Fear Thou Not‚ For I Am With Thee!

ML #2591, Lifelines 19

1. We're pretty aware of who our enemies are, and some of them are very powerful.—But the Lord's a lot more powerful, amen? So you don't have to worry about the forces of the Devil and our enemies. God can be a much greater Enemy to them than they are to us! "Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world!"—1Jn.4:4.

2. I was recently thinking, "Lord, things are getting so bad now in most countries, is there anywhere that's really safe for the Family?" And thank the Lord, He spoke this beautiful little song to my heart right then to remind me of His wonderful care and protection: (Sings:)

"Precious hiding place,

Blessed hiding place,

In the shelter of His love!

Not a doubt nor fear,

When my Lord is near,

For I'm sheltered in His love!"

—The Lord is our refuge!

3. Another beautiful hymn that brings this out is Fanny Crosby's "Safe in the Arms of Jesus":

"Safe in the arms of Jesus,

Safe on His gentle breast,

There by His love o'er shaded,

Sweetly my soul shall rest.

Safe in the arms of Jesus,

Safe from all worry and care,

Safe from the world's tribulations,

Nothing can harm me there.

Jesus, my heart's dear Refuge,

Jesus has died for me;

Firm on the Rock of Ages,

Ever my trust shall be!"

4. His Word tells us, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will we not fear though the Earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea! Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof."—Psa.46:1–3.

5. That's His promise, amen? He is our refuge and strength, and through the trying days that now are and shall yet come, He is "a very present help in trouble." If we love Him and if we're obeying Him and keeping His commandments, doing His Will, the Lord is very concerned about helping and preserving and protecting us.

6. Just read the Bible and you'll see story after story of how marvelously the Lord protects and keeps His children. Once in a while they got in trouble and they suffered some, but He always delivered them! He doesn't say that you're never going to have any trials or afflictions, but He promises He'll deliver you out of them all! Amen? (Psa.34:19)

7. As long as we are obeying God and trusting Him and having the faith and trust in His Word that we should, I don't believe God's going to let too much happen to us except maybe a little test now and then just to see how much faith we've got, how determined we are‚ how much patience we have, and how convinced we are that we're right. He sometimes allows troubles as a testing and trial to see how much knowledge of the Word we have, and how much we'll stand on the Word!

8. Once‚ when I was concerned and burdened about our children and asking the Lord how our little ones would survive these rapidly darkening Last Days, He answered me with a question: He said, "Will I not care for My Own?" Praise the Lord!—What an encouragement from the Lord! "Will I not care for My Own?" The Lord is able to keep us through anything and everything, and I'm certain that He wants to spare us and our children to minister to others, to help and encourage and inspire faith and glorify Him.

9. He reminded me of a Scripture verse and said‚ "And if I fail to care for My Own"—for you—"I am worse than an infidel!"—1Tim.5:8. In other words, He will care for us, amen? In fact, He won't let a hair of your head be touched without His permission! "He that toucheth you toucheth the apple of Mine eye!" (Mat.10:30; Zech.2:8)

10. God is our defense, not the System! The Systems were put here by God to defend the weak from the wicked, but frequently they become corrupt and wicked themselves so we can't trust them. We have no security except in the Lord, and we dare not trust in Man‚ whose breath is in his nostrils! "Let every man be found a liar but God be found true!" (Isa.2:22; Rom.3:4.)

11. (Prayer:) Thou art our Deliverer, our Strong Fortress in Whom we hide, our Strong Tower in which the righteous hide and are delivered from the Enemy! We fly to Thee‚ Lord!—Thou art a shadow in the time of trouble. Thou art our strength! We're nothing. We're weak, but Thou art our strength! We're Thy little children—Thy little sheep who run to Thee and hide from the Enemy—hide from the wolves who would try to devour us. We need You, Jesus!

12. You promised, Lord, "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty" (Psa.91:1), and we know that's the best protection there could possibly be, Lord. So we put our faith and trust in You, in Jesus' name, amen.


13. Don't ever forget, we are surrounded by the angels of God. The Devil doesn't dare attack us unless the Lord lets him for some reason. We are hedged in, as the Devil himself said about Job. The Devil complained to God about Job, "How can I touch him? You've got him fenced in! You've got him so hedged in, I can't even reach him, I can't even touch him!"—Job 1:10. Well, God has placed a hedge of angels around us also, a fence of angels, a wall of angels, and the Enemy cannot touch us without the Lord's specific permission!

14. "The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them!"—Psa.34:7.—Else we would have been destroyed by our anti–Christ enemies long ago! So thank God for the great company of angels He's given us! Hallelujah! TYJ! (Tongues: ) "Ye lie protected by My angels‚ and I have kept thee through lo these many years!" Hallelujah! TYJ! PTL!

15. When it looked like the Prophet Elisha was cornered and surrounded by an entire army of his enemies, his servant became very worried and upset, as it looked like a truly impossible situation: "And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, 'Alas, my master! How shall we do?’"—2Ki.6:15.

16. But the Prophet answered, "Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them! And Elisha prayed, and said, 'Lord, I pray Thee, open his eyes, that he may see.’ And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold‚ the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha!"-2Ki.6:16,17.

17. So that's something that we need to remember and constantly thank the Lord for—His marvelous, miraculous, supernatural protection! Thank God for His angels that encamp round about us! He must have whole legions assigned to keep us! He's got seven of them just around me, so think how many He must have around the whole bunch of us! PTL!

18. Did you know that that was one of the last messages that my Mother ever gave to us? She said, "The Lord told me today, 'Thank Me for My angels. Why don't you thank Me for My angels who guard you continually?’"

19. (Prays:) So thank You for Your angels, Lord, that You've given charge over us, to keep us in all of our ways, to compass our camp 'round about, Lord, to keep the Enemy from touching us. Thank You, Lord, for all Thy children who do Thy Will and stay in the charmed circle of Thy protection‚ in Thy Will, in Thy Work, so that the Devil can't touch them with his dirty deeds and dangers and all the rest! Thank You, Lord for how marvelously You've kept and protected us, for Thy protecting angels! TYJ!

20. Thank You for Thy great mighty Army‚ Lord, that surrounds us, that resists all the powers of Hell, though they be let loose against us. Even one angel is enough to deal with them all! (See 2Kings 19:35!) Thank You Lord for all Thy goodness and mercy! Help us all to stay close to Thee in the charmed circle of Thy protection, in Jesus' name.


21. When people get upset and worried about things, we often say, "Don't worry about it!" Well, if anybody could say that to us, it's the Lord!—"Don't worry about it! You're My child and I'm going to take care of you no matter what happens!"

22. Don't worry about your enemies.—Just trust the Lord, and I'm sure He'll take care of you! He never fails, no matter what the conditions. He says, "Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust and respecteth not the proud nor such as turn aside to lies."—Psa.40:4. That means that we're to trust the Lord and not to heed our enemies' lies nor worry about them. We're not to give too much respect to our proud enemies who try to trouble and persecute us. They don't deserve our respect! We're not supposed to fear Man! It's the Devil that tries to make you fearful and afraid!

23. Once, when it looked like some of our enemies were getting a little too close to us for comfort, I was burdened about the seemingly imminent danger and I just cried out, "Lord, what should we do?" And instead of telling me what to do, He told me what not to do. I wasn't asking the Lord for a Scripture, I wanted to know what to do. But He simply told me, "Fear thou not, for I am with thee. Be not dismayed, for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee, yea, I will help thee, yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness!"—Isaiah 41:10. That's a verse I've gotten before, but it was certainly an encouragement from the Lord at that time.

24. So whatever you are and whatever you do, don't be afraid! Be like King David, who exclaimed, "In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what Man can do unto me!"—Psa.56:11. Keep your faith in the Lord and trust the Lord and know the Lord is in control, and nothing's going to happen but what the Lord allows. The Lord's going to take care of us, whatever happens, and He's going to do what He wants to do.

25. Don't worry about our enemies, these little nothings that move at His behest! God is in control and they can do nothing without His permission, and all things that He lets them do will eventually work together for our good‚ so they are only hurting themselves and helping us! PTL!

26. (Prays:) Lord‚ we know in spite of our enemies and the dangers and evils of this wicked, anti-Christ world‚ that Thou shalt keep us in Thy way, whatever it may be. So just help us not to fear, Lord, not to be afraid of what Man can do to us‚ but only to fear Thee and love Thee and follow Thee and obey Thee! You said, "In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and His children shall have a place of refuge."—Pro.14:26. PTL!

27. Help us to remain at peace in Thee, Lord! "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee because he trusteth in Thee."—Isa.26:3. Help us not to worry about any of the waves and winds and billows that the Enemy tries to stir up against us. Help us just to look to Thee, Lord, and keep our eyes on You, Jesus, and trust You. We know You work everything out for the best somehow. All things, Lord, shall work together for good to us who love You. In some way it's all good for us, Lord‚ and it's all going to work together for our good, in Jesus' name. Amen.

28. (Prophecy: ) "Fear not, for I am thy God and thy testimony and thy peace and thy great Fortress round about thee which is in the Heavenlies, which no human power can touch, which is above all earthly powers! None can stand against thee, for I am thy God and thou art My children, and they are but specks and shall be blown away!

29. "Be not afraid, for I am thy God!—I will strengthen thee‚ yea, I will help thee, yea‚ I will uphold thee with the right hand of My Righteousness! Therefore, heed not the devices which come of that little punk Satan!—But rather, listen unto Me, and I will lead thee and I will guide thee.

30. "Fear not the things which rise against thee, for all the forces of the Devil shall be as chaff which the wind driveth away, and all the ridiculous little pieces of trash which rise against thee shall be blown away by the Spirit of God! For I am with thee, and none shall stand against the power I have given thee!

31. "Fear not therefore, that which shall come upon thee! For I shall turn it unto thy good! Every device of Man shall be turned back upon his own head." PTL! Hallelujah! TYJ!


32. The 'ol Boogie Man is after you, and you need to watch out and watch your step. But you don't need to be afraid. Don't get paranoid, don't worry. You can plan and prepare and face the facts and just be sensible and try to avoid his snares and traps, but keep your eyes on the Lord‚ don't get too concerned or worried about things, Amen?

33. The Lord protects us pretty well, thank the Lord. But we need to do our part and use a little common sense. Do what you can to get the situation under control, and whatever you can't get under control, the Lord has to get under control. That's where you have to trust the Lord, that He'll take care of His Own. But He expects you to do what you can towards trying to take care of yourself. He doesn't always do everything for us.

34. You have to give Him your cooperation and do what you can. For example, you can "walk in wisdom toward them that are without."—Col.4:5. He'll do what He can to protect and keep you, but you can tighten up your own family's security, tighten up your personal family, your legal relationship, and make sure you have your legal paperwork in order for yourself and your children, etc.

35. There are a lot of little catches and snags and thorns and hooks on which you might get hung if you don't watch your step with the System and make sure you've done what you can to see that your personal situation is as secure as possible. You should at least make sure that your children are safe and your family set-up is as legal and safe and protected from harm and from the dangers of the Enemy's attacks as you can get it.

"WATCH and PRAY!"—Mat.26:41

36. One of the best ways to avoid or prevent any kind of serious problems and troubles is to pray without ceasing. Keep close to the Lord and constantly claiming the protection of the Lord, always asking the Lord to keep you, and bless and protect you, because lots of things can happen that are totally beyond your control‚ but not the Lord's!

37. So the main thing to do is live close to the Lord and trust Him and avoid the conditions under which such things can happen as much as you possibly can. Avoid taking any unnecessary chances and avoid dangerous conditions and encounters whenever possible. The Devil will take advantage of any situation that he can, especially if you're not real prayerful‚ watchful and cautious, so don't let him have the chance! Stay close to the Lord and in His Will and obey His Word.—And use your head and a little common sense!

38. "Men ought always to pray and not to faint" (Luk.18:1), God's Word says. And He says, "Pray without ceasing!"—1Th.5:17. Jesus said "Watch and pray!" (Mat.26:41)‚ He didn't say that for no reason. He not only knew you would need it, but it's one way the Lord has of trying to keep you close to Him, in His presence continually, and constantly dependent upon Him and His protection and provision.

39. We need to "Be sober, be vigilant, because our adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour."—1Pet.5:8. You've really gotta watch out for the Devil and his outfit! They've got all kinds of ideas, and as I used to say, as many different tactics as a dog has fleas! But what can we do to try to prevent them? We can't always prevent their attacks, but in order to try to prevent their accusations and charges from sticking or our getting caught in their clutches or our children getting taken away from us‚ we should certainly do all that we can to avoid their snares and traps.

40. Of course, your best protection is to stay strong in the Lord and the Word and in prayer and the Spirit and don't allow the Enemy any openings or opportunities to annoy you or cause you trouble. Jesus Himself said, "A strong man armed keepeth his goods in peace!"—Luk. 11:21. What did Jesus mean by that? To be strong is to be watchful and to be wise.—Not just strong physically and able to beat him up or shoot him, but to be strong in spirit, strong in prayer, strong in security, strong in watchfulness!—"Armed!"—Are you?

41. The Lord is merciful, and you usually get a little warning of some kind, the Lord gives you a check of His Spirit to warn you that something is happening or about to happen or may happen. The Lord always gives a warning, always! (Amos 3:7) So make sure you're watching and praying and staying in tune with the Lord so you'll be able to receive and heed His checks!

42. "Watch and pray!"—Those are two cardinal rules of taking care of children and shepherding the Lord's sheep! You've got to really watch'm and watch out for everything‚ and really pray! PTL? God bless and keep you and help you to watch and pray!

43. (Prays:) Lord, help us to always be wise and watchful and prayerful‚ that we may never be caught napping or sleeping. You've said time and again that we should watch and pray that these things don't come upon us, Lord, unawares without notice or without any preparation. (See Mat.26:41; Mk.13:33; 14:38; Luk.21:36; Eph.6:18; Col.4:2; 1Pet.4:7!)

44. Many times in Your Word, Lord, You said, "Watch and pray, watch and pray." We're not only to pray for security, for Thy protection, for safety, Lord, but we are to watch out ourselves. We're to be cautious and watchful and beware or You wouldn't have said, "Watch"! You said for us to be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves‚ and to watch out because You were sending us out like sheep in the midst of wolves. (Mat.10:16) So You expect us to use a great deal of wisdom and to be very watchful regarding our own personal security and the security of Thy Work and Thy children. So we ask Thee to help us to be more conscious of it. TYJ!

45. So help us now, Lord, to be constantly on our guard for the Enemy and his wiles and darts and dirty tricks. Guide us by Thy Spirit, warn us, strengthen us, and help us to be aware of his devices. Help us not to allow ourselves to get unnecessarily caught in his traps.

46. We know the Enemy is always ready to take advantage of every unguarded moment when we're not watching or looking or praying or being as cautious and careful and prayerful as we should be, Lord. So help us not to have any unguarded moments, Lord, but to guard every moment in prayer and watching, being cautious and avoiding any conditions that the Enemy could take advantage of‚ in Jesus' name.


47. The Lord spoke to us once and said the reason that certain people were having so much sickness and trouble was because they were running around outside the tower of the Lord's protection and that they were not hiding in the secret place or staying under the Lord's wings. If you really want God's blessing and protection, you've got to stay close to the Lord, like a little chick under the wings of the mother hen; in tune with God and in touch with Him in prayer—really touching God!

48. God cannot protect you‚ prosper or bless you when you are out of His Will and running around outside of the secret place and from under His shadow, His wings, and the Fortress of perfect fellowship with Him! When you do this, you can no longer claim the protection and defenses of Psalm 91‚ and He may even let you fall prey to the Enemy, because you're playing around with fire and living so close to Enemy territory!

49. As long as you keep trying to please the Lord and obey and stay in His Will and are doing your best to serve Him, He'll do His best to take care of you. But if you go running off your own way‚ doing your own thing, He's no longer responsible. It's only when you abide within the tower of His Will under His wings, that you can expect His protection.

50. We are engaged in a spiritual warfare with Satan himself, and if you want to win the battles and stay free to serve the Lord, you'd better keep in tune and in touch with the Holy Spirit and on God's territory all the time and close to His Word and in the right spirit and constantly in prayer, seeking the Lord and praying for His protection and His help and thanking Him constantly for His blessings‚ and staying mighty close to the Lord!—Or you're going to be singed by that old fire-breathing Dragon! If you go running around outside of the tower of God's protection and the holy place of His Will, that old Devil's going to be on your trail and try to give you all kinds of trouble!

51. If you get rebellious and disobedient and out of touch with the Lord, watch out, because that's when the Devil gets in touch with you or some member of your family! That's his privilege if you run outside the Lord's protection.

52. (Prays:) Thank You for Thy protection, Lord!—Protecting us in spite of all the Enemy may try to do. "Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."—Psa.127:1. We know You'll continue to keep us if we continue to do what's right and we obey.

53. Thank You that You're always watching us, You never take Your eye off of us lest we get in trouble! TYJ! You keep us out of all kinds of trouble. TYL! The only trouble You ever let us get into, Lord, is usually what we deserve. If after several warnings we insist on going our own way and not obeying, being careless or prayerless, You let something happen just to teach us a lesson. But Lord, help this not to happen too often.

54. Help each one of us to stay close to You, Jesus, in the center of Thy Will. Then we know we're in the center of Thy protection and provision and blessing and usefulness, and we have no problems, nothing to worry about. We can trust You utterly by faith because we know we're being obedient and doing Thy Will. And that's all we can do, Lord, the rest is up to You.

55. We have to trust You a great deal to do what we can't do. We can't do everything, but You can. But we can do our part, Lord, and our best‚ and cooperate with Thee and not be careless or unmindful, unwatchful, unprayerful. So help us, Lord‚ to do what we can, in Jesus' name.


56. If, despite your obedience to the Lord, vigilance in prayer and faithfulness to do all you can to avoid provoking the System, you meet with serious opposition or persecution such as detainment, court trials, separation of children etc., remember‚ God's in control, and He's allowed it for a purpose. Nothing happens to His children but by His Will and with His permission.

57. The Lord can turn cursing into blessing, and even cause the wrath of Man to praise Him. (Psa.76:10) "All things work together for good to them that love the Lord."—Rom.8:28. God is not going to let anything happen to you, His child who loves Him, except what is for your good.

58. Just read the Bible and you'll see that God's children almost always encountered such problems with the System. "For all that will live Godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. For it must needs be that offences will come; but woe unto that man by whom the offense cometh!"—2Tim.3:12; Mat.18:7. Sometimes they were even carried away captive, like Daniel and Ezekiel and Nehemiah. But even then, they often wound up dwelling in the king's palace, eating at his table and enjoying his protection and promotion while they carried on the Lord's Work, received their revelations‚ preached their Message, and carried out their jobs!

59. Of course‚ it wasn't always easy—this ticklish and precarious position of living in the house of your enemy whom God was using to protect and provide for you while you did the Lord's Work. There are always plenty of other enemies who are ready to make things hot for you. But somehow, the Lord will always bring you through, in spite of everything and everybody, even causing the wrath of Man to praise Him—as with the three Hebrew children in the fiery furnace, or Daniel in the lion's den or Nehemiah on the wall! In spite of everything the Enemy can do, God will always bring you through somehow, and will simply use your enemies to glorify Himself!

60. (Prays:) No matter what happens, it's all in Your hands, Lord, and "all things work together for good to them that love Thee!" We are Thy children, Lord, and we know that You are going to care for Your Own and that it's all going to somehow work out for the best in the end. PTL!


61. We thank You, Lord, that most of our troubles and worries never happen. But the Devil tries to make us afraid, to fear and to worry. So bless and keep us‚ Lord, and we know You will, as long as we stay close to You and in Thy Will. Help us all not to do anything foolish, help us not to get out of the charmed circle of Thy Will and Thy guidance. Help us to have great wisdom in protecting Thy Work, and help us, Lord, to give You all the cooperation we can in security and watchfulness and obedience.

62. We know You'll continue to protect us, Lord, as long as we're useful to Thee and obedient, serving Thee faithfully, and loyally delivering Thy Word to Thy children and preaching Thy Gospel! TYJ! So we don't have to worry about ourselves, Lord, You'll take care of us. You've continued to protect us and provide for us for all these years in spite of literally many millions of enemies, including the Devil and all his demons! You have kept us, and kept us beautifully, Lord, and at peace and rest most of the time, in tranquil places where we can continue Thy Work. We know You'll continue to take care of us and protect us and provide for us!

63. Protect Thy precious children around the world, Lord! Keep them from the vicious‚ fiendish‚ devilish Enemy that hounds and persecutes them, accuses them night and day! (Rev.12:10) And, Lord, when the Enemy comes in like a flood, raise up Thy standard against him by Thy Spirit! You said‚ "Resist the Enemy and he shall flee from thee," so help us, Lord, to resist and defeat him utterly, in Jesus' name. PTL! (Isa.59:19; Jam.4:7)

64. Keep us safely not only from our enemies, but even from our own selves‚ Lord, and our own mistakes! Bless and keep us all close to You, obedient, wise as serpents and harmless as doves‚ constantly in prayer, Lord, and close to You in obedience and in Thy Will, the hallowed protected center of Thy Will, Lord, doing what we know is right and what You want us to do, knowing therefore that You will take care of us and protect us! PYL! Hallelujah! TYJ!

65. Help us to continue to trust Thee, and not fear or worry. Like You said Lord, "Will I not care for My Own?" We know You will care for Your Own, for us and ours, for Yours! We can have perfect peace of mind and peace of heart, Lord, because we know that You love us and You are guiding us and caring for us, protecting us, and You will not let them touch a hair of our heads unless it somehow fulfills Thy plan.

66. Lord, the Devil is always threatening and breathing out slaughters (Acts 9:1), but seldom if ever accomplishing them, so we thank You for that! He tries to scare and frighten us, Lord, he threatens, but You seldom if ever let him accomplish or fulfill his threats.

67. We thank You Lord for how wonderfully You care for us all! You're the Great Shepherd Who never fails us, and we know that it's nothing but miraculous and supernatural, Lord, by Thy divine power that our Family has been kept and been able to keep going like they have in spite of all the Enemy can do.—And we know it's because they're obeying You, Lord, and pleasing You‚ and carrying out Your Message and winning souls and going into all the world and preaching the Gospel to every creature!

68. Continue to bless and keep us all in safety from our enemies, those horrible wolves that are worse than dogs!—More rapacious, more ravenous, more cruel, more terrible, more merciless than dogs! Lord, keep Thy precious sheep from those wolves! And You said the way to do it was by our being "wise as serpents and harmless as doves," so help all Thy children to learn to be wise and to be harmless, Lord.—Wise enough to stay out of our enemies' way and harmless enough for them to know that we're harmless so they won't be afraid of us! TYJ!

69. Rebuke the old Devil and his crowd, Lord, and bless and keep and help us all to keep on going for You, until the day we die, Lord‚ and You promote us to our reward. Help us to not be afraid‚ Lord, but to put our trust in You. "I will trust, and not be afraid, for the Lord is my strength and my song and My Salvation!"—Isa.12:2. PTL!

70. Rebuke the Devourer and the Enemy!—Silence the lying tongues and the accusers of Thy Saints, in the Name of Jesus, we ask Thee! They are fighting against You and Your Truth and Your children, Lord! You said, "He that toucheth you, toucheth the apple of Mine eye!"—Zech.2:8. So we know You are going to fight for us and defend us, keep us and protect us! Hallelujah!

71. These enemies are nothing!—Little creatures You have allowed to afflict us to drive us to Thee! "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth him out of them all!" Thank You for delivering and keeping us so many times!

72. "How can they expect to overcome the children of David and the followers of Moses, for they have not the power to do this thing! For Jesus is with His children, and He will go with them against all their enemies and overcome all evil, and there is none that can stand against Him! He is with His people and He is with His children and He will overcome the gates of Hell and all opposition! And all the enemies are as nothing to the children of God, the children of Jesus, and the children of Moses and of David! They shall overcome all the enemies and none can stand against them or stop them! Hallelujah!" PTL!

73. Give us strength, O Lord, and defend us and protect us from them that would slay us! Show Thy mighty arm, O God, show Thy strength, O Lord, Thy love, Thy concern, Thy care for Thy little ones! Raise up Thy arm and manifest Thy strong right hand to deliver and vindicate Thy servants, to save Thy children, to deliver Thy sheep from the hand of the Enemy and from the wolves that would destroy them and the wild dogs that beset them! O Jesus‚ deliver them, Lord!

74. Deliver these Thy little ones who feed from Thy hand, who look unto Thee with faith for succor! Deliver Thy children from the hand of the Enemy. Raise now Thy mighty sword! Raise now Thy mighty arm, Lord! We cannot deliver ourselves! We are hopeless and helpless without Thee!—Lest Israel say that mine own arm hath saved me! (Judg.7:2)

75. God damn all the enemies of your father, and all the enemies of the Lord and all those that oppose the Lord's Anointed and all those that oppose the will of your father! I hate them with a perfect hatred! (Psa.139:21,22.) Destroy them, Lord! (Tongues:) Rid me of my enemies‚ O God! Destroy them that rise up against Thy father! O Lord Jesus! In the Name of Jesus, amen. (Laughs long and loudly: )

76. Oh, to think they could try to raise their hand against the forces of God and the forces of Heaven that side with thy father!

For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee!—Isa.40:5,10–11; 41:10–13.

80. "I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children. In righteousness shalt thou be established: Thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear‚ and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. 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!"—Isa. 49:25; 54:13,14,17. PTL! TYJ!

81. Thank You Lord that we're in the palm of Thy great hand‚ where no man can remove us. We're safe under the shelter of Thy wings, hiding in Thee as a strong Tower, Lord. We don't have to worry what Man can do to us because You are in control and You are taking care of us as You always have and always will. Thank You for Your provision of our every need, Thy marvelous protection, and for helping us to get so much done for Thy Heavenly Kingdom, prospering us and making us a blessing to millions upon millions of souls who are seeking and finding Thee and Thy great love! PTL! TYJ! Amen? Hallelujah!
