Let me start with a warning. This is to be a blunt and outspoken
piece. It is deliberately designed to be a challenge to our
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 why is it that so many of
us are 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 for the souls of men.
I have been guilty of this “fatalism” myself. And 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? 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
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 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. 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 end-times servants of God.
If you don’t have the stomach for it, hang back and do
nothing. Nobody will notice.
But 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.
Arm of the Living God, put on strength! The Lord is about to
arise and scatter His enemies. Can you not sense it?
Let the modern John-the-Baptists come forth.
Special blessings to all.
