Take Up Your Cross November 14th 2015

God’s Word was written in ancient times but always relevant.

And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi: For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation. (Exodus 17:14-16 KJV)

God commanded Moses in ancient biblical times to record in written form and to repeat it for Joshua to hear and comprehend all details of the battle with the Amalekite people.  The Jewish people were delivered from these enemies by the mighty hand of God.  Moses was to keep this battle alive as a memorial for future generations by recording it.  This war in the Old Testament was a battle God used to deliver His people from their spiritual enemies. God’s Word

Not only did Moses record this battle according to inspiration of God he constructed an altar naming it Jehovahnissi which means Jehovah is my banner.  The written record and the altar were to remind man in future generations of this particular battle and how God would also provide sure victory to future generations as they faced Amalekite’s.

The Amalekite’s are descendants of a tribe of Arabic people living on earth today.
