What greater man can the American people have in such a high place of Authority and Responsibility than Lt. General. William G. "Jerry" Boykin. This is a military General that the whole civilized World should look to as a leader and role model through the dark storm clouds of War that is upon humanity.
Ephesians 6:10 - 20 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
General Boykin is famously known as the leader in charge of the failed mission in Somalia that was turned into a film "Black Hawk-Down" in which several Black Hawk helicopters were shot down in a failed mission to arrest a Somali Warlord.
During this event in the midst of battle God spoke to General Boykin and revealed the truth to him that the battle we fight is ultimately the spiritual forces behind Our reality who are driving the forces of Evil in Our reality to destroy God's Kingdom and people on Earth, exactly as Gods Word states.
General Boykin was able to obtain a picture during the course of the mission that testifies to the truth God spoke to him.
As a Christian and a General in the heat of Military battle against Islam his Faith lies in the truth that Elijah the Prophet revealed to us through the Old Testament. General Boykin states that Our God the God of the Judeo-Christian World is real and that Allah is nothing more than an idol.
The Elijah effect
Elijah was Gods Prophet to the Jewish people chronicled in the books of 1 & 2 Kings in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible.
One of the most important acts God demonstrated through him and his Prophetic ministry was when Elijah proved to the Nation of Israel that His God the God of the Jews was the 'One True God' and that all other god's especially the god of the prophets of Baal were false and should be rejected.
Elijah stood alone as the only Prophet of God left in the face of 900 false prophets, 450 false prophets of Baal and 450 false prophets of Asherah. He divided them into two camps and called out to 450 of the false prophets of Baal and set at test for them and their god to show the people the Truth.
The god of the 450 false prophets failed them because it was nothing more than an idol created in their imagination by the devil. Elijah and Elijah alone called out to His God the God of Israel who of course confirmed the Word of His servant and showed the Jewish people that His God and his God alone was real, alive and the God of the Jews. After God proving the Word of His servant, Elijah commanded that the 450 false prophets be captured and then executed.
This one example of Gods providence can be read here:- 1 Kings chapter 18
The Elijah effect is now more than ever relevant in this Our generation as we are being confronted by the false prophets of Islam and their false god Allah which is a creation in the Moslem imagination by the devil.
General Boykin stood firm in his faith in the midst of battle knowing that his God the God of the Judeo-Christian World is real and that all other god's including Allah are idols thus a creation of the devil.
Our god's are not the same as some would like to lead you to believe, 'Allah is an idol...'
There is no middle ground there can only be one true God and those of us who are Christian know that Our God who is the God of the Jews, the God who Elijah called out to is alive and that all other god's are idols.
When we face Islam on any level we must always face them with the Faith of Elijah, Elijah stood alone but knew beyond doubt that his God was real and would always confirm the Word of His servant.
A Closing prayer.
Father I pray to you believing as Elijah believed that you are the one true God, Father of creation and that you sent your Son into this world to die for me and the whole of humanity,
I pray for your strength and protection in the days that lay ahead,
I thank you for all things and give you all of the Glory because all things come from you,
I pray that you will continue to confirm my Words as you did Elijah's,
Your Word states that in the 'End Times' your Spirit will be poured out on all flesh so we all have access to you through Faith in your son Jesus Christ as Elijah the prophet did,
I pray that you will move upon my community of Dunstable and awaken them to the dangers they face from the devil through Islam, and I pray that you will save or remove those who threaten me the most,
I commit my life into your hands and pray for your direction and Grace upon my life,
That you will close the doors that need closing and open the doors that need opening,
Nothing can escape your gaze, I ask that you forgive me of my sins, that you wash me and cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus and set me free from this sin-cursed world.
I commit every action into your hands and pray that you will Glorify yourself through me.
In Jesus name
