Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet.
Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them.
You’ll need them throughout your life.
God’s Word is an indispensable weapon.
In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare.
Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters.
Keep your eyes open.
Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.
But He’s already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don’t take yourself too seriously—
take God seriously.
We have come to this TIME and PLACE to STAND before heaven and earth to bring glory and honor to our heavenly Father with the faith of a child who simply trusts and obeys whatever he is told to do.
My brothers and sisters, try hard to be certain that you really are called and chosen by God. If you do all these things, you will never fall.
And you will be given a very great welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We have come to God’s Kingdom of His Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus Christ for such a time as this. It is essential that we are prepared and trained and exercised in The Way, The Truth and The Life. There will be a test – it is an OPEN BOOK test for He has already given us everything that pertains to Life and Godliness through KNOWING Him as the only Way that leads to the Father for no man comes to the Father except by Him. Jesus is the Living Word of Almighty God the Father and heaven and earth shall pass away but only the Word of God stands the test.
Where do you STAND with Jesus?
Is His Word alive with you? Are you alive within Him?
For it is only In Him that we LIVE, MOVE and have our BEING.
Apart from Him we can do nothing.
Father God, help me to have a teach-able spirit and willing heart to learn and follow in Your Spirit so I will grow more and more in Your Truth by making a practice of Your lessons. I know that all things You allow into my life are for training in righteousness so that I lack nothing in order to stand where You place and to go where You send as I daily walk in faith, hope and love with You. Use me as You will not as I want. In Jesus’ name Amen.
Teach me to have a child like heart! So I can sing and dance and share Your great mercy with a world that is hungry and thirsty for the Real and Everlasting Source of Life, again, I ask in Jesus’ name Amen.
