 The Deadly Ground

The door swung open and the man walked in. With eyes that have seen blood and terror, he looked around quickly. Having located those who might pose a problem, he began to speak. "Which one of you wants to take me on? Let's get to it." He waited. Those he had assessed as a possible problem proved him right. Three of them stood up with anger in their faces. The four of them stood straight and still for a moment. You could just smell the tension in the room.

The one who had the most potential for trouble turned to his friends and said, "I say we go across the street and catch the action at Millies". With a laugh, the three walked past the man with eyes that never left their target. The man turned slightly as they left and watched them go.

Then, when they were dedicated to their words, the man turned to those left. "Good evening folks", the man said with a great joy in his voice. "My name is Keith. I'm the preacher from Tombstone. I've come to hold service with you tonite. Put down your drinks and lets rearrange the chairs". After a moment of shock and gawking to each other they got up and moved all the chairs. Without any farther dilly dally, the man began his prayer.

"Father in Heaven, I thank you for Your Glorious grace and mercy. It is good what You have taught me; When you enter a place make sure to shake out those who would stand against My Word. Now, by Your Majesty, we will begin to share the truth You have given Your servant. In the Glorious name of Jesus we pray". And the people said "AMEN"!

I make little apology to those who take offence at my words and my rough ways. I have learned, as had this man, to fetter out those who would stand against the words the Lord of Glory has given me. I walk on deadly ground as of late. And if fettering was important for me when I walked in the flesh, it is even more important now that I walk on Holy Ground. I have set myself against the world by the power of God within me. And I proclaim to all who read this, "The Lord God Almighty has blessed me with power to proclaim His word. All who would stand against Him will have no part with me. Yet those who stand with Him are my brothers."
