There is one motto that separates the spiritual warlord from the weak, powerless Christian. One war cry that makes the difference between governing in the spirit realm and constantly being “under.”
And since we as Christians are not called to be under the weather, under attack, or under the circumstances–but are instead called to dominate the earth for the glory of God–I propose that we all adopt this war cry today.
What is the war cry of the warlord? Simply this, from Romans 3:4:
Let God be true but every man a liar!”
See, our level of power in this life is really dependent on how much we believe God. We have to understand that God is not a man, that He should lie. Numbers 23:19 tells us:
God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”
God is Who He says He is, and He will do what He says He will do. Every time.
It's not just because He wants to, either. The same way that Jesus Christ IS the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6), God IS also Truth, and Purity, and Integrity, and Righteousness.
It's Who He is. It's His substance. It's what He is, through and through. He cannot be anything else.
That means that God doesn't keep His Word to you simply because He wants to (although of course He does want to). He keeps His Word to you because TRUTH is Who He is. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE for Him to do anything else BUT keep His Word to you.
So the spiritual warlord decides to believe what God says, no matter what.
- Bad report from the doctor? “Let God be true, but every man a liar! God sent His Word and healed me! By the stripes of Jesus I am healed!”
- Bad report from your bank account? “Let God be true, but every man a liar! My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus!”
- Someone trying to smear your reputation? “Let God be true, but every man a liar! God shall deliver me and honor me! They that wait upon the Lord shall NOT be put to shame!”
No matter what the outward circumstances appear to be, the banner of faith over the warlord's life is this:
“Let God be true, but every man a liar.”
You see, this Gospel of Jesus Christ is no weak gospel.
A weak gospel is no Gospel at all. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a Gospel of power. It's a Gospel of forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and ruling and reigning. It's a Gospel of transformation, healing, redemption, and restoration.
But in order to experience any of these things, we must believe God. James 1:6-8 tells us that we won't receive anything from God if we don't ask in faith:
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”
It's all about faith. We were saved through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8). We receive the seal of the Holy Spirit by faith. We receive all of God's promises by faith.
And the only way we can walk in victory in this life is through faith.
So let God be true, but every man a liar!
When you go to battle today, let this be your war cry. No matter what you're going through today:
- Find God's promises for your situation and believe them.
- Confess God's promises out loud.
- Command God's will into every situation using the power of your spoken word.
- And if you don't have faith yet, read your Bible until you do. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
Dear warlord, as you read this, let faith arise in your soul and spirit.
Let the Word of God be the ruling force in your life. Kick doubt and unbelief to the curb by embracing everything our Father says He is, and everything He says He will do. God is not a man that He should lie, and all of His promises are “Yes” and “Amen” (2 Corinthians 1:20).
If you will make this your war cry, you will experience victory in every area of your life. Not because you do everything right… but because He IS everything right. Let God be true, but every man a liar.
