Do you know who the Veterans of the Bible are, those who have fought the good fight? Realize this, we as Christians, alive today, are on that same battlefield! We are up against the very same enemy, EVIL!
We celebrate and remember all who went before us, those who sacrificed, those who achieved kingdom victory, regardless of earthly, temporal cost, as we step out, in faith, against the enemy. The prize and the bounty here is much greater! Freedom in Christ, Eternal Life and Gods Reigning Dominion. Fear not what Man can do to you BUT what the Living God can do! Matthew 10:28
There are so many valiant men & women of Biblical history, for instance, Deborah, Esther, Sarah, Rahab, Ruth, to name a few… then we have, David, Joseph, Moses, Noah, Paul, Samson. A great cloud of witnesses who have gone before us!
One small bit of encouragement that should help, is in knowing we are so blessed, according to the word, those of us who BELIEVE upon Jesus, having never knew him in John 20:29 His earthly flesh! His word says that we are extra blessed for that fact! We are predisposed to incredible faith just in the act of receiving the knowledge of “He was, He is and He always Shall be!”
Our Holy Triune, Omniscient Lord God! Thank you Jesus, our commander in Chief, who has walked where we have walked. Able to guide, cloak, equip and fortify us, as needed. Where ever we may be in His schematic, our part is just as important. We may never be called upon to such great a degree as these Mighty Men and Women of God, or we might be called upon for even Greater things to come! o/ see–>John 14:12
Be thankful everyday and today, this day…give thanks for those who have fought for these same freedoms, right here where we live, on American God fearing soil!
God Bless America and God Bless Every Christian Soldier! God Bless our United States Veterans!
PRESS ON AND FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT!

Letters from War – Mark Schultz
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
John 20:29Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
