2 Timothy 2:4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer.

Are we not soldiers (2 Tim. 2:3-4) grafted into the Kingdom of God through what God promised Abraham (Gal. 3:29; Rom. 11:17)? Does not the God who instructed Moses (Ex. 14:1) whisper in your ear and commands you to shout it from the roof tops (Matt. 10:27)? Do our actions not move the Heart of our King (Is. 38:1-5)?
We are commanded to walk right in the eyes of the Lord by the Power of the Holy Spirit (Eph 5:8; Acts 1:8). The word of the Lord has come and He says to rise up from your slumber (Rom. 13:11) and extend the Kingdom of Heaven (Matt. 11:12). Prayer moves the heart of God (Matt. 7:7) and stirs up the heavens (2Tim. 1:6). We are warriors and fight against the powers of evil in the spiritual realm (Eph. 6:11-12) but we do not only war in times of defense. It is time to bring the fight to the enemy (Ps. 18:37). Again I say, rise up, go into your cities, work places, parks, stores and malls with confidence and speak the truth. Break out of your four walls, bring your Timothy’s, disciple and be the bright light in the territory of darkness. Be courageous because the Lord your God is with you, be courageous because in the middle of the destruction the grace of the Lord abounds. His hand is on you, so again I ask, Are you ready to rise…Soldier!
