The following encouragement is taken from 2 Chronicles 13-14 in the New King James Bible. My beloved brethren & fellow Americans, there has always been a battle between good & evil, light & darkness, Jesus Christ & the forces of evil in the world under the control of Satan. Today is no different, we find ourselves in a battle against the forces of oppression arrayed against US through the liberals, the left, the MSM, corrupt purveyors of debauchery, and treacherous interlopers in our government. At times the battle may seem to be more than we can handle, and indeed it is! It is wisdom to correctly assess the forces set against US so we can then more astutely attack and abolish the foe!
Tonight, while reading God’s glorious holy Word the Bible, I was encouraged by the scenes set before me during the reign of the kings in ancient Judah. Two kings came against overwhelming forces of evil bent on their destruction; these kings trusted the God they obeyed and experienced a mighty deliverance by their great God and King the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah! May we likewise obediently call upon the name of our Lord God for His deliverance while we array ourselves in battle for the future of the United States of America and fight the good fight against the despicable foes who rage against US within our beloved country. Please read the following passages from God’s Holy Word and be encouraged to look to Him!
1 In the eighteenth year of King Jeroboam, Abijah became king over Judah. 2 He reigned three years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Michaiah the daughter of Uriel of Gibeah. And there was war between Abijah and Jeroboam. 2 Chronicles 13:1-2
God had divided the kingdom of Israel because king Solomon of Israel became disobedient and followed other gods; God preserved for Himself a remnant through the tribes of Judah and Benjamin in Southern Israel named Judah. The apostate northern kingdom, Israel, had been established by God but the king, Jeroboam, refused to follow God and instituted false worship throughout the land. So, the two kings came together in battle in the northern kingdom in Ephraim.
3 Abijah set the battle in order with an army of valiant warriors, four hundred thousand choice men. Jeroboam also drew up in battle formation against him with eight hundred thousand choice men, mighty men of valor. 4 Then Abijah stood on Mount Zemarain, which is in the mountains of Ephraim, and said, “Hear me, Jeroboam and all Israel: 5 Should you not know that the Lord God of Israel gave the dominion over Israel to David forever, to him and his sons, by a covenant of salt? 6 Yet Jeroboam the son of Nebat, the servant of Solomon the son of David, rose up and rebelled against his lord. 7 Then worthless rogues gathered to him, and strengthened themselves against Rehoboam the son of Solomon, when Rehoboam was young and inexperienced and could not withstand them. 8 And now you think to withstand the kingdom of the Lord, which is in the hand of the sons of David; and you are a great multitude, and with you are the gold calves which Jeroboam made for you as gods. 9 Have you not cast out the priests of the Lord, the sons of Aaron, and the Levites, and made for yourselves priests, like the peoples of other lands, so that whoever comes to consecrate himself with a young bull and seven rams may be a priest of things that are not gods?” 2 Chronicles 13:3-9
Notice king Abijah acknowledges and states Israel’s divine history, the history of the deceit of Jeroboam and his apostasy, and the mighty forces that Jeroboam had amassed against him under the control of his false gods. Beloved, we must always remember the great history of our nation, and how God has often shed His beneficent grace upon this land, we must also understand the history of the evil forces trying to destroy America and who they are led by. We must also realize the strength of the forces aligned against US.
10 “But as for us, the Lord is our God, and we have not forsaken Him; and the priests who minister to the Lord are the sons of Aaron, and the Levites attend to their duties. 11 And they burn to the Lord every morning and every evening burnt sacrifices and sweet incense they also set the showbread in order on the pure gold table, and the lampstand of gold with its lamps to burn every evening; for we keep the command of the Lord our God, but you have forsaken Him. 12 Now look, God Himself is with us as our head, and His priests with sounding trumpets to sound the alarm against you. O children of Israel, do not fight against the Lord God of your fathers, for you shall not prosper!”
The southern kingdom of Judah remained faithful to God, obeyed Him and came out against the northern kingdom of Israel in the name of their God. God has many times delivered America from disaster, while also punishing our disobedience. Beloved we need to be faithful to our God by abiding in His truth, which is His Word the Bible, trusting our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ, and warn the fallen and the apostate to turn to and return to the Lord God Almighty, our Savior Jesus Christ! Now we are in a battle for God’s blessing to be upon our nation, while we undo the works of darkness that have troubled the land.
13 But Jeroboam caused an ambush to go around behind them; so they were in front of Judah, and the ambush was behind them. 14 And when Judah looked around, to their surprise the battle line was at both front and rear; and they cried out to the Lord, and the priests sounded the trumpets. 15 Then the men of Judah gave a shout; and as the men of Judah shouted, it happened that God struck Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah. 17 Then Abijah and his people struck them with a great slaughter; so five hundred thousand choice men of Israel fell slain. 18 Thus the children of Israel were subdued at that time; and the children of Judah prevailed, because they relied on the Lord God of their fathers. 19 And Abijah pursued Jeroboam and took cities from him: Bethel with its villages, Jeshanah with its villages, and Ephrain with its villages. 20 So Jeroboam did not recover strength again in the days of Abijah; and the Lord struck him, and he died. 21 But Abijah grew mighty, married fourteen wives, and begot twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters. 22 Now the rest of the acts of Abijah, his ways, and his sayings are written in the annals of the prophet Iddo. 2 Chronicles 13:13-22
Beloved brethren and fellow Americans we must fight against the assault upon our Constitutional Republic relying upon the Lord Jesus Christ to fight with US as we fight the wicked left! Abijah was surprised by the vehement attack, but he cried out to the Lord & His priests sounded the trumpets. Believers need to be upon their knees crying out to Jesus Christ as we FIGHT against this onslaught of fearmongers trying to suppress a fair and honest election. Jill Stein who praises communist Castro should be sued for her frivolous recount efforts! America must defeat these foes who fight against our great nation, our electoral process and our duly elected President! As we defeat them by God’s power and enabling we will see peace and prosperity return to our land.
1 So Abijah rested with his fathers, and they buried him in the City of David. Then Asa his son reigned in his place. In his days the land was quiet for ten years. 2 Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the Lord his God, 3 for he removed the alters of the foreign gods and the high places, and broke down the sacred pillars and cut down the wooden images. 4 He commanded Judah to seek the Lord God of their fathers, and to observe the law and the commandment. 5 He also removed the high places and the incense altars from all the cites of Judah, and the kingdom was quiet under him. 6 And he built fortified cities in Judah, for the land had rest; he had no war in those years, because the Lord had given him rest. 7 Therefore he said to Judah, “Let us build these cities and make walls around them, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us, because we have sought the Lord our God; we have sought Him, and He has given us rest on every side.” So they built and prospered. 8 And Asa had an army of three hundred thousand from Judah who carried shields and spears, and from Benjamin two hundred and eighty thousand men who carried shields and drew bows; all these were mighty men of valor. 2 Chronicles 14:1-8
Because Asa’s father Abijah had faithfully fought against the infidels within the land and prevailed by God’s great power, Asa reigned during peaceful and prosperous years building and fortifying Judah. His work was led of God and protected the nation against an attack from outside forces. Our military, infrastructure and nation have suffered greatly under the presidency of Barak Obama. America rejected his last eight years by electing Donald J Trump, under his leadership we can experience a great turn around for our nation. America and Americans must overcome the evil leftist forces in our nation trying to destroy our country and who have made US vulnerable to attacks both foreign and domestic. This is serious business; we must pray and work diligently to see it all turned around! Like king Asa and Judah America must live lives of integrity, honesty and goodness with one another.
9 Then Zerah the Ethiopian came out against them with an army of a million men and three hundred chariots, and he came to Mareshah. 10 So Asa went out against him, and they set the troops in battle array in the Valley of Zephathah at Mareshah. 11 And Asa cried out to the Lord his God, and said, “Lord, it is nothing for You to help, whether with many or with those who have no power; help us, O Lord our God, for we rest on You, and in Your name we go against this multitude, O Lord, You are our God; do not let man prevail against You!” 12 So the Lord struck the Ethiopians before Asa and Judah, and the Ethiopians fled. 13 And Asa and the people who were with them pursued them to Gerar. So the Ethiopians were overthrown, and the could not recover, for they were broken before the Lord and His army. And they carried away very much spoil. 14 Then they defeated all the cities around Gerar, for the fear of the Lord came upon them; and they plundered all the cities, for there was exceedingly much spoil in them. 15 They also attacked the livestock enclosures, and carried off sheep and camels in abundance, and returned to Jerusalem. 2 Chronicles 14:9-15
Judah was attacked by overwhelming forces, but God brought about a great deliverance and victory for Judah. Beloved all the harm the left has done the last eight years under Barak Obama may seem overwhelming but as we look to the Lord Jesus Christ relying on His deliverance while we fight we can overturn all the evil we see extant in the land and then gather in the resources set aside for evil purposes and instead use them for good. There is so much encouragement for US in this passage out of the Old Testament. Of a truth, God’s Word is a great encouragement to our hearts as we fight against evil in the land relying upon Him to deliver US from evil. Faithful believers in Jesus Christ let us work for the prosperity, peace and healing of the United States of America through obedient faith and reliant prayer.
Dear Lord Jesus Christ we ask that You not allow our enemies to prevail against Your beloved children and this mighty nation. We ask that You would give US the victory over its foes and keep your children safe who live here. We praise You and trust You to save US. Amen!
“Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.” 1 Samuel 17:47
