The Word Of God Is Your Fence
Love the word of God, passionately and make it your aim to always please God and not grieve His Spirit. Breaking God’s word is breaking His Spirit and hurting Him.
Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy. Proverbs 28:13
Tell God you are sorry for grieving His Spirit, when you fall into sin, and quickly repent and forsake that sin. If you are angry or lie, confess it immediately and do not let the sun go down on your anger and sin. That is the big secret that you need. It is not that you will never fall into sin, it is all about your reaction after you fall.
1 John 1:8 says,
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:8
We take an example from Paul in acts of the apostles 23: 1-5
1Paul looked straight at the Sanhedrin and said, “My brothers, I have fulfilled my duty to God in all good conscience to this day.” 2At this the high priest Ananias ordered those standing near Paul to strike him on the mouth. 3Then Paul said to him, “God will strike you, you whitewashed wall! You sit there to judge me according to the law, yet you yourself violate the law by commanding that I be struck!”
4Those who were standing near Paul said, “How dare you insult God’s high priest!”
In this Scripture, Paul immediately showed remorse after insulting the high priest. He did not make excuse – that is spiritual maturity. God wants us to waste no time in showing remorse and regret anytime we sin.
Strive for spiritual maturity. God wants you to be perfect in your works. Do not be deceived by false preachers who mislead people into seeking blessings without submission and seeking power without purity. Examine every teaching with the word of God.
Revelation 3:2 says,
Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Revelation 3:2
God wants to bless you because He rewards those that diligently seek Him. He is the Lord of mercy, favor, and blessings. However, He wants you to grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. He wants you to prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. If your soul is not prospering, God will not be pleased with you, and He will introduce discipline.
The secret to constant victory is complete desire and submission to the word of God.
John 8:32 says,
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
The word of God is the truth. And you shall know the word and the word you know, and practice will set you free. Idleness, wishful thinking, idols and false teachings will never set anyone free – multiply bondage and destruction.
Marry the word of God, the way that Jesus did. Jesus is the word of God. When He lived on earth, He was always in complete union with God’s word and God’s will. Anything short of union with the word of God, will not give you the kind of victory and result that you want.
Some days ago the Lord spoke to me and said, “ the word of God is your fence.” Your fence is your wall, protection, defense and armor. The word defense has fence in it, with an s, replacing the c.
The word of God is also your sword. Go and study the armor of God again and you will see that all the armor of God is either the word of God or fruit of the word of God.
The word of God is the secret key and precious stone that you have been looking for and that key is Jesus Himself. He is the way and bridge to God the father. He is life and resurrection.
Put Him on completely and do not go and draw a picture of a spirit you don’t know and call it Jesus. Some days ago, the Lord took me in a vision and showed me a Catholic priest and a reverend sister carrying a statue that looked like the spirit that they baptized Mary.
They were dragging the doll-like lifeless statue and spiritual figure, and I went closer to them and was talking to them, but they did not hear me. Then the Lord spoke to me and said, “that statue is lie, magic, witchcraft and falsehood. Worship of statue is worship of lie, falsehood, and deception. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 8:4
Now about eating food that was offered to false gods: We know that the false gods in this world don’t really exist and that no god exists except the one God. 1 Corinthians 8:4
Another translation says, “an idol stands for something that does not really exist.”
Idol is just an imagination and a trick by the devil. It does not exist. It is worship of lie and death. When people reject the word, which is the truth, all that remains is lie and human imagination, and since man’s power is of no use at all, and death has been ruling humanity since Adam’s sin, all who reject the word of God still worship lie and death.
Believers are redeemed and should submit to the word of God and life completely, because they now belong to life and grace.
Pursue complete obedience and submission to God’s word. That is your protection. The word of God is your weapon, battle axe, armor, and defense.
