GOOD NEWS FOR THE FALLEN......share freely.....written by deno.
......John 18:25)..And Simon Peter STOOD and warmed himself, They by the fire said to him, Are not you also one of Jesus's disciples? Peter (under pressure) denied knowing Jesus saying, No I am not.
......Jesus knew Satan wanted to sift Peter like wheat so Jesus told Peter, Peter I am praying for you so that your faith does not fail..I pray this prayer for you Peter because Satan knows you Peter, and he knows that you have some real fire for Me (Jesus) in you heart, and he knows that he better try to beset you quickly lest that fire inside you for Me turns into unstoppable passion to preach Christ....To feed My Sheep....in truth and in essence this is what was going on.
.......Our text is about what Jesus knew of Satans desire to sift Peter and of Satans move against Peter. Our text is another satanically orchestrated maneuver of the devil, set up and formed to break the spirit of faith in Peter. The whole scene and event was Satan formed. It was a satanic scheme and device formed against Peter.
.......Peter entering into that formed scene under its beguiling pressure failed to stand up for Jesus right then. Satan created a pressure situation against Peter to get Peter to deny knowing Jesus. Satan also puts you and I in pressure situations to try our faith and confidence. He does so in hope that we "by that pressure" lose our faith in the promises we are hoping in, believing, trusting, standing on, and speaking that we believe.
.......Satan attacks our faith zone. There exist many reason why he attacks and makes his moves against our faith. He knows the sinking powers in doubting. Remember Peter sinking and losing his blessed assurance when he began to doubt...But Satan also knows the incredible powers of strong believing or great faith...Faith Paul said, is a powerful shield and the shield of faith quenches all the fiery darts the devil throws at us and he knows that those who have strong faith in Jesus Name cannot only destroy all the fiery darts of the devil, but can be also used on the offensive moves of the church, and when we become bold in our faith and go on the offense instead of being on the defense all the time, he knows our faith in Jesus can destroy his works and schemes and cast him out.
.......Satan also forms pressures against us and temptations to test our commitment and loyalty to Christ in this world. To see if we will also deny the Lord in the midst of temptation to do wrong with others. Most every day those formations have been planned against us all by our enemy. They have been ordered against us by the devil..Be alert. Be sober...Remember the devouring roaring lion truth...He is clever seeking to catch us off guard, put us under strong temptation and pressure to deny the Lord in word or in deed as to sin or to be silent when we should have proclaimed and stood up for Jesus and the gospel truth..In the midst of FACEBOOK, or family, friends or in the midst of strangers, the satanic formations against us are formed daily...BE ON YOUR GUARD.....And And And watch that text or that phone call....The Serpent hisses in all kinds of ways....pssssss...hello.
.......Yes Peter failed under the formed pressure that Satan formed against him, but there is some GOOD NEWS that I want you to see in this light. As given me i give you. Here it is.... Satan won that round against Peter. Matter of fact, Satan won 3 rounds in his battle against Peter back to back. But let us REMEMBER THIS ONE AND MOST IMPORTANT THING...Jesus said, but Peter I HAVE PRAYED FOR YOU that your faith does not fail, and WHEN YOU HAVE RECOVERED (Peter was going to end up winning anyway) strengthen your brethren. In other words comfort your fellow Christians that lose a few rounds like you did.'..Let them how i payed for you and the results of that intercession. And Peter pray the same prayer in MY NAME for them..
........Yes Peter in the battle of Satan against him lost 3 rounds back to back BUT SATAN LOST THE BOUT.....PETER WON BY THE POWER OF THE INTERCESSION OF CHRIST PRAYER FOR HIM...CHRIST IS PRAYING FOR YOU. (Hello)...Christ prayers never fail....NEVER....Things may look like they are going south for awhile like they did in Peters case, but if we have Jesus praying with us or for us in the situation, all of heaven and grace will together mount up and will move on our behalf..THE MASTER HAS PRAYED...THE MASTER HAS SPOKEN and HE SPOKE SAYING TO PETER....YOU WILL RECOVER....Glory to God...
........The RECOVERED PETER who recovered by the exceeding greatness of the powerful prayer of Jesus for him, Peter on the day of Pentecost came back swinging at the devil and preached the gospel in the Power of God and Satan lost 3000 plus souls that day.
........So get up dear child of God..There is hope in the land called and from the intercessions of Christ for you..You may have lost the round or a few rounds, or maybe many rounds, but your going to end up winning the bout in the end. The one that prayed for Peter to recover and caused Peter to recover, that same mighty Savior ever liveth making intercessions for you...Jesus is praying for you that your faith fail not and that you recover and thru Christ you are going to win the fight and come back on top...HAVE FAITH IN CHRIST....And Church let us all pray for each other the PRAYER that Jesus prayed for Peter and that prayer was this...Peter I have prayed for you THAT YOUR FAITH and HOPE FAILS NOT......
.......THE PRAYER.......Father in Jesus Name we pray for every member of the Church all over the world that our faith in Jesus Christ and His Love, Word, and Gospel does not fail, and that our faith be fully restored in Christ....And Father we pray that our faith now grows exceedingly strong in the Lord Jesus and in the power of His might and glorifies the Name of Jesus Christ and His gospel causing many to repent and believe unto salvation unto the tremendous outpouring of the Joy and of the Spirit of the Lord upon and into all them that believe in all nations....Amen.....share freely.
