The Lord is a Warrior

Ex. 15-3

We live in a time of the church being under constant attack. The religious war with Muslims seems to gain new footing every week. More Christians are being persecutioned than any time in history. The political upheaval, in our own country and abroad has us reeling — everything seems to be turning upside down. So many proponents of relativism, “alternative lifestyles”, athiesm, agnosticism and freedom from religion are pointing thier fingers at the church and saying we are the problem. We are loosing our young people at an astounding rate — more churches are closing than ever before — most of us can’t believe all of this is happening in our own time.

Add this to the “normal” strife in the church caused by gossip, backbiting, prideful leadership, unrepentant sin, and lack of respect for the scriptures — it seems the enemy is mostly winning and many are despairing.

But — remember, “The Lord is a warrior,  Yahweh, is his name.” Exodus 15:3 reminds us of of the plagues in Egypt and the Red Sea crashing down on the Egyption army. He has all power in his control, including myriads of angels, a single one of which killed 185,000 men in a single day in 2 Kings 19.

Do not fear! Jehovah will fight for us! Call on his name, seek his face, meditate on his eternal nature, read and remember the many, many examples in scripture of his overcoming overwhelming odds for his people and you will see — it is far from hopeless — not only do we need not despair, we can shout Hallelujah!

Kent Dickerson is a Christian writer, teacher, singer and lecturer. He calls his blog, “Remade Preacher”. The reason why that title was chosen was because God brought him back to full time ministry after leaving it for thirty years. The primary reason for leaving Pastoral Ministry was a deep-seated struggle with pornography. He facilitates two seminars. -Spiritual Battle Plan, The Path To Victory and -Spiritual Battle Plan, the Armor Of God. In both courses he calls upon men to first get into the battle against the sin in their lives and then to find new ways to call upon the Almighty God to lead, strengthen and protect them. He also emphasizes helping each other as brothers. In addition, versions of Spiritual Battle Plan are being developed for both men and women learners. A new class/seminar, Be Transformed, is now available as well. During the “Be Transformed” Seminar Kent teaches the art of analyzing one’s thinking patterns in order to allow renewing-of-the-mind transformation so that one can then devote one’s time to contemplating God. Kent is currently authoring a book tentatively titled, “Remade! A preacher finds victory over pornography and complaint.” He is also working on recording his first EP and videos Kent is from Abilene, Texas where he attended Abilene Christian University. He currently lives in Pyeongtaek, South Korea as part of the U.S. military community.
