Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Kings 13:1 - 14:22)
“Keep Shooting Arrows!”
Text: 2 Kings 13:17-18
“And he said, “Open the east window”; and he opened it. Then Elisha said, “Shoot”; and he shot. And he said, “The arrow of the LORD’s deliverance and the arrow of deliverance from Syria; for you must strike the Syrians at Aphek till you have destroyed them.”
Then he said, “Take the arrows”; so he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground”; so he struck three times, and stopped.”
“Keep Shooting Arrows,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
On his deathbed Elisha delivers to King Joash God’s command to destroy Syria. To Model this Prayer Elisha tells Joash to shoot an Arrow out the East Window as “The Arrow of the Lord’s Deliverance.
It was typical in Bible times, that when a nation intended to invade another nation they would cast a spear or shoot an arrow in the land of the other nation signifying their intent to invade! And this marked the beginning of hostility!
Once that arrow had been shot “Many Other Arrows Would Be Shot!” However, Joash only shot three more arrows; and this half-hearted response limited his victory over Syria to three battles. That would not destroy Syria, and this angered God and Elisha.
The term “strike the ground,” was meant to be “shoot the arrows that will strike the ground.”
Listen up Warrior! You and I have an assignment not to destroy Syria, but to Destroy The Works of the devil! (1John 3:8). This Will Require You and I To Keep Shooting Arrows, of the Lord’s Deliverance; our Arrows of Faith! Ooooh Rah!
Shooting these Arrows requires:
Shooting Faith Arrows in the Word of God -
Instruction and Help from Holy Spirit,
Effort and Aim through an open window of opportunity,
And Repeated Until The Target of sin is Destroyed! Oooh Rah!
Keep Shooting Arrows of scripture verses to:
Destroy the works of the devil -
To Gain Wisdom and Understanding -
To Gain Faith - and
To Do More For The Kingdom of God.
Keep Shooting Arrows because The World, The Flesh, and the devil, will not stop their shooting!
Listen up Warrior! YOU Are The Arrow of the Lord’s Deliverance and He Keeps Your Quiver Full Of Arrows and Faith!
Our Mission: Destroy The Works of the devil! Ooooh Rah!
