The battle that is ultimately won


Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;  + Ephesians 6:11-18

We are in a fight. Who are we fighting against? Who is on our side? What do we do when wounded?

The Feast of the Transfiguration


The Feast of the Transfiguration is one of the most important and revealing Feasts concerning not only the Life of Christ and the revealing of who He is as God incarnate; but also, since we are in union with Him, our ultimate destiny in His Kingdom. On Mount Tabor, Christ took His three chief disciples, Peter, James, and John, and there He showed forth Himself in what can only be described in human terms as brilliant white raiment, His face shining like a sun. In doing so He reveals Himself to be truly God incarnate; but that is not the only important truth that was revealed, for along with Christ there appeared Moses and Elijah who also appeared looking exactly like Christ in that they were also adorned in white and glowing just as brightly as Jesus. This confused the disciples who thought they might be seeing three Divine beings, so they wanted to build three Tabernacles to commemorate the experience.
