Be Not Afraid

My friends,  Jesus said we need to be able to read the signs of the times  and today they do appear to be pointing to the 'last days'! These are exciting times, but it’s also the reason the world seems to be imploding. ISIS is raging with the intent to conquer the world for Islam; economies around the world are challenged, immorality is running rampant, Christians are being persecuted and/or killed in their home countries, and that includes here; nations are plotting against Israel to annihilate them, our enemies are gaining power and we are giving it to them on a platter like John the Baptist’s head.

So what do we do? Collapse and give up? No. We remember that our all powerful God is still in control! We look to God and His Word for our answers.

2 Chronicles 15:2-7
. . .there was a war brewing and so Asa received a word and it said:
“Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin:
the Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him [inquiring for and of Him, craving Him as your soul’s first necessity], He will be found by you; but if you [become indifferent and] forsake Him, He will forsake you.

3 Now for a long time Israel was without the true God…” That’s how bad it had gotten. “…without a teaching priest, and without law.
4 But when they in their trouble turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, and
[in desperation earnestly] sought Him, He was found by them. …

7 Be strong, therefore, and let not your hands be weak and slack, for your work shall be rewarded. And when Asa heard these words, the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage and put away the abominable idols from all the land of Judah and Benjamin and from the cities which he had taken in the hill country of Ephraim; and he repaired the altar [of burnt offering] of the Lord which was in front of the porch or vestibule [of the house] of the Lord.”


Asa returned his kingdom to righteousness and won the battles! It’s time for us to do the same. I found these lines which speak truth from GPAN:

Yes! It’s time to get fed up with the enemy
It’s time to rise up and take your stand in Jesus’ name
Come against those things in the power and authority of the name of Jesus
You call those things to be the way they’re supposed to be
For we stand upon the Rock and we will not be shaken in Jesus’ name!
We declare this nation is founded on the Rock of Jesus Christ and it will not be shaken!





We exchange attitudes of defeat to positive statements of the victory Jesus won for us on the cross! We live righteously and draw nearer to God


Again GPAN: But the thing that needs to happen in the Church is that we need to get comfortable with Him and what He does and the way He does things. And not the way we do things and not the way we want to do things. And
—we need to be more uncomfortable when we do not have a sense of the presence and the move of the Holy Ghost.

Do you understand? It is critical for us to intentionally draw nearer to God, to daily spend quiet minutes/hours with Him. We must consume His Word and digest it in our own spirits and our hearts. Then we can be led by Him to fulfill the purpose for which we were created in these end days.

My friends, we are not fearful, but trust God with all our hearts!
