Our God is a Warrior




Acts 5:17 (NKJV)

17 the high priest rose up, and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with indignation, 18 and laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. 19 But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, 20 “Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.”

 

In attempts to silence the apostles' proclamation that the power of God is greater than the unclean spirits who tormented people, those who loved their religion more than God Himself captured the apostles and bound them into prison. The false_religious leaders thought that throwing these men into prison would silence the power of God. And so the apostles were fenced in by darkness and prison walls. It could seem as if evil had conquered good.


However, in an awesome way, verse 19 says "but at night". Why? Because nighttime is often used to represent times when evil is its strongest. Daniel was trapped in a den of vicious lions at night. The disciples were caught in a storm at night. Judas betrayed Jesus at night. Dark and sinful times.


So here in Acts 5 verse 19, it takes evil about 40 words to accomplish what it wanted, but it only takes God less than 20 words to outperform and undo what evil tried to do. It's like some migit like me going for a three pointer and Shaq just stands there in front of me and blocks my shot by merely lifting up his pinky. It would take him no effort.


Our God is a warrior who will never be conquered. Evil may appear strong, but God is categorically and of a different galaxy stronger. It's almost inaccurate to even compare God's power to evils power. There really is no match. There is no accurate comparison.


What a wonderful savior is Jesus my Lord.
