Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Enemy Within”
Text: Numbers 11:4
“Now the mixed multitude who were among them yielded to intense craving; so the children of Israel also wept again and said: “Who will give us meat to eat?”
“The Enemy Within,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
The Enemy Within Is The Puppet of our True enemy, the devil!
I’m convinced that the Warrior’s greatest enemy is The Enemy Within: our old nature, the old man that we crucified on the cross with Christ, (Gal.2:20), has slipped off the cross and back into our heart. This enemy is slowly drawing us away from our intimacy with our First And Only True Love - poisoning our relationship with Him with his deadly virus of sin! The Bible shows you and I this enemy’s strategy within you and I:
“But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.” (James 1:14-15).
This is what happened to Israel and this can also happen to you and I Warrior!
This virus of sin is still the most deadly virus on the earth, it has a 100% mortality rate; every one will die; not just once physically - but Forever spiritually!
But there is a Cure, a Vaccine; the precious blood of Jesus Christ, which when applied to our life with confession and repentance of sin, and By Grace Through Faith - Will immediately cleanse us from sin.
There are symptoms of infection the Warrior can experience; loss of intimacy with their Commander, a cooling passion for souls, a growing affection for “the pleasures of the past instead of the glory of the future waiting for you and I in heaven, attitudes of selfishness and gain instead of self-lessness in love and service, becoming more friendly with the world’s pleasure than we are with Our Helper Holy Spirit!
When these symptoms appear, slam that “dead old man back upon the cross,” kill ‘um again with confession and repentance, and apply the Cure, the Vaccine of Jesus Christ to your heart! Oooh Rah! The Purifying fire of God’s Holy Love will roar through your “new man” once again, igniting a new hatred for sin sin and deeper love for God!
Once again, our enemy within is crushed and is back on the Cross and Under Our Feet where he belongs! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
