“Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down. And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.” (2 Kings 1:9-11)

As Generals in God's army there are many things that we cannot do. Like the Prophet Elijah, we must refuse to come down. Like the Apostle Paul, we must continuously be conscious of the fact that: "Others may but I may not."

We will see fellow "Christians" all around us doing different things which we know will drain our anointing and break our intimacy with God if we join them. Do you not know that they are not happy every time you tell "God says"? If we join them we will be forced to come down from the mountain top and join them at the valley.

Terrible things happen in the valley. 1. We will fall before our enemies that had previously being subdued by us. 2. Old afflictions and old enemies resurrect and torment one's life. 3. There is oppression, failure, retrogression and defeat. All the old bad dreams start coming back. 5. As Generals in God's army we do not want to be to be wasted spiritually and physically in the course of warfare.

Being a General and remaining at the mountain top requires discipline. It means that you cannot talk anyhow, eat anyhow, or go everywhere. It demands staying at His side nightly for hours seeking His face, reading His word, war faring, interceding, etc. It takes keeping the flesh under through regular fasting and prayers. It entails going away on retreats just to spend days at His side undisturbed. It takes willingness to cut off from our lives anything and anybody that threatens our relationship with our Commander in Chief, JESUS, who is the pillar of our life. It costs time, money, friends and so many other things.

But you know what? If we are willing to pay the price it is an exciting ride at His side. Isaiah 1:19, Psalm 45:7. You remain up there. You never come down to the valley where the witches harass, marine powers pollute peoples destinies, and oppressive dreams are the order of the day.
