  • NO HOPE of VICTORY in OUR STRENGTH

    NO HOPE of VICTORY in OUR STRENGTH

    by David Wilkerson


    Even if you are saved - living under the covering of Christ´s blood

    and secured by faith in his work on the cross for you - you can

    still have ongoing battles raging inside you. Enemies of your soul

    seek to devour you and you are still engaged in a battle with satanic

    powers and strongholds. We are to claim the power that is available

    to us through God´s New Covenant, but that power comes only by faith.


    The prophet Isaiah warned Israel that there was no possibility of

    victory for them if they attempted to fight their adversary in their

    own strength. Isaiah chapter 31 paints a perfect picture of the

    futility of trying to do battle with the enemy in our human ability.

    I believe this chapter is a type and shadow of the ineffectiveness

    of our attempts today to defeat lusts, bad habits, and besetting

    sins by relying on human ideas and aids.


    This chapter is also an example to us of how sin will increase in

    the last days. Scripture says that society will wax worse and

    worse and the Church will be inundated with deceptions and

    doctrines of demons.
    I believe we are seeing that happen right

    now. Demonic hordes have infiltrated all media and every form

    of technology, flooding our culture with sensuality and perversions

    of all kinds.


    If you are in the midst of an overwhelming struggle, you must

    learn the word God gave to Zechariah: "´Not by might nor by

    power, but by My Spirit,´ says the Lord of hosts"
    (Zechariah 4:6).


    "For through the voice of the Lord, [the enemy] will be beaten

    down" (Isaiah 30:31). Isaiah is saying, "Your Lord promises to

    fight for you. He will make his voice known and it will put all

    your enemies to flight."


    Are you facing an enemy that is too powerful for you right now?

    If so, God asks simply that you lay down your sword and trust

    him to fight on your behalf.

    Anyone who is going to get into the boxing ring with sin will be beaten. They will either be beaten down until they are very discouraged, OR even worse, they will be deceived into believing they have won over sin.

    If any mere man could win over sin, Christ would not have had to die.
