My sister Welcome to the forum. I always appreciate reading your posts. Very good insights from what your shared.Bro Blaine
My Scottish brother you are ever so right on in your posts.Bro Blaine
Brother thank you for your posts. And you are right we have to put on that Ephesians armor. By putting on the armor we know that we are backed by the authority of heaven. By the authority of Jesus Himself.And brother you had every right to rebuke me on that other thread. Your rebuje caused me to come to repentance. That is why I opened up this thread on our victory over Satan. Because like you brother I too can be deceived by the enemy. But if we put on that armor. We can resist him.Brother Blaine
As Brenda mentioned, nothing is automatic, we cannot give ground to the enemy. What has been given by God must be possessed by faith.And Blane mentions we must put on the whole armor of God (Jesus Christ).What happened when the children of Israel disobeyed the Lord and went after other gods?What happens when the Believer disobeys Jesus, lusting and going after other gods?1 Corinthians 10:1-12Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

I can't even remember the thread actually or what I wrote, I just hope I was loving and kind. God bless you my dear friend. I love you and love your precious heart of humility.
Water under the bridge bro. But I think of the verse that says the kiss of an enemy is death. But faithful are the wounds of a friend.Because of you're loving rebuke ( although at the time it hurt) I have tried to be careful what I post in this forum.Blessings to you my brother. Next time in Houston I hope we can put some shrimp on the barbie. You are Aussie aren't you. Frank tells me you're not South African. :-)Bro Blaine
