers and sisters in Christ.

I find that as I matured in Christ, I have become bold and have no hesitation in stating the Truth before those who FATHER leads me to in my daily affairs.  When you are speaking from a position of Truth, there is no debate or argument.  Boldness expresses itself with the confidence we have in Christ and His precious Blood.

The Holy Spirit is inside of us and that is where Life flows from.  The indwelling Spirit supersedes any outside influence is we will simply choose by what source we focus on.  As we submit to The Holy Spirit, an undeniable boldness will come on us as it did with Peter.  Men will marvel at what we say and do thus they will be unable to resist the Truth.

As the enemy sees your and my boldness in Christ and His Blood, they will go elsewhere to look for weak vessels to oppress and deceive.  In Acts chapter 19, it is recorded by The Holy Spirit:

11 Now GOD worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them. 13 Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the Name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” 14 Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so.

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”

16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the Name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. 19 Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So the Word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.

All demons are very aware of Jesus Christ and those who are led by The Holy Spirit.  They also are aware of imposters as shown above.  When we become “saturated” with The Word and walk in the boldness of The Word and The Spirit, demons will “know” us as well.  They will head in the opposite direction and seek someone else to overpower.  They are unable to keep The Word from spreading throughout the earth ultimately resulting in bring forth The Kingdom of GOD.
