Soldiers of the Cross, Press Onward and Be Not Offended!

For the servant (slave) of Christ (His soldier); all that he/she possesses is at the total disposal of Almighty God, to be used for His honor and glory here in time (Romans 12:1-5). Be not offended by what God wills, allows or uses in your life to further the Gospel message to a lost and dying world (Matt 11:6, Rom 8:28). Endure hardness as a good soldier (2 Tim 2:3-4). Sometimes the very thing in which we are seeking to preserve or save is to be on the chopping block and removed. Fret not my beloved, Almighty God is in absolute control!
Be not offended by what God wills, allows or uses in your life to further the Gospel message to a lost and dying world.

Beware though, this is a crossroad in many saint's lives where they look back and do not make it (Heb 10:38). They become a casualty and are shipwrecked in the faith. History is full of such. Guard your heart and be not deceived. There are many false saviors outside of the will of God for your temporal life that are nothing more than thieves and robbers. Remember Almighty God is absolutely faithful (1 Cor. 10:13).
Lucifer our adversary would seek to sift us as wheat to see if our desire for God’s will is real in our lives (Luke 22:31, 1 Peter 5:8). Adversity opens the door for apostasy. Be careful not to be deceived - with or by - earthy mammon, privileges or prestige; Seeing this passing world only through the ETERNAL eyes that Almighty God has equipped His dear children with when He saved us (1 Tim 6:6, 1 John 2:17).

Remember your current position in Christ at the right hand of Almighty God, blessed with all spiritual blessings!

Remember your current position in Christ at the right hand of Almighty God, blessed with all spiritual blessings; That we are but pilgrims and strangers here in time and that ETERNITY is our home, not this little vapor called life (Eph 1:3, Col 3:1, Heb 11:13); Understanding time in its proper perspective, in light of our Heavenly calling is key (2 Cor. 5:19-20, Phil 3:14).
Remembering that “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).” Be Strong and of good courage, remembering that we already have the victory my beloved (1 Cor. 15:57, 1 John 5:4). Have faith in Almighty God and expect the unexpectable from Him for His glory and honor (Mark 10:27, 11:22, Eph 3:20-21). Give thanks to Almighty God in everything and rejoice in the Lord! (1 Thess. 5:18, Phil 4:4)
Remembering His precious promises and the great reward for His faithful saints at His soon coming.
"For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" (2 Cor. 1:20).
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (1 Cor. 2:9).
"Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing" (2 Tim 4:8)
"And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever" (Rev 22:4-5).
Beloved of God, ENDURE! To God be the glory! The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at Hand! Even so come Lord Jesus!

Take That Hill, In God's Will!
Rule It All Joy!
Heaven’s ETERNAL Perspective Will Set You Free!

So we must teach our daughters!! The fashions for girls once they hit the pre-teen years are outrageous. I am a mother with no sewing skills. Shame on me! However, we buy NOTHING skimpy, nothing very fitted, and no bare shoulders or backs. And we look fine! Men, tell your wives about how visual you are so they can teach the girls. Women truly need to be taught this. They need to know just how responsible they are for causing others to sin, and what the consequences are. Most girls don't realize how the male brain thinks when it sees bare skin, tight pants, etc. Women, teach true feminity to your daughters. The kind of fish you catch all depends on the bait used!
