A warrior is assigned a job or given a purpose. Our first step to becoming a warrior is to be born again to a living hope in Christ Jesus. (1Peter 1:3). As a warrior, training comes by the renewing of the mind to adopt God’s purpose. (Romans 12:1-2) The proof of your faith is more precious than gold, tested by trials. Let these trials produce endurance (James 1: 4-8), so you may be lacking in nothing, and through trials may you persevere as you develop and prove your character (Romans 5:1-5).
A warrior ready to fulfill your purpose, fully armed with the full armor of God and the shield of faith.
A warrior full of discernment with the sword of truth in the other to cut asunder lies propagated by the enemy. Lies like, live and let live; evil has no place in our home, school, community, or churches. Lies from the courts, the separation of church and state, and the constitution doesn’t protect the unborn.
God is a God of love but God condemns the reprobate mind (Romans 1), marriage is between a man and a woman, God created two sexes, male and female, and so many more.
A warrior to speak loudly against evil. With one voice we must roar the TRUTH as God has given us.
Ecclesiastes 3:8 8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. Matthew 24:6-7 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. Our time is short and only the Truth will save another's soul. God has me here to fulflil a purpose, as His warrior and I must trust God to lead me in that purpose. Are you ready to be God's Warrior?
I wrote this today in response to a misconception about love. BE A WARRIOR, means speaking truth in love.
The Bible tells us how to love and what the fruit of the spirit of love is. It had nothing to do with sin. Love the sinner, hate the sin. Romans 12 tells us to renew our minds, don't let our minds fall into debauchery, the fruit of the spirit in Galatians 5: 22-25 vs. the world's view of love Galatians 5:19-21. You are to be led by the Holy Spirit, not be guided by empty philosophy, lies, or the deception propagated by the world's view of love. Yes, love with a discerning heart, a heart filled with the Holy Spirit, a heart full of wisdom ready to stand against deception, willing to STAND on the whole TRUTH. God is love and Holy, and the two stand in unison. God is a God of love, but God still condemns the reprobate mind (Romans 1), marriage is between a man and a woman, God created two sexes, male and female, and so many more. Tell your neighbor the Truth about God's love and His saving grace. The church age is coming to a close. True love is not letting your neighbor go to hell. I wrote this in response to this post which has an underlying misapplication of God's love. God offers a free gift of salvation but with the renewing of your heart and mind. It's an incorrect application of God's Word that stirred my heart. It is this type of wrong thinking that will send many to hell. How many souls will go to hell because we did not just correct wrong thinking, we did not speak God's Truth in love? Their acceptance or rejection is up to them but kowtowing to misapplication is a lie and will not lead to salvation. Be God's Warrior by putting on the whole armor of God, the helmet of salvation, and protect yourself with Truth, the breastplate of God's Truth, as you spread the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Keep with you the shield of faith and the sword of Truth that divides (Hebrews 4:12) men's hearts, separating them into wheat and tares.
BE GOD’s WARRIOR of TRUTH
A warrior? Back in the day,
but now I’m very tired,
and I’m afraid I have to say
my man-card’s now expired.
The only fight that I have left
is for my fading life,
to stay in earthly warp and weft,
to still support my wife
and the dogs, and yes, the cat
through what is to come,
and in this I may find that
I might yet walk among
those with whom I fought before,
another time, another war.
Write your poems, and every day prayer-warrior, that you are.
