Friends, this is only one example of what is happening in our world. False teaching is rampant and there are concentrated efforts to rid the world of Israel! Of course, the Bible teaches us that will never happen, but the battle ahead will be a fierce one.
True, the battle for the ages is taking place in the heavenlies and none of us could bear the scene if God pulled back the curtain. But Satan’s minions are also busy wreaking havoc on earth.
Christian friends, are you ready for battle? Is your armor firmly in place? (Ephesians 6:10-24) Deception is flying around in mass quantity. Be on guard, test everything against the Word of God and do not be drawn in by smooth or lofty words of those who wish to tickle your ears (2 Timothy 4:3-5), promote a “new prophecy,” or scare you with fear tactics. None of that is of the Lord.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.~1 Corinthians 15:58
Now, here is your assignment: open your Bible and go back to 1 Corinthians 15 to find out what the “Therefore” is there for! In other words, read that verse in light of the verses that proceed it!
