Scriptural Truth – It’s Our Time In History

 

A brief look back in history will reveal men and women, countries and leaders, who stood during their time of history to declare, protect and preserve their freedom. Some stood for what they believed even if viewed as politically incorrect. It was their time in history to shine and strive to move forward in what they believed. Many people can recall Adolf Hitler, Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden, men who were mean deplorable individuals with acts to demonstrate their character. They are known and remembered for what they did in their time in history. These men all had a common thread , a driving force to conquer the world. They didn’t just think or dream about doing it but their mindset was engaged and they carried out their plans to the best of their ability. I am not praising these men nor do I approve of their actions but they, like many in history, stood for what they believed in. Today is our time in history and we must have a mindset to work and conquer the world for the cause of Christ. Throughout the bible we see reference made to warfare and fighting for the preservation of a nation. In Ephesians 6 Paul instructs by inspiration of the Holy Spirit to put on the whole armor of God. His intentions are to rally the troops and make ready for battle. His instructions are not only to gird with protective gear but to also take up the sword(God’s Word/Bible) to slay the adversary. These instructions are not for a physical battle of flesh and blood but for a spiritual warfare. The instructions given to the church at Ephesus were not just specific for them and their time in history but also for us today in our time. Today is our time in history to take our stand and shine. It’s our time in history to stand against deplorable acts and to stand for the glory of the cross and the saving of souls. It’s our time in history to gird ourselves to stand against the immorality and worldliness which surrounds us. We must quit thinking and dreaming about what a wonderful world this could be and fight to make it happen. Truly our very souls are at stake because if we don’t fight now how can we expect to hear “Well done my  good and faithful servant?” Until next week this is the ScripturalTruth, Tommy O’Kelley Minister Subligna Rd.
