Turning back the battle at the gate.

Posted by appolus on July 10, 2022

Isa 28:6 Strength to them that turn the battle at the gate. 

The Lord gives strength to His people, to His remnant. Even as the enemy encircles the cities of the world and evil lurks everywhere, God strengthens His people. To those who have lamented and wept over the state of he church and over the state of the world, God sees this and puts His mark upon them. In the previous verse it says that God will be “for a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty to the remnant of His people.” The beauty of the Lord is the beauty of Holiness. His people will shine with the holiness of God and the dark evil world will marvel. They will marvel at our strength and at our resolve to ascend to higher ground. The Lord of Hosts is our higher ground. In Him we shall stand or fall. By Him we shall be unmoved by our enemies. We shall hold the ground and not break ranks even as all the hordes of hell gallop towards us.

The soldiers of the Lord that stand their ground at the gate are those who have, over the years, laid precept upon precept, line upon line. Day after day, week after week and year after year, the saints have walked faithfully in the Lord. They have been taught by Him. They have been tried by Him and they have been tested by Him. He made them walk through fire just so they would meet Him in the middle of the flames. He made them wade through flooded waters just so they would find out that He would not allow the billows to overwhelm them. The faith that they have is no mere head knowledge and is no mere mental assent to abstract truths. There is nothing abstract about the lives of the Lords remnant saints. They have stood the line in the face of withering fire from the enemy. They have been prepared for such a time as this. You have been prepared for such a time as this saint.

You shall not be afraid of the terrors by night nor the arrows that fly by day. You shall stand in the glory of the Lord your God and this is what you shall pray. Holy Holy, Holy is the Lord God almighty. A thousand shall fall by your side and ten thousand by your right hand, but know this saint, you shall surely stand. For you have made the Lord your God your habitation over the years. He has been your high tower and your refuge therefore you shall stand and the evil of this world shall not touch you. You shall stand with the full armor of the Lord, clothed in righteousness and Holiness, and this is why you will stand. You will be strong in the Lord and the power of His might and you shall turn back the battle at the gate. The gates of hell shall not prevail against the Church, for it is built upon and stands immovable upon the Rock, upon the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
