Make The Lord Great Again In America! Part 8
by tim henry
By now, you have probably received my book and looked to find answers, to some of the many questions that I have posed in previous post. I hope, also, that you have searched out the scriptures and know what I was speaking of when I mentioned Ziklag. But, just in case you have not, let me give you a short description of what happened at Ziklag with David, the Philistines, Achish, the men at the brook of Besor, and the four hundred men that followed David. In the story of Ziklag, as it is commonly known in the Bible, (1 Samuel 29-30, to get the full meaning), David and his men had been sent away from the battle field by Achish, because it offended the Philistines. They claimed they did not know what David might do in time of battle. Achish, told the Philistines, he found no fault in David and he would stay true to his word, but the Philistines insisted David must go. Achish, came to David and let him know he had done nothing wrong but there was a few, (the princes of the Philistines) that did not want him around, so David and his men needed to leave the next morning.
Three days later they came to Ziklag where all the women and children had been camped. Ziklag was burned with fire and all the children and all they owned was gone. David and all his men began to weep until they could weep no more. The people were ready to stone David. David went and sought refuge and encouragement in the Lord. David sought the ephod, which means he sought a word from the Lord and possibly made a sacrifice before Lord. David aske the Lord, “shall I purse these people?” The Lord answered, “PURSUE: “for thou shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.” The men of David, 600 men, did pursue, but at a brook called Besor, 200 men became faint, wore out and wore down and could go no further. David and the other 400 men went on and won the battle, took back everything that was taken from them, plus the spoils. Now the men that went with David and were a part of the victory, did not want to share in what they had taken back, but David did not want to hear of that, so the victory was shared throughout the land. In my next post, I will point out how the story of Ziklag is so relevant as to where we are right now in America.
