Is God Building an Army of Peacekeepers?

EzekielIs this a time for war or a time for peace?

The truth is God is raising an Army of Believers to fight for the human race against spiritual darkness. We fight to the glory of God, for the Prince of Peace, with the power of the Holy Spirit who operates within and through us.

Ready: The world is becoming a very dark place spiritually. Youth are depressed, trained to believe there is nothing after this life and that freedom is doing what you want. Bereft of hope, so many people are turning to substance abuse as false comfort. These are only two of many areas that reveal spiritual darkness. Prayer and praise, the application of God’s Word in our lives and for others – these are the weapons of our warfare to combat spiritual darkness.

Set: What is spiritual warfare? How do we apply the weapons that we have?

A look at Ephesians 6:10 – 18 will serve to deepen our understanding and preparation. We know the truth (vs 14) and must grow in our own character to have the right to fight the enemy (vs 14). We fight against principalities and powers and not people (vs 12) , instead loving them toward the light of God’s love and His inner and inter-relational peace (vs 15). Faith keeps us strong against the lies of Satan our enemy (vs 16). In our own minds we are confident of our salvation and rightness in Christ (vs 17) further supported by our knowledge and growth in God’s Word (vs 17), our ultimate instrument of victory. The eight verse text is packed full of encouragement and empowerment. Get to know it and stand to fight against the enemy for family, friends, colleagues and strangers, that they might be saved from living death and called to life today.

Action Plan:

lots of love birds1. Learn the weapons of your warfare (use Ephesians 6).

2. Grow as God leads you, in truth and righteousness.

3. Walk in peace toward whomever you encounter.

4. Allow God to grow your faith. In all things acknowledge Him and He will ensure your path is straight.

5. Be wary of that which seeks to challenge your confidence in your salvation. The enemy likes to attack our minds to shake our assurance. (Mind = Soul = Emotions+ Intellect+Will)

6. Read the Bible. Learn scripture. Prepare to use it against the enemy.

7. Don’t go in presumption, but rather prepare and trust God’s call.

Remember, it is the Truth that sets people free.

Go: Wait on the LORD. Be ready to speak of the hope you have. Love. And walk in the measure of holiness the LORD has already given you. You need not look for the battle. When you are prepared, it will come to you. God bless and may ‘The glory of the LORD be your rear guard’. (Isaiah 58:8b)

awesome post sis … we are in a battle … have you ever heard this song called
LION of Judah by Jason Upton
This song throws light on Yeshua’s Second Coming as the King of this World. He is described as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah in Revelation 5:5 hinting at the majesty, power and glory He will have when he comes again.

Rev 5:5 has references to Gen 49:8-12 where Jacob’s blessings for Judah is that of power and leadership by calling him a lion’s cub.The Scepter shall not pass from Judah until HE comes to whom it belongs.

Another reference would be Isaiah 11. It is important that we keep reminding ourselves of these things for his coming is certain as sun rising in the east in its appointed time.
The Time is at hand, Yeshua is Coming Soon.

Indeed I do know the song Kelly. I’ve posted it on my facebook and google+ pages. The most inspiring song of its kind I’ve ever encountered.
Your references are great for look-up time… I’ll record and dig in later.
So glad you’ve subscribed to Soaring Post. God bless.
