I plead with the church, don’t back down, don’t give in. Your work was mandated by the charge we were all given as the children of God to promote the gospel. The government is not who is in charge, God is in charge. Stand strong, keep your faith and remember who is truly in charge. They want you to leave and get out of their way to pave a clear road to destruction. May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are not here to glorify man, but God. You shall not die but live and declare the works of the Lord.
He is the sole expression of the glory of God (the light being, the out raying or radiance of the divine), and He is the perfect imprint and very image of God’s nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high.
~ Hebrews 1:3
Today I am thankful for the Word of God and how the spirit sheds light on it’s truth. His word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. As I walk in His path, His truth lights my way, revealing the roots of false values and false teachings so that I stay clear of those kind of entanglements, that would cause me to stumble.
