I will not spend much time showing you that you’re fighting the wrong battle, but I will spend much more time showing you how to fight the real battle being waged for your souls. There is a spiritual battle raging in the world today that’s causing great harm. This massive hysteria is driving people to the threshold of insanity where their old feelings of stress and anxiety look unbelievably mild in comparison. Many people I have talked to have a most difficult time managing this new normal as they struggle to keep up with their face mask, remembering to sanitize everything they bring home, to washing their hands again and again. Many complain about not being able to attend church, visit close friends, or even see members of one’s own family. All of this, however, barely scratches the surface of what people are going through, the unspoken pain they are experiencing, as they face another plague infecting the entire world. For some, what’s most intolerable is their inability to stay focused, to maintain their schedules, and to accomplish what they desire. Moreover, they feel like a reed blowing in the wind, as they try to grasp what’s really going on in the world. This causes them to follow one conspiracy theory after another. Yet, none of them can help them to find solace with what’s happening in their souls. What’s going on?
Dear children, you are in the midst of a Great War being waged between the children of light and the children of darkness. You are in a great spiritual war for the souls of all humanity. The powers of darkness have created this mass hysteria causing God’s children to fight the wrong battle. For many months now most believers have been fighting the wrong battle. The battle is not political, it’s not racial, it’s not left against right, or red against blue, it’s not even religious. It’s not about which drug is the best effective cure against the latest virus, it’s not about uncovering some deep state, and it’s not about wearing a mask or not wearing one. It is not about all the conspiracy theories flooding the internet and social media. No, the real battle is against the mass hysteria created by the powers of darkness to keep us bewildered and confused. This is the great deception that will usher in the man of lawlessness. It has always been a ploy in warfare to misdirect the opposing forces. That’s exactly what we see happening with this mass hysteria. Unfortunately, it’s working all too well. The only thing that will make a difference, that will keep your soul from being destroyed by the enemy is to join in the fight, to learn how to wage war with the real enemy of your soul, before it’s too late.
Allow me to digress just for a moment and tell you why the enemy is winning. He is winning because he is keeping you occupied. Let that sink in for a moment. The old devil wants to keep you so busy with the nonessentials, going one way and then another, that you don’t realize that you are being destroyed by the enemy. He is taking you captive to do his will. Dear children, take this warning seriously. If you don’t, one day soon, you will wake up to complete poverty of spirit, soul, and everything else that had any meaning to you. It will all be lost. The war is being waged now. You can either be a casualty of war or you can be a soldier for Christ. The choice is yours. If you chose to be a soldier, as a child of the light, then let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work. The first thing we must do is refocus our efforts. This will be the biggest stumbling block for most, so we will begin with that first. Refocus your efforts! Stop doing what you have been doing. Stop your research. The enemy is causing all this hysteria robbing you of your time and extinguishing your light. Stop chasing after every conspiracy theory or false prophecy. This is the first step and the most difficult.
Once you have successfully stopped chasing the wind then it’s time to redeem all the time. Yes, you knew I would speak about time management. This is extremely important because you will need all that extra time, and even more. I could tell you to put on the full armor of God, as outlined in my book, Stand Firm, or I could tell you many more things about spiritual warfare, which would all be great, but today I just want you to focus on two simple, yet profound truths. These truths will not only make you a soldier in the battle, but it will also give you hope in overcoming the wiles of the devil and standing victoriously with the faithful remnant at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keeps the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:17). Of course, the dragon is also known as Satan or the devil who wages a very destructive and demoralizing war with not only fallen humanity but the children of light or the faithful remnant. We will take two great lessons from this passage of Scripture. The remnant is obedient to all of God’s commandments and secondly, they hold on tenaciously to the testimony of Jesus Christ.
It’s these two marks (or hallmarks if you prefer) that will get you off the sidelines and put you in battle as His soldier against the powers of darkness. It’s these two attributes that will allow you to participate in the glorious victory at Christ’s Second Coming. So, please, let’s not take them lightly but rather eagerly put them into your life. Let’s begin with obedience to all of God’s commandments. Although we have been gloriously saved by God’s grace, we know that we are still required to obey all of His beautiful commandments because He has written them on our hearts through the Holy Spirit. This is a true mark of the faithful remnant. We have been given these blessed commandments to show us how to be true lights in a very dark world. The more we learn and obey, the brighter our light becomes. The remnant of God will have a tremendous desire not only to study every commandment but to apply them to their lives. Our obedience to all of His commandments will powerfully change us from the inside out and will magnificently impact the world for Christ.
Come join me in this great spiritual battle – in obedience, we don’t ever deny the Father or the Son but openly acknowledge them at all times and in every place with great joy in our hearts (See I John 2:23). In obedience, we don’t grieve the Holy Spirit by ignoring His leading to speak unafraid and powerfully to the fallen world (See Ephesians 4:30). In obedience, we will share our sincere love with all people by being kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving (See Ephesians 4:31-32). In obedience, we will build others up with appropriate and gracious words of encouragement (See I Thessalonians 5:11, and Ephesians 4:29). In obedience, we will practice non-retaliation, soundly defeating the enemy as we go (See Matthew 5:38-48). In obedience, we will rejoice and be glad at all times (See Philippians 4:4). What joy it is to see the powerful impact we have upon the world through obedience to all of God’s commandments. As you can see this takes time and effort as you begin to realize the treasure trove of His beautiful commands and the time it takes to actively apply them to your life. When we are obedient, we don’t have time to chase after every conspiracy theory released by the powers of darkness to keep us busy and confused.
But that’s not all. The other true mark of the faithful remnant is our testimony of Jesus Christ. We hear a lot of testimony these days, but we don’t hear the testimony of Jesus Christ. The testimony of Jesus Christ has not changed in over two thousand years. His testimony will proclaim loudly, that through faith we are delivered from the bondage of this world and translated to a life of blessed happiness beyond measure. Hallelujah! (See Colossians 1:13) We will proclaim, that Christ changes us from the inside out through the power of the Holy Spirit. We proclaim that. He is preparing us for eternity. Every moment of every day is needed for this transformation in Christ. As we are being changed, we will be witnesses of the great joy being formed up in us. We find that we are unable to contain this great joy as we miraculously become lights in a dark world. Once His truth is firmly planted in us then we become soldiers of the Cross as the enemy attacks us at every turn denying the truth being planted in our souls. As the war rages against our souls, the powers of darkness will deny the truth that God can really forgive our past, striking it from our memories, and making us into new creations. We must allow people to see this powerful change taking place in our lives. Praise God!
Now, come with me. Let’s testify for Christ – the testimony of Jesus Christ proclaims that the world should not be surprised by what’s happening. All of these plagues have been foretold as the direct consequence of their turning away from God and practicing their wickedness (See Revelation 9:20-21). Thanks to Hollywood, higher education, and the News Media we have plummeted into the depths of immorality. The testimony of Jesus Christ proclaims loudly that mankind’s many difficulties in life arise from them denying God’s ability to give them everything they need for life and godliness (See II Peter 1:2-3). Thanks to the lies of psychology the whole world has gone into bondage. The testimony of Jesus Christ proclaims that through faith in Jesus Christ He makes us into new creations where old things truly pass away (See II Corinthians 5:17). The testimony of Jesus Christ proclaims to the world that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and unless they repent, then eternal damnation awaits them in the fiery pits of hell (See Romans 3:23, and Matthew 13:42). We should never be afraid to proclaim the testimony of Jesus Christ for therein lies the greatest blessings for His beloved children.
In conclusion, this is the fight that we have been called to, but as the title says, many are fighting the wrong battle. As they try to plummet the depths of evil and then share what they have discovered, then they are fighting the wrong battle. The more they do this, the deeper they will sink into darkness extinguishing whatever light they had. When they do this then they will no longer be effective in the Kingdom of God. Don’t think for a moment that you can just sit on the sidelines. If you do, then you will be destroyed. You think it’s bad now just wait. This will take faith; it will take time. I implore you to redeem the time and join the battle today against the powers of darkness that have engineered this mass hysteria. Stand Firm dear children though obedience and proclaiming the testimony of Jesus Christ. Amen
