Bullets for war

And of his fullness have all we received.

Bullets for war

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

 

The word of God is our strongest weapon against the devil and his agents. John 1:16 says “And of his fullness have all we received.”

 

These words tell us that there is a fullness in Christ. There is a fulness of essential Deity, for “in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead.” There is a fullness of perfect manhood, for in Him, bodily, that Godhead was revealed. There is a fullness of atoning efficacy in His blood, for “the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sin.” There is a fullness of justifying righteousness in His life, for “there is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus.” There is a fullness of divine prevalence in His plea, for “He is able to save to the uttermost them that come unto God by Him; seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.” There is a fullness of victory in His death, for through death He destroyed him that had the power of death, that is the devil. There is a fullness of efficacy in His resurrection from the dead, for by it “we are begotten again unto a lively hope.” There is a fullness of triumph in His ascension, for “when He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and received gifts for men.” There is a fullness of blessings of every sort and shape; a fullness of grace to pardon, of grace to regenerate, of grace to sanctify, of grace to preserve, and of grace to perfect. There is fullness at all times; a fullness of comfort in affliction; a fulness of guidance in prosperity. A fullness of every divine attribute, of wisdom, of power, of love; a fullness which was impossible to survey, much less to explore. “It pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell.”

 

Oh, what a fullness must this be of which we all receive! Come, believer, and get all thy need supplied; ask largely, and thou shalt receive largely, for this “fullness” is inexhaustible, and is treasured up where all the needy may reach it. Use this knowledge and the power of His fulness to extinguish all fiery dirt of the devil. In Jesus, Immanuel—God with us YOU HAVE FULLNESS.

 

 

Prayer that brings victory is praying in the knowledge of the abundance of Jesus backed with faith in Him.
