Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Deuteronomy 25:1 - 26:15)
Text: Deuteronomy 25:17-18
"Remember what Amalek did to you on the way as you were coming out of Egypt,
how he met you on the way and attacked your rear ranks, all the stragglers at your rear, when you were tired and weary; and he did not fear God.”
“Conquering Amalek,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. Because of Amalek’s hatred and continual war against Israel God declared that He would “utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven,” and “…the Lord has sworn that: the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” (Exod.17:14, 16).
Because God has commanded Israel to completely conquer Amalek many scholars see Amalek as a picture of our flesh which constantly battles against our Spirit; which must be conquered, again and again.
“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
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.”(Gal.5:16-17).
The Warrior knows this spirit of Amalek well, that continues to battle against us, especially when we are tired and weary like Israel was coming out of Egypt.
We will have war with this spirit of Amalek continually in this world. With the power of Holy Spirit we will walk in His power and conquer Amalek again and again; growing stronger and stronger, until we go home to our “rest” in heaven.
Then, “God Will blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven forever. Oooooh Rah!
“What a day that will be
When my Jesus I shall see
When I look upon His face
The One Who saved me by His Grace
When He takes me by the hand
And leads me to the promised land
What a Day, Glorious Day, that will be.”
Until that day we will Fight On! We will continue Conquering Amalek every day, growing stronger in our Faith and our Love for our King! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
