The Sword of the Spirit: The Sound of Many Waters
Chapter: The Desire of A Commander in Chief (Pages153-154)
The number one objective of a commander in chief is to serve and protect.
A true leader assures the people of the country who fight every day for the truth which has been prophesied from long ago that he will manage the situation very carefully, and with full justice.
The truth is that we are to rid the earth of those who wish to persecute, antagonize, ridicule, and hate those who are living a life of Christ. With the supreme authority and executive decision it is time for a call back to God. In order to execute this statute of doing away with or removing those who wish to bring harm or persecution, we must be mindful of what we see and hear.
Living in the spirit versus living in the flesh allows us to possess God’s divine senses. God hears all and sees all. God’s people make up the body of Jesus Christ. So, what God’s people hear and see is what Jesus Himself perceives and is well aware of.
Genesis 6:5-7 “The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, “I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth–men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air–for I am grieved that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
Now in regards to the words of Jesus, let us be sure to know what God will do in our modern day, with the eyes of His Son.
Luke 12:49-51 “I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed! Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No I tell you, but division.”
This scripture clearly outlines the baptism which Jesus was required to undergo first by His Father in order to be restored in divinity, after becoming a living sacrifice of sin in a man’s world. The heart of Christ was (is) always divine and without deceit. Jesus has been completely honest and upright with His heavenly Father, with which He Himself is One.
Revelation 1:12-18 “I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lamp stands, and among the lamp stands was someone “like a son of man,” dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice like the sound of many waters. In his right hand he held the seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance. When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. The he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the first and the last. I am the Living One; I was dead (murdered), and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.”
This section of scripture gives us a clear image of how Jesus himself does not come to play games…Because in the End, your faith is all that you have to hold onto…It is the One thing that can save you…Remember Jesus was dead and now He is alive. He comes knowing all that His Father has revealed to Him, having suffered many things…And understanding, of all things, especially the persecution of Christians in the world… He comes as the Son of God with the Almighty power of all the Angels of Heaven…
