DCLM Daily Manna 5 June
Topic: The Unconquerable Defence [DCLM Daily Manna Tuesday, June 5, 2018]
Key Verse: “…If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him” (Esther 6:13).
MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna
Jane’s Defence Weekly, an overseas-based publication that specialises in reporting military, has an interesting description of the workings of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) European Air Defence systems that should help to remind believers of how his faith in God works as a defensive shield against attacks, oppressions and wiles of the devil. The NATO Defence system is developed as a modular structure comprising a part called “command module” and another part called “combat module”. The command module provides autonomous operation by detecting the threats (from the incoming enemy missiles), while the combat module automatically tracks the target with radar and television, calculates firing data and engages the target with missiles and guns.
Haman, who was promoted above all the princes, envied a man who sat at the palace gate. His wife and friends did not advise him to repent of his evil thoughts but told him to make gallows to hang Mordecai. They were pointers to the doom that eventually befell him.Christians are, daily, faced with spiritual and physical battles
organised by Satan and his agents. To win in these battles, the Christian must put on the whole, not part, of the armour of God. Many battles start from the spiritual realm. The best defence against the evil works of Satan is application of spiritual weapons including the Word, the blood of Jesus, the authority of Jesus’ name and the power of the Holy Spirit.
If NATO Defence system provides self- defence for surface ships against high precision weapons, the Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth, has a much higher defence mechanism to detect enemies and protect His children.
Thought For The Day
Putting on God’s complete armour guarantees victory in time and eternity.
