Hello, John and Doves,Some of you Doves are suffering under a Blitzkrieg of the Enemy.Here's a lesson to tuck under your pillow at night.
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never -- in nothing, great or small, large or petty -- never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom--at Harrow School, October 29, 1941
Bible references:"Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,"According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:"Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;"And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;"And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity."For if these things be in you, and abound, they make [you that ye shall] neither [be] barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ."2 Peter 1:2-8"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."Galatians 6:9
"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
"By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
"And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
"And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
"And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
3 "If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;
4 "Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
5 "And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
6 "And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make [you] afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
7 "And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword.
8 "And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.
“All the promises of God are in Christ, yes, and in Him, our ‘Amen’ ascends to God for His glory.” 2 Cor 1:20
“For He has raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms, because we are united with Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6
"My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." Isaiah 26:3
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
"As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
"Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Finally, how can we be sure of all these wonderful promises of God?
It is written,
"I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed by all the honor of your name."
"Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
and gave him the name above all other names,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:10-11
