Calling All Mighty Men
Calling Mighty Men, those who taken a back seat; those who say,”I am tired- tired of the fight therefore, I retire.”
Come and you will be rekindled.
Come and you will be recharged.
Come and you will be relaunched.
Come for a new visitation and unction for progression, propagation and promotion. (Luke19:37-44)
It’s time to be afire again for God..
It’s not time to retire.
Come and rekindle your desire for the things of God.
Throw away the denominational dry bones and traditions of men. (Matt7:7-13)
Ditch the cultural weights that so easily beset and derail.
Latch onto the pure and unadulterated word of God that is able to establish and build you up and give you an inheritance amongst the sanctified. (Acts20:32)
Go for the gold of God. Fight the good fight of faith. (1Tim6:12)
See, there is a lot of land remaining to be conquered. ( Josh1:2-3)
See there is much work to be done.
See, the fields are already white, ready for harvest. ( John9:34-35)
See the time is nigh for the former and latter rain in the first month. (Joel2:23)
See the clouds are full, ready to empty themselves as rain.( Eccle11:3)
What was sown in years shall now be reaped with joy. Those who went out weeping, bearing precious seeds, shall doubtless return, with a great harvest. (Ps126:6)
Calling Mighty men, like the mighty men of David. Men who knew their purpose, men who were professional, proficient and efficient- Men of timber and calibre; Men who were renowned; Men of Substance.
David’s Mighty Men
…11And after him was Shammah son of Agee the Hararite. When the Philistines had banded together near a field full of lentils, Israel’s troops fled from them. 12 But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field, defended it, and struck down the Philistines. So the LORD brought about a great victory.
David Destroys the Amalekites
…17And David struck them down from twilight until the evening of the next day. Not a man escaped, except four hundred young men who fled, riding off on camels. 18So David recovered everything the Amalekites had taken, including his two wives. 19Nothing was missing, young or old, son or daughter, or any of the plunder the Amalekites had taken. David brought everything back.…
Calling Mighty men, those playing dead. I will bring you out of your graves to fulfil vision. Because I am the resurrection and the life. And he who believes in Me, even though he dies, yet shall he live. Son of man, shall these bones live? (John11:25)
Son of man, it’s not over until I say so. When they write you off, I will write you in. For I will do a new thing in your life and many will see and fear and put their trust in Me. You shall be a reference point, a sign post of significance for posterity. You shall break all records and be a pace-setter in your generation, as I give you double for your trouble.
Calling mighty men, near and far. Come, no matter how far flung. Come, if it is well with you. There are others you can help. Your life can touch other men and raise them from the gutter of life.
Come, if you are short-changed. God will fight for you and you will hold your peace. Come, if you’re ostracised and you will be brought into a warm, godly and holy fold.
Come, and rise to a new dimension-your rightful place in the plan and purpose of God. Come and be honed to fulfil vision.
Paul refused to be derailed by adverse circumstances. He stood the test of time and finished well. You too can.
22 And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there,
23 except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me.
24 But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
Striving for a Crown
24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.
25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.
26 Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air.
27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
Nehemiah withstood fierce opposition and and adversity until he finished rebuilding the broken down wall of Jerusalem. You too can.
The Wall Completed
Nehemiah 6: Conspiracy Against Nehemiah
1 Now it happened when Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab, and the rest of our enemies heard that I had rebuilt the wall, and that there were no breaks left in it (though at that time I had not hung the doors in the gates),
2 that Sanballat and Geshem sent to me, saying, “Come, let us meet together among the villages in the plain of Ono.” But they thought to do me harm.
3 So I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and go down to you?”
4 But they sent me this message four times, and I answered them in the same manner.
15 So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of Elul, in fifty-two days.
