THE PLAN OF CHRISTIAN WARFARE

 

Here is the plan for Christian Warfare from the Bible,
the most powerful War Book on earth.




1. Christian War is directed by God:

Ecclesiastes 3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Psalms 68:1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

Psalms 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

2. Christian War is not because we love it but
   
    because Satan and the wicked love it:

Psalms 68:30 Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people that delight in war.

Psalms 120:6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.

Deuteronomy 20:10 When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it.
11 And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee.
12 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:
13 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:

3. Christian War is ultimately won by Jesus Christ
   
    and his warriors:

Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Psalms 140:7 O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.

1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

4. Christian War is continual, has been for about
   
    6000 years, and will be with us for a long time:

This section still coming--

5. Christian War is not against physical flesh
   
    but against spiritual powers, both human and devilish:

Proverbs 28:4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.

2 Corinthians 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

1 John 2:14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

Revelation 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

6. Christian War is not fun-- War is dangerous and demanding:

Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

2 Timothy 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

7. Christian War is good for the soul and the
   
    Lord's Church:

Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

2 Corinthians 7:11 For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

Philippians 1:29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.

8. Christian War is under one Captain-- Jesus Christ:

Hebrews 2:10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Deuteronomy 1:30 The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;

Nahum 1:7 The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

BE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE FACTS BEFORE YOU NAIL THE ENEMY

I think it is hard to imagine the pain of soul this man felt over many years, believing he was right, yet being the village fool. We must NEVER turn spiritual warfare into brutality.

Exodus 23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

I have many stories sent to me about Fundamental church preachers, and some Pentecostal preachers, who have brashly blasted the sheep. The most terrifying part is this-- In almost every case the preachers made no effort later to heal.

These preachers are demon possessed animals who are sent into the midst of the flock to wound and maim the sheep. They must be run off, and physical force is even called for in some cases. When the sheep, especially children, cannot be defended by conventional in-church methods, the strong warriors of the church need to take the preacher out back and thrash him.

I marvel that some godly man in Capital City Baptist in Austin, Texas, did not take a bull whip to the Thompson boys for nearly killing the Mexican boy. Instead, all over America, demon possessed preachers are passing a petition around to try to get the Thompson boys set free from prison. This is no different from the jerk women long ago who begged for Al Capone and the Birdman of Alcatraz to be set free.

Isaiah 5:22-23 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

These preachers with their petition are worse than drunks, for being sober, they would mock the near murder of a young boy and seek to justify their Baptist buddies.

Somehow, in the end of the Church Age there are thousands of idiots who believe we Bible believers have diplomatic immunity when we play the fool. It is no wonder the media and the press pick these accounts up and stuff them down our throats. I also believe that Fundamentalism as we once knew it does not exist any longer. It must be left behind with the dead works of the Reformed Movement and the Roman Catholic Church.

I will go further-- I believe many Fundamental church pastors are agents provocateur sent in by the New Age, One Worlders, and organized witchcraft to destroy and wound the sheep by making the sheep hate the Lord's Church. This is why we need to move the true Church to homes where it is much easier to catch these evil men.

Again, please be very careful to do your research before you deal with wolves. We must never be guilty of attacking the innocent.

9. Christian War must never be generated by
   
    any authority but the King James Bible:

Psalms 119:139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.

2 Corinthians 6:7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

9. Christian War is glorious, it brings joy, and
   
    it destroys our enemies:

Psalms 144:1 Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
2 My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.

Psalms 59:10 The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.

Revelation 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

Psalms 18:40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

2 Timothy 4:18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

10. Christian War is driven by love and hate:

Psalms 139:21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

Luke 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, -- The enemy we destroy is the enemy of our Lord and Savoir, Jesus Christ-- God's enemies.

==============

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
