Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(1 Kings 20)
“Don’t Let The Enemy Escape!”
Text: 1 Kings 20:42
“Then he said to him, “Thus says the LORD: Because you have let slip out of your hand a man whom I appointed to utter destruction, therefore your life shall go for his life, and your people for his people.’ ”
“Don’t Let The Enemy Escape,”
Is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Ben Hadad was the enemy of God’s People, and so was Ahab! Ben Hadad wanted to capture and destroy Israel, and Ahab wanted to abandon his wives, children, and household to wicked Ben Gad and his army. They were both Cowards appointed for destruction, but Ben Hadad would be the first to go down.
Ahab Let his enemy get away because he saw Ben Hadad as his brother of wickedness, Not his enemy. And Ahab would die with shame and cowardice for letting his enemy get away!
Listen up Warrior! Our enemy is “our old man,” and “our old ways as a sinner;” Lust, Pride, Selfishness, and Rebellion against God! This enemy belongs upon the Cross!
When he rises up in you and I, then slap him up on the Cross AGAIN!
Your Rules of Engagement Are Clear - Kill Upon Contact, with confession. Repentance, and Crucifixion!”
I Remind you this morning of this Truth as a Warrior:
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (Gal.2:20)
Let me Remind you of our enemy’s Resume:
“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”(Gal.5:19-21).
Don’t even give a place to the devil (Eph.4:27). You let him have a beachhead and he’ll take the city!
Listen up Warrior! Don’t Let Your Enemy Escape; Deliver The Judgement of God and slam him back onto the Cross Where He Belongs! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
