[Download Mp3] NO WEAPON FORMED SHALL PROSPER BY DR. PAUL ENENCHE

The promise of God concerning our safety was solemnly laid down, as the heritage of the servants of the Lord, as that which they may depend upon and be confident of, that God will protect them from their adversaries both in camps and courts. First, From their field-adversaries, that think to destroy them by force and violence, and dint of sword: “No weapon that is formed against thee (though ever so artfully formed by the smith that blows the coals, v. 16, though ever so skillfully managed by the waster that seeks to destroy) shall prosper; it shall not prove strong enough to do any harm to the people of God; it shall miss its mark, shall fall out of the hand or perhaps recoil in the face of him that uses it against thee.’’

No weapons formed against it shall prosper long, and therefore the folly of its enemies will at length be made manifest to all, for they are but preparing instruments of ruin for themselves. Secondly, From their law adversaries, they think to run them down under the color of right and justice. When the weapons of war do not prosper there are tongues that rise in judgment. Both are included in the gates of hell, that seek to destroy the church; for they had their courts of justice, as well as their magazines and military stores, in their gates.

The day is coming when God will reckon with the wicked men for all their hard speeches which they have spoken against him, Jude 15. The last words refer not only to this promise but to all that goes before: This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord. God’s servants are his sons, for he has provided an inheritance for them, rich, sure, and indefeasible. God’s promises are their heritage forever (Psalm 119:111), and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord. God will clear up the righteousness of their cause before men.
