Military in the bible includes a Roman Centurion who was a devout man, God as military leader, and Peter being chained between two soldiers when an angel of the Lord rescued him.
Acts 10:1, 2, 22 1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, 2 a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always.
God, a military leader
Judges 3:1, 2 1 Now these are the nations which the Lord left, that He might test Israel by them, that is, all who had not known any of the wars in Canaan 2 (this was only so that the generations of the children of Israel might be taught to know war, at least those who had not formerly known it),
Peter chained between soldiers, angel rescued
Acts 12:6, 7 6 And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and the guards before the door were keeping the prison.
7 Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his hands.
Soldiers of Christ
2 Timothy 2:1-4 1 You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. 3 You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.
Soldiers pierced Jesus’ side
John 19:34 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.
War in heaven
Revelation 12:7 7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,
Soldiers pierced Jesus side and water and blood fell out. There will be a war in heaven in which Michael and His angels will fight with the dragon and his angels. When the war in heaven occurs no one engaged in warfare will entangle himself with the affairs of this life, so that he may please Him who enlisted him as a soldier.
