The Mighty Army

Comes at a Cost
I felt this so strong to share this morning as the anointing is precious.
The anointing comes at a cost. So many times we see
people who talk the talk, but never walk the walk.
The fruits are just not there. You cannot cling to the world and hold on to the coat-tail of Jesus too. We are in a time not to play games
or sugar coat anything, but just be real!
As you get stronger with the anointing in your life, never forget that the presence of sin in your life, will make you and your words like, that of any other man
before the people.
Samson for example, was strong and anointed; he had that call upon his life, but the presence of the words of a sinful woman in his life, made him like every other human being.
The scriptures says about how Delilah mistreated Samson:
“And when she pressed him day after day with her words and urged him, he was vexed to death.
Then he told her all his mind and said to her, “A razor has never come upon my head, for I have been a Nazarite to God from my birth. If I am shaved, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak and be like any other man.”
And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his mind, she went and called for the Philistine lords, saying, “Come up this once, for he has told me all he knows.”
Then the Philistine lords came up to her and brought the money in their hands,” Judges 16:16-18 AMPC.
You can see how mere words can transform a strong and anointed man, into
an ordinary human being. Delilah pressed Samson with words over and over again, until he gave in to her pressure. Samson gave in to her words.
Words made a powerful man to become powerless.
It is just as the word of God can build up the anointing over your life.
You carry that mission upon your life but if there is sin in your camp, it renders it ineffective and powerless.
We are to be the salt and light of this world.
The words of men can also lead you into temptation, causing you to start living like the ordinary people around you.
When you find yourself reacting to issues around you, with the same words of the unsaved people around you, remember that “... sin is at the door. And its desire is for you (your soul), but you should rule over it.” (Genesis 4:7).
Sin or unrighteousness will adversely affect your anointing.
There is a shake up coming for a wake up!
“Before them — fire devours. Behind them — a flame blazes. Nothing will escape them.
With a noise like that
of chariots, they leap over the mountaintops, like a crackling fire consuming stubble.
They are my Mighty Army drawn for battle. They charge like warriors; they scale the walls like soldiers.
They all march in line, not swerving from their course.
They are not distracted as each marches straight ahead. They plunge through defenses without breaking their ranks.
They rush upon the city; they run along the walls. They climb into the houses; like thieves that enter through the windows.
Before them the earth shakes, the sky trembles, and I, The LORD,
thunders at the head of this army and you are my mighty warriors; with forces that are beyond number, and mighty are those who obey My Command.”
Move and advance Soldiers of God! Sometimes
your only available transportation is a leap of faith!
