The Sword of the Spirit

Today’s article continues an eight week series on the armor of God. A very important part of being prepared spiritually for the “End Times” is being dressed in and utilizing the whole armor of God for Satan will be extremely powerful and even more deceptive because he knows that his time is short. The next piece of armor to be put on by the Christian soldier is the sword of the Spirit. This is the weapon that our Lord and Savior used against the devil in His wilderness temptations. Notice that the devil was the one who first quoted Old Testament scripture, which was then countered by Christ with another scripture. When Jesus Christ quoted scripture He shed light on the devil’s misinterpretation of God’s Word by putting it into its proper context. As we fast approach the end of days, many are coming out from the church, no longer resting under its authority and guidance for scriptural interpretation, which leaves many to interpret scripture as they feel led. The problem is who’s doing the leading, is it the Holy Spirit of God who leads us into all truth or is it the devil disguising himself as an angel of light? Continue reading The Sword of the Spirit

God is Love – A Polemic against Atheists

If God is love then why did He tell the children of Israel, “Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man” (Numbers 31:17). This verse along with many other verses out of the Old and New Testament atheist use to supplant the love of God for their own misguided interpretation. Furthermore, they have concluded that all religions are evil being the cause of numerous wars and atrocities inflicted upon their fellow man. Then atheists typically conclude their argument by stating if God is love then why does He allow all the evil in the world. As we near the end of time atheists have become arrogantly emboldened while most believers remain silent. I often wonder if this silence is caused by fear or the believer’s lack of biblical knowledge. Let’s remember dear children that He who is in us is stronger than he who is in the world. (See I John 4:4) It’s past time to take our stand against the foolishness of this world by wielding the sword of the Spirit with all truth from His anointed Word.

Reoccurring Dreams

It’s said that we all dream, perhaps every night. I like most have had crazy dreams that make little sense, chase dreams that leave you exhausted and fragmented dreams you can barely remember or understand. But then occasionally one immediately understands their dream and its intended meaning. I had such a dream years ago on the eve of a preaching event that taught me an invaluable lesson concerning God’s irrevocable call and man’s futile attempt in forcing people into His kingdom. On the other hand, what concerns us today are the reoccurring dreams that I have experienced, one since childhood. These dreams seem profoundly important if one could truly understand or interpret their prophetic message. I am convinced that God can and does communicate occasionally through dreams. This type of communication may not be as prevalent today as it was during Old Testament times but no less important to a modern world that’s gone mad. It’s on this later stage that I will share my dream with the hope that God’s children will awaken from their slumber and re-enter the harvest field for the days are short.
