“Always carrying about in the body the dying of The LORD Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So, then death is working in us, but life in you.” 2 Corinthians 4:10-12 NKJV
Those of you who believe you are in Christ — but are secretly caught up and enjoy the cares of this temporal life and everything it offers — have already been deceived, believing Christians cannot help being impacted by various onslaughts swung at them in the world!
A true Christian will cringe at the things that grieve the heart of God. For we shall fully know them by their fruits.
People say, “Do not judge!” but I say, you better judge them by their fruits!
There will be evidence in our lives that we belong to Christ. You cannot say you love Christ and practice sin. (James 2 14-26)
However, and not limited to also things that go on in school, sexual immorality, a lot of what is taught in colleges what you watch on television, pornography, what type of music you listen to, idolatry, rebellion, but these are only some, there are so many ways that Satan especially targets Christians!
Why? Because you are ‘marked’ for The Kingdom of God.
You threaten the works of darkness, because those who walk in the light expose the darkness. Walking in the Spirit of God gives you Authority over all the powers of darkness.
That is why the enemy uses everything he can to douse your light and to captivate you so that he covers you to put your light out!
Every evil plot, scheme, conspiracy, and every evil entity recognizes you as a threat if you have received Christ within your heart and live for God!
You may wonder why, since you decided to follow Christ, that all of the sudden all sorts of vile information and things are being thrown in your face on social media, on television, games etc. — and even so-called ‘friends’ try to get you involved.
Beloved, this is an invasion tactic to gain access as much as possible to contaminate and get you to compromise the good news of Jesus Christ! Their desire is to corrupt your pure sincere heart of love for God.
Those who love God do what He says. That is how we know one another in The Kingdom, for those who are our true mother, sister, brother, mother-in-law etc. These are they who hear The Word of God, and do it that is our eternal family.
Beloved, we need one another, and especially when we see these things are happening. And we see the things happening on the earth that were foretold by Jesus Christ.
The LORD is returning soon and there is power released when we are counted as one in unity! But we have got to be fruit watchers.
We are going to need each other more and more than we expected, things in this world are going to be extremely chaotic, insane, and great darkness shall cover the earth, but we, the people of light, need to find our place and we need to know those who labor among us. As we gather, there shall be greater Light.
We are in a war — but there are many battles!
The life we are to live is for Christ. There are people who believe there is no battle for the Christian any longer once they accept Christ, and they believe you can live anyway you want — and still make it to heaven!
We must stand for Truth. Faith without works is dead. (Study the doctrine of the Nicolaitans)
But if that were true, why did God give us weapons, armor, and the Word of God? Our battles are not against flesh or blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places. This is truly Spiritual Warfare. (Ephesians 6:10-20)
Beloved, we must begin to believe God over man’s opinions. If it isn’t in The Bible, reject it!
Of course, Satan doesn’t want to be believed, he had done a lot of work in stealth mode but now he is coming out in the open!
Satan is targeting backsliders, the lost and leadership! Ministers in all corners of the globe need to stand for the truth instead of what promotes man, or what feels good with its many distractions, temporal pleasures, ups and downs, forever acquiring but never really understanding the knowledge of the truth.
You see that the world wants you to compromise the whole Truth found in The Holy Bible and many are peddling a gospel that is not the gospel. Nothing this world has to offer can even touch what God has offered you, with Him forever in Glory!
You find yourself on a balance of declining insight and end up floundering at every event, because it always proves a dead end.
You may be reading this, and it is speaking deeply to your spirit, and it is telling you have only scratched the surface of what God in Christ has for you!
There is absolutely nothing in this life, no relationship, no material possession, or an important appointed possession, or any of the positions of this world!
Why? Because many that put all their confidence in an organization, even within some churches, are being made and challenged to live their lives as the government dictates. It is coming beloved, it is just a matter of time.
Yes, we are living in a world that is teetering on its axis in more ways than one. What the true believer has is a much greater offer of eternal value! But The LORD said that the servant is not greater than his master.
Jesus became the Son of Man to live his life as a man to identify with our lives and become our Living sacrifice without spot or blemish.
What He did was he gave himself up willingly and he was tempted in all points yet without sin. Jesus understands our struggle and is familiar with the feeling of our infirmities’.
We must discern the remnant church and recognize believers that need discipleship and prayer.
There is much to do, but we need to think out of the religious box and begin to look inward and then outward. Amen?
“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:15-16 NKJV
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
