False Battles

   My people, the battle for souls rages around you. Many battles spring up on the sidelines, but this is the battle of My heart. My desire is that none should perish, and this is the battle I desire My people would fight.

   Satan plans to start many more battles to pull your focus from the real battle, to spend your energies, to take your thoughts off the one I have declared as most necessary.

   What battle is of greater importance than the eternity of even one soul in My eyes? Did I not say a shepherd leaves the ninety-nine to pursue one lost sheep? And so I call you to do the same.

   Do not be deceived by calls to false battles I have not appointed you to. The enemy has a plan to draw you away from the real work to be done, but My desire is you will do as I have called you to do.  

2 Peter 3:9
  • The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
John 3:16
  • 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Matthew 18:12
  • 12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
1 Peter 5:2-10
  • Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
  • Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being examples to the flock.
  • And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
  • Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
  • Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
  • Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
  • Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
  • Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
  • 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
