Serving to Protect

I’m a firm believer of the Gospel.  I firmly believe that God has control of all things.  I do have some thought on the issue of protecting family and self.

Over the weekend I heard someone say they didn’t need a weapon in their house.  Jesus was their protection.  I, no doubt, believe that angels and the will of God play an ultimate part in protecting my household.

I also know that God expects us to play a part in our protection.  Anyone who has ever studied the Old Testament will tell you that it is a bloody testament.  It isn’t just from the sacrifice of bulls and goats, but also the blood of enemies from battles by the Israelite warriors against their enemies.  On into the New Testament are examples of blood letting mostly against Christians.  On into the Roman Empire’s hay day Christians were fed to lions for the entertainment of the cheering crowds.

Christians are described as The Army of God.  We fight spiritual fights against the powers of the invisible.  We have to be discerning of what is really happening, but we must not allow our bodies to be terminated or there will be no representation of God in the earth.  We have to be bold.

Some can indeed be martyrs, but there has to be some of us to be warriors of the faith.















About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
