Don't give up the fight

This is a reminder that we can't let down our guard for even a moment. No "rest" breaks are allowed in the midst of battle.

Have you noticed a new increase in the power and activity of the yetzer hara recently? A very big effort is underway in the spiritual realm to bring about the revelation of Mashiach. We can help push it through by staying faithful to the fight and not giving up. Even if we fall down, we have to immediately get right back up and keep going. The ball is rolling so fast, that falling down puts you behind the game, but this race doesn't go only to the swift, but to everyone who continues until the finish line.

Remember, the war against the yetzer hara is a fight to the death---his or ours.
