Discerning the Heart of a Good Godly Soldier

When we repent of our sin and rebellion against our God, accept the His plan of salvation through His sacrifice of His only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, and open our hearts to His Love, Word and Holy Spirit transforming power, we are free to do our part.  What does this mean; how does it look?  How do we discern the heart of a good godly soldier? 

Matthew 15:16-19 (AMP) 16 And He said, “Are you still so dull and unable to put things together? 17 Do you not understand that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and is eliminated? 18 But whatever word comes out of the mouth comes from the heart, and this is what defiles and dishonors the man. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts and plans, murders, adulteries, sexual immoralities, thefts, false testimonies, slanders, verbal abuse, irreverent speech, blaspheming.

Our God is not impressed with our own words or works in and of themselves. In the operation of our faith and its accompanying speech and works, our God is most interested in the condition of our hearts. It is possible to say and do “good” things from an evil heart, and miss heaven altogether:

Matthew 7:21-23 (KJV) 21 Not everyone that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.

The heart of a good godly soldier is a heart that believes our God is who He says He is, that He is willing and able to do what He says, and that He does it for ALL who diligently (purposefully and consistently) seek to learn and apply His character, nature, power, and authority, HIS WAY (Hebrews 11:6). Mark, chapter 4 provides analogies of the conditions of the human heart (ground), after hearing the Word of God (seed).

This heart is not awake to God; being unbelieving, disinterested, unenthusiastic, disapproving, lazy, indifferent, non-committed, unconcerned, and unresponsive.

Mark 4:34 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow, and it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.

Mark 4:15 These are they by the way side, where the word is sown, but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

The seed of the Word of God does not even enter this heart; this heart does not take the Person or Word of our God seriously. This is the heart that half hears God, a heart whose “love” is halted (stalled, in neutral) between the love of the world and God, because it wants His blessing and power without His disciplines, instructions, or guidance (Matthew 22:37).

This heart is awake to God to a measure, but has not fully embraced the Faith, Focus, Crucifixion, Resurrection Process. Therefore, it does not yield to the instruction of our God in an area (or areas).

Mark 4:56 Some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.

Mark 4:16-17 These are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended.

This heart lacks the proper nutrients (sincerity, respect for, revelation of, or faith in God) to maintain the seed of the Word of God until His Truth takes root. The spiritual stones of self will,fear, pride, and the like resist the instruction and/or convicting power of our God’s Word. Simply put, this heart is capable of producing and maintaining goodly fruit, but its unrepented attitudes, appetites, and lusts resist the instruction and/or convicting power of our God’s Word. This heart picks and chooses what it will allow to grow in it, rather than fully accepting and nurturing the seed of God’s Word.

This heart is awake to God and has sincere desire for God. However, it lets go of its faith under the pressures of life, OR after receiving a measure of God’s blessing, it fails to purposefully and consistently crucify flesh and honor God. This failure opens the door for satan to capture it in the web of the love of money (gain) and/or the lust for pleasure/comfort.

Mark 4:18-19 These are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

Mark 4:7 Some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

Have we discerned our heart can be good and godly in one area, but lukewarm, stony, or thorny in another? How does satan gain access to our hearts? We fail to (1) trust God with our cares and concerns while continuing to believe His promises, (2) exalt and trust in Him rather than our own gifts, abilities, or blessings and (3) make our relationship with Him our first priority.

Our failure to nurture the seed of our God’s Word with purposeful, consistent thanksgiving, right confessions, praise, honor, and obedience to Him, opens the door for the world and satan to penetrate our protective spiritual armor and distract us from our focus. Our focus should be trusting and pleasing God through His Word.

The good heart is a humble heart, that believes our God is God, that is He is able and willing to do all He has promised, AND that He will do it for all who purposefully and consistently believe!

Mark 4:20 These are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

Mark 4:8 Other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some, an hundred.

Faith, humility, and patience in the only True and Living God, for Whom it is impossible to lie is the combination that gets manifestation. This heart embraces the Word of God and nurtures what it hears with thanksgiving, right confessions, praise, honor, and obedience, until the Word produces the things hoped for, the things our God has promised (Hebrews 11:1; Hebrews 6:12). Such is the heart of the soldier of Jesus Christ. We may live our lives in joy and peace, knowing our God’s Love and power never fails, if we only believe.

(1) We must give our lives to God purposefully and consistently, as living sacrifices. He is looking for an open, obedient heart. He is looking for a “Do with me as You will” heart. Judge all things by His character, mind, will, power, and authority.

(2) Faith and fasting conquers and overcomes the worldly desires, appetites and lusts of our bodies, getting our souls (minds, wills, and emotions) under control, quieting them so that we can hear and do what our God’s Word and Holy Spirit says to us.

(3) Spending quiet time with God, away from the responsibilities of life and the cares of the world quiets our soul: our mind (thought lives), our will (decision-making abilities), and emotions (our feelings) so that we can hear and obey God.

(4) Praying in the Holy Spirit (in tongues and with understanding) builds our faith in God. We must ask the Holy Spirit to help us to pray and relax in His care and guidance (by faith). Our spirit man is our divine hook up to God, we are strengthened and built up in our inner most being by His Word and Presence. We must trust Him without fear; He keeps His promises.

Faith begins and builds on what we hear (on where the will of our God is known (Romans 10:17). When other voices (the other people, the noise of busyness, the distraction of technological devices …) fill our lives, we become more influenced by them than what our God has to say.

Our hearts (spirit) will only make wise decisions when we put our God, His Word/will, and His Holy Spirit first. We will enjoy peace when we embrace how much He loves us. 

Jesus Christ our Lord is the highest-ranking officer, second only to our Heavenly Father.

1 Corinthians 15:24-28 (NLT) 24 After that the end will come, when He (Jesus Christ) will turn the Kingdom over to God the Father, having destroyed every ruler and authority and power. 25 For Christ must reign until He humbles all His enemies beneath His feet. 26 And the last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For the Scriptures say, “God has put all things under His authority.” (Of course, when it says “all things are under His authority,” that does not include God Himself, who gave Christ His authority.) 28 Then, when all things are under His authority, the Son will put Himself under God’s authority, so that God, who gave His Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere.

Our Heavenly Father established Jesus Christ as His right-hand man (Hebrew 12:2). THERE IS NO REBELLION IN THE THIRD HEAVEN; our Sovereign God evicted satan and every other rebellious being (1 John 5:7; Luke 10:18). Though he is utterly cast out and evil, satan dare not further rebel against God, but he does all he can to keep us from the knowledge that we have victory over him and his rebellion (all evil belongs to satan).

We are the Body of Christ, charged to enforce Jesus’ completed work and defeat of satan and darkness; we are anointed and appointed to decree, declare, command, and demand that every knee bow and tongue confess His Lordship, TO THE GLORY OF OUR GOD, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER (Mark 16:17-18, John 14:12; Philippians 2:2-11). We must do so from a heart that purposely, consistently, and sincerely desires His will.

The Scriptures uses types, shadows, and symbols to explain the mind of our God. Let us consider analyzing the heart of spiritual mules (jackasses), goats, and wolves. We must understand darkness plants corrupt seed into unguarded hearts (Proverbs 4:23), to drain energy and overthrown interpersonal and intra-personal success on both the individual and corporate levels of ministry.

The mule heart is ignorantly complacent or smugly self-satisfied, which manifests as the unwillingness to commit or participate in anything. It is the sterile, fruitless offspring of the donkey and horse, it is equipped to run for God, but chooses to follow its own mind. Its nature is stubborn and unwilling to yield to truth, which manifests as the resistance to change or correction; they are unteachable, generally get along with the select few, and resists Truth steadfastly. They are lukewarm, being mostly motivated by the dangling carrot or cube of sugar (self-pleasure and accolades). (Sounds Pharisaic, doesn’t it?)

The goat heart struggles with pride or ungodly confidence and dependence upon one’s gifts and abilities, which manifests in extreme independence and relentless ambition. It has no respect or regard for God’s Word, His Holy Spirit, authority and delegated authorities. It selfishly butts against truth until unconscious, which manifests as arguing and complaining until its strength and resolve diminishes. This heart condition leads a reprobate thoughts, decisions, and behaviors, as satan removes it from its the path of destiny. In worst case scenario, this heart begins to work with satan to hinder or shipwreck others. It is self-deceived; refusing recognize its own fruit, it is in utter denial (Romans 1).

The wolf heart struggles with lawlessness. It is a sneaky chameleon, resisting the headship of our God, being god unto itself, which causes it not to respect nor trust anyone; it will bully relentlessly to get its way. It is a greedy, lustful heart that is never satisfied, which manifests in compromise. It is not willing to pay the price for what it wants, but uses others without remorse or conscience (Acts 20:29).

Jesus Christ is The Lion of Judah, our Fearless Champion (Revelation 5:5), and The Lamb, our Humble Servant slain before the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8). Our Heavenly Father’s Holy Spirit transforms our lives into that of a son of the only Living God, as we yield our lives (spirit, soul, and body) to Him. We do so by embracing the full Persons of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ AND by believing, thinking, speaking, and behaving in alignment with His Truth. We take on the heart of THE Good Godly Soldier! Hallelujah!

Hear the joy of our heart cry, “Thank You for making us one with Jesus Christ, with You and Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for the ability to walk with the sober estimation of who we are; we know it is You Who has made and are making us, and not we ourselves. Any good thing to be found in us, or said about us, is because of You alone. We give to You all the praise, honor, and glory!

Thank You for the ability to walk in Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for the ability to know Your Voice from any other; Hallelujah!” We align our confession with Your Truth declaring, “We have the heart of THE good, godly soldier, Jesus Christ, our Lord. He has made us enforcers of His completed work at Calvary. The will of our God be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” Hallelujah!

Father God, We love and trust You. Do all that is in Your heart, today and every day as You prepare the Body of Christ, for His return. We believe we receive even before and as we pray, because we pray according to Your will, in Jesus name and it is so!


Giving Love Never Fails!

1 Corinthians 13:8b (KJV) Charity never faileth!

Charity, or Giving Love never fails. This Truth is a key in the knowledge of our God. Our God is Love; He:

John 3:16-17(ICB) 16 “For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son. God gave His Son so that whoever believes in Him may not be lost, but have eternal life. 17 God did not send His Son into the world to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through Him.

Our God IS Giving Love and He loves us so much and so thoroughly that He planned our salvation, deliverance, and restoration BEFORE humanity fell to satan’s lies! His Sacrificial Lamb was slain in His heart and mind (Revelation 13:8), before He blew breathe into the body He made for Adam (male and female man; Genesis 5).

What must we do besides repent of sin and rebellion against our God and open our hearts and minds to Him to work change into our lives, by His Word and Holy Spirit? There is nothing else for us to do! Sounds simple; however, the crucifixion of flesh is not easy. Even so, our God’s grace (His Loving Help to be and do the impossible) comforts and guides our hearts, minds and spirits, until we reflect the glorious nature of our God.

Beloved watchmen, we must have faith in our God’s Love towards us.  His Love Delivers Us from Fear and Its Torment.

John 14:1; 6 (KJV) “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. Jesus said to him, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Jesus tells His listeners not to allow themselves to be disturbed or fearful. He acknowledges their trust in God, and asks them to trust in Him, the One sent by God. He lets them know that He is the expressed image, the walking talking revelation of our Heavenly Father, who is LOVE. He is saying watch me and reject all fear, and you will discover who our Heavenly Father is (His Love, character, mind, heart, will, Word, power, and authority). We also discover who we are because of The Christ.

The Love of our God Repels all Fear!

Throughout the Scripture, we hear God speaking by His Holy Spirit, telling His people to “Fear not.”

1 John 4:18 (CJB) There is no fear in love. On the contrary, love that has achieved its goal gets rid of fear, because fear has to do with punishment; the person who keeps fearing has not been brought to maturity in regard to love.

This translation gives us an understanding of this Scripture from a different angle than is often taught; it depicts Love as an “working force” with a goal, a purpose, and directive in its operation. Love’s goal is to drive out (cast out according to the King James Version) fear and its accompanying torment of the spirit, soul, and body.

Our God IS the Working Force of Love!
Our God IS LOVE! His desire is that we fully embrace Him for who He is.

Hebrew 11:6 (KJV) Without faith it is impossible to please Him (our God): for he that cometh to God must believe that HE is, and that HE is a rewarder of them that diligently seek HIM.

Our God IS LOVE (1 John 4:8) and SPIRIT (John 4:24). Our Heavenly Father’s Holy Spirit is the same Presence, the same Love that walked in the garden of Eden, for the purpose of communion with the first Adam (male and female man; Genesis 5:1), in the cool of the day (Genesis 3:8).

My personal experience with 1 John 4:18 and early teachings caused me to struggle against doubt and unbelief, as I felt I was failing to comprehend or understand the Love of God. I learned; however, that our God’s Love is His gift of Himself, needing only to be believed, embraced, and trusted.

Believe that our God, Who is Love Himself, Loves us!
Present day believers have the privilege of being saturated with our Heavenly Father’s Holy Spirit of LOVE!
We enjoy His indwelling Presence (1 Corinthians 3:16)
We are baptized with His Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11).
We are filled with His Holy Spirit (Acts 4:31).
We are baptized into Christ (the Love of God revealed) (Galatians 3:7).

Our God IS LOVE, and He loves us. Everything we will ever need is contained in Him. He is sovereign. He reins over all, in the heavens, the earth, the seas, and the underworld.

Why we should love and honor our God and follow His Christ.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the living narration, the expressed image of our Heavenly Father, in alignment with His Word (Scripture) and His Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was sent to us to defeat satan, sin, death, hell, and the grave; to lead us back to the path of our Heavenly Father’s righteousness, power, and authority; and reestablish the Truth about our Heavenly Father’s Love for humanity. We are His Beloved Offspring!

To every individual who sincerely desires to know our God, (our Heavenly Father, His Word (Jesus/Scripture), and His Holy Spirit), intimately, in a “working” relationship, meditate the following Scripture until the Truth of our God flows your heart and mind with Light:

John 14:21 (Amplified) The person who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who really loves Me; and whoever really loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him; I will make Myself real to him.

Honoring our God’s Word and following Jesus The Christ walks believers into revelation knowledge. It was so with our Apostle Peter (Matthew 16:16) and our God is not a respecter of person. Trusting God as we walk through the tests, trials, victories and celebrations in life allows Him to reveal Himself as our Provider, Protector, Leader, Nurturer, Comforter, Healer, and every good thing we need.

Our God IS The “Great I AM!”

When we embrace God’s Word (Romans 10:17), watch Jesus Christ (Hebrew 12:2), and trust our Heavenly Father’s Holy Spirit to lead, guide, protect, and provide for us (John 14:26; Romans 8:26-27), we discover how much and how powerful His Love is towards us and in our behalf. Our God is LOVE, the working force that give humanity life! All of darkness is as the noonday sun, (fully exposed) in the Light of our God’s Love, as revealed in Jesus Christ, our Savior, Lord, and soon coming King!

We thank You and appreciate You for who You are and all You have done for us. Thank You for pouring out the revelation knowledge of Your love upon Your people. Thank You for the power of Your Love. Thank You for the compassion that moves You to care for us so.

Open our eyes so that we see, even the more, what You accomplished for humanity through Jesus Christ, by Your Word and Holy Spirit. Open our eyes so we can see You, Love at work through and in Him on our behalf. Give us the grace to believe, embrace, and trust You; You are Love!

We pray as the Apostle Paul prayed; we fall to our knees before You, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. We offer up thanksgiving in prayer for your overcoming strength and wisdom. We are grateful that Your Word and Your Holy Spirit dwell in us richly. We thank You that the knowledge of Your love for us fills our lives.

Thank You that our hearts, minds, and lives find their roots in Your Love. More and more every day as we rely on Your Word and Your Holy Spirit, we are able to discern the width, the length, the height, and the depth of Your Love for us. We comprehend Your Love for us, and therefore fear is far from us.

Thank You for the faith to embrace all You are. Breathe on us again, open the eyes of our understanding even the more, change us more and more until we look like Your offspring, then use us Lord, so that others will come know Your Love.

Pour out Your Spirit, the Spirit of Love upon Your people, all over the world. Move us by Your great compassion to heal, deliver, and set others free. Speak Father; instruct us Lord God, we are listening. LEAD US BY YOUR LOVE.

In Jesus name we pray. Thank You.


Beloved watchmen, we must consider the times and seasons and recognize that our God is gathering His own,

Ephesians 1:10-12 (AMPC) 10 He (our God) planned for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, both things in heaven and things on the earth. 11 In Him we also were made God’s heritage (portion) and we obtained an inheritance; for we had been foreordained (chosen and appointed beforehand) in accordance with His purpose, Who works out everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His own will, 12 So that we who first hoped in Christ, who first put our confidence in Him, have been destined and appointed to live for the praise of His glory!

People of God, we must test every spirit, knowing who our Christ is.

1 John 4:1-3 (AMP) 4 Beloved, do not believe every spirit speaking through a self-proclaimed prophet; instead test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets and teachers have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know and recognize the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges and confesses the fact that Jesus Christ has actually come in the flesh (as a man) is from God (God is its source); 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus (acknowledging that He has come in the flesh, but would deny any of the Son’s true nature) is not of God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and is now already in the world.

Watchmen all over the world, our God has made plain the identifying character of the antichrist, or the spirit of the one who opposes, or is contrary to the True Christ.  This spirit is capable of skillfully twisting truths from Scripture, while camouflaging thoughts and intents of the heart for doing so, that are not of God.  The end result of the work of the antichrist, false prophet and teacher is bondage, theft, murder, and destruction.  It will offer influence, wealth, and riches, while taking the very mind, heart, and life of those they deceive.

We must ask the Holy Spirit to manifest discerning of spirits; discerning equips and empowers us to know the antichrist spirit at work.  This spirit will deny that our God sent Himself in the form of His Word and rescued humanity completely.  It does not want humanity to know that it is as Jesus The Christ declared, “IT IS FINISHED!”  The antichrist spirit seeks to hide the Truth that Jesus The Christ IS the Word of God made human. 

Acknowledging this Truth solidifies our Heavenly Father’s total expungement of all debts for sin, in the hearts and minds of believers.  Acknowledging this Truth solidifies the Truth that the blood price for humanity’s rebellion against God was paid by the blameless, shed blood and lifeless body of Jesus The Christ on Calvary’s cross.  Acknowledging this Truth solidifies the Truth that Jesus’s suffering, death, burial, resurrection and ascension are true and full of the power, that our God has fully redeemed humanity from satan’s clutches and he has no legal right or claim to us, that he has no recourse but to bow to our God’s Word, spoken in faith, and sealed with the signet ring of Jesus name!

The antichrist spirit and all of darkness is most fearful of humanity’s faith in Jesus The Christ and our God, because IT IS OUR GOD-GIVEN FAITH THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD, WHICH INCLUDES THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS (1 John 5:4)!


Throughout the Old Testament, we find types, shadows, and prophecies of the manifestation of The Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, who was to come.  A few types are:

Adam was a type of Christ:

Romans 5:14 Amplified Bible (AMP) Yet death ruled over mankind from Adam to Moses (the Lawgiver), even over those who had not sinned as Adam did. Adam is a type of Him (Christ) who was to come, but in reverse—Adam brought destruction, Christ brought salvation.

Isaac was a type of Jesus The Christ:

Hebrews 11:17-19 (AMP) 17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested (that is, as the testing of his faith was still in progress), offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises of God, was ready to sacrifice his only son of promise; 18 to whom it was said, “Through Isaac your descendants shall be called.” 19 For he considered it reasonable to believe that God was able to raise Isaac even from among the dead. (Indeed, in the sense that he was prepared to sacrifice Isaac in obedience to God) Abraham did receive him back from the dead, figuratively speaking.

The Passover was a type of Christ:

1 Corinthians 5:7 (AMPC) Purge (clean out) the old leaven that you may be fresh (new) dough, still uncontaminated [as you are], for Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed.

Throughout the New Testament there are markers that identify the Spirit of our God’s Christ at work:

 The Christ has complete faith in and is obedient to our Heavenly Father:

John 8:28-29 (AMP) 28 So Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man on the cross, you will know then without any doubt that I am He, and that I do nothing on My own authority, but I say these things just as My Father taught Me. 29 And He who sent Me is always with Me; He has not left Me alone, because I always do what pleases Him.”

The Christ is anointed to do good and advocates for the freedom of others:

Acts 10:38 (AMP) How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with great power; and He went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, because God was with Him.

The Christ is the Life-giver:

John 10:9-11 (CJB)  I am the gate; if someone enters through Me, he will be safe and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, life in its fullest measure. 11 “I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

False Prophets, Backslidden Believers and the Lack of Love

Matthew 24:11-13 (AMP) 11 Many false prophets will appear and mislead many. 12 Because lawlessness is increased, the love of most people will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures and bears up under suffering to the end, will be saved.

One grand indicator that the antichrist spirit is at work is the lack of genuine, godly love.  How do we know when True Love is at work?

 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a International Children’s Bible (ICB)

Love is patient and kind.

Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud.

Love is not rude, is not selfish, and does not become angry easily.

Love does not remember wrongs done against it.

Love takes no pleasure in evil, but rejoices over the truth.

Love patiently accepts all things.

It always trusts, always hopes, and always continues strong.

Love never ends.

Remember, people of God, our God IS Love; He and His Word and Holy Spirit are ONE, They never contradict Themselves (1 John 4:8; 1 John 5:7).  He, by His own volition, binds Himself to and operates in alignment with His Word (Hebrews 6:17-20). Even in that, He is Sovereign and the Only Righteous Judge, capable of overriding His Word, with the strategies and exceptions for the greater good (i.e. He allowed the shedding of blood of animals to cover the sins of humanity; He then allowed the death and shedding of the blood of His Only Begotten Son to settle the sin, satan, and evil matter completely and finally).  Our God IS God; we need only agree wholeheartedly with Him! HIS TRUTH MUST COME TO PASS! Our God’s Word does not return to Him void and non-productive (Isaiah 55:11).


Matthew 7:15-17 (NIV) 15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.

 Our God teaches us to identify the nature of all spirits by the fruit they bear.  Let us examine our own lives to discover all areas that we have not made Jesus The Christ Lord.  Let us diligently and consistently confront, bind, and cast out all spirits that oppose our God’s nature, character, will, way, authority, and power.  Let us follow the example of our Standard, Jesus The Christ.

Watchmen, we must test every spirit, knowing who our Christ is.

Watchmen, Do not Fear the Shaking!

Fellow servants of our God, I sit here thinking about the recent event in Hawaii.  I found it very interesting that while in prayer (prior to this event), our Heavenly Father’s Holy Spirit made a deliberate point to speak to every evil eternal, declaring every wicked plan and device sent against God’s people terminated and returned to its sender.  I spoke to the evil eternals in every place, and to all spirits moving contrary to the mind and will of our God.  The situation in Hawaii was foreknown by our God, and the work of a demonically influenced human; satan had a plan.  Our God waylaid and exposed it; now we know the human alert system works (Romans 8:28-29)!


Watchmen all over the world, we must understand eternals are all spirits who were originally created to enjoy eternal life (an everlasting connection to our God): (1) Humans are eternal spirit beings created for eternal connection to our God; (2) The angelic host was created to be eternally connected to God (including Lucifer, until iniquity was found in his heart (Isaiah 14:11-15; Ezekiel 28:12-19); he rebelled and took one-third of the angelic host with him (Revelation 12:4).

Watchmen, we must understand, satan and his wicked spirit cohorts are already dead (eternally separated from our God).   Human life was infected and afflicted through satan’s deception and sin; if we do not repent of sin, renounce darkness, and sincerely embrace God’s work in and through Jesus The Christ as our own, we suffer the similar fate (eternal separation from God, Who IS Life, which IS eternal death and damnation). It is our job to separate humanity from the power of satan, through decree, declaration, and intercession, from our place of anointing in Jesus The Christ!


All eternals, whether good or evil, are subject to our God.  He has already declared His heart, mind and will; His Word shall not return to Him void and unfulfilled:

Hebrews 12:26-28 (TLB) 26 When He spoke from Mount Sinai His voice shook the earth, but, “Next time,” He says, “I will not only shake the earth but the heavens too.”  27 By this He means that He will sift out everything without solid foundations so that only unshakable things will be left.  28 Since we have a Kingdom nothing can destroy, let us please God by serving Him with thankful hearts and with holy fear and awe.

Beloved watchmen, this incident serves as a warning to every fence-riding Christian, all over the world!  It is also serves as a warning as those who are rejecting the true Gospel of Jesus The Christ!  Our God, His Holy Spirit and the bride are crying,

“Give your life to Jesus The Christ, today.  Commit fully so that your

name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”

Watchmen, when a human spirit is born again in Christ with understanding, death is no longer frightening, nor is it an immobilizing threat; he is the spirit usher that takes us from this third-dimension life, into the very presence of our Beloved Father and His Christ.  Fear not death; do not fear those who want to kill the body, they can do no more after that; fear our God who has the authority and power to kill the body and cast us into hell eternal (Luke 12:4-5).  Continue to work the works of a watchman of the Most-High God; do not fear the shaking.

Watchmen all over the world, allow the Holy Spirit who roots the heart and mind of our God and His Christ in us, to go deeper.  Let the Holy Spirit (who roots His faith in our hearts) connect His faith in our hearts.  Let the Holy Spirit (who roots His Love in our hearts) connect His Love in our hearts.  Let the Holy Spirit who roots in grace in hearts and lives, connect His grace in our hearts and lives.  Let us stand together trusting our God to keep us and His promises!

Watchmen, reject all fear of the unknown; do not be moved by what you see, hear, feel, think… contrary to what our God has declared.  Understand that our God explained all that is to come in His Word (the Scripture); He spoke His mind and revealed His heart, authority, and power in Jesus The Christ.  Reject fear because it is the spirit of false evidence appearing realsatan is an untrustworthy governor and the father of lies.  Reject the threats and empty promises; reject the suspicions! Our God has already spoken His mind, heart, and will; no one and nothing can usurp His authority and Truth!

Trust Him to keep us and His promises!


Watchmen all over the world, reject all fear, but the reverent respect our God deserves! Continue to look for His hand moving in the spirit and in the land of the living.  Continue to listen for His mind, and will!  Continue to decree and declare what you see and hear with His heart, as instructed and empowered by His Holy Spirit. 

Watchmen, do not fear the shaking!

Remember Who Your Heavenly Father and His Christ are!

Remember who He has made us and remember His promises!

Psalm 91 (AMPC)

 1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most-High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty, Whose power no foe can withstand.  2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I confidently trust!

For then He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.  4 Then He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

5 You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. 8 Only a spectator shall you be (yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High) as you witness the reward of the wicked.

9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the-Most High your dwelling place, 10 There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent. 11 For He will give His angels especial charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways of obedience and service.  12 They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. 13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot.

14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name (has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness; trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never).

15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.  16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.


Watchmen, do not fear the shaking! Stay on your post!

 Even so, come Lord Jesus!  We trust You Heavenly Father!

In Jesus name, we pray.  Amen and amen!

Good Soldiers Agree with Their God Prayer

Beloved Heavenly Father,

We, Your watchmen, Your soldiers of the Gospel of Jesus The Christ, love You. We trust and agree with You. Thank You for revealing Yourself to us, as You revealed Yourself to our ancestors in the faith. We boldly declare You are our Shepherd; we shall not be in want of anything that is good for us. You make us lie down in green pastures; You lead us beside quiet waters; You restore our souls. Our minds, wills, and emotions are completely Yours and safe from the cunning of all the forces of evil.

Thank You for guiding us in Your way, which is always right, true, and pure. You do so because of who You are. You are Faithful, Righteous, Holy, Love, Peace…; You are everything good and perfect. Though we walk through times of trouble, when things around us seem so dark and people so distant, Your Love, and light never leave us; You delight in orchestrating our steps. You make our feet as hind’s feet; You keep us from stumbling, and have given us the love, grace, mercy and privilege of repentance and restoration, if we do.  

Thank You Father, for making us unafraid of satan’s threats of loss or death; we know anything we allow to die, according to Your will, for Your cause and purpose will always bring us a great harvest.  We know we are dead to sin and the world and alive in Jesus The Christ; thank You for Your mercy and grace to remain clean, alive, and provided for in Him.  We thank You for Your comfort, protection, and guidance, even in the presence of those who seek to do us harm. We agree with Your Word declaring,

“No weapon formed against us shall be able to prosper; our God and His righteous promises, His Word working in and for us, transforming and conforming us, is our Guard and Keeper!”

Beloved Father, Your Word declares to heaven, earth, the waters, and the underworld that we have Your approval and protection. We have access and privilege to Your power and authority because of Jesus The Christ, backed by Your Holy Spirit and heavenly host.  We gratefully agree with You. Because You have revealed and thoroughly convinced us of these Truth, we stand boldly to declare to every conjured, unclean influence and entity,

The Spirit of our God is upon us. He has anointed us, from head to toe, inside and out; our hearts are full of praise for Him alone. His goodness, love, and mercy are our front and rear Guards. His angels keep us, and work to bring His Word to pass in our lives. When our God speaks nothing and no one in creation can oppose Him. He has already spoken, “We are more than conquerors in His Christ!” Therefore, we submit to His Lordship, and in the authority and power, vested in His wonderful name, we command you to flee! It is so!

Father, forgive us for agreeing with evil, foolishness, cunning, and deception rather than with Your Word. We lift our voices as one, and from across the nations, send Your Word to root up every unclean contrary thing in the hearts, minds, and lives of Your people. We speak healing to every conscience seared by deception, fear, and pain. From across the nations and with one voice, we Your Watchmen speak to the enemy of our souls, declaring,

We command you to loose God’s people; Jesus THE Christ died for the entire world and all humanity.  Remove your blinders; gather your yokes and burdens; pack up all of your wicked, deceitful trappings NOW! We bind all fleshy and demonic cohorts and cast every wicked, conjured spirit into the abyss to await your judgment. We speak to the hearts of those held captive and command them to walk free. We release their ministering angels to connect with them and guide them back to our Heavenly Father, in Jesus name! 

We ask, Heavenly Father, that You fill every heart afresh with Your Holy Spirit; thank You for leaving no place of the enemy to enter or return. Thank You for ministering Your Word, Your Truth, Life, and Light to Your people, and all over the world, in every place and every culture and system of the world, we are growing stedfast in the knowledge of Who You are, through Your Scripture, Jesus The Christ, and Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for building our faith through Them and this is the time that all know You.  Bring us all to the valley of decision and help us to choose Life in Jesus The Christ. 

We thank You, Father, for repairing all damage suffered in the lives of Your people, restoring us after every faith fight. Thank You for the authority to demand and command the restoration of everything that was stolen seven‐fold; the thief is caught!

Beloved Father, we thank You for breathing on every suppressed and oppressed gift that lie dormant during and because of the struggle. All whom You set free are free indeed; convert our thinking, speaking and doing all things most completely, oh God, our God, to your way of thinking, speaking, and doing all things.  Help us to be mindfully do all things to and for Your Glory alone.  You alone provide the heart and ability to save the lost; may we give You all the glory You are due!

Blessed Father, we, Your watchmen from all over the world, thank You in advance because we know the things we have asked and declared are Your will, and they SHALL come to pass.

In Jesus name we pray, and it is so! AMEN and AMEN!

Good Soldiers Agree with Their God (Part II)

2 Timothy 2:1-4 (AMP) 2 So you, my son, be strong (constantly strengthened) and empowered in the grace that is to be found only in Christ Jesus. 2 The things (the doctrine, the precepts, the admonitions, the sum of my ministry) which you have heard me teach in the presence of many witnesses, entrust as a treasure to reliable and faithful men who will also be capable and qualified to teach others. 3 Take with me your share of hardship (passing through the difficulties which you are called to endure), like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No soldier in active service gets entangled in the ordinary business affairs of civilian life; he avoids them so that he may please the one who enlisted him to serve.


(1) We know the only way satan can do ANYTHING in the earth, and in the lives of humanity, is if we allow him to use us to “think,” “believe” and “act” in word, thought and deed, in agreement with what he suggests. Therefore, we press on in our God’s Spirit and Truth, as we examine OUR OWN LIVES, repenting and renouncing all connection to darkness.

2 Corinthians 4:2 (MSG) Since God has so generously let us in on what He is doing, we’re not about to throw up our hands and walk off the job just because we run into occasional hard times. We refuse to wear masks and play games. We don’t maneuver and manipulate behind the scenes. And we don’t twist God’s Word to suit ourselves. Rather, we keep everything we do and say out in the open, the whole truth on display, so that those who want to can see and judge for themselves in the presence of God.

(2) We trust and embrace our God’s grace (His Loving help by His precious Holy Spirit), as we recognize His conviction and promptings. We are naked and unashamed before Him, as He protects, teaches, and walks us through healing and deliverance.

John 16:13 (AMP) When He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth (full and complete truth). For He will not speak on His own initiative, but He will speak whatever He hears from the Father, the message regarding the Son, and He will disclose to you what is to come in the future.

The Holy Spirit works with us, through every situation and circumstance (seemingly good or bad) to transform and conform our lives into the image of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God (Romans 8:28-29).

(3) We are sensitive to the mind of our God towards us; therefore, we are conscious of what we choose to believe and root up all beliefs that oppose God’s Word.

Jeremiah 29:11‐12 (NLT) 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen.

We know our character is formed by through our heartfelt beliefs, and eventually manifest in our words and actions. Therefore, we guard our heart (belief systems) diligently; we study our God through His Word (Scripture/Jesus), with the guidance of His Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 2:15).

We are mindful to reject all and any influence (demonic or flesh) seeking to “project” or “transfer” evil thoughts or feelings, and anything contrary to the knowledge of our God, and what He says about us in Christ.

(4) We do not give satan access to our life, others’ lives, families, possessions, and situations by agreeing (in thought, word, or deed) with any evil, vain, and useless imagination that opposes the character, nature, Word (Scripture/Jesus) and Holy Spirit of our God. We examine every imagination or thought that enters our minds to determine its source. We examine every emotion/feeling (their cause, source, and effect) to determine its source. We are well able to discern our God, from flesh and demonic influence.

2 Corinthians 10:4‐6 (AMP) 4 The weapons of our warfare are not physical weapons of flesh and blood. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 5 We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the true knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ, 6 being ready to punish every act of disobedience, when your own obedience, as a church is complete.

We walk in the knowledge that we are born again in Christ, and Holy Spirit filled dwelling places for our God. We know we are made clean, protected, and perfected by the Word and power of our God; therefore, when wicked thoughts and evil foreboding enter our minds, we reject them (Proverbs 23:7a). Because we are thinking and behaving in agreement with our God, we are positioned to command darkness to do the same!


Matthew 5:28 (NLT) But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

We must respect the truth that the creative power of our heartfelt thoughts affects our lives, just as our spoken words and deeds affect the people, things and situations around us. WHY? Our thoughts are us talking to ourselves, and faith comes by hearing!

Thoughts, words, and deeds are uses of spiritual energy that loose good or evil in the world, and we will each give account for them (John 6:63). Think about it; have you ever had someone to look at, speak to, or touch you and you felt violated or cautious. Sometimes the very presence of an individual can make you feel violated or cautious; it is because of the spiritual energy flowing through or surrounding them. We must study our God, His Word (Scripture/Jesus) and His Holy Spirit so we can discern His Presence from flesh and/or demonic influence.


Our God equipped humanity with five senses (sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell), to enjoy the natural resources of the earth. These natural senses are used to identify and determine what we believe about life around us. They are the gateways to our spirit/belief system. Through these gates, we identify and worship God in our environment. Know that satan tries to enter theses gates through temptation, deception, ungodly desire, lust, and greed. Guard what you choose to do and believe about what you see, touch, taste, hear and smell (Proverbs 4:23). Do not agree with the enemy of our souls.


We allow our thoughts to linger only on those things that meet our God’s approval.

Philippians 4:8 (KJV) Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Watchmen all over the world, as our God’s soldiers, we know the devil tries to access our five senses in hopes of luring us away from walking in our God’s Truth and holiness, and into his fear and deception. We do not agree with him; we agree with our God! Do not attack people; attack the devil attached!

(1) SIGHT: We do not allow our eyes to linger on anything that does not please God. We immediately cast down wicked and useless imaginations when you encounter anything that opposes the mind, will, and heart of God. Reject anything that does not promote the righteousness of God in our lives.

(2) HEARING: We do not allow our ears to continue to listen to anything that does not please or promote the righteousness of our God. We close the door to the intrusion of wicked thoughts and suggestions from the enemy.

(3) TASTE: We do not allow anything in your mouth before prayer and blessing. If the Holy Spirit quickens us not to eat, we will not eat. If we think we have digested something not good for us, we ask our God to purge our system completely. We believe His promise that if we drink anything poisonous it will not hurt us (Mark 16:18).

(4) TOUCH: We do not allow ourselves to touch (physically through our bodies; mentally through thought; taste through imagination; spiritually through lingering too long with or on) anything that does not please and promote the righteousness of our God. We ask the Holy Spirit to quicken us when we sense a change in our peace.

(5) SMELL: We do not linger in any smell or odor without asking God to judge what we smell. Smells can take us to places of temptation. We ask the wind of the Holy Spirit to blow through to completely remove every smell or odor sent from darkness.

 As our God’s watchmen and soldiers, we utilize the authority and power vested in the name Jesus The Christ to bind all demonic activity and cast them and it out into the abyss to await instruction or judgment from the Most-High God, our Heavenly Father.  When confronted by demonic or fleshy influence, we declare, “Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess Jesus Christ is Lord!”  We as our God’s watchmen and soldiers bind all contrary spirits; we declare, “All demonic and fleshy assignments and maneuvering is terminated in the region of our faith and grace, and we place you under arrest by the Holy Spirit. Pack all your tools and spells and go NOW! Angelic host oversee their exile the abyss with you to await our God’s instruction or judgment. In authority and power of Jesus name!”


We are HIS Watchmen and Soldiers for HIS Cause!

We are not here to play church!

We are not here to pretend that the devil and his kingdom does not exist!

We ARE here to declare Jesus The Christ is Lord of all!

We ARE here to work the works of the kingdom of our God!

We are our God’s ordained force in the earth, that must be reckoned with!


The Kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of

our God and His Christ,

and He shall reign forever and ever more!







The Declarations of a Soldier of the Cross

Once again, I sense our God calling His watchmen into greater knowledge, understanding, wisdom, power, and authority, by His grace and anointing. We know the importance of measuring all things by our God’s Word (Scripture/Jesus), character, nature, knowledge, understanding, wisdom, power and authority, as He takes us into His “deeper” things by His Holy Spirit:

1 Corinthians 2:910 (KJV) As it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

Psalm 25:14 (AMP) The secret of the wise counsel of the Lord is for those who fear Him, and He will let them know His covenant and reveal to them (through His Word) its deep, inner meaning.


2 Corinthians 2:11b (KJV) For we are not ignorant of his devices.

We all know darkness comes immediately to snatch our God’s Truth and revelation knowledge from our hearts:

Mark 4:15 (KJV) These are they by the way side, where the Word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the Word that was sown in their hearts.

The prayer for us all: Father, thank You for preparing our hearts with Your Love and power; thank You for giving us the capacity (spirit, soul, and body) to rightly discern all that belongs to You, and fully embrace all that You place in our hearts. All fear and doubt are rooted up and rebuked, as we stand to disconnect the souls of Your people from the torment, conditioning, and activity of satan and his darkness in our lives. We declare to the four winds, “The Church of Jesus Christ is rising up out of the ashes, as the refining fire of Your Holy Spirit sweeps the nations. We are fighting the good fight of faith and the multitudes are being rescued from the grips of darkness. It is so, we believe and receive in the name of our Savior, the Lord, King, and Messiah Jesus Christ.”


We know our God is omniscient. We know nothing our enemy thinks or tries to do escapes the knowledge of our God (Job 1:68). We know Jesus Christ has fully restored the knowledge, understanding, wisdom, power, authority of heaven to all that choose to believe. He shows us how to expose, dominate, and put the enemy in his place (under our feet in Him; Luke 20:43), arrested and cast into the abyss to await our God’s instruction or judgment; Luke 8:31). We have the grace and anointing to control the working of our enemy, and we purpose in our hearts to embrace our God’s Word, apply all to our lives, and fight the Good fight of faith. We agree with our God!


We are fighting in the best kind of fight, the fight that is already won. We simply have to enforce what our Conqueror, Jesus Christ has already declared. We are His ambassadors; darkness must honor us as if we are Christ because He is alive in us and we demand his obedience according to our God’s Word, dumanis power, and authority! WE KNOW HOW TO CONFRONT THE ENEMY WITH OUR GOD’S TRUTH; AS JESUS SAID, “IT IS WRITTEN!”

Our enemy, satan, knows the Word of our God is ABSOLUTE AND ULTIMATE TRUTH! When we agree with our God’s Word, our enemies must bow their knees and submit to His Sovereignty! Therefore:

(1) We agree that the God of All (our Heavenly Father, His Word(Scripture/Jesus), and His Holy Spirit) are sovereign over all.

(2) We agree that our God made humanity in His image and likeness of our God; He equipped us with the capacity to carry all His attributes (glory) and wield His Word backed by His power in the earth, through Jesus The Christ, His Anointed and Appointed Head of the Church and Lord of all.

(3) We agree that the sinless blood of Jesus paid the debt of sin for ALL humanity and satan/darkness/evil has no legal claim to any human in Jesus name! We are anointed and appointed in Christ to separate him and his works from God’s people.

(4) We agree that we have been deputized, authorized, and empowered to wield heaven’s Truth and Power, in the name of Jesus!

(5) We agree that whether he wage a frontal or sneak attack, causing us to stumble or even fall, our God has provided confession, godly repentance, and restoration; therefore, we need never stay out of the fight for long; we ARE more than conquerors in and through Christ Jesus!

(6) We agree that satan and darkness is completely defeated by Jesus The Christ on every hand and they must obey the Word of God, spoken from our hearts in faith. PERIOD! Hallelujah!

(7) We agree that the season of the return of Jesus Christ is upon us, and darkness, in futile desperation, has turned up the heat, BUT the fire of our God is greater and ALL CONSUMING! Hallelujah!


We, Your Watchmen, delight in You.  We are so grateful to be called Your own.  Thank You for the gift of repentance when we fall short of Your glory.  Thank You for Your grace, Your Loving help to be and do the impossible, working with us, maturing us from faith to faith and glory to glory. 

Father, we choose to agree with Your Word.  You are the only True and Righteous Judge.  You are our Sovereign Creator.  You are our Heavenly Father, the Source of all things good in our lives; we know You know what is best for us. 

We stand saying, “Do all that is in Your heart, today and every day.  Leave no stone unturned.  We trust You as You will and work Your will into our lives.  We know You will perfect Your work in us as You prepare us to meet Jesus. We take a bold stand with Your Spirit and the Bride and say, “Even so, come Lord Jesus!”  Father, do all that is in Your hearts.  We command our eyes to see and ears to hear You moving in the land of the living.  Our hearts are that of trusting children.  We await You.

Thank You for the wisdom, authority, and strength to continue to agree with You and one another; we know this faith fight is won.  We say, “Hallelujah, Thine the glory!  Be glorified in us, Your children.  We love You.”

In Jesus name, we pray.  Amen and amen!
