Bible Ballistics: BBs #45 Victory’s Source

As we’ve been talking about victory in the perilous times in which we live, I’d like to continue with our thoughts on standing in the ‘evil day’.  How do we have consistent victory? As usual the answer is in the ‘Word’.

2 Timothy 3:10-17, But thou hast fully known my

doctrine,

manner of life,

purpose,

faith,

longsuffering,

charity,

patience,

11 Persecutions,

afflictions,which came unto me at Antioch…… what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 **Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.** 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine,

for reproof,

for correction,

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God (or woman of God)may be

perfect (mature),

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Wow!! What more can I say?

Know what the word says—

about doctrine/truth—

about what’s wrong—

about how to fix our own lives

so others can see the real Jesus clearly in us—

to prevent error by knowing righteousness.

So?  Here’s our shot for the day—?????

Get in the WORD

be equipped,

mature,

and show Jesus

to the world

by your works.

Others are watching you, and like Paul, we can be confident in what we’re showing them today when it’s the ‘WORD’.

So?  Get in it today, and know persecution will come!
