A Wall of Fire
Eccl.10:8; Song 2:15; Zech.2:5; Heb.12:29; I Pet.1:22
The enemy counts on your human imperfections and mistakes, saith the Lord, to make a hole in your life whereby he may gain entrance to oppress you with a multitude of vexations. A hedge of protection is needed against satan, and all too often, there are places where the enemy can penetrate. Ye must band together in the Spirit, saith the Lord, to resist the devil, whether he focuses his attack on one or two of you, or concentrates on hurting the whole assembly of the saints.
Never lose sight of your vital need for one another, as members of My dear family united in My Love. A wall of stones which are loosely packed together is marred by tiny cracks and crevices which are no problem for a snake to slither through. All too often the Lively Stones of My Body drift apart from each other, because the fruits of the Spirit are not carefully cultivated with diligence. Fervent love in the Spirit dries up and cracks in Christian relationships form because the weak, dying flesh nature comes to the forefront. It asserts dominance over and quenches My Spirit. Wherever such problems are found in church congregations, the enemy has a wide entrance to sow seeds of division and to let in the little foxes to spoil the tender vines.
Far better than a flawed stone wall is a wall of Fire round about you. Even as I shall in future days be a Wall of Fire round about Jerusalem to defend her from enemies, so would I be a Wall of Fire round about you, O My people, a barrier of impenetrable power and might. The fire of My fierce anger against your unseen foe is so hot that the Serpent fears to approach near unto it, much less try to bore holes through it to wriggle through it. Pray earnestly in the Spirit that ye might even be surrounded by that Holy Fire of the Spirit which will be a Comfort and a Light unto you, even as it is a terror unto the enemy. Seek Me that I might anoint you afresh with a heaven-sent anointing of Oil that keeps the Firewall going; a Wall that imparts divine power and protection, not just upon your individual lives, but upon your corporate life as a congregation united in My Love.
