Christian Soldiers It’s Time to Fight Back

Evil has gone unchecked for way too long in this country and around the world. It’s time. Christian soldiers it’s time to fight back. If we don’t all will be lost. It’s not the Muslims we should fear. It’s not North Korea or Iran. It is the evil one who is waging war against the hearts of men and women, and winning the war. Step by step he is taking the entire world captive to perform every evil intention of their mind. To strip them of all morality and the sense of right and wrong. To lead them into every manner of perversion and wickedness. To give them the illusion that they can help themselves with the latest counseling of humanistic psychiatry and their taking of prescription drugs. Stand up Christian soldiers it’s time to fight back. Continue reading Christian Soldiers It’s Time to Fight Back

The Shield of Faith

Today’s article continues an eight week series on the armor of God. A very important part of being prepared spiritually for the “End Times” is being dressed in and utilizing the whole armor of God for Satan will be extremely powerful and even more deceptive because he knows that his time is short. The shield of faith is the next piece of armor to be put on by the Christian soldier. As the Christian soldier goes deep into enemy territory to rescue the perishing the devil will hurl a volley of flaming arrows to discourage you in your pursuit. Upon receiving one of his arrows, you may experience strong emotions of fear, emptiness, aloneness, and doubt that comes in an instant when you least expect it, and then your spirit cries out in anguish begging for someone to listen to your plight. These arrows are all the more destructive in power. They have the ability to pierce and seriously wound the soldier. When the piercing arrows of depression, anger, and fear are filling the air, we must learn to take refuge behind the shield of faith (see Proverbs 30:5).  As we come together as believers, we can link our faith-shields to ward off the devil’s darts.

A Tribute to Christian Soldiers

A Tribute to Christian SoldiersAs we approach Memorial Day indeed it is a time to honor our fallen soldiers in the many wars since the birth of this country, to help maintain peace at home. Well today, I would like to honor the Christian soldiers who have fought long and hard against the real enemy of our souls. They don’t carry machine guns or drive tanks, but they don the armor from heaven to stand firm against the wiles of the devil. They don’t seek glory of this world, but wage a secret war against the strongest adversary known to humanity. As the enemy roars like a lion he seeks to tear the Christian soldier apart by casting his flaming arrows of doubt, confusion, anxiety, depression, fear, and temptation to sin along with a multitude of other emotional and psychological problems. We salute the Christian soldier who has fought the good fight and has not buckled under the tremendous pressure from the enemy, but has stood his ground suited in the full armor of God. We pay special tribute to the Christian soldier who has not fallen prey to the many wiles of the devil, but has come off victoriously by responding to every wile with the knowledge that comes from God’s Holy Word. We salute the Christian soldier who has entered enemy territory to rescue the perishing by giving light to those who are in darkness, breaking their chains, and releasing them from captivity by proclaiming the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ. We salute those who have stood toe to toe with those who would malign the Gospel by wielding the sword of the Spirit in all of its glorious truth. Continue reading A Tribute to Christian Soldiers
