The Battle Is the Lord’s
Even though we walk about in flesh bodies, we do not war according to the flesh. The weapons we use in our warfare are not of the flesh realm, but very effective and powerful in Yahweh. Our intentions are to demolish strongholds, by destroying the carnal imaginations and every exalted barrier that lifts itself up against the truth and revelation of Yahweh. As overcomers, we must bring into captivity every thought unto the obedience of the Anointed Word.
Remember, we are getting ourselves in readiness to bring judgment against all disobedience after we have persuaded you to do exactly the same thing (see 2 Corinthians 10: 3-5 TLB).
We find that we must be very alert in our administration of the Word, for there is a very fine line between being firm and in becoming argumentative and defensive. We must stand and hold up a standard. But there are many people that do not understand the deeper things of the Word.
The deeper truths are not as trivial as some ministers would have us believe. These truths must be proclaimed, but the scriptures tell us, if any man is willfully ignorant, let him continue on in his ignorance. We are to break bread and sup with those that hunger and thirst after truth, but that is as far as we are instructed to go. Trying to feed those who have no spiritual appetite only promotes confusion, division, and strife.
The immature and contentious should be respected and loved. They should remain at the top of our prayer list. But remember, no man can come to the Father unless he is drawn by and to the Spirit of truth. Always have oil in your lamp and keep it burning, but leave the rebellious in the hands of the Lord.
