In the first part of this series, we learnt that God does not work with volunteers but that He chooses the members of His army by Himself. The same is also true of the selection of officers and promotions in His army. We also learnt that while expulsion is the only punishment for failures, there is royal treatment for those who succeed in His army. In this part, we wish to learn more about this unusual army. May God teach us deep things in Jesus Name. Amen.
- THE ARMY OF THE LORD IS AN UNUSUAL ONE
The army of the Lord is composed of unusual soldiers who are sheep and lambs. An army that does not use guns and bullets and yet are never afraid, even of death. An army of priests, who at the same time are kings, with an ability to hear God’s voice. Their main opponent is the devil who they are prepared to fight non- stop, even though he is invisible.

- THE SOLDIERS OF THE CROSS HAVE A THREE- FOLD
The three-fold assignment of the soldiers of the cross are (i) A ministry to God, through the sacrificing of praises to Him (ii) A ministry to one another, with the strong helping of the weak and (iii) A ministry to the world, bringing them into salvation, deliverance and health.
