Now more than ever, I feel an urgency to speak about the tribulation gripping the world. As scene after scene plays out like a horror film that doesn’t end. Even America is embroiled in awaiting chaos, as events unfold in the heartland of our country that threatens a civil type war. We watched again this morning as murder from a horror film played out in Jerusalem as people praying in a synagogue were brutally attacked with axes, knives and guns. Scenes too gruesome to display on public television. Beheadings, crucifixions, amputations, stonings, all manner of public execution and mass graves, images too graphic for us to fully take in. Suffering that is unimaginable.
As I listened tonight to a well known pastor and theologian describe the battle that is ensuing for our very souls by satan and his legion of demons, as he explained how important it was to guard our minds from deceiving spirits, as well as our hearts. Our hearts so that we may turn to faith and love instead of hatred and calls for murder and revenge. And again, I felt the urgent need to warn the Body of Christ that the time is now. The time to arm ourselves with the Armor of God. As the Pastor pointed out, Paul used the description of Roman armor because it was heavy and meant to guard the head, heart and vital organs.
The Christian’s Vital Organs: Our minds where Christ has placed the truth—the sword with which to fight the deception. And our hearts as we turn to faith and love. Not hate, fear or vengeance.
Are you ready? Is your mind, body, heart protected? Soon it will be too late. Many will fall away as the Bible predicts. Are you ready?
Read Ephesians 6:10-18
