At times the Body of Christ, AKA the Church, seems to have
- fallen in with the world,
- given in to the seductions of the flesh, and
- sold out to the devil.
Individual soldiers may have fallen prey to the fiery darts of the enemy, thus making the corporate Body weaker. But our Commander-in-Chief is coming again; and when He comes with reinforcements from the heavenly realm, our eyes will see the glory of the coming of the Lord.
In the meantime, Jesus is able to save with few as well as with many. His Spirit is strong in the hearts of those who live by the Spirit and His promise is sure: He will build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
