If you go hard for Jesus and forsake all the things of this world, there’s Hell to pay in this world but Eternal Life in the next if you pick up your cross and follow Him! The enemy is going to do everything he can to distract you from doing what God has called you to do. He will tempt you, enable you, harass you and discourage you. But stand! The kingdom of darkness will attack you indirectly, coming after the spiritually weakest people in your immediate family and circles. Satan and his minions are ruthless coming against God’s People, especially when you are exposing the truth of the dark things of this world. The things that most people are unaware of. Esoteric in nature. Not just that. Witnessing, evangelizing, making DISCIPLES! Furthering the kingdom!
What are you called to do in God’s Army? Each and every one of God’s Children have a Calling and purpose to serve in The Body of Christ. Whether you’re on the front lines exposing the darkness or deliverance ministry, or taking down the kingdom of darkness in your prayer closet as a Mighty Intercessor of God…no matter what…when you start to throw stones, they’re gonna throw them back at you. This is why it is so important to remain as close to The Shepherd as we can! I agree with what I heard Brother Marcus Rogers say that casual Christians will become casualties. Whose side are you on? Friendship with the world is enmity against God. Jesus will spew the Lukewarm out of His mouth for it is written!
The bottom line is that we are either for God or against Him. We are for Christ or not!
Matthew 12:30 King James Version (KJV)
30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
Luke 14:26-33 Amplified Bible (AMP)
26 “If anyone comes to Me, and does not [a]hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life [in the sense of indifference to or relative disregard for them in comparison with his attitude toward God]—he cannot be My disciple. 27 Whoever does not carry his own cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow after Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me] cannot be My disciple. 28 For which one of you, when he wants to build a watchtower [for his guards], does not first sit down and calculate the cost, to see if he has enough to finish it? 29 Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is unable to finish [the building], all who see it will begin to ridicule him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish!’ 31 Or what king, when he sets out to meet another king in battle, will not first sit down and consider whether he is strong enough with ten thousand men to encounter the one who is coming against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else [if he feels he is not powerful enough], while the other [king] is still a far distance away, he sends an envoy and asks for terms of peace. 33 So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not [carefully consider the cost and then for My sake] [b]give up all his own possessions.
We live in a world full of hurting people, full of so many needs. Countless lost souls that need God! The only way is Jesus Christ, and yes I said that. Boldly and only by His Grace like everything else. I am what I am and have what I have, doing what I am doing only by The Grace of God in Jesus Name! God has a special place for all of us! Please do not give into the great delusion and deception that there is no hope or purpose in this life or that you just can’t go on anymore! Rebuke the spirits of suicide and death in Jesus Name! Learn about deliverance ministry. This is so important because the Church is in dire need of cleaning up, inside out! It’s time to show the world the love of Jesus, not religion. As followers of Christ We have a relationship with The Living God of The Bible. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The True Christian Faith is not about rituals or routines that make us feel better. It’s Fellowship with God in Jesus Alone! Yes, Jesus died to save us from Hell and for eternal life, but how many of us are aware, mindful or ever contemplate that God sent His Son to restore FELLOWSHIP between Himself and All of mankind! God wants to know you personally. He wants to be number one in your life in all things. Only Jesus can make this possible, and by The Power of His Holy Spirit.
How far are you willing to go for Jesus? How much do you love Him? What or just how much are you willing to forsake in this world for Jesus or for The sake of The Gospel? Today is certinaly The day of Salvation, but today is also the day you must choose which kingdom you serve and what side you are on. Think about it today. Meditate on this prayerfully in God’s Word, seeking His Face to see what He has for you and what His Perfect Will is for your own personal life, and calling in God’s Army. It’s time to take up our Cross folks! Persecution is going hard on The Brethren in the east. Christians in the United States and the west, are you ready to stand?
The fight is real. It’s gonna take everything you’ve got. The warfare is in prayer. Don’t be silent. Worship Jesus, serve Him, lift Him up. When we lift Him up, others are drawn to Him.
God bless in Jesus Name.
