In Rev. 21:8 the word of God says that the fearful (which means cowardly in the Greek) will have their place in the lake which burneth with brimstone: which is the second death.I don't know about you but those scriptures speak volumes to me. I take this very seriously in my own life and I believe all who consider themselves men and women of God should take this seriously as well. God says that He did not give us a spirit of timidity but of power, love and a sound mind. He is not the author of cowardliness. We serve a mighty and courageous God who created a human race in His own image and breathed life into them and He expects us to be a people that conduct ourselves likewise just as we were created to do. We will never be as great as our God but we are to model His character. God is not in the business of creating milk toast Christians, the enemy might be, but not our Jehovah God.
I am looking forward to the day when men and women of God from all over the world begin to boldly speak-up once again and make a righteous stand against wickedness. I am not promoting activism per say as some might interpret it. I am simply saying that I would like to see men and women of God stand up for the Word of God and let their voices be heard. If the Word of God isn't being followed in us (the church), how are we going to make an impact in the world.
This message is for all who call themselves men and women of Jehovah God: "May all of us begin to make a stand against the enemy." If this fleshly vessel goes down at least we can go down in great courage and rise up in Christ Jesus who has the victory! And the gates of hell will not prevail against the church. We as the people of God need to make a bold stand and speak the Word and bring loving correction and instruction, and if necessary reproof or rebuke. We are all accountable to the Word of God, and no one is greater than our God.
When we don't make a stand for God's Word this is cowardly and this is a sin, and if we do this it is likely that we could be placing ourselves in the hands of an angry God. The fear of man must cease in Jesus name and God's people repent.
The Word says In Mt. 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. May this exhort all to make a stand and be a righteous people that are bold as lions. It is time!!! Here is a perfect example of why God's people need to start speaking up. The Word of God says to Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Tim. 4: 2-4).
