Interestingly many Christians today, God’s army, are sitting on sideline instead of their war cry to reach the lost world. Yes, God is calling His army to stand and fight for lost souls more than any time in history. Isaiah 42:13 said it best: Lord shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal of war shouting He shall prevail against enemy. Where is Christ’s body, their “war mode”, His spiritual army to stand against this darkness taking place? Yes, these days are full of evil, a spiritual war Zone? To win we must not surrender sitting in pews, it’s time to seek Gods assignments He called the body of Christ to accomplish. Hebrews 10:3 said: “the just shall live by faith; if anyone draws back My soul has no pleasure in him.” Yes, His body (Christians) is His conquerors causing entire armies to run. Instead, it seems Satan is doing a big job wearing us out, holding us back, but fights we can win.
If we stay seated in our comfortable pew we are failing to obey the Lord, thus we also fear the power of our enemy. Oppression starts fear, afraid to stand against evil instead of winning our spiritual and physicals battles. But, we have entered a new day, not going to enter we are in it. Lords is training and building up our anointing for spiritual warfare. I like the way Bible says it best: “Go in your strength, have I not sent you”. Plus Isaiah 54:14 says it this way: “You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear”, so why so many Christians hiding in building today?
Yes, we are in a new day and the Lord is setting us up to win the biggest battle of history, again “Go in your strength have I not sent you? Hey, WE WIN! Also important to remember it is not about numbers, more like Gideon who had 32,000 men, but God said to take 300. With God it’s not about numbers, it’s about doing it His way. Matthew 28:18 says it best: “All authority given Me in heaven and earth. Go make disciples of all nations, teaching them to observe all things I told you; I am with you always, even to end of.” Yes, Jesus Christ is the Head of Body (Christians) with all things under our feet. God’s Church is positioned to both handle bad situations with great help from heaven, We Win!
Yes, it is not always the devil we fight, so we need to be on guard for today’s blinded unbelievers headed for a place they will regard for eternity. It’s true be forgiving we can’t allow the spiritually blind to get us off course, not even for them. We focus on influencing not on being influenced. In fact God’s people will be accelerated during end days with encouragement. Isaiah 60:1-3 Arise shine for your light has come! Glory of Lord is on you. Darkness shall cover earth, deep darkness the people; Lord will arise over you, His glory seen on you. Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to your rising. V22 little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation. I, the Lord, will hasten it in its time.”
Among everything else during the end of age will be a restoration and anointing in Lords House of unity. Citywide unity of the Body of Christ restored. Malachi 3:1 says: “Behold, I send My messenger, He will prepare the way before Me. Lord you seek, Will suddenly come to His temple, In whom you delight. Behold, He is coming.” All Christi is in heaven will b manifested in His Church Body before He returns, thus requiring His governing authority present manifest the life of Christ, His anointing, intercession, priesthood and prophetic. Eph 4:5-6 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. God wants His body to step up and take their sword of Spirit and fight to win with no doubting, We Win!
