The army of God, God’s army, is on the move. Series of articles that train the army of God to do battle against the powers of darkness through prayer and spiritual warfare.
The Army of God
God wants his children – the army of God – to prepare for war and do battle against the kingdom of darkness.
Army of God – God’s calling is His enabling
“…I raised you up for this very purpose that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” Romans 9:17.
Wilma’s mother, Mrs Dorothy Hopkins, had a deep desire to transform her life and the lives of others through prayer. Mrs Hopkins went to be with Jesus, September 1991. These words were found in her writings, “There is nothing that the lukewarm church needs more today, than believers who are so filled with the Holy Spirit that they are truly `on fire’ for God. Fire will go out unless I do three things; 1) keep the draft open, 2) keep the ashes cleaned out, 3) put on more fuel. Spiritually: I have a fire of my own, Luke 3:16 says, “He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire“. I am to keep the draft open by keeping the prayer windows open toward heaven. I am to keep the ashes out by not depending on past experiences. Then I must add on fuel by spending time in His word.”
The desire of Wilma’s mother has become her desire that through this material there will come a fresh wind of the spirit which will set ablaze our lives with a jealous love to transform our lives and the lives of others through prayer.
The Lord is gathering together an army right across the world, to combat the enemy’s army.
However, in this war, we know the outcome. The victory has been won!
“I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church AND THE GATES OF HADES WILL NOT OVERCOME IT.” Matthew 16:18.
As the song says:
The gates of hell shall not prevail against the army of the Lord.
As we march along, we sing a song, of the One Who set us free.
As we use God’s Word like a two-edged sword, against the enemy.
Emmanuel! We are marching in Your Name.
Emmanuel! The Lamb that was slain.
Emmanuel! Has risen again.
The gates of hell shall not prevail against His church – against a body of people moving in one accord with God.
Did you know that a flock of geese can fly 70% father than one goose flying by herself.
One goose flying by herself, or one gander by himself, will fly 70% slower than if flying with the tandem.
An individual bird is easily led off course, whereas the tandem reaches their destination, on course, as one unit.
Army of God – You may be strong in prayer, BUT have you learnt how to be part of an army or how to join the tandem?
God is saying that it is time we moved together to make 70% more progress. To be part of an army you have to lay down something of your personal privileges as an individual.
As an individual you are able to fire a gun when you want to, but when you are in an army no one is allowed to start a private war, until the Commander says so. Even then, everyone fires at the same time!
God is looking for a group of people today, who will give up their individuality and lock their vision with one accord in the Holy Spirit, to form an army!
In the following pages I trust through the study of God’s Word you’ll be better equipped to be part of God’s army:
