Don't be the Weapon that is Formed Against Yourself

Isaiah 54:16-17 16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. 17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

Isaiah 54:17 (AMP) But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper , and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.

Psalms 141:3 Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

Psalms 141:3 (AMP) Set a guard, O Lord, before my mouth; keep watch at the door of my lips.

Luke 22:42 (AMP) Saying, Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but always Yours be done.

Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth , as it is in heaven.

Exodus 33:18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

Psalm 63:2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

Psalm 63:1-11 (AMP) 1 O GOD, You are my God, earnestly will I seek You; my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is faint for You, in a dry and weary land where no water is. 2 So I have looked upon You in the sanctuary to see Your power and Your glory. 3 Because Your loving-kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. 4 So will I bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. 5 My whole being shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips 6 When I remember You upon my bed and meditate on You in the night watches. 7 For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice. 8 My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me. 9 But those who seek and demand my life to ruin and destroy it shall [themselves be destroyed and] go into the lower parts of the earth [into the underworld of the dead]. 10 They shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be a prey for foxes and jackals. 11 But the king shall rejoice in God; everyone who swears by Him [that is, who binds himself by God’s authority, acknowledging His supremacy, and devoting himself to His glory and service alone; every such one] shall glory, for the mouths of those who speak lies shall be stopped.

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are HONEST , whatsoever things are JUST , whatsoever things are PURE , whatsoever things are LOVELY , whatsoever things are of GOOD REPORT ; if there be any VIRTUE , and if there be any PRAISE, THINK on these things.

The Greatest Battle Ever Fought

89 Well, that’s what’s the matter with our pentecostal Faith today. We’ve let too many things hinder It, the Faith that we been taught, the Holy Spirit that’s been living in us. We’ve let too many things, looking at somebody else.

90 And the devil is always trying to point you to somebody’s failure, but he tries to keep you away from the real testimony that’s genuine. He’ll point you to a hypocrite, some time, who went out impersonating something. He didn’t do it, because he was impersonating. But if it come from the true source of the Word of God, “Heavens and earth will pass away, but My Word cannot pass away,” It’s got to stay there. You see it, sis?

Testimony (Raising Dead Boy)

8 Here’s an old slogan I want you to remember it. “Do right; That’s your duty to God. Think right: That’s your duty to yourself. And you’re bound to be right.” That’s right. See? You’ll come out right if you’ll do right. That’s your duty to God. Think right; That’s your duty for yourself, and you’ll come out right. You just…

Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect PEACE , whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Psalms 119:165 Great PEACE have they which love thy law: and NOTHING shall offend them.

Hebrews 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

71 Oh, not that constant burden for the lost, that sweetness. Don’t never let anything rise up and put bitterness in your soul. No matter how bad anyone ever treats you or anything, don’t never! Don’t be guilty of letting that thing anchor in your soul. It’ll grieve the Holy Spirit away from you. It certainly will.

The Ten Virgins, And The Hundred And Forty-Four Thousand

79 See, always keep all roots of bitterness out of you. See? No matter what anyone does to you, let… just have God in there that’ll keep all evil away from you.

Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed

86 If the brother, you think he’s a little wrong, or the sister, say, “Lord, don’t let me never have the root of bitterness spring up , ‘cause it’ll—it’ll affect him, and it’ll take the Christ right out of my life.” That poison acids of malice, and jealousy, and hatred, that will just take the Holy Spirit right away from you. It will run Him from the tabernacle here. It’ll kill the Spirit of God, or drive It away from here, hurt your pastor. It’ll do everything. See? Don’t you do that.

87 You just wax that much closer together. Draw up the…Take the buckle, as the brother testified, a minister here the other night, about having a buckle, seeing it in a vision. Just, that buckles on the whole armor of God. Just pull her on, tighten up, move right up close to one another. Love one another, anyhow. Talk nice about one another, say nice things about one another, and then God will bless you.

17 Try to do something good and just keep being good; hold no malice, no grudges, don’t let any bitterness. No matter how bad the person is and how bad they talk about you, don’t you never think evil in your heart against them; ‘cause right there the devil will set right in, work up something right there. Just keep it all covered up with godly love, confession, and making right, and do good to those who do evil to you. “If you only do good to those who do good to you, why,” Jesus said, “don’t the publicans the same?” See? The sinners, anybody can be good to those that’s good to them. But be good to those who are not good to you, do something for those that would not do nothing for you. Speak a good word for the man that would speak evil against you, and that way you keep all the bitterness out of your heart; and you’re always in love with everybody then, as long as you stay in love.

Mark 11:25-26 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 18:33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

Ephesians 4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

Genesis 27:41 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Jacob.

Perfect Faith

19 Now, faith is based on forgiveness, then. And then, as we said this morning, trying to get the church into the place to where we could really see apostolic times moving among us, that’s what we all hunger. And it’s just laying right at the door. We see it, but we want to see more of it. We want it such a flow that it’ll—it’ll be a help to us, us flow out to others.

Matthew 6:14-15 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 18:21-22 21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Leviticus 19:17-18 17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbor, and not suffer sin upon him. 18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the LORD.

James 5:8-9 8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh 9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

Colossians 3:12 PUT on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, LONGSUFFERING ;

Colossians 3:13 Forbearing one another, and FORGIVING one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

Colossians 3:14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

The Great Commission

12 …If I have found grace in your sight through God, you take my word for this, brethren. If you want to be a blessing, and get a blessing, when a man has done you wrong, and he has absolutely justly, he…I mean he has done you wrong and you know that he’s done you wrong; he’s done you evil. Don’t mention that; you take him to prayer before God. And don’t take it in a way of just a selfish and say, “Well, I’m supposed to do this.” But stand with your shoulder to his shoulder, and stand in the Presence of God our Father, way a prayer should be made in the Presence of God, say, “Father, here’s my brother, and he—he is justly; he deserves punishment because he has—he’s done me evil. And I don’t see why he did it.”

13 Then let God go to talking to you. And you’ll see maybe, what that man’s been through. The devil has twisted him up somewhere and caused him to do that. Though he’s absolutely wrong, before you leave the throne of God you’ll be feeling sorry for that man. You’ll be sympathizing with that brother. And when you get back down to where—earth again, you’ll go over to that brother and shake his hand, ‘cause you know what he’s been through. You can’t stand with a mortal in the Presence of God and condemn anybody, I don’t believe, no, sir, even if he is a rank sinner.

And what about a brother that has made a mistake? Though I say he’s wrong. Sometimes he’s accused wrong when he’s not wrong. But if he is wrong, well, if we will take him to the throne of God, stand there shoulder-to-shoulder with our brother, knowing he’s a mortal, and maybe his destination rests upon our attitude towards him, when we come back from the throne of God, we’ll realize that we’re every one guilty, and we all need help one from the other. And the best way to do is pray.
