When you read of Caleb in the bible what do you think about?
The story of the spies, right

Let's review the story here

1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses saying, 2 "Send out for yourself men so that they may spy out the land of Canaan, which I am going to give to the sons of Israel; you shall send a man from each of their fathers' tribes, every one a leader among them." 3 So Moses sent them from the wilderness of…

Battleground Earth 7: Fire of the Prophetic Voice - David Mitts

Villagers in Israel would not fight; they held back until I, Deborah, arose, until I arose, a mother in Israel. (Judges 5:7)

The Book of Judges gives us an insight into the multi-aspects of God’s nature in the administration of His kingdom through Israel as they transition between Joshua and Kings.

We have looked at the first three judges Othniel, Ehud, and Shamgar. Othniel, the Lion of God, Ehud, the oneness, and Shamgar, the heart towards the stranger have shown us 3 aspects of heart attitudes that affect our ability to walk in between our salvation and into the kingdom authority that is our inheritance. All of this is training in righteousness:

The God of the people of Israel chose our ancestors; he made the people prosper during their stay in Egypt; with mighty power he led them out of that country; for about forty years he endured their conduct in the wilderness; and he overthrew seven nations in…

Battleground Earth 6: The Power of The Stranger - David Mitts

"'For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.'" Mat 25:35-36 (NASB)

In these times of great upheaval, as we face powerful choices that will shape our culture and civilization for times to come, justice is crying out to be heard. From racial divisions to the voice of injured women and damaged children people are forming movements to champion the causes. In the background or maybe it’s truly the foreground of the unborn victims of selfishness screaming for justice and to be remembered in the carnage of death that feeds the monsters of individual demands for “rights” while displaying no compassion for the most vulnerable, the ones with no voice.

At the core of this titanic struggle, the book of …

Battleground Earth 5: The Power to be One - David Mitts

"that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me." Joh 17:21 (NASB)

Last chapter we realized that justice in the earth comes from a recognition that we have an adversary who feeds on conflict. His methods or as the scripture calls them, schemes are oriented around inflaming passions that bring division. These are the actions of the roaring lion who is Satan.

"Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." 1Pe 5:8 (NASB)

Satan is not only a name of a being but a spiritual energy which brings accusation.

"Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down,…

Battleground Earth 4: Judgment Begins at Home - David Mitts

For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1Pe 4:17 NASB)

These are times of great challenges to our sense of justice, right and wrong. People are marching in the streets crying out for justice. Ancient racial evils and hatreds that are beneath the veneer of civilization are being exposed.  Many feel the wrongs and are trying to express their outrage and, in the outrage, create more wrongs.  As we learned as children, two wrongs do not make a right. 

The Lord speaking through the Apostle Peter proclaims that it is the responsibility of the household of God to judge ourselves and be agents of the gospel of God. What does that mean? How can we be in the conflicts and be a light of love and truth in times of great peril to the fabric of our lives?

We begin with learning how-to live-in judg…

Seeing Can Be Deceiving - Charles D Harris

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual [forces] of wickedness in the heavenly [places.] Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. - Eph 6:10-13 NASB

You’d have to be blind in a cave with your head in the sand to not recognize the evil that is manifesting in our world today. Injustice and lawlessness is running rampant and is impacting everyone. How many of you feel very strong emotions of shame, guilt, fear, anger?...the list goes on. With coronavirus and now this presents a sense of hopelessness, loneliness, and the like.
