    The British SAS (Special Air Service) are military elite. They have an expression about warfare that is rather intense!

    When in battle, the number one target for the British SAS is the enemies head. A penetration to the head will cause the foe to "Drop like Liquid". This is a core mantra of the SAS. Of all places that can be struck, in battle, the head is the most effective, most rapid and safest way to guarantee a foe cannot fight back, and will not fight back.

    David's single stone from his sling struck Goliath in the HEAD.

    The Helmet of Salvation is the Christians assurance that they are Heaven Bound and in the battle without fear of DEATH, EVER!

    17 Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God's word.

    Notice the level of certainty that the Helmet is real, as imparted by the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9). The Word isn't a scripture or an idea, but Jesus Christ. The imparted Holy Spirit seals us to salvation. The words imparted to mankind and recorded in scripture by the Holy Spirit go to great lengths to EQUIP the saints with certainty, that they are (PRESENT TENSE, SAVED)... (Ephesians 2:8-10 ; Romans 4:1-6).

    When Salvation is being questioned by an individual, the work of Satan is made manifest. Satan is going for a "Head Shot".

    If a Gospel workman is led to question their own Salvation, they will cease to Fight the Battle for the souls of mankind, and begin to hide, in fear of DEATH.

    There is no armor for the Christians BACK, thus a retreating soldier is good for nothing less than arrows and spears. The most common strategy of Satan and his army of demons is to attempt to destroy the Salvational assurance of good Gospel Workman.

    If you doubt in any way, shape or form that your salvation is only contingent on Jesus Christ's work, versus the works of the "old man", you will have "Analysis Paralyses".

    You will be deadlocked by the Enemy, into fixating on your own flesh and the flesh of others. This is instantly a game over for witness. Instead of seeking to share the Gospel, you will be carrying a burden, you yourself, cannot bear. Instead of fixating on Jesus Christ, you will become a vain philosopher of carnal improvement.

    You might as well be Tony Robbins at this point. Don't get me wrong, Tony Robbins has some great stuff to say, but Tony Robbins isn't out to spread the Gospel.

    If I would like to have philosophical, Religious standards to become more "Self Righteous"... I can participate in Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Martial Arts, Hinduism... and the like.

    All religions have Man searching to please God... but only ONE FAITH says "God not only seeks mankind out, but He Clutches and Loves mankind, has Saved any who BELIEVE that He does and is doing so".

    Man says DO. Satan says DO.

    Jesus says "DONE".

    Men and Satan make Slaves!

    Jesus makes SONS!
