Reality vs. Truth

If we are to walk in the Spirit, live by faith, and prevail against our enemy, it is essential that we understand the constant collision and integration of the two worlds we simultaneously live in. We are told to “walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh,” (Eph. 5:16). The flesh, made up of the body and the soul, mind, will, and emotions, “lusts against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh; and ...

Walking In Futility

Paul admonishes us “That you should no longer walk… as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to licentiousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness”, (Eph.4:17).
Walking in the futility of our minds is a very unstable and deceptive place to ...

It Is Not Too Late!

The power of TRUTH is in its ability to produce freedom in those who will heed it. Jesus said, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” (Jo. 8:32). If knowing the truth sets us free and “Whom the Son sets free is free indeed”, (Jo. 8:32 & 36), then, freedom, and the peace it brings become the true markings of liberty in our life; not the liberty to be reckless or sin without conscience or ...

Profanity In The House Of God

“For both prophet and priest are profane; Yes, in My house I have found their wickedness,” says the LORD. (Jer. 23:11)

 

What are the signs of wickedness that the LORD found so disturbing in the midst of His own children? And are those signs in the church today? As citizens of the Kingdom of God it behooves us to examine our own temples and traditions and drive out the ...

Who Has Bewitched You?

Satan has worked and continues to work, even now, to produce the counterfeit of truth in every arena of life and human endeavor. Imitations, look-a-likes, clones, substitutes, and angels of light permeate every level of human consumption and daily interaction. His handiwork is integrated into every aspect of every thing that occupies mankind including the church of Jesus Christ.

 
And who has bewitched us is this clever exchange of the truth for the lie and drawn us away from our ...

The Antichrist Is Coming

“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now, many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.” (I Jo. 2:18) “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.” (I Jo. 2:20).

 
As sons and soldiers of the cross, we must continue the discussion we opened in our last letters. In the end days deceivers will come. It is ...

But What Will You Do In The End?

As good soldiers we must know what we believe in and how to “contend earnestly for the faith, (Jude 3). Let us begin with the basics. “”In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1).

 
“In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and the WORD was God.” ( Jo. 1:1). God spoke the worlds into existence through the WORD. Jesus Christ is the WORD of God incarnate. He is the “appointed heir ...

Believing The Lie

The formula for freedom is contained in the words of Jesus. “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (Jo. 8:31-32). If truth equals freedom then the antithesis is also true, lies equal bondage. Jesus testified of Himself and His testimony was confirmed by His Father. He is the Truth. It is logical to conclude, then, if our lives are filled with bondage, we ...

The Truth

Taking up our discussion from last time, consider this; if the light that is in you be darkness and that darkness is masked by an angel of light, making the truth light difficult to discern, who will not be fooled by the false? Jesus cautioned us that false christs and false prophets would arise in the last days and “show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” (Matt. 24:24).

 

We would never have guessed even ...

The Good Fight

The Good Fight is a part of the Soldiers Handbook for War, written to inspire and encourage the army of God to contend earnestly for the faith that was delivered to us by the Holy Spirit, (Jude). I encourage you to use them as a personal devotional for insight and instruction and send them to your friends and fellow soldiers. We must use every opportunity and “appliance for war”, as William Booth would say, recognizing the urgency of ...
