Bible Studies for Belts:A Guide for Christian Martial Arts Vol. 4: Blue Belt (Christian Martial Arts Ministry Bible Studies Book 4)
Prayer for Blue Belt Students
Heavenly Father I thank You and I praise You Lord God for everything that You’re doing, everything that You’ve done, and everything that You will do. Thank You so much for the students who are starting Blue Belt and have had the determination, fortitude, and dedication to continue on in this Martial Arts Ministry.
Heavenly Father I pray Lord that Your Spirit washes over them as water and renews their minds, increases their faith, and gives them hope in the midst of a dark world. Father I pray Lord God right now that you would increase their Faith, that you would strengthen their Faith, and that they would continue to take up the Shield of Faith to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
In Jesus name - Amen
About this Book:
The purpose of this book is to assist those within the American Christian Defense Alliance, Inc. Martial Arts Ministry with a resource to help them better understand the operational framework of the Biblical aspects of our Martial Arts Ministry system and style.
In this book we hope to create unity throughout the Christian Martial Arts world by establishing a set standard to utilize while disciplining students in the faith.
The ultimate goal for any Christian Martial Arts Ministry should be to disciple brothers and sisters in the Lord. There is such an attack on the fundamental principles of the Word of God in this current time that it’s clear to see if we don’t do something then we will lose everything.
Jesus last Commandment was to go and make disciples throughout all of the world. He knew that there was coming a time and day when believers would not walk in sound doctrine. This is why He continually emphasized that we should watch and pray lest anyone deceive us.
There is no greater thing that we can do to help change the situations around us that we find less then desirable than to love those around us and make disciples as the Lord commanded us.
Some may be asking, how do you make disciples? Well the simple fact is we do have an example in Christ. He spent over three years with His disciples, they ate, slept, traveled, and all work together to support the ministry over that time.
The reality is discipleship is a complete immersion into a way of life, in this case the Christian way of life. Martial Arts is merely a tool to enable us to reach those interested in self-defense. We hope that you will join with us and use this book as a reference guide to disciplining believers in the faith. If you are part of the American Christian Defense Alliance Martial Arts Ministry in some way this book is a must have for your Ministry
The operational framework of the Biblical concepts and aspects of our Martial Arts Ministry includes a multilayered system approach.
Specifically we use a three-tiered system which incorporates what we call, “Colors of the Cross” “Learning through Creation” and “Defending Your Faith”. The three-tiered system approach works in harmony together to help solidify a solid operational framework of Biblical principles covered for each belt level.
