Spiritual Battles more and more prevalent every day.
These last two years, I have gone through a lot. My faith has been tested over and over. During this time, my relationship with Jesus Christ, has never been closer. I seek His Word every day and search for understanding. I will always continue this walk with Jesus. Many, many, years ago as a “young babe in Christ”, I failed the first major test of my faith. I slipped away. I reDedicated my life to Jesus, about 15 years ago, but these last two, it’s like I have been making up for the lost time. I am now just realizing this, but it is not making up for the lost time, It is a True and Faithful Walk with Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.
I pray everyone will stop “running to and fro” and realize the times we are living in and how rapidly our country is becoming more and more like the countries, we have fought against. Where has our morals gone? Our country has totally thrown out God’s Commandments. Our leaders are corrupt and taking away our freedoms God has given us and turning into a dictatorship. God commands us to give willingly and freely. After taking us down the path of breaking other commandments, our leaders and now the Pope, are saying “Spread the Wealth Around”. Could this be the breaking the Tenth Commandment (KJV)? Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
I urge everyone to Keep God’s Commandments and seek the Will of God, so that you will have the “Seal of God“. Jesus said in John 14:15-21 (KJV) If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
I’m in the middle of a move from one state to another, I have been unemployed for two years, I’m letting go of my worldly possessions, my white blood cell count has been high, the doctors don’t know why, and I have been experiencing depression. A couple of days before Thanksgiving, I received word of the death of a very close friend, Greg. I have been in deep thought over this. I have the feeling, when Christ returns, I can tell Greg I’m sorry for not returning his calls and Greg will say, I knew something was wrong and wanted to know if I could help.
I thank my Heavenly Father for my family and friends, especially those that know me well enough, to know when something is wrong. I thank Jesus for carrying me. I have not and will not let go of Him and in return, Jesus will not let go of me. It is not about our “wants”, God knows our “needs” and He will provide our needs through prayer, fasting, and seeking “His Will”. I love the Lord with “All my Heart, All my Soul, and All my Mind”.
If I’m not able to recover all of my post, I will just start again, Jesus will win the Spiritual Battle.
