We have to choose where we stand.
We have to choose who is going to be our defender.
Our fear of violence due to recent events influences our choice.
We are prepared to meekly give up our rights to obtain peace and safety
in an increasingly violent and dangerous world.
We not only have a choice, but we have also been commanded what to choose.
There have always only been two choices.
It is true that the wrong one is very well packaged.
It is good and to be desired
Genesis 2: 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,
and that it was pleasant to the eyes,
and a tree to be desired to make one wise,
One choice is life and the other is death.
This was the choice that Adam had in the Garden and it has always been
the same choices which have been available since that time..
We have been commanded to choose life.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:
therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live:
Our adversary is a liar and a murderer.
Like a paedophile lures small children with sweets,
He will promise us any and every thing.
He tells us what we want to hear.
He promised Christ all the kingdoms of the world.
He would never have given them to him.
Satan is fully aware that the angel of the Lord encamps around those that fear the Eternal.
He sees us and is fully aware that under the shadow of the Eternal we are safe.
Pharaoh who is symbolic of Satan with his mighty army, could not touch the unarmed
Israelites when they left Egypt.
When a hedge is drawn around us by the Eternal, NOTHING can touch us,
without his express permission.
Under severe bondage, none of the plagues, insects, diseases,
darkness and even death,
which afflicted the Egyptians touched the Israelites.
This was in addition to the protection against Pharoah’s armies.
But obedience was a requirement.
Satan complained about the hedge that the Eternal had built around Job.
Job 1: 9 So Satan answered the LORD and said,
"Does Job fear God for nothing?
10 "Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household,
and around all that he has on every side?
You have blessed the work of his hands,
and his possessions have increased in the land.
Christ is the source of our security, peace and safety.
Ephesians 2:14 For he Christ is our peace….
When unarmed Elisha was surrounded by an apparently overwhelming
detachment of armed soldiers, his servant was very worried for his life.
This is what happened.
2 Kings 6:14 Therefore sent he (the king of Israel)
thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night,
and compassed the city about.
15 And when the servant of the man of God (Elisha) was risen early,
and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots.
And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
16 And he answered,
for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed,
and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see.
And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man;
and he saw:
and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
18 And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD,
and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness.
And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.
Elisha and his servant were being protected by an invincible spiritual army.
It is not a small thing to be a man or woman of God.
It is not a small thing to be obedient and faith in what the Eternal tells us.
The Eternal puts an indestructible barrier between us and the enemy and his co-workers,
just like the cloud which separated the nation of Israel from the pursuing Egyptians.
Whether it is armed men, weapons that use explosives, electronic,
chemical or biological components.
It does not matter in the slightest.
The Eternal, who gives Life and breath and sustains the entire creation,
watches over His obedient, called and chosen believers.
He never slumbers and He never sleeps.
He sees what is going on all the time, night and day,
which are all the same to Him.
Psalm 91 is a reality for true believers or those who are not believers but
are actually carrying out his will, anything else is deception.
We do not need protection from any other source,
however, well meaning it might appear.
We can go even further, it will be sleeping with the enemy.
Psalm 91:5 You shall not be afraid for the terror by night;
nor for the arrow that flies by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness;
nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at your side,
and ten thousand at your right hand;
but it shall not come nigh you.

The only way out of our dilemmas is Jesus Christ.
He is the only way of escape.
Praise the Lord.
Come soon Lord Jesus.
