Can you fight? By Elaine Davenport (Monday, May 14, 2007)

The bible tells us to fight the good fight of faith.

Don’t ignore this because as a believer, you are also a soldier. Soldiers fall in so many categories. There are: career soldiers, soldiers just passing through, officers, heroes, dishonorable discharges, medal winners, marines, Navy seals, Special Ops, Special Forces, soldiers who don’t want to be soldiers, Elite Forces and many more.

You’re going to have to decide what kind of soldier you are, are going to be because the enemy has set his troops in motion and they are moving against you right now as we speak.

We’re part of the FAITH FORCES and we not only have to work together but we’ve got to be ON GUARD AND ON WATCH like the Bible says.

My advice: Stay in the Word, Stay in Faith, Pray, Be on Guard and never forget that you have to fight. Never

EPHESIANS 6: 10-18

In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].

Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.

For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].

Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,

And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the [a]firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness [b]produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.(B)

Lift up over all the [covering] shield of [c]saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].

And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit [d]wields, which is the Word of God.

Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people).
