BIBLICAL KRYPTONITE?? “And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitant s of the mountain; but COULD NOT drive out the inhabitants of the valley, BECAUSE THEY HAD CHARIOTS OF “IRON”.” (Judges 1:19)

BIBLICAL KRYPTONITE?? ”   says Mikaeel Do you think so?  I don’t.

Judges 1: 18-19 Also Judah took Gaza with the coast thereof, and Askelon with the coast thereof, and Ekron with the coast thereof. And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out [the inhabitants of] the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.

This Moslem seems to think that Gods failure here was a weakness, when in fact it was strength.  The god of Islam wants slaves and slaves that are prepared to kill and be killed.  Therefore there seems to be little concern over the death of his slaves.  However the true God of the Bible has a more caring attitude.  One of which he does not send his people into to be mowed down just for the fun of it.  Flesh and bone does not match well against a chariot.  Whilst Israeli armour was limited, their troop’s poorly trained, they were able to take on armies far better equipped and far better trained and destroy them.

However those same Chariots that appeared to be so phenomenal were also rendered useless against the mountainous regions of Israel.  So those nations who had them could not use them either against Israeli forces.  In the process of time as Israel grew those chariots were taken.

The issue was not God’s lack of power but Israeli faith to take those Chariots.  So it is with every believer.  We all have our chariots to overcome, and problems that seem insurmountable.  God is far more patient than we are.  Sometimes it just takes time to overcome.  Sometimes our faith needs to grow before we can tackle our problems

Yet in the process of time those giants that face us will be overcome.  This will not be the first time, nor the last time will Israel face a giant.  Sometimes it took a lad with a sling to show others that insurmountable problems are not so big after all.
