||Ancient Indian warriors, who once roamed free
across this great continent, would encourage one another with
these words, "It is a good day to die," as they rode
into battle. The Indian warrior knew in his heart that he was
the only line of defense and protection for his tribe. The survival
of his people depended on his abilities and willingness to lay
down his own life in battle for those he loved. To become a
skilled warrior required a tremendous desire and determination.
The pathway of this most honored position within the tribe was
filled with hardships and discipline, which began at a very
early age and produced purity of life’s calling. Our ancestors
understood the need for purity of the heart and life, symbolized
by the many purifications rites, was a critical necessity upon
which success in battle depended. The Ancient Warrior was keenly
aware that life did not only exist according to the natural
or what his five senses told him, but he knew that life also
had a spiritual dimension that had a very significant impact
on the outcome of events in the natural, and that purification
of his heart and life was a key to tipping the balance of these
spiritual forces in his favor.
YAHWEH, Our Almighty God, has put within the Indian heart
a gifting of courage to wage war and fight the good fight,
even unto death. As the history of this land reveals, it was
this very gifting which caused the American Indian to be oppressed,
humiliated, and incarcerated on the present day reservations.
Since the day the dust settled from the last of the "Indian
Wars", this gifting has been a source of frustration
and hopelessness for countless thousands of young Indian men.
This hopelessness has driven many thousands of Native peoples
into the deeper bondages of alcoholism and drugs with premature
death, and a Christ-less eternity as their only reward.
Today however, the Lord of Hosts, Yeshua is His Name, is
about to do a new thing. He is about to break the yoke of
bondage to hopelessness and despair in the hearts of Native
Americans throughout this land by reviving in them this gifting
of a warrior's heart." This time, though, He intends
to consecrate by His Blood and use this gifting for the redemptive
purposes of His Kingdom.
Think of it!! Countless thousands of young Native Americans
brought to a newness of Spirit-life, and given the vision
of becoming "Mighty Warriors" with the Lord Jesus
Christ as their indwelling, Great Warrior Chief and partnering
together with all ethnic peoples of the world to advance the
Kingdom of God. What would be the result of such a mighty
move of the Great Holy Spirit of God? This is the glorious
vision that Yeshua has birthed within the heart of Day Chief
