|Weapons In The War|
|2 Corinthians 10:1-5 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A stronghold is something that has a hold of one that is strong. Addictions, fear, doubt and a lack of faith are all strongholds. Jesus can help you only if you let Him. Some say that we use Jesus as a crutch but the truth is, we should. We should depend on Him with anything and everything from the largest to the smallest things in life. Now we as humans do not have the ability to break a stronghold but we know the one that can.
The war against the strongholds are not and will not be the carnal objects. Most that want help want it instantly which they will turn to drugs, medication and alcohol. The carnal objects are temporary just covering up the strongholds. So how do we fight against the strongholds?
Eph 6:14-17 these items are spiritual items, they can't be physically seen.
If you want out of the stronghold then ask God to have it removed but you must be ready AND willing. If we believe that God can remove the strongholds then why are they still in our lives? Because we think we can fix it ourselves. One problem is that non-spiritual people are thinking they can be cured of their stronghold thru God. The unsaved can't speak spiritually because they do not have the spirit of God in them. Now if you're born again then you have a power within you that is able to remove the strongholds. The second problem is that the saved try to fix it with fleshly fixes. The saved should be praying for the strongholds to be removed from others lives. If you're one of the ones that try to fix the problems yourself then you'll walk around worrying yourself to a literal death.

|Are You Bearing Good Fruit?|
|Galatians 5:16-25 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|To live in the spirit you must be born again. There was a reason that Jesus had to go away. If He had not gone away then the comforter would not have come. If you're saved then you should act that way. Gal 5:19-21 bind one to the world and should not be a part of a Christians life. Gal 5:22-24 should be reflected by a Christians life at all times. Are you bearing good fruit? A person can not love unconditionally without the love of Christ and in order to have that one must be saved. The unsaved can only love if they are loved back. The Spirit of God is to be active and not dormant in a Christians life. If no one is able to see your fruit, is it really there? The second thing that God produces is joy. Joy can not be produced by a person. What you feel when something makes you happy is only temporary and will eventually disappear. Most "joy" down here is a lust of the flesh happiness. Jesus gives us unspeakable joy that is everlasting. Peace, another fruit that's given during Salvation. Peace that can surpass all troubles and difficulties. Nothing can give a person peace like Jesus can. Jesus may not move the mountain in your life but He will give you the peace to climb it. Longsuffering a fruit from God above and an attribute of patience. When our loved once are living dangerously in the world and God tells you to let God have them, that requires much patience and longsuffering. A Christian should have gentleness. How many times have you wanted to "get even"? Don't overlook gentleness because it's a tough one in the world we live in. Goodness, there is none good but the fruit of the Spirit can produce it. If there has ever been a time to need good Chrisitians, it's now. Those Christians that would get into the ditch to help another without thinking about themselves. The faith that we have comes from God because without it we would struggle to believe. So how does one receive the faith? Walk in the Spirit. Where we can't, He will. All of the fruits of the Spirit is what Jesus had, therefore being a Christian is being "Christ like". Love those that hate you, pray for those that hate you, care for those that are enemies to you. Those things are meekness. Temperance or self-control. We could all use more temperance. We live in the world full of addictions, pornography, drugs, sexual sins, all lusts of the flesh. All nine of these things can not be produced by oneself. They can only be produced by God alone thru Salvation.|

|Itching Ears & Counterfeit Money (Part 1)|
|2 Peter 2:1-3 (Part of the 2 Peter 2 series).|
|Whether you are accepting or not to the Word, it will always go out. We should always be aware that man should not be listened to over God. People have always wanted an easy solution. There is not another gospel other than that of Jesus Christ. We should stand and be faithful to the truth of God. We are living in a world where people look at the truth as an infringement on their lives. Anyone can look at the world and see that their was a designer. People do not like God because it clashes with their lifestyle. People say they want the truth but they really don't, they only want what they want, something that tickles their ears. There will be consequences to avoiding God's Word. Personal opinions and agendas simply do not matter when it comes to God's. God has not changed and will not change. Living amongst us today are also false prophets that have false motives, messages and beliefs. There have always been and always will be those that want to teach false teaching. Those are the enemies of God and they can not be battled with our flesh but only in prayer. What motivates false teachers is greed. God's will is that no one should parish in the end. Those that are unlearned in Gods Word and they will be preyed upon by the false teachers. God has never promised wealth, health and prosperity. Not only are there false teachers but there teaching are also false. Anything that doesn't declare that God is the only god then it's a false message. Unbelief is the only thing that will keep anyone out of heaven. The false teachers also have false motives. Truth can be used as a disguise for a lie. How many people are tricked by someone saying it's ok because this scripture says one thing so it must be ok. We don't have to know all the lies, only the truth. To find counterfeit money one doesn't study the counterfeiters, they study the real money. The true definition of truth means that there can be only one truth. All of the others are false. By definition God is love but God has also declared what is a sin and He hates sin. God has not changed His mind on what is sin. Are we living in a time such as these? In the end we will al be judged, not by someone else but by God's Word the Holy Bible. Buddha can't help you, Mary can't help you, Money won't buy your way in, Grandparents salvation or church going won't help, Church attendance won't help, Allah won't help, etc. Only the truth, Jesus Christ, living God will help you on judgement.|

|Hebrews 2:13-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We should be honest when we pray. One can't repent for another person. God has seen us at our best and He has known us at our worst. We've all been as a hypocrite and think that we've got God fooled. There is no excuse for our pride. God was born into the flesh so that He could experience the temptation of sin. It doesn't matter your age, if you are holding sin within, you must let it go. When you allow God to move into your life completely you will quickly find out that the world holds nothing you want or need. God is not mocked, He requires ALL to repent. Your lifestyle matters to God. What is a god? A god is something one depends on, trusts in, can't live without it. Although God knows about your sin, He doesn't condemn you.|

|Does Truth Exist?|
|John 18:37-38 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The truth is not ones opinion. Sexual preferences is just that, a preference, it does not make it truth. Another example of truth that doesn't matter where you come from, one plus one equals two. So does truth exist? Who makes truth? Do you? Did your neighbor? Your parents? Truth exist because God created it. People are the ones that excludes others based on their option of truth but, God includes. We must decide if truth exists. You may think that you can live whoever you want and you can, but that does not make it right and the truth. God does not care what you think about the truth because He created truth. Truth is not about you but about Him. Truth is the measure of how everything is judged. In our culture people state that truth does not exist but contradict themselves but declaring is DOES exist. So if God is true and you are living contrary to Him, then you are wrong. So spiritually, will you concede to Him. So, does truth exist? What will you do with truth?|
