And for some of you… as your wife and entire family lays before you in a bloody pool, or ravished by starvation… you WILL blame God.
And God will say: I called your name. You ignored me. You rejected me. You weren’t listening. I didn’t raise a whole nation of pussies. You did it to yourselves. When did you ever say, “Here I am”?
I AM… told you:
Stand firm in the belt of truth buckled around your waist
with the breastplate of righteousness in place
for shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared
taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one
take the helmet of salvation
put on the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God
pray In the Spirit at all times and on every occasion
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong
“Prepare your shields, both large and small, and march out for battle! Harness the horses, mount the steeds! Take your positions with helmets on! Polish your spears, put on your armour!”
