"The HOUR for WAR"
-by Andrew Strom.

My computer got hit by a bad virus yesterday. I had to 
wipe my whole hard-drive and I lost over 4000 saved 
emails from the past year or so. It was not a happy day.
In fact, I was pretty discouraged.

But I tell you something. I went and had a good hard-out
PRAY to God about everything and I came out of that
prayer-time more convinced than ever that we are in an
hour of MOBILISATION and aggressive battle. We are
not to sit back and "let everything happen". We are to 
beat our pruning-hooks into spears and our plough-
shares into swords (-the 'sword of the Lord') and we are 
to take the fight to the enemy like never before. The 
Scripture tells us that "From the days of John the Baptist 
until now, the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and 
the VIOLENT take it by force."  So are YOU "violent", my 
friends? Or are you passive and nullified by a kind of 
'fatalism' that declares "Whatever will be will be"? That 
is not true Christianity. True Christianity has always 
been WAR and battle and the clash of armies. So are 
you "violent" or not? -Only the VIOLENT will take the 
kingdom in this hour. -God has spoken this for years. 

There are some on this List who have been "waiting"
for so long that to get out of their "peace-time" mode 
would takes a lightning bolt and a "shaking" far beyond 
what is healthy. I find it sad that it is not just the 
CHURCHES that need a good "shake" but some of us 
so-called 'Revival' types as well! There are some here 
who are about as "violent" as marshmallows. It is high 
time for that to change.

To those who say that we should still be in "waiting" 
mode, I pose this simple question:  When does the 'wait' 
end? When entire generations have been lost? When 
millions upon millions sitting in our churches are
eternally ruined? When the gays and transvestites and
New Agers have so taken over that they possess the 
very gates of our cities? Is the devil to "take the youngest" 
forever?

I love the Scripture from the story of David and Goliath 
that says, "And David spoke to the men that stood near
him, saying, What shall be done to the man who kills
this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel?
For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should
defy the armies of the Living God?" (1 Sam 17:26). And
the record tells us that with no armour and with 5 smooth 
stones as his only weapon, David RAN FULL-TILT towards 
that Philistine, to see His God avenged and his people's 
reproach removed. 

We hear a lot about people with "a heart like David" in
these last days. Let me tell you - David was a man of
WAR. A man of 'violence'. A man of action. He would 
not put up with His God being put to an open shame.
I wonder where the Lord will find His "Davids" today?

We live in one of the darkest hours in the history of our
planet. "As it was in the days of Noah and Lot" declares
the Scripture, and so it rapidly becomes. So where is
the light shining in this darkness? Is it you? Is it me?
Or do we slumber on?

Some of us have been "waiting" for 20 years for the
'right time' (-me included). Are we never to act at all? 
Do we just "float" on, excusing our lack of urgency and 
burden with the trite reply that we are "waiting on the 
Lord"? Will such feeble reasonings ever find a hearing 
in the courts of God?

There is a battle raging. It has never ceased. It is the 
battle for the hearts and souls of men. Let the 
"spectators" and idle onlookers clear the field. Let those 
without courage or urgency or burden retire from the 
scene. It is time for God's "mighty men of valor" to come
forth. The hour is late and the time will soon arrive when 
no man can work. "In season and out of season" said 
Paul, and it is time for us to heed his words. If ever there 
was an hour for the "Gideon's 300" it is now.

Years ago God spoke these words to me: "WHO DARES
WINS". -It is not enough to simply pray. For many have
prayed and yet not taken the kingdom. And neither is it
enough to prophesy. For many have brought endless
"words" and yet the kingdom remains undisturbed. The
phrase "Who DARES Wins" is the motto of the British
SAS - men of action who operate behind enemy lines
and who revel in courage and fighting spirit. So it will
be with the great end-times Army of God.

If you don't have the stomach for it, hang back and do
nothing. Nobody will notice.

But let the mighty ones of God arise in this hour. Let
those who have been prepared of God in the caves and
the deserts come forth. You have awaited a trumpet blast.
Do you not hear it? 

Gird up your loins, you mighty men. Prepare for war.
Let the armies of the enemy tremble. Arm of the Living 
God, put on strength! The Lord is about to arise and 
scatter His enemies. Can you not scent the blood in the air?

-With these words I place the trumpet to my mouth and 
give a loud cry on this day - June 9th, 2004. It is time 
for the mighty ones of God to come forth.

God bless you all.
