The Love Motivated War Mode

By Francis Frangipane

If we will succeed in these difficult days, it will be, in part, because we have renounced the seductive limitations that accompany a peace-time mentality.  Indeed, we must embrace an aspect of spirituality that is unfamiliar to many Christians - one that is both militant and vigilant toward evil.  We must appropriate "the war mode" aspect of the mind of Christ.

Over the last few months the Holy Spirit has been calling the church to rise in intercessory prayer and in the exercise of spiritual authority.  With holy urgency in my heart, I say we do not have time to languish in self-pity about life's injustices.  In a time of war, we must not be distracted by little inconveniences.  We must possess a war mentality.
