The enemy is a failure.

Remember math? I remember in any of my high school math classes thinking, "When am I ever going to need to know ANYTHING about a hypoteneuse?" That day hasn't come, but remember those logic questions they used to ask? Like if A=B and B=C then A=C. Or something like that. You could also do the opposite too, like if A=B but B does not = C, then A does not = C. (trust me - this is going to be okay...)

So God impressed a verse to me today.

Is. 54:17 "No weapon formed against you shall prosper." Another version says that no weapon formed against you will stand. An antonym (or opposite) of stand or even prosper could be fall or fail. Right? So, I thought about wording the verse like this:

Every weapon formed against you will fall or fail.

Every thing the enemy comes at us with will fail. Nothing he comes at us with will prosper! How cool is that? I'm probably using extremely bad theology - so.....don't memorize MY version of the verse, ok? :)

Who knew math would come in handy while expounding on verses? I didn't. I wonder what else its useful for?

Thanks for the post... I was starting to worry. Thanks for the encouragement. I know I will be looking at verses in a new way.

I think your theology is spot on :) Thanks for sharing it!
