Tough Minds For Tough Times

2 Timothy 3:1 It is an obvious fact we are in tough times, many people know this even those that are not students of the Bible or believe in God. The Bible calls these times we are in perilous times. Perilous times are hard, difficult times the Bible has informed us will occur here on earth before the Lord's return. We should know we are in perilous times because the Bible had shown us what things will be like during these perilous times. 2 Timothy 3:1-8 These perilous times call for being tough minded.

Isaiah 61:1-3 God has anointed His sons and daughters, His children, His church for a purpose. God is a God of purpose. He does all things for a reason, He created all things for a purpose. God anoints for a purpose and appoints for a reason. Jesus was anointed for a purpose. Jesus manifested for a reason - to destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8 That mission continues today through His church, His people, His children. Jesus was appointed or sent for a purpose - to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. To proclaim a new season, God's vengeance and to comfort the mourning. He was appointed to give beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. This appointment continues through God's people, His body. Everyone who has a relationship with God through Jesus Christ is anointed and appointed for a purpose. You have an assignment
