THE BATTLE BELONGS TO THE LORD

Uncategorized

A3A blessed good morning to all our readers and those working and labouring in the vineyard of the Lord. My brothers and sisters in the Lord you are aware that we are approaching the “Lenten season” and it is said that the devil is let loose just before trying to destroy the children of God. In my opinion it is not true, but I know that he desires to sift you as wheat and it is my prayer that your faith doesn’t fail you and those that are strong must comfort the weak hearted. So, let us get right into our message for this morning.

 If we have the attitude of “an eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth,” there will be no peace. The Bible tells us that we must “make every effort to live in peace with all men” (Hebrews 12:14). And only if we repay evil with good can peace be built up, for “when a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him” (Proverbs 16:17).  This is part and parcel of what it means to live a life of Christ, one that’s filled with His peace and His harmony, and such a life is a good testimony of the wonderful gospel we ought to live out everyday. To often people that try to live godly are ridiculed for living a life pleasing to the Lord. It is the work of the devil and sometimes all he can find is your past to make conversation. Many people who don’t know you gossip on the things they hear and God will deal with them in His own time.

 In order to obtain peace and happiness, one must reconcile with God. The misfortunes in a person’s life originate from his enmity towards God. Sin, which comes from Satan, brings forth enmity against God. Therefore, to have peace with God, one must first be free from sin. “Submit to God and be at peace with Him; in this way prosperity will come to you” (Job 22:21). There are many characters in the Bible that we can refer to for good character. To help us walk right and live a better and decent life. Job is such a character we can follow, and there is no better time to look into his life like now. When we turn away from God’s words and lose the sensitivity of fear towards Him in our hearts, we gradually draw ourselves closer to the world and the sins that entangle us. We can be a regular church-goer or even an important worker for the Lord, but that doesn’t mean we feel at peace with God. Often times, this is because we have yet to live out His commands and to submit to His will.

 We have to ask ourselves, “Why do we even want to fight?” It will do us no good to educate ourselves on the battle if we see no reason for the fight. War is very controversial today in the physical realm. Those attitudes, beliefs and convictions will transfer over to the spiritual realm. However, in the spiritual realm, there is a battle going on regardless of our opinion. We are either victors or victims. Jesus has come and conquered. The war is already won in the heavens. Jesus told us in Matthew 28:18 that, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Those who have been reading these morning messages will remember the message on the great commission..{click on link}………..(THE GREAT COMMISSION)

The Battle belongs to the Lord…but You are the Soldier! I do not want you to go out thee fighting people to disgrace yourself. Those that seek to destroy you in the bars and the street corners or even in the church need a new life. They need to experience the change that came about in your life and the example you lead in your community. They have nothing else to do and so their only life line is to castigate those who are trying to live a godly life. The Bible reminds us that all that live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecutions and most times comes from those closest to you. Do not fight back the battle is the Lord’s. If you fight back with words or action it sends the message that you are distracted. Pray for them, make special times to lift them up before the Lord. I have a testimony hallelujah. Pray and look in your life and see the blessings coming. Remember this is your year of abundance. The battle is the Lord’s.
