Christians who are truly born-again by God’s Holy Spirit (John 3:3-8) are loaded to bear in this day and hour. We are born for such a time as this through the perfect will, plan and purpose of the Father God Most High Himself. It is He who revealed His salvation plan to us through Jesus Christ His only begotten Son (John 6:44).
Since God, His Kingdom, and His salvation is a mystery to those who are perishing (1 Corinthians 2:6-16), He chose us (who are saved and knows Jesus Christ as Lord) to be sanctified and unified by the Holy Spirit and thoroughly equipped for every good work (John 17).
And for Spiritual warfare (His Great Commission) in this last human generation as such a time as now through the blood, power, and authority of Jesus Christ our Lord.
He saw our greatest need (salvation/relationship with God our Heavenly Father) and also saw our greatest potential in reaching the lost for His kingdom at all cost, before He ever laid the foundations of the World (John 1:1-14).
So therefore, He has equipped us (through His Holy Spirit) with weapons of Spiritual warfare which are mightier than any carnal weapon on earth. He also armed us with revelation knowledge on how to use them if we are truly Jesus Christ’s disciples.
2 Corinthians 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience.
The Holy Bible teaches, there are three types of people in the world based upon how we act from the heart in the eyes of the Most High God:
1). Dogs (false ministers and backsliders) 2 Peter 2:20-22
2). Pigs (dirty, sinful, worldly and carnally-minded people) Matthew 7:6
3). Sheep (meek, and obedient Christians who follows Jesus Christ as Lord and Shepherd) John 10
