We cannot become intimate with Jesus any greater than the amount of revelation Truths that we have. This is our limit. The more revelation Truth we get, the more we can walk in victory, and the more we can believe God.
Our faith level should expand with the Truths we know so that we can go back to God and say with confidence, "God, You promised this in Your Word. Now I expect it to manifest."
The devil won't waste any time to come to you and upset these words. You say to him: "You can't kill me, devil! Death and Life are in the power of the tongue ... my tongue, not yours. I'm washed in the Blood of Jesus ... I belong to Him. I'm God's property, and you can't tell me that you're going to kill me!"
He can't do any of his other works of darkness against you either. Once we become born again, our "old man" died. We are a brand new creature in Christ Jesus and we must walk in this newness.
