There are no short cuts to God, nor to His Kingdom. You must humble yourself to the Way, walk in the Door, and accept the righteousness of Jesus Christ. If you attempt to go to the Father and His Kingdom, by or through any other means, you are nothing more than a liar and a thief. We Honor God when we respect His order.
The battle that is constantly going on in the spirit is not about us. The devil lost, so he wants you to lose. But we don’t have to fall for any trick or treat(delusion or fleshly desire) that the enemy has put in our path. God has and will always make a way to escape. So sometimes standing looks like running and running is the best way to stand.
