Take Every Thought Captive…

Philippians 4:8; Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

 

Brethren, Greetings and Salutations in the name of The Lord Jesus Christ! I want to start by adding that this is the first article that I have written in over a year. The Lord has been doing a tremendous work in my life, as each day I draw closer and closer to Him.

Brethren, be of good cheer for our mighty Lord Jesus will soon return to this earth to judge both the quick and the dead. He will soon place His feet upon the Mount of Olives. Just as He ascended to the Father, He will descend back to the earth to take His rightful place as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, amen and amen! Jesus, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending. Our Lord will defeat the armies of the beast with the sword of the Word of God that comes from His mouth. He will cast both the false prophet and the antichrist alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. The enemy of our soul, that old dragon and the accuser of the brethren, will, be chained up in the bottomless pit for one thousand years. Satan will then be loosed from the bottomless pit for a little season, to gather the nations of the earth, (Gog and Magog), to encamp round about that holy city to attack the saints of God. They will try and attack that holy city where our Lord omnipotent reigns, but fire from God in heaven devours them all. Satan is then cast into the lake of fire burning with brimstone forever and ever. The false prophet, the antichrist and Satan will all be tormented day and night, forever and ever. Revelation 21:9-10; vs.9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. vs.10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Brethren, rejoice for your redemption draws ever so near. For if we will endure until the end, and love not our lives unto death, the Lord Jesus Christ waits for us with open arms, and we shall be saved. For to live is Christ, and to die is gain. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. We are living in truly amazing times, and it is time for those of us who are of the household of faith to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. The enemy of our soul battles our minds and our lives with heavy spiritual warfare. Spiritual mind warfare is being waged upon every blood bought, born again, child of God. Depression, oppression, roots of bitterness, and demonic attacks upon our minds and lives are some of the aspects of this spiritual warfare that we all fight on a daily basis. This is why the Apostle Paul told us as believers to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. This is done through prayer and supplication before the Lord. Fasting is also a very powerful weapon of our warfare that the Lord has given to us to deprive the flesh. For we are to crucify our flesh daily. We are to nail our flesh to the tree, and walk in the Spirit. We are also told by the Apostle Paul to pray without ceasing. We are to put on the mind of Christ. We can put on the mind of Christ through prayer and fasting. Seek His holy face my brethren. Seek His precious holy face and open and pour out your heart to Him, for He truly loves us. For the Lord looks upon the heart, and He knows the warfare that we face everyday as Christians. We are to put on the whole armor of God. Our armor is: 1. The helmet of salvation. 2. The breastplate of righteousness. 3. The shield of faith. 4. The sword of the Spirit (The holy Word of God). 5. The belt of truth. 6. Our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel.

The armor of God must be put on each day. We must be ready for spiritual battle, as our minds think upon good things. We must pray without ceasing, and give the first fruits of our lives to the Lord. Be ready my brethren. Be vigilant and seek His holy face with your whole heart, mind, soul and strength. Mark 12:29-30; vs.29 And Jesus answered him “The first of all commandments is, ‘Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: vs.30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength:’ this is the first commandment. We must put the Lord first in our lives in all things, and love Him above all else.

Holy Brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. We must gird our minds through prayer and fasting. Gird up the loins of your mind my brethren. For the world has been given from God, strong delusion, that they would believe a lie and be damned. Sadly, so many so-called Christians, have yet to come out of the world and are blinded by this strong delusion as well. We must all be salt and light to this lost and dying world. We must come out from among them and be separate as the Lord commands us to do. We must not lose our savor, nor should we eat meat sacrificed to idols. We are to be a shining example of God’s love for this lost and dying world. It is time for us, the remnant of believers, to make ourselves known. It is time for the holy saints of God to rise up in the Spirit, and fight the good fight of faith.

Prayer and fasting my brethren are our lifeline to the throne room of Almighty God. Submit yourselves my brethren unto the Lord. For He has a mighty work for each and everyone of us as believers. If we will be obedient to the call of the Lord, we will be used mightily of the Lord with holy miracles, signs, and Godly wonders.

Blessings to you, my most precious brethren. May the Lord Jesus Christ bless each and everyone of you. Seek His most holy face my brethren. Take hold of the horns of the altar, and if need be, repent of any unconfessed sin that might be in your lives. For we serve a holy God, and we must be holy for the Lord our God is holy. Jesus is our righteousness brethren, for we have no righteousness of our own. He has done it all, and said that, “It Is Finished!” The veil in the temple of God was torn in half, and now we have complete and total access to the holy throne room of Almighty God. We must fall on our faces before the Lord and cry out to Him with our whole hearts. We must become active in the gifts of the Spirit, through prophecy, tongues, interpretation, words of knowledge, healing, miracles, hospitality, discernment, and all of the other gifts according to the Holy Word of God. I will close for now. May the Lord Jesus Christ bless each and every one of you mightily. Come quickly Lord. Maranatha! Amen.

 

“The Shedding of Innocent Blood”

Proverbs 6:16-19: vs.16 These six things doth the Lord hate: Yea, seven are an abomination unto him: vs.17 A proud look, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, vs.18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, Feet that be swift in running to mischief, vs.19 A false witness that speaketh lies, And he that soweth discord among brethren.

 

Greetings and Salutations brethren! The Lord Jesus has placed a message upon my heart that speaks to all of the innocent blood that has been shed in this nation through the abominable practice of abortion since SCOTUS passed Roe v. Wade over 40 years ago.

All of the unborn little ones that have been murdered on the altar of convenience is an abomination, and a stench in the nostrils of a Holy God. For the blood of the innocents cries from the ground asking the Lord when their blood will be avenged?

It is time for this nation to repent. It is time for this nation to repent in sackcloth and ashes unto a holy God for it’s acceptance of the abominable practice of abortion. For the Lord knew us before we were in our mother’s womb. He also knows all of the unborn little one’s that have been torn from their mother’s wombs as well. Jeremiah 1:5 states; Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Brethren, we are indeed living in the last days. The world will wax worse and worse before the great and terrible day of the Lord. Men’s darkened and evil hearts will wax worse as well. 2 Timothy 3:13 states; But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. It is time that we, the church, repent with regards to not speaking out against the shedding of innocent blood which is taking place through the abominable practice of abortion. We must all fall on our faces before our most Holy Lord and ask Him what we can do to stop the murder of the most innocent of the innocents, the unborn little ones.

Brethren, the Lord will not suffer a nation to prosper when it murders it’s most innocent, helpless, and defenseless ones. The Lord will judge such a nation, and this nation is in judgement now. This is evidenced by the leadership of this nation which does not govern, but rules it’s people with an iron fist. If this nation does not repent of it’s sins in sackcloth and ashes, it will surely go into captivity. This nation is already captive to its sins, but it will soon become captive to another nation or nations if it’s people do not cry out to God, and turn from their wicked and pernicious ways.

Brethren, we must repent! We must repent of our sin and complacency with regards to our having done nothing to stop the abominable practice of abortion. We are called to be salt and light in this lost and dying world. We are called to let our voices be heard. We are called to fast and pray like never before for those precious little ones whose bodies are being sacrificed upon the altar of convenience.

Seek the face of the Lord Jesus my brethren. Seek His holy face, and ask Him what He would have you to do to help stop the murder of the precious unborn little ones. Amen.

 

 

“You Teach My Hands To War, and My Fingers To Fight”

Psalm 144:1-2; vs.1 Blessed be the Lord my strength, Which teacheth my hands to war, And my fingers to fight: vs.2 My goodness, and my fortress; My high tower, and my deliverer; My shield, and He in whom I trust; Who subdueth my people under me.

Greetings and Salutations my brethren! The Lord Jesus has placed a message upon my heart that speaks to those of us who are the remnant seed. It speaks to those of us who are the redeemed, and the faithful and chosen ones of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Brethren, it is time for those of us who are of the household of faith to press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. It is time for us to prepare our hearts for that which is coming upon the earth in these last days. For the Lord has sent mankind strong delusion that they should believe a lie, and be damned. Those who profess to be followers of the Lord Jesus, but do not do that which the Lord has commanded are false brethren, and they are shipwrecked from the faith. It is high time my brethren that we let our voices be heard. For our warfare is not carnal, but it is mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. Brethren, we are locked in spiritual warfare for the very souls of men, and we must be prepared for that which is coming upon the earth in these last days. We must pull down the strongholds of the enemy through prayer and supplication before the Lord. Brethren, enter your prayer closets, and seek the face of the Lord like never before. For the enemy is seeking whom he may devour. He is seeking to destroy any and all that he can. We must fight the good fight of faith, and seek the Lord’s face like never before.

Brethren, the Lord Jesus will teach your hands to war, and your fingers to fight. Trust in Him, for He is our strong deliverer. He is our mighty fortress, and our strong high tower. Seek Him brethren with a humble and contrite heart. Come boldly before the throne of grace, and seek His holy face. For we are indeed living in the last days. We are indeed living in a time of great apostasy. We are indeed living in a time when men are calling evil good, and good evil. Seek the face of the Lord my brethren, for it is high time that we who are of the household of faith put on the whole armor of God, and do battle with the enemy for the precious lost souls of mankind. Be encouraged my brethren, for the devil is a defeated foe! His head is crushed beneath our feet in the Lord Jesus Christ!

Brethren, do not be afraid of what men will do to you. Do not be afraid of what they will say about you. Be bold in the Holy Ghost, and preach the one true gospel of our most holy Lord to every creature. For our warfare is against the enemy of our soul. Our warfare is against the unfruitful works of darkness which seek to kill, steal, and destroy. Brethren, pray the Lord will teach your hands to war, and your fingers to fight against the enemy of your soul in these last days. Pray the Lord will give you a strategy for the winning of men’s souls in these last days. Pray the Lord will give you boldness in the Holy Ghost to speak out against the sins of mankind. Preach the one true gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to every creature, even unto the utter ends of the earth. Be encouraged my brethren, for the Lord will give you the words to say in that hour, and He will guide you and protect you from the wiles of the enemy. Seek His face, seek Him first. For He is worthy of all the praise, honor, and glory!

Brethren, for the sins of mankind are great. Man’s sinfulness will increase in these last days. For we are indeed living in a time of great apostasy, when men’s foolish hearts are darkened, and they think only evil continually. We are living in a time when perversion, ungodliness, and all uncleanness with greediness is glorified. Do not be deceived, for God will not be mocked, nor will He strive with man. For neither adulterers, nor fornicators, nor idolators, nor drunkards, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, and all liars will not inherit the kingdom of God. Brethren, we are living in a time when such vile affections and behaviors are glorified and placed upon a pedestal. It is time for those of us who are of the household of faith seek the face of the Lord like never before, and fight in the Spirit through prayer and supplication before the Lord against such ungodliness. For the Lord is our strong deliverer, and He will keep us in the evil day. Seek His holy face my brethren, seek His face.

Brethren, be encouraged! Trust in the Lord with your whole heart, and lean not to your own understanding. For we are more than victorious in Christ Jesus our most holy Lord. Do not let your hearts be troubled, for our names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. Let us rejoice, for we will see Him coming in the clouds one day soon and very soon! Lift up your heads my brethren, for your redemption draws ever so near! Fight the good fight of faith, and bear much fruit for the kingdom of God! Amen.

“Laying Up Treasure”

Matthew 6:19-30; Lay not up treasure for yourselves upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break in and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, where thieves do not break through nor steal.

Greeting and Salutations my brethren! The Lord Jesus has placed a message upon my heart that speaks to those of us who are of the household of faith, and to where our treasure is. Often times we find ourselves placing our faith and trust in worldly riches, and not in our risen Saviour, The Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 6:21 states; For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. It is time for those of us who are true followers of the Lord Jesus to take a good look at our lives, and examine our hearts, and determine just where our treasure truly is. Where is your treasure?

At times we find our hearts fixed upon the things of this world, and upon gaining all of the things in this life that the world tells us we need to be happy and satisfied. The apostle Paul tells us to be content with food and clothing. 1 Timothy 6:8 states; And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. The Lord Jesus calls us to put our minds and hearts on things above an not on the cares and things of this world. It is time for those of us who are the true remnant of the Lord Jesus to put our whole faith and trust in Him for our provision. We must put side every distraction of the world, and do the work of leading all men to salvation in and through our most precious and holy Lord.

Brethren, what is your heart fixed upon? Is it fixed upon the things of this world? Have you sought the face of the Lord for your lives, and what it is that He has for you, or are you trying to please the world, and identify with it? It is time for those of us who are the true remnant of the Lord Jesus to understand that He is calling us in these last days to be totally committed to Him and His kingdom. Brethren, the Lord Jesus said in His holy word, that we are to sell all that we have, and give all of the proceeds to the poor, and take up our cross and follow Him. The false teachers of prosperity want us to believe that the Lord didn’t really mean what He said in regards to us as believers giving up everything for the kingdom. I believe that Jesus meat exactly what He said in this regard. When the lord was speaking to the rich young ruler about giving up all of his worldly possessions and aspirations for the kingdom, He meant just that. The Lord Jesus was telling the rich young ruler that he must give his all for the kingdom in order to follow Him. Have you given your all for the kingdom? Have you surrendered all of your worldly aspirations to the Lord?

Brethren, we must understand that the things of this world are a distraction, and if we fix our minds upon them, we will not be fruitful for the kingdom. The Lord  Jesus did not even have a place to lay His head during his ministry. He was all about the Father’s business, and we are to follow His holy example. Matthew 8:20 states; And Jesus said to him, Foxes have holes, and the birds have nests: but the Son of man hath no place to rest his head. Brethren, the Lord will meet all of our needs. He will indeed provide for us, for He loves us, and wants us to be blessed. Phillipians 4:19 states; But my God shall supply all of your need according to his riches in glory. So my brethren, do not fix your hearts on the things of this world, and lay up treasures for yourselves, but seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Matthew 6:33 states; But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all of these things shall be added unto you.

My precious brethren, take heed lest ye fall. Put the Lord Jesus first and foremost in your lives, and do not look to the world for your provision. The Lord is our provider, and He will supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory. Do not place your trust in the deceitfulness of riches my brethren. For if you do, you will be sorely disappointed and unfruitful. Mark 4:19 states; And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

Brethren, the Lord Jesus is calling us as His followers to walk as He did. We must be about the Father’s business, and leave the cares of this world behind. Sure, we must be responsible and provide for the House of the Lord in the giving of our tithes and offerings. We are also to provide for our families, for if we do not do this we are worse than an infidel. 1 Timothy 5:8 states; But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. Brethren, we are to work with our own hands, study to be quiet, and do our own business. 1 Thessalonians 4:11 states; And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you. Brethren, all of these things we are commanded to do, and by faithfully doing these things we glorify God. However, when we put the things of this world before the Lord, we commit sin, and we no longer glorify Him.

Brethren, do not be ensnared by the enemy by believing that we are our own provider, and that we make our own destiny. The Lord Jesus is the author and the finisher of our faith, and again, he will provide all of our needs according to all of our riches in glory. Do not put your faith and trust in the things of this world. Do not lay up treasure for yourselves where the moth and rust will destroy. Lay up your treasure in heaven through prayer, fasting, and the reading and studying of god’s holy word. Be a witness to the lost of how great a salvation the Lord has wrought in your lives. Brethren, seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all of your earthly needs will be met, and then some. Give of the first fruits of your increase to the Lord, as we are commanded to do in God’s holy word. Honor God not only with your mouth, but with your works as well. Brethren, where is your treasure? Is your treasure in the things and cares of this world? If so, repent! Seek the Lord’s forgiveness, and place all of your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus, and His provision for your lives. Examine your hearts my brethren and seek the holy face of the Lord and His will for your lives. Trust in Him, for He will bring the increase if we but put our faith and trust in Him. Amen.

“Touch Not The Unclean Thing”

2 Corinthians 6:17-18; Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a mighty Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Greetings and Salutations my brethren! The Lord Jesus has placed a message upon my heart that speaks to those of us who are the called and chosen one’s of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The enemy of our soul wants us to fall back into the sin that once separated us from the Lord our God. He wants us to believe the lie that since we are saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus, we can dabble in sin, and still make heaven our home. Brethren, this doctrine of devils is being preached by the many wolves in sheep’s clothing that are in the majority of the mainstream churches today. Beware of this false teaching, and be holy as the Lord our God is holy! Do not touch the unclean thing my brethren, for we are to be separate from the world as we are a peculiar people, set apart unto the Lord. Psalm 4:3 states; But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto him.

Brethren, we must be aware of the wiles of the devil. We must understand and know his strategies that rage against our very souls. We must live our lives in direct opposition to these strategies, by not touching the unclean thing that would present itself in our lives. Brethren, do not let the enemy of your soul take control of your lives through vain deceit and lies. Do not let the cares of this world overcome the peace and joy that the Lord has freely given to you. 1 Peter 5:8 states; Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour. Remember this my brethren; the devil seeks to destroy you. He seeks whom he may devour, and his strategy is to do so at any cost. The enemy will not stop his attacks upon our lives for even a second my brethren. Be sober and vigilant for we are called us to be good soldiers of Christ in these last days. 2 Timothy 2:3-4 states; vs.3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. vs.4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

Brethren, do not let your victory in the Lord Jesus be taken away by the enemy. For the cares of this world are such that they will choke out the word in our very lives if we let them. Luke 4:19 states; And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becommeth unfruitful. Brethren, we must not become unfruitful in our lives by allowing the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches to lead us to fall. For the Lord is calling those of us who are His holy remnant to be aware of the strategy of the enemy, and fight against it, through prayer and fasting before the Lord. We must not touch the unclean things of this life, which will cause us to fall again into sin and separation from our most holy Lord.

Brethren, as followers of Jesus we are to lead victorious lives in Him. We are to fight against the sins that so easily beset us, and trust in the Lord always. We must do our first works, and not lose our first love. The Lord is calling us to fast and pray fervently. He is calling us to read and study His holy word daily. If we would but do these things, our souls will be restored each day as we follow our most holy Lord. For the Lord Jesus commands us to pray. Matthew 26:41 states; Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. We are also commanded to read and study God’s holy word. 2 Timothy 2:15 states; Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Be encouraged my brethren for if the Lord be for us, then who can be against us!

Brethren, it is time for us to repent of the sin of touching the unclean things of this world. We must seek the face of the Lord, and return to our first love, and do our first works, as we are commanded to do. Revelation 2:4-5 states; vs.4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou has left thy first love. vs.5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick from out of his place, except thou repent. The lusts of the flesh may look pleasing to the eyes, but they are indeed destructive and are the cause of many who once walked with the Lord Jesus to fall again into sin, which eventually leads to destruction and death. The devil is a thief my brethren. He comes to deceive and destroy your very soul. Be ever vigilant my brethren, be ever vigilant. John 10:10 states; For the thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Know and understand the strategy of the enemy against your very lives my brethren. Understand, that by touching the unclean things of this life, there is a price to pay. The enemy of our soul wants us to fall back into sin, and therefore, once again, be separated from our most holy Lord and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Brethren, trust in the Lord, for He loves you! 2 Peter 3:9 states; The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. The Lord is calling us to repent of our sin and compromise with the unclean things of this world. We must turn away from the unclean things that would entice us to sin. For if we do not turn away, we will be again separated from the Lord, and we will be in danger of hell fire. We who are true followers of our Lord and Savior the Lord Jesus Christ must put aside all the workings of the flesh. We must not touch the unclean things of this world. If we are doing so, we must repent, return to our first love, and do our first works. For the Lord will not be mocked, nor will He strive with man. For He is a just God, and His mercy endures forever. Be encouraged my brethren. For if you are again ensnared by the wiles and strategies of the enemy, there is hope for you. Fall on your face in repentance now. Ask the Lord Jesus to forgive you, and cleanse you from all of your sin and compromise with the unclean things of this world. He is faithful and just to forgive you of your sins, and He will restore you. 1 John 1:9 states; If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Be encouraged my brethren, for there is hope for us in our Lord Jesus. For He is strong to save, and He will finish that good and perfect work which He has started in our lives. Take heart my brethren and be vigilant! Be vigilant! Amen.

“Seek The Lord’s Will For Your Life”

Romans 12:2 states; And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.

Greetings and Salutations my brethren! The Lord Jesus has placed a message upon my heart that speaks to those of us who are His remnant in these last days. We are to pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:15-17 states; vs.15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. vs.16 Rejoice evermore. vs.17 Pray without ceasing. We are to love the Lord our God with our whole heart, soul, and strength. Deuteronomy 6:4-5 states; Hear , O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: vs.5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. We are to seek the face of the Lord in fervent prayer and supplication with our whole heart and with all of our soul. Deuteronomy 4:29 states; But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. Brethren, we are not called to conform to this world, but we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, through prayer, reading, and meditating upon the holy word of God. Ephesians 4:23-24 states; vs.23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; vs.24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Brethren, are you seeking the Lord’s perfect will for your life? Are you being transformed by the renewing of your mind in Christ Jesus our Lord? Seek His face my brethren, for in these last days, we must be girded in Him, for these are the times that try men’s souls, and we must not be found wanting.

Brethren, Deuteronomy 6:5 states; And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and all thy soul, and with all thy might. Are you following this commandment, or are you following after the lusts of the flesh which will lead to sin and eventually death?  We must walk in the Spirit, and pray without ceasing my brethren, so that we do not fall into the temptation to fulfill the lusts of the flesh. Galatians 5:16 states; This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Brethren, it is time that we who are of the household of faith examine our hearts. We must look deep within our hearts and see if we are indeed living for our most holy Lord and Savior, or if we are living for this world, and fulfilling the lusts thereof. 2 Corinthians 13:5 states; Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? We must live surrendered lives unto the Lord and be separate from the world. We must walk in the Spirit, pray without ceasing, and read and meditate upon God’s holy word daily. If we would but do these things, we put on the whole armor of God which enables us to quench the fiery darts of the wicked one, and be an effective witness of the Lord’s love to this lost and dying world. Ephesians 6:10-13 states; vs.10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. vs.11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. vs.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. vs.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.

James 1:12 states; Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Brethren, are you enduring the many temptations that beset you, or are you compromising with sin, and falling prey to the many temptations, and giving in to them. Brethren, there is a precious promise for those who love the Lord Jesus and endure divers temptation. This promise is for those who love the Lord, and not their own lives, even unto the death. For we will be given a crown of life if we hold steadfast in Him, and trust in Him to deliver us from all evil. Brethren, will you trust in the Lord Jesus to deliver you from all temptation, or will you give in to temptation and fall away from the Lord? The choice is up to you. Brethren, there is a promise given to those who give in to temptation and the lusts of the flesh. James 1:14 states; But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived it bringeth forth sin: and sin when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Beware my precious brethren, for your sin will surely find you out.

What will your choice be? Will you love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, and might, or will you choose to fall into divers temptations and follow after the lusts of the flesh? The choice is ultimately up to you. Choose ye this day whom you will serve! Will you serve the Lord Jesus Christ, which in the end, you will receive a crown of life? Or will you choose to fall into temptation, and the lusts of the flesh, which in the end will bring only sin, destruction, and death? The choice is up to you. Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand! Amen.
