At the time I posted that, I suppose it might have been, much the way it's your focus when you're in the foxhole on the battlefield. There's a time and place for everything.

I've been away for so long, I'd have to review just to see what I was talking about. Good to meet you, Sir.

Precisely, I think of Gideon. I am not graced with great bible history but he was, I think, equipped for the task at hand till he he was ensnared by idolatry.

Scripture's description of Satan as "a liar and the father of lies", and "a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour", along with ""seeks only to steal, kill and destroy" are  a good summary of our enemy.

I ask myself when I fail, how can I put any confidence in my own strength? My flesh is weak & the enemy is watching. Where is my armour? Put in on & be ready! Everything we need to fight the battle our gracious Father has ready & waiting for us! Grateful for this post & need to remember the spiritual battle going on all around & all the time. Trying to win on my own has left regret & heartache & I really needed to read this today.

Leaven=Pride. Doing it MY WAY like HaSatan.

Leaven is darkness and a place that Yahweh steps around because He is light.

Leaven devours all in its path and all that comes into contact with it.

Maybe he should give less to a charity or the church, shouldn't his wife come first if things are that bad, I don't know if I'm taking this all wrong.

Matthew chapter 6 verse 24

"No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

 

I would go without to help my wife, and I don't give money to a church, but I'm not spending it on myself, or hording it like some people do, Jesus taught me to not hold on to money or love money, where I want more.

 

 Habakkuk chapter 2 verse 13

Has not the LORD Almighty determined that the people's labor is only fuel for the fire, that the nations exhaust themselves for nothing?
Jeremiah chapter 51 verse 58
This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Babylon's thick walHabakkukl will be leveled and her high gates set on fire; the peoples exhaust themselves for nothing, the nations' labor is only fuel for the flames."
 
 
 
Who ever loves money never has money enough.

Great article and much appreciated!

I've often thought about this myself and even asked my Pastor a stupid question about the power of the devil. 

For some reason I was thinking Satan could only tempt us externally, via our eye and ear gates, our senses. I asked my Pastor if Satan, in addition to suggestive power, if Satan had the power to directly implant thoughts into our brain? He responded yes, Satan has that power. A careful reading of Eph 6:16, it appears Satan and his minions can directly send un-Holy thoughts and temptations directly to our minds. Would you concur with this idea?
