Abraham’s 318

In the battle of Thermopylae where the 300 Spartans along with a few thousands Greeks withstood the 70,000 -100,000 Persians is the stuff of legends and has inspired many armies to face the odds and win. Gideon had 300 and faced the Midianites and Amalekites who were as numerous as locusts – God gave him a strategy to advance and win in spite of what he had. Let’s look at some of the reasons for Abraham’s success in war and why he and Sarah were called a father and mother of faith and of nations.

Constant Care From God

John 17 – Oh Holy Father maintain a watchful care over them in your name, which you have given me, in order that they may be one as we are one.

And I guided them and no one of them were lost except the son of perdition, in order that the scriptures might be fulfilled.

Paul’s defense of his Apostleship provides the spiritual technology for unveiling the inner workings of an apostolic mind-set and behavioral patterns for an apostolic reformation church.
