You are Called to Battle

 

You are called to battle

Called to be a soldier

Given an unction-a mantle;

In a spiritual warfare.

 

First, you must be humble;

Able to take instructions,

Living, giving good example,

Under divine direction.

 

Hide under God’s banner.

Stay away from God-mockers,

Discerning, spotting danger-

The cunning nature of Lucifer.

 

The way up is the way down.

Bow the knee at the cross.

Learn to cast down your crown.

This is a gain, not a loss.

 

Watch out for the predator

The enemy of your soul-

The wicked terminator,

Who wants to be in control.

 

Give no inch or room to him.

Beware of all his mind games.

Use the sword against him,

When he tempts you with fame.

 

Watch out for ’Me, Myself and I’-

The satanic trinity.

Hide under the Most High.

Bite not the bait of your enemy.

 

Give all glory to God.

Take the way of escape God gives.

Know that worship belongs to God,

In whom we move and live.

2 Corinthians 11

13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.

 

14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

 

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

! Submit to God, Resist the Devil

5          Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for ” God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

6          Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,

7          casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

8          Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

9          Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.1Pet5:5-9

 

12        Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.

13        No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1Cor10:12-13
