War on Spiritual Terrorism

[…]operational environments–the physical domain of direct action, and the domain of unconventional spiritual warfare. True Strength While physical training strengthens our bodies, and battle drills build the muscle memory to act automatically under duress–we often overlook the “moral, ethical, and spiritual strength” required for combat. As Christian leaders we must comprehend Ephesians 6:12, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” To survive in this battle, our prayer orders become just as important as […]

God accomplished His purpose. 2. Since that time, the enemy of our souls has been severely handicapped: his power is limited, his intelligence is limited, his time is […]

Spiritual Battle Plans

As we seek to train for godliness and prepare for spiritually dry times, it is good to start with assumptions about the nature of the spiritual environment at our projected deployed location. After my Iraq experience, I decided to make the following spiritual assumptions for my Bosnia deployment: There will be: No Chapel. No OCF or weekly Bible study.

A primitive support structure-spiritually and logistically. Less (or […]

[…]two is delight in and meditation on God’s Word. As a military Christian, you will be involved in spiritual warfare. You understand combat. A military force has specific needs to perform properly on the battlefield. You also have these needs, which include the following: PSALM 119:105. You need light–the ability to “see.” 1 PETER 1.23-25, 2:2. You need food–energy to perform. EPHESIANS 6:10-17. You need protection and weapons. EPHESIANS 5:19 and 6:18,19.

Support Your Chaplain

[…]chaplains do not have such friendships or close fellowship, as they are always seen as the “spiritual provider” or the “caregiver.” Yet they too need to receive spiritual ministry and refreshment. Getting to Know Your Chaplain OCF Members We encourage all OCF members to meet the chaplain(s) on their installation or ship. If there is not one, consider visiting the chaplain who is assigned coverage for that unit. It is absolutely essential, and proper protocol, that the OCF Area Coordinator or Local Representative calls on the Installation Chaplain, regardless of the chaplain’s faith group. Such introductory meetings can accomplish several […]
