Induction 101 offers new recruits detailed training and the spiritual fundamentals every spiritual soldier needs to understand in order to be successful in the Kingdom of God.

I was astonished one evening when I was surfiing the internet to find I have “stumbled” on a trove declassified military documents. These documents seem to contain almost every conciviable fact concerning our U.S. military proceedures and equipment operations.

During the following hours, and then days, as I poured over the materials, I had trouble understanding why these seemingly sensitive materials had been made available for anyone in the world to read.

It was all there, from the boot camp materials given to new recruits to covert operation proceedures, weapons operations manuals, to the necessary steps that need to be undertaken to overthrow a govenment.



I couldn’t put the materials down. I studied them into the wee hours of the morning. I had difficulty believing that that material had actually been put on the internet. If terriosts had found this material, and no doubt they have, they would have a “heads up” on many of what had been, our present day millitary secrets.
The more I studied, the more I became aware of how so many of these documents contained instructions and materials that parrelled our spiritual warfare.
As I applied the natural to the spirtual, I was ashonished and how it all went together. Now, you can join with me in this in Induction 101 - God's Special Forces.


Beginning in 17OO’s, ministers in the Ford family have demonstrated unwavering courage in standing for the truth.  At a time when the birth of America hung in the balances, J. David Ford’s great, great, great, great, grandfathers, Rev. Reuben Ford and Rev. William Webber volunteered to work with George Washington to insure that religious freedom was included in the new Bill of Rights. During the Revolutionary War and late 1700’s, the Ford family laid it all on the line in their quest for both natural and spiritual freedom.

J. David Ford is a seventh generation minister in the Ford family. In 1970, Brother Ford grasped the family ministry torch and has been holding it high ever since. Over the past 40+ years, his ministry has spanned the globe, impacting thousands of ministers and churches around the world.

No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 2 Timothy 2:4

Yes, God choses who the soldiers in His army will be. He is the Commander in Chief and knows those who are His for this elite calling.

For many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:14

The calling is to all, but only those who fully accept this higher calling and allow God to work His, will and plan into their lives, will join the ranks of "the closen" in God’s army. We think of these rare members in the Body Christ as... God’s Special (chosen)Forces (GSF).

Brother Ford’s mission for the past 27 years, through More Than Conquerors School of Theology, has been to raise up a dedicated, sacrificing, committed army for the Lord. A “spiritual” army, that regardless of the cost, is going forth in the power of the Holy Spirit to engage the powers of darkness for the souls of men around the globe.

God’s Special Forces, are an unparreled, spiritually fighting force,  who are determined to lay it all on the line to make their lives count for the Kingdom of God.

God’s Special Forces, unreservedly give their lives and time to wholly follow the Lord Jesus Christ. Regardless of the sacrifice, knowing they are not fools to give-up what they cannot keep, to gain that which they cannot lose.

God’s Special Forces, are obedient to Christ’s command “to seek first the kingdom of God.” Therefore, they have made the decision that jobs, people, places and things (the nouns of this life),  will never hold them back from fulfilling God’s will and plan for their lives.

God’s Special Forces, are always ready to   be “deployed” to the front-lines, knowing that the very gates of hell can not prevail against them.
God’s Special Forces, are determined to live their lives with no reserves... no retreats... and no regrets.


Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

New recruits understand, that until they allow Christ to conquer their battle “within,” they will never become “spiritually effective” on the battlefields of life. For they know, that God is far more interested in working “IN” them than He is “THROUGH” them. Understanding this important truth, gives them the necessary guidance so they can   “purge” themselves of everything that stands in the way of  God’s will for their lives. Those who live out this truth, will be forever changed.


Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 2 Timothy 2:3

New recruits in God’s army are required by God, to undergo special, extreme spiritual training, so they will  be able to achieve maximum spiritual results.

Members of God’s Special Forces are continually evaluating their character and spiritual progress in their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

If new recruits are to win their spiritual battles, they must be prepared for war. If they are to win the war, they must take the necessary “spiritual steps,” to become mighty spiritual warriors in the Army of the Lord.

We believe that God, knowing the time is short, is raising up a new generation of men and women who are  equipped for spiritual combat, ready to charge forward, to advance the Kingdom of God around the world.


For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body...For the body is not one member, but many. I Corinthians 12: 12-14

God’s Special Forces, are members of the Body of Christ, who take their spiritual walk with the Lord seriously. These are men and women of God, some young, others middle age, and even what some might think of as old, have united together, with a determination to allow the Lord to use them, regardless of the cost.

God’s Special Forces, are filled with spiritual courage to battle the powers of darkness at home and abroad, pulling down spiritual strongholds and coming against spiritual wickedness in the earth. They understand, that there is absolutely no place on the battlefront, for cowards with weak knees and weak hearts.

God’s Special Forces, consider it an honor to present their bodies and living sacrifice. They count this world as nothing, forsaking all, to follow their commander Christ Jesus, whenever and where ever He leads.

God’s Special Forces, perseverance and commitment to the cause of Christ, and disciplined execution of the tasks enables them to be victorious both here in the U.S. and around the world.

And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 2 Timothy 2:2

Spiritual leaders who understand what is transpiring in these last days, are inspiring these God’s Special Forces, by what they “do,” not only by what they say.

These leaders understand that this new generation of Believers, who have become soldiers in the army of the Lord, are fully accepting responsibility for  reaching this generation of souls on the earth.

These leaders know that just as love is the root of missions; sacrifice is the fruit of missions. The will of God is nothing less... nothing more... nothing else.


Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 2 Timothy 2:3

Besides being personally taught by the men and women of God the Lord has raised up to prepare these troops, God’s Special Forces, diligently study the lives of men and women who gave their all to follow the Lord Jesus Christ.

The spiritual-bond which holds members of God’s Special Forces together has been forged over the past twenty plus centuries through the lives and sacrifices of these great spiritual soldiers who were “giants of the faith” before them. These men and women today, are receiving their “marching orders,” their “special assignments,”from the same Commander in Chief of this past “mighty spiritual warriors.”

God’s Special Forces, understand that fulfilling the Great Commission is not merely an option to be considered; it is a “command that is to be obeyed.” If being commissioned by a president is considered a honor, how can being commissioned by the Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?

God’s Special Forces, realize they have but one candle to burn and they would rather let it burn up while bringing light to a land filled with darkness, than in a land flooded with light.

God’s Special Forces, understand that God uses men and women who are weak and feeble enough to lean on Him, so that He may make them strong.

God’s Special Forces, believe that in order to know the will of God, they only need only a Bible, the Holy Spirit and an open map.

Since lost people matter to God, they matter to members of God’s Special Forces who are committed to following the Lord wholly however and wherever He leads, understanding that sympathy is no substitute for action.

If missions is languishing in our lives, it is because the godliness in our life is feeble. The command to go everywhere and preach to everybody will never be obeyed until our will is lost in self-surrender to the will of God. Living, praying, giving and going should all go together.

God’s Special Forces, understand that we are not obedient until we are doing all in our power to take the Gospel to the whole world.

God’s Special Forces, understand that if we take world-evangelization out of the Bible, we will have nothing left... but two covers.


Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12

God’s Special Forces, are not satisfied with experiencing a mere, 30-fold or 60-fold fruitfulness. They have made the necessary choices, so they may  receive a 100-fold reward in this world and in the eternity to come.

God’s Special Forces, understand that this world is of little signifance in God’s scheme of things. If what they do, will not matter one hundred years from now, it really doesn’t matter now.  It is the world to come with Jesus Christ, that is of the utmost importance.

God’s Special Forces, live their lives expecting, one glorious day,  to hear their Saviour say...

“Well done thou good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter now into the joys of the Lord.”  Matthew 25:21
