forces are bringing the issue of dominance and rule in the earth to a
public face-off! Is good a greater force than evil? The
bottom line: There either exists a true and loving God, Jehovah, who
delivers His people and continues to work salvation in human affairs or
there is not! When the dust clears, most people will see the
outcome of the battle at a high government level as to who controls the
military might (i.e. evil minded rulers or the common man). The
inhabitants of the earth will serve Yehovah or
will become subjects to political,
take refuge in Jesus/Yeshua! Glean (to collect facts little
by little) from each category on this website, and try to relate in your mind the
sum of the
parts (connect the dots) like a detective would do to solve a mystery. Everything in life
is connected. Be encouraged because the Lord is able to bring all
things under His control. -Thomas Millington, Ambassador IICor5:20
1 Samuel 17:1-50,
it is written:
Philistines [symbolic for uncircumcised/ unclean people of the sea;
worldly; secular] gathered their forces for war and assembled at Socoh
in Judah. They pitched camp at Ephes Dammim, between Socoh and Azekah.
Saul and the Israelites assembled and camped in the Valley of Elah and
drew up their battle line to meet the Philistines. The Philistines
occupied one hill and the Israelites another, with the valley between
A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the
Philistine camp. He was over nine feet a tall. He had a bronze helmet on
his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five thousand
shekels (about 125 pounds); on his legs he wore bronze greaves, and a
bronze javelin was slung on his back. His spear shaft was like a
weaver’s rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels
(about15 pounds). His shield bearer went ahead of him.
Goliath stood and shouted to the ranks of Israel, '
“Why do you come out and line up for
battle? Am I not a Philistine, and are you not the servants of Saul?
Choose a man and have him come down to me. If he is able to fight and
kill me, we will become your subjects; but if I overcome him and
kill him, you will become our subjects and serve us.' Then the
Philistine said, 'This day I defy the ranks of Israel! Give me a
man and let us fight each other.' On hearing the Philistine’s words,
Saul and all the Israelites were dismayed and terrified.
Now David was
the son of an Ephrathite named Jesse, who was from Bethlehem in Judah.
Jesse had eight sons, and in Saul's time he was old and well advanced in
years. Jesse's three oldest sons had followed Saul to the war: The
firstborn was Eliab; the second, Abinadab; the third, Shammah. David was
the youngest. The three oldest followed Saul, but David went back and
forth from Saul to tend his father's sheep at Bethlehem.
Forty days the
Philistine came forward every morning and evening and took his stand.
Now Jesse said
to his son David, 'Take this ephad of roasted grain and these ten loaves
of bread for your brothers and hurry to their camp. Take along these ten
cheeses to the commander of their unit. See how your brothers are and
bring back some assurance from them. They are with Saul and all the men
of Israel in the Valley of Elah, fighting against the Philistines.'
Early in the
morning David left the flock with a shepherd, loaded up and set out, as
Jesse had directed. He reached the camp as the army was going out to its
battle positions, and shouted the war cry. Israel and the Philistines
were drawing up their lines facing each other. David left his things
with the keeper of supplies, ran to the battle lines and greeted his
brothers. As he was talking with them, Goliath, the Philistine champion
from Gath, stepped out from his lines and shouted his usual defiance,
and David heard it. When the Israelites saw the man, they all ran from
him in great fear.
Israelites had been saying, 'Do you see how this man keeps coming out?
He comes out to defy Israel. The king will give great wealth to
the man who kills him. He will also give him his daughter in marriage
and will exempt his father’s family from taxes in Israel.'
David asked the men standing near him, 'What will be done for the man
who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who
is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the
They repeated to him what they had been saying and told him, 'This is
what will be done for the man who kills him.'
When Eliab, David’s oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he
burned with anger at him and asked, 'Why have you come down here? And
with whom did you leave those few sheep in the desert? I know how
conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to
watch the battle.'
'Now what have I done?' said David. 'Can’t I even speak?' He then turned
away to someone else and brought up the same matter, and the men
answered him as before. What David said was overheard and reported to
Saul, and Saul sent for him.
David said to
Saul, 'Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant
will go and fight him.'
'You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you
are only a boy, and he has been a fighting man from his youth.'
But David said
to Saul, 'Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion
or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it,
struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I
seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed
both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like
one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. The
LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear
will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.'
Saul said to
David, 'Go, and the LORD be with you.'
dressed David in his own tunic. He put a coat of armor on him and a
bronze helmet on his head. David fastened on his sword over the tunic
and tried walking around, because he was not used to them. 'I cannot go
in these,' he said to Saul, 'because I am not used to them.' So he took
them off. Then he took his staff in his hand,
smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s
bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine.
Philistine, with his shield bearer in front of him, kept coming closer
to David. He looked David over and saw that he was only a boy, ruddy and
handsome, and he despised him. He said to David. 'Am I a dog, that you
come at me with sticks?' And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
'Come here,' he said, 'and I’ll give your flesh to the birds of the air
and the beasts of the field!'
said to the Philistine, 'You come
against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you
in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel,
whom you have defied. This day the LORD will hand you over to me, and
I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. Today I will give the
carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and the beasts
of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God in
Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword
or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD’s, and he
will give all of you into our hands.'
Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the
battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone,
he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank
into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.
over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his
hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him."
concludes this portion of the Word of the LORD.

today is deeply influenced by what is known as Judeo-Christian ethics, which
is essentially based on Torah principles. It was this unique book of
instructions that introduced such fundamental concepts as, 'love thy
neighbor' and 'do not hate your brother in your heart.' In ancient society
there was no such thing as a desire for peace, the nations simply vied for
power through military might. The Torah spread the concept of peace to the
world to such an extent that The United Nations motto is a verse from
Isaiah, calling for a society where people lay down their weapons and sworn
enemies become friends."

However, this I know—that God planned for man freedom and peace, and not serfdom

substitute a code of inhumanity and force, rending ties of blood and heart,
