The Daily Word of Righteousness

The Tail of the Dragon, #34

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:13)

How We Can Escape the Spiritual Dangers of the Last Days

Whoever has an ear to ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches of today. Let him come aside and seek the Lord with unrelenting diligence until he "strikes fire," until the Lord Jesus draws near to him and assures him his prayer is being heard and his conduct is acceptable to God. There is such a thing as praying until we know God is hearing us.

There are a multitude of distractions, especially in the wealthy nations. It is difficult for wealthy people to enter the Kingdom of God because they have so many interesting alternatives and because they think their money is providing security for them. They waste time and energy on their "things." The truth is, they do not possess their "things," their "things" possess them and slay their spiritual nature. Those who are living in material pleasures are dead while they are living.

Whoever would escape from the deadly slumber of the Babylon (man-directed, institutional Christianity) of church organizations and activities must set himself or herself apart unto the Lord Jesus. He must pray. He must wait on the Lord. He must confess his sins.

We are not stating that the believer must leave his babylonish church, but if possible he must assemble frequently with fervent disciples of the Lord. Attending a large church once a week in which there is an entertaining "service" on the platform followed by a brief message from the Pastor that is doctrinally sound but lacking in prophetic fire; in which everything is comfortable, sweet, and "nice," but there is no "roaring out of Zion"; in which the end-time trumpet of God is not being heard; is of little worth in the program of developing spiritual conquerors.

No excuses are accepted. It is up to the individual believer to make his calling and election certain. There will come from the present generation "a great people and a strong." These warriors are being formed now. They are emerging from a variety of situations. They will join the ranks of the martyrs waiting in Heaven for the signal to attack.

Two Wonders in the Spirit Realm

Satan is a great wonder in the spirit realm, having seven heads and ten horns, and crowns on his head. God has given to Satan the authority and power Satan possesses, and God maintains very careful control over this assigned authority and power.

There is another great wonder in the spirit realm. Christ is being formed in the true saints.

The activities of the Christian churches are virtually powerless to interfere with the worldwide authority and power that God has given to Satan. But Christ who is being formed in the saints in the present hour is destined to crush the serpent's head.

And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. (Romans 16:20)

Powerful though they may be, Satan, Antichrist, and the False Prophet shall all be destroyed by Christ working through the warlike remnant of true saints.

The churches of today are largely ignorant of and helpless against the vast forces of wickedness arrayed against the righteous. But Christ in the Church is greater than all, and by Him evil shall be destroyed and righteousness shall fill the creation of God to the ages of ages.

Nothing can keep you from being part of Christ except your unbelief, disobedience, and carelessness.

To be continued.
