There is a true thief who seeks to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10, 1 Peter 5:8). This thief is after our minds, hearts, and bodies. Do not fear (2 Timothy 1:7), just be alert and watchful for the voice of the Holy Spirit which gives peace and life (John 6:63). Do not be discouraged by the physical attacks on the mind, heart, and body, but have faith (1 Peter 1:6-9). The physical is never more important than the spiritual (1 Timothy 4:8).
“What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever (1 Corinthian 15:50).” Stay focused. “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10:28).” “For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live (Romans 8:13).”
Those who will listen, I say “Armor up (Ephesians 6:10-18).” I declare that “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord (Isaiah 54:17). “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).”
