FOR GOD HATH not GIVEN US the spirit of fear; but of POWER, AND of LOVE, AND of A SOUND MIND. 2 Timothy 1:7. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. 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. Ephesians 6:11-13. SANCTIFY YOURSELVES therefore, AND BE YE HOLY: for I am the Lord your God. And ye shall KEEP MY STATUTES, AND DO THEM: I am the Lord which sanctify you. Leviticus 20:7-8. Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, BE SOBER, AND HOPE to the end FOR THE GRACE that is to be brought unto you at the revelation OF JESUS CHRIST; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so BE YE HOLY IN ALL manner of conversation; Because it is written, BE YE HOLY; for I am holy. 1 Peter 1:13 -16. (This next part is written in PURE LEGALISM to make a point). These are the COMMANDS of the Lord God Almighty, they are for us TO DO, NO QUESTIONS ASKED. He expects us to do ALL these things, AND MORE. No excuses to not do these things will be accepted. You Obey, or you don't, that's the bottom line. If you're 24 hours a day bedridden, NO EXCUSE. You have a big family, NO EXCUSE. You don't have a Bible, NO EXCUSE. The Holy Spirit WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS. He will run you to the very end of yourself and all your "resources" until you have nothing more to offer, THEN HE WILL TAKE OVER AND WORKING THROUGH YOU, HE WILL ACCOMPLISH ALL THAT HE HAS FOR YOU TO DO. All you have to do is Obey Him each step of the Way, WITH NO EXCUSES FOR DISOBEDIENCE. (Now the GOoD News. Willful, knowing disobedience will cost). BUT GOD, RICH IN MERCY AND GRACE, WILL FORGIVE, AND YOU WILL, BE BLESSED.
