GOOD MORNING:

WELCOME:

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN:

OUR DAILY MEDITATION SCRIPTURES:

2 Chronicles 20:1-29:

1 IT CAME TO PASS AFTER THIS ALSO, THAT THE CHILDREN OF MOAB, AND THE CHILDREN OF AMMON, AND WITH THEM OTHER BESIDE THE AMMONITES, CAME AGAINST JEHOSHAPHAT TO BATTLE.
2 THEN THERE CAME SOME THAT TOLD JEHOSHAPHAT, SAYING, THERE COMETH A GREAT MULTITUDE AGAINST THEE FROM BEYOND THE SEA ON THIS SIDE SYRIA; AND BEHOLD, THEY BE IN HAZAZONTAMAR, WHICH IS ENGEDI.
3 AND JEHOSHAPHAT FEARED, AND SET HIMSELF TO SEEK THE LORD, AND PROCLAIMED A FAST THROUGHOUT ALL JUDAH.
4 AND JUDAH GATHERED THEMSELVES TOGETHER, TO ASK HELP OF THE LORD: EVEN OUT OF ALL THE CITIES OF JUDAH THEY CAME TO SEEK THE LORD.
5 AND JEHOSHAPHAT STOOD IN THE CONGREGATION OF JUDAH AND JERUSALEM, IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD, BEFORE THE NEW COURT
6 AND SAID, O LORD GOD OF OUR FATHERS, ART NOT THOU GOD IN HEAVEN? AND RULEST NOT THOU OVER ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE HEATHEN? AND IN THINE HAND IS THERE NOT POWER AND MIGHT, SO THAT NONE IS ABLE TO WITHSTAND THEE?
7 ART NOT THOU OUR GOD, WHO DIDST DRIVE OUT THE INHABITANTS OF THIS LAND BEFORE THY PEOPLE ISRAEL, AND GAVEST IT TO THE SEED OF ABRAHAM THY FRIEND FOR EVER?
8 AND THEY DWELT THEREIN, AND HAVE BUIT THEE A SANCTUARY THEREIN FOR THY NAME, SAYING,
9 IF, WHEN EVIL COMETH UPON US, AS THE SWORD, JUDGMENT, OR PESTILENCE, OR FAMINE, WE STAND BEFORE THIS HOUSE, AND IN THY PRESENCE, (FOR THY NAME IS IN THIS HOUSE,) AND CRY UNTO THEE IN OUR AFFLICTION, THEN THOU WILT HEAR AND HELP.
10 AND NOW, BEHOLD, THE CHILDREN OF AMMON AND MOAB AND MOUNT SEIR, WHOM THOU WOULDEST NOT LET ISARAEL INVADE, WHEN THEY CAME OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, BUT THEY TURNED FROM THEM, AND DESTROYED THEM NOT;
11 BEHOLD, I SAY, HOW THEY REWARD US, TO COME TO CAST US OUT OF THY POSSESSION, WHICH THOU HAST GIVEN US TO INHERIT.
YOU KNOW THATS JUST THE DEVIL (SATAN) WHO DON’T WANT US TO KEEP OUR INHERITANCE WHAT OUR LORD GOD HAVE ALREADY GIVEN US THEREFORE, WE HAVE TO KEEP HIM AND HIS EMPS BOUND WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS IN CHRIST JESUS NAME. AMEN.
12 O OUR GOD, WILT THOU NOT JUDGE THEM? FOR WE HAVE NO MIGHT AGAINST THIS GREAT COMPANY THAT COMETH AGAINST US; NEITHER WE KNOW WHAT TO DO: BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON THEE.
13 AND ALL JUDAH STOOD BEFORE THE LORD, WITH THEIR LITTLE ONES, THEIR WIVES, AND THEIR CHILDREN.
14 THEN UPON JAHAZIEL THE SON OF ZECHARIAH, THE SON OF BENAIAH, THE SON OF JEIEL, THE SON OF MATTANIAH, LEVITE OF THE SONS OF ASAPH, CAME THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION;
15 AND HE SAID, HEARKEN YE, ALL JUDAH, AND YE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM, AND THOU KING JEHOSHAPHAT, THUS SAITH THE LORD UNTO YOU, BE NOT AFRAID NOT DISMAYED BY REASON OF THIS GREAT MULTITUDE; FOR THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS, BUT GOD’S.
16 TO MORROW GO YE DOWN AGAINST THEM: BEHOLD, THEY COME UP BY THE CLIFF OF ZIZ; AND YE SHALL FIND THEM AT THE END OF THE BROOK, BEFORE THE WILDERNESS OF JERUEL.
17 YE SHALL NOT NEED TO FIGHT IN THIS BATTLE: SET YOURSELVES, STAND STILL, AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD WITH YOU, O JADAH AND JERUSALEM: FEAR NOT, NOR BE DISMAYED; TO MORROW GO OUT AGAINST THEM: FOR THE LORD WILL BE WITH YOU.
18 AND JEHOSPHAPHAT BOWED HIS HEAD WITH HIS FACE TO THE GROUND: AND ALL JUDAH AND THE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM FELL BEFORE THE LORD, WORSHIPPING THE LORD.
19 AND HTE LEVITES, OF THE CHILDREN OF THE KOHATHITES, AND OF THE CHILDREN OF THE KORHITES, STOOD UP TO PRAISE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL WITH A LOUD VOICE ON HIGH.
20 AND THEY ROSE EARLY IN THE MORNING, AND WENT FORTH INTO THE WILDERNESS OF TEKOA: AND AS THEY WENT FORTH, JEHOSHAPHAT STOOD AND SAID, HEAR ME, O JUDAH, AND YE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM; BELIEVE IN THE LORD YOUR GOD, SO SHALL YE BE ESTABLISHED; BELIEVE HIS PROPHETS, SO SHALL YE PROSPER.
21 AND WHEN HE HAD CONSULTED WITH THE PEOPLE, HE APPOINTED SINGERS UNTO THE LORD, AND THAT SHOULD PRAISE THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS, AS THEY WENT OUT BEFORE THE ARMY, AND TO SAY, PRAISE HE LORD; FOR HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOR EVER.
22 AND WHEN THEY BEGAN TO SING AND TO PRAISE, THE LORD SET AMBUSHMENTS AGAINST THE CHILDREN OF AMMON, MOAB, AND MOUNT SEIR, WHICH WERE COME AGAINST JUDAH; AND THEY WERE SMITTEN.
PEOPLE OF GOD WE CANNOT BE AFRAID WHEN DIFFERENT THINGS COME AGAINST BECAUSE FEAR IS AN ENEMY OF FAITH AND WE KNOW THAT GOD DON’T GIVE US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR ACCORDING TO 2 TIMOTHY 1:7 FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND. HEBREWS 11:1 NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN. HEBREWS 11:6 BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM: FOR HE THAT COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM. AND IF YOU ARE STILL HAVING TROUBLE WITH YOUR FAITH PLEASE MEDITATE ON THESE SCRIPTURES: MARK 9:23 – 24 (23) JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, IF THOU CANST BELIEVE, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM THAT BELIEVETH. (24) AND STRAIGHTWAY THE FATHER OF THE CHILD CRIED OUT, AND SAID WITH TEARS, LORD, I BELIEVE; HELP THOU MINE UNBELIEF. SO JUST CRY OUT TO GOD WITH AN SINCERE HEART AND HE WILL HEAR YOU.
23 FOR THE CHILDREN OF AMMON AND MOAB STOOD UP AGAINST THE INHABITANTS OF MOUNT SEIR, UTTERLY TO SLAY AND DESTROY THEM: AND WHEN THEY HAD MADE AN END OF THE INHABITANTS OF SEIR, EVERYONE HELPED TO DESTROY ANOTHER.
24 AND WHEN JUDAH CAME TOWARD THE WATCH TOWER IN THE WILDERNESS, THEY LOOKED UNTO THE MULTITUDE, AND, BEHOLD, THEY WERE DEAD BODIES FALLEN TO THE EARTH, AND NONE ESCAPED.
25 AND WHEN JEHOSHAPHAT AND HIS PEOPLE CAME TO TAKE AWAY THE SPOIL OF THEM, THEY FOUND AMONG THEM IN ABUNDANCE BOTH RICHES WITH THE DEAD BODIES, AND PRECIOUS JEWELS, WHICH THEY STRIPPED OFF FOR THEMSELVES, MORE THAN THEY COULD CARRY AWAY: AND THEY WERE THREE DAYS IN GATHERING OF THE SPOIL, IT WAS SO MUCH.
26 AND ON THE FOURTH DAY THEY ASSEMBLED THEMSELVES IN THE VALLEY OF BERACHAH; FOR THERE THEY BLESSED THE LORD: THEREFORE THE NAME OF THE SAME PLACE WAS CALLED, THE VALLEY OF BERACHAH, UNTO THIS DAY.
27 THEN THEY RETURNED, EVERY MAN OF JUDAH AND JERUSALEM, AND JEHOSHAPHAT IN THE FOREFRONT OF THEM, TO GO AGAIN TO JERUSALEM WITH JOY; FOR THE LORD HAD MADE THEM TO REJOICE OVER THEIR ENEMIES.
28 AND THEY CAME TO JERUSALEM WITH PSALTERIES AND HARPS AND TRUMPHETS UNTO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD.
29 AND THE FEAR OF GOD WAS ON ALL THE KINGDOM OF THOSE COUNTRIES, WHEN THEY HAD HEARD THAT THE LORD FOUGHT AGAINST THE ENEMIES OS ISRAEL.
SAINTS OF GOD IF THERE EVER WAS A TIME THAT EVERY THE WORLD NEEDED THE FEAR OF GOD THE TIME IS NOW. PROVERBS 9:10 THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM: AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOLY IS UNDERSTANDING. PSALM 111:10 THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM: A GOOD UNDERSTANDING HAVE ALL THEY THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS: HIS PRAISE ENDURETH FOR EVER.    I PRAY THAT I HAVE SAID SOMETHING TO ENCOURAGE SOMEONE THIS MORNING. GOD LOVES YOU AND I DO TOO. HAVE A BLESSED DAY!! PRAISE GOD.
