Come Ye Children of God, Put on Your Armor and Take Your Stance.

“Call ye all nations for the Lord Almighty shall wreak havoc upon you. The Spirit of the Lord shall flee as the birds scatter in a moment’s time. Let not your leaders lead you astray for His kingdom shall rule.

Come ye children of God, put on your armor and take your stance. Blasphemy abounds throughout the earth and the wrath of God is about to be poured out.

Ye O’ nations who look to your strength will find no strength in your weapons of war. Go in strength of the Lord for it is by His strength and direction that the wars are won.

The war upon My people shall bring heartache and sorrow. Repent O’ nations for the Lord shall speak against you. Repent O’ nations for you have no power where power is not given.

Take up your swords O’ faithful ones for your God is behind you. It is He who holds the swords in your right hands. His power will lead you into battle.

Rest not ye who claim sovereignty for it is not there. Nations upon nations will go by the wayside for your faith is in your power, not Mine.

Repent all ye nations who claim My land, for My wrath will come against you. My people shall rise and shout with glee, for the King has risen and will let no others claim His place.

No gods shall harvest what is Mine, no gods can dispel the wrath ahead. Let not your voices be heard from the mountain tops for I shall destroy the mountain.

Come all ye faithful ones for the Lord your God shall armor you for battle. You are the Kings warriors and let not fear fill your hearts. The battle is won, walk in victory for your destiny has been won.”

By the Holy Spirit 9-20-06

Holding onto the Shield of Faith

images[3]

In Ephesians 6 God tells us to put on the Full Armor of God. He has given us the tools to fight the enemy of God.  One of those tools is the Shield of Faith.

“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” Eph. 6:16

The Lord, through His prophets, have been warning us that we are facing terrible times ahead. We shake our head in wonder now at the things that are taking place in our society and the world and wonder what is going to happen. Do we focus on the senseless slaughtering from ISIS, the attempt to destroy the sanctity of marriage through the homosexual agenda, the slaughtering of millions of unborn children, attacks against Israel, or Ebola? Although these are important do they strike a note of fear in us? Do they consume our thoughts?

Our focus is to be on God! He is calling us to repentance. He is wanting to hear our heartfelt prayers and our praise and worship. We are not to focus on the world or the events that are happening in the world. We are to look beyond and above the world to eternity. Our eyes are to be on Him not the events of the world that can leave us shaking in fear.

We are to cling to God through His Son Jesus Christ through our faith in Him. We pray without ceasing and in addition to the other pieces of armor we take hold of that piece, the shield of faith, and hold fast!

Gary D. Kinnaman, in his book, “Winning your Spiritual Battles” discusses the various pieces of God’s full armor and gives an account of what each Biblically means and how we can be protected. Mr. Kinnaman states that in the New Testament there are four different shades of meaning of faith.

        1. Saving Faith – We trust that Christ saves us from sin and the consequences thereof. Ro. 10:9, Ro. 4:3

        2. Faith to Receive – Faith in our daily trust in God for His provision and help.Heb. 11:6

        3. Power faith, gift faith, miracle working faith. – Faith in a general sense – faith to be saved and faith to walk with God. 1Cor.12:9, Gal. 5:22-23, 1Cor. 12:7-11,  1Cor.12-14, Heb. 11:6

        4. Enduring faith – Faith that does not quit. It is the persistent, resilient belief that God’s Word is true, over and against every problem, wrong thought, or demon. Endurance is active faith, deflecting persistently the fiery attacks of Satan.

So how do we endure? One day at a time! In 1Peter 1:3-9, “Through faith {you} are shielded by God’s power.” (verse 5) “The shield of faith is God’s power and presence protecting and energizing us in spiritual warfare.”

“Faith in the sense of perseverance shields all the other armor. Truth must persevere to prevail. Righteousness must persevere to prevail. We must persevere in peace-making in order to prevail.”

In these troubling times God is calling us to persevere. We must have enduring faith if we are going to “run the race” and receive the prize. Grab your shield of faith and hang on tight, it’s only going to get worse.

“Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.” Rev. 2:10

A prayer for Holding up the Shield of Faith:

“Heavenly Father and mighty God, shield me with Your power as I trust in You. The flaming arrows of the enemy have burned my soul. Heal the pain inside, and give me the strength to resist.

I am committed to enduring to the end of this trial, regardless of how long it lasts. I am not a victim. I am a victor, more than a conqueror through Christ.

My faith, Lord, is in You. I renounce my own abilities, and I confess that unless Jesus builds up my life, everything I do is in vain. Only when I trust You completely am I completely protected from the fiery darts of the wicked one. I hide myself in the fire of Your presence. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
