The Most Powerful Video Clip I've Ever Seen



As you can well imagine, I get a lot of things sent to me from the internet. Tonight, a staff member sent me the video clip above, and I want you to know that this video, without question, is the most powerful video clip I've ever seen. When you watch it, you need to know that it is real. The battle is real. The forces of evil are real.

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

Ephesians 6:12-17

This is such a fitting video message. I'm thankful that we are able to visually see and understand this struggle in such a dramatic way. This video illustrates why it is imperative that we put on the full armor of God. If you notice, the very first piece of the armor is the belt of truth buckled around your waist, and also, towards the end of the excerpt above is the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. This coincides with our current series of messages on being good stewards of the Word of God, which is the Truth. Do not take this video lightly. Do not take this struggle lightly. Do not take the Word of God lightly.

I look forward to seeing each and everyone of you this weekend in church, as we continue our series on the Truth.

I totally agree about this vid!!! I couldn't stop tearing up when my best friend showed this to me. Ah, what a humbling experience! I used to be like that girl. Distracted by the gnawing temptations that life threw at me. But not anymore, Praise the Lord!!! Because, now...like her...I'm FREE. Free in the arms of my Jesus!!

Please share this video with our church family. This is a very powerful video and would be greatly appreciated by our memebers and better yet church visitors.

Awesome, Awesome video! Do you have the video from a couple weeks ago in church where it says "6,000 years ago" and then at the end it shows the Lord's return? I would love to see that video again.

Thanks for posting this awesome video.
