Scriptures For Soldiers
May the Word of the Lord strengthen and comfort you.
Have I not commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid,
neither be thou dismayed:
for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Ye shall not fear them:
for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.
And the Lord, he it is that doth go before thee;
he will be with thee,
he will not fail thee,
neither forsake thee:
fear not, neither be dismayed.
Be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the Lord.
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
My flesh and my heart faileth:
but God is the strength of my heart,
and my portion for ever.
Seek the Lord, and his strength:
seek his face evermore.
And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
II Corinthians 12:9
SUPPORT OUR VETERANS, AFTER ALL THEY WERE THERE WHEN YOU NEEDED THEM! PASTOR DEAN IN IRAQ
Let's not forget the blood that was shed for this great nation. Let's not forget the men and women that have died and made the sacrifice so we can have the freedom to love, to worship, and to excercise our faith.FlyHigh Ministries salutes all the soldiers who have made such a sacrifice. Let's not forget the Sacrifice that Jesus made on the Cross that allowed us to have fellowship with the Father.
1John 4:9-10 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we love God, but that He love us and sent His Son as an atoning Sacrifice for our sins.
Morality in the Army
Congress was apprehensive about the moral condition of the American army and navy and took steps to see that Christian morality prevailed in both organizations. In the Articles of War, seen below, governing the conduct of the Continental Army (seen above) (adopted, June 30, 1775; revised, September 20, 1776), Congress devoted three of the four articles in the first section to the religious nurture of the troops. Article 2 "earnestly recommended to all officers and soldiers to attend divine services." Punishment was prescribed for those who behaved "indecently or irreverently" in churches, including courts-martial, fines and imprisonments. Chaplains who deserted their troops were to be court-martialed.
