Brethren: adelphos - true brothers, comrades, and partners 

The word ”brother” emphatically declares that it’s not really how well you fight in life that counts.  What really counts is that you keep on fighting!  So don’t give up on yourself, and don’t give up on those believers around you who seem to be struggling.  As long as they keep on trying—as long as they stay in the battle—they’re worthy of your friendship! 

I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.   (I Thessalonians 5:27)

More than conquerors: hupernikos = overwhelming conqueror; paramount victor; enormous overcomer

Nay, in all these thing we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. (Romans 8:37)

This word is so power-packed that one could interpret it as a phenomenal, walloping, conquering force!  That’s precisely who you are in Jesus Christ!... Regardless of your past experiences, you must begin to look at yourself through God’s eyes and in the light of Romans 8:37.  This verse declares that you are always the winner and never a loser!

Afflictions: pathema + mental pressure: a war on your soul     

A spiritual fight usually does occur when you’ve been specially illuminate to the plan God has for your life… If you have been in the place…be encouraged!  This is probably your clearest signal that you’ve received a real word from the LORD…Just hang on and don’t give up.  You’re  clearly headed in the right direction.

But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions.  (Hebrew 10:32)

So easily beset us: euperistatos = Sometimes in order to make necessary changes in your life, you must physically remove yourself from an unprofitable situation.  Be honest as you consider your workplace, your friends, and your living conditions.  Is your environment conducive to your walk in Christ?  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us. (Hebrews 12:1)

Forsaking: (egkataleipontes)out, down, and behind   This word describes a person who feels left out, down, depressed, and far behind everyone else…  Church is the last place the devil wants you to go when you’re feeling low!  He knows if you go to church, you will be touched by the Presence of the Lord; you will get encouraged by other believers; and in the end, you’ll crawl out of that hole the enemy has put you in and rise up to a place of heavenly victory.

Not forsaking the assembly of ourselves together, as the manner of some is… (Hebrew 10:25)  So Cornerstone Folks - let’s not let the devil talk to us!  We don’t need his help with anything.  Positive thinking is not always easy in hard times, but it is possible thru Christ Jesus, that dwells within you!

Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.  (James 1:2)

LAY APART: to lay something down; to push it far away and beyond reach

If we are going to get free and stay free, it won’t happen by accident.  We must start taking steps to remove those negative things from our life—to lay them down and to push them so far away that we’ll never be able to reach them again!  Victory is possible!  Have you tried and failed?  Gotten discouraged?  It’s ok!  That was actually a step forward in the right direction.  Dust yourself off and go at it again…victory waits for all of us that believe it can be done.  Get a visual and see the end results.  Then write the plan out and work it one step at a time. Get information that will help you to be a success.  Remember the Words?—My people suffer for lack of knowledge--- Write the vision down. We are able to achieve our goals! Because of HIS WORD! Think positive!
