The Matrix – Part 10 

Let’s Go!

“The enemy has only one weapon – the lie.”  You try to contain your excitement as Jesus continues.  “From the beginning the enemy has used it.  It enslaves the mind, binds one to the matrix and even defeats those freed from it.”   

You eagerly interrupt. “Then the best defense against a lie is the truth!”

The truth was in the beginningIts use is not defensive, but offensiveJust like ‘I am’, the ‘truth is’ and has forever beenThe artifice is the lie which must be destroyed.”

The mild correction does little to dampen your enthusiasm.  “Ok,  I’m ready to fight!  Let’s go!”

Jesus looks down at your empty hands.  “Where’s your weapon?”

  3. And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

    By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

    And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

    And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

    And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

  4. Thank God for His Word that exposes the lies of the enemy!

    Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

    Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
