Brethren, we must stand firm on God’s Truth. It only takes one waking day in this decaying world to recognize the perilous times at hand. There is an increasing urgency in our commission as we prepare for our beloved Groom.
Everything true and just is found in God’s Word. His
precepts and promises are immutable and He is seeing it all through to
fulfillment. Lest we fall slaves to the deceit and bondage of this world, we must don the sword of the Spirit and guard the precious Truth entrusted to us.
His Truth is holy, pure and without compromise. With it, we are fully
equipped to live a life that is righteous and blameless in His
sight...as worthy vessels for the priceless cargo we carry for our
beautiful Lord and Savior. His Word contains every perfect instruction
to serve honorably in our faithful race.
Beloved brothers and
sisters, He IS the way...and the gate is narrow. Stand firm...be
encouraged...and always be prepared to share the source of your hope.
Speak truth boldly and without shame, but always with the love of Jesus.
Oh, how blessed are those who receive Christ into their
hearts! For, they shall walk in truth, love, light and freedom...and
unto them is the imperishable crown of eternal life!
He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery.
1 Corinthians 16:13
Be on the alert. Stand firm in the faith. Be men of courage. Be strong.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for instruction, for
conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that
the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.
But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death
to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from
accusation if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do
not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that
you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven,
and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; Whoever is
discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right, And
the righteous will walk in them, But transgressors will stumble in them.
But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it.
For this reason, you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him.
Nevertheless, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of
Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or hear about you in my
absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending side
by side for the faith of the gospel.
And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
1 Peter 3:15
But in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to
articulate a defense to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the
hope that you have. But respond with gentleness and respect,
Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the LORD.
Aleph. How blessed are those whose way is blameless, Who walk in the law of the LORD.
Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, that is how you must stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has
stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised
to those who love Him.
