A few days ago we started this article on “Just Keep Fighting Back”. We ended on the matter if you stick with God you can survive in any fight you enter. Glad to have you back again for the continuation.
Before we go any further, what does it mean to survive? Survive– to remain alive or in existence; outlive; persevere:
Anytime you hear about a fight or a war you also hear about casualties. It’s time now for God’s people to stop becoming casualties, P.O.W. and victims to Victors. I am not asking you if you like to fight; you better fight if you want to survive.
How did we get here? “7And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him”. Revelation 12:7-12 (KJV)
From then to now we were in a war zone. Take a look at a number of the movies, TV shows, cartoons, songs and the likes, they generally fall along these lines of good vs. evil. This leaves you with the choice who’s side will you be on?
Are you fit for this fight? There is always help available if you need it. “Blessed be the LORD my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:” Psalm 144:1 (KJV)
You have an assignment in this battle and you need to know what it is or you’ll be out of place. When you are out of place you can be responsible for causing trouble in the camp. You can also make it hard for everyone else.
You must also be aware that in every army you have traitors, betrayers, people who sell out to the enemy setting you up for the kill. Not all of the attacks come from the outside, many come from friendly fire. When you taught you were safe, now you need eyes in the back of your head cause you don’t know who to trust.
To keep fighting and survive in this fight you need to:
1. Know your enemy – (I Peter 5:8) Your adversary is the devil and you must treat him like that.
2. Communicate with the chief – (2 Chronicles 20:3; Ephesians 6:18) You have to stay in connection (pray) with headquarters.
3. Hear & follow instructions – (2 Chronicles 20:15-20) The instructions that are handed down are the plans and strategy of the chief. What chief doesn’t plan his attack or retaliation? (Luke 14:31) When you rebel you jeopardize your life and others.
4. Believe – (2 Chronicles 20:20) You will have a hard time if you don’t believe in the chief and his appointed officers. Other people who don’t believe will always try to stop you from going forward. Faith takes you forward.
Finally, I do encourage you to have enduring faith that will give you the edge over the enemy.

Are you ready to face eternity? If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life and desire to make that commitment now please repeat the following prayer:
Lord Jesus be merciful to me a sinner. I realize that I have sinned against you and come short of your glory. I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and I believe in my heart that God has raised him from the dead. I pray for your forgiveness and ask that you save me now and accept me into your kingdom. Give me eternal life today.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
