“The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name” (Ex 15:3) Read: Numbers 16:28-34
In the Heavens
Our God is a super war veteran. He is an expert in fighting in the heavenlies and galaxies. He is also an expert in fighting on earth. He is the Lord of wars. If you think you know how to fight, wait until you meet my God. He never loses any battle. God is the Man of War and He is all by Himself. He does not need anyone by His side to fight and win any battle. He is all powerful, all knowing, almighty and holds all things by His might Power. You and I need Him always and at all time to fight and win our battles.
On the earth
This Scripture text in Numbers 16:28-34 shows how the Lord demonstrated His prowess and expertise in fighting on land. When He fights on land, everything on it becomes His weapon, and cooperates with Him to fight a common enemy – the one who is challenging the God Almighty Man of war. In the above battle, His enemies were standing on the earth He created to oppose His servant Moses. All He did was ask the ground to open and swallow them up. And it obeyed and swallowed all the enemies, their assets, houses and families and closed up again as if nothing happened. This war veteran is so perfect at war that after He is through with a battle, there will be no evidence that it took place, except that the enemies would have completely disappeared. Any enemy that will come through the land to fight you, your loves and household will be completely swallowed up in Jesus’ Name. There will be no trace of them after the Man of war is through with them.
At the Sea
Our God is also an expert in battles at sea. In Exodus 14, when the Egyptians who had the best military formation then had to contend with the Israelites at the river bank, God displayed His maritime war expertise.
He parted the Red sea, and made a road for His children to pass through. But when the enemies of God (Egyptians) entered the miracle road God created for His children, they did not know that it was a trap leading to their mass burial. When they had travelled far mid-sea, the heavenly army began to dismantle their chariot wheels. Movement was seriously impeded. By the time they realized they were fighting with a marine Man of war, and decided to escape on foot out of the sea, the Lord brought back the water walls, turning the sea into a mass burial ground.
Once again there was no trace of any battle! Exodus 15:5 says not one corpse was found. They all sank like lead. This season, any enemy from the marine kingdom or others who come against you through the sea shall be subdued and sunk as lead without a trace in Jesus’ Name. Let’s worship Him now and Always even today.
Prayer for Today
O Lord, thou Mighty Man of war, subdues every battle against my life, family and destiny in Jesus mighty name. Amen
