There is a lot of hate focused on one man by so many in places of power and business. I could not help but wonder why there aren’t a small number of people from a group that does not share the same degree of hate to destroy a single man’s career and life. After lying and cheating him out of a position, you think that would be enough. They then create an atmosphere of violence to discredit him further with the purpose even to have him arrested on false charges, and to demand even to silence him, possibly even with death, is beyond belief. What causes me to question is that there is not one righteous person to stand up in a group of 200 people to stand up and say no, this is enough. Image yourself in that group, and you knew that everything is wrong, what would you do? Scripture warns us of such an experience, “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” (1 Corinthians 15:33 NIV) 

The old saying is, “Birds of a feather flock together.” People tend to become more like those they associate with and do things. The behavior pattern is the same as in high school. The nerds, jocks, wise guys, musicians, and the in crowed all hung together in their little clicks. To be welcome in the group, you dressed and acted like the others in that group. The pattern of behavior continues even as adults. I recall a friend who adds a job on Wall Street, and I noticed they all wore that same blue London Fog Coat. I even joked, saying, “What is that your uniform?” Dressing alike is only the beginning of cooperative behavior.

The scripture tells us to avoid a particular type of association. “I do not sit with the deceitful, nor do I associate with hypocrites. I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.” (Psalm 26:4-5 NIV) If we ignore this simple suggestion, we can ruin our godly morals and ruin our Christian judgment very quickly. We have let our guard down to become like those immoral members. The members will often humiliate you if you do not conform to the group’s standard. We can experience deception if we’re not careful like Eve in the Garden. The serpent had her think it was good, and it would not hurt her, but he fooled her. Often this is the very same strategy used to get us to comply with the group. Perhaps you are in a position where kickbacks and brides are the rules of the day or doing drugs, sex with minors, and you watch others doing it, and you fall into the trap. It’s so much harder to resist the temptation to sin when those around you are already doing it. Now there is no way out. The group knows that you are a witness to their behavior, and they have witnessed yours.  

In these times, we need to resist temptation by calling on Jesus Christ to grant us the strength to overcome temptation and remove ourselves from people committing those sins. It is better to avoid trying to be the square peg in a round hole, in the long run, thinking you’re going to reshape the group. Should you not comply, you will only suffer further humiliation. It is far better to pray for them and be friendly to them but not part of them. Since if they are to have a change of heart, it is from your ability to void living the group’s sinful life. 

It’s so much harder to resist the temptation to sin when those around you are already doing it. You’re the round peg in a square hole in those instances, so why try to fit in where you’re not supposed to? A Christian Warrior knows it is better not to associate with the enemy; in doing so, you become a traitor to the Lord. Hence if not one of 200 individuals does not stand up for righteousness, then the only conclusion is they are all corrupt.

“Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer.” (2 Timothy 2:3-4 NIV)

Today many churches of various denominations emphasize the prosperity message. The doctrine teaches a joyful, comfortable lifestyle of wealth if you give your life over to Jesus Christ. However, true warriors in the army of God know they are committing to going into harm’s way for the Gospel and the righteous cause. Tt teaches and perhaps pay the ultimate price for the ideal.

We must understand that God’s mission for us is to be engaged on the battlefield against the evil in this world. It is a difficult battle because we must resist our selfish nature. Yet, it is easy because we live by the new nature that Christ provides. Hence we may suffer persecution as mighty warriors worthy of the Kingdom.

The apostles were warriors; this is the response they gave after the Sanhedrin had them flogged. “The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.”  (Act 5:41) Christian warriors are always prepared to lay down their lives; in doing so, they find it; this is a comfort and a peace that the world cannot give. It does not mean we will be free of problems, but a warrior faces each one without complaint, knowing that the solution is at hand. 

In closing, it means when you are a born-again Christian; you are behind enemy lines in the middle of the battle, so you must have on your armor and are ready to fight. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

The critical element of a Christian warrior’s mindset is no matter what rank, position, or career, is how the warrior deals with the idea of death and their behavior at the moment of death. It does not matter the degree of education, intelligence, and eloquence the warrior may have; if you lose composure on the brink of extinction and die in an unfaithful manner, all your previous good works and belief will all be in vain.

Like nonbelievers, today’s Christians put greater emphasis on living here on earth with a notion of a long life, with little care of living with Christ. Since the idea of living with Christ focuses on our earthly presents, it shadows over our future home. No one will have eternal life on earth until Jesus Christ returns, and the Kingdom of God will be here on earth. Each generation wants to believe that the Lord is coming in their lifetime. Their spirit desires that they are alive to see Jesus arrive. Hence, the deep concern for being healthy. The importance of health and long life focuses on the self and is a form of idolatry.

The Christian Warriors differ in their mindset. They focus on being prepared to die with strength and dignity. Complaining and crying is not an option. It would be an embarrassment. A warrior understands that life at any moment may end. Also, one may need to die so that others may live, a firefighter running into a burning building, a police officer in an emergency, and citizens saving someone from drowning. Christian Warriors are ready to die every day, and it affects their lives as a result.

When we think, today may be our last. Hopefully, we will have made beautiful memories for those we leave behind. The last memory we want our loved ones to have is also how we died. A Christian Warrior dies as he did every day, not complaining, thanking the Lord for the trials and tribulation for they build strength, courage, and endurance for the peace that comes after that final journey. When we die with courage, we set the tone and example of how those left behind should live and die, with the Lord’s Grace.

I have a question for all Christians. What would you say if someone put a gun to your head and said? “Are you ready to meet Jesus.” Well, if your answer in any way rejects Jesus than you made a big mistake because Jesus the King of kings said this. “Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it.” (Luke 17:33 NIV) So I ask you are you a coward or a warrior for Jesus Christ willing to die for him because that is what it means to follow Jesus. You see you cannot fool God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit by thinking I’ll reject Jesus at gunpoint then when I get away ask Jesus to forgive me. I got some bad news for you. It won’t work. 

The Lord has called me to gather the warriors to him. Those who have already put on the armor of God or those getting ready to put it on. (Ephesians 6:10-18) If you don’t know Jesus or reject him, I suggest you ask God to draw you to him. The Lord is seeking warriors for the end time battle against the forces of evil. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12 NIV) This call is not for a new church or seeking donation I am just an old warrior with orders to share with you.

So are you a soft half-hearted Christian or one filled with courage that comes from the Holy Spirit. The U.S Marines have a battle cry, and it is “Oorah!”  We Christian Warriors have ours as well, and it is “Desu Vult!” “God’s Will!” I ask that you join me in a battle against the forces led by Satan. It is Desu Vult that we participate in the fight. Become a friend of the Lord & Doc Ministry on Facebook and start receiving your orders.
