Hey, Noah here with an OpEd piece for you.
Seems like a very timely day to post this.
This is a call to action.
A call for “Worship As Warfare”.
Let me explain what I mean by that…
This is a call to battle.
But probably unlike any you have seen before.
We’re in a battle in America right now and across the world.
Oh, it feels like a battle against Trump…
A battle against Patriots…
But it’s much more than that.
This is really a spiritual battle being waged in heavenly places.
A battle of good vs. evil.
And I’ll prove it here in a second.
If you’ve read your Bible, you know it’s a very supernatural book.
We’ve tried to take all supernatural aspects out of the Bible in modern America.
We want to boil things down to hard facts and things we can see.
The problem is, the Bible tells a very different story.
In fact, Ephesians 6:12 tells us very specifically the real battle is not against other humans and it’s not one we can see with our eyes:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
So what to do?
The answer is WORSHIP.
Did you know that’s how the LORD Almighty fought most battles in the Bible?
Did you know that whenever YHWH instructed Israel on how to fight a battle he would tell them to send the worshippers out on the front lines?
That makes no sense.
You’re gonna send a guy with a flute and a guy with a guitar out on the most dangerous front line?
No shield. No sword. No weapons.
Check this out from 2 Chronicles 21-24:
21 After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang:
“Give thanks to the Lord;
his faithful love endures forever!”
22 At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves. 23 The armies of Moab and Ammon turned against their allies from Mount Seir and killed every one of them. After they had destroyed the army of Seir, they began attacking each other. 24 So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped.
Interesting battle tactic!
And they won without lifting a single sword.
Remember Joshua at Jehrico?
Do you remember how the walls fell?
With praise and worship and a loud shout.
20 When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone charged straight in, and they took the city.
And backing up a little bit earlier from Joshua 6:6, who was on the front of the army?
The TRUMPet players:
6 So Joshua son of Nun called the priests and said to them, “Take up the ark of the covenant of the Lord and have seven priests carry trumpets in front of it.” 7 And he ordered the army, “Advance! March around the city, with an armed guard going ahead of the ark of the Lord.”
From Acts 16:25-26, what did Paul and Silas do when they were locked up in prison?
Worship as warfare.
25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose.
Maybe the reason the power is in the worshippers is explained in Psalm 22:3:
Yet You are holy,
O You who are enthroned upon the praises of Israel.
And Pslam 121:
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
Do you see it now?
It’s so obvious.
This is a spiritual battle.
I am calling on all Pastors, Patriots and Prayer Warriors across America to stop what you are doing and Pray for President Trump right now! And then move into a time of Worship….
Jesus Christ is the head of the church and he is still on the throne!
