Wow! How powerful is this scripture? The priests gave shields to deflect whatever evil would try to penetrate their lives and spears so they could move forward and attack. They didn't have to look far as King David's arsenal was hanging right in the House of God - Powerful! God has put all we need, to be a successful child of God, in the church. He has placed pastors in a place of authority to feed the flock and pass out the weapons that we need to make it to Heaven and to win lost souls. We defend this truth while we also have an offense that shares the Love of Christ. "...hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: (1 Corinthians 1:28)". The Lord allows us to gather our armour in His house and bring down things to nought that are.
Acts 10:38 tells us Jesus, with the Holy Ghost and power, went about doing good. If we will allow the Holy Ghost to lead and guide us, with the tools provided, we can win souls to Christ. He said we would receive power, the same power of Christ, when we receive the Holy Ghost. Matthew 9:37, "...The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;"
People wants this truth! The world is crying out for help. Could it be we just haven't picked up what is hanging in the church; they are waiting on a willing vessel to pick them up, and "go ye therefore"? The harvest is ready, but are we? Help all of us to us what God , in His mercy, has given to the church. He does supply our every need!
