The Lord is saying, “With all of the disagreements and disappointments going on there is one thing that you can surely stand on which you know is true, and that is my word. Try to have less focus on the enemy and more focus on your success and your victories in me. You are the righteousness of God, you are a Holy Nation, Royalty, and the apple of my eye and no weapon formed against you will ever prosper simply because it can’t. Nothing can penetrate the Blood of Jesus, no evil eye, no witchcraft, voodoo or santeria. My Blood is a forcefield that the devil did not expect as he peeped around corners trying to figure out what we were planning instead of continuing to lead the angels in worship and praise as he should have. Just like in the rearview mirror of a car when you look in it everything looks bigger, that is what happens when you look over your shoulder and look back instead of looking forward to see what I have planned for you. No man putting his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom, remember that. Keep on keeping on and doing the things that you do for the Kingdom of God. Notice that I did not say ‘what others think you should be doing’ instead I am saying ‘do what I have called you to do.’ If you don’t know what that is ask me and I will show you. Whatever you do, do it as unto me and you will be blessed and receive your reward down here on earth and in heaven. I love you. I am watching you.”
1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
4 Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.
6 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost.
7 So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.
8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.
9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;
10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
