A Call to Arms
july 19-20, 2019
A call to arms is a summons to actively engage an enemy. It is an appeal to choose a weapon to use as you fight alongside others.
Judges 2:21-22. I [The Lord] will no longer drive out before them any of the nations which Joshua left when he died, so that through them I may test Israel, whether they will keep the ways of the Lord and walk in them as their fathers did.
Speakers & Ministers
Every generation has its own battles to fight and enemies to defeat, enemies which God allows to remain as a test to see if they will remember the ancient paths and the ways of their fathers (Judges 2:21-22; Jeremiah 6:16). These battles will not be won hanging on the coattails of previous generations. Everyone must serve the purpose of God in their own generation (Acts 13:36), but must honor the revelation and sacrifice of their predecessors. The call to arms is a call to assemble, remembering the ways of those who have fought for us and now beside us; and to arm ourselves with the spiritual weapons (2 Cor. 10:4) capable of destroying the enemies that have been left for us to defeat!
