“BOOTS ON THE GROUND”; Are ground forces actually fighting in a war or conflict, rather than troops not engaged or Hundreds of coalition forces servicemen and women met aboard Camp Leatherneck, Helmand province, for a September 11 memorial service. During the service, Maj. Gen. John A. Toolan, commanding general of Regional Command Southwest and II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward) gave a speech reflecting on not only the lives lost 10-years before, but also on the heroes who have fought for the freedoms America stands for.individuals waiting on a sign. My friends, the sign is, prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes each day, and God needs workers.

The conflict begin over 6,000 years ago when Satan said in His heart ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north. ‘I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’ Is.14:13-14 (NASV)

And then the controversy begins between good and evil that lead to Michael and his angels [who] fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.

So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to !cid_796A23BDF5A64316886312FA16CB7FDD@CarolSmithPCthe earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Rev. 22:7-9 (NASV) but “All who are heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him” as we carry the good news of Christ soon coming, to a world where the god of this world and his angels now resides.

The soldier’s first article of faith is summed up nowhere more eloquently than in an 1865 letter from William Tecumseh Sherman to U.S. Grant: “I knew wherever I was that you thought of me, and if I got in a tight place you would come–if alive.”

This is the unwritten, unspoken but unbreakable contract of the battlefield: You will leave no one, dead or alive, in the hands of the enemy.” And there is only one way to go in and rescue a fallen comrade and that is “BOOTS ON THE GROUND”

JesusOnlyWayThere must be an consorted effort as one, to take it upon ourselves, to take the power Christ has given each of us through His Spirit and to move quickly because the “angels [are] standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth” waiting for God’s children to respond to the call of the Master to “go ye into all the world. “telling them “there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

And that name is Jesus Christ and He will be here soon. My friends, OUR BOOTS will not always be successful, and most of the time our labor will not be apparent in this life, But the promises of God tells us “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done.” [in carrying out His mandate, in telling the world of His saving grace and mercy.] Rev. 22:12 (NASV)

In addition, as the world’s redeemer, Christ was constantly confronted by Satan, that what He was trying to accomplish would fail. But He would not be discouraged. For He would forever stay focused on His mission, which was Calvary and our Salvation.

So therefore our responsibility  and duty as Christians as we enter into the last phase of this life’s history before Christ soon imagesreturn, is to make saving souls our No. one priority. My friends success can only be obtained with “BOOTS ON THE GROUND”.

Consistent with this, It will never be accomplished in front of our televisions or shopping at the Mall. As Christians we must have a passion engrossed with love, and A Heartfelt and concentrated zeal for saving souls as we follow Christ mandate To take the “Gospel of the kingdom throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

When we as Christians follow the course set before us by God, our focused must never waiver it must be all about Christ and His will for us in spreading the good news of His soon coming. as He uses our BOOTS AS A SOURCE THROUGH HIS SPIRIT TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
