Stay in the Battle!

 Kenneth W. HaginAll of us like to win first place. But you don’t lose just because you don’t come in first. You lose when you quit.

A lot of Christian men have given up the battle to receive their healing, to live upright lives, to stay faithful to their spouses and families, to follow God’s plan, and to obtain financial stability. How can you stay in the battle to do things God’s way? And if you’ve already quit, how can you get back in the fight?

First Timothy 6:11–12 says, “But thou, O man of God, FLEE these things; and FOLLOW after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. FIGHT the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” Notice three words: flee, follow, and fight. The success of your Christian life depends upon your learning these three things.


A Call to Arms: Refuse to Lose!

A Call to ArmsBy Kenneth W. Hagin

It takes more than horsepower to win an auto race. Drivers also need skill, knowledge, and the determination to stay in the race. And those who attended Kenneth W. Hagin’s A Call to Arms 2009 Men’s Conference heard continual reminders that these same qualities are vital to winning in life.

More than a thousand men gathered in November at RHEMA Bible Church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, for the three-day conference. This year’s theme, “Refuse to Lose!” echoed Rev. Hagin’s lifelong motto, “I cannot be defeated, and I will not quit!” And from his opening message, he and other speakers exhorted the men to stay in the battle to live for God and do things His way. Finances, sexual temptation, marriage, family, work, prayer, faith, growing closer to God . . . workshops and general sessions dealt head-on with these topics and others.


Heart to Heart: Keep the Fire Burning!

One of the greatest moments in the history of mankind was the Day of Pentecost—the day when the Holy Spirit was poured out upon the human race. Pentecost began in the Upper Room with tongues of fire and a rushing, mighty wind from Heaven (Acts 2:1–4). As time marched on, there were many great moves of the Spirit, but one by one, they all waned.

At the beginning of the 20th century the flame of the Spirit burst out again, and soon after, it was fanned in a little mission on Azusa Street in downtown Los Angeles. All at once, the fires of Pentecost began to spread all over the world! 


Second Chances

Second ChancesBy KENNETH W. HAGIN

Have you ever wanted a fresh start in life? Some people hope to get a new start by moving to a different city or state. They think they can erase their past failures by going somewhere new.  Unfortunately, this never happens. Why? Because they take with them the same old attitudes and habits that guarantee their continued unhappiness. People don’t realize that they don’t have to move to start over. They can stay right where they are and receive a second chance in the midst of their failures.

“Don’t remain in defeat. Get up. It’s time to move forward.”

We don’t have to allow the mistakes of the past to hold us captive.
