Battle Cry

by Catherinebutterfly

The Bible says
"Upon this rock I will build my church
and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it"
Jesus said that upon that rock He will build His Church
and the gates of hell shall not prevail.

Gates do not have hands and feet
so they can't walk up and down the street
Gates do not have mouths to speak
So let me go a little bit deep.

Satan's kingdom has no business moving towards us.
We are to be moving in his direction with the Word of
God bringing the Message.
Some of us would really like to say to the enemy.
:Listen as long as you don't bother me,
I won't bother you.
Let's just peacefully CO-exist.
These things they might as well dismiss.

God wants us to awake out of our sleep.
Don't listen to him whispering to you so sweet
by now you should know talk is cheap.
The enemy is trying to make a statement.
We wrestle not with flesh and blood.
Just know Jesus got on His boxing gloves.

"Be strong and of a good courage;
for unto this people shalt thou divide
for an inheritance of the land."
we as God's people bow to no man.

God said it time to get up on our feet and take action.
The bible says "be strong and of good courage"
He'll walk us through this deadly temptation
I tell you the Holy Spirit 
is filling God's people with loving inspiration.

Be strong, vigorous, and ready to act.
A call to combat readiness you should never hold back
God will fight our battle is a true fact.
Resist the devil and his demons and they have to get back.
Give them old demons no slack.
For Jesus they know they are no match.

"and they rose early in the morning and went
out into the wilderness of Tekoa and as they went out,
Jehosaphat stood and said, Hear me,
O Judah, and you inhabitants of Jerusalem.
Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be
established, believe and remain steadfast to
His prophets, and you shall prosper."

There are some individuals going through a shaking,
be not mistaking, they are going through strange occurrences
"it's becoming difficult to persevere.
I tell you do not give in to fear
Our Savior Jesus is always near

This will determine who will prosper and who will not.
The word "prosper" means "to leap forward."
there will be some who will leap forward,
there will be others who will go backwards.
There are others weighing in the balance saying

"Oh God, this is more than I anticipated.
I want to live. Lord, and not die
they're even falling down before the altar
confession their sins as they give loud cries,
to God they do these things not unto mere men

"I'm going to take it easy." I heard them say
then I saw the angels go by them and say,
"Well, that's one off the list."
they won't be attempting to die this day.
They sold their birthright for some rest.
Just as Esau sold his for porridge.
Thugs off the streets gave up guns and cartridge
pimps and players made their change
the addicts chose to live and not blow out their brain.
Nothing in their homes was ever the same.

God is saying that something is going to happen.
Even down here we can find a bit of heaven.
Something is going to happen in the the body of Christ
It wasn't for nothing Jesus paid the price.
Come, come make a stand
Join us and live and not die
Aren't you tied of just getting by?
