This is a part of a quirky “what happened to…” series
- What happened to Josiah?
- What happened to Goliath’s kids?
- What happened to Zacchaeus?
- What happened to Moses?
- What happened to the Sons of Sceva?
- What happened to Peter?
- What happened to Jehu?
And now for the main attraction…
I challenge you to put into action this lesson I have learned from the life of King David.
King David fought Goliath in full view of the army.
Then in later years the army and their children had grown accustomed to their authority and ability as a result of YHWH, and they now fought and killed Goliath’s children!
And after this there arose war with the Philistines at Gezer. Then Sibbecai the Hushathite struck down Sippai, who was one of the descendants of the giants, and the Philistines were subdued.
And there was again war with the Philistines, and Elhanan the son of Jair struck down Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.
And there was again war at Gath, where there was a man of great stature, who had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, twenty-four in number, and he also was descended from the giants. And when he taunted Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea, David’s brother, struck him down.
These were descended from the giants in Gath, and they fell by the hand of David and by the hand of his servants. – 1Ch 20:4-8
But not only that, but they sent David home because he was limiting their ability!
There was war again between the Philistines and Israel, and David went down together with his servants, and they fought against the Philistines.
And David grew weary.
And Ishbi-benob, one of the descendants of the giants, whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of bronze, and who was armed with a new sword, thought to kill David.
But Abishai the son of Zeruiah came to his aid and attacked the Philistine and killed him.
Then David’s men swore to him, “You shall no longer go out with us to battle, lest you quench the lamp of Israel.” – 2Sa 21:15-17
You, dear regular reader over the years, have seen incredible things documented right here on this blog. So I challenge you, I ask you…
Are you ready to take a MUCH BOLDER and more OPEN stand of your own? Are you ready to be SEEN to be taking a stand. Are you ready to be COUNTED as a supporter of what Jesus Christ is doing in the earth?
As you have seen on this blog, deserts are no match for Jesus Christ, the lack of water is no match for Jesus Christ, hurricanes and even entire hurricane seasons are no match for Jesus Christ. Ongoing wars are no match for Jesus Christ. Global warming is no match for Jesus Christ.
Thank you to those who support this ministry financially.
