ELISHA AND THE ARMY OF ANGELS




                                               ELISHA AND THE ARMY OF ANGELS

When the servant of the man of God rose early and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was around the city.  Elisha’s servant said to him.  Alas, my master!  What shall we do?  Elisha answered.  Fear not; for those with us are more than those with them.  Then Elisha prayed, Lord I pray You, open his eyes that he may see.  And the Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round abut Elisha.”  II Kings 6: 15-17 (The Everyday Life Bible Amplified Version)

The Prophet, Elisha, wanted to give his servant assurance not to be afraid because those with them, God’s holy angels, were more than the army they could see with their physical eyes.  God opened the servant’s eyes and he saw the army of angels that would protect them and give them victory.

When I think of the words, that there are more of them than those with the other army, I reflect on the power of a few that seek to intimidate and cause others to be fearful.  There are more of us that do not want some of the things and agenda’s that some in the world are trying to force upon us.  There are more of us than there are of them so why are we afraid?  Why don’t we make our voices heard?  Why are we in the shadows not wanting to offend anyone?  Jesus came into this world and He offended many but He was and is the Truth.  He faced opposition for His views.  They were not the popular views at the time but He stood for the Truth and so should each one of us.  Yes, there are many voices out there and they need to be heard but the problem is that other voices are shut down.  

Jesus said, “I tell you that if these keep silent, the very stones will cry out.” Luke 19:40 (AMPC) Why did Jesus say that even the stones would cry out?  I think He meant that even the earth would cry out the truth of Who God is and what the Truth is.  The earth is the LORD'S, and all it contains, The world, and those who dwell in it.”  Psalm 24:1 (New American Standard Bible)  

We, as believers, need to speak the Truth in love.  We need to stand and not give in to the cancel culture of our time.  In my last blog, “When The Church Is Silent,” I talked about those who stood in the midst of opposition.  People such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Corrie ten Boom, Dietrich Bonhoeffer as well as many others were not afraid to speak up even to the point of death in some cases.

Why is there so much opposition?  I believe it is because many people are afraid to push back or speak out.   Remember there are more of us than there are of them. Stand for the truth and do not be deceived by those that would seek to steal who you are in Christ and your identity given by God.

“What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” Romans 8:31 (New Living Translation)

CREATED IN GOD'S IMAGE

We are created in the image of God.  We are a resemblance of God created to manifest His glory thoughout the earth.  When God created Adam and Eve, it appeared that He wanted to share His love and be loved, and He loved mankind so much that He gave him a will of his own.  God did not create robots but people with a free will who would choose right from wrong and also choose to love or be loved by their Creator God.

Adam and Eve forfeited their identity when they fell into the trap of decepton when Satan convinced them that if they ate of the forbidden tree that they would become like God.  Satan has been trying to steal our identity since the Garden of Eden.  "And he (Satan) said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?"  Genesis 3:1  (The Every Day Life Amplified Bible)

He even tried to steal Jesus's identity when he said, "If you are God's Son....."  Matthew 4:3  All the evil one needs to do is pu…
