I am Master Ray, 6th Degree black belt. At our school we teach a variety of martial arts styles combined in one curriculum. We provide a Christian family atmosphere and we are the only Christian Martial Arts Ministry in St. Louis, MO.
“For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
There are two fighting styles in the world the fighting style of a chicken and the fighting style of an eagle. Those who fight from their own resources and live for the world are like chickens and those Anointed Fighter's who depend only on the finished work of Christ are like eagles.
The only time chickens are referred to in the Bible, Jesus used them as a type of those fighters in Jerusalem who could not hear His training nor heed His call. They traveled in gangs, in broods, and their fighting style was bound to the earth. They kept their eyes upon the things of this world, trying to survive each round of the fight, and never lifted their heads out of the cage of life to see Him who is from heaven. They are bound to their sinful fighting style, and are satisfied.
However, not the Anointed Fighter whose' fighting style is like an eagle. For he has inherited a nature through Christ, that cannot and will not tap out in the confining captivity of the cage of life. To be happy and to fulfill his champion purpose in the good fight, he must be free to soar in the wide-open spaces among the clouds of heaven. It seems lonely up there, for there are not many fighters who will dare to rise to such heights, but the Anointed Fighter does not care, for it is not in his nature to train with the world or the majority. What type of fighter are you?
Remember, it is called a fight for a reason. However, we fight from victory not for victory. Keep Fighting!
