The time of battle and wonders is here
1 Chronicles 20:1 -
And it came to pass, that after the year was expired, at the time that kings go out to battle, Joab led forth the power of the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried at Jerusalem. And Joab smote Rabbah, and destroyed it.
We read in the records of Chronicles as in today's scripture that the kings would not mindlessly attack each other any time. We read that there were periods (not season based but over a number of years) that the kings would go out in battle against each other.
To understand this in-depth we need help from a field of Bible study which is an Archeological / Historical Bible study. Since we are on this matter; one of the greatest persons in this field in our times Dr. Ron Charles is coming to India in Nov. 2nd week 2010 for a youth revival program. He does visit India once every year teaching the Bible and proving it technically. I have some of his disclosures on video which are just awesome and hope to broadcast them on TV and will also have them on Youtube. I am leaving with the team as soon as I finish this mail to a place in remote Maharastra where we are expecting to organize this event. We are praying for about 7,500 youth to attend.
In time, we have seen certain period of great spiritual activity and periods of dullness. Even in the Old Testament there were periods when many Men of God existed and great miracles toke place and then there were periods of dullness. It was the period of dullness which was the testing times. These were the times when people would have to encourage themselves with the miracles and wonders which happened during the period of wonders and walk accordingly.
Since long we were in the period of dullness and since past 4-5 years we are walking into a period of great wonders (spiritual war). I always thank God that I was born during this fading of one and coming of the other. In the dull time I got to build my faith and now I get to put it in action.
Are you too ready for the action? There are battles being fought everywhere throughout the world. If you think you will sit at home and witness. Sorry.
Either you go out in to the battle or else the battle will come to you. You cannot be a witness and be passive. For a conquering army, it is better to go into battle and defeat the enemy in their own land than to wait for the enemy to come to your house and then to defeat the enemy.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord Jesus, when You were training your disciples You build them and even send them on test mission before sending them in the actual war field. They were lead in the test mission by just your Word and in the real battle field by also your Spirit. Lord we pray for all your soldiers who are sitting at home and not going out into the battle field, Lord by your Word and your Spirit guide them and reinforce them with power and might...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
