Take a Stand
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 1Cor. 11:14
Sadly it has been my observation and belief that most professing believers do not believe in the Spiritual World that is at work on a daily basis around us simply due to their acceptance and participation in events such as Halloween. I believe so much of this is due to the desensitization caused by our media and the entertainment of movies, video games and literature that has made the works of evil simply nothing more than scary stories and make-believe but anyone who has ever truly read the Bible knows that the enemy and his workers are real and out to steal, kill and destroy (John10:10). However, even though I have pointed to the world, the greatest blame lies at the doorstep of today’s modern day church, for as is the saying, “as the church goes so goes the world“. The modern day church, the seeker sensitive Church especially, does whatever it must do to fill it pews, thus giving into the desires and wishes of its members instead of to the desires and wishes of our Lord and Savior.
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. Gal1:10
Just imagine a day when the Body of Christ would not do as the world and disguise itself with costumes, ceremony , and tradition and instead celebrate the spark that Martin Luther began by shedding the Light Of Truth and thus a new beginning for the Church in turning back to justification by faith.
2 Chronicles 33:6 And he (King Manasseh) caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom (human sacrifice): also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him to anger.
How many today are to embarrassed, ashamed, weak and cowardly to take a Stand For Truth, and instead offer up our children to darkness and evil, all in the name of fun and innocence? God was long-suffering with King Manasseh and even though he was one of the most wicked kings he did ultimately repent and turn back to God. I believe it is time for many, especially the carnal church of today to do the same, before it is to late and apostasy has consumed and destroyed our families. It is time to take a Stand, “for what fellowship has Light with darkness.”
Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand with me today in prayer as we bind the enemy and lose the Spirit of Truth over our churches, congregations, families, friends, and communities. We are living in the last of the last days and it is time for us to take a that stand against the wiles of the enemy and pray for the freedom, moving, and operation of the Holy Spirit to draw those and us all to the only Truth that God is working in, Christ and His finished work.
