Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment (when it is not charmed); and a babbler is no better (Ecclesiastes 10:11 ) A babbler will speak without thinking; they don’t take in consideration what they speak may cause an offense to someone else. Christians should be mindful of someone else feelings. We should treat others the way we would like to be treated even if they are living a life of sin, we should draw them with loving kindness. Loving them doesn’t mean we’re condoning their life style,but we’re loving them as our Heavenly Father love them. A babbler and gossiper shouldn’t be in the body of Christ. People don’t like to confide to babblers or gossipers; people are in need of having someone to talk to without having to worry about their conversation with you being told to everyone except to God. God holds us responsible for what people confide to us; we are to counsel them by the Word of God and prayer. We assist people in their bondage when they don’t have anyone they can talk to in confidence.Read More
Thou therefore endure hardness (hardship), as good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangle himself with the affairs of this life: that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier (2nd Timothy 2:3-4). God chose you, and it’s your choice if you will accept His invitation. Just as in the natural military; God is looking for a soldier with qualities that will meet His standards. Everyone cannot join the military if they don’t have the qualifications. When a solider joins the military he or she is aware they will be in battle with the enemy, and the military prepares them for the battle. Spiritually, spiritual soldiers will be prepared for battle. A baby Christian will not come in contact with the enemy until he or she has been properly prepared to go in to battle. The military is looking for soldiers who will be dependable, bearing, courage, decisive, endurance, enthusiasm, integrity, judgement, justice, tact, unselfishness, loyalty and knowledge. Spiritually, the same qualities must be in a spiritual solider. A spiritual soldier must be prepared at all times, not knowing when the enemy may attack.
A spiritual soldier like a natural soldier must be dependable. God is looking for soldiers He can depend on, one that He can use anytime and anywhere, and any place. An individual who will present their body as a living sacrifice. As a natural soldier is restricted from going into certain places, doing certain things, so is the spiritual soldier. God is looking for a person who will pray without Him making them pray, one who will fast without trials and tribulations making them fast. A soldier’s conduct and character must be good at all times even when they maybe in a bad time.
God cannot use a soldier who has no courage, a soldier must be willing and fearless to fight against the enemy with one goal in mind to take out the adversary. A soldier cannot worry about what people think of them or what they may do to them. A soldier must stand up for the gospel even when it looks as though he or she will be persecuted and rejected because of their stand for God’s written Word.
A soldier must be decisive, having the ability to make decisions properly and to announce them in clear, forceful manner without being in their emotions, but the spirit of God. A soldier must have endurance, shouldn’t be fretting because of a trial or tribulation; knowing sooner or later God is coming to deliver them, but in the mean time they will continue in praying, fasting, reading and studying God’s Word, continually looking for an opportunity to minister to someone about the good news of Jesus Christ. A soldier doesn’t stop doing what is required of them because of trials and tribulations.
A good soldier has enthusiasm about their salvation, they don’t take it for granted and is willing to tell about the Grace of God to whoever will listen. They must have integrity at all times, never wanting to bring a reproach against their identity as a Christian; showing faithfulness in Church, but when they are alone they will do what is against the Word of God.
A soldier must make judgment which is discernment from the righteous and the ungodly, he or she must be able to discern what spirit they are confronting and not the individual. The Bible indicates we should know a person by the fruit they bear, and that’s whether they are bearing good or bad fruit. A soldier shouldn’t have a certain type of person they will witness to, everyone was created by God. A soldier should have tact, capable of confronting or ministering to others without creating an offense. A soldier should always have others in mind; who they can help or encourage. When a soldier keeps in mind he or she is on call 24 hours a day, they don’t have time for foolishness; they are keeping themselves prepared to be used by God at anytime.
A soldier must be loyal to their Heavenly Father no matter what the circumstances maybe, and they must have knowledge of the Word of God. Spiritual soldiers fight with the sword which is the Word of God. Spiritual soldier makes sure they have their eyes and ears open to the voice of God, they don’t allow anything to be placed before their eye or ear gate to go into their spirit. A spiritual soldier is aware that the angels of God are with them to fight, they are aware its the Spirit of God who lives within them, making them conquerors. Every Christian is called for duty, armor up and fight the good fight of faith and using Word of God.Read More

Teach me, O Lord, the way of thy status, and I shall keep it unto the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law, yea I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me to go in the path of thy commandments, for therein do I delight. Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity: and quicken thou me in thy way. Establish thy work unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear. Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good. Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness – Psalm 119:33-40 The promises of God, is that He will give us the desires of our heart, and if we really desire this prayer to be manifest in us, the prayer will be answered. Our desires should be focus on heavenly things and not the things of the world. This world will be coming to end as the the Lord return for His saints, the body of Christ must be a prepared people waiting on the Lord’s return. Those who have not accept Jesus as their Savior, salvation is free to all, all you have to do is confess your sins, repent and believe in your heart, Jesus is the Son of God and He died in order for you to live. God and His Son loves everyone, but they don’t love or condone the sin, the wages of sin is death both naturally and spiritually. Jesus came that we may have life and that more abundantly.Read More
