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 Time Is Now!

For the time has come…

for God’s mighty men and women of valor
to assemble with likeminded soldiers of the cross
and advance to the battlefield to fight the good fight.

It is time to understand …

these last evil days,
being Holy Spirit instructed with knowledge
of what battles we must fight and which skirmishes to avoid.

And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do;
1 Chronicles 12:32

For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war:
and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.
Proverbs 24:6

The devil is working overtime…

frantically trying to get God’s soldiers diverted off the battle field
and into Laodician churches to be entertained and happy,
rather than EQUIPPED and HOLY.


Satan’s forces continue to advance his kingdom…

Deception. Division. Darkness. Death.  

Christians must draw up in battle formation…

with HANDS divinely trained to battle
and with ARMS that can bend a bow of bronze
sending arrows into the enemies camp…

Now these are they that came to David to Ziklag…
and they were among the mighty men, helpers of the war.
They were armed with bows, and could use both the right hand and the left in hurling stones and shooting arrows out of a bow…
1 Chronicles 12:1-2

…such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with all instruments of war, fifty thousand, which could keep rank: they were not of double heart.
1 Chronicles 12:33

He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. Psalms 18:34

We have been girded with STRENGTH for battle…

so we can take up the FULL ARMOR of God
and  SILENCE His enemies,
forcing them to turn their backs to us as they FLEE…

For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle:
thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies;
that I might destroy them that hate me.
Psalms 18:39-40

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Ephesians 6:10

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  James 4:7

God is enlisting His soldiers to draw up in battle formation…

with a perfect and undivided heart under Jesus’ Lordship…

…such as went forth to battle…fifty thousand, which could keep rank:
they were not of double heart.
1 Chronicles 12:33

We must SKILLFULLY use all our spiritual weapons…

against the spiritual forces of WICKEDNESS,
working in the sons of DISOBEDIENCE…
even those in religious houses…

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil. 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 6:11-12

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves
into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself
is transformed into an angel of light.
2 Corinthians 11:13-14

And though we may find ourselves in a spiritual wilderness…

we are to have faces like a LION
and be as SWIFT as the gazelles on the mountains…

And of the Gadites there separated themselves unto David
into the hold to the wilderness men of might, and men of war fit for the battle, that could handle shield and buckler,
whose faces were like the faces of lions,
and were as swift as the roes upon the mountains;
1 Chronicles 12:8

We  are commissioned by Jesus …

We must not remain silent and passive at this time…
For we are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, and a holy nation.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation,
a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
1 Peter 2:9

God’s people must now volunteer freely, in the day of His power…

arrayed in holiness!

Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power,
in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning:
thou hast the dew of thy youth.
Psalms 110:3

We must not flee in fear …

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7

What shall we then say to these things?
If God be for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:31
