This is the same thig Pharaoh said about the children ofodus 14:3) Israel after they had marched out of bondage and were at the edge of the Red Sea. “They are entangled in the land. The wilderness has shut them in.” (Torah: Exodus 14:3)
This is the same thing Satan says about you, “That person is trapped, and will never get out of this situation.”
You have to make a decision: to listen to God for directions and obey what He tells you … or to listen to Satan. It's that simple … the choice is yours.
If you listen to Satan, you don't have to do anything: just accept defeat. If you listen to God, you may have to fight and work hard to succeed in accomplishing your victory. It's that simple … the choice is yours.
David asked God, “Will Saul come after me? Will the men of Keilah deliver me and my men into the hand of Saul?” The Hebrew word for “deliver” used here is “sagar” and means “to shut up or surrender.” David, by this time, had learned a great lesson in warfare: don't assume anything. A person can stab you in the back while they are hugging you. Let me repeat that: “Don't assume anything!”
In the natural, David wouldn't have asked God the latter part of the question because he had just saved the men of Keilah, along with their families and possessions. However, David knew that his trust was in God and not men. God answered him, “Saul will come down to you … the men of Keilah will deliver you [if you stay].” (Verses 11 and 12.)
So David and his men, who were about 600 at this time, arose and departed from Keilah and went wherever they could go. It was told Saul that David had escaped from Keilah; so he halted the expedition.
It doesn't matter HOW God works … just so He works! Find out the will of God when you are in a circumstance too hard for you, or a circumstance about which you need to be adversial, or a circumstance in which you need wisdom. Listen to Him. God has many options, plus He can create NEW ones anytime He wants.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)
We see how God delivered Elisha and his steward with angels in 2 Kings Chapter 6. The king of Syria was making war against Israel and Elisha told his leaders where the Syrian king would establish a military base from which to attack. And the man of God, Elisha, told the king of Israel, “Beware that you do not pass this place for the Syrians are coming down there.”
Concerning the military secrets of Syria, let me remind you of a historical record in the Tanakh, in the record of the Kings of Israel: We read an interesting passage:
"Now the king of Syria was warring against Yisra'el; and he took counsel with his servants, saying, In such and such a place shall be my camp.
Later, Bedouin terrorists were arrested in Israel. Check out these two past podcasts:
By providing this information, and by listeners of this podcast being able to disseminate information, we may help the Mossad and IDF to act on such matters ... or, stopping such attacks by letting terrorists know that their plans are revealed. Thanks for your help! Todah raba!
Let me encourage the true prophets of God – the navi'm – to help Israel and her leaders by speaking forth the revelations and anointed declarations given to you by the Ruach Ha Kodesh.
Also, pray for the future Jewish prophets of God – 144,000 of them (12,000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel) – who will be the last day evangelists to deliver the Good News of Yeshua Ha Mashiach to Israel. Many … if not most … are probably alive right now.
The warning Elisha gave to the king of Israel happened several times, and that troubled the king of Syria. The Syrian king said to his servants, “Tell me who is spying for the king of Israel, and revealing to him my plans?” One of his servants answered, and said, “No one. It is the prophet who is in Israel; he tells the king of Israel what you say in your bedroom.” (2 Kings 6:8-11.)
Then the king of Syria said, “Go see where he is at so that I may send troops to go get him.” Someone then told the king, “The prophet is in Dothan.” Then the king sent horses and chariots – a large group – and they surrounded the city where the prophet was. The next morning, when Elisha's servant woke up, he saw the chariots and servants surrounding the city and said, “Oh, my master, what are we to do?” (Verses 14 and 15.)
Then Elisha said, “Don't be afraid, those that are with us are more than those that are with them.” And Elisha prayed and said, “Lord, open his eyes that he may see.” Then, the LORD opened the eyes of Elisha's servants so that he could see in the Spirit: and he saw the mountain full of angels and horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” (Verses 16 and 17.)
TO BELIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE YOU MUST FIRST SEE THE INVISIBLE!
GOD HAS MANY ANGELS AVAILABLE TO WORK FOR YOU AS YOU INVOLVE YOURSELF IN HIS KINGDOM WORK!
When the Syrians came to take Elisha, he prayed to the LORD, “Strike these people, I pray, with blindness.” Then Elisha told the enemy, “Follow me, you are going the wrong way; this is not the way. I will bring you to the man you are looking for.” But he led them to the king of Israel in Samaria, and then prayed, “Lord, open the eyes of these men that they may see.” Elisha told the king to feed them instead of killing them. The Syrians returned to their king, and after that the bands of Syrian raiders never came back into Israel. (Verses 18-23)
Those were beautiful REAL MIRACLES that happened in Dothan. However, there was another situation in Dothan that happened about 1,300 years before. There was a young man in Dothan who needed deliverance, also, but was taken captive by his own brothers, placed in a pit, and sold to traders who were going into Egypt. That young man was heart broken, betrayed by his own family members.
Later, he was falsely accused by a woman and placed into prison. But, during all this time he never forgot the vision – the dream – God had given him years before. Finally, 13 years later, he became Prime Minister, economic couselor to Pharaoh (king) of Egypt. In that position he not only saved the nations of Middle East from a world famine, but he even saved his family who had betrayed him. His name was Joseph.
GOD DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK THE SAME WAY IN YOUR LIFE AS HE DOES IN OTHERS!
YOUR JOB IS TO LOVE GOD, FORGIVE OTHERS, BELIEVE HIM FOR MIRACLES, AND NEVER LOSE THE VISION HE HAS GIVEN YOU.
My friend, one bad decision can ruin your life – in the natural – but, God can turn that bad decision around and cancel it out and make it a blessing to you … and to others around the world.
I'm going to pray for you right now.
Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.
