Victory Assured for God's Army
Belinda Anderson - 02/23/2012
(David's notes in red)

I saw myself inside a worldly Marine commander's tent on a battlefield. (Symbolizing a worldly religious leader.) The commander was going over rescue plans with three of his special ops men. (Leading his brethren to rescue one captive to demonic forces.) Earlier that day, one of the men named Brad in his platoon had been taken captive by the enemy while trying to take a nearby city. ("Brad" is short for "Bradley", meaning "broad meadow". Possibly symbolizing in this case bearing the fruit of much flesh, since Peter said, "All flesh is as grass". These are the people who get overcome by the enemy spirits easily.)

After receiving their orders, the three special ops men set out to rescue Brad (bruised, rejected and defeated). Ops man #1 went in first. As soon as he took two steps into the city, he was confronted by the largest enemy he had ever seen in his life. He pulled out his gun and fired but the bullet came out of the chamber and fell onto the ground. He had no choice but to surrender. Next, ops man #2 was sent in. He saw the mistake ops man #1 made, so he decided he would use a hand grenade, so he wouldn't have to get too close to the enemy. He pulled the pin and threw the grenade at the enemy, but the grenade was a dud. He was captured and taken prisoner along with ops man #1. Lastly, ops man #3 went in. His strategy was to get down on his belly and sneak his way around the enemy. What he didn't know was that the enemy saw him coming. When he got just a few feet into the city, the enemy came up behind him and knocked him out. All three of these men were thrown into prison with Brad. {2Co.10:3} For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh {4} (for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds.)

Upon hearing this grim report, the worldly Marine commander was at a loss as to what to do next since all of his TOP men had been taken prisoner. (When the leadership are taken captive to demonic forces, they are in a work they are not qualified to do.) His lieutenant said, "Sir, there is a young private from another army waiting outside to see you". The commander asked him, "What army is he from?" The lieutenant said, "I don't know, sir, but I think you should at least see this private". (Turns out he is just a private in God's army, which is higher in rank [authority] than all of the enemy's army. {Psa.8:2} Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established strength, Because of thine adversaries, That thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. If you have the two-edged sword of the Word, saint, you have the authority over the demonic forces holding the immature Christians captive.)

So the commander granted the private entrance into his tent. The Commander asked, "Son, do you understand the gravity of this situation?" The private answered, "Yes, sir, I do". The commander asked, "Well, son, what makes you think that you have what it takes to rescue these men?" The private said, "Sir, with all due respect, this kind of war can't be fought by worldly standards and weapons". {Eph.6:10} Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might. {11} Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. {12} For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual [hosts] of wickedness in the heavenly [places].) The commander asked, "What do you mean by that statement?" The private stated, "Sir, this is a very different kind of war and requires higher intelligence and weaponry. My commander (The Word in our heart is Commander Jesus) sent me to you as he said I would be capable of handling this rescue alone. Upon your approval, commander, I would like to try". (The disciple is full of faith and confidence. {Mar.16:17} And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons.)

The Commander said, "Alright, private, I'll give you a shot at it, but if you get captured you are on your own". The private stated that he understood the risks, but he knew he would be fine. As the private neared the city, he dropped to his knees and bowed his head and began to pray. When he finished his prayer and thanked the Lord, he proceeded onward. Upon entering the city, he was immediately confronted with enemy #1, rebellion. He was a BIG ENEMY, ugly and hideous. Rebellion said to private, "Haven't I seen you somewhere before? You sure look familiar". Private said, "Oh, yeah, we've met". Rebellion said, "You look pretty scrawny, private. I can't believe they would send somebody like you in here". {Zec.4:6}... Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith Jehovah of hosts.

While Rebellion was running off at the mouth, he didn't see private pull out the large bazooka he had hidden behind his back. Private took aim and pulled the trigger. A large powerful blast of water hit Rebellion right in the heart. It blew him into so many pieces he looked like snowflakes coming to the ground. (The washing of water with the Word is our authority to convict others of sin and to cast out their enemy.)

Next, Private was going around a corner onto the next street and there he was -- archenemy Anger was standing there with a big grin on his ugly face. He said, "Well if it isn't little ol' Private. I sure didn't expect to see you here". Private said, "No, I don't expect you did". Anger raised up his weapon to fire on Private and said, "Might as well get this over with quickly; it's lunch time and I'm hungry". Private said, "I couldn't agree more". He pulled out his weapon and before Anger could get off a shot, Private hit him right in the middle of his forehead and he fell dead like a rock. (Conquering the mind of the flesh in which anger can live. {2Co.10:5} casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ ...)

Private stopped and sang praises and thanks to the Lord, then proceeded on. He hadn't gone far when out popped Bitterness from behind a bus. Bitterness yelled out to Private from a distance, "Hey, Private, remember me? I whipped you good the last time I saw you". Private stated back in a calm and controlled voice, "I remember, Bitterness. I wasn't prepared for your attack last time, but all that has changed". Bitterness took a deep breath and spit a deadly green-looking slime out of his mouth (slander and criticism) to destroy Private. Private remembered the last attack, so he was ready. He took aim and hit Bitterness right in the mouth and knocked his head onto the ground. (He destroyed the mind of flesh with the Word.) Private found the captives and led them out of the city. It was late in the day, so they stopped to camp for the night. Private expected victory, so he had brought plenty of food and water for himself and the captives.

Later, as they were sitting and warming themselves by the fire, the four men asked Private how he was able to rescue them all by himself. {Psa.149:6} [Let] the high praises of God [be] in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand; {7} To execute vengeance upon the nations, And punishments upon the peoples; {8} To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; {9} To execute upon them the judgment written: This honor have all his saints. Praise ye Jehovah. Even the least private outranks the demonic nobles and kings over this world. {Luk.10:17} And the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject unto us in thy name. {18} And he said unto them, I beheld Satan fallen as lightning from heaven. {19} Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise hurt you. {20} Nevertheless in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven. {21} In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou didst hide these things from the wise and understanding (the commanders of apostate religion), and didst reveal them unto babes (privates): yea, Father; for so it was well-pleasing in thy sight.

He told them about this special army he was in and how wonderful his commanding officer was to all the men. He told them his commanding officer wrote an awesome book (the Bible) that contained absolute truths and strategies on how to defeat your enemies. Private told them that after completing this training you won't have any problems defeating your enemies. He said, "I was once like you. I got my instructions from the world and I wasn't very successful in defeating my enemies. My commander and his book changed my entire life". Upon hearing this real Good News, these men wanted to know more about Private's commander and this awesome book. Private spent all night reading the book to these men. In the morning, they all made their way back to base camp.Private delivered the four men back to their commander.

As Private turned around to leave, the worldly commander stopped him and said, "Son, you can't leave yet. We have a reward for you". Private stated, "Sir, with all due respect, I can't accept that reward, as it belongs to my commander, not me. (Jesus warned us not to receive the glory of men or we would not have the glory of God.) You see, sir, it was my commander (Jesus) and his weapon (the Word of God) that rescued these men. I was just the vessel he used to accomplish his mission. As Private was walking out the door, the four men that he had rescued came running up to join him. They told Private they had resigned from their army and they wanted to join up with his army. They couldn't wait to meet his commander and learn more from that awesome book. Private was happy to take these new recruits to meet his awesome commander.
