“Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would SEE the glory of God?” John 11:40.
David grew from an ordinary shepherd to become the greatest King of Israel. His fame started when he volunteered to fight a giant called Goliath who terrorized and paralyzed the Israelis army for forty days.
David did not have the weapons of trained soldiers, he did not have the support of anyone who believed in him, and he had no protective physical armor. But he had the power and great glory of His King of Glory. “Through the victories you gave (David), his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.” Psalm 21:5. David killed Goliath with a sling and a stone.
David’s weapons of successful warfare were spiritual and not physical because the real enemy of Israel were spiritual and demonic. David’s weapons included: 1) Faith, in his King of Glory; 2) Worship, to summon the Presence and Power of GOD; 3) His Spiritual Armor of God; 4) The Sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. Now we have the spiritual weapons of David, and in addition we have the Name of Jesus, the Blood of Jesus, and the Armor of Jesus Christ.
Now in our world we have a cause worth fighting for, as billions of people are being terrorized by fear; destroyed by violence; subdued by poverty; deceived and dying without the love and salvation of Jesus Christ, son of David. The glory of the LORD Jesus Christ shall be seen in and through His believing servants of His mission to save the world. Let us together rise to the challenge of Jesus, and believe to see His Glory manifest in and through us to the glory of God our Father.
The glory of the LORD Jesus Christ shall fill the earth.
