Ephesians 5:16 “Above all taking the shield of faith wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.”
Faith is the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of living as Christ did. To gain the abundant life we must use faith in every area of our lives. The book of Hebrews dedicated a whole chapter with 40 verses on the subject.
I am learning that faith is a powerful weapon that can disrupt the plans of the adversary. It has been hard to stay faithful when I am being beaten over and over again. But I must push on. The prize is worth it! My spiritual inheritance is worth it! I have to continue to fight the good fight of faith.
I hope this encourages someone to do the same. Iron sharpens iron. You are not alone!
Blessings to you,
So today Abba Father confirmed His word over me.
I was overjoyed and extremely encouraged!
Things that were spoken were almost forgotten. The seeds planted seemed to NEVER bloom. Yet I have buds now! Glory to God O Most High!
I just wanted to say the wait is worth it! Do NOT give up! The Bible tells us to “not get weary in well doing.” He makes us wait for our good.
When you read the title of this you may have thought a place where believers gather weekly to worship. Or a place to experience the presence of God. Those are good but not totally correct.
Don’t kill the messenger. Please hear me out. The word of God says to us in Corinthians that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Later in the Holy book it says where two or more are gathered in my name there I am in the midst. I being the Most High God in the statement. Christ told us that if we abide in Him, while He is in the Father then the Father abides in us. Also we know that God is Love. And we should abide in Love.
So chruch in the book of Acts was a house or hidden place where believers ate a meal, sang praise to God and did miracles. Shoot even a jail was church.
Sadly America and other nations have lost sight of what church really is and should be. It has become a “charitable organization” ran by “donations” and faith. An agency of sorts. I would say to them in leadership as Christ Jesus did “He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying…” Come back to your first love. We are the body of Christ! No group of people are more worthy of the name “children of God” than the next. He came for the Jew and Gentile.
If you have opened the door to Christ Jesus then you are His Church. His Holy Spirit will lead and guide you into all truth. Let us not forget that “The truth shall set us free”!
Peace be unto you!
