WALKING WITH GOD #19 3rd-Deuteronomy 20
God encouraged his people to conquer the land by defeating enemies. It means conquering the enemy’s land and expanding God’s kingdom.
God allowed taking plunder and land as an inheritance to his people while warns not to teach abominable practices to the gods of each tribe, the Hittites, Amorites, and the Canaanites.
God encouraged people, “Let not your heart faint. Do not fear or panic or be in dread of them. At this point, I came up with the story of David’s battle with Goliah.
The Bible explicitly says the victory of war is to belong to God, not people.
