Eph 6:13-17 Wherefore take unto you the whole Armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

'You are more than a conqueror.  You belong to me. I know that storms will rise. They are created for a reason, listen for my voice.  I have not left you. You must tell Satan he is a liar, you must. He will flee. You have but to ask, and I will supply.  Have faith in Me. "

My weary soldiers:

It's January, and already the enemy is on his job trying God's people.  We must stand and refuse to allow him to push us around like he did last year. How many times are we going to allow the Devil to rob us of our finances, and we take it without fighting back?  How many times are we going to allow the devil to come into our home and rob us of our children through drugs and alcohol, and we take it without fighting back?  How many times are we going to allow the devil to come into our home and place sickness and disease upon us, and you take it without fighting back?  How many times are we going to allow him to cause strife and division, and we take it without fighting back?  How many times are we going to allow the enemy steal the affection of our spouse and give it to another, and we don't fight back?  

Old Soldiers, why is this happening day after day in our Christian homes?

Why? I will tell you why, because we don't recognize that the enemy is a highly trained and skilled warrior whose only purpose is to come into our homes to "steal, kill and destroy" everything we allow him to touch. We need to recognize that satan and his evil forces hate us with a passion and they are "hell bent" on destroying us and all that pertains to us. 

We need to change our attitude. For too long our attitude have been, to be "wise as serpents, but harmless as doves." Jesus is wise to all the tricks of the devil.  He was harmless as a dove to all the poor lost souls who had been taken captive by satan and had been beaten down all their lives in and through his control over them. However,  Jesus WAS NOT "harmless as a dove" when it came to confronting and combating satan and his forces! Was He a harmless dove when He chased the moneychangers out of the temple? NO! Jesus was then, and is now a heavenly warrior who knew how to fight His enemy with "brute force"  by using the Word of God (the Sword of the Spirit) and won every time.

It is time that we learned to be more like Jesus. It is time we develop a warrior spirit and go on the attack, instead of allowing the enemy to attack us until we are overcome and taken captive The weapons of our warfare ARE NOT carnal (powerless, earthly), but POWERFUL to the pulling down of strongholds.  2 Cor 10:4  Take the shield of Faith which is able to quench all the fiery darts of the enemy. Eph 6:16

Submit yourself to God, resist the Devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7

I am sick and tired of what the devil is doing to me and my family.. I am even more outraged as see what he is doing to my extended family, and the church.  I asked the Lord to give me a "Warrior Spirit" to fight against everything the enemy represents, to compel me to win the battle! I asked the Lord to show me all the spiritual weapons at my disposal, and how to use all of them effectively to destroy the enemy! This is my prayer for all the members of the Body of Christ.  We must stop allowing the enemy to come in and overcome us and our family! We must stop allowing satan to take away our health and happiness, and stop allowing satan to rob you of all that makes life enjoyable.  

Pick up your spiritual weapons and fight like the mighty servant God called you to be. You are powerful in and through the Holy Ghost which is living within you. You are mighty, and can pull down of strongholds of the enemy in your life. You are fearsome, and satan is afraid of  you when you know who you are in Christ.  When you begin to speak the Word of God, like Jesus did, it will put the enemy on the run and destroy the works of your enemy!

Get angry at the enemy.  Learn to HATE him! Learn to FIGHT him with all that the Lord has given you, and you will see that you are no longer the victim, but a VICTOR!  The enemy will begin to hate to see you get up in the morning, because of Who resides within you.  Get up each day and get   your marching orders from the Lord.  Then go forth in the power and strength of God Almighty, and you will win every battle that you enter.

I pray that this will set you and your family free from the shackles of the enemy. I pray that when you get up in the morning the enemy will run from you.  I pray that when you wake each day satan kingdom will say, "Oh no, they're awake. What are they going to do to us today? 

No longer are you weary, but might in my name.  Awake My Church and FIGHT!


I am a soldier in the army of my God.  The Lord Jesus Christ is my commanding officer.  The Holy Bible is my code of conduct.  Faith, prayer, and the Word are my weapons of warfare.  I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity, and tested by fire.  I am a volunteer in this army, and I am enlisted for eternity.  

I will either retire in this army at the rapture or die in this army; but I will not get out, sell out, be talked out, or pushed out.  I am faithful, reliable, capable, and dependable.  If my God needs me, I am there.  If He needs me in the Sunday school, to teach the children, work with the youth, help adults or just sit and learn.  He can use me because I am there!  I am a soldier.  I am not a baby.  I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, pumped up, picked up or pepped up.  I am a soldier.  No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me.  I am a soldier.  I am not a wimp.  I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name, and building His kingdom!

No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy or give me handouts. I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for, or catered to.  I am committed. I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around.  I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside.  I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.  

When Jesus called me into this army, I had nothing.  If I end up with nothing, I will still come out ahead.  I will win.  My God has and will continue to supply all of my need.  I am more than a conqueror.  I will always triumph.  

I can do all things through Christ.  Devils cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me. Weather cannot weary me.  Sickness cannot stop me. Battles cannot beat me.  Money cannot buy me.  Governments cannot silence me, and hell cannot handle me.  I am a soldier.  

Even death cannot destroy me, for when my commander calls me from this battlefield; He will promote me to Captain and then allow me to rule with Him. I am a soldier in the army, and I'm marching claiming victory.  I  will not give up.  I will not turn around.  I am a soldier, marching heaven bound.

Here I stand!  Will you stand with me?  Guess what?  If you've accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior and been baptized for the remission of your sins, you're already enlisted!

 Question is which part of the service are you in?  

1. Active Duty: Serving the Lord faithfully, daily, and on duty 24-7?  

2. Reserve status: Serving only when called upon: Sundays and Holidays?  

3. Guard status: Backing up the Active Duty group?  or  

4. AWOL! Absent WithOut the Lord?  

THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Keep looking up to God and Know He is truly and always looking down at you!!!





Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and
that she didn't know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time.
It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.

Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled

Three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. 

Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot, and ground coffee beans

in the third pot. He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned

and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. After twenty minutes he turned off the burners.
He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl.

He pulled the eggs out and placed them a bowl. He then

ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup. Turning to her he asked.

 "Daughter, what do you see? Potatoes, eggs, and coffee," she hastily replied.

"Look closer", he said, "and touch the potatoes."


She did and noted that they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it.
After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.


Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face. 


"Father, what does this mean?" she asked.   He then explained that the potatoes,
the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity-- the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently.
The potato went in strong, hard, and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak.


The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water.
Then the inside of the egg became hard.
However, the ground coffee beans were unique. 
After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.


"Which are you," he asked his daughter.




"When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean? "  

Be blessed,
