Speaker: Lukus Counterman - Deuteronomy 20 provides instruction for God’s people concerning war. You see, the Israelites were about to cross over into the promised land and face formidable enemies - armies larger than theirs and military weaponry that included chariots and horses. But, they weren’t supposed to be faint hearted or afraid because the Lord their God was going with them. He would fight on their behalf and secure their ultimate victory. Friends, if God is for us, who can be against us? Though Israel reached their promised land, we haven’t arrived at ours yet. We trudge forward and fight valiantly against spiritual enemies while we wait to enter the promised rest (Heb. 4:1-11). May the Lord teach us from Deuteronomy 20 about dangerous warfare, enemy threats, and ultimate victory for the people of God.
