Are You a Saul or a David?
Amost everybody knows the story of David and Goliath from the Tanakh (Old Testament). The giant Goliath, possibly a descendant of the nephilim, the offspring of the forbidden union between fallen angels and women, taunted and mocked the Israelite army facing him to send a proxy to represent their country so that the battle could be settled by one-to-one combat, as was the custom at times.
Settling the outcome of a battle in this way entailed an enormous risk. On the one (positive) hand it meant that only one man would have to die instead of thousands, an attractive option. Any leader worth his salt would, in his heart, be willing to put himself forward in order to spare the lives of his own people. On the other hand, losing for Israel would have meant total subjugation and slavery once again. And the problem was, Saul's faith was weak and he was afraid. He saw the physical odds instead of the spiritual ones. In many ways, then, Saul's response (and that of his cowering army) was that of today's carnal believer before the might and power of today┤s super-rich satanic Úlite who run planetary affairs, including our own governments, the judicuaries system and the police.
"And the Philistine said, 'I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together.' When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid" (1 Sam 17:10-11, NKJV).
Everyone knows what David's response was and the actions he carried out. Though physically a fly compared to the giant, he put his trust in the Most High and let Yahweh use him as a vessel to defeat the blaspheming nephi.
Since last October the world has significantly changed as the ruling powers have gone up one gear in their bid for world domination. Today Yahweh is raising up not one, but many, latter-day David's to stand in opposition, defeat the enemy's attempt to subjugate His people, and to shame (and hopefully lead to repentance) today's cowered Saul's. And that is why so many of these prospective David's are being led through great hardships and oppressions currently in order to spiritually prepare them for future combat. If you've been wondering why the going has been especially tough, this may well be the reason. You're being prepared for major battles to stall and defeat the enemy so that unbelievers and weak believers can see the power of Yahweh and come to active faith.
One last thought. The Saul's of this world can appear to be like the David's. Saul was a brave man in battle and initially defeated the same enemy again and again but something in him either turned (he lost faith) or he was a carnal believer from the beginning. It doesn't really matter which it was. What's important is that when the crunch came, he was lacking, and he was supplanted by one who was more worthy bacause of his deep love for and trust in Yahweh. Expect therefore to see many ministries and their leaders to be overturned.
If you are a Saul, what will you do? Repent and step up to the ranks of the spiritually noble, or persecute the David's as Saul did and ultimately be destroyed? For carnal Christians are no less an adversary to the true believers than those who profess no belief at all but openly hate the children of Elohim along with them. Loyalty to your religion is not the issue but whether you loyal to the Living Messiah. The choice may be yours.
