Day after day more men joined David until he had a great army, like the army of God. 1 Chronicles 12:22
In the old covenant, we can see that God made covenant with Abraham, Moses and David. In this passage, we can see that day after day more men joined David. Its not because of David but because of the Spirit of God. In 1 Chronicles 12:18, God’s Word says,
“Then the Spirit came on Amasai, chief of the Thirty, and he said:
“We are yours, David!
We are with you, son of Jesse!
Success, success to you,
and success to those who help you,
for your God will help you.”
Today, God made a new everlasting covenant with our Lord Jesus Christ. In this new covenant, Holy Spirit is convicting the world of it’s sin and God’s righteousness that is in Christ Jesus. As like how the Spirit of God spoke to Amasai in the old covenant to join David, today He is speaking to people to believe in Jesus and “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” If anyone believe then they will receive salvation. In Acts, 2:47, we can see that Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
God wants no one to perish, still many are perishing because of the hardening of hearts. Today, those who believe are in the Kingdom of God! Yes, He adds people in the church where Jesus is the head of the church. Today, our battle is not against flesh or blood, but its a Spiritual warfare and we always have victory in Jesus! We are under grace and the sin shall not rule over us. Let us remain in Jesus and live victoriously by doing His will in every aspects of our life for His glory! Amen!
