Let Us Who Are Christians Trust in the Lord While He Destroys Our Enemies

 

If the good and godly people of this country will trust the Lord and stay strong and pray and worship the Lord , we need not fear—because God will give us justice and protection against those who want to destroy us (with socialism, with endless investigations, with abortion, with illegal immigrants, etc.).

In five different situations in the Scriptures you will find that God dealt (or will deal) with Israel’s enemies by confusing them, confounding their strategy, and setting them against each other so that they destroyed each other. And this happened especially when Israel was trusting the Lord and praying to Him. Here are those five situations.

 

Gideon and his 300 men against the Midianites and the Amalekites, (Judges 7:19-23).

So Gideon and the hundred men who were with him came to the outskirts of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, when they had just posted the watch; and they blew the trumpets and smashed the pitchers that were in their hands. 20 When the three companies blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers, they held the torches in their left hands and the trumpets in their right hands for blowing, and cried, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!” 21 And each stood in his place around the camp; and all the army ran, crying out as they fled. 22 And when they blew 300 trumpets, the Lord set the sword of one against another even throughout the whole army; and the army fled as far as Beth-shittah toward Zererah, as far as the edge of Abel-meholah, by Tabbath. 23 And the men of Israel were summoned from Naphtali and Asher and all Manasseh, and they pursued Midian. (bold for emphasis)

 

Jonathan and his armor bearer against the Philistines (1 Sam 14:16-20).

Now Saul’s watchmen in Gibeah of Benjamin looked, and behold, the multitude melted away; and they went here and there. 17 And Saul said to the people who were with him, “Number now and see who has gone from us.” And when they had numbered, behold, Jonathan and his armor bearer were not there. 18 Then Saul said to Ahijah, “Bring the ark of God here.” For the ark of God was at that time with the sons of Israel. 19 And it happened while Saul talked to the priest, that the commotion in the camp of the Philistines continued and increased; so Saul said to the priest, “Withdraw your hand.” 20 Then Saul and all the people who were with him rallied and came to the battle; and behold, every man’s sword was against his fellow, and there was very great confusion. (bold for emphasis)

 

Judah and King Jehoshaphat against Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir (2 Chron 20:17-23).

17 ‘You need not fight in this battle; station yourselves, stand and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out to face them, for the Lord is with you.” 18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord, worshiping the Lord. 19 And the Levites, from the sons of the Kohathites and of the sons of the Korahites, stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel, with a very loud voice.

20 And they rose early in the morning and went out to the wilderness of Tekoa; and when they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, put your trust in the Lord your God, and you will be established. Put your trust in His prophets and succeed.” 21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who sang to the Lord and those who praised Him in holy attire, as they went out before the army and said, “Give thanks to the Lord, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.” 22 And when they began singing and praising, the Lord set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were routed. 23 For the sons of Ammon and Moab rose up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir destroying them completely, and when they had finished with the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another. (bold for emphasis)

 

Israel against Egypt (Isa 19:1-3).

Behold, the Lord is riding on a swift cloud, and is about to come to Egypt;

The idols of Egypt will tremble at His presence,

And the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them.

2 “So I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians;

And they will each fight against his brother, and each against his neighbor,

City against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

3 “Then the spirit of the Egyptians will be demoralized within them;

And I will confound their strategy, (bold for emphasis)

 

Israel against Russia and many Arab nations (Ezekiel 38:18-23).

 “And it will come about on that day, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” declares the Lord God, “that My fury will mount up in My anger. 19 “And in My zeal and in My blazing wrath I declare that on that day there will surely be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 “And the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all the creeping things that creep on the earth, and all the men who are on the face of the earth will shake at My presence; the mountains also will be thrown down, the steep pathways will collapse, and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 “And I shall call for a sword against him on all My mountains,” declares the Lord God. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 “And with pestilence and with blood I shall enter into judgment with him; and I shall rain on him, and on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, a torrential rain, with hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23 “And I shall magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the Lord.”‘ (bold for emphasis)

 

It is my prayer that all the good and godly people of this country (which was founded on Christian principles) will stay strong, worship the Lord, and wait for Him to do justice on our enemies. If history repeats itself, as we have seen in the passages above, God may choose to judge our enemies in the same way—by letting them destroy each other. Let us wait on the Lord and trust Him, and worship Him without fear. Then we can just watch and see what He does.
