God May Give You The Victory, But You May Still Have To Go Through The Battle

This is an excellent description of how wrong it can be to not live up to our obligations and responsibilities for the Lord! I want to add my thoughts here that I had written earlier today for another reblog; which hits the nail right on the head of what this article says as I see it.

All Christians that say they are against these things; such as abortion, same sex marriage, transsexuality and many other radical departures from human behaviors or practices that were tried and tested through the millennia and even more importantly forbidden in the Holy Scriptures; but want to remain placid and leave it all up to the Almighty, are the true “Lukewarm” wishy-washy that God tells us in Holy Scriptures, is what he will spit out! Many of them would rather play games and sit around letting the world go to hell in a hand basket than commit and be ready to fight for Jesus Christ as the martyrs and saints did or still do!

They don’t want to do the work required to truly carry their own cross here, but, like the idea of letting others do all the heavy lifting, and that is why this world is in the worst state it has ever been; with a modern generation over many decades now, that have been more interested in self-aggrandizement, materialism and pleasure seeking; than anything else. So materialistic and vain; not seeing the forest for the trees, or even caring as they do their “own thing” and “get all they can while they can!” Don’t we see this in our leaders and those with the most power and influence; in spades? They serve the beast this materialistic corrupted system and Satan without a doubt; and then the citizenry are falling into alignment with that same way of thinking sucking up whatever is dished out to them just as we have seen with the false pandemic! No ancient time or period even comes close in comparison to the evil which is exponentially increasing daily! Many prefer to gloss things over with delusional indifference or even self-righteousness and think they have done right; when they are so wrong!

Revelation 3:16 “15 I know your deeds; you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other! 16So because you are lukewarm— neither hot nor cold— I am about to vomit you out of My mouth! 17You say, ‘I am rich; I have grown wealthy and need nothing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked.…”

2 Timothy 4:3 “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions”

I’ve witnessed it time and again how so many on this internet sitting and just coasting along talking all day about nothing that really proves their willingness to fight for the good and what is right; truly righteous individuals are extremely hard to find on this social media! They often either play games seeking some kind of attention or distraction and want adulation as in followers; sometimes they are forming their little clubs where they converse about things; getting them nowhere and more importantly doing “nothing” about the horrors that riddle our societies.

1 John 3:8-10 “Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.”

Not taking a stand in defense of the innocent and against all the calamities of our corrupted system all around us, Ways of the World, is not righteous or loving one’s brothers and sisters! It’s become devil may care!

The basic truth is very concise and clear and there is no excuse to not see it and live it! The prophecies tell us in the Book of Truth what will come and how it will unfold; so to say we are not aware and so therefore must leave it all up to the Lord, sort of letting the chips fall where they may, because we have no say in it; is a LIE! Discerning power is available through the Holy Ghost the Comforter, who will reveal all things needed to those who truly are righteous and worthy in the eyes of our Savior! These fools who say I just mind my business and do my quiet act in my own little corner or way; are not carrying any cross, they are phony and cowards hiding behind fools.

“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” 1 Peter 1:14-16

Many people are being lulled into this captive mode of thinking, how if we just go along to get along it will all work out fine and dandy! Not going to happen, this world is falling away quickly and will End. So, “when the going gets tough the tough get going” not sitting like old fools in a sewing circle and hoping for the best! It actually takes work, pain and suffering to get the job done, as well as fight when it is required! If people back during the “Great Generation” mostly thought as many people do today, the tyrants and murderers would have taken over the world many years ago! And, now they have the best chance in all of time to do so, as we can rest assured this is Communist China’s absolute goal; with people like Biden and Canada’s Trudeau appeasing the evil Dragon; capitulating, to allow the slow takeover of free nations, while many depots within our nations have been bought off and sold their souls not only to the beast system; but to Satan! The CCP rules with an iron inhuman fist and are true atheists not caring one iota about “God or His children” only “lust for power and complete control” is what they care about!

I believe that sister Lisa explains quite well in the following!
This from “What is “Righteous Anger”?”
“How can I know whether I’m feeling that or just being a hothead?”
Lisa Harper (christianitytoday)

“I grew up believing anger was a “bad” emotion. So I’ve needed several years of Christian counseling even to admit I get angry, much less to learn I can express those feelings righteously! Thankfully, God’s Word sets clear parameters for getting peeved.

What does God say about this? The bad news for hotheads is that Scripture contains many more verses warning believers against blowing their cool than verses advocating such behavior. The writer of Proverbs connects anger with foolishness: “Fools quickly show that they are upset, but the wise ignore insults” (Proverbs 12:16, NCV). And the apostle Paul recommends letting our heavenly Father fight our battles: “My friends, do not try to punish others when they wrong you, but wait for God to punish them with his anger. It is written: ‘I will punish those who do wrong; I will repay them,’ says the Lord” (Romans 12:19, NCV).

Sometimes, however, God allows his people to fuss and remain faithful. Such is the case when King David furrows his brow and huffs:
“God, I wish you would kill the wicked!
Get away from me, you murderers!
They say evil things about you.
Your enemies use your name thoughtlessly.
Lord, I hate those who hate you;
I hate those who rise up against you.
I feel only hate for them;
they are my enemies” (Psalm 139:19–22, NCV).

Or when Nehemiah gets upset after learning about the wealthy Israelites’ exploitation of the poor: “Then I was very angry when I had heard … these words” (Nehemiah 5:6, NASB).

What’s noteworthy in these situations is that David called down curses on sworn enemies of God, and Nehemiah directed his irritation at the “haves” repressing the “have-nots.” Both men were angry because of ungodly people or activities.

And Jesus expressed anger—at the Pharisees who exhibited such hard hearts, and at the crass commercialism that sullied the temple (; )—to convey extreme displeasure over sin. Those reasons are the key to righteous anger.

How does this affect me? As Christ-followers, we’re totally appropriate getting upset over sin, too. Evils such as abuse, racism, pornography, and child sex trafficking should incense us.

But no matter how reprehensible the people or activities we’re condemning, we still aren’t justified to sin in our responses: “When you are angry, do not sin, and be sure to stop being angry before the end of the day” (Ephesians 4:26, NCV). Those of us with confrontational personalities might want to ask ourselves the question, Is my motive to be right or to be righteous? before ripping into the offending parties.

Such considerations also help us be pokey in getting peeved: “Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God” (James 1:19–20, ESV). Instead of replying immediately, simply counting to ten before reacting usually leads to much better results in a contentious situation.

Then after we take offense, we should take redemptive action. Christians must get involved with organizations working to free children from slavery and volunteer at shelters working to protect battered women. We must lead the charge against hatred and oppression and cruelty!

“Ultimately, if our outrage results in restoring people into loving, healing relationships with Jesus, it’s righteous anger.”

Lisa Harper has a Masters in Theology with an emphasis in biblical studies from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. She’s a sought-after speaker and has written several books, including Holding Out for a Hero: A New Spin on Hebrews (Tyndale) and What the Bible Is All About for Women: A Book of Devotions (Regal).

Waking people up from their distractions or even apathy is my goal in this world; as I can speak and write what I must; to do so! Because you and I know that what is going on in this world today is exponentially far worse than all those sins and wrongs that were committed by the Pharisees that Jesus actually reprimanded and condemned! What do we think would be His reaction if here now to deal directly with this horror! It’s certainly coming and will be the End!

God bless and keep in constant communion with our Lord Jesus Christ and heavenly Father through the Holy Ghost. Amen.

I often wonder, when watching sports, what happens when both teams pray to God for victory. Does the team with the most faith or those that are closest to God with the least amount of sin in their life have their prayer answered? It’s also interesting to hear when someone is interviewed after a sports win that they give credit to God, however do they recognize God as well when they lose?

God gives us strength and abilities; in fact the very breath we breathe is a gift from God. God is sovereign, omnipresent, and omnipotent, however He is not omnicausal, meaning there is a measure of free will at play. Christian denominations like to debate over the level…

  1. Good thoughts, Lawrence! The terror is upon us. Folks are brainwashed by the TV too. The vomitings from the mouth of satan, (in the form of words and carefully chosen pictures), which are presented to them by same TV are dividing all. Especially ‘racism’ … that can be whatever they say it is … to use their own lingo. For instance, white privelege. Never heard of such a thing and now half the world believes in it. I know you earned your ‘white privilege’ by hard work and suffering from within the ranks as you slaved. Oh I shouldn’t have said that word ‘slave’ … but then ‘they’ conveniently forget that the Civil War was won by white men and black men both together fighting for black men. An aside! “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” … my Dad had a plaque on the wall which had that saying on it. We grew up hearing it! A good lesson, indeed. What shall we do, though? Keep up the poison pen verbiage and pray the Rosary as Mary asked at Fatima.

  2. The greatest deception of all time is upon us; and all of the instruments that Satan needed mankind to possess are all available and the plan is falling right into place! Specific individuals are demonically possessed without any doubt in my mind as I have seen and witnessed behaviors and irregularities especially in our leaders that can only be accounted for by demonic control taking over these cohorts of hell. That is why I get very upset; because the world and its ways has been allowed to manifest so rampantly, but more importantly there are far too many people that won’t wake up; YET!

    I’m nobody, but, God is in total control I know that like you do too, and He will be making sure that the warning and shock that is needed at this time will manifest and be brought upon a radical wayward, so sinful human race, in order that anyone that wants to change before it’s too late, will be afforded that opportunity! Only because our God through Jesus Christ the Savior is the only one that can offer such perfect boundless mercy for those that do deserve it; only the truly evil will be lost! At least that is what I truly pray and hope for!

    As it says in 1 Peter 1:14-16 “But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

    I do Trust in the Lord, but I also see how the horror of sin and this fallen world or generation is so bad off, that this other Holy Scripture hits me hard!

    “In the same way continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2:12

    It is very sad and a frightening thought knowing there are so many running to the precipice and not caring or especially those not realizing what they are doing! We need God to shock this world like never before!

    “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” … my Dad had a plaque on the wall which had that saying on it. We grew up hearing it!”
    That is so wonderful that your Dad provided that lesson and people back then or longer ago knew what really mattered and appreciated the basics not looking to overpower or subdue others. But people in days gone by knew how to let things roll off and not have a crisis every darn time someone says something off cue; now not anything gets forgiveness, even a look is a federal case to some of these truly either spoiled rotten or mentally deranged human beings! But a criminal system and mass media pander and placate them giving or allowing too much of a voice to wreak havoc upon the masses; another tool of the Devil.

    I think the later generations have had it possibly way to easy or developed bad attitudes that ruin them and our collective societies! There are so many who are pointing fingers with hate and horrible animosities when they should look in their mirror and more importantly into their own hearts to see what they have become! Some are too far gone and that is why we have such a disaster; the numbers are on the side of the lost being the predominant driving force in the world! But there is Hope and that can turn it all around for the majority; if they wake up in time.

    All I can say is time will tell, I have to search my own conscience to assess what and how I must improve, and if I try my best then that is all I can do in this world; the same applies to all others! It’s time to get as serious as we ever have; in my humble opinion!

    This was a very enlightening comment! Thank you.
    God bless. Amen.
