๐Ÿ‘‘ On the Brink of Extinction

The extinction of the dodo bird has beenย so well known for such a long time that itย has given rise to the expression, โ€œdead as aย dodo.โ€ There is, however, another dodo thatย we fear is also on the verge of extinction:

โ€œEleazar the son of Dodoโ€ฆsmote theย Philistines until his hand was weary, andย his hand clave unto the sword: and the Lordย wrought a great victory that dayโ€ฆโ€ (II Sam.ย 23:9,10).

Eleazarโ€™s name appears here among a listย of โ€œthe mighty men whom David hadโ€ (v. 8),ย and in smiting the Philistines until โ€œhis hand clave unto the swordโ€ย and they literally had to pry his fingers from the hilt, this dedicatedย soldier proved himself mighty indeed! What an inspiration this makesย him to those of us who are called upon by God to โ€œendure hardness, asย a good soldier of Jesus Christโ€ (II Tim. 2:3)โ€”and that would include allย who name the name of Christ.

It is the duty of every believer to โ€œputย on the whole armour of Godโ€ (Eph. 6:11), armor which includes โ€œtheย sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of Godโ€ (Eph. 6:17). Continueย to use it even when someone tells you they donโ€™t believe the Bibleย is Godโ€™s Word. No soldier ever sheathed his sword just because hisย opponent said he didnโ€™t believe it would cut! source

Bible Verse for 4/20/19

But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. — 1 Corinthians 15:20-22
