  God calls His army, large and strong!  Take up your battle arms.  The day has come for one and all
to slay the evil dragon Satan.  Don't be afraid, raise high your swords, the word of God is true.  It's

  Christian soldiers, you have a mission!   Be brave and true to your call to defend Jesus Christ your
Savior from the evils of this world.  Remember our fight is not against flesh and blood, it is against the
wicked spiritual forces of evil.  Evil, which wants to defeat love and all those who are good.

  Take up your arms!  Stand your ground!  The King of kings is coming soon!

  I ran for my Bible and I fell on my knees to prepare my heart for my mission.  I understood my call
and I prayed for strength as I faced the evil dragon Satan.

  The cancer of evil attacked every organ in my body.  It harassed my body with waves of pain and my
soul spiraled into heaven.  I won my battle and held my ground against the evil dragon Satan.  I did not
sway from my beliefs and those who watched me in the throws of death repented of their sins and later
followed me to heaven.

  Be Brave All Christians throughout the world you are defeating the evil dragon Satan.  Stand your
ground and win your battle for Jesus Christ and heaven.

  I preached the word to many who refused to see that Jesus Christ was our Savior.  The people who
listened changed their lives and added others to God's kingdom.  I lost my life in service to Christ and
now I have a magnificent palace in Heaven.  So be brave my Christian friends raise high your swords
and slay the evil dragon Satan.

  Take up your arms! Stand your ground!  The King of kings is coming soon!

  Philippians 1: 9-11, "I pray that your love will keep on growing more and more, together with true
knowledge and perfect judgment, so that you will be able to choose what is best.  Then you will be free
from impurity and blame on the Day of Christ.  Your lives will be filled with the truly good qualities which
only Jesus Christ can produce, for the glory and praise of God."

  Dear Christians, servants of the Most High God, hold your heads high for the King of kings knows
what kind of people you are and He's coming back for you.  He smiles as He looks into your face as
the great book of remembrance is opened.  The book that records every good work you did during
your lifetime for God in heaven.

  Revelations 20: 11-15,  "Then I saw a great white throne and the one who sits on it.  Earth and
heaven fled from his presence and were seen no more.  And I saw the dead, great and small alike,
standing before the throne.  Books were opened, and then another book was opened, the book of the
living.  The dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books.  Then the
sea gave up its dead.  Death and the world of the dead also gave up the dead they held.  And all were
judged according to what they had done.  Then death and the world of the dead were thrown into the
lake of fire.  Whoever did not have his name written in the book of the living was thrown into the lake of

  I stood before my congregation and spoke with truth about God.  I spent sleepless hours praying for
the people.  I gave hope to those who lost loved ones in war, tragedies of all kinds and sickness.  I
taught people to care about the homeless, poor and jobless of our community.  I held onto my call year
after year and slayed the evil dragon Satan.  

  Ephesians 6:14-16, "So stand ready, with truth as a belt tight around your waist, with righteousness
as your breastplate, and as your shoes the readiness to announce the Good News of peace.  At all

  My four year old grandson looked up towards the sky and said, "Hush grandma, I'm praying."  I
smiled as I looked into his face realizing that it shone with the bright lights of simple child-like faith.  If
only young and old would call upon Jesus' name, all their sins would be forgiven.  And just by believing
they would easily slay the evil dragon Satan.

  Mark 10: 14&15,  "When Jesus noticed this, he was angry and said to his disciples, 'Let the children
come to me, and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  I assure
you that whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.'"

  The children came!  Young and old came giving their lives to Jesus Christ!  Their examples won
others to the kingdom of God.  They chose to fight on the side of good and lifted high their swords to
fight the battle for truth.  Jesus smiled at the people and hugged each one for slaying the evil dragon

and slay the evil dragon Satan.
