I have been watching the world around me – through my own eyes and the eyes of the Lord. I have seen too many things that are the work of Satan.
Infidelity in marriage, shattering of families through lies and slander, broken trust and relationships through selfishness and insensitivity to others, threats and intimidation against the children of God for the sole purpose of protecting oneself.
These all are the works of Satan; and those works are gathering momentum – showing indeed that time is running short.
The spirit world is in full battle, fighting for the souls of men.
We, the children of the One True God, need to step into the fray and battle against the unseen forces of evil.
We have the strength and power of the Almighty God at our disposal to wage this battle, and we MUST use it.
The only alternative is to watch the souls of those around us perish in hell.
“10 Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace: 16 above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19 and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel. 20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” Ephesians 6:10-20
Stand firm, ye children of God, and fight the fight that has been brought to us. The eternal future of those we know and love depends on us.
