Ephesians the 6th..chapter beginning from the 10th verse it commands you to be strong
in the Lord
and in the power of his might!
and how you're gonna be strong? You gonna put on the whole armor of God
So now..God command you to be strong
and the reason why you want to be strong is because he want you to stand against
the enemy..because, believe it or not
You've got an enemy
Some of us don't even think there is a devil
because the devil got them so bad..they don't even think there is a devil
But the word of God command you that you must be strong in the Lord
And in the power of his might
and the way to do that is to put on the whole armor
He didn't say half of armor Minister Tarawally..(Amen, Al-le-lu-ia)..He said the whole armor
Amen! And the reason again is so that you may be strong and also, so that you may be able to stand
against the wiles or the schemes of the devil
Because the enemy have some plots and some schemes coming against you. One of the reason is that..
because you power over the enemy.
And when you recognize that you got the power over the enemy, the enemy can't
come at you like he always use to..
Now he have to plot, but when the devil have a plot God's got a plan..Amen..Tell the Lord Thank-you!
So now ..the reason to be strong is to be able to withstand
Not just only to stand but to withstand
Also in the evil days..because they're gonna be some days that are evil.
So now there is a commandment!
He said.."The people that do know their
shall be strong.."
What I want to ask you.."Do you
Oh don't answer too fast
because you have to qualify
in this that I'm asking you!
For a people that said they love God, "Do you..
Its gonna be required
All of you all..sorry I didn't give you a proper introduction I'm coming.Amen.
Its gonna require in these days, these last days
that you do
know your God..
Its gonna be require..
Its gonna be incumbent
to know who God is..
Just merely saying you're
and trying to carry a title or name
will not qualify..because the enemy
is not fighting fair nowadays. He's coming
up into the church and daring you
letting you know who god is
trying to make himself god.
You got to know the difference
between the God of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ and everything else that call
themselves god..So the Bible says
The people who do know their God..
..know their God
Time-out for weak christians
although they say let the strong bear the infirmities of the weak, its time out for weak
Its time-out for weak
we've got to be strong
I say you got to be strong!
You got to be strong! I look around some folks are not strong.
The devil come and take their joy!
And the word of God said "The joy of the Lord
is your strength!"
Reason why you don't have joy... you don't have the joy of the Lord
Al-le-lu-ia, JOY OF THE LORD.
JESUS ONLY YOU!
'J' for Jesus, 'O' for only and 'Y'... you!
Jesus only you!
So you got to get the..Joy of the Lord.
What i'm saying is.. Joy (Al-le-lu-ia) is not just laughter or not
something that make you feel good when conditions are right..Joy
is a state of mind that no matter what's happening
you know Jesus gonna make it alright!
Somebody aught to tell me thank-you!
For that one..No matter what happen, God's gonna make it alright!
That's the kind of Joy I have.
And when you going through a lot of test, when you going through a trials, it does not matter what I'm..
going through, as long as I know, I got God on my side, I know
its gonna be alright! Because I do know my God and God's
He never fail! He never sleep! He never
Slumber! Al-le-lu-ia, He's always
victorious! Give the Lord praise! And give the Lord glory. You got to know your god(repeat)
Al-le-lu-ia..Now I wanna say this..now..
I didn't realize when I look
lets go over there to Ephesians that I quote
When I look in Ephesians
The 6th chapter
and when he tells us
that we ought to be strong..Finally brethren be
strong in the Lord vs 10 Ephesians 6
and in the power of his
You only have power when you have the Holy Ghost
And Holy Ghost have might!
And he said..put on the whole armor of.. God
So God got some armor..
That he said you should put on! Oh you got to look at the Word closely..
Can I teach tonight?
Put on the whole armor of God
That you may be able
to..what? Stand! Stand against what? Against the wiles of the devil
Uh..Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles or schemes of the devil.
For it tells you..that you wrestle
But you're not wrestling against your brother or your sister..(you wrestling)
For you wrestle not against flesh and blood
Who is flesh and blood. We are!
We are flesh and blood. But you wrestle against what?
power, principalities, powers..
Against rulers of darkness of this world..
Against spiritual wickedness in high place
So now it tells, where..
Wherefore, take unto you the whole armor of God that you maybe able to do what now? (Stand)
Not just stand alone!
There're some time you got to stand, and if you get knock down you got to come back up and stand some more.
Because you can stand all you want to..
..every now and then you going get knock down.
But it not the fact that you get
knock down, but you can get back up..Al-le-lu-ia
And stand again! that mean you'e withtood
Come on tell the Lord, thank you!
So the Bible says..
So that you may be able to withstand..
What..in the evil days
So you know that evil days are coming.
If you don't already have it!
because the Bible is telling you!
Are you seeing this.. there?
And having done all to stand
Now the Bible says having done all!
I don't want to hear from anybody
Who haven't done all..to stand.
One of the thing that I did not even realized.
One of the first thing that God say you're to put on in order
to be strong..
"Is the Truth!".. Look at it!
I stop.. take a good close look at the word..
Stand therefore having your
loin girded about
with truth..hold up.
Where is your loin?
Your loin is from your waist
to your thigh.
That mean, no lies
should pass through this area here!
The Bible said..one of the first
thing you put on is truth
The Roman Soldier..(Man of God)
When they go into battle, one of the things that they wear is a
Belt or a Girdle..And on that
They're able to put all their other armor
Lets go over to the spiritual side, Truth
that you know. the truth which is of God which is Christ Jesus,
when you got truth on you can't do nothing against the truth but
for the truth.
Tell somebody the truth today, they don't like it. They leaving the church.
So that mean ..You..You don't know your God
Because if somebody tell you the truth
And you don't like it you get up (..I don't like it) And you go into a church where
they're watering it down
You don't know your God!
Because on the spiritual side (Al-le-lu-ia)
Jesus said now.. I am the way, the truth and the life..No one can come to
The Father..except by the way, the truth..Oh come on here!
Somebody feel me tonight! You think
I'm just gonna preach it up!
I'm go teach a little! Teaching is good Brother!
Oh I found that out, teaching is a good thing
