God is shaking our world. He is revealing the hidden things to His people and we cannot be okay with what He is revealing. Things like abortion, pornography, sex-trafficking, sexual immorality, the legalization of illicit drugs, and blatant contempt for anything remotely associated with Christianity are no longer being done in the shadows.
Things that until now have been kept silent and hidden are now being proclaimed loud and proud. We, the children of God, cannot be okay with what is going on. God’s people can no longer be silent and complicit in letting it all just keep continuing; we must allow our rage and anger to finally come forth and stand.
Stand against the schemes of the evil one by standing for God’s righteousness and His glory. It is time to stand against abortion at any time, against pornography and sex-trafficking, against the redefinition of marriage. It is time to stand against legalization of illicit drugs. Just stand.
Stand up men of God… stand up women of God… stand up and take your rightful place as Kingdom Warriors. We’ve sat back and allowed Christianity to be separated from the world; just as we’ve separated Sunday from Monday, the sacred and secular. This must end.
We must be willing to say it loudly that we will not back down, or be afraid. Proclaim that we will not shirk our responsibility to God’s Kingdom. Nor will we abdicate our roles as men and women, fathers and mothers. Our children do not belong to the world, we will not hand them over to be raised. No, it does not take a village; it takes a family – a father and a mother.
The time has come to stop pretending we are outraged by these happenings in our sharing, posting, tagging, pinning, tweeting, and snapping. Now is time to put verbs into our sentences. It is time to rise up and say no more. God’s children must venture outside the walls of our churches and take up the mantle of righteousness. Do not merely speak about putting on the Armor of God as we read in Ephesians 6. Do it.
The Armor of God
Ready yourself as a Kingdom Warrior by putting on the belt of truth and the breastplate of righteousness and prepare your feet with readiness to take up the shield of faith so that you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Put on the helmet of salvation and pick up the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, the TRUTH.
satan, you will take your hands off my family, my children, my neighborhood, my church, my employment, my state, my country and it’s leaders… your time is up.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” (Ephesians 6:10-11)
