There’ll be victory in the camp at the shout of El Shaddai!
Today I wrote the article about China implementing a new system that tracks and scores obedience and enthusiasm to the government and it disturbed me deeply.
As we are faced with increasingly disturbing information on a daily basis and we can see the darkness building like the Orks (Lord of the Rings reference) on the horizon running toward us by the millions, it is more important than ever that we remember who we are in Yeshua/Jesus!
The Bible is full of stories where G_d used just a few to defeat the throngs.
I want to encourage you tonight with the promise in I Samuel 14:6 – ”There is no restraint to the Lord to save by many or by few.” That means that the number doesn’t matter to the Lord. That is saying that the Lord doesn’t have to have a big crowd to get the job done. The question tonight is not how many, but what can God do with a few? The classic illustration in all of history and in all of the Bible of what God can do with a few is the account of Gideon and the 300 men.
For by their own sword they did not possess the land, And their own arm did not save them, But Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your presence, For You favored them. -Psalm 44:3
He loved us so much that He told us what would happen and what to watch for so we could be ready for the return of the King!
We must know that we are already victorious over the forces of darkness, no matter how they snarl or what they try to throw at us.
And no matter what happens, our eyes are not to be fixed on this life alone, but on the eternal. We know it’s going to get rough down here, but we could be the generation that was foretold, the generation that will see amazing signs and wonders from both the forces of evil trying to deceive us by imitating the One True God, and the signs and wonders from God Himself.
We must have discernment; now more than ever!
I am Your servant; give me discernment, That I may know Your testimonies.
As the dark gets darker, the light gets brighter!
Fear is not of God and we must rebuke it!
For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.
As things seem more and more terrifying, we must press in to Him and use the armor He gave us!
Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the devil’s schemes.
Then we will be effective “to the pulling down of strongholds!” (2 Cor. 10:4)
This video is a few years old but it is still so very powerful.
Take a moment to remember that our Saviour sits on the throne eternally and all of the minions from the pits of Hell cannot remove Him and cannot compare to His power!
There WILL be victory in the camp at the shout of El Shaddai!
