    For John the Baptizer came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, 'Behold, a gluttonous man, and a drunkard; a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' Luke 7:33 WEBThere was always a gloomy feeling that settled...

"Sold Out and Breaking through with Prayer"

  • 2 Timothy 2:4 "No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier."

    The Greek used in this verse is so very interesting. The word used for 'wars' or 'warreth' (KJV) expresses the idea of having involvement in a Military Campaign. It is 'strat EU MAI' which promotes the idea of 'one who strategizes'.

    The Real Christian Walk is, in fact, a genuine Warfare. And it is wholly possible that many who have entered this battle, have grown weary and have withdrawn.

     

    'Christian' - of John Bunyan's famed 'Pilgrims Progress' ... found himself in just such a condition. Tired and weary from his long journey ... he rested. But in his 'resting' he grew careless and began as it were .. to slumber.

    I can identify with Christian. Having a calling to Spiritual Warfare (as we all have) it has become the 'easy thing' to grow weary and to draw aside to rest. But with such a rest there comes despondency and darkness.

    Nominally, it is very 'easy' to outwardly be a 'Christian'. We can fill our mouths with 'God Bless You' and 'God Be With You', and not even be IN a viable relationship WITH God.

    Yes ... It is entirely possible to have involvement in church programs, biblical by nature ... and yet to have a Life remarkably absent from the Presence of God. Believe me ... I am NOT pointing fingers ... I know this from the First-Hand Experience!

    I love the above verse and as I was looking at the end word 'Soldier' .. I noticed that the First Four Letters of Soldier .. are S-O-L-D. And that really is what we must be to maintain our Strategy in the Kingdom of God. SOLD out!

    The Christian's Power is not discovered in His or Her Intelligence or by way of Special Gifts and Abilities. You can possess the Faith that moves Mountains and have the Ability to understand the Deepest Mysteries, and ... still be without His Kingdom's Genuine Power.

    You can have been Baptized with every Baptism beneath Heaven and sit under the most Gifted of Teachers and never complete a single work issued by God for You.

    And don't be fooled ... you can even have 'Love' and give all that you have to the Poor and Needy and be as far from the purposes of God as the East IS far from the West.

    Where do you discover the Source of this Great Power?

    It is found in the Tameion of God! (The Closet of Prayer, your inner chamber.) You and God and NO ONE else. Not with your husband. Not with your wife. Not with your dog walking in Nature.

    Yes, it is true ... those other things are a necessity. But POWER comes from Your personal 'Alone Time' with God.

    For this reason ... One can make a Thousand to Flee!

    Test the Lord ... Get ALONE with Him. And when you are alone ... Listen. Watch. And DO whatever it is He reveals to You!

    That IS the Source of our Power and without it ... it is no wonder we walk and talk like a clanging cymbal.
