Escalate means to increase in extent, intensity, or magnitude.
Yes, the enemy is intensifying his attack. The darkness is increasing. But we must remember what God tells us:
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5)
He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings utter darkness into the light. (Job 12:22)
We ARE to be the light of Christ in this world! When others are walking in fear and hate is streaming forth…we are to be the voice of faith…the voice of peace…the voice of love…the voice of power.
We must remind ourselves that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12)
Brothers and Sisters, it is a SPIRITUAL BATTLE!! We must not get our focus on the people…but on the source!
Put on the armor of Christ…focus on the true enemy…and declare the LORD’S will upon the land!! It is time to BE the Church of the Living God and ENFORCE the VICTORY that has already been won through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ!!
There will be challenging days ahead in our country and in nations around the world. We must position ourselves to be “mighty oaks of righteousness” that spread our canopy above the land!
Do not despair…do not doubt…do not fear…
The LORD will march out like a champion, like a warrior He will stir up his zeal; with a shout He will raise the battle cry and will triumph over His enemies. (Isaiah 42:13)
