Basic training of an Ephesians 6 Warrior

First and foremost,
Be confident in the one who presented you with the armor,

Because blood won't be shed but screams will erupt,
as rulers fall off their throne not founded on the Rock.

Secondly, before battle can commence,
things small and large must come into unison,

For order is a command in this army,
Given by the General of all.

Finally, confession,
admit that you don't deserve this thing,
admit that you should be the one being killed by the sword,

Only then will you be able to use it.

See, it's the helmet, the breastplate, the girdle, the sandels, and shield that protect,
But what good is defense if there's no offense to motivate?

So the sword is equally as important,
making the prerequisites more imminent.

So as you line up in preparation,
I stand before you with another proclamation,

To remember who the enemy is!
But never forget your weaknesses.

Testimonies always makes this enemy seem not so great,
And frankly he's already defeated,
But if you turn your back on him for a second,

Well that's just a second too late.

See, it's funny how victories lead to pride,
While our Commander commands us to be humble on the inside,

For our Leader knows all the tricks that the enemy has,
it's us that are left out of the scheme so who are we to think fast?

Free choice? Free will? Beautiful I know,
But taking away that freedom is truly the only way you can grow.

Take it all away in order for something to be given soldier,
Then you'll fight with blood on your hands,

Because the ultimate Warrior has risen.

He slayed Himself in order for us to fight!
See He and the Commander are kind of tight,
They came up with a scheme that only few will understand,

All because They wanted to see YOU where you stand.
