A FEARLESS WARRIOR
In this end-time harvest, as we go out into battle against Satan and his principalities, the soldiers in God’s army must be fearless. They must have faith and confidence in God and know that He is with them, has delivered them from Satan’s power, and will deliver them from all their enemies. There is no place in battle for the weak and cowardly.
God commanded Moses before they went out into battle to instruct the priest to say to the men:
Hear, Oh Israel, you draw near this day to battle against your enemies; let not your (minds and) hearts faint; fear not, and do not tremble, or be terrified (and in dread) because of them. For the Lord your God is He Who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. (Deuteronomy 20:3-4, TAB)
The officers were to speak further to the people and say:
What man is fearful and fainthearted? Let him return to his house, lest (because of him) his brethren’s (mind and) heart faint as does his own. (Deuteronomy 20:8, TAB)
God is going to have a people who are strong, bold, fearless, and invincible! In the battles God’s army is facing today, it is better for those who are fainthearted, cowardly, fearful, or unbelieving should not go to battle because their fearfulness will affect others and weaken the army.
The Midianites and the Amalekites had cruelly oppressed Israel for seven years. They finally came against God’s people with an army of soldiers and camels too great to number. God raised up a man named Gideon to lead the Israelites to victory. He told Gideon, “Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man” (Judges 6:16). Gideon’s fearlessness was not in his own strength, but it was based upon his faith that God was with him and would give him the victory.
Before he went out into battle, God told Gideon: “Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead…” (Judges 7:3): Of the thirty-three thousand who were with Gideon, twenty two thousand were fearful and returned home. But there were ten thousand who were not afraid to go into battle. God later reduced the army to three hundred men and used them to defeat their enemies which were too great to number.
In this end-time harvest, God is looking for men and women who will march fearlessly out into battle to take the spoils of victory. You can be one of those God will use in these closing hours of time before Christ’s return to fulfill His will and bring in a harvest of souls
Make this declaration:
I will be used of God in this end time. I will march fearlessly out into battle to take the spoils of victory
