Military Preparation Prevents Wars
And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known
unto us, and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we
returned all of us to the wall,every one unto his work (Neh. 4:15.)
The crisis passed without a battle. Why? Because they were ready
to fight! Being prepared to fight is the greatest deterrent to war.
But the Jews did learn from Bible doctrine and from their own
God the Holy Spirit is telling us something in verse 15: there is a
relationship between spiritual life and military preparation.
"Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven."
Heavenly Father, since I want to be forgiven, help me be forgiving.
In Christ name I pray
