Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Deuteronomy 25:1 - 26:15)
“Amalek Must Be Destroyed”
Text: Deuteronomy 25:19
“Therefore it shall be, when the LORD your God has given you rest from your enemies all around, in the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance, that you will blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. You shall not forget.”
“Amalek Must Be Destroyed,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Amalek is a picture of sin and an abomination to God! It Must Be Destroyed and Blotted Out Of Our Life!
When Israel was coming out of Egypt, the weary stragglers were attacked by Amalek and so God Cursed them and pronounced the judgement of destruction on them for this. After Joshua defeated Amalek God told Israel to remember His Continuous War Against Amalek:
“Then the LORD said to Moses, “Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.” (Exod.17:14).
Can you see the work of “sin”here?
How lust and pride attack the Warrior at a weak moment! How the flesh wars against our spirit continually “as we come out of Egypt’s bondage of sin!
Amalek Must Be Destroyed! Ooooh Rah!
“For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” (Gal.5:17-18).
400 years after Joshua defeated Amalek God told Saul to destroy Amalek and he refused, and at the end of his life he was killed by an Amalakite! (1Samuel 15:2-9; 2Sam.1:1-10).
Listen up Warrior! Our War with Amalek will continue until we graduate from this world and go home. You and I will conquer and crush Amalek Again and Again and Again in the Battlefields of Faith every day!
Let me remind you Warrior:
“Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.
And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.
For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”(Rom.6:11-14). Ooooh Rah!
This Continual War against Amalek is allowed by our Commander so you and I can grow up in the Grace and Knowledge of Our Commander Jesus Christ; daily using His Sword, the Word of God and Our Faith and Trust in God, and Conquer Amalek Again and Again, and Again!
Amalek Must Be Destroyed!
On Graduation Day, you and I Will Rest in our Promised Land of Heaven and Amalek will Be Blotted Out Forever! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
