to perform the service
Numbers 4:3
men from 30 years old to 50 years old-- everyone who is qualified to do work at the tent of meeting.
Isaiah 63:1-4
Who is this coming from Edom in crimson-stained garments from Bozrah-- this One who is splendid in His apparel, rising up proudly in His great might? It is I, proclaiming vindication, powerful to save.
Why is Your clothing red, and Your garments like one who treads a winepress?
I trampled the winepress alone, and no one from the nations was with Me. I trampled them in My anger and ground them underfoot in My fury; their blood spattered My garments, and all My clothes were stained.
For I planned the day of vengeance, and the year of My redemption came.
Romans 7:14-24
For we know that the law is spiritual; but I am made out of flesh, sold into sin's power.
For I do not understand what I am doing, because I do not practice what I want to do, but I do what I hate.
And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree with the law that it is good.
So now I am no longer the one doing it, but it is sin living in me.
For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For the desire to do what is good is with me, but there is no ability to do it.
For I do not do the good that I want to do, but I practice the evil that I do not want to do.
Now if I do what I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but it is the sin that lives in me.
So I discover this principle: when I want to do good, evil is with me.
For in my inner self I joyfully agree with God's law.
But I see a different law in the parts of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and taking me prisoner to the law of sin in the parts of my body.
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?
1 Corinthians 9:7
Who ever goes to war at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat its fruit? Or who shepherds a flock and does not drink the milk from the flock?
2 Corinthians 6:7
by the message of truth, by the power of God; through weapons of righteousness on the right hand and the left,
2 Corinthians 10:3-5
For although we are walking in the flesh, we do not wage war in a fleshly way,
since the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but are powerful through God for the demolition of strongholds. We demolish arguments
and every high-minded thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
Ephesians 6:10-19
Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength.
Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil.
For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.
This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand.
Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist, righteousness like armor on your chest,
and your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace.
In every situation take the shield of faith, and with it you will be able to extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God's word.
With every prayer and request, pray at all times in the Spirit, and stay alert in this, with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.
Pray also for me, that the message may be given to me when I open my mouth to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel.
Galatians 5:17
For the flesh desires what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit desires what is against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so that you don't do what you want.
Galatians 5:24
Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
1 Timothy 1:18
Timothy, my child, I am giving you this instruction in keeping with the prophecies previously made about you, so that by them you may strongly engage in battle,
2 Timothy 2:3
Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 2:4
To please the recruiter, no one serving as a soldier gets entangled in the concerns of everyday life.
2 Timothy 4:7
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
