"Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever." Hebrews 13:8
"For I, the LORD, do not change..." Malachi 3
"The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him. The spirit of wisdom and understanding. The spirit of counsel and strength. The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD." Isaiah 11
"These are manifestations of the Holy Spirit given to empower Jesus Christ in His earthly ministry. If Jesus needed these, how much more do you as believers today need them to empower you to walk in newness of life, to boldly witness, and to proclaim the goodness of God without fear."
Battle lines are being drawn between God' people and the people of the world. Prepare for battle. We are not called to retreat but to advance.
"I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of this world, even as I am not of this world. I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. They are not of this world, even as I am not of this world..." John 17
