Stand,
and
Take Your Stand!

“Your enemy the devil prowls around
Like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
RESIST HIM STANDING FIRM IN THE FAITH
Because you know that the family of believers
Throughout the world is undergoing
The same kind of sufferings.”

1 Peter 5:8-9

StandingInAdversity Christians are under attack today more than any time in history. Why? Because in today’s technological networked world, 'keyboard warriors,' social media, video diatribes and dubious news sources can conveniently mock, ridicule and discredit the Bible and Christians as out of step with the times. While it might be convenient to blame this opposition, the real enemy is not mortal, but spiritual.

The Bible tells us in Ephesians 6:12 that “We wrestle (are fighting) not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” These powers are Satan and his evil co-workers that work in tandem with people on the earth to accomplish their destructive goals.

So how do we as Christians counter this? The Bible says there are two things we must do.

First RESIST the Devil (James 4:7) and secondly STAND wearing the WHOLE armor of God. (Ephesians 6:13) This requires you to put on EVERY piece of armor and be fully dressed so that you can stand without yielding against Satan and his demonic forces.

Friend, the reality is that Christ already WON the battle against these enemies at the Cross of Calvary. So as 2 Chronicles 20:15 so aptly says, “Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; For The Battle Is Not Yours, BUT GOD’s.”

Christian, now is the time to rise up and Take Your Stand.

STAND! And Make His VICTORY Your Focus!
