    STAND UP and FIGHT THE BATTLE

    by David Wilkerson


    How many Christians call themselves warriors but have never been

    tested or trained? We hear about the many prayer warriors in this

    nation. But the sad truth is, the vast majority of them have never

    been trained -- they're not ready to fight. Many true believers refuse

    to fight the devil or do battle against his kingdom.


    When God does find a believer with a hunger and a desire for his

    blessing, he puts him into the ring to learn to fight. The Lord is

    going to need well-trained warriors who will prevail over all the

    powers of hell in his last hour of warfare.


    Right now God is doing a quick work in his remnant -- it's called

    crisis training. These tested saints in this training are becoming

    the captains of his last-day army. God is putting Holy Ghost fight

    in them and he is bringing forth warriors who are tested and tried,

    because they've wrestled with God, just as Jacob did (see Genesis 32:24-32).


    This kind of training calls for physical discipline as well as spiritual.

    Jacob threw his whole body into the battle, all his human ability.

    A fighting spirit had risen up in him and, Scripture says, "He

    struggled with the Angel and prevailed" (Hosea 12:4). This verse

    has great meaning for all who want to prevail in prayer. It says

    Jacob prevailed and won the battle. If you're going to prevail in

    these last days, you're going to have to put all your strength into it.


    "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks

    about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him"

    (1 Peter 5:8-9).


    Many Christians expect God to somehow save their family,

    reconcile relationships, do miracles, all at no cost to them.
    They

    just want to rest in their rocking chair and "believe God for it all."

    But this matter of prevailing in prayer --- "breaking through" to

    God, getting answers and seeing results -- is going to cost your

    flesh something.


    God wants you to lay hold of Him because He loves you. He wants

    you to claim all his blessings. Rise up in faith and lay hold of His

    promises. Stand up and fight. You have his strength so use it!
