The time has come for Christians to stand together against our old adversary, the devil. We must forget about whatever differences we may have with each other regarding the interpretation of God’s Word. We must work together to protect and uphold each other as if we were literally each other’s family member.
If you knew that your earthly brother, sister, mother or father was in grave danger and about to be attacked in some way, wouldn’t you fight together with them against their attacker? How would you feel if you didn’t do anything to help them and they ended up getting killed when you may have been able to save them?
The first century church that is recorded in the book of Acts is the example that God wants us to follow in order to be successful as a family of believers in standing against the methods of our adversary the devil. They were successful because they knew that they were a family and that their heavenly Father would always be there to help them defeat the old enemy when they stood together and had a concern for each other’s well-being.
I Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. (KJV)
In the verses above, you should note that we are to resist the devil by being “stedfast in the faith”. Whenever the words ‘the faith’ are used together like this, it is referring to the family of faith of believers working together with one another to help each other. It was absolutely essential back then as it is today that the believers stood together against the methods of attack of the adversary.
You may wonder why God’s Word compares the devil to a roaring lion. The roar of a lion is what tends to freeze its prey in fear. A lion roars in order to announce and protect its own territory. Even in today’s world the lion is roaring and people are cowering in doubt, worry and fear. The adversary is intimidating and persecuting Christians these days like he never has before. Most Christians don’t even realize this at all.
Before Christ Comes Back, Global Persecution of Christians Will Escalate
If anyone has been paying attention to what is REALLY going on these days, they would know that many of the indications from the verses above are now beginning to increase substantially. Does this mean that we should all freak out? The answer to this question is clearly – NO! However, we should be taking notice and taking action so that we aren’t personally affected in a more traumatic way.
Watch this video below to see what the “lamestream” media is not reporting about the increasing persecution of Christians worldwide.
We are Told to NOT Be Ignorant of Satan’s Devices
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
This is an incredible video that unveils the spiritual powers behind what most people are experiencing these days and that they are having a difficult time explaining. Dr. Michael Heiser is VERY well studied and a DEFINITE source of understanding in these matters.
One of the names of the devil and one of his devices is as “the accuser” (Revelation 12:10). He accuses Christians in order to turn the world against us. He does this so that he can turn everyone’s eyes away from what he is really doing. Almost every child will use this same tactic when they are caught having done something wrong. They will blame what they have done wrong on someone else so that they might escape responsibility.
Did you know that Christians are even being labeled as possible terrorists these days in the Army training manuals of our own nation! That’s right. Check it out for yourself in this article right here… Fox News Insider. When this news came out, those responsible for such tyranny tried to deny it at first. Then they took action to claim that they have taken care of this problem… Army Halts Program.
The point that I am trying to make here is that things are only going to get worse and that we have a duty to protect and warn each other as Christian brethren. We must stand together in opposition to what is happening around us today in this nation and worldwide or else be murdered separately.
Our adversary is beginning to accelerate his plan toward controlling everyone in the world. He knows that his end is near and that people are waking up to the technologically tyrannical system that he is building.
In nature, when a lion attacks it always will go after the weakest and slowest prey. Many times this will be the youngest or the most infirm and elderly ones. By standing together in unity we can strengthen weaker believers among us and help to protect them from the evil one.
Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
