FEARLESS LOVERS 6-17-22 VIDEO
As the Lord raises up a new army of believers there will be two major characteristics, lovers of God and fearlessness. Every step we take towards God is an offensive act against the enemy. When we love God with all our hearts, souls, mind and strength we literally are taking new ground from the enemy. Fearless people give courage to others. They inspire others to move forward. We are an Army of lovers. Loving God makes you able to love your neighbor.

EPH 6:12 People are not the enemy, to target one another is to engage in the wrong combat. We represent the authority of the victory of Christ in the spiritual realm.

5 Every lofty idea and argument positioned against God's knowledge of us, is cast down and exposed to be a mere invention of our own imagination. We arrest every thought at spear point - anything that could possibly trigger an opposing threat to our redeemed identity and innocence is taken captive. The caliber of our weapon is empowered by the revelation of the ultimate consequence of the obedience of Christ.
6 Our ears are fine tuned to echo the voice of likeness that resonates within us. We are acquainted with the articulate detail of the authentic language of our origin. MIRROR
