Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Prepared For War and To Rule”
Text: Numbers 1:2-3
“Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Israel, by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, every male individually,
from twenty years old and above—all who are able to go to war in Israel. You and Aaron shall number them by their armies.”
“Prepared for War and To Rule,”is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God has taken Israel out of Egypt’s bondage in Exodus, and taught them the Law and How to Worship Him in Leviticus; and now in Numbers, God is Preparing them for War and To Rule over their enemies. Israel has been out of Egypt for a little over a year and now for the next 38 years God will organize and train these 603,000 slaves to become Warriors. God’s “Boot Camp,” for Israel was the wilderness between Mt Sinai where they are now and The Promised Land of Canaan, where they are to Destroy their enemies the giants waiting for them. It’s an 11 day journey to Canaan, but it took 38 years for Israel to get there because of their stubbornness and repeated disobedience to God’s Law. God was Preparing them to Obey Him and Trust in Him To Conquer the Giants in Canaan.
God is Preparing You and I for Heaven where we will rule and reign with Him forever; and there will be no Giants waiting there for us to fight.
Our War is not in Heaven it’s here on earth in the wilderness of this world that stands between us and Heaven. Our War is spiritual, and it’s within us in our heart, and outside of us in the wilderness we pass through. Yes, the wilderness is not meant to be a Destination, it’s meant to be a journey, a crucible that Warriors must pass through to become Rulers!It’s Our Boot Camp and Battlefield of Faith that trains us to Rule and Reign over the devil and his crew:
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”(Luke 10:19-20).
We learn to Enforce the Victory that our Commander Jesus Christ has Already Won! We Enforce His Victory over lust of the flesh, lust of the eye, and the pride of life (1John 2:15-17).
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”(Rom.8:37).
We Enforce His Victory by Faith and Obedience, Trusting in the Work of our Helper Holy Spirit in us.
Warriors are being prepared to Rule and Reign with our King and Commander forever.
There’s a Boot Camp for new believers and a Battlefield of Faith for Disciples and Warriors. There’s a crucible of Faith that Warriors must pass through to become Rulers with God Forever!
We Are Being Prepared For War and To Rule! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
