Warrior message 1 outline

WARRIOR MESSAGE 1 “TAKE THE RED PILL”
Open message w/Matrix clip

“Open war is upon you whether you would risk it or not” –Aragorn

THERE IS AN UNSEEN WAR ALL AROUND US WHETHER WE REALIZE IT OR NOT
Ephesians 6:10-12 (NLT) 10 A final word: Be strong with the Lord's mighty power. 11 Put on all of God's armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil. 12 For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.

THERE IS AN UNSEEN BATTLEFIELD-YOUR HEART

Cause of Christ: THE ULTIMATE BATTLE FOR HEARTS AND SOULS OF MEN

Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) 23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

John 10:10
The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.
“The story of your life is the story of a long and brutal assault on your heart by the one who knows what you could be and fears it” Eldridge “Until you understand this much of your life will not make sense.”

Fights w’family, gossip, impulse purchases, conflicts at work, depression, hatred, anxiety can all be understand in the context of warfare.

1 Peter 5:8-9 (NIV) 8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
THERE IS AN UNSEEN WARRIOR

Exodus 15:3 (NIV) 3 The LORD is a warrior; the LORD is his name.
Jeremiah 20:11 (NIV) 11 But the LORD is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. Lord of hosts or almighty –Navy seal

Isaiah 42:13 (NRSV) 13 The LORD goes forth like a soldier, like a warrior he stirs up his fury; he cries out, he shouts aloud, he shows himself mighty against his foes.

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns…He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God…Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. "He will rule them with an iron scepter…"On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
Revelation 19:11-13, 15-16

YOU CAN BECOME A MIGHTY WARRIOR! YOU MUST CHOOSE

Image of god….

Judges 6:12 (NCV) 12 The angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon and said, "The Lord is with you, mighty warrior!"

James 4:7 (NIV) 7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Will you join the resistance?

Matthew 11:12
From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.

THE RED PILL OR THE BLUE PILL...WHICH WILL YOU CHOOSE?

Just a thought/blirb in connection to the Warrior series.

I have been coming to terms with my role, recently being crowned (literally) Princess Warrior. How is it that I fit into God's war? In Andy Comiskey's book, Strength in Weakness, he writes in regard to Women as wounders:

"ENTERING THE LAND

Numbers 13-14 describes the Israelites exploring the land of Canaan- a land flowing wtih milk and honey and laden with much fruit. But with the report of great blessing came also a great threat. Some gave a questionable report that the Canaanites were in fact giants, capable of devouring the Israelites, who wre reduced to grasshoppers in proportion to the monstorous size of the natives. Fear struck the hearts of the Israelites and caused them to disobey God's call to enter the land and partake of its bounty.

So it is with many [of us] men. We are not marauders per se; in truth, many of us tend to err on the side of caution. We commit sins of omission-we shrink back in the face of women's power to bless or curse us, to build us up or to dishonor us. As women have discovered their voices and their power, we [men] have lost our own. Rumors of giants tempt us to stay outside of ht eland, guarded, lonely and safe.

Secure in Christ, we exercise out authority to love. We obey his call to enter teh land, facing an dforsaking our fears along the way. Blessed are those who do. The Israelites who believed God and not the rumors entered into the land and its richness."

I think that the land of promises for me, is to see men rise up as image bearers displaying the true self, given by our creator.

Complementarity is my struggle. My false image of man is constantly being challenged and broken. I have no choice but to turn to Jesus as my original image of man, and in this case, warrior, because i long to step back and 'be' while man steps up and 'does'. As I become comfortable in being, my prayer is that I'm not wounding men. Am I teaching the next generation of men that they are a good gender? or as I discover my princess warrior am I warring against my own kingdom?

AHHH!! Have I done more wounding to my own kingdom than to the enemy? and at what point can I ride out to war next to man in complementarity?

"being" a women is hard. At least I have hope that God made me in His image, so He has the answers.

Preparing to ride to war,
Catherine
