In all my years in ministry and watching the Christian Church from many angles, I conclude that the times we are in are some of the most difficult. God brought us through the painful separation from a cult. He helped us learn how to RETURN TO SCRIPTURE as the anchor of our faith. Through His mercy, we discovered fellowship with believers who really wanted to base their faith on the Word of God. By His amazing grace, I find myself shoulder to shoulder with brothers and sisters who want nothing except help the Church RETURN to the authority of the Bible and power of the Holy Spirit.
As we are being propelled toward the end of the age, we find ourselves among false teachers, deserters of the way of righteousness, and those who “accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions” (2 Timothy 4:3). Add to this pain, those who preach a political agenda rather than the gospel that “is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16).
Paul spoke to us for our times. In seven letters and sixteen times, he uses the phrase “stand firm.” He gives different reasons for standing firm, but the main reason in Ephesians 6:10-18 is because we must “be able to stand against the schemes of the devil” (6:11). Our day, like Paul’s, requires followers of Jesus to put on “the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm” (6:13). We are here to help you “stand firm!”
