ROM 12:19 Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.

Rachel gave birth to Joseph at the end of the fourteen years of Jacobs slave labor to Laban, and Jacob is now asking for permission to leave and go back to the promise land.

GAL 4:16 Have I therefore become your enemy by telling you the truth?

2Ti 2 - A soldier does not lead a normal life.

Every believer has been enlisted in the spiritual army of God as a spiritual soldier of Jesus Christ.

A soldier must give up his freedom to serve his country, and a believer is to give up his freedom to serve The Lord Jesus Christ.

MAT 16:24-25 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. “For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.”

GAL 5:13 “For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through virtue-love serve one another.”

1PE 2:16 “Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God.”

The philosophies are thrown at you from every angle. Human viewpoint rationalization comes from family and friends.

JOH 8:23 “You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.”

Satan has invisible missiles that attack the soul and cause human viewpoint on the part of believers which neutralizes them and draws them away from the PPOG.

The ultimate goal of the kingdom of darkness which attacks your soul is to do whatever it can to take you away from the PPOG and the teaching of Bible doctrine.

2CO 2:11 in order that no advantage be taken of us by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his schemes.

As the god or the ruler of this world, Satan has placed foolish individuals in positions of authority so he can try to control the entire world system.

REV 12:9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world;
