Don’t Stop Fighting, Kids!!
Remember mom shouting to you and your siblings, “If you kids don’t stop fighting I am going to …..!”
That was in the natural world! However, in the realm of the spirit, the Spirit says, “don’t stop fighting kids – for your life in God and for others’ life in God!”
Consider CHARLES Spurgeon’s thoughts about violence and fighting the good fight of faith! Wow. Selah!
Delivered on Sabbath Morning, May 15th…
“‘From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force,’– Matthew 11:12.
WHEN JOHN THE BAPTIST preached in the wilderness of Judea, the throng of people who pressed around him became extremely violent to get near enough to hear his voice…We find that the multitudes were immense beyond all precedent. He seemed to drain every city, every town, and every village, as he went along preaching the word of the gospel. These people, moreover… so intense was their desire to hear the Saviour that they pressed upon him, insomuch that they trod one upon another. The crowd became so violent to approach his person, that some of the weaker ones were cast down and trodden upon. Now, our Saviour, when he witnessed all this struggling round about to get near him, said, ‘This is just a picture of what is done spiritually by those who will be saved. As you press and throng about me,’ said Christ, ‘and thrust one another, with arm and elbow, to get within reach of my voice, even so must it be if ye would be saved, For the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.’ He pictured to himself a crowd of souls desiring to get to the living Saviour. He saw them press, and crowd, and throng, and thrust, and tread on one another, in their anxious desire to get at him. He warned his hearers, that unless they had this earnestness in their souls, they would never reach him savingly; but if they had it, they should certainly be saved. ‘From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.'”
Let’s rise up! Stand up! Speak up! And sign up to fight for our souls, for our children, grandchildren, our communities, and our freedom of religious practices and beliefs!
Never, never, stop fighting Church!
