Wake up! Get up and Stay there!

Summarized by Elaine King

Wake up! Get up and Stay there!

WAKE UP, GET UP, & STAY THERE 1PETER 5:1-8

1 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:

2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

3 Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock.

4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Be Sober in the “Strongs Concordance” = “nepho” not intoxicated, free from illusion, free from the intoxicating influences of sin. Be vigilant. Steadfast in the faith.

There was a man back in 1965, who was popular back then and wrote a book with total disregard for the Lord. Here are some of the things the man said: The biggest con that the devil pulled off was with Adam and Eve in The Garden of Eden. Unfortunately even today he’s still pulling cons with God’s people.

The book goes on to say, If I were the devil I would engulf the whole world with darkness. To the young I would whisper the Bible is just a myth. To the old, I would teach Our father which are in Washington. I would urge more laziness. I would peddle more alcohol and tranquilizers.

We’ll stop on that, because It’s time for the Saints to Wake Up, Get Up & Stay There.

Ephesians 6:11-16

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

12 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.

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

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

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

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.It’s time to put on the whole armor of God because our struggle is against spiritual warfare. Take up your shield of faith that you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the enemy. God Bless You.
