Thus, the is imperative the all true soldiers be certain they room in full fight dress uniform, completely equipped because that the battle, and know full well the the enemy is the devil and also his cohorts. It is the utmost prominence that true soldiers the the cross represent the Lord’s values and edicts which reasons Godly adjust and invite rather to enlist in the most elite army in the universe. I urge you now to be completely equipped and ready due to the fact that the fight is on. The lord is depending on his soldiers to continue the fight until victory is won.
