With Their Boots On

   Twenty-one Coptic Christians were taken captive and put to death because they would not renounce Christ and serve Allah. Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints. Indeed, these are dangerous times we're living in. But we have hope, folks. We ain't in this thing to lose! Mordecai asked Esther,  "...and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" It's no mistake we're here at this time!
   Jesus posed this challenge: "Nevertheless, when the Son of Man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?" I want the answer to be YES! Guys, it ain't time to give up; it's time to remember who we are and Whose we are! Speaking by Isaiah the Prophet, God says:
Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art Mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I AM the LORD thy God... Isaiah 43:1-3
   Did He not tell Joshua, "There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life; as I was with Moses, so will I be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee" ? The same God Who was mighty in the ark of the covenant is just as mighty in the people of the New Covenant! When he said, "Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world", he didn't mean "a little greater" or "barely greater", he meant WAAAAAAAAAAAY greater!
   God's not going to evacuate us, nor will He let the devil trample us into the dirt! May I remind you that in every age and in each dispensation, God has raised up faithful servants to fulfill His purpose on the earth? Shall He not do so now also in these final days? Jesus encouraged the church of Smyrna, "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer..."
Isn't He going to seal His 144,000 servants, and raise up His Two Witnesses? And God has a purpose & plan for each of US!
   I hear so many always talking about everything the Devil's doing, or claims to be doing. I'm not going there, I ain't his P.R. man. My gig is to remind you God hasn't thrown in the towel, and neither should we! We have a Friend That sticks closer than a brother; and Jesus will be with us even to the end of this age.
   Obama & the DHS say Christians are a bigger threat than ISIS. YOU GOT THAT RIGHT, MISTER! We are a threat to Satan and his kingdom, and it's about time we started believing that & acting like it. If God be with us, who can be against us? There is no reason God can't use any of us just as He used Esther, Joshua, Moses, Noah, Elijah, David, Samson, Daniel, or Enoch.
   I leave you with Revelation 17:14 "These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them; for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful."  How I want to be in that number!
