Fight the good fight of faith... for the sake of the kingdom of God


The Church is inasmuch in a sad spiritual state nowadays as Jacob descendent Israel was in Egypt.  Once freed from slavery and from the influence of the Egyptians gods and principalities, in the wilderness God taught them the way and the truth preparing them for their inheritance in the promised land.

God’s plan is to deliver us the Church from slavery, (1 Thess 4:16-17). Believe it or not, this present world is Egypt (spiritual Babylon) worldwide. There is an event called the rapture, where Jesus will come and take us out of Egypt but this time the Church will not be taken into the wilderness. Time spent in the wilderness was Israel consequences for their disobedience for refusing to enter the promised land.


The Church will be taken to heaven and will be taught for seven years the truth of God’s stewardship preparing us to reign with Jesus at the end of the 7 years tribulation on earth.  When Israel was in Egypt, the wrath of God came before their deliverance, as for the Church, the wrath of God is manifest worldwide - (Egypt) after our deliverance.

At the judgement seat following the rapture, each Christian will give an account of their stewardship on earth. That will determine which position of governance they will receive (crown) for the Kingdom of God. The truth will be revealed and also the principalities pertaining governing as kings in God's kingdom. Inasmuch as God instructed Moses His precepts and principalities for His people Israel before entering the promised land so will Jesus instructs the Church before entering His kingdom on earth. Now you know why all Christians are admonished to fight the good fight of faith... 

“But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing, which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen,”    1 Tim 6:11-16
