Locked & Loaded – God the Warrior

April 25, 2021 / 2 Kings 6:8,11-13,15-19,21-23

Psalm 147:5 – Great is our Lord and mighty in power

Psalm 93:4  – Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea—the Lord on high is mighty.

Deuteronomy 33:29 – Blessed are you, Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord? He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword.  Your enemies will cower before you, and you will tread on their heights.”

2 Kings 6:8, 11-13-15-19, 21-238 Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard 11 This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?” 12 “None of us my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” 13 “Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” They went by night and surrounded the city. 15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. 16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness.  And he led them to Samaria. 21 When the king of Israel saw them, he asked Elisha, “Shall I kill them, my father? Shall I kill them?” 22 “Do not kill them,” he answered. Set food and water before them so that they may eat and drink and then go back to their master.” 23 So he prepared a great feast for them, and after they had finished eating and drinking, he sent them away, and they returned to their master. So the bands from Aram stopped raiding Israel’s territory.

Romans 12:20-21 – On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
