(* The following is from Doug’s bestseller, Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass)
“Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.” – Psalm 68:1-3
If you listen to a lot of believers nowadays, they’re always talking about the power of the Devil, the power of evil, and the pervasiveness of perversion.
In other words, there’s a big Anti-Christ and a small Jesus Christ.
Now, granted, they won’t say those exact words but that’s how they speak. Like there’s not an awesome God that we serve who can kick some major, and I mean, major demonic and evil peoples’ backsides.
David didn’t have a pipsqueak view of God and that was way before the resurrection and ascension when ALL authority in heaven and earth was given to Jesus Christ and not the Devil. Hello.
Indeed, in Psalm 68, David said that God …
1. Scattered enemies.
2. Melts ‘em like wax.
3. Makes ‘em perish in His presence.
4. Shakes the earth.
5. Makes kings of armies flee.
6. Scatters kings.
7. Has thousands upon thousands of warring angels.
8. Takes captive captivity.
9. Daily loads us down with benefits.
10. Wounds the head of the enemy.
11. Is “terrible” in His strength and power.
Is that how you hear little Christians describe God today? No? I didn’t think so. But that’s how David described his awesome God. Y’know … the God of the Bible? Enjoy and share Psalm 68 with people who need a bigger image of God.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
