MEDITATE ON THESE SCRIPTURES:
1 Samuel 23:28:
(New International Version:
Then Saul broke off his pursuit of David and went to meet the Philistines. That is why they call this place Sela Hammahlekoth.
(New Living Translation)
So Saul quit chasing David and returned to fight the Philistines. Ever since that time, the place where David was camped has been called the Rock of Escape.
2 SAMUEL 22:2-3 (KJV)
And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence
PSALM 28:1-2 (NASB)
To You, O Lord, I call; My rock, do not be deaf to me, For if You are silent to me, I will become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help, When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.
PSALM 62:1-2 (KJV)
Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
PSALM 62:5-8 (KJV)
My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us
PSALM 62:11-12 (KJV)
God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
PSALM 144:1 (DARBY)
Blessed be Jehovah my rock, Who teacheth my hands to war, And my fingers to fight
PSALM 94:22-23 (KJV)
But the LORD is my defence, and my God is the rock of my refuge. And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.
PSALM 92:12-15 (KJV)
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
PSALM 91:1-2 (KJV)
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
PSALM 89:20-37 (KJV)
20. I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:
21. With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.
22. The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
23. And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.
24. But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
25. I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.
26. He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.
27. Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
28. My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
29. His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
30. If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;
31. If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;
32. Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
33. Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
34. My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
35. Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.
36. His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
37. It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah
1. BEFORE WE BEGIN THESE WARFARE PRAYERS, I WANT YOU TO SING THIS POPULAR HYMN
ROCK OF AGES CLEFT FOR ME
Rock of ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee
Let the water and the blood
From thy riven side which flowed
Oh, be of sin the double cure
Cleanse me from its guilt and power
Nothin’ in my hand I bring
Simply to Thy cross I cling
Naked, come to Thee for dress
Helpless, look to Thee for grace
Vile, I to the fountain fly
Wash me, Savior, or I die
Rock of ages Cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee
2. THE FIRST CRUDE WEAPONRY OF MAN IS THE ROCK. MAN HAS LEARNT TO USE THE FLINTY ROCK FOR HUNTING, IN BATTLE, AND IN WARFARES FROM AGES PAST. MAN LEARNT FROM THE ANCIENT TIMES TO USE THE CLEFT OF ROCKS AS CAVES OF HIS HABITATION. ROCK IS ONE OF THE CLOSEST FRIENDS OF MAN. TO PROTECT HIMSELF AND TO USE IN CONQUESTS.
3. THE ROCK IS ONE OF THE MOST ENDURING CREATION OF THE ALMIGHTY. IT IS NO SURPRISE GOD IS CALLED THE ROCK OF ISRAEL (GENESIS 49:24).
4. BEHOLD, I SHOW YOU A DEEP MYSTERY TODAY. ARE YOU GOING THROUGH A WILDERNESS EXPERIENCE? IS EVERYTHING YOU DESIRE FLED FROM YOU? YOU CAN INVOKE THE POWER OF THE ROCK OF ISRAEL INTO YOUR SITUATION. THE ROCK FOLLOWED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL IN THE 40 YEARS WILDERNESS JOURNEY. HE POURED FORTH WATERS 💦 💦 💦 THAT GUSHED OUT FOR THEM TO DRINK IN THE HOWLING WILDERNESS FOR 40 YEARS (1 CORINTHIANS 10:4 NLT) and all of them drank the same spiritual water. For they drank from the spiritual rock that traveled with them, and that rock was Christ.
GOD CAN BE YOUR WATER-DISPENSING BOULDER IN YOUR DRY DESERT AND ARID WILDERNESS, IF YOU KNOW THIS SECRET (EXODUS 17:3–6; NUMBERS 20:1–11)
5. MAN CANNOT STAND THE BLAZING GLORY OF GOD WITHOUT THE PROTECTIVE CLEFT OF HIS ROCK (EXODUS 33:22) – And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by
YOU CAN ASK GOD TO TAKE YOU ON A SPIRITUAL TOUR OF THE HOLLOW OF HIS HAND SO YOU CAN ENJOY HIS BLAZING GLORY.
6. MOSES WAS THE MOST HUMBLE MAN THAT EVER LIVED. HE HAD STRANGE ENCOUNTERS WITH GOD, LIKE NO OTHER LIVING MAN. THIS SAME MOSES CALLED GOD THE ROCK. (DEUTERONOMY 32:1-4 KJV) – Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. 4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he
7. THE ROCK IS LIKE A PREFIX TO GOD’S NAMES. IT’S LIKE CALLING SOMEBODY MR. JOHN, MR. DOWELL, MR. ROBINSON. THE PREFIX DISTINGUISHES THE BEARER AS A MALE DIFFERENT FROM PREFIX OF MRS.
WE ARE GOING INTO PRAYERS NOW BY UNLEASHING THE PREFIX ROCK IN BATTLE. GET READY.
