In a vision last night I was shown a representation of an army associated with “royalty”. Each man walked in formation – shoulder to shoulder – was well equipped and well trained. This is not an ordinary army, no, but a New Covenant army. An army that has been redeemed by royal blood! (Eph. 1:7) They walk in step with the gospel, the Holy Spirit and with each other! They are focused! They do not entangle themselves with the nefarious affairs of others nor of this fallen world! Clearly, they are on an evangelistic mission! And clearly, they are appointed by, and are employed in service to the King of Kings: Jesus Christ.
And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 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. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. (2 Tim. 2:3-5)
And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown: but we an incorruptible (crown). I therefore so run, not as uncertainly: so fight I, not as one that beatheth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it unto subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be cast away. (1 Cor. 10:25-27)
Keep the Faith – let no one steal your crown. (Rev. 3:11)
