THE REMNANTS RESOLVE ON BATTLEFIELD EARTH

For Christians, all is not right while living within this earth's domain. For this present time and season, Satan, the god of this world, has sway as prince and power of the atmosphere (2 Corinthians 4:4). As such, we remain in spiritual warfare until the day we are reunited with our Holy Father, Savior, and Lord - Jesus Christ. In this battlefield, we are not alone, as God goes with us, and before us. He sustains us in our injuries, and uplifts our souls when we cry out in anguish. Believers are under assault, as the demonic wages war on battlefield earth. Paul has stated, we do not wage war after the flesh...the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (2 Corinthians 10:3-4).
Those who claim this present world as good, providing a best life now, are grossly deceived. For the resolve says God, is that in this world we will have problems, and we are to take heart for He alone has overcome them (John 16:33). We are born into this spiritual war, and will die knowing, despite our strife, pain, tribulation, and sorrow, God alone is our deliverer! We know how this world war ends, for our Lord claimed Victory in Jesus upon Calvary's cross.
Weapons used against the Saints are troubling, for such are fueled and filled with Hellish principalities and powers sent from Satan's army. While it is true that Satan uses tools to make war against the army of God (Revelation 13:7). The remnant remains intact and empowered by Christ Himself! Whereby the attacks of the enemy so played and swayed against us, fall and ultimately fail.
The remnant of our Holy Father, are those who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ (Revelation 12:17). So seared within the hearts and minds of the remnant is this testimony, that all battles waged against us, are used for God's greater eternal purpose and good (Genesis 50:20). Difficult times are counted as reward, knowing our home is in heaven, and this world is but a passing, short segment of time. Eternity in heaven, which is our home. Where our tears are wiped away, and death will be no more, nor will our mourning, crying, or pain remain, for all such former things will have passed away (Revelation 21:4).
Remaining a good soldier for Christ is a matter of Biblical endurance, and prayer. We pray to avoid temptations, sent by the enemy of our hearts and minds peace. We pray to remain strong, steadfast on a course of spiritual intent. For no one who endures hardship will desire to entangle himself with the ungodly affairs of this life, but will strive to please God, who enlisted such remnant soldiers (2 Timothy 2:3-4).
Clinging to His Holy instructions, we claim His word, will, and ways, not our own. Thereby taking our place in the History journals so documented of this world, written down in full account, by our Holy Father. We who overcome, will be clothed in white garments, our names written in the book of life, as Jesus confesses our names before the Father and angels. Our names account for good, in this spiritual battlefield. And We, the remnant of God, know who We are, as We fight the good fight of faith, as Soldiers for Christ! (1 Timothy 6:12).
