A CALL to BOLDNESS-
by: Nanci Marshall

God is calling an army of holy warriors who are being prepared for the front lines of His battle.

There is a gap the size of the Grand Canyon between these holy warriors [minority] and the rest of the world/church [majority].

The church in Ephesus had left its first love, the church in Pergamos had not held to the truth of doctrine and teaching of scripture, the church in Thyatria allowed/tolerated false teachers and false doctrine, the church in Sardis had an appearance of being alive but was dead, the church in Laodicia was neither hot nor cold. Only two churches were spoken of, Sardis and Philadelphia, that had a good word spoken by the Holy Spirit, but they too had work to be done.
Revelation 2 and 3

We are not to be afraid..!!...

Remember in Numbers 13 and 14, when Moses was commanded by God to send 12 spies to scout out the area surrounding the Promised Land - 10 returned frightened to the point of recommending they not try to take the Land Promised by God, only Joshua and Caleb were fearless (see Numbers 13:30)

Numbers 13:30-32 - "And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. But the men that went up with him said, We be notable to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel..."

Joshua, Caleb and their descendants were rewarded for their courage while the remaining 10 spies (the vast majority) were severely punished as were their descendants.

So be encouraged - if you feel frustrated, fearful, discouraged or defeated take heart and walk in the fullness of your calling:

"You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light" (1 Peter 2:9)

Remember we are the called - ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE (Ephesians 1: 7-13; 1 Timothy 1:9; Romans 8:28)

WE ARE BLESSED.!.
