1 Samuel 17:26, "And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?"
The teenage shepherd boy, David, was taking some refreshment to his brothers at the front in their war against the Philistine army. A giant by the name of Goliath was openly taunting the Israelites and demanded that someone come out to fight. No one was willing until David could not endure the nonsense any longer. His festering anger was boiling as the God of Israel was being openly mocked by their enemies. Forget that he was a teen. Forget that his family were part of Israel's army. Forget that the reputation of Israel was at stake. How could it be allowed that these heathen Phillistines, these uncircumsized pagans, just sit there openly mocking Israel's God? It was too much for David. His faith in our Lord, mingled with his fierce anger caused him to act. David was filled with real 'righteous indignation', something that most of us do not properly understand. His actions in the Goliath matter was something we need to study and understand today.
The day that David faced Goliath is considered a high water mark in Jewish history. The fierce battle with the Phillistines was only moments away yet the Israelite soldiers were shaking in their boots. The uncircumcized giant thought that the battle was won because of his enormous size and power. Goliath didn't think any human could beat him, and maybe he was right. His thinking is very similar to what we are witnessing today.
God's ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts. God laughs at man's arrogance and loves to bring down the biggest man has by the smallest of means. That is what He is doing to the nations now with Israel. Man seems to forget that his arms are too short to box with God! There is no excuse either, you are for the Lord or are against Him. Goliath did not take into account the spiritual anointing of God that David carried. He thought David to be a runt. The enemies of God always think that God's people are runts. Hell will be full of demons, and men, who hate God's runts!
Okay, today is September 23rd and the taunts and boasting of the enemy about this inauguration date has been ringing in our ears for months. Enough already, let's get on with it. Today is supposed to be their day to do whatever. Their ambitious plans, like Goliaths' looks like they can't lose. Atleast that's the way they see it. CERN is going on line today, hope they paid the electric bill. The Pope is in Washington DC., and the whole world is messmerized by the event. People who claim to be a part of the Lord's army are trying to figure it out and some are shaking in their boots on the sideline. It really is an unbelievable and surreal time.
The media is buzzing today about the Jesuit Pontiff of Rome visiting the White House. The downward spiral of our moral decay and the shifting sands of this nations' fortunes are on full display before the world. This 'vicar' , or 'false' Messiah is about to do something dramatic before the world. Of course, we all expect him to bless America and tell us everything we want to hear, but watch out for his message at the United Nations. Our President, as is his custom, has invited every gay activist he can think of to Washington to commerate the papal visit. It is like the quiet before the storm. There is a spirit of religious fervor all over the news about what this Argentine Pope, and his visit really means.
Luke 6:26, "Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets."
This morning I actually heard Savanah Guthrie of the Today Show ask a Roman Catholic authority, 'The Pope hasn't watered down the Roman Catholic message at all, has he?' What? This Pope declared that atheists could go to heaven! You can't water down the message more than that can you?
There is another spirit guiding things in Washington DC. It is a spirit of delusion. It is the spirit of anti-Messiah/anti-Christ. The deviance that is embraced by this Pope, and the President, goes along with the new world order agenda that will be totally against God in the last days. A day is coming when Bible believers will feel the full brunt of going against the spirit of the age that we are seeing. Don't be alarmed, these things must come to pass.
I ask this question and it needs to be asked: Who are these giants that seek to impose their system on the rest of mankind? The American dignataries that showed up in the nations' capital to greet Francis shake their fists at God almost every day. This Pope, this Jesuit, preaches a message contrary to anything and everything in the Bible. Who are these uncircumsized Phillistines?
I understand that this week they are going to raise the Vatican flag alongside the Palestinian flag at the United Nations. People that hear me speak and teach have heard me say for years that when you see the Vatican link arms with Islam, you are looking at the religious beast, the one world religion spoken of in the Bible. I believe we are seeing the linking of arms of the Vatican and Islam. We are seeing the official unveiling of the Biblical False Prophet before our very eyes.
Revelation 19:20, "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."
