To be a Christian is to be a warrior.

The good soldier of Jesus Christ must not expect to find ease in this world: it is a battle-field.

Neither must he reckon upon the friendship of the world; for that would be enmity against God.

His occupation is war.

Hand to Hand Combat

Only those in regular hand to hand combat

against Satan and his kingdom,

will constantly see their need of God's power

to accomplish what He has commanded...

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light,
and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins,
and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
Act 26:18

The early church had the gifts of the Holy Ghost...

and God EXPECTS us to have them!

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:
and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea,
and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 1:8

The gifts of the Holy Ghost accomplish EVERYTHING the Holy Ghost does--

They convict of SIN...

DESTROY the works of the devil...

REVEAL the hearts of sinners and hypocrites...

ADVANCE the kingdom of God...

and EXALT the Lord Jesus Christ and testify of Him!

They are given by GOD HIMSELF to arm you for the conflict...

Because the battle is HOT on every side...

and the WARFARE is Spiritual.

No one can dis-arm you IF you possess these spiritual gifts
and heavenly weapons!

No one can render you defenseless!

Your weapons are mighty!

Being furnished directly from the heavenly armory…

Your spiritual weapons and armor
were MADE to be USED!

Their potency, strength and effectiveness are unsurpassed…



Subdue. Restrain. Resist.

Withstand. Put to flight. Drive back.


And to cause your adversary to RETREAT!


YOU have GREAT NEED of this heavenly ensemble…

For the Captain of your Salvation…

has placed you on the front lines…

of this raging Spiritual battle...

And HE expects you to FIGHT!!!

Art thou ready, SOLDIER, to quit thyself like a man of WAR?

Art thou endued with power from on high?

Art thou ready to face the enemy?

Hast thou donned the armor of the KING?

Hast thou girded on the SWORD for the fight….?

***Why don't we see more of the spiritual gifts in use today, you ask?
We do not see our need of them.
We do not desire them.
We do not pay the price to obtain them.

GOD is more than willing to give them...ARE YOU willing to pay the price to receive and USE them?

But thou, O man of God...
...follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called,
and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
1 Timothy 6:11-12

We fight for the truth.
We fight for righteousness, holiness, and purity. We fight for Holy Convictions.
We fight for peace of mind in a crazy world. We fight for love and joy. We fight for our right to pray.
We fight for truth and doctrine. We fight for Revival. We fight for a Move of God.
We fight for our Lord Jesus Christ! We fight for our God!

We fight for the Cause of the Church!
We fight for our children, Grandchildren, and families. We fight for our loved ones. 
We fight to see people saved, healed, delivered, and filled with the Holy Ghost.
We fight for our Churches. We fight for our services.
We fight for the ministry. We fight for the Hope of the Church.

We should PRAY and fight.
We should SING and fight.
We should SHOUT and fight.
We should fight when we are standing.
We should fight when we are sitting.
We should fight when we are flat on our back.
We should fight with our VOICES.
We should fight with a SONG.
Preachers, we should fight with a MESSAGE from GOD!
We should fight with the WORD of GOD.
We should fight with our testimony.
We should fight with our standards.
We should fight with a Prayer Meeting
We should fight by going to Church.
We should fight by having REVIVAL.
We should fight by telling EVERYONE about Jesus.

We fight against sin.
We fight against worldliness. We fight against compromise.
We fight against Heresy. We fight against spiritual deadness & dryness.
We fight against Gossip, bitterness, and strife. We fight against an invasive world system.
We fight against Religion. We fight against a Form of Godliness that denies the power thereof.
We fight against backsliding. We fight against the World, the Flesh, and the Devil.

The Church must "Fight the good fight of faith."
 Paul said at the end of his life, “I fought a good fight”. Do you know what he was saying? He was saying...
I have never backed up from a scrap! I never left a Church service without fighting for a move of God!
I never went to a city where I did not fight for souls to be saved!
I never once gave up without giving it my very best!”

Folks we may be bruised, scratched, cut, bleeding, and limping, but we must not stop fighting!

We Fight for TRUTH!” by Bro. Mark Herridge.

SOLDIER of the Cross

SOLDIER of the cross…art thou ready for battle?

Examine thyself…examine thy fruit…

Does thine HEART burn for HIM…



Has thine HEART been purified by the fear of GOD!?

Is thine EYE SINGLE in focus…

Is thine ear INCLINED to HIS VOICE…

Are thine lips circumcised to speak HIS TRUTH…

Have thine fleshly desires been put to death by the power of His Spirit?

Have thine thoughts been purified and purged by the washing of HIS WORD?

Have thou exercised thyself unto holiness, obedience, faith and godliness…

In the secret place of prayer, dost thou delight in the presence of the KING of KINGS?

Is thine HEART fixed upon the eternal Kingdom of God and His Christ?

Art thou ready, SOLDIER, to quit thyself like a man of WAR?

Art thou endued with power from on high?

Art thou ready to face the enemy? Hast thou donned the armor of the KING?

Hast thou girded on the SWORD for the fight….?

NOW…art thou ready to engage and overcome thine adversary?

To enter into dragon’s dens and devils haunts, and fight with thy glistening SWORD of TRUTH…

To cut to the ground and utterly demolish every evil stronghold and refuge of lies that hold captive
countless thousands of eternal souls?

Art thou ready to expose the kingdom of darkness and lay plain the face thereof..
that others may see, and tremble and fear the name of the Living God?

To stand alone, if need be, and defend those that cannot defend themselves?

To vanquish devils, heal the sick, set captives free?

Art thou ready, Soldier of the Cross…to take up thy SWORD and enter the fray?

To use thy most powerful weapon of war to bring LIGHT and TRUTH
to SPLIT the darkness like a garment rent in two?

Art thou ready to give ALL to the cause of CHRIST?
