NO SWORD IN THE LAND
“Now there was no smith found throughout all the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears:”
1 Samuel 13:19
The enemy knew the only way to prevail over Gods children was to remove all swords form their hand. Not only did the enemy remove all blacksmiths from town, but he replaced the sword with something else to put in their hand. Verse 20 says the enemy sharpened axes, coulters, and mattocks for the children of Israel. No wonder why the children of Israel did not want to fight, they had garden tools in their hand. You can’t fight Goliath with a garden ho! Ha!
The enemy is still using the same tactic in 2019. The Word of God is the sword of the spirit (Ephesians 6). It is quick and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword. ( Hebrews 4:12)
The enemy has successfully removed the sword from our hands and replaced it with things to keep us busy. No wonder why we have no fight in us today! We have everything else in our hand but the sword. The enemy knows as long as we don’t pick up the sword, he will prevail. If we want victory in 2019, we must get the sword back in our hand. Put the iPhone down and grab your bible! Put the remote down and grab your bible! Put the keys down and grab your bible! Put the toys down and grab your bible! Pick up your sword!!! Feel it’s weight and glory, learn how it swings, sharpen its blade, and when the enemy comes this year, you will cuts his head off! 🗡
