I recently came across a letter

by Rick Joyner (who heads Morningstar Ministries), a portion of which I excerpt here.

“There are many soldiers, but not many warriors,”
a Special Forces officer once told me. There are many professional soldiers who
may take their jobs very seriously and be very good at what they do, but when
you meet a warrior, you know the difference.

Church leadership is about to be transferred from the hands
of professionals, to the hands of true warriors, which the soldiers of the
cross will all soon become.

Warriors run to the sound of battle, not away from it. Warriors thrive in the
intensity of conflict and danger. They are not discouraged by opposition or
trouble, but rather come alive when faced with them. Such will be the constitution
of the emerging generation of Christians. Those who think the emerging
generation is soft will be shocked at the warrior nation that will soon be
revealed.

God Is A Warrior

God is a Warrior. He uses the title “Lord of
Hosts” or “Lord of Armies” ten times more than all of His other
titles. He is a martial God. Those who are going to reveal Him in these times,
are going to begin to take on the demeanor and discipline of a warrior, because
the emerging generation is being prepared to serve in the

greatest time of trouble the world has ever known. Even so, they will face
those troubles with faith and confidence. They will earn the title
“Overcomers” because they will never give way to opposition,
troubles, or battles, but will fight to win like Joshua, who fought until the
victory was total.

These emerging warrior Christians will have this same resolve because they will
know who they are, Who has sent them, and the power of the Kingdom that they
represent. Like King David’s mighty men, their exploits will be noised abroad
and strike fear into the hearts of the enemies of the King.

As this warrior generation emerges, it will impact and
bring transformation to the body of Christ, which will be so profound, that
churches will start being thought of more as military bases than congregations.
Serious training and the sending out of spiritual forces for unprecedented
strategic initiatives will become the order of the day.
