Any military general or leader will tell you that gaining victory depends on how thoroughly you understand what the battle requires. All the enemies of God and His work have never, and will never be able to grasp what they are up against.
One of our team pointed to Acts 5:38-39 the other day. The Jewish leaders, including the high priest, opposed preaching the gospel by the apostles and went as far as throwing them into prison, even wanting to kill them. “A Pharisee in the council named Gamaliel, stood up” and addressed those gathered. He pointed to other movements that had come and gone, thinking that the apostle might be just like them and their presence would soon disappear. Then Gamaliel adds; “if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You might even be found opposing God!” So, they took his advice” (Acts 5:39). This was very good advice!
How often do we shrink back from proclaiming the gospel or standing for biblical truth because we are intimidated by those who do not want to hear the gospel message or His truth? God’s purpose and plan stands forever. Opposing God will end in judgment. Let us stand for what is eternal!
