“John 10:10 says,the only reason a thief comes ,is to steal, kill, and destroy. And
2Corinthians 2:11 warns us, be alert,Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
The thief is satan the devil himself. Where there is stealing, killing and destruction the devil is at work. In every evil act that takes place,the devil is at work. He influences and operates through mankind since the Garden of Eden with Eve and Adam.
The unfortunate thing is that many do not see it that way. They see mankind as evil instead of the devil. This is exactly what the devil wants. This is deception. Be not deceived. Open Your eyes; the devil is your enemy and not mankind,and Jesus already defeated him.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time”.(Revelation 12:11-12 KJV).
“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord”. (1 Corinthians 15:57-58 KJV).
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”,(Romans 8:35-39 KJV).
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee”.(Isaiah 43:2 KJV)
Therefore; Keep it going God-Strong
As Luke 9:62 says,
And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and LOOKING BACK, is fit for the kingdom of God.
But Philippians 3:13-14 puts it this way,
13 …but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
+ Let nothing stop you from doing what you know God wants you to do.
+Always do the WILL of God from your heart in LOVE and FAITH no matter how you feel.
+Your test may be great, but your FAITH is GREATER. You may not feel strong, but the Lord is the Strength of your life.
+You are MORE THAN CONQUEROR through Christ Jesus, and you are BLESSED above measure.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
