Exodus 14:14 (KJV) unveils a prophetic declaration: < The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. >
The Word of the Cross (1 Cor 1:18) stands and operates in us in a Witness in Spirit, Water and Blood (1 John 5:8, 10a, NKJV).
The Word of the Cross has opened to us an eternal and abiding reality of the peace that surpasses all understanding. And we can hold this GOD-given and GOD-ordained peace – in the Witness operating in us by the HOLY SPIRIT – to realize the victory YESHUA accomplished on the Cross in the specifics of our being, in our life’s situations and circumstances and, in our ministries.
The Witness – operating in us, by the HOLY SPIRIT (Romans 8:2) – in Spirit, Water and Blood (John 19:30, 34) is the faithful and true Witness of JESUS CHRIST (Rev 3:14b).
In the faithful and true Witness, is the Shabbat-Shalom of YHWH, given to us in the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets (Matt 5:17; John 14:27).
YESHUA instructs us as follows in John 14:27 (KJV), < Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. >
In John 16:33 (KJV), YESHUA declares: < These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. >
YHWH has given us a capacity for peace that surpasses all understanding in the Witness in us – in Spirit, Water and Blood.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV) reads: < Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. >
“Through CHRIST JESUS” is an operating reality that is opened by the HOLY SPIRIT, in the Witness – in Spirit, Water and Blood.
[Tongues are a powerful tool that facilitates our entry and operation in the Witness, in a Shabbat-Shalom that surpasses all understanding.]
To see victory in our lives; to be overcomers in all kinds of travail; to persevere in the plans of GOD; to actualize breakthroughs; to see healing and deliverance flow in our lives and being; we must “hold the peace” through the Witness in us, by the HOLY SPIRIT, in the understanding that it is YHWH who fights for us and, that in the Blood of the LAMB, victory has been obtained for us.
As Exodus 14:14 (KJV) decrees: < The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. >
This peace (Heb: shalom) is the Witness that stands in Blood; the Blood of the LAMB is the predestined reality in which sin and death have been destroyed (see Rev 13:8, KJV; 12:11, 10-11, 7-9).
This shalom (peace) in the Witness stands in the Oath of GOD sworn in Blood over us and into us by YHWH in the merits of the LAMB.
Hebrews 7:28 reads: < For the Law appoints men as high priests who are weak, but the word of the oath, which came after the Law, appoints a Son, made perfect forever. >
The Witness of peace holds the Word of GOD in the Oath of YHWH that surpasses all understanding. GOD will give us exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works within us (see Eph 3:20).
The power that works within us operates in Spirit, Water and Blood; and stands in a Shabbat-Shalom that surpasses all understanding. This power operates as a consequence of all that YHWH has predestined in the SON, by the HOLY SPIRIT (see Romans 8:2).
This is prophetically foreshadowed as the heritage of Joseph, who is called a fruitful ‘bough’ in Genesis 49:22. In John 15:4-5 we are referred to as ‘branches’ called to bear fruit.
As Genesis 49:23-24 explains: < “The archers bitterly attacked him, and shot at him and harassed him; but his bow remained firm, and his arms were agile, from the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob (from there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel)” >.
“His bow remained firm” translates into an inward reality in us, where we stand firm by holding the Peace of YHWH-Shalom in a Shabbat Rest alive by the SPIRIT in our inward parts, where we cease striving and know that GOD is in control and that the victory that we are choosing to appropriate is a ‘done deal’ in the finished work of the cross. In the Witness, the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob (see Isa 9:6-7), the Shepherd (see John 9:11, 14, 27) and Stone of Israel (see Matt 16:18-19) operates through us.
This is the peace of YHWH’s Covenant sworn in the Blood of the LAMB that surpasses our understanding of reality, which our Witness can actualize by the HOLY SPIRIT, through prayer and worship. We can preach, teach, counsel, worship and prophesy through this peace.
Tongues are a powerful tool in actualizing the Peace that surpasses all understanding (see also Heb 5:13-14)! Amen!
GBU! Be blessed to be a blessing!
