Day after day, I have written the burden of the Lord. Often, the words have been directed at leaders. The messages have targeted shallowness, compromise and hypocrisy. They have accused leaders of gross negligence in the face of Satan’s assault on the church and the nation.
This time the message is for faithful warriors of God. Something is burning within my soul. Everything within me cries IT IS TIME FOR A NEW BREED OF CHRISTIAN WARRIOR.
Evil will soon feel their wrath and power.
Who are these people and what do they look like? The Bible says God knows those who are His. He knows who has remained true. He knows who has been rejected for refusing to conform to the counterfeits. God made them misfits to fit into a special order.
Jehovah has reserved hidden wisdom for them. Psalm 25:14 says, “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant.” In this message I want to encourage you and fire you up for the secret work of Jesus in this hour.
A visit to the throne of God
You want to become a part of this new breed? You must begin with a visit to the throne of God. It is here…and only here, that you can be equipped for the amazing task ahead. Not only is this visit possible it is mandatory—it is scriptural.
Ephesians 2: 6 says “and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…”
What do you see from this vantage point? You see that Satan has as much chance against God as an amoeba has surviving on the surface of the sun. But what else do you see?
You see that all the vile railings of our culture are not—in any way—a threat to the purposes of the almighty. He knows the hollow arguments of the haters. He is not moved by the mental monopoly of fake news and leftist social media. He saw it all coming and prepared the response.
The Lord of the universe is not poor. He has pooled untold wealth to transfer it into the hands of trusted, proven, purified vessels whose only passion is to obey. Jesus saw the future and uttered an explosive prayer: PRAY THE LORD OF THE HARVEST TO SEND WORKERS INTO THE HARVEST.
Notice He did not say ministers, or celebrities. He said workers. Many want the titles, attention, and rewards…but they don’t want to do the work. A special core is rising that burns white hot with passion win lost souls and heal the sick. They are hidden now but soon they will shine like the sun.
Learning to ask for big and mighty things.
Those who are called to this new breed of spiritual warfare will ask and receive things that prior generations could not imagine. Simply put, we are talking about awesome things!
To become the askers, they need to be, they will be tested severely in order to come forth as gold. Their claims will not be elementary claims for personal pleasure but for massive changes in the culture. They will exploit demons, they will strip principalities of power and authority.
Learn the truth of the slingshot.
They will be hurt, wounded and brought to the brink of despair before their breakthrough. In their pain and agony, they will cry out why—why am I being pulled away from my promise? Why does each day take me further and further away from what you promised me?
God is deliberately building up the tension—the frustration—the fire to act…and at just the right moment, He will release you.
I don’t need to ask if you are a part of this new breed of warrior—nothing else explains you.
