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.

The Weapons of our Warfare

Put on the whole armour of God…
Ephesians 6:11

The battle is REAL…

The conflict is HOT…

Paul understood this when he penned…

these timeless words…

to the church in Ephesus.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might…

This impenetrable  armor is provided…

for your PROTECTION …

Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.
Ephesians 6:11

And for your DEFENSE…

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Ephesians 6:12

So that you can stand…

and WITHSTAND evil…

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand.  
Ephesians 6:13

and QUENCH the fiery darts…

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Ephesians 6:16

Being furnished directly from the heavenly armory…

Your spiritual weapons and armor
were MADE to be USED!

Their potency, strength and effectiveness are unsurpassed…

To defend ground…

and to TAKE ground from the enemy…

advancing the Kingdom of God!

To tear DOWN the strong holds …

that hold countless multitudes CAPTIVE…

and to SET them free!

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,
but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;
2 Corinthians 10:4


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.


If you’re in the battle for the Lord and right,
Keep on the firing line;

If you win, my brother, surely you must fight,
Keep on the firing line;

There are many dangers that we all must face,
If we die still fighting it is no disgrace;

Cowards in the service will not find a place,
So keep on the firing line.

Oh, you must fight, be brave against all evil,
Never run, nor even lag behind;

If you would win for God and the right,
Just keep on the firing line.

God will only use the soldier He can trust,
Keep on the firing line;

If you’ll wear a crown then bear the cross you must,
Keep on the firing line.

Life is but to labor for the Master dear,
Help to banish evil and to spread good cheer;

Great you’ll be rewarded for your service here,
So keep on the firing line.

When we get to heaven, brother, we’ll be glad,
Keep on the firing line;

How we’ll praise the Savior for the call we had,
Keep on the firing line;

When we see the souls that we have helped to win,
Leading them to Jesus, from the paths of sin,

With a shout of welcome, we will all march in,
So keep on the firing line.

There are many battles YET to be won…

Are YOU on the firing line?
