Engaging and Enraging the Enemy

1 Peter 4:12-13 tells us "Be;poved, do not be suprised at the fiery ordealamong you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strang thing were hapening to you but to the degree that youshare sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation." This is an important truth that the builders of the city wall discovered, if you are going to build up the city walls, the enemies of the city of God will come against you. Much better however to haveengaged the enemy than to live in cowardice and hiding, never posing a threat to the kingdom of darkness
