Standing up for Righteousness!
“For truth has stumbled in the street, and uprightness cannot enter. Yes truth is lacking: and he who turns aside from evil makes himself a prey.”
“Those who know the truth have faltered in upholding it because to uphold it is to be persecuted.”
These days Truth has few who stand up to defend it. Those who fight for evil have many advocates, but those who uphold Truth, even in a conversation with a coworker, is a rare thing. Who fights for Truth? God is looking for people who are unafraid of the consequences for defending it. Our nation wants to take God out of everything and who among us is willing to be mocked and scorned to defend against this? We, the body of Christ, seem to have lost our voices while those who promote the very abominable acts that God has promised to deal judgment on, get louder and louder. They are unafraid of the consequences of bringing our nation to complete annihilation!
This is our call to put on the Armor of God and stand in the midst of the people to defend righteousness and truth! To all who serve the Lord He says, “Hear O Israel! You are crossing over the Jordan today to go in and dispossess nations greater and mightier than you, great cities fortified to heaven, a people great and tall, the sons of the Anakim, whom you have heard it said, “Who can stand before the sons of Anak?” Know therefore today that it is the Lord your God who is crossing over before you as a consuming fire. He will destroy them and He will subdue them before you so that you may drive them out and destroy them quickly, just as the Lord your God has spoken to you. -Deut. 9:1-3
The spiritual darkness of our nation has fortified itself to the heavens and has vowed to destroy all Godliness in the land and God is calling upon us, saying that if we will rise up He will go forth before us and bring down the wickedness. He will go forth as a consuming fire! We are all afraid of the opinions of unrighteous men but our enemy is terrified that we will throw off his yoke and stand for Jesus Christ! Let us humble ourselves before the Lord and remove all unrighteousness from our homes and purify ourselves for a day of battle! The filth of evil men and perverse minds is in our homes – in our books, in our magazines, in our music, in our TV, in our movies, and on our computers. Let us seek the Lord that He might remove every impure thing in our homes. If we remove all that is impure He will fill us with renewed courage and cause us to rise up and perform acts of valor in His name and the fears that have held our mouths closed from speaking boldly will fall off and the enemy will be routed!
Let this be our request, that all impurity might be removed from our homes that we might purify our camp to be ready for the day of battle, that the Lord Himself might fight for us and bring about revival for our country!
May God uphold us and do this great work on our behalf! God bless!
