No contradiction can dilute or destroy having faith stand on the all-powerful Truth of
Our father of faith Abraham was promised a son by God, but it incurred an outstanding contradiction against what God had promised, and both Abraham and Sarah his wife had to overcome it by faith. After their first attempt in the flesh failed because of unbelief, God visited Abraham a second time, and he saw and accepted God's way of faith to realize the vision.
Both Abraham and Sarah were immediately inducted into the "war of faith" against all contradiction. They fought the good fight of faith resulting in victory. Abraham was 100 years old when Sarah, at 90, conceived by faith and physically had Isaac according to the promise of God.
Abraham is known according to the scriptures as our "father of faith."
Job was a covenant man of God whose biblical account inspires the believers in Christ to contend for overcoming faith. Because he was the most righteous and God-fearing man in his times in the land, Job had a living testimony concerning God's covenant of divine health, wealth and prosperity, and a family (Job 1). However, it was soon devastated by satan, the destroyer who reeked incomprehensible havoc and calamity in an attempt to cause Job to forsake his faith in God.
Job overcame by trusting God in spite of the contradictions that assaulted him.
Contradictions are Deceptive
Like Joseph, the dreamer, many of you are in the prophetic process of training for reigning and for overcoming everything that has come against you Many times what looks like a contradiction is really a tool of blessing that God uses to get you aligned to the right door of favor and opportunity.
How could Joseph's wrongful imprisonment, and being forgotten there for two years, launch him into God's calling for his life? Joseph's imprisonment positioned him for his launching in God's perfect timing. Joseph was remembered according to his gift, and he was asked to interpreted Pharaoh's dream in the throne room -- and the door of his destiny was opened for Joseph the dreamer to step into his own!
You may be among the many believers in this hour who are contending for what God has promised them in His Word, concerning their calling, career or destiny. When such promises, dreams, and visions are given by God -- as we have seen from the example of Job who said "though He slay me I will trust Him" -- one must take that kind of quality trust in God, and put that stake in the ground and STAND against all contradiction.
AGAINST ALL CONTRADICTION - - STAND!
Entering into your inheritance in Christ hinges on moving with obedience to the Wisdom of God
It so happened as I put the finishing touches on this post this morning, I looked up on my shelf at the plaque sitting on my desk shelf. But this time the same scripture jumped out at me! When you water someone with the word you in turn will get watered! God always confirms His Word.
Lastly, looking again at Job, we read that the Lord responded to Job's season of contradictions in his trial. In Job 38-42, the end of the book illustrates to us the spiritual truths to apply to endure seasons of contradictions. The benefits that you can reap when STANDING against all contradictions are :
- STANDING provokes God to visit the believer and opens the eyes to a greater revelation of His Nature--His goodness, sovereignty and faithfulness
- STANDING unfolds an opportunity of intercessory prayer to pray and forgive and release those who are double minded and misguided spiritually and the immature (who bring about offense, jealousy, and religious betrayal)
- STANDING releases the power of God to turn and release one's season of trial and captivity to contradictions
- STANDING prepares one to be established in the rewards of overcoming faith: It recovers DOUBLE for all of one's trouble: It redeems the time lost in trials, releases an open Heaven over the believers' life, supernatural upgrades of Redemptive and Restorative blessing and provisions for every area of life and longevity
God is no respecter of persons. Whosoever is preparing and believing God's promises concerning their calling, ministry, career, health, wealth, family, or what ever you have been promised in His Word, continue to be willing and obedient in acting on the scriptural principles of wisdom and with the revelation of standing against all contradictions of faith...for your captivity to all contradiction is about to be turned.
