Scripture: 1 Samuel 7:10,11
1 Samuel 7:10,11 says, “Now as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel. But the LORD thundered with a loud thunder upon the Philistines that day, and so confused them that they were overcome before Israel. And the men of Israel went out of Mizpah and pursued the Philistines, and drove them back as far as below Beth Car.” Here again we see God’s willingness to answer over one purpose – to go to war on behalf of His people. How can we read the Bible and completely miss who God is as a Man of War? God is at war against evil!
