I am hoping if you are a christian that you are already prepared and that you not just say, indeed I am prepared but that you continue daily to always keep in shape for running the race and prepared for spiritual warfare. You cannot be in shape 6 months ago and assume that without continued working out that you will still be ready for the race that is going to start tomorrow. Daily we are in war, and this I am speaking of is spiritual warfare.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;
and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
Love you all and God bless you and may God Almighty, who was and is and who is to come – have mercy upon each of us and not because we deserve it by our own actions but because of the grace given to us because of the blood of Jesus Christ who knew no sin and yet He gave His life and suffered for the sins of all the world. Romans tells us that the wages of sin is death. But, for those who believe AND accept the free gift that has already been paid for by Jesus Christ at Calvary, for them there is hope. We have redemption in Jesus Christ. God loves each of us and no one has done too much that they cannot be saved by Jesus Christ who was born and lived and died and rose again so that we might be saved. There will come a day when that open door is shut. Please don’t wait. Seek the Lord God while He is near.
Please look at the world around and read the Holy Bible. The judgements spoken of over and over in the scriptures tells us of God’s love for you and me and when nations begin to grow more evil because they have pushed God out He seems to try to get the attention of those who cannot see, so that they might see and so that they might turn from there evil ways and come to the arms of our Savior. The storm clouds are growing darker. You and I could be gone today with a heart attack, a car accident or something much worse. There is no time left.
Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ today and begin to ask Him to reveal Himself to you through the reading of His word. Grow close to Him. When we read the Holy Bible God will give those who truly seek Him wisdom and understanding.
