TOPIC:  Doomed Alliance

TEXT: Isaiah 8:9-22

DCLM Daily Manna 16 March 2022 OUTLINE

In the history of ancient Israel, the Lord sometimes used other nations to punish His people if they sinned. He did not want them to remain in iniquity, which alienated them from His protection and exposed them to conquest by the enemy. He is the sovereign Lord who can employ the military of any nation, godly or heathen, to implement His agenda.

The Israelites had a taste of this type of proxy judgment from God. Israel teamed up with Syria to battle Assyria, a force the Lord had raised up in military campaigns in the region. In other words, the alliance was unwittingly a war against those appointed by God to fight on His behalf. But the Lord sent a warning to Israel and Syria through Isaiah that their confederacy was in futility.

The great army of faithful believers in Jesus Christ are assured of victory against all the forces of the enemy. No matter how mighty, ferocious and threatening the foe may look on the battlefield, the Lord assures us that they “shall be broken in pieces”. And if they take counsel together, it shall come to nought.

The Lord has given the heaven-bound believer the charge of the great commission. But Satan would employ physical and spiritual adversaries to form alliances to attempt to stop us. We must remember that because we are engaged in the ‘Lord’s war’ to win all nations unto Him and set the captives of Satan free, He will make us unstoppable as we go deep into the communities and the nations of the world to spread the gospel.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Satan’s conspiracies against us have failed already.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Jeremiah 33-35
