Nothing Less than the Intentional Unrelenting Faith and Persistence Will Annihilate Hell’s Minions
By Dr. Lindy S. Diffenbaugh, D.D.
There is an entire chapter in the Book of Hebrews that speaks of “Heroes of Faith.” These carried very little fame in their day, but in this day they are known for their staunch resistance to death, hell, and darkness. They were mighty warriors who never hesitated to stand against and overcome hell’s onslaught, for the Glory of God.
The author of Hebrews lists a litany of men and women of God whose absolute commitment to the plans and purposes of God, literally changed the World for the Glory of God on this Earth!
Whether or not they knew that they were impacting their world for God’s Kingdom Purposes, is not certain. We do know that they were fearless and willing to fight to their death if they had to, in order to allow God’s Kingdom to overcome and prevail on this Earth.
Most of God’s “Heroes of Faith” were not wealthy, nor did they carry great physical strength; however, despite their lack of wealth and their physical make-up, they carried an entire treasure chest of Spiritual Passion, along with an extremely rich heritage of Faith for God’s purposes and plans for their lives and their missions on the Earth.
The depth of their passion was God released and they did not hesitate to yield their all for His purpose to be fulfilled through their lives!
The strength of their passion emanated from the knowledge that God had given them both the assignment and the ability to carry it out.
They Took Hold of God’s Mission for Thier Lives, and They Ran with It
These were keenly aware that if they did not prevail in the battle, that they would be overcome by their enemies, and hell would prevail against God’s chosen people.
They were willing to sacrifice their own lives, before they would hand the devil the victory. They Always Knew How to Stand Against Every Weapon of Hell and they knew what to do when Hell was exerting its mightiest weapons.
These weapons were fashioned to push God’s warriors into a corner of fear with threats to their lives, their families and their futures. Yet they never gave in to the threats, because the caliber of their God given purpose and passion, prevented the fear factor from holding them back in the battle.
Each of these Fearless Warriors Walked Through Obstacles and By God, They Prevailed Above Their Enemies!
Forces of darkness endeavored to stand in the way of living out their destiny; each of these intentionally faced the enemies before them and proceeded to run the course that God had determined for them to carry out on this earth. The author of Hebrews honored them when he wrote that “these were those of whom the world was not worthy.”
It should also be noted that there were also others who lived their lives on the Earth by listening to God, learning of His ways, and running the race of life all the way through to absolute victory.
By allowing God to walk with them through the demonic forces that ruthlessly stood in their face, and in the end they manifested overcoming victory on Earth, as it had been planned in Heaven.
