“There can be no moderation in regard to moral principle. Since what is good leads to success and what is evil leads to failure, in any compromise with evil, it is only evil that wins, bringing failure a step closer….
A moderate is someone whose chief goal is to be included and liked by everyone. Invariably, he ends up being respected by no one, a reality that he studiously neglects to notice. A moderate is someone who is so open-minded that his brain has fallen out, whose singular distinguishing characteristic is his inability to take a stand, whose chief virtue is a complete absence of the instinct of self-preservation….” -P.S.E.M.
Child, if you are ashamed of Me I will be ashamed of you. This is a call for you to take a stand for Me. I am for you. I have always been for you. Even before you knew Me I died for you. How much more now that you have come into the light will I defend you and stand for you? I was lifted up for you. My banner over you is love. I will never fail you. I will never turn tail and run away from you. My name is Defender. My name is Advocate. My name is Provider. My name is Savior. My name is who I Am. I can not be anything but who My name says I Am. What about your name, Beloved of the Lord? Will you stand up for what you believe in? Will you witness and testify to what you hold firmly in your heart? Will you shrink back when persecution comes? When trials and suffering are upon you? These threaten to beat you down, but with faith, the power of the Holy Spirit always rises up against persecution, trials and suffering. I never back down from confrontation. I never back down from speaking Truth. Truth always prevails! Rise up, Child! Take your stand! Stand for Me!
