This is an expanded version of one of the most popular articles ever published by MorningStar Ministries---the extraordinary history of the Knights of Malta. The exploits of the Knights of St. John during the Middle Ages are some of the greatest stories of courage, endurance and steadfast devotion to a vision since biblical times. Three times, a small band of a few hundred knights took their stand against the most powerful armies of Islam. Outnumbered by as many as a hundred to one, they vowed not to retreat before the enemies of the cross, and they held their ground. Although they endured some of the most terrible sieges and human wave assaults in the history of warfare, when the smoke cleared, their flag would still be flying. They simply could not be dislodged from the ground that they claimed. Though the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but spiritual, there are great and timely lessons for us to learn from the amazing history of the Order of St. John. Epic battles such as they fought must be waged today in the spiritual realm. Great knights of the Spirit are gathering again, vowing to never retreat before the enemies of the cross.
