Men of War - September 17th


30,000 Feet

In all things pertaining to the earthly realm, it is wise to see things from Father God's perspective as one who is "seated with Him in heavenly places."

-Begin with the Scriptures. Your mind will be renewed.
-Continually devote yourself to prayer. This is a two-way conversation with God. Speaking AND listening.
-Ask for wisdom and discernment as you look from His perspective. He will provide them.
-Engage fully with the Holy Spirit as He leads you. As a son or daughter, it is your right to be led by Him. (Romans 8:14)

And, remember, what I am writing about is a supernatural process. Don't limit it to your 5 senses. Submit your 5 senses unto the Lordship of Christ and let the Holy Spirit use them as needed. But, supernatural sight and hearing are what is needed when viewing from His perspective. Much will be understood as your fleshly viewpoint falls away and His comes forward with greater clarity.


A Fruitful Bride


Prophetic Voice

A prophetic voice often offends. Truth cuts across all that doesn't line up with it.

In sharing these things, we must pray for wisdom in HOW to share. Each word must be drenched in love and should pour out of a heart broken by God with compassion. A prophetic voice that is condescending, harsh and shrill rarely has a hearing.

The anointing on the words spoken carries the weight of the truth to the human experience and heart. A measured, clear and direct approach is best. Let the Holy Spirit magnify the words. We simply speak. Then, when offence comes, and it will, we can rest in Him knowing that truth is having it's perfect work.

Compromise will not win the day. Obedience will. Angry prophets do not affect change. Anointed ones do.



There is a call to the wild places that every man seems to hear. The natural man longs to fulfill that call by going deep into the woods or mountains (a favorite of mine), sailing in dangerous seas, space travel, fight clubs, sports or other activities. In and of themselves these may be worthy pursuits.

However, these won't satisfy the call to the wild places that the man hears. They are clever substitutes.

This call, deep within a man, has been placed there by God Himself. And, only God Himself can satisfy that longing that the call produces. When a man begins to pursue God, he comes face to face with the risen Christ and is forever changed. A longing for another country, to live on the other side of the veil of the natural world is implanted within him. Heaven becomes his home and he is restless until he arrives there.

Father God in His glorious grace gives that man a purpose to occupy him until he arrives in heavenly realms. He is given glimpes of the other side and brings the glory of the heavenly realms into the natural world. Supernatural, spiritual weapons are brought to bear that affect the natural world and demolish spiritual strongholds. Through these things, he begins to live, really live. A spartan, wartime mentality strips away the things of this world because his warrior status has no time for the childish games of little boys are are trapped in grown men's bodies.

Fellow warriors, unite, fight and live in Christ...together with our wives, children, church families, and other believers. This is the call to the wild and Father is calling you this moment. Let's do this...together.
