COL 1:16 For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him:

HEB 13:5…for He has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.

“give us Barabbas”

Little did Barabbas know that he was living an illustration of God’s mercy and love toward all mankind.

ROM 5:12, Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.

ROM 5:18-19, So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made Righteous.

1. We are justly condemned as sinners.
2. Jesus was innocent and yet took our place so that we do not suffer spiritual death. Jesus as the innocent sufferer has taken our place as the condemned.
3. We have done nothing to merit that substitution.
4. Christ’s substitution in our place satisfied the law or God’s Justice.

GAL 2:20-21, I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Pilate said to Him,“What is truth?”

I can do all through Him who gives me strength.

in God’s great plan, nothing goes to waste.

2CO 12:9, But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

In spite of man’s efforts for peace throughout the ages, warfare will exist until the Millennium,

MAT 24:6-7, “And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for {those things} must take place, but {that} is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.”

MAT 26:52, Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.”

Under the laws of divine establishment, all national freedom and security comes through military victory, or it comes from the respect of that military from past victories, or even from the potential for victory…a perceived power,

The spiritual factor which is Bible doctrine in the soul, prayer plays a role, as these things exist in the pivot of positive believers, and of course the grace of God.
The establishment factor which for us as a client nation includes the military protecting the institution of nationalism, as well as the pivot protecting the other divine institutions.

There must exist in the national entity a capable professional staff of high ranking military officers and top enlisted non com officers whose life is devoted to preparing and planning for war, not looking for war but prepared for war.

2SA 22:35, “He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.”

PSA 144:1, ({A Psalm} of David.) “Blessed be the Lord, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, {And} my fingers for battle;”

Military training is designed to give you a scale of values you’ll never get in any other way. It prepares you for life.

To destroy a client nation destruction of the military must occur, destroy it by weakening it, by having overreaching and unrealistic ROE’s, this always happens when politicians tell soldiers how to fight. It is weakened by having leaders who are not for nationalism, by using the military against its own citizens in any realm however benign looking, by females in combat roles,

that’s the importance of the pivot of positive believers.

HEB 11:32-34, And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, who by faith conquered kingdoms…from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.

They both have leadership characteristics; they understand, posses and use self discipline and therefore they can instill group discipline.

They both have a relaxed mental attitude, common sense, a sense of responsibility, understanding of strategy and tactics, and leadership, they show loyalty to those both above and below them.

They have poise, courtesy, good judgment, and the ability to delegate responsibility to the right people they have discernment and the ability to hold those accountable for their actions as well as pass on the praise when it is due.

JUD 6:1-3, Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD, and for seven years He gave them into the hands of the Midianites. Because the power of Midian was so oppressive, the Israelites prepared shelters for themselves in mountain clefts, caves and strongholds. Whenever the Israelites planted their crops, the Midianites, Amalekites and other eastern peoples invaded the country.

“If you persist in remaining silent at such a time, relief and deliverance will come to the Jews from another place, but both you and the house of your father will perish. Who knows? Perhaps you have come to the throne for just a time as this.”

Haman is a descendant of King Agag.
