Coming this new year
Good Morning brothers and sisters. I am praying that coming in this New Year, your relationship with Jesus grows and we all become His children on the same page with His goals in mind. But God laid on my heart this morning, be very careful this coming New Year. And He sent me to 1 Peter 5:8-9- Be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. You see, Satan, our adversary can not have us coming together. He can not have us standing on Jesus and nothing else. He needs us to be divided and he will use whatever means is necessary. He doesn't care for you or me, he only cares about destroying those who want to live for Jesus. So we must start each day with prayer and thanksgiving, put on the armor of God. If you don't know that is in Ephesians 6. Put on your belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shoes for the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation and sword of the Spirit. Go and read the full text and it will tell you why we put this on. We also need to remember our battle is not against humans but the evil of this world. And if you are fully walking with Jesus, then Satan is coming for you. If he can't get to you, then he will get to the ones closes to you. So now go back to 1 Peter 5:6-7- this is how we do it- Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. He is our way maker. Come join us on Sunday mornings on Facebook as we study the Beatitudes. It is realtruthforchrist. We all need to come under the mighty teaching of the Lord. Have a blessed day and rise up children of God, rise up!
