77th Anniversary of D-DAY - A Spiritual Analogy

















On June 6, 1944, 150,000 Allied soldiers clambered aboard heaving landing craft and braved six-foot swells, waves of machine-gun fire, and more than 6 million mines to claim a stretch of sand at a place called Normandy. Their mission was to carve out an Allied foothold on the edge of Nazi-occupied Europe for the army of more than one million that would follow them in the summer of 1944. This army would burst forth from the beachhead, rolling across Europe into the heart of Germany, liberating millions, toppling a genocidal regime, and ending a nightmare along the way. But it all began on this beach in France, with an army of teenagers on a day called D-Day. (link)

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13).
/
As we here at the IFB remember the 77th anniversary of this monumental historical event and the valor of those brave men who made up those liberating forces - the spearhead to liberate millions from Nazi oppression and tyranny - I cannot help but think of another highly significant day in the history of mankind which changed the course of mankind FOREVER.

On this Day of days, all was laid on the line for the rescue and liberation of all humanity from the tyranny and oppression of Lucifer (Satan), who is the demonic fascist and oppressor of all the world (Luke 4:5-6; Ephesians 2:1-3; Hebrews 2:14-15). Fallen humanity had been taken into captivity by Lucifer and enslaved in their transgressions. The horrible effects and consequences of Adam's fallen race are deadly and devastating and we all were in great need of rescue from the ETERNAL consequences (Romans 6:23a, 7:24).

The Son of Almighty God debarked of all His DEITY and His ETERNAL glory to bear the Cross of sin and shame for ALL of Adam’s fallen race.

Oh, on this day - The Day of all days - the Lord of Glory, the ETERNAL Son of Almighty God, the Word made flesh; debarked to bear the Cross of sin and shame for ALL of Adam’s fallen race (Rom. 5:12-19). He counted not His life precious unto death. He gave His last full measure (Isa 53, John 10:11, 19:30; Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 12:2)! He paid the FULL price for you and me so that through Him we might be LIBERATED from the oppression and tyranny of the devil (John 8:36; Acts 10:38; Heb. 2:14-15), and DELIVERED from this present evil world (Isaiah 53, Galatians 1:4; Eph. 2:2-3) and from sin and death (Psalm 103:12; 1 Cor. 15:53-57)! AMEN!

HIS infinite love, HIS selflessness, HIS steadfastness, HIS faithfulness, HIS righteousness, HIS commitment, and passion made possible our redemption and justification (1 Cor. 1:30; Phil. 2:5-8; Heb. 2:9-10, 12:2). He opened wide the doors of Heaven that ALL might enter in who put their ABSOLUTE TRUST in Him (John 1:12; Acts 16:31; Heb 10:19). AMEN!

The Victory of All Victories!

On the third day, He arose victorious from the grave and He defeated our arch-foes - Lucifer, the evil world system, and sin and death (Gen 3:15, 1 John 4:4, 5:4-5; 1Cor. 15:54-57)! He now sits at the right hand of Almighty God to testify and to make intercession for ALL who put their trust in Him (Psalm 110:1; Heb. 1:3, 7:25, 10:12)!

Oh, Glory! Oh, Praise and Laud to the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29, 1 Peter 1:18-21, Revelation 5)!

HE ALONE has fought and worked to liberate you from your transgressions, sins, and bondage!
.
Do you know the Great Liberator and Savior of the world as your personal Lord and Savior? HE ALONE has fought and worked to liberate you from your transgressions, sins, and bondage! HE ALONE can liberate you from the tyranny and oppression of sin and Satan!

LOOK UNTO Him today (Isaiah 45:22)! He will NEVER turn anyone away. “Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound!” (Rom. 5:20) CALL UPON Him today for deliverance (Psalms 18:3, 55:16, 116:13). You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Don't Be A Victim, Be Jesus' Victor!




















Beloved, daily bombardments from this demonic world seek to rattle and destroy the faith of the men and women of Almighty God (John 16:33; Eph. 6:10-12, 1 Peter 5:8). It is so easy to look inwardly and subjectively and see ourselves as poor wretched victims. It is sad to say that many blood brought children of Almighty God in Christ today choose unbelief which results in the shipwrecked life on the rocks of lawless consequences, subjectivism, and self-pity. Truly there are no utopias here on planet earth even for God's redeemed (Matt. 6:27-33, John 16:33, Phil. 4:6-7), but we are not to let the spiritual war and adversities of this life derail us from all that Almighty God wants to do in our life for His GREAT NAME'S SAKE and GLORY (1 Cor. 10:31; Eph. 2:10; Phil. 2:12-13)! Satan, in his absolute vain attempt to overrule ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS, TRUTH, REALITY, and the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person of Almighty God seeks to destroy the love and dedication of God's children. The Bible states: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8), and: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12).

Stay prepared... so that you are always prepared!

The truth of the matter is that we are in a Great Spiritual War for the hearts, souls, and minds of men (saved and lost). Many are absolutely oblivious to this REALITY and fact. Satan, in his hatred, rage, absolute disdain, and rebellion against Almighty God, seeks the ruin and destruction of anyone that practices the ABSOLUTE TRUTHS of the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and His Word (Luke 11:4; 22:31-34, Eph. 6:10-12, 1 Peter 5:8).

There is adversity upon adversity, calamity upon calamity in this fallen world. Again there is no peace, no Utopias on the battlefield of this life (Eccl. 1-12, John 16:33; Eph. 2:1-2). To think otherwise is a delusion and a lie. Be not deceived! This is not our home. Jesus said, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world (John 16:33), and: exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God" (Acts 14:22). The good news is that Christ will set up His Kingdom at His Second Coming to earth and establish His kingdom in RIGHTEOUSNESS (perfection). Then - and only then - will there be world peace.

Do not become a victim of circumstances but be a VICTOR for Jesus Christ by faith!

As we wait for His soon coming, looking into God’s Holy Word, the Bible repeatedly speaks of His great love for us. God's love, as defined therein, wants only the highest and best for the object of His love. The highest and best is the person of God and His will and way for each individual. God, who is infinite, gives all of His Eternal Person to finite man.

David stated; "What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour" (Psalm 8:4,5),

"Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered" (Psalm 40:5).

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:35-39),

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life(John 3:16).
.
Almighty God loves you!!! Don't let your own heart or Satan tell you otherwise!
.
Passing through trials and adversities, it might seem to some that our Heavenly Father is our enemy and that He doesn't care at all. Oh, Beloved, this couldn't be further from the TRUTH. Satan the thug and slanderer loves it when we disconnect by unbelief and are led and deceived into thinking and believing this (Psalm 81:10-16; 95:8-11, Isa. 65:2, Heb. 3: 12-19; 4:2; 6:11-14; Rev. 2:7). We are to cast down ALL that seeks to raise its self up in unbelief and fear! We are to cast down ALL that seeks to override all of the ETERNAL riches, promises, truths and realities which is found in Christ Jesus for us (Rom. 8:26-39, 2 Cor. 10:5, Eph. 1-2; Heb. 11:6; 1 John 5:1-4, Rev. 1:17-18). Beloved, by faith in Almighty God and His Word, we can defeat this strategy of the enemy of our souls and achieve in Christ the ETERNAL victory and whatever Almighty Go wills for us for His glory! The Bible states: "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?" (1 John 5:4,5).

The victory is gained when the child of God puts his or her faith and trust in the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person of Almighty God (Rom. 8:26-39, Phil. 4:13; Heb. 11:6; 1 John 4:4; 5:2-4; Rev. 1:17-18). As believers in the RISEN LORD JESUS CHRIST, we can by faith get through the adversity and calamity that comes our way, knowing that Almighty God our Father indeed loves us and has a GREAT ETERNAL plan to make us winners and not losers! Listen to this glorious promise: "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:26). Almighty God has a wonderful plan for you in any situation and in every setting!

In these last days may we be strong and of good courage; and have faith in ALL that Almighty God is. May we - with the eyes of faith - see past this physical world into the very throne room of Heaven, and be more than a conqueror in Christ., as Almighty God has called us!


'Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place" (2 Cor. 2:14)!

Remember, Beloved: "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you [i.e., Christ], than he that is in the world" [i.e., Satan and his minions] (1 John 4:4).

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Redeeming the Time Now for Almighty God in Post America!

 

Beloved, in light of the death of our American Republic and as the dawn of a new darkened America arises; may I greatly encourage all of us who know the Lord as our personal Savior to redeem the time now as Almighty God's ETERNAL ambassadors for the Gospel's sake! For indeed my beloved, our Lord is at hand and ALL His Kingdom promises ready to be fulfilled (Matt. 5:13-16; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Eph. 5:16-17; 1 Thess 5:1-5)! Beloved, fix your eyes, hearts, and minds with all joy on Jesus and on ALL His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS promises for you in Him (John. 14:1-3; 1 Cor. 2:2, 2 Cor. 1:20; Eph. 1-2; 5:16-17; 6:10-20; Col. 1:27; Heb. 13:8; 1 John 4:4; Rev. 1:17-18)! For in doing so, we will be ETERNALLY set FREE from this world's darkness and prison hold (Matt. 11:28-30, John 8:32-36; Eph. 1-2; Phil. 4:6-7; 1 John 4:4)! 

Beloved, fix your eyes, hearts, and minds with all joy on Jesus and on ALL His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS promises for you in Christ! For in doing so, we will be ETERNALLY set FREE from this world's darkness and prison hold!

Indeed, indeed! Jesus is coming for 
His bride and ALL things exceedingly show forth that His Trumpet blast is at hand; and that the Four Horsemen of the Day of the Lord are about to ride (Matt. 24:1-4; 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 6)! Our ETERNAL hope is in Jesus! May we never lose that ETERNAL TRUTH, SECURITY, and REALITY!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand my beloved and NOTHING in FOREVER will EVER EVER stop His Kingdom from coming! 

Phil 4:4!

Memorial Day in Light of Our Day

This Memorial Day we think of those who gave their last full measure on our behalf as Americans; to preserve our freedoms and liberties, which only come from Almighty God (John 8:32, 36, Gal. 1:4, 3:13, 5:1, Titus 2:14). There can NEVER be TRUE liberty in this fallen world without a saving relationship to our Creator and apart from the firm adherence to Almighty God's moral absolutes (Prov. 14:34). Our Founding Fathers knew this to be true and have communicated this to us in their writings and in our nation's birth certificate. Today, America has full well rejected our founder's vision and have squandered the precious shed blood of the brave American soldier. Their shed blood was shed to preserve our nation's founding ideals and to preserve our nation for future generations. Our nation today has overthrown and replaced our Founding Father's vision and has hijacked the supreme sacrifice of the American soldier in the pursuit to legalize lawlessness, tyranny, lewdness, perversion, decadence, political correctness, relativism, anti- Judeo/Christian values and anti-Americanism.

For us Americans today, who truly still remember and honor our nation's founding and understand the American soldier's supreme sacrifice in the context of true Americanism, today is a most holy day.

For us Americans today, who truly still remember and honor our nation's founding and understand the American soldier's supreme sacrifice in the context of true Americanism, today is a most holy day. This day is set apart in our hearts and minds to remember our nation's soldier's supreme sacrifice and selflessness and to never forget it, while we have breath in our nose. We are to pass along their remembrance and to teach our children that they would know of their valor, comprehend their sacrifice and NEVER forget.

In light of this Memorial Day I cannot help but take it to the ETERNAL level and think on the SUPREME and ULTIMATE sacrifice on behalf of the whole world, which shall endure FOREVER and transcends the limited confines of time and ETERNITY (Isa. 53, John 1:29, 3:16-17, 1 Peter 1:18-19, Rev. 1:5, 4:9-10).

There is ONLY One who is RIGHTEOUS and GAVE himself for the sins and transgressions of the whole world. That One is the Son of Almighty God Jesus Christ. The Bible states;

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17).

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit" (1 Peter 3:18).

As we see lawlessness abounding in these present days with no end in sight, may your heart be looking to the Savior of mankind. All of our HOPE is found in Him.
 

 .
Do you have a personal relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and truth as the Bible clearly teaches?

Do YOU have a personal relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and truth as the Bible clearly teaches (John 4:24)? If not, be sure to place your trust in Him today. It is absolutely crucial for your ETERNITY. He will deliver you from ALL of your transgressions against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes of Almighty God and the lawlessness of your heart (Jer 17:9). May you place your trust in Him today! You will NEVER be the same!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
