Rak Chazak Amats!

January 1, 2012 by Cameron Stevens

You can call it a Resolution, Goal, or Aspiration. But when it comes to 2012 and beyond, I will adhere to my CALLING. I am called by God to spread the gospel. I am called to minister to those who don’t have an understanding of what I have been given. I am to live out Matthew 28:19-20. But with this calling comes tremendous responsibility. There are many Christians who are choosing mediocrity. They have chosen to accept the free gift of salvation and do nothing with it. They don’t speak up, they don’t live for Christ, and it’s apparent in their lukewarm lifestyle. I referred to this in a previous post entitled “So Much to say yet nothing’s communicated”. Too many are choosing NOT to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. They simply are content to call themselves “Christian”, but completely ignore the action involved in following Jesus Christ.

This is why I’ve decided to re-ignite my blog with this new theme and title, “Rak Chazak!” It comes from a video that was passed on to me. I would estimate that I have watched/listened to it about 50 times. It never gets old. It only continues to spur me on to my calling as a Christian. Give it a listen, and then I will continue: Ancient War Cry

“We are in a position to see souls set free!” Romans 6:22

“The rock-like ‘oomph’ of the spiritually zealous heart…” Proverbs 23:17

“Chazak is possessing a resolute and growling resolve for the glory of God…” 2 Corinthians 4:6

“A tensing of all a soldier’s muscles.” 2 Timothy 2:4

“Your knuckles, spiritually, should turn white and you should find yourself gritting your spiritual teeth with a belligerence against the enemy…” Revelation 19:11-21

“HE GOES DOWN!” Revelation 20:10

“Amats: It’s rushing headlong into the most hazardous and impossible battles without pausing to consider the impossibilities.” 1 Samuel 17:45-51

“It’s a confidence in victory even before the field is taken.” Judges 15:14-16

“It’s lambs moving with liquid ferocity straight into the lion’s lair.” Joshua 6:1-5, 20-21

“Swift-footed, All-believing, Super-conquering, Prevailing faith in the Lord of battles.” 2 Thessalonians 1:3-11

“Be strong and of good courage!” Deuteronomy 31:6-8

“Even if we die, we win.” Matthew 19:29

“RAK CHAZAK men and women of God Almighty. All the powers of earth and hell that come against your soul, and all the powers of earth and hell that are puppeteering the lost masses, you hit them square in the teeth.” Ephesians 6:10-20

“Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” ~ Joshua 1:6-9

This is my calling. This is my purpose. This is my desire.

    I have introduced this to the mens groups I am leading, it’s such a great and true message. A call to wake up and fight.

    • Great job Stephen! I wish I could take credit for this, but it actually belongs to Eric Ludy. I was simply inspired by it as you were. I pray your men will find the call to action as inspirational and encouraging. Rak Chazak to you and yours!!
