from the overflow of our hearts

If I were the enemy


Hello, fellow Comrade!


This is a time like no other. We are seeing prophecies fulfilled left and right, and never before have I known so many close to me making their witness known to the nations. I am excited to see Yah providing and protecting in unexpected ways, and it fortifies my heart to be in fellowship with friends on similar journeys.


But I also am strongly experiencing an awareness of falsehood. This falsehood is fear, masquerading as reality, and even patriotism. So often I hear things such as, "It could be another 1000 years before Messiah comes!" Or this one, recently the most quoted, when asked about big choices turned over into the hands of another human -albeit a qualified one: "They know best! They did the the studies. What do we know?"


The choice to remain ignorant does not reflect a God-given spirit of discernment.


"I declare the end from the beginning, and ancient times from what is still to come.

I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and all My good pleasure I will accomplish.’"

Isaiah 46:10, BSB


On pondering these statements and then coming to this Scripture, I was led to search through the enemy's plan...


If I were the enemy

And control was my plan

I would fool the nations any way that I can

I would make them doubt the instruction received

About whether they should eat from a certain tree

Written was not, if serpents talking caused shock

But laid out bare, was that Adam was there


Eve was deceived, and so when she conceived

Sorrow would guide

Her path to new life


Adam stood silent

And now there is violence

Our days are filled with confusion and riots


If I were the enemy

I'd beguile and I'd tempt

Until men's hearts were filled with only evil intent

Until there was no limit to the perverse

No caring whom they damaged or hurt


If I were the enemy

And Salvation came

I'd attempt to tempt Him into playing my game

I'd use His humanness

I'd use Scripture

Try to convince Him to succumb to His fleshly nature


If I were the enemy

I would use greed

To ruin a student

And away lead

The Name of redemption

"Does Yah really save?"

I would torture Him, then leave Him to the grave


If I were the enemy

I would make His name foul

By committing atrocities

And blaming Him. How?

A special people chosen

Would be shamed, and poisoned

And when asking, "Why?"

"For His Name!" we will cry!


If I were the enemy

I would rip out the mat

From under the chair where naive people sat

Not like the Bereans

They were arrogant, ignorant

And within their pride, they fell for my design


If I were the enemy

They wouldn't see clearly

I'd cut off their health

Shatter their wealth

Cause mistrust

And turn them to dust

They would be more tossed than waves in the sea

No one enjoys this more than me!


And just when their hearts fail

And knees turn to Jello

Some will proclaim,

"Look here, to this fellow!"

I will come dashing, as a handsome knight

Bringing signs of peace

Hope to end to this plight

This constant struggle, will be over, it seems

And just then I will introduce my dreams

"One world. One vision!" The nations will cry

But only my children will see from my eye

For what was played out as love, compassion for all

Was the seal that would finally make them fall

Trusting leaders of men

To save them again

Would lead to the cede

Not to be freed


If I were the enemy

I would provide

A cunning form of control

Through relationship ties

The world will hate those who do not submit

To my "saving" plan, and all that's in it


If I were the enemy

I would cause a mark

To be placed on all walking in the dark

Bit by bit, they would grab hold of it

Believing and claiming

t'would be salvation


If I were the enemy

I'd be having a ball

The Creation in its glory will fall

The human children now distracted by falsehoods

Will no longer believe that Yah could be good

But they do not see, they weaved the design

Forsaking His ways, time after time

And all the while cleaving to my beautiful lies


I am raising up a mighty army

Sustained by fear, pride, and money

Knowledge is in the order of the day

Pick any screen, you don't even need to pay

There are only a handful still "wise" enough to connect

To the revelations of Yah. Most tend to forget...

I keep them too busy with worries and sickness

That they could threaten me with their witness

And so I glean, our time is near

The battle awaits, or so I hear

Will I find you lost in my dark, swirling sea

of doubts, thinking, "they know more than me"?


Maybe I'll lose you to that Heavenly gate

But I don't worry, for narrow is the Way

Few are able to keep on the path

So often, I cannot help but laugh

When I convince them The Instructions are useless

That revealing sin was their ONLY purpose


The single thorn to my side

Are the few who thrive

On the Bread of the Word

Who feast on its worth

They purify their hearts with the Blood of the One

Who was and is and is to come

This may make me shudder

But it won't get me under

My plan will fool, marvel and wonder!

I will accuse all I can, though some I may lose

But watch out! Get ready! Soon you will have to choose!

 


"Submit therefore to God.

But resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Come close to God and He will come close to you.

Cleanse your hands, you sinners;

and purify your hearts, you double-minded."

James 4:7 - 8 NASB2020


Within Abba's will and by exercising discernment, we can see the enemy's plan and can move ahead in peaceful confidence. Place yourself under Yah's authority, for there you will find the guidance, provision and protection you need. Press all the deeper under His wing, until you can hear His heart beat for you. Let us keep reaching, longing for the guidance and wisdom from our Heavenly Father. He is good, and will not lead us astray.


“Because he loves me, I will rescue him;

because he knows my name, I will protect him.

He will call on me, and I will answer him.

I will be with him when he is in trouble.

I will extricate him and bring him honor.

I will satisfy him with long life and show him my salvation.”

Psalm 91:14-16 CJB


May you find peace within Elohim in the chaos of this world, and may the Holy Spirit reveal all the more clearly the enemy's plan.


Shalom

René
