My wife, Mary, and I went to see the movie, War Room.
The story revolves around the concept of
spiritual warfare. Most Christians fail
to realize Jesus leads His followers into battle. Worse, many church leaders are reluctant to
provide their congregations basic military training. Therefore, uncountable believers are not
ready to fight the powers of darkness when they attack and render the Christian
ineffective, or worse, disqualified for battle.
I do not know if the movie creators, Alex and Stephen Kendrick, intended
to provide advanced spiritual warfare training to their target audience. However, in roughly two hours viewers (and
Jesus’ disciples who desire to serve Him) are introduced to and trained in operational,
strategic and tactical spiritual warfare.
The main character, a nominal believer, began
basic prayer training under the tutelage of an elderly woman who knew how to
pray, earnestly and effectively. The
trainee engaged in battle, the salvation of her marriage. She sees the physical manifestation of the
unseen spiritual reality. Her faith was put
to a test, and in time she was found faithful, worthy of the title, Prayer Warrior.
is a must see for Christians who are unaware or unsure of their calling to our
King’s battle. It is a great reminder
for us battle-hardened veterans to stay in the fight. We cannot grow weary in this harassing war
between good and evil.
I linked an encouraging battle song “HE IS,” by Aaron
Jeoffrey (I apologize for the accompanying add).
Thanks for reading. If our LORD permits, let the restoration of
our Constitutional Republic begin for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
