Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. I am amazed at the lack of understanding within the Church regarding the times in which we live. Make no mistake, we are at war and our enemy is at the door and he is cunning. 1 Peter 5:8 says:
"Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. And he knows his time is (emphasis added) short and he has ramped up his assaults."
So what is our response? Once again, we need to seek wisdom and TRUTH, which is found in only one source...The BIBLE, and the Bible alone! That being said, we find our answer in Ephesians 6:10-18:
"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints."
So what are you waiting for Church? Jesus is at the threshold of Heaven awaiting the Father’s command to go and get His bride! If you have a family member, neighbor, friend, co-worker, acquaintance, etc., tell them about Jesus, pray for them often and be about the Father’s business. 1 Corinthians 9:24 says:
"Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win."
Personally I want to hear these words found in Mathew 25:21:
"His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’"
What about you?!?
