Be Strong In the Lord

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand – Ephesians 6:10-13.

The Apostle Paul addressed the believer as “brethren”, indicating both genders, male and female to be aware that they are not fighting against flesh and blood but spirits known as principalities, rulers of darkness, wickedness in high places.  Sadly, to say, many Christians aren’t aware that they are in a spiritual war. These spirits have power, but God has empowered the true believer authority over them. Read More

Be Established In God’s Word

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you – John 15:7

What does it mean to abide in Him and His Words to abide in you? It means to stay, sit, settle or dwell. It’s to wait, cease from doing it your way and depend on His will to be done. It is to have faith in His Word that no matter what is going on in your life, His Word supersede the issue or problem. But one can’t have faith in His Word if they don’t know His Word.  Read More

Bishop

For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls – 1st Peter 2:25  Israel was a chosen people by God, a people He wanted to bestow His blessing upon. Abraham was the forefather of both the Jews and the Arabs, but prior to being chosen, he served and worshipped strange gods like his father and his family. When God chose him, he was instructed to leave his country, his father’s house and family, meaning his extended family. Staying too close with those who were practicing idolatry would have been tempting and most likely influenced Abraham to continue to live his old lifestyle.
