Lord of Angel-Armies

As the people of God assemble today may they testify and proclaim into the atmosphere that there is One God and His name is Yahweh and He is the Savior of warriorangelHis people and He is Jehovah Sabaoth, Lord of Angel-Armies. 1Sam.17:45 “David answered, “You come at me with sword and spear and battle-ax. I come at you in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel’s troops, whom you curse and mock.  46b …THE WHOLE EARTH WILL KNOW THERE’S AN EXTRAORDINARY GOD in Israel.  47 And everyone gathered here will learn that God doesn’t save by means of sword or spear. The battle belongs to God!” (Msg)


What God Has Put In Us

David n GoliathWe must be careful not to undersell ourselves. All of us have undersold what God has put in us for appointments and we have kept our mouths shut because we have focused on our individual value without consideration for what God has put in us. David’s brothers only considered him as their bothersome little brother when they told him to go back home and tend to those few sheep. Thank God he did not limit himself to the considerations his brothers limited him to. It was evident, when he faced Goliath, where David’s considerations were: “And David said to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of Jehovah of Hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” (1Sa 17:45)   Goliath came against David with only consideration of who he was within himself but David came against Goliath with only consideration of who God was in him.

Profit From Resistance

A body builder by the name of Arnold Schwarzenegger didn’t get that way because God made his environment perfect. He got that way by pumping weight liftingand pressing against iron. Let me say that another way: he worked with resistance. He didn’t stop or go another direction when the great resistance of weighty iron was presented to him.  His experience in resisting iron was that every time he would push the iron up, the iron—through its weight—would push down. He consistently worked with that resistance to build a championship physique whereby he was able to rule in the world of body builders. The perfect environment that brought him through to championship was one of resistance.
