Enlisted in God's Army!

Christians are enlisted soldiers in the armies of the Lord, 2 Tim 2:3-4. As valiant soldiers we are led by the Holy Spirit and hold the Bible as our combat manual. Never skulk from the battle, Eph. 6:14; Acts 26:22. Stand firmly and do it again and again especially when you are despised, when men laugh, ridicule and scorn; for the company of Christ is always a place of blessing; the place where He fights for us as we fight for Him, 2 Cor. 10:4, 1 Pet. 4:14; Mt. 5:10,12; John 15:9, 20. It is only in the repetition of the Godly sanctified actions of infiltrating the enemies strongholds that our love for Christ lights the darkness of the despiser's ill lit dens, John 3:17-19; Eph. 5:6; . However, our love can grow dim and less excited if we do not exercise it in faith and prayer whether we are coming or going, Heb. 12:3, 13; 1 Tim. 4:8, 6:12; 2 Cor. 7:4-6, 12:3. Therefore, let us boldly raise the banner of love for Him who was vigorously excited to give us His love through the never-again needed-nor-repeated work of the Cross.

The world would have us run into the dark corners of their perceived victory but Christ would have us champion His ultimatums in the open darkness of their dens of iniquity, 2 Tim. 4:17; Titus 3:15; Acts 8:26 . The mind is is wicked thing when it takes upon itself to destroy that for which Christ died Gen. 6:5; Jer. 17:9. The mind of the wicked is enamored with the collection of a flock to swell its ranks so it attacks and taunts any that oppose it and welcomes all who will join, Ps. 22:16, 83:3; Lam. 3:14, 63; Prov. 1:11, 29:16. I say attack it and attack it again with the sword of the Spirit the living Word of God that it may be released from the clutches of Satan, the evil overlord who spawns and feeds its festering blight, 1 Pet. 2:9 .

The enlistments of the ranks of God's armies are always running and walking but never fainting, Is. 40:31; for it is the Lord God who upholds them in the fight and it is He that will uplift them in His victory, Ex. 23:27; Deut. 7:23. One day we will all glory in His splendor and beauty as He unfolds and unveils the timelessness of eternity, Ps. 27:4; Is. 28:5; 1 Cor. 15:29; 1 Pet.1:4 . It will be there where we live and we move in Him alone carrying out the work of our worship that the fruit of our labors will be born upon the wings of His Holy Angels!! Ps. 90:17

God Bless!!
