My Vision of God as a Man of War

Published on 1/12/2017
For additional information  Click Here

I decided to write this to benefit mankind based on what God showed me during my period of training me as a Minister of the Gospel.
I realized that there is always a difference between when God trains you and you learn under His feet than when you learn ONLY at the feet of men. The full training I had with God in Ministry is relayed in my book, ‘The 4 Pillars that Build a Successful Ministry’. Please do get it if your desire is to build according to pattern and to be successful in life and Ministry.
While in my sitting period, God showed visions of how He prepares His men and His children for His work and in life. In this i had visions of God.

A vision is a picture within your mind that shows events into the future and it looks as if you were not in this present world has it were. Remember that all visions MUST BE TESTED according to the word of
God before it can stand true.
Visions are implanted by God to show what is about to happen in the future or in the immediate.
We see the accounts of the prophets of old and how they testified of God’s vision shown to them over Nations and kingdoms of this world and the fulfillment therein.
The account of Jeremiah comes to mind in Jer 1:10 which says, ‘See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, To pluck up and to break, To destroy and to overthrow, To build and to plant.’
See what verses 11-16 says, ‘The word of the LORD came to me saying,
What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.”
12. Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My
word to perform it.”
13.The word of the LORD came to me a second time saying, “What do
you see?” And I said, “I see a boiling pot, facing away from the north.”

14. Then the LORD said to me, “Out of the north the evil will break forth on all the
inhabitants of the land. 15“For, behold, I am calling all the families of the
kingdoms of the north,” declares the LORD; “and they will come and they will
set each one his throne at the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, and against
all its walls round about and against all the cities of Judah. 16“I will
pronounce My judgments on them concerning all their wickedness, whereby
they have forsaken Me and have offered sacrifices to other gods, and worshiped
the works of their own hands.

The account of Jeremiah in the bible in Chapters 36-52, find its fulfillment of this vision to Jeremiah.

This is an example of what a vision is.
We consider Daniel. In Daniel 2:19, the Bible said, ‘Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a night vision.’ The problem of the King was solved via vision. Visions are pictures impressed within the mind of man that will look as it were like a film played before you like a movie. No one can play that.
Imagination is NOT it. Visions are much deeper.
Explaining this to you is to let you understand in full details what God showed me that has stayed with me till date and changed everything about my life bringing much success than I can ever imagine in my life.

My vision of God as a man of war is hereby revealed: This was what i saw. Enjoy.

The Warrior.

There lies before me God as a warrior; Tall, huge and breasted with a brown royal robe knotted on Him like of a Roman Emperor , seated under a juniper tree, with an old worn out sword He had found thrown away in a forest just behind Him.
He had been fighting long wars and what laid before Him where all His enemies thronging in droves in their millions. He was the ONLY one against a massive battalion’s of soldiers and that with a seemingly useless sword that He had found. The battle was against Him but not for long.
The battle ground was a levelled ground with a clear ground but around the area lied thick bushes.
He was analyzing the war before Him. He had utilized every weapon He had found on each battle ground and some He had to throw away since it couldn’t go through the refiner’s fire and some had been of great use to Him. He had no time. He had to be fast and swift.
The enemies are still at a distance. He suddenly stood up and looked at the sword. It could be polished and good IF He could work on it and work it till He could see HIS IMAGE ON THE SWORD. THEN HIS SWORD WILL BE READY TO FIGHT AND THE WAR READY TO BE WON.
He had a hide out that the enemy did not know of. He called it THE SECRET PLACE. That was the place He trains with His swords. Now it is time to go there and win this battle once and for all and tell His enemies that He is NOT their match.
His secret place is not so unusual. It was a hideout not something really so fascinating. It was a training place.
In the secret place lied His resting bed and a royal table with a royal chair, the floor tiled with ceramics and an open window towards the rising of the sun to beckon Him to the dawning of another day. There lies the blindfolds that covers the window. It had an angelic embroidment on it. it was purple in
colour. It fascinated Him how the colour blended with the angelic embroidment on it.
Just behind the building was the blacksmith’s tools for making a sword and a launderer’s tools for washing a vessel. It was a perfect idle place that He could hide for the moment to build His tool for battle.
He could hammer for as loud as He wants, yet without being heard or His
place located. it was His ideal place.
The place was His little sanctuary. The huge forest in the savannah had totally covered Him and He decided to take a 4,000 cubits great distance from the battle field to prepare.

Within the parameter of the distance lied a place to train with His sword, in order to BOND WITH IT and get into the wielding of its power that it carries. He considered all these as He stood up.
Immediately He stood up, His enemies cheered crazily into the atmosphere thinking He was about to charge them into battle. He knew if He did, He was toast. A warrior may be great, but His weapon is what determines the tune of the battle for him.
So, due to the sword He had at hand. He had to retreat and prepare for WAR. His enemies began to laugh at Him in derision as He walked away into His hideout. He turned His face a little backward to gaze His face at them and all He could do at that time was smile. He knew they would suffer greatly for it.
It wasn’t yet His time. He knew how to make things beautiful in HIS TIME. It wasn’t yet His time. He had to wait and prepare.
