No Weapon Shall Prosper!

   Not so very long ago I had the humiliation of facing a false accusation; it wasn’t the first time, but this time caused an increasing amount of shame in me. I knew that it wasn’t a true claim against me, but the mere nature of the accusation I found embarrassing to say the least. As a matter of fact it even impacted my job as an advanced EMT as I had to cross the border into Canada from time to time. At the border I was called into the customs office as the accusation caused me to get a no contact order of protection against the individual that falsely accused me. No matter the shame and embarrassment I continued to do my job and I continued to do open air preaching at campuses in the area. My faith was in my Lord Jesus Christ, I knew that if I allowed Him to fight for me then I would be victorious.

   The day actually came when I had to face my accuser in a court of law. A younger man stepped out from around the corner and called to me to follow him into a small room. He explained that he was my court appointed representative, but it didn’t matter because the judge had asked my accuser to provide proof of the accusation and no proof could be given. I was then called into the judge’s chambers with my representative and the judge explained what was going on; she also asked if I wanted to seek any action against the plaintiff for the false accusation. I responded, “No thank you.” Then the judge dismissed me.

   Looking back, knowing that my God is good and awesome and all powerful; He is my Rock and my Refuge. My representative read me this verse and I have never forgotten it. In fact this young lawyer and I are very good friends to this day. Funny thing is, he had taken the day off and wound up coming to work that day because the previous night in prayer God told him he was needed the next morning. As for my accuser, well after she had a psychiatric evaluation done, she lost her job and her daughter left her and moved in with her father. My accuser lost just about everything; we still pray for her.

“No weapon that is formed against you will prosper;
And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord.

Isaiah 54:17

Victory is ours when the battle is the Lord’s!

We need to keep Israel in prayer, now more than ever!

God blesses those that bless Israel!

And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Mark 16:15 

Jesus * Said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: No one comes to the Father but though Me.
