WHAT WE MUST DO TODAY!If you're a child of God, then you must understand that you're greatly blessed, favored and highly honored, because you're an heir to God in Christ Jesus, with a very great destiny with God! As a result you're greatly envied by God's enemy, Satan, who wants you down and out. But be assured that God will keep you alive and well until you receive your inheritance.
Luke 22:31,32.Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift EACH you like wheat. But I have PRAYED for you, Simon, that your FAITH should not fail. So when you have REPENTED and TURNED TO ME AGAIN, strengthen your brothers (and sisters). The Christian race is not a 100 yards/meters dash. No, it's a marathon and a long journey. And it's not always smooth and comfortable. Sometimes, it could get very rough; going through twisty, difficult and tempestuous circumstances and terrains. As a result, we tend to slack, become weary, struggle and even slip, like the Apostles. This could happen in our spiritual walk, health, economy or finances, or in both our formal and informal relationships. BUT EVERYTHING, EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE OR SITUATION EVENTUALLY WORKS TOGETHER FOR OUR GOOD! Read Romans 8:28-30.
Now, this Christian journey mainly involves the battle that rages in our minds, as Satan attacks our minds and thoughts with negative thoughts to pull us back into spiritual Egypt or unbelief and sin. Yes, our mind is the real battle field and when we renew it constantly with God's Word and then yield our body or physical desires to obey God and His Word, we're assured of total victory in this battle of life, every time. Hallelujah!
As a faithful Christian and spiritual soldier, when you spot your brother or sister struggling, stumbling and falling, don't mock, criticize and castigate. When we do that, we're giving our support and solidarity to Satan whose aim and goal is to steal, kill and destroy. Read John 10:10. This is a life or death, hell or heaven issue. It's serious business.
Consequently, we must offer the most important form of support called INTENSIVE INTERCESSION OR SELFLESS PRAYER. All twelve (12) apostles, specially chosen after an all night prayer to God, betrayed and then abandoned Jesus Christ, but PRAYER saved and restored back eleven (11) of them, as they repented and Jesus forgave them! Praying for your brothers and sisters who're passing through or undertaking a spiritual test, is the most important thing you'll ever do to please God. THAT'S A PROOF OF ABSOLUTE FAITH IN GOD AND TRUE LOVE, THE LOVE OF CHRIST. Hallelujah!
Acts 12:5,11.But while Peter was in prison, the Church prayed earnestly for him. Peter finally came to his senses after the miraculous release. "It's really true!" he said. "The Lord has sent His angel and saved me from Herod and from what the Jewish leaders had planned to do to me!"
James 5:16.Confess your sins to (be transparent with) each other and PRAY FOR EACH OTHER so that you may be healed, delivered and blessed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.
The greater your call, role or destiny in God's Kingdom, the more bumpy, twisty and challenging your Christian journey will be, not because God wants it that way but, because you're the primary target of God's jealous enemy, that wicked, crafty and lying Satan! But NEVER BE AFRAID OF HIM, Jesus Christ ALREADY defeated him. Stand strong in prayer, fasting and God's Word. Resist this enemy of your soul and your eternal destiny with God, because he's like a roaring lion going about seeking who he'll distract, defeat and devour. But you're more than a conqueror. Hallelujah!
Now, with the influx and prevalence of immorality, corruption, wickedness, the perversion of homosexuality and divorce, breaking down family units and destroying the moral and emotional health of innocent, precious children, Jesus Christ calls you to give your heart and life to Him today. You must be born again, He says. And Jesus Christ also calls the Church, His people into INTENSIVE INTERCESSION or SELFLESS PRAYER.
The spiritual and moral state of our society and this Nation is a perfect reflection of the level of moral and spiritual discipline and state of the Church, the body of Christ here. If we would intensify our selfless praying, there would be great REPENTANCE and then EXPLOSIVE ANOINTED REVIVALS all over this precious Nation, and the blessings will overflow into centuries to come and generations unborn. Hallelujah!
