SIS. ANNE-MARIE CLARKE
FATHER GOD, I thank you this day for waking me up, for giving me a chance to be in your Presence, to be able to do your will according to your plans and purposes. I bless you LORD, I worship and adore you O precious FATHER! Thank you FATHER, for You alone deserve the Glory and Honour, Hallelujah!
Blessings to you in the wonderful name of Our LORD and Saviour JESUS CHRIST! Today I will be sharing on “The Army of GOD” – the last chapter taken from the book “Channels of His Life – by Prophet Laymouth Sandy,” as I was led by the person of the “HOLY SPIRIT” to share from this book. Be blessed, encouraged and edified as you read and meditate on this teaching.
“THE ARMY OF GOD”
This is the hour of the raising of My army in the earth. For I am bringing My people into a new mind-set of the life they are being called to. Their minds are set on the teaching they have received. They do not know that they are an army. They do not know that from the moment they gave their lives to ME and entered MY Kingdom, they have enlisted into an army.
I am informing them that they are soldiers in MY army and that there are disciplines which will be required of them. Many will not follow these disciplines, but many will. With this mindset of knowing that they are soldiers, the word ‘discipline’ will have new meaning to all of them if they remain in MY army. Soldiers are not their own, they are part of a team. They do not do as they please. They do what they are commanded to do without questioning. They go wherever they are sent and at the appointed time, many will lose their lives but they will not be afraid to die. All soldiers know that they are not to be selfish, but selfless. Soldiers move around in companies of twos or threes. They also move in groups to enable them to cover each other. MY people will begin to see themselves as soldiers. They will see what is now known as the “Christian life” emerge as the “Army.” The way they see ME will also be changed. They now see ME as Saviour and LORD, which I am; but they will also see ME as the Chief Commander and the Captain of the army.
The Word of the LORD came unto me saying “Measure.” Then I looked and I saw a square with its four equal sides the LORD said, “The temple that is under construction must be equal on every side. It is the hour when I am bringing MY measuring rod to the temple.” I looked again and I saw JESUS in the square. EPHESIANS 4 VERSE 12 immediately came to my rememberance:-
“Till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of GOD, to a perfect man to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”
The LORD then said “Everything within the Church must be measured by the fullness of JESUS CHRIST.” I saw the fullness of JESUS being manifested in the fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. The fullness of JESUS CHRIST is the perfect man.
The LORD said, “Tell the builders to use the measuring rod that I have given. By this rod shall the standard of men be measured. Love must be measured. Faithfulness must be measured. Truth, mercy, forgiveness, servanthood and selflessness must be measured. Use the rod for the standard of life on the earth.
For many have measured by the standard of their own self. They have built according to their measurement and have said to many, ‘this is the full measurement.’ But I say unto you, measure by the standard of MY Son, for that is the measurement for all men in the earth.” Measure, measure, measure and build, build, build” says the LORD.
FATHER GOD, I bless your HOLY Name. Thank you for your Word and Truth, that Our Spirit man would bear witness to your Word. How to be true soldiers in the Army of the LORD. FATHER GOD, your “CHURCH” shall ARISE! Hallelujah!
