Part One: Basic Character For Success in Conflict
The war is going to intensify in this season. The Lord of host is checking hearts to see who is ready for Him to teach their hands to war. It is a time of separation. Many will want to fight the dark powers and be the resistance but will be lacking the character needed. This war will be against incredible invisible evil. Deception and tyranny is well imputed in Canada with an agenda so far from all that is good and wholesome. What is good is looked at as harmful and what is harmful is seen as good. I am not at this time asked to bring forth plans and strategy in regards to this warfare. I am to disclose the conduct of the heart necessary to wrestle the father of lies. There has been too many casualties because of a zeal but a lack of wisdom. So what is God looking for in our hearts that can stand against the wiles of the devil? What are the conditions that must be in our lives and relationships to bind him and bring him down? Almost immediately we think about the armour of God found in Ephesians 6. This is NOT to be our our first preparation. God is not calling those who think they are armed into battle. God is looking for those in everyday life in the marketplace, in church and family, are functioning in His highest call. There is a condition of heart that is so loved by God that He will not send us to war without it because He knows we will fall. He desires all of us to be in this place. OK, I have kept you in suspense long enough.
