I am reading about the harlot in Revelation chapter 17. It is quite a description.
The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. – Revelations 17:4 ESV
How hard will it be to fight these great spiritual battles in the end times? If the battle is not in the church, it is definitely carried out in the lives of individuals. Are we conquering, are we reigning in truth and purity?
I know that without the help of the Holy Spirit, this is an impossibility. No one person could will themselves into such a position of strength against the world and what it has planned against those who follow Jesus. I pray that I will always have Him by my side and never reject His calling.
