With God You ARE The Majority

“So every man of Israel deserted David, and followed Sheba the son of Bichri. But the men of Judah, from the Jordan as far as Jerusalem, remained loyal to their king.”

2 Samuel 20:2

When you read 2 Samuel 20 you get the idea that “every man of Israel departed David” but when you read the whole story you discover the amount was relatively small in number. Word’s are important and understanding there meaning is critical. Here in 2 Samuel 20 when it says “every man”, what it means is that every man who was dissident deserted David, not that every man deserted him. It’s important to note that the enemy of our soul loves to twist God’s Word to create confusion in our lives, as he has from the very beginning. The serpent deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden and he has been attempting to deceive us ever since. The book of Proverbs tells us regarding the spoken words we speak, “life and death are in the power of our tongue”. The same is true regarding the written word too. The last thing in the world the devil wants you and I to know, beloved, is the truth that the bible teaches because it was Jesus Himself who said when you and I know the truth…the truth will set us free!

The apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Galatians 1:9 when refuting the Judaizers who were in danger of the judgment of God towers anyone that stands against anyone who teaches a different Gospel message other than the message of Jesus Christ when he wrote, “As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.” The devil has already been judged because he has been a liar from the beginning. The only hope we have against the lies that the devil seeks to convince us is to commit ourselves to studying and understanding the Word of God, truth.

Do you desire to live a life of victory? If so pick up your bible and get in God’s Word. Don’t just read it but seek to hide it in your heart, write it on your post-it-notes, stick them in places you can’t help but see them and know that no matter who the devil says is against you, there is One who is for you, God Himself. And the good news of the Gospel is if God is for you then who can stand against you? No one! Don’t listen to the lies of the devil, listen to the truth found in God’s Word.

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

2 Timothy 2:15
