Fight the Good Fight

Recently during worship, I heard, "Fight the good fight of faith." It is a "fight" indeed! If we merely look at things with our natural eyes, we will most certainly get a distorted view. Things are not always as they appear. God is always at work in our situations. He is working on our family members, finances, health issues, heart issues, forgiveness issues, and everything else that pertains to our lives. He is preparing things for us, and preparing us for things we have never seen or experienced before.

As we have entered into a new Spiritual level, we have also entered into new levels of warfare. All of us, who love God, must live by our faith and right now, our faith muscles need to be strengthened like never before. Paul tells us that we are to be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that our labor is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58). The word "steadfast" literally means "firmly loyal or constant; unswerving."

God's Secret Weapon: "High Praise"

Radical praise is radical warfare with radical results. Unified praise is a powerful spiritual bomb that shatters wicked plans and strategies. When we come together in praise, we are fighting on a higher level. When this happens, we don't get tired because we're not fighting in our own strength. We actually get strong and refreshed.

Radical, unified praise creates an atmosphere where God dwells; and when God arises, His enemies scatter. This praise brings us before the throne of God where joy becomes our strength. Our perspectives change in high praise and worship. Our views change about our circumstances and one another. It is a Spirit connection where our hearts are joined and we become as one, like Jesus and God are one, as Jesus prayed that for us in John 17.

When we are unified in worship, the enemies that war against us are set to flight. It is like creating this invisible shield in the Spirit realm, where things can't threaten us or affect us any longer. Things that seemed impossible from an earthly view are now entirely possible as we breathe in the majesty of our King. His love for us and His ability to take care of things is convincing, as we surrender our futile efforts to change things that God is already in control of.

As we stand in awe during worship, declarations of prophecy and new songs are released, and spiritual hindrances loose their grip giving way to victory. Prophetic words are released from Heaven, creating change on the earth. According to Psalms 149, these words that come during high praise actually execute vengeance on our enemies, punishment on people, bind kings and authorities in chains, and send forth written judgments that shatter their plans and their destructive schemes. And this Psalm further states that it is our "honor" because we are saints of the Most High God. Now THAT is victory.

Psalms 149

"Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, And His praise in the assembly of saints. Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. Let them praise His name with the dance; Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp. For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation."

"Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the peoples; To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute on them the written judgment--This honor have all His saints.
Praise the Lord!"

This action of unified high praise releases God's authority and Kingdom on this earth, accomplishing His will in our nation, families, cities, regions, circumstances, and everything that touches our lives.

We Need Each Other

Knowing that each body part supplies strength to the whole body, we cannot afford to separate ourselves from each other. The unified place where commanded blessing from God exists--cannot be ignored in this hour.

God has a wardrobe of things we should dress in. As we examine this closet, we will see ourselves look totally different and others look different too.

There are Great "Put On's" in God's Closet:

Colossians 3:12-17, "Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do."

"But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful."

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."

"And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him."

1 John 4:20, says that if we can't love our brother who we can see, how can we love God who we can't see?; and Hebrews 10:25 says to "not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching."

The Shofar is Being Blown

1 Corinthians 1:10, "Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."

Like in Nehemiah's day in the rebuilding of the wall, it's time to assemble and worship and war, arm in arm, with the same purpose, same heart, same mind, honoring the same Lord, who is the God and Father of us all.

Knowing that the days are short and there is much to be done, we will see great victories as we do things God's way and advance forward. OUR GOD IS FIGHTING FOR US.

Nehemiah 4:20, "Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us."

Come on, people now, Smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now.

Ascending in Worship, Descending in War
by Chuck Pierce with John Dickson

The war in the earth realm has always been over worship, fought by worship, and won by worship. Lucifer, the chief cherub, led the angelic hosts in Heaven in the worship of the Creator. However, he made a decision that he no longer wanted to be a worshiper, but he wanted to be worshiped. This is when WORSHIP WARS began. Today, they continue in the church, in the earth, and in the Heaven above the earth.

"You hold in your hands a weapon of warfare to be wielded only by the worshipful. This book will change your life--as you become a worshipful warrior." --Tommy Tenney, Author of The God Chasers

dutch sheets"The Worship Warrior gives us fresh insight into the marvelous relationship of worship and warfare. For the days ahead, we must learn how to ascend first in worship, receiving strength, wisdom, and courage and then descend into battle to push back the gates of hell and establish His Kingdom." --Dutch Sheets, Author of Intercessory Prayer

chuck pierceThe Heart of Praise"The Heart of Praise"
by Jack Hayford


Get ready to see your life change when you praise and worship God through the Psalms. Like ascending arrows, worship and praise leave our lips and hearts to puncture the Heavens and allow His abundant riches to rain down on us.

In this collection of praise reflections, Jack Hayford encourages you to welcome the King of Heaven into your daily life with the power to change you in the process. Start with a key verse from the Psalms, learn from Hayford's insights and applications, and then offer a "praise prayer." If you long to praise God in a deeper, more intimate way, you need look no further than The Heart of Praise.

Steve Shultz

We are hearing a lot of the prophetic about God giving us mighty and powerful keys to enable us to gain victory in our present battles -- the keys are worship and praise -- some are even trumpeting the call to "violent" praise! This book, is a fantastic resource to light or even rekindle the fire on the altar of adulation -- your heart -- and puncture the Heavens and send up a shout (or a loving whisper) to HIM who longs to hear from you! --Blessings, Steve Shultz, The Elijah List
