Be Bold

Be bold

 

Be bold, courageous, and fight my Warrior Princesses and Princes. This is not the time to hide. There are many battles to be won by the Kingdom of God. Yes, the Lord will fight for us, but we need to show up to the battlefield with our armor on!

 

Lion of Judah

 The wicked flee when no man pursues them, but the [uncompromisingly] righteous are bold as a lion. (Proverbs 28:1 AMP)

 

Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and  very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9 AMP)

 

In the day when I called, You answered me; and You strengthened me with strength (might and inflexibility to temptation) in my inner self. (Psalm 138:3 AMP)

 

Since we have such [glorious] hope (such joyful and confident expectation), we speak very freely and openly and fearlessly. (2 Corinthians 3:12 AMP)

 

Ephesians 6

 

There is still a battle going on my friends. And these days the darkness is increasing. We have two choices:

1. Run and hide

2. Shine the Light in the darkness.

I have been silent the last few days. After my last blog post about “How to Recognize a Witch that comes to Church” I have been bombarded by negative comments from practicing witches. Especially on my Tumblr sight. There have been over 40 likes, reblogs, comments etc.(click here to read them for yourself)

 

And my sister, a practicing shaman, has attacked me as well. I had to choose which way to respond this week. I chose to stand. To stand on the Word of God, the Blood of Jesus, and used my testimony to share what I believe. Some were open to sharing beliefs and thoughts and others just attacked.

 

It is sad, they have been lied to. Satan is the father of all lies. They have been decieved. They are worshippers, but talk to dead people and spirits instead of Jesus. And their lives eventually will end in death and hell. If they curse us, the curse comes back to them 3 times over. And like the slave girl in Acts 16, they are being used for profit.
As we were on our way to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who was possessed by a spirit of divination [claiming to foretell future events and to discover hidden knowledge], and she brought her owners much gain by her fortunetelling.

She kept following Paul and [the rest of] us, shouting loudly, These men are the servants of the Most High God! They announce to you the way of salvation!

And she did this for many days. Then Paul, being sorely annoyed and worn out, turned and said to the spirit within her, I charge you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her! And it came out that very moment. (Acts 16:16-18)

 

Yes, “Greater is He who is in us than He who is in the world.” But how will they know if we do not open our mouths and testify? Yes, there will be persecution. But isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be? Be be bold with your faith my friends. Wake up from slumber and apathy. There are souls to be won and lives to be changed. Pray for Light to shine into the darkness, and be willing to take it there. No, not all witches will respond to the light – but that is their choice. That doesn’t mean we don’t shine it. There is a war to be won, and we know who wins!

Have You Met Lady Wisdom?

Lady Wisdom. Wow, I wish I would have met her earlier in life.  Live and learn  I guess. I am grateful that today we are friends. I recently started reading Proverbs in the Message Bible. It really has opened my eyes to the “heart” matters. I was not raised in Church. I did not a Bible until I was 30 something. I did not know how to discern good people from evil people. I believed what people told me – even the lies. I was naive. But without the Word, it was like walking around a big forest with no compass. I was lost. Proverbs helps me learn what good looks like and what evil looks like.

PROVERBS 4:16, 18 MSG

Evil people are restless unless they’re making trouble; They can’t get a good night’s sleep unless they’ve made life miserable for somebody. Perversity is their food and drink, violence their drug of choice.

The ways of right-living people glow with light; the longer they live, the brighter they shine. But the road of wrongdoing gets darker and darker—travelers can’t see a thing; they fall flat on their faces.

 

 

PROVERBS 8:12-21 MSG

“I am Lady Wisdom, and I live next to Sanity;
Knowledge and Discretion live just down the street.
The Fear-of-God means hating Evil,
whose ways I hate with a passion—
pride and arrogance and crooked talk.

Good counsel and common sense are my characteristics;
I am both Insight and the Virtue to live it out.
With my help, leaders rule,
and lawmakers legislate fairly;
With my help, governors govern,
along with all in legitimate authority.

I love those who love me;
those who look for me find me.
Wealth and Glory accompany me—
also substantial Honor and a Good Name.

My benefits are worth more than a big salary, even a very big salary;
the returns on me exceed any imaginable bonus.
You can find me on Righteous Road—that’s where I walk—
at the intersection of Justice Avenue,
Handing out life to those who love me,
filling their arms with life—armloads of life!
