ENEMIES FROM THE PAST-2
1Samuel 17:4 “And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.”
Beloved, look inwards, there are things you must “destroy” today so that Goliath will not show up tomorrow.
That backbiting, anger, resentment, fornication, lies and those other sins that seems insignificant today are what will metamorphose into destroyers tomorrow, if not properly checked and dealt with today.
Don’t let the devil plant things in your life which you just decide to ignore today. Hear this:
Matthew 13:25 “But while men slept his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way”
The devil, immediately he succeeds in sowing tares, he goes away because he knows it is just a matter of time before the tares grow into giant oak trees that will become almost impossible to uproot.
James 1:15 “Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
James 1:15 “Lust gets pregnant, and has a baby: sin! Sin grows up to adulthood, and becomes a real killer.” (MSG)
The devil is very tactical and strategic when he fights. James 1:15 shows us the progression of sin till it becomes a real killer. As a believer, don’t fall for the tricks of the enemy. Everybody that is suffering from major crisis in life today was once warned yesterday!
Samson was the most powerful man in his days. He was warned not to marry from a gentile nation but guess where he was destroyed? Gaza!
Judges 16:1 “Then went Samson to Gaza, and saw there an harlot and went in unto her.”
Judges 16:21 “But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.”
Gaza and Gath are sister towns of the Philistines. Joshua spared Gaza and Gath and Goliath was born.
Beloved, it’s high time you destroy every semblance of these cities in your life today!
