God’s Team Is At Bat! by Elaine Davenport December, 2010

YOU’RE PLAYING IN THE WORLD SERIES; RIGHT NOW


TWO TEAMS MEET IN THE WORLD SERIES.

ONE IS GOD’S TEAM AND WE’RE AT BAT.  WE’RE ON THE ATTACK AGAINST AN ADVERSARY WHO WILL PITCH THE BALL AND TRY TO GET US OUT.

THE OTHER TEAM IS COMPRISED OF AN UNUSUAL TEAM COMMANDEERED AND CONTROLLED BY SATAN FOR VARIOUS REASONS.

THEY MAY NOT EVEN REALIZE THEY”RE IN THE GAME AT ALL: LEST ALONE BEING IN THE OUTFIELD.

LET ME TELL YOU HOW DIRTY THE ADVERSARY IS; HE’S NOT BEYOND HITTING YOU WITH THE BALL TO GET YOU OUT OF THE GAME!

THE MESSAGE BIBLE SAYS:

“My people are ruined because they don’t know what’s right or true.” Hosea 4:”6

SO OUR OBJECTIVE IS TO KEEP YOU ARMED AND INFORMED.

THESE ARE SOME OF THE NAMES OF THE PEOPLE ON THE TEAM:

I’M EASILY OFFENDED, I’M BITTER, I’M JEALOUS, I’M A GOSSIP; I CAN’T HELP IT, REPENT FOR WHAT” HUH”, I’M PRIDEFUL, I’M BOSSY, I’M POLITICAL AND NOT SPIRITUAL, I HATE THIS GROUP, THEY DID THIS TO ME AND I’LL PAY THEM BACK, I’M SELFISH, I’M UNKIND, ME ME ME, I’M AN ATHEIST, I’M AGNOSTIC, I’M IN THE MIDDLE, IT’S ALL A JOKE, IT’S NOT THAT SERIOUS…

(more names continued)

I’M SCARED (YES) (How are you going to fend off an attack if you’re scared? It’s not likely to happen; fear is the opposite of faith) I DON’T CARE, I DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT, I HATE PEOPLE, I DON’T LOVE (JUST TO NAME A FEW)

I JUST THOUGHT YOU MIGHT LIKE TO KNOW THAT THE ADVERSARY IS ABOUT TO DRAFT SOME NEW FOLKS UP FROM THE MINOR LEAGUES; THEY ARE:

I DON’T GO TO CHURCH; I DON’T GET ANYTHING OUT OF IT, I’M NOT GIVING THE PREACHER ALL MY MONEY, GIVE ME A HIGH FIVE, I DON’T BELIEVE IN TITHING, MS. BACKBITER.

LIFE IS LIKE THIS BASEBALL GAME AND YOU ARE EITHER ONE OF THE STARS ON THE WINNING TEAM OR IN THE OUTFIELD ON THE DEFENSE.

YOU ARE NOT A BAD PERSON FOR BEING IN THE OUTFIELD. THAT”S A FACT; ALL THE MORE REASON FOR YOU TO GET OFF OF THAT TEAM.

I’M NOT HIGH AND MIGHTY EITHER. I’VE BEEN HUMBLED IN LIFE TOO. DON’T GET ME WRONG; I USED TO BE PLAY IN THE OUTFIELD FOR THE OTHER TEAM; NOT ON PURPOSE.

I KNOW THE DEVIL CRIED CROCODILE TEARS WHEN I LEFT HIS TEAM…BUT TOO BAD; SO SAD. HA HA HA. I MEAN IT.

I WAS THINKING JUST THIS MORNING ABOUT PEOPLE THAT I KNOW BEING IN THIS BASEBALL GAME. I WAS ABLE TO PUT EACH OF THEM IN THE OUTFIELD OR AT BAT BASED ON WHERE THEY WERE AT SPIRITUALLY. THIS IS CONTROVERSIAL BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE SAY: “YOU CAN’T TELL WHERE I’M AT SPIRITUALLY.” I AGREE. THAT’S PARTIALLY TRUE. BUT I CAN TELL WHAT SIDE YOU’RE ON. I CAN’T TELL WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO DO WHEN YOU GET THE BAT. YOU MIGHT HAVE ENOUGH SPIRITUAL FUEL TO HIT A GRAND SLAM OR YOU MIGHT STRIKE OUT. IT’S NOT MY CALL, IT’S YOURS.

ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT I GOT THE BAT AND THE OTHER TEAM BETTER WATCH OUT CAUSE I’M COMING FOR THEM.

I HAD ONE FRIEND AT FIRST BASE IN THE OUTFIELD IN TERMS OF HIS SPIRITUAL AWARENESS AND KNOWLEDGE AND I ASSESSED THAT HE WAS: BASED UPON WHAT HAPPENS TO HIM IN HIS LIFE, IN A DEFENSIVE POSITION.

I HAVE ANOTHER FRIEND A PRAYER WARRIOR WHO IS ALWAYS ON THE ATTACK AT HOME PLATE BATTING THE BALL IN THE WORLD SERIES.

THE GAME IS STACKED; THE TEAM AT BAT WINS.

WE KEEP HAVING TO BAT CONTINUOUSLY AND SOMETIMES IT SEEMS LIKE IT WILL NEVER STOP. WE JUST NEED TO BE CONFIDENT THAT WE WILL WIN THE GAME. I THINK THAT’S WHY WE’RE TOLD TO: “FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH.”

THIS IS WHAT THE MESSAGE BIBLE SAYS IN 1PETER 5:8

Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are —will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.

WHAT SIDE ARE YOU ON? DO YOU PLAY DEFENSE OR OFFENSE?
