Names are given to God to reveal His nature. Last week we looked at Jehova Nissi, our banner of victory. It is God’s nature to give us victory.
Jehova Tsidkenu – The righteousness of God.
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
This verse reminds us that our righteousness is of God.
John 14:6 says that the only way to the father is through Jesus.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The enemy specializes in forming weapons against God’s people.
The first murder was because of a weapon formed against Able. Cain was of the evil one.
The verses in Isaiah 54:14-17 show that although weapons are established, they don’t work. We are far from oppression because we are established in righteousness.
Right-ness is a battle but righteousness is established.
The enemy will remind you of your past so that he can affect your present. Satan uses intimidation to control. The use of manipulation, intimidation and domination are actually witchcraft according to the Bible.
There is a difference in being lead (by God) or being driven (by satan).
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Everyone has skeletons in their closet. It was bad that you put them there but they keep us humble realizing that God is merciful.
