State of the Union: 2 Kings 6:17

State of the Union: 2 Kings 6:17


I've been wanting to write this article for several months, and it never quite came together right.

Today it finally did.  

I want to talk to you about the State of our Union…..the state of America.

Trending: Caught: Did Biden Wear A Wire During The Debate?

How does it look?

Grim?

Like hope is lost?

Like 2020 has been the worst year many of us have ever lived through, at least collectively?

Does it look like we have so many enemies that can't possibly be defeated?

– The Crooked Media

– The Crooked Democrats

– The Deep State

– George Soros

– Bill Gates

– Viruses

– Untrustworthy vaccines

Should I go on?

I probably don't need to spend any time convincing you of any of that.

So I won't.

I'm here to encourage you.  

But not with false hope….I'm here to give you true inspiration, based on a solid rock.  

There is an awesome song called Surrounded that I will link below.  

Here are some of the lyrics:

It may look like I'm surrounded

But I'm surrounded by You

This is how I fight my battles

You see, here's what's really interesting.  

In the Bible, God always sent the worshippers out on the frontlines of battle.

No armor.  No shields.  No weapons. 

Just musical instruments....and worship.

I wrote more about that in an article I called: 

A Call For Worship as Warfare…

But here's a brief recap.

Did you know that whenever YHWH instructed Israel on how to fight a battle he would tell them to send the worshippers out on the front lines?

That makes no sense. 

You're gonna send a guy with a flute and a guy with a guitar out on the most dangerous front line?

It's true.

Check this out from 2 Chronicles 21-24:

21 After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang: 

“Give thanks to the Lord;
    his faithful love endures forever!”

22 At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves. 23 The armies of Moab and Ammon turned against their allies from Mount Seir and killed every one of them. After they had destroyed the army of Seir, they began attacking each other. 24 So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped.

Interesting battle tactic!

And they won without lifting a single sword.  

Remember Joshua at Jehrico?

Do you remember how the walls fell?

With praise and worship and a loud shout.

Joshua 6:20:

20 When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone charged straight in, and they took the city.

And backing up a little bit earlier from Joshua 6:6, who was on the front of the army?  

The TRUMPet players:

So Joshua son of Nun called the priests and said to them, “Take up the ark of the covenant of the Lord and have seven priests carry trumpets in front of it.” And he ordered the army, “Advance! March around the city, with an armed guard going ahead of the ark of the Lord.”

From Acts 16:25-26, what did Paul and Silas do when they were locked up in prison?

Worship as warfare.

25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.

State of the Union

So what does all of that have to do with the State of our Union?

The state of our world?

The state of America?

Everything.  

I want to open up your eyes to a reality you may not be seeing right now.

In the midst of every weapon being through against us, I want to tell you something very important: 

"Those who are with us are more than those who are with them."

That's a quote directly out of the Bible, 2 Kings Chapter 6.  

It's a wild chapter.  

Floating ax heads, chariots of fire.  

All sorts of stuff.

But here's the part of the story I want to tell you about.  

Elisha was a prophet in Israel and the King of Aram was furious with Elisha.  

So he sent a great army to Dothan where Elisha was staying to capture Elisha.  

The Bible says he sent "horses and chariots and a great army".

When the City of Dothan is surrounded by the army, a servant runs up to Elisha panicked and says "What shall we do?"

Basically, he thought they were already defeated. 

And by the looks of what they could see, they were.

Sound familiar?

Sound like our year?

Does it feel like the Deep State is getting away with all of their crimes?

HERE'S THE PART I WANT YOU TO HEAR.....

Elisha looked at him and asked the LORD to open the servant's eyes so he could see in the spirit realm and when he did the man saw the entire hillside was covered in God's Chariots of Fire, commanded by Angels as far as the eye could see.

That's where the quote comes from.

Elisha could see what the rest of them couldn't see.

In the natural, he looked outnumbered.

But Elisha could see much more and he knew there were a vast number more with him than against him.  

Here's the full story, read it in context:

8 Now the king of Aram was warring against Israel; and he [c]counseled with his servants saying, “In such and such a place shall be my camp.” 9 The man of God sent word to the king of Israel saying, “Beware that you do not pass this place, for the Arameans are coming down there.” 10 The king of Israel sent to the place about which the man of God had told him; thus he warned him, so that he guarded himself there, [d]more than once or twice.

11 Now the heart of the king of Aram was enraged over this thing; and he called his servants and said to them, “Will you tell me which of us is for the king of Israel?” 12 One of his servants said, “No, my lord, O king; but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the words that you speak in your bedroom.” 13 So he said, “Go and see where he is, that I may send and take him.” And it was told him, saying, “Behold, he is in Dothan.” 14 He sent horses and chariots and a great army there, and they came by night and surrounded the city.

15 Now when the attendant of the man of God had risen early and gone out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was circling the city. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! [e]What shall we do?” 16 So he [f]answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the Lord opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 18 When they came down to him, Elisha prayed to the Lord and said, “Strike this [g]people with blindness, I pray.” So He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha. 19 Then Elisha said to them, “This is not the way, nor is this the city; follow me and I will bring you to the man whom you seek.” And he brought them to Samaria.

I wanted to find an image to really show you this, but all I can find are cartoon versions from kid's Sunday School.  

But I promise you it was so much more than that.

And that's what I'm here to tell you right now.  

On this day, September 13.....as it looks like the Deep State and Mainstream Lying Media have America circled with the Democrats and Joe Biden serving as their patsy.....

As it looks grim for our country....

I'm here to tell you I can see the truth and there are SO MANY MORE with us than against us!

The Host of Heaven's Armies stands with Donald Trump and the patriots of this great country!

I believe that's why he has stayed alive so long and survived every assassination attempt.

I believe it's why nothing seems to stick to him or slow him down.

I believe it's why he's the ONLY President I have ever seen who 4 years into the job looks YOUNGER than he did starting out!

Almost every other President I have ever watched in my life looks like they age 5 years for every 1 year in office.

Not Trump.  

Because God is with him.  

Which reminds me of Psalm 27:3:

Though an army encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear;
though war arise against me,
yet I will be confident.

Sound like anyone you know?

My friends, there are ARMIES of angels posted by the God of Heaven himself fighting battles on our behalf that you can't see in the natural.  

But they most certainly are.

And I know how this story ends....

WE WIN IN THE END!  

I believe we will win on November 3, 2020 and I also believe most certainly we win in the end!
