The War of Wars – by Bernie Wheater

Author’s note: “This is a poem that talks about the only real war there is.”

The War Of Wars

The battle has begun.

Spiritual wickedness is out in force.

The rulers of darkness

has this world on a destructive evil course.

So girt your loins about with truth,

filled with the Living Word.

Put on your breastplate of righteousness,

living the Living Word you heard.

Be sure to shod your feet

with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

Sharing the good news of the Living Word you heard,

with everyone you meet.

With every step you take,

and everywhere you walk

bring glory to our Lord and God

with every word you talk.

We must put on the warriors armour,

for sin is but a thought away.

We must put on the full armour of God

every morning of every day.

Your enemy is as a roaring lion,

and it’s you he wishes to devour.

Hold high your shield of faith

every minute of every hour.

We’re in the middle of a war,

greater then any that came before.

We’re soldiers of this final war

already won from time forever more.

Proudly wear your Holy armour,

for you’re on the winning side.

This world has no power stronger

then He that inside you resides.

Satan takes no prisoners,

His only joy is devouring the souls of man.

But remember oh ye Christians

Jesus put a weapon. . , the Bible in your hand.

There’s an evil empire coming,

filled with death. . tears . . . and pain

An empire filled with the lies of Satan

And the governments of earth give him total reign.

So put on your helmet of salvation,

bought with the blood of Jesus’ love

A gift so freely given us

from our Loving Father up above.

This helmet. will protect you

from every lie that Satan has said

keeping your heart clear and pure

for the battle just ahead.

Remember where you were

when God pulled you from the swine’s pen

A God of such Grace and Love

no power is greater then that which comes from Him.

So take your sword of the Spirit

boldly to the battle of the front lines.

The Holy Spirit will watch your back,

don’t worry about what’s behind.

Clothed in your armour, now fight like a man

and get on your knees and pray.

Pray without ceasing,

every second of every minute, every hour of every day.

For no battle can be won,

without God leading the way.

And if you want God to lead you

then pray . . . pray . . . and pray.

For we’re in the middle of a war,

greater then any that came before.

We’re soldiers of this final war

already won from time forever more.

Proudly wear your Holy armour,

for you’re on the winning side.

This world has no power stronger

then He that inside you resides.

Though it seems Satan is winning the battle

and at times that’s the way it may look.

But remember oh ye Christians

Jesus has shown us the ending of the book.

There’s a whole new world coming,

no death. . . no tears. . . . . no pain

A world where our precious saviour Jesus

as King of kings forever and ever reigns.
