Join the Army

Numbers 1:30 - Of the children of Zebulun, by their generations, after
their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number
of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to
go forth to war;

The Communist countries and even the State of Israel have this rule,
that every person or at least one person of the family needs to join
the army after a certain age. These countries have this rule because
they consider themselves always at war threatened by other countries.
If there was total peace then even these countries would do away with
just a rule.

We live in the Kingdom of God which is always at war, always attacked
by this world and forces controlling the hearts of the people of this
world. It was due to this that the Lord made this rule of dedicating
oneself after a certain age.

In the Old Testament it was joining the Israelite army at the age of
twenty, which was later increased to thirty at request. It was this
reason Jesus also started fully dedicated Himself to the work of the
Kingdom of God after the age of thirty.

The Old Testament being the shadow, we too need to join the army after
a certain age but this army is not any earthly army but the army of
the Kingdom of God. This army on earth is led by the Rider on a white
horse, Who's name is WORD OF GOD.

Since the 15th Century we see the Rider on the white horse moving on
earth increasing His army over the ages. It was in the 15th Century
due to circumstances created in Turkey the monks who had the
manuscripts (the original text of the Bible) were forced to translate
the scriptures and give unto common man so has to kept the scriptures
alive since they had had to abundant they safe monastery. We even see
true evangelizing of the Kingdom of God started around this period.

Today this army has grown leaps and bounds but yet is on the lookout
for more and more to join it since it is threatened more by the enemy.

It was not that Jesus did miracles and taught people only after the
age of thirty, He already had disciples or following of people even
before the miracle of water to wine (grape juice) at the wedding at
Cana. It was only when He had completed His commitment towards his
large family in which He was born (since Joseph was not alive Jesus as
the eldest needed to support this family); He dedicated Himself to
God’s work.

We too are required to dedicate ourselves to this army of the Kingdom
of God once we complete our duty towards our earthly family. We may be
doing God's work even today, but yet it is all together another matter
wherein which we dedicate ourselves totally to God's Army.

Today, I do my two bits of work in the Kingdom of God and also am a
vessel for the Lord to provide for my family, but am aware of that one
day in the future I will be totally dedicated to this Army doing the
work for the Kingdom of God, once I am finished with my duty towards
my family.

The joining age of twenty or thirty is not our physical age but our
spiritual age, age of maturity. Are we spiritually mature and done
with our earthly duties, then the Army of God is waiting for us.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You created this world with a purpose, not just to exist and
become vanity. Your plans are good and for the goodness of mankind.
Reveal to your people your purpose so that they too will walk in your
ways and not struggle in this world. Use us O Lord for your Kingdom
and for your glory...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Numbers 4:23
23 From thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shalt thou
number them; all that enter in to perform the service, to do the work
in the tabernacle of the congregation.

John 2:1-2,11
1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the
mother of Jesus was there:
2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and
manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

Revelation 19:11-16
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat
upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth
judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many
crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is
called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white
horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should
smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he
treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING
