Contend Earnestly For The Faith

The faith, as is found in Jude 3, is the system of redemption. It is complete and will furnish man completely unto every good work. (2 Tim. 3:16,17). It needs no additions nor subtractions. (Rev. 22:18,19). It is not something that we build on as we go along. It is that which we must accept as it is and follow it to the letter.

It is the sword, the Word of God, an offensive weapon, which is to be drawn and remain in the hand of the soldier of Christ at all times. (Eph. 6:10-20). The soldier of Christ, having put on the whole armor of God, must draw his sword and step into the fray against Satan and all of his false teachers and practitioners whether they be in the church or out.

Yes, "Soldiers of Christ arise and put your armor on; Strong in the strength which God supplies through His beloved Son." Let us never turn our back upon God and His cause. Let us wield the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God and cut asunder all falsehood. There is no place for timidity in the army of the Lord.
