Only those in regular hand to hand combat
against Satan and his kingdom,
will constantly see their need of God's power
to accomplish what He has commanded...
To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light,
and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins,
and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
The early church had the gifts of the Holy Ghost...
and God EXPECTS us to have them!
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:
and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea,
and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
The gifts of the Holy Ghost accomplish EVERYTHING the Holy Ghost does--
They convict of SIN...
DESTROY the works of the devil...
REVEAL the hearts of sinners and hypocrites...
ADVANCE the kingdom of God...
and EXALT the Lord Jesus Christ and testify of Him!
They are given by GOD HIMSELF to arm you for the conflict...
Because the battle is HOT on every side...
and the WARFARE is Spiritual.
No one can dis-arm you IF you possess these spiritual gifts
and heavenly weapons!
No one can render you defenseless!
Your weapons are mighty!
Being furnished directly from the heavenly armory…
Your spiritual weapons and armor
were MADE to be USED!
Their potency, strength and effectiveness are unsurpassed…
FOR the TASK at HAND!
Subdue. Restrain. Resist.
Withstand. Put to flight. Drive back.
And to cause your adversary to RETREAT!
YOU have GREAT NEED of this heavenly ensemble…
For the Captain of your Salvation…
has placed you on the front lines…
of this raging Spiritual battle...
And HE expects you to FIGHT!!!
Art thou ready, SOLDIER, to quit thyself like a man of WAR?
Art thou endued with power from on high?
Art thou ready to face the enemy?
Hast thou donned the armor of the KING?
Hast thou girded on the SWORD for the fight….?
***Why don't we see more of the spiritual gifts in use today, you ask?
We do not see our need of them.
We do not desire them.
We do not pay the price to obtain them.
GOD is more than willing to give them...ARE YOU willing to pay the price to receive and USE them?
