“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)
“And the Word was made flesh…” (John 1:14)
Jesus was the Word first, and then took on flesh, whereas we were flesh first, now trying to become the Word!
Have you thought about that? Have you thought about our spiritual journey, is the journey of Christ in reverse! He started in heaven and came to earth. We started on earth and are going to heaven. He walked in Spirit first, but we walked in flesh, and now seek to walk in Spirit! He has the mind of Christ, we have an earthly mind seeking the mind of Christ.
So what is this Samurai for Christ thing? What does it mean to be Samurai for Christ, or a Samurai of Light?
IT MEANS SIMPLY THIS: > You are flesh with a very strong desire, devotion, dedication, and determination, TO BECOME THE WORD!
“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:” (Eph. 6:17)
…and the Word was made flesh? Can flesh become Word? Supernaturally it has already happened, but how much can we manifest it now? Even as the earth waits for the manifestations of the sons of God!
We have been given a sword, and we are to become the sword. When Jesus told Peter that those who live by the sword will die by the sword, was he really saying for us to have nothing to do with swords? (Matt. 26:52) I THINK HE WAS ASKING US TO CHOOSE WHICH SWORD WE WOULD DIE BY! (And live by.)
Jesus, himself, as our great example, lived, died, and resurrected by the Sword of God, God’s Word! Jesus lived and died by the Spirit Sword!
And who could forget his famous words of: “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” (Matt. 10:34)
We are the Bride of the Lamb, but we are a Samurai Bride. We have married into a holy and sacred Sword having power against all that is evil, and our Husband is also our Lord and Master. We seek mastery. The word Samurai means > “One who serves”.
I did not expect to share what I am about to. A year or so ago, I actually declared war on the devil. I don’t know if that sounds silly to you, or not, but that is what I did. Now realize, declaring war on somebody is not a small thing to do! This goes beyond just trying to be a good Christian and eventually make it to heaven. In the name of Jesus I decided to go to war! My life has not been the same since.
Two months ago I developed a back injury and have not worked since the beginning of this year. As a truck driver, loading and unloading my trailer is very physical work. An MRI reveals I need to see a neurosurgeon. However, during this time I have been able to do so much more for God!
I’m 58 years old now, and our five children are finally raised. Now it is just me and the little lady, know what I mean? I do not want to spend the golden years of my life simply working all the time so I can eat out more or drive a new truck. I want my golden years to truly be golden! God’s gold!
Driving a truck required long and hard hours. I may not go back. I have declared war on the devil and you may find me serving coffee at Starbucks if that enables me to do more for the Kingdom of God!
Two-thirds of my life is likely over. I have three books I am currently working on, and a possible connection for each. The three books are entitled: > 1) “God’s Bounty Hunter” 2) “The Sword Maker”, and 3) “Grandpa and the Little Samurai”. This last one is a children’s book.
I was in a lot of pain the whole month of January, but wrote books just the same, books born out of pain. My body has improved but not enough to work. I’ve already explored a lot of things, a chiropractor worked on me for two weeks with no change whatsoever. I have other things I am doing, so I’m not looking for more advice here, believe me, everyone seems to know what I need to do, but I know God has me right where he wants me, and I have declared war!
I will eventually be able to work whatever job God knows I need. There is no doubt in my mind about that. The anointing on my life has grown during this time. I preached last Sunday and God moved in a powerful way. While my financial income has dropped off in a very serious way, the anointing of God on my life has increased in a very serious way.
Happy, happy, happy! I am a man at war. I serve a Master, and his name is, Jesus! He is Love’s greatest warrior. He is King of righteousness, and he is my champion. He has given me a beautiful Sword to live by. I am a spiritual Samurai. My Sword is my life, and my life is my Sword.
Perhaps soon, I will be saying, “Silver and gold have I none.” But I am happy, happy, happy, because my life is about arresting the devil, and during this time I have been watching that grow! I will make the devil wish he never touched me, as God turns the devil’s evil into my good! Praise my Lord forever. Amen!
In the meantime, I feel this Samurai message very strongly. I believe a move of God is close at hand, and indeed, already starting. God needs his people to know how to fight the good fight of faith, and not be entangled in the things of this world. What I am saying is this. I intend to keep writing this Samurai of Light message. If you find something in these words that helps to inspire you for this holy battle in which we live, then please let other people know about this site, “The Living Sword”. For that is what God has called us to be.
God is not in to making swords of steel, but he is in to making living Swords of flesh and blood, who walk after the Spirit, and not the flesh. Amen.
Be blessed, you all.
