The Act of War

When you are about to go into battle, the priest shall come forward and address the army. He shall say: “Hear, O Israel, today you are going into battle against your enemies. Do not be fainthearted or afraid; do not be terrified or give way to panic before them. For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory. Deuteronomy 20:2-4

As men and women of faith, we pray and plead for peace. But, I’m afraid there are times when peace can only be achieved through the brutality of war. As we continue to fight this war on terror, I realize many of you, my friends, have deployed or will deploy soon. With that understood, I want you to hear the words of the Scriptures and receive it’s blessing. If you are called, go and fight with all the might the Lord of Heaven has given you and may compassion rise from the ashes of this necessary violence. Make sure your Bible is packed in your ruck and make prayer as essential as eating. Know that we who are in the support role here in the States are faithfully behind you in our thoughts and prayers. May God be with you. SP228
