Danger is Near

Stay On Guard

Reblogged from Becoming the Oil and the Wine

We have already gone halfway through the month of January and by now you have settled in the routine that you have established for this year.

I pray that whatever you have decided to accomplish this year, God will grant you the desires of your heart.

There will be trials, but you will overcome if you remain on guard and in constant prayer.

Be aware that the enemy never takes a break. He is constantly shooting fiery darts at God’s people.

But be of good courage because you are equipped with the weapons of victory to enable you to walk through the midst of the riot.

During this year you can also expect to hear of natural disasters and man-made catastrophes. Some have already begun!

For example, the Australia bush fire that began September 2019 has already claimed twenty-eight lives and destroyed over two thousand homes and numerous wildlife continue to rage.

The threat of war between Iran and the USA appeared imminent.

Read more about these crises here.

Closer to home in the Caribbean were several earthquakes in Puerto Rico that destroyed several homes and buildings and claimed one life.

Let us continue to pray for the people of Puerto Rico and those whose lives are affected by war and other natural disasters.

Sometimes disasters will cast you down but you will not be destroyed because there is always hope in God.

In spite of all the negative things that are happening worldwide, it is possible to experience heaven on earth in your personal life.

You can live a rich and fulfilling life regardless of your status in life.

As a matter of fact, God desires that you be poor in spirit to inherit the kingdom of heaven. Additionally, the meek will inherit the earth (Matthew 5).

The Lord Jesus Christ suffered many things while He was on earth. Therefore, as followers of Christ, you can expect to be persecuted by the enemy.

Jesus said that if you want to follow Him you will have to deny yourself and take up the cross daily and follow Him (Luke 9:22-23).

It is a blessing and honor to be part of the family of God.
