NO MAN THAT WARRETH ENTANGLETH HIMSELF........
The believers walk is a war torn Battle Field.Reason why Paul encouraged us to walk by Faith,this is because if we were to view the intense battles against us from the kingdom of Darkness through our natural senses we would not even venture into the fight.This scripture says:No man that warreth gets himself tied up,yoked with the affairs of this life.
A soldier by training never thinks like a civilian does,in a typical warfare situation when civilians are running for cover,the soldier rather gets himself armed and heads for the battle front;thats his training.He is trained to be the defender of the cause of a People or nation.Hence,he cannot be tied up in 'civility'.It's practically impossible for a soldier at the war front to be concerned about the what bills the national assembly is trying to pass.
The battle is more fierce on the believers side that we are not to be tied up here at all.King David decided just for once to take up the attitude of civility,he sent the others to war and he stayed behind and from Adultery he went to Murder and the consequences were very severe,even his own son Absalom sought to kill him.
Above all we must realise that there would always be 'Bathshebas', we cannpt stop them from 'bathing outside',nonetheless, if we are at our duty posts;at the war front there is no way we could fall prey to such temptationsor become entangled with such affairs of life.
The Charge today is never to neglect the place of warfare for the affairs of this life.One attack is all the enemy needs,and you know the devil would never miss,he has been lurking around anyway;and he knows exactly where to hit to flaw you.
Peradventure,you have let your guard down and have left the battle field,i enjoin you to take up your place at the war front again.The battle is on,and + God on your side, You are Bound to Win.
Central Truth:No man that is engaged in warfare is tied upin civilian duties.
FOCUS SCRIPTURE:2Timothy 2:4
Lord, i refuse to be engaged in carnal affairs while neglecting my place at the war front.I resume my duty post today In the Name of Jesus..
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
