Today I was reminded that we are in a war and that we are not be entangled and wrapped up in the affairs of this world!
“You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. The hardworking farmer must be first to partake of the crops. Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things” 2 Timothy 2:3-7.
“My dear ones, to be so entangled with the world and all of the entrapments will cause you to be spiritual insensitive, and dull to respond to Me and My Word. You must be aware of the times and the seasons according to My Word, and be alert to the signs of the times, but not overwhelmed and overcome by the news of today.
I have written to you of the things that must come before that great and notable day. If you would know and understand My Word, you would know that this is not the time to faint but to look up! I Am true to My promises, I will come for you! You can count on Me, I will not leave you in turmoil.
I know how to deliver the godly who continue to live upright and habitually before Me in righteousness. So be aware and cognizant of everything going on around you, but do not fear, in fact you must rejoice for you know that your redemption draws closer than ever before. Shine brightly in the midst of darkness, show others that grope in the great darkness that has come upon the earth, that you can see and you know the way out!
Be to this world My city on a hill, that all men may distinguish and know the difference between you and all other deceptive ways that are being offered. Do not allow the truth to be blurred with the lies that our enemy propagates. I require you to be bolder in your faith, you must cry loud and spare not.
You must smash the idol gods into mere dust, by living uprightly and holy, but also declaring that you know the Way. Do not fear their faces nor any perceived danger that may lead you into silence. I Am with you and I go before you to surround you as a shield!
I will not let My witnesses fail. I have and will continue to open the doors for you to declare My holiness as the one and only Way. Many of the voices that I once anointed have become faint and have blended into the voice of the world, because of fear of becoming an outcast and rejected from their places of prominence.
That is why I Am anointing the voices of those out of obscurity and unknown places, those who have no crowds or numbers to weigh or think on. I Am their majority and they will heed My voice and declare unashamedly and unafraid My Words to a dying and deceived generation. They will walk in My signs and wonders to demonstrate that I Am with them.
I have always wanted those who would follow Me with their whole heart, no matter the cost. They will not forget Me, no, I Am first in their heart. They will obey and do exploits, it will cause many to come and I will gather My own special jewels to Myself.
These are My end-time harvesters, they will help Me gather! Be bold, My dear ones, your Redeemer will not forget your labor of love. Do not faint, but be renewed in your faith. I will come for you!”
“If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning” 2 Peter 2:20.
“And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked, (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished” 2 Peter 2:7-9.
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” Luke 21:28.
