“The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is His name…
…Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: Thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.” Exodus 15:3, 6 (KJV)
The fifteenth chapter of Exodus is dedicated to the Song of Moses (vv. 1-19). It is a song of triumph against a nation that at the time was the center of the known world. The people of Israel were in bondage in Egypt. Enslaved by a king who had no mercy on them, thus was God’s judgment to come for their deliverance.
There are many who do not like looking at GOD as being a “Man of war” or like a “Man of war”; however, that is how the Scriptures speak of Him in two different verses. In the above verses of Exodus, and in Isaiah we read,
“The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, He shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: He shall cry, yea, roar; He shall prevail against His enemies.” Isaiah 42:13 (KJV)
Many today want a lovey, dovey god who supplies all their wants and wishes. That god is more of a genie who grants the every wish of the one who “trust” in that god. The GOD of glory and power is the One who has made all things; the seen and the unseen. His glory is above and beyond that of men or women. There is only one glory that will stand and that is the LORD’S.
When someone like the Pharaoh of Egypt exalts themselves against the LORD, the GOD will show Himself strong in His own behalf and His people. One day all the world will know that GOD is the LORD. For some that will not be a pleasant day or hereafter.
Make today a good one by believing in the Son whom the LORD has sent to be the payment for your sins. When you trust His Son Jesus you are no longer His enemy, but His child.
