God's Police Force

What A Friend We Have In Jesus

"What a FRIEND we have in JESUS,
All our sins and GRIEFS to bear!
What a PRIVILEGE to carry
O what PEACE we often FORFEIT,
O what NEEDLESS pain we bear,
-- Lyrics by Joseph M. Scriven

The Saints (born again believers) are God's police force. He has given the saints authority to bind and loose. If Satan is running rampant among us it is because we are not doing our job policing the area using the spiritual authority we have been given.

"Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven. Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever (anything and everything) they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven. For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I Am in the midst of them." Matthew 18:18-20 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition

"Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to successfully resist and stand your ground in the evil day of danger, and having done everything that the crisis demands, to stand firm in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious. So stand firm and hold your ground, having tightened the wide band of truth (personal integrity, moral courage) around your waist and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (an upright heart), and having strapped on your feet the gospel of peace in preparation to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news. Above all, lift up the protective shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. With all prayer and petition pray with specific requests at all times on every occasion and in every season in the Spirit, and with this in view, stay alert with all perseverance and petition interceding in prayer for all God’s people." Ephesians 6:13-18 Amplified

The purpose of the Whole Armor of God is to be able to stand our ground as we spiritually police the area and thwart Satan and his imps in their activities and schemes. We need to be faithful as spiritual peace keepers. It should be said of us, "Got a problem? Call God's police!"
