Word for the Week...MARCH 6 --- 12 / 2006

"To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the Church the manifold widom of God. (v.11)  According to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Those who are convinced they 'know better than God' (!), would do well to study these verses, which clearly show us the Divine Masterplan and our part in this, as the Church of the Living God. You see, God Has a way of dealing with His enemies; in this case those principalities and powers, at present in rebellion against Him. He Has chosen you and I, members of the body of Christ, to display His Wisdom, in all holiness and reverence, humility and worship.

We need to realize that we are in a spiritual battle, whether we want it or not ! With the privilege of being the called of God, we have the responsibility of fighting the good fight of faith.'Bless-me clubs' are fine, but satan scoffs at these pitiful excuses for 'the army of The Lord' !. We are 'more than conquerors'...(Rom.8:37-39) and we are to prove it, in our daily experience, against the hordes of darkness!!! (Rev.12:11). How are we to do this? There are many scriptures that point us in the right direction..e.g..2Cor.10:4...'pulling down strongholds' , Jude 20...'praying in The Holy Spirit'., Mark 11:23...'speaking to the mountain' etc,etc. Later, in this letter to the Church at Ephesus, we are admonished to 'put on the whole armour of God'...Eph.6:11. Never go into battle unprepared !!! ................But do go, because The Winner, Whose Name Is Jesus, Has gone before us all...(Heb.12:1-3).                                                                    May The Lord Bless you.
