The soldiers before they are sworn into the armed forces have to march up and down the mountains of Masada... and with blood, sweat and tears dripping from them they are handed a gun in one hand and a bible in the other and are told; "you can't defend your country until you know where you came from...."
Amy and TJ (one of the guys from our group that was only around 20 years old who was an amazing Warrior for God)............such a blessing to our group.....
Still saying over and over in my head......"Greater is He who is in me than he who is in this world."
I am a child of God..........You are a child of God.......We are saved by His precious Grace.........through faith.......Why is that SO hard for us to get that in this crazy life? Being a Christian is hard...........It is a fight everyday of our life........We have to fight the good fight with Faith........
Ask your-self this question today.........Are you living one-way during the week and living a different way on Sunday in church? We still have a sense of selfishness.....we are serving two Gods.....and that cannot be.......we are basically living a lie.............Why are we so adjusted to this world that we have lowered our morals and standards to just simply fit in?
Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
How long has it been since you gave away something instead of getting something?
How long has it been since you had joy in your steps instead of mourning?
How long has it been since you had a song in your heart for Jesus?
How long has it been since you ministered to someone else?
Your current situation has nothing to do with you standing with Jesus!!!!!!!
He is perplexing His Kingdom forward with or without us..........
Those who tarry.....will win in the end...those who fight the good fight will remain standing in the end....
look at some of the promises made to the 7 churches in Revelation 2 and 3.( This is only a few verses please read all of Revelations 2 and 3 when you have time.)
Revelation 2: 7 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
11 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who is victorious will not be hurt at all by the second death.
17 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it.
26 To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— 27 that one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’[b]—just as I have received authority from my Father. 28 I will also give that one the morning star. 29 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
At the end of each address to the seven churches you will see that He said to them; "HE THAT OVERCOMES."
We have to be over comers! We are being enticed by the devil to live loose lives! We are being taught by this world that we can live any way we want too and still know Jesus! That we can live immorally and go to heaven.....This can not be! God has given us "FREE CHOICE." You can't go to heaven no matter how much you can quote scripture and no matter how much you read your bible if you are living immoral lives....
praying to be enlightened by God today,
