In the Presence of Our Enemies

I was reading this piece of Scripture, and this is what the Lord showed me…

I am stood before a large banquet table that is set out beautifully with gold and silver plates that have diamonds set within them, cups with the same pattern, and the cutlery has embossed jewels on the handles. There are red, blue, and purple threads woven within the material of the seat cushions that are attached to gold highbacked chairs. These are also covered in embossed jewels. We are to dine, today, by candlelight as I notice that dusk is falling in this great hall. I then walk towards the Lord, who has gone before me to prepare this table

I look around and see my enemies surrounding where Jesus stands, and I pause momentarily, but then as I gaze upon Jesus’ smile, and He brings a sense of overwhelming love into my heart, and I then continue to walk to Him, as He beckons me to sit beside Him

I have no fear as I sit because as a Christian, the enemies that are shown to me are death and the world, but I sit down, with my back to the enemies, and although this makes me vulnerable, I feel strong with Jesus’ peace and trust in Him

Friends, 1 Corinthians 15 assures us that we have victory over death, because of Jesus Christ, and 1 John 5 affirms to us that we have victory over the world because of our faith in Him

Therefore, I want to encourage you this morning, that although death and the world are very real for us all, just like the Lord showed me, He has gone before us to ensure that when we are focused on Him, we have nothing to fear, because as our Host, He offers protection at all costs

“You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies.”

Psalm 23:5

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
