Psalm 144:1 

David wrote: "Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle..."


 “.........Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”

Isaiah 6:8  

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? ”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Matthew 5:9

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of GOD!
