“This is what the Lord says to you: Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army.
For the battle is not yours, but God’s” [2 Chronicles 20:15]
In today’s world the deception of the enemy is subtle and the world always has ‘just the right way’ to do things. After all we have become ‘sophisticated’, and politically correct.
Thank God for the men and women that are used on the stage of national exposure and stand firm for their belief—that the Word of God is God’s authority and Jesus Christ is the Son of God. In the days of Eric Liddell and Chariots of Fire it was admired and respected—no more. Last year it was Truett Cathy, recently it was Louie Giglio and from the media reports many more Christians are ‘in the news’. They are brilliant lights in the darkness receiving persecution as this nation slides toward the pit of hell. They fulfill the word from Paul in speaking of this depraved generation, “in which you shine like stars in the universe” [Philippians 2:15]
This is the hour of persecution and every man will have his moment of choice but what has preceded the choice is a lifestyle lived out in alignment with the Word of God. Nothing else will stand the heat of the fire. The only thing that can withstand the fire is the purity found in Holiness. Holiness is what God is…the only safe place is found IN God. This has been accomplished for those who have given their lives to God through Jesus Christ and walk in obedience to His leading.
Forgive and forget those circumstances that hold you back from seeking God with your whole heart—for those who do…stand fast, fear not…the battle is the Lord’s.
