God has no opposition

Opposition comes with a lot of responsibilities because for anyone to challenge a system, a force, a group or even a constituted authority — a government or an organisation

Isaiah 45:22-23: “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. 23: I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return that unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”

Opposition comes with a lot of responsibilities because for anyone to challenge a system, a force, a group or even a constituted authority — government or an organisation — such a person must possess the ability to march force with force for his or her opposition to be meaningful. In a situation where the opposing power lacks the strength to do this, his or her opposition will be nonsensical.

In the political scene, there are political parties vying for the central seat of power and any of them that is privileged to win the general elections forms the government, while others become oppositions. In any democracy, the political parties have the right to register and sponsor candidates to contest in elections. Also, the parties have the right to challenge each other or any party that cannot control the state.

When it comes to God, this is not so, because by all standards, God stands alone. He is the creator of heaven and earth. He created man. God provides for man to live comfortably on earth with a view of bringing him to His kingdom in heaven. God is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. No human being, irrespective of position or status, can oppose God. This is why God in Isaiah 43:10-13 said: “Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am He: before Me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after Me. 11: I, even I, Am the Lord; and beside Me there is no Saviour. 12: I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are My witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God. 13: Yea, before the day was I am He; and there is none that can deliver out of My hand: I will work, and who shall let it?”

Nobody or power can stop God from carrying out His plans or His activities. God created human beings for His pleasure and they do not have the ability to challenge Him.

The only option left for man is to obey the words of God in their totality. In the lead scripture above, God made it clear that He is God and there is none beside Him. When God determines to save an individual, there is no force that can stop Him. Power belongs to God and in that capacity He can empower His children to challenge and defeat the Kingdom of Darkness; Devil and his agents. It is on this premise that Luke 10:19 says: “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

God remains the only power no one can oppose and whosoever He empowers will overcome all his enemies and nothing will hurt him. The children of God are empowered to challenge the principalities and powers and all that represent the Kingdom of Darkness. As children of the all-powerful God, sicknesses and diseases have no power over us; the afflictions of the Devil, irrespective of where they are coming from will never overwhelm us.

No other being has the power to create, other than the Almighty God. Genesis 1:1-3 states thus: “In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the earth. 2: And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3: And God said, let there be light: and there was light.”

In the Biblical accounts of creations, God did not struggle to get things done, rather He spoke things into existence; a clear demonstration that power belongs to Him. There is no other being present or past that has demonstrated the seamless execution of projects without exerting force. This clearly proves that no one has the capacity to oppose Him. When God starts anything, He brings it to a successful conclusion, as all the resources for any project are within His beck and call.

This is why Romans 9:28 says: “For He will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.” As a proof of His power, and to show that no force can oppose Him and that He has all the resources under heaven and the earth, He does not and can never abandon any project.

Whatever He starts must be finished in good time in accordance with His will. From all ramifications, God has no challenger and no being, demon or agent of the Devil has the temerity to oppose Him. This is why Romans 8:31 says: “What shall we then say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

We have seen the enormity of God’s power and by all standards, He is power personified. When He gives protection, no force under heavens can thwart it or harm the person so protected. It is a wise counsel, therefore, to embrace God wholeheartedly and serve Him at all cost. We need to follow Him to make heaven and be with Him forever in Jesus’ name.

Testimony Of The Lord’s Doing: Terrible Strange Rashes Miraculously Healed
MY name is Brother Johnson God Bless. I joined the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Ministries on May 2, 2022. Two yeas ago, rashes appeared on a particular part of my body and I took it for mere rashes and bought a cream to clear it. Surprisingly, the rashes spread all over my body and I began to stay indoors, because I could no longer put on my shirt or go to work. When the situation became unbearable, I went for test and it was confirmed to be fungal infection. I went for treatment, but there was no improvement; so, I travelled to Ondo State to see my relations and for further treatment. My people took me to different places, yet there was no solution. I went to a church and after prayers, the pastor prepared a sacrifice, which I carried at night to a specific place. After the sacrifice, I recovered a bit, but was still struggling with some parts of my body. I managed the situation till last year, when I was referred to someone in Ilorin, Kwara State. I travelled from Asaba to Ilorin for the treatment. After the treatment, I began to recuperate, but a particular part of my body would just not heal, so, I went back to Ondo State, where I came in contact with The Lord’s Chosen, through a crusade titled: “From Sorrow To Joy.”

It was after the programme that I began to properly get myself. Recovering from the affliction, I left the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries and the affliction returned. My sister then advised, I join the ministry, which I systematically turned down.

Still suffering from the affliction, I attended a crusade of another big ministry in Asaba, thinking with the prayers of their General Overseer, I will be healed; but that did not happen.

Fortunately, I heard of another Lord’s Chosen crusade, “…And The Enemies Submitted,” and was willing to attend, but had no money because I have been at home for months as a result of the sickness, so, I worshipped in one of their branches in Asaba. After, the programme, I attended the ministry’s Thursday service, and after the service I went to see the pastor, who prayed for me and also gave me an assignment to pray for seven days. It was on the second day of the assignment that I began to notice some positive changes all over my body. And within days, I was totally healed. I never returned to the hospital nor took any drugs. Praise the Lord!

I appreciate the Lord for His divine healing upon my life, may His name be glorified forever in Jesus’ name.
