The Soldiers Weapons

So, how do we accomplish this? How can we make what is around us TRULY a part of the Kingdom of Heaven? The answer is simple: we have to use the most powerful weapon that is at our disposal – the Word of God. After all, as it says:

11So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Isaiah 55:11

God Himself watches to see that His word is accomplished. The ingredient required to be a true solider for Christ is faith. Without faith, we can accomplish nothing. When we speak the Word in the name of Jesus, we must be confident that it will be accomplished. Consider:

22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Mark 11:22-24

Without belief – without faith – we cannot do what Jesus has commanded us to do. We cannot command in the name of Jesus if we have no belief in the name of Jesus.
