Dr. Jack Graham, Senior Pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church said, “The motto of the Marines is Semper Fidelis from the Latin meaning ‘Always Faithful.’…the motto of the Marines should be the motto of the Believer in the Lord Jesus Christ – Always Faithful. ALWAYS – in the Spirit of Christ – faithful in Him.”
Mr. Webster states that a warrior is “a man engaged or experienced in warfare.” The very first prophetic reference to Christ Jesus in Genesis 3:15 tells us that Jesus’ mission was and is to violently crush the head of evil. Jesus himself said in Matthew 10:34 that He ”did not come to bring peace but a sword.” Christ won the greatest battle ever – the battle of the cross.
“Christ came into the world to destroy the works of the devil. And this was the very thing that did it, viz, the blood and death of Christ. The cross was the devil‘s own weapon; and with this weapon he was overthrown, as David cut off Goliath‘s head with his own sword.” Jonathan Edwards, The Works of President Edwards (New York: Leavitt & Allen, 1852)
Jesus is coming back as the victorious – Christ The Warrior King – to violently put an end to evil and take His rightful place on the throne.
“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.” Rev 19:11
Jesus Christ The Warrior King is the only True and Semper Fi Warrior, however, Romans 8:29 tells us that we – believers in Christ - “are predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son.” Exodus 15:3 tells us “The Lord is a warrior…” Are you?
