NO WEAPON

Isa 54:15  Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. 16  Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. 17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. 

It is precious to be born again and belong to the kingdom of God.

God is greater than any ad every weapon of the enemies, so, He can boldly say that “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; ….”   Isa 54:17

Sin is the chain of Satan. Once you are living in sin you are in captivity of Satan. You cannot command your master.

Immediately you confess your sins to God and ask for forgiveness   in the name of Jesus, your sins will be forgiven you and then you will become the child of the Kingdom.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Immediately you become a child of the kingdom, you can claim this beautiful promise – “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; ….”   Isa 54:17

We shall see some people in the Bible and see how the weapons of their enemies could not prosper.

  1. Potiphar Against Joseph

His weapon was imprisonment without terms. Joseph had no family, friend or sympathizer who could have fought for him.

At that time, it was as if God was not there. God used the weapon of Potiphar to link Joseph to the palace. So, the weapon of Potiphar did not prosper against Joseph.

  1. Pharaoh At The Red Sea

His weapons were chariots, horses, horse-men, selected soldiers, swords, spears, bow and arrows, and other ones. He was so sure that with those weapons, he would totally finish the Israelites.

By the following morning, he and all he had had sank into the sea.

Exo 15:1  Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. 2  The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him. 3  The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name. 4  Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone

Pharaoh’s weapons against the children of Israel could not prosper.

  1. Goliath

1Sa 17:4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. 5 And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass. 6 And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders. 7 And the staff of his spear was like a weaver’s beam; and his spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him. 

1Sa 17:43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. 

Goliath came to the battle field well prepared.

  • His stature was terrific.
  • His weapons and armour were very terrible and above that,
  • He also came with his gods.

So, he had comprehensive weapons against the children of Israel.

God sent a boy to render all his weapons totally useless with only one stone.

Goliath’s weapons could not prosper against the children of Israel.

  1. Jeroboam

1Ki 13:4  And it came to pass, when king Jeroboam heard the saying of the man of God, which had cried against the altar in Bethel, that he put forth his hand from the altar, saying, Lay hold on him. And his hand, which he put forth against him, dried up, so that he could not pull it in again to him. 5  The altar also was rent, and the ashes poured out from the altar, according to the sign which the man of God had given by the word of the LORD. 6  And the king answered and said unto the man of God, Intreat now the face of the LORD thy God, and pray for me, that my hand may be restored me again. And the man of God besought the LORD, and the king’s hand was restored him again, and became as it was before. 

Jeroboam’s weapon was his authority. He could order the arrest and execution of the man of God. So, he used his weapon and commanded the arrest and right away his hand withered. He started to beg the man of God who later prayed for him and his hand became normal right away.

His weapon could not prosper against the man of God.

  1. Nebuchadnezzar

 Dan 3:19  Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated. 20  And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. 21  Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 22  Therefore because the king’s commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. 23  And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 24  Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. 25  He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. 26  Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire. 27  And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. 28  Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. 

His weapons were, authority, strong men, ropes and furnace of fire. The fire was terrible and terrifying.

So, he used his authority to command the very strong men in the army to bind them and throw them with their dresses into the fire.

To show how deadly the fire was, the very strong men were killed by the heat of the fire.

Only the ropes of Nebuchadnezzar were burnt, Jesus joined them in the fire and the boastful king now had to address them as the servants of the Most High God.

All the weapons could not prosper against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

  1. Herod

Act 12:5  Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

Act 12:6  And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

Act 12:7  And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

Act 12:8  And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.

Act 12:9  And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

Act 12:10  When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.

Act 12:11  And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

Act 12:12  And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.

Act 12:13  And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda.

Act 12:14  And when she knew Peter’s voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.

Act 12:15  And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.

Act 12:16  But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.

Act 12:17  But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.

Act 12:18  Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter.

Act 12:19 And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded that they should be put to death. And he went down from Judaea to Caesarea, and there abode.

You can see again that the weapons of Herod could not prosper, instead of him to kill Peter, he rather killed his faithful soldiers.

Peter escaped and continued his ministry.

 

Isa 54:15  Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. 16  Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. 17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. 

In all the examples, the enemies truly gathered. The manufacturers of the weapon did very fine work but God created the wasters to waste and destroy the weapons.

Do not fear any weapon but focus on Christ. His word is yea and amen.

Whatever enemy is challenging you right now, just stand on the unshakeable word of God and declare the weapons useless and paralyzed in the mighty name of Jesus
