Perseverance – used just one single time in the Bible and means to be persistent.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand…… Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Our nation is at the cross roads, almost to the point of no return, but I still strongly believe as I wrote many times in 2020 that Justice is coming and not just for the faulty election, but Justice on many fronts that will shake this nation to its core.
Make no mistake, I am not saying that the enemy will be defeated, ushering in a period of peace and prosperity. No, not at all. The Bible clearly shows us we are living in the final moments before the Tribulation period and all of those prophecies will be fulfilled exactly as the Word says. Life as we know it will never be the same, but I do believe we will see God’s Justice handed down and an outpouring of the Holy Ghost even if just for a very short period.
There is an evil spirit(s) that has a hold on this nation and we must be in constant prayer/perseverance to overcome its hold. This nation is tired and worn down just as the enemy wants it to be, but now is not the time to become complacent and conform to the demands, because the more you comply, the more they will take. Christians, step up and let your voice be heard peacefully. Pray and pray some more for God’s mercy and Justice on this nation.
We must never forget, that when God moves, it is always in His timing and not when we so desire. Sarah was 90 years old and Abraham 100 when they received the promised birth of Isaac. The first use of the word ‘justice’:
For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. Gen 18:19
