Psalm 138:7

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.”


The first light broke the dawn with a hue of color on February 21st, 1968, in Hue, South Vietnam. It was the Tet Offensive. D Company, 2/501st Infantry and the 101st Airborne, were assaulting a strong enemy Viet Cong position when they began to receive heavy fire from different directions. Rockets blazed through the jungle, and the sound of machine guns and other automatic weapons pounded through the air. Company D’s advance on the enemy halted by a stream where their squad leader, Sgt. Hooper, figured out their plan of attack. Hooper gathered a few of his men and dashed across the stream, leading the way right into the face of enemy fire.


Sgt. Hooper and the men quickly took a bunker where the enemy fire was coming from. Soon, the rest of Company D began to follow Sgt. Hooper’s example, taking the fight to the enemy. After several of the soldiers were wounded and caught in more enemy fire, without a second thought, Sgt. Hooper ran into the crossfire to save his fallen comrades. Sgt. Hooper later became the most decorated soldier of all time, including receiving the Medal of Honor.


What the church needs today is more men and women who will bring the spiritual fight to the enemy; not just slump back in fear of living a life displeasing to God, but fearlessly taking the banner forward and proclaiming victory over the things that beset us. Raising children in the fear of the Lord, living lives pleasing to God, and raising a standard on the Word.


Keep fighting a good fight today, because our heavenly reward is not worthy to be counted to the suffering we experience in this life. Stand toe-to-toe with satan and claim the victory. Keep fighting a good fight.


53-1203 - “Testimony (Raising Dead Boy)”

You've got to go do it. And you've got to fight for every inch of ground that you have. Every man in here that's born again of the Spirit of God, knows that you've had to fight for every inch of ground, toe the mark with Satan. Isn't that right? Friends, this is not a picnic. This is a battleground. See? We never come here to—to eat cookies and—and so forth. We're in a battle. Could you imagine the United States Army training a man to set around, and eat cookies, and so forth? Why, he gives him a uniform, and his gun, and trains him to get out there and fight and defend the nation. And that's what we've got to do. We've got to defend our God-given rights. What God said, it's ours. Let's stand right toe-to-toe with Satan.
