God is love as well as the righteous God. He is the same in the old and new testament.
As Christians we know that we are children of God and the world are under the control of the evil one but greater is He who is within you than that in the world.
Revelation 17:14 They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers."
Revelation 16:15 "Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed."
God will come like a thief without permission and be prepared, as in the end times, most people will defile thier faith. They will condemned God.
How can we prepare ourselves?
By standing firm in our moral standards and be firm not to fall in to temptations.
Don't relax and always be on guard.
Remember the church of Sardis:
Revelation 3:3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.
2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.
1 Peter 4:7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.
Armageddon - The heal of geddo [research] place of slaughter
If you want to win the battle - be with Jesus. We are not fighting against the flesh and blood.
Don't store up for yourself but store your treasure in Heaven.
We can not serve two masters at the same time. Where your treasure is there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:1 Be careful not to do your acts of righteousness before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.Christ told us to be careful not to show-off before men, especially in doing good things. The subject that He is talking about are GIVING, PRAYING and FASTING.
We need to thoroughly look to ourselves and be honest before God. Are we giving, praying and fasting to please God or men?
I remember what the Apostle Paul wrote; "what ever you do DO IT ALL for the GLORY OF GOD". And that's the thing we need to be mindful of, DO IT ALL FOR GOD'S GLORY and you will be rewarded for that!
