WE ARE AT WAR!
The servants of the almighty
God are at war with Satan today and have been since the
beginning of time. This war is real. The fight is for the souls
of men made in the image of God.
There can be no compromise with the
host of hell. The battle rages today and some would say the
battle cannot be won. They add that we lack the manpower, the
finances and the will to fight to the death. This may be true
for some as they linger in indecision, put their trust in human
wisdom and intellect and seek to be friends with a world who
hates the way of God.
It must be said that we cannot give up nor will we give in. Millions of our fellowmen want to hear the clear simple message of the kingdom of God while seemingly some in a great brotherhood have turned to popular programs of the moment, a play on numbers and the moving message of healing the body and not the soul.
The goal must be to use the zeal and ability of a wonderful brotherhood to make great plans by local churches. Then we must have the will with patience to stay the course in planting the seed of God's kingdom building great churches in every nation on earth.
The numbers were few in the first century but God went before them to take the saving message to a lost world. Today there is the same God and the same gospel and many are committed to fight the battle with the assurance victory will come now and in eternity.
authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go
therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age"
(Matthew 28: 18-20)
