One Response to “Onward Christian Soldiers”

  1. With regards to Soldiers,

    Ezekiel 34:11 For thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out.
    Ezekiel 34:23 “Then I will set over them one shepherd, My servant David, and he will feed them; he will feed them himself and be their shepherd.
    John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
    John 10:14 “I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me,
    John 10:15 even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
    John 10:17 “For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life so that I may take it again.
    John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
    -1 John 3:16 We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren
    1 Peter 5:4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.

    Jesus taught that ‘those who take up the sword’, in rebellion against lawful authority, ‘will perish by the sword.’ This He said in rebuke to the Apostle Peter who was interfering in God’s plan of redemption. (Jesus pretty much told peter to stand down and holster his weapon)

    Matthew 26:51 And behold, one of those who were with Jesus reached and drew out his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his ear.
    ——
    Mark 14:47 But one of those who stood by drew his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his ear.

    Lk 22,36
    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.

    Lawful authority,
    Some say Jesus broke the old laws. and brought in new commandments. to replace the old laws but Jesus says He did not,

    I have kept my Father’s commandments” (John 15:10).

    Also in response to the young man who asked Him what to do to inherit eternal life, Jesus said,
    “If you want to enter into life, keep the commandments ” (Matthew 19:17).

    you know love thy neighbor comes from the old testament, He is saying all the commandments of God should be obeyed. On another occasion, Jesus said,

    “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4).

    He also commanded his disciples to be:
    . . . teaching them [new converts] to observe all things I have commanded you . . . ” (Matthew 28:20).

    “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets” (Matthew 5:17).

    The Bible is pretty simple. the Bible establishes laws and guide lines for a nation,( The Ten Commandments) 1-4 are for the believers and the rest of the Bible is for the believer that want a relationship with God and partake in a personal relationship with Him,which calls for a higher standard, like helping others,,but the moral standards are legitimate for any culture.
    Love is a process. and Evil is a progressive bad behavior,(in Mind,and body) From bad to worse, whether thats in a life time,or is in a segment of time

    What seperates us from the animal, is that we are thinking human beings…

    Honor thy parents(that watch out and protect)
    Command 5:
    Deuteronomy 5:16 (Respect parents) Matthew 15:3-4;Ephesians 6:1-3
    Command 6:
    Deuteronomy 5:17 ( No premeditated murder) 1 John 3:15
    Command 7:
    Deuteronomy 5:18 ( No adultery ) Matthew 5:27-28;1 Cor. 6:18-20
    Command 8:
    Deuteronomy 5:19 ( No stealing ) Ephesians 4:28
    Command 9:
    Deuteronomy 5:20 ( No false witness ) Colossians 3:9-10
    Command 10:
    Deuteronomy 5:21 (No coveting) Ephesians, 5:3

    the Ten Commandments,is a set of mandates that established both spiritual and cultural order within a nation.

    Thanks to all who have served and sacrificed for the freedoms. may God be with you soldiers. thank you for your sevice.
