“For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior…” [Isaiah 43:3a]

It was not the first time I had heard on national television that the Christians in this nation are under attack.  Not surprising given the timing of the prophetic season we are living in.  This time it became a signal to stop and meditate on the question, what is our response?

  1. Make sure you understand the purpose for which you are living in this time.
  2. Make sure you know the fullness of who Christ is in you and who you are in Christ.
  3. Take the Word of God as a guide to daily living and the only directive necessary.
  4. Decide what or who you are willing to die for.
  5. Understand we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers of wickedness in high places.
  6. We are living in spiritual warfare, but the battle is the Lord’s.
  7. Live your witness before all men without fear or manipulation.
  8. Wear a mantle of prayer continually.
  9. Be continually filled with the Spirit of God

The time we are living in is a time when the kingdom of God is growing exponentially.  It is a kingdom of Light, therefore it shall be seen and by its presence push back the darkness simply because it is.  Like lamps turned on at dusk; by the time darkness descends the lights are already ablaze and burning.

Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes I have made him.”  [Isaiah 43:7]  God has created you, formed you and made you to stand, therefore stand!
