The Lord’s Army

“I may never march in the infantry, ride in the calvary, shoot the artillery; I may never zoom o’er the enemy, but I’m in the Lord’s army. I’m in the Lord’s army, I’m in the Lord’s army. I may never march in the infantry, ride in the calvary, shoot the artillery; I may never zoom o’er the enemy, but I’m in the Lord’s army.”

A friend brought so many memories to mind with this sweet song that we used to sing in Sunday School. Typically the teacher would use it to help us get our wiggles out or use it to help bring us back together.

Some tend to think this song was made for those who never served in the military and came second to serving in the military. When in reality – this song is just a beautiful reminder that if you’ve received Christ as your Lord and personal Savior then you too are in His army – first, before all else.

Calvary is so powerful in times of war. The Calvary ride to freedom establishes peace and relief. They cross heavy and harsh terrain. We lead from the place of prayer, worship, love, and overcome trials in our life because of Jesus Christ.

Artillery is used to attack the enemy – With spiritual Warfare, God’s artillery is used to break down strongholds. Absolutely nothing is beyond His power, authority, and grace. Nothing is impossible for God.

Victory is Christ’s and His alone – Soli Deo Gloria. We have been equipped for this fight. Put on the armor of God – Ephesians 6:10-20. Stand Firm in the Word of God, hold fast to the truth, and …

FIGHT IN THE LORD’S ARMY!

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak." Ephesians 6:10-20
“The Lord utters his voice before his army, for his camp is exceedingly great; he who executes his word is powerful. For the day of the Lord is great and very awesome; who can endure it?” Joel‬ ‭2:11
