Enlisted in God's Army!

Christians are enlisted soldiers in the armies of the Lord, 2 Tim 2:3-4. As valiant soldiers we are led by the Holy Spirit and hold the Bible as our combat manual. Never skulk from the battle, Eph. 6:14; Acts 26:22. Stand firmly and do it again and again especially when you are despised, when men laugh, ridicule and scorn; for the company of Christ is always a place of blessing; the place where He fights for us as we fight for Him, 2 Cor. 10:4, 1 Pet. 4:14; Mt. 5:10,12; John 15:9, 20. It is only in the repetition of the Godly sanctified actions of infiltrating the enemies strongholds that our love for Christ lights the darkness of the despiser's ill lit dens, John 3:17-19; Eph. 5:6; . However, our love can grow dim and less excited if we do not exercise it in faith and prayer whether we are coming or going, Heb. 12:3, 13; 1 Tim. 4:8, 6:12; 2 Cor. 7:4-6, 12:3. Therefore, let us boldly raise the banner of love for Him who was vigorously excited to give us His love through the never-again needed-nor-repeated work of the Cross.

The world would have us run into the dark corners of their perceived victory but Christ would have us champion His ultimatums in the open darkness of their dens of iniquity, 2 Tim. 4:17; Titus 3:15; Acts 8:26 . The mind is is wicked thing when it takes upon itself to destroy that for which Christ died Gen. 6:5; Jer. 17:9. The mind of the wicked is enamored with the collection of a flock to swell its ranks so it attacks and taunts any that oppose it and welcomes all who will join, Ps. 22:16, 83:3; Lam. 3:14, 63; Prov. 1:11, 29:16. I say attack it and attack it again with the sword of the Spirit the living Word of God that it may be released from the clutches of Satan, the evil overlord who spawns and feeds its festering blight, 1 Pet. 2:9 .

The enlistments of the ranks of God's armies are always running and walking but never fainting, Is. 40:31; for it is the Lord God who upholds them in the fight and it is He that will uplift them in His victory, Ex. 23:27; Deut. 7:23. One day we will all glory in His splendor and beauty as He unfolds and unveils the timelessness of eternity, Ps. 27:4; Is. 28:5; 1 Cor. 15:29; 1 Pet.1:4 . It will be there where we live and we move in Him alone carrying out the work of our worship that the fruit of our labors will be born upon the wings of His Holy Angels!! Ps. 90:17

God Bless!!

25 Reasons to Believe - In Jesus FREE EBOOK

A while back the Barna Group released a report titled, "Six Reasons Young Christians Leave Church."

Under reason two, "Teens’ and twenty-somethings’ experience of Christianity is shallow" they write: 

"A second reason that young people depart church as young adults is that something is lacking in their experience of church. One-third said “church is boring” (31%). One-quarter of these young adults said that “faith is not relevant to my career or interests” (24%) or that “the Bible is not taught clearly or often enough” (23%). Sadly, one-fifth of these young adults who attended a church as a teenager said that “God seems missing from my experience of church” (20%)." 

If one takes a look at the modern church-scape I can see why. The gap between those pastors and teachers that are fired up about Jesus and those that do not preach all of the gospel was never more ap…

Fornication - The Acceptable Sin?

In the Bible there are several sexual sins that are categorized under the term,"Sexual Immorality." Not the least of these is, "Fornication." However fornication has become an outdated, and in many places, the acceptable sin in the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries. As a matter of fact, many do not even know what the term "fornication" means. Since the advent of the modern Bible translation, many have never heard of it. This article focuses on what the Scripture says about this out-of-control acceptable sin.

Fornication is mentioned thirty-six times in the Bible (MT), thirty-two times in the New Testament. In almost all modern translations the word has been substituted with, "sexual immorality" and has come to mean any number of sexual sins. However, sin (missing the mark) is still sin and sin still separates a person from God. So why has this sin become so acceptable even in modern churches????

Cardboard Signs and Saying Yes to God

Perhaps you have seen the story of "Daniel's Gloves". It has been floating around the internet since 2001 according to snopes.com. They also tell us the original author is Richard Ryan the assistant Pastor of a Church in Indiana.  I refer to this story—which you will find posted below mine—because of the effect that helping one in need can actually have on a believer’s life.
One of the things I have done in the past is monitor just how many people there are who simply pass on by those who are holding a sign stating “Will work for food” or “Need Help for me and my children.” If you ask the hurting they will tell you there are literally hundreds and hundreds who just will not help. Truly it is a sad testimony that “one or a few bad apple(s) can spoil a whole bushel.” It is definitely something I also have observed. For some reason we either fear them, fear confrontation or fear being deceived. Whatever the reason, I often wonder how God feels about it.

The Bride of Christ Has Made Herself Ready!!

The Bible teaches of an upcoming Wedding Day that the Church should be on cloud nine over!! Rev. 19:7-9 states:


Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready." And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!' " And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God."

The passage above speaks of two distinct events, the Marriage of the Lamb and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Both of these events are reminiscent of the ancient Jewish wedding ceremony where the Bride would become betrothed to her Groom and he would go away to build her a home. In the meantime she would wait anxiously for his return with shouts from his wedding party of "The Bridegroom Comes!" When the shouts were heard she wou…

"The Ten" and the Eleventh Horn of Daniel

What are we to make of Daniel’s Eleventh Horn (Dan. 7:8); could it be that the former, yet revived, WEU or Western European Union will make up the 10 nations the coming Antichrist King will rule over? Read on.
Most people have never heard of the WEU; however they have existed since 1954. Their purpose was to enforce the amended version of the Treaty of Brussels of 1948. From Wikipedia we read:
Since the end of the Cold War, WEU tasks and institutions have been transferred to the Common Security and Defence Policy which is being framed for the geographically larger and more comprehensive European Union. This process was completed in 2009, when a solidarity clause between the member states of the European Union which was similar (but not identical) to the WEU's mutual defense clause, entered into force with the Treaty of Lisbon. The states party to the Modified Treaty of Brussels consequently decided to terminate that treaty on 31 March 2010, with all the remaining WEU's activit…
