“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

The world has been more advanced technologically, yet people have been in worse conditions spiritually and morally than ever. It can be frightening when you think of the kind of world you are going to face and the kind of world your children and grandchildren will grow up in.

You need courage to live in these confusing times as a child of God. Yet courage appears to be in short supply today. Sometimes you forget what real heroism and real courage are. You wonder where the heroes are now.

Any believer of God who stands up for what he or she believes in is a true hero. It takes courage to be a follower of God, to live an uncompromising life, to do the right thing and to proclaim the brand of the Etherean Mission.

It takes courage for a young believer of God to resist peer pressure and remain sexually pure until marriage (maturity) and to remain faithful in that marriage. It takes courage for a family to stay together and to resist the temptation to cave in at the first sight of a problem or a challenge to the vows they have made to one another. It takes courage today to be honest and not cheat on others. It takes courage to follow Father-Mother God. It takes a real man or a real woman to stand firm in these challenging times.

Oh you hero whom God knew and appointed as a healer to the nations even before your mother conceived you. Arise; you are the answer to the prayers of the unborn generations. You cannot fail and you must not fail. You are a hero unto humanity!

Be strong and courageous because you are not alone; for God is with you. Amen!
