Neither the Father nor Jesus were pacifists.
“The LORD is a warrior; the LORD is His name.” – Exodus 15:3
“Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-las; and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household.”
“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.” – Matthew 10:34-39
I wrote this song in the wake of learning about myself as a warrior. Not a human soldier, but a spiritual soldier. Hope you enjoy it! It is quite short…
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.” – 2 Corinthians 10:3-6
