FRAGRANT PRAISE
The way of the warrior is faith!
CHAPTER TWELVE

 

I keep hearing: The way of the warrior is FAITH!

I use to think it was something taught, but since I’ve stepped out In A kind of “ rebirth” in my purpose- I’ve realized that faith is letting all that I’ve run to for security and assurance go, and letting CHRIST be my security, assurance, refuge/fortress.

As God is building my FAITH, I feel the very walls and gates of my CITY (((HEART))) being strengthened.

But the Faithless will manifest:

anger, disunity, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, slander, gossip, selfishness, envy, striving, arrogance, soul tie connections, un-forgiveness,

disorder, breaks, which cause: narrow places,

wounds fester, splits, ravines,

gulf fixed gorges, low places, bruises, cracks,

fractured soul part (DID) dissociative identity disorder, punctures, splinters, cuts, holes, bruises, trauma, depression, and routines

of what we know how to do.

But if I’m healed- full of FAITH, restored, made whole I possess a fortress - that even others can run into and be safe!!

My walls ( salvation) are strong in God!

it’s a stronghold, a refuge, a fortress, rock solid, restored, built up, prayed up.

Jude 1:20

But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit

“It will pull evil strongholds down!”

Isaiah 60:18

Violence shall no longer be heard in your land, Neither wasting nor destruction within your borders; But you shall call your walls Salvation, And your gates Praise.

So, I’ve made these banners: watchman on the wall, the way of the warrior, arise, warrior, shield bearer to represent what I believe God is doing in this hour!! He’s building us up to receive many souls in this last great end-time harvest!!

                                                                                                             

He’s building ( creating) something!!

He’s building UP our Faith, our salvation! I see the heart of a Lion- wise/patient in hunting, kingly/ strong

In possessing the land.

Faith:

1 Corinthians 14:4

The one who speaks in a tongue builds up himself, but the one who prophecy builds up the church.

Salvation walls:

Isaiah 26:1 (ESV) In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: "We have a strong city; he sets “UP”

salvation as walls and bulwarks.

Walls-

Holman Bible

Zec 2:5

The declaration of the Lord: “I will be a wall of fire around it, and I will be the glory within it.

Ezekiel 14:21

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove back the sea with a strong east wind that turned it into dry land. So the waters were divided,

and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on their right and their left.

God says he would bring a division between soul and Spirit, joint and marrow-

God must divide before he builds up.

Phil 2:12

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Here’s another one on building up.

Jude 1:20

But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit.

What is God building?

God is building a fortress/ refuge, a tower, a city!

He wants to use our tongues, lips, mouth, necks, and throats to do it!

By faith through salvation, we are a strong, built-up city of God!

I will take my stand at my watchpost and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concerning my complaint.

Habbakk 2

Psalm 46:4

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.

As God processes us in cleaning with his sword we must be strong, flexible, and Bendable- no stiff necks:

Zechariah 9:13 Amplified Bible (AMP)

For I will bend Judah as My bow, I will fit the bow with Ephraim [as My arrow]. And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, And will make you [Israel] like the sword of a warrior.

A warrior's sword bears the tongue of a warrior.

Bearing the tongue of a warrior is like a strong, but flexible arrow willing to bend and curve when shot out of the bow.

Flexibility  is an important aspect of archery because the arrow needs to be in the correct position every time an archer goes to shoot.

Arrows must be strong & flexible at the same time.

His rivers/streams come forth from our hearts/mouths-

John 7:38

Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! The Scriptures declare, 'Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.

Luke 6:45

"The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

In the spirit we’re Running and Roaring like Eden River and in the natural we’re standing still with groaning in our warfare!

Here’s a scripture on necks like a tower:

Sos4:4

Your neck is like the tower of David, Built with rows of [glistening] stones, Whereon hangs a thousand shields, All of them shields of warriors.

Lips:

Hebrews 13:15

Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.

Isaiah 60:18

Violence shall no longer be heard in your land, Neither wasting nor destruction within your borders; But you shall call your walls Salvation, And your gates Praise.

So we see here that your very lips act as a gate.

Mouth/Tongue

I cried to Him with my mouth,

And He was extolled with my tongue

PSALM 66:17

Neck/Throat

Sos4:4

Your neck is like the tower of David, Built with rows of [glistening] stones, Whereon hangs a thousand shields, All of them shields of warriors.

Evil (( tombs)) Throats:

Your throat can be used as a womb or a tomb.

It’s your choice!!

Romans 3:13

Their throat is an open sepulcher; with their tongues, they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips.

Either rivers of living water flow forth from your gates ( lips) or poison.

Luke 8:27,28

Now when Jesus stepped out on land, He was met by a man from the city [of Gerasa] who was possessed by demons. For a long time, he had worn no clothes and was not living in a house, but among the tombs-

Seeing Jesus, he cried out [with a terrible voice from the depths of his throat] and fell before Him [in dread and terror], and shouted, “What business do we have [in common] with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment me [before the appointed time of judgment]

Throat:

Psalm 149:6

The exaltation of God is in their throat And a two-edged sword in their hand

Young’s literal translation

God’s building a city- the city is our heart!

On that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:

“We have a strong city;

He sets up walls and ramparts for security.

Isaiah 26:1

Hebrews 11:16

But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one.

Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them.

Satan is also in the construction business: hardening hearts, polluting waters, building a tower(s), throwing knives!

Genesis 11:3

And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had them for mortar.

4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

Proverbs 30:14

There is a generation whose teeth are like swords,

And whose fangs are like knives,

To devour the poor from off the earth,

And the needy from among men

Approaching God with Awe

Ecc 3:5

Guard your steps when you go to the house of God.

Draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong.

Do not be quick to speak, and do not be hasty in your heart to utter a word before God. After all, God is in heaven and you are on earth. So let your words be few.

 

As a dream comes through many cares,

so the speech of a fool comes with many words-

So even the dreams you dream tell a story of the treasures stored in your heart.

A warrior’s tongue is patient in the process to purpose!
