Scripture: Revelation (NIV) 19:14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine lined, white and pure, were following him on white horses.
15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron…
Revelation (NIV) 19:20 …These two (the beast and the false prophet) were throne alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.
21 And the rest were slain by the sword that came from the mouth of him who was sitting on the horse…
Observation: Some time back I wrote a SOAP about Jesus’ place was out front in this battle. Today I hear the Lord emphasizing that our place is following. This battle was not won by hand to hand fighting of the armies, but by the sword of the Commander-in-Chief!
Application: I am wondering how many battles I fought because I did not wait for His orders and ran ahead of my Commander-in-Chief. If I would have just been patient and followed His lead, I might have arrived at the battle field to find that the battle was already won.
When I go into battle I always want the Lord between me and the enemy. When I look at the enemy, I want to see my Lord in between. I never want to be in a place where I have to turn my back on my enemy to look at my Lord!
Prayer: Lord, I can trust you to lead me into battle. I can trust your wisdom and strength and ability. You are both a lover of peace and a Man of war! Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
