Barry Stagner: When Our Enemy Gets Uncomfortably Close…

Barry Stagner

Psalm 48:4-8 KJV – “For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together. They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away. Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail. Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind. As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.”

The background for our verses today is in 2 Kings 18:29-30: “Then the Rabshakeh stood and called out with a loud voice in Hebrew, hoping to demoralize those who were . . . saying, ‘Hear the word of the great king . . . of Assyria! Thus says the king: “Do not let Hezekiah deceive you, for he shall not be able to deliver you from his hand; nor let Hezekiah make you trust in the Lord, saying, ‘The Lord will surely deliver us; this city shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.’”’” 

The Assyrians had laid siege against the city of Jerusalem, and here we see exactly how close their proximity was: they were within speaking distance. And yet . . . Hezekiah “tore his clothes, covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord. . . . Then Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said: ‘O Lord God of Israel, the One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth’” (2 Kings 19:15).

Christian, keep this in mind: You can praise God with expectancy no matter what you’re going through. No battle you encounter will ever be faced alone! This doesn’t mean there won’t be battles and that we won’t see the enemy getting uncomfortably close at times, but God will make Himself known. He made Himself known to the Egyptians through the plagues that came upon them. He made Himself known to Pharaoh, who sent the Egyptians in pursuit of Israel, which resulted in the death of the Egyptians.118 

Who was it who instructed Moses regarding where to tell the Israelites to camp? It was the Lord. In fact, intricate details of where to camp were given to Moses by God in Exodus 14:1-4. Why were they to camp there? Because the Lord was going to harden Pharaoh’s heart and cause him to pursue Israel into that very site so that the Egyptians may know that He is the Lord

In other words, God told Moses, “Tell Israel to camp with their backs to the Red Sea between the Mouth of Gorges, the Well of Bitterness, and the Master of Doom, and I will stir up the Egyptian army to pursue them while they’re camped there” (See Exodus 14:10-14). An important point to note is that the fourth side of the campground was the Red Sea itself. “The people were dismayed, saying, ‘It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than we should die in the wilderness.’ [But] Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord. . . .’” 

The truth is, the enemies of the church are growing in number and closing in on believers. We need to remember that we’re not the ones in danger. Our enemies are! We have nothing to fear; they have everything to fear. They are rising up against the blood-bought, Spirit-filled church of the living God! What we have heard, we will see (Psalm 48:8). No battle will ever be faced alone. God is for us and with us! Go forward this day, knowing that if God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31).

The Warning Left Unheeded By Ebrahim Raisi: Don’t Mess with Israel

Was the May 19th helicopter crash the Lord’s response to the man responsible for so much bloodshed and great suffering in Israel? I’m certain that what appeared to most as an accident was, in reality, God’s response as well as a warning of what lies ahead for those who now seek to divide and destroy Israel and its people (see Joel 3:1-3).

‘God Forbid That I Should Glory’: Billy Graham Was About Jesus — First And Last

It is appropriate, then, that the statue reflects more than just the image of a man. It presents him in the context of his high calling. In it, Billy stands preaching with an open Bible in one hand as the other points to a passage in that Bible.
