V. SERMONIC THEME: “GIANTS, KEEP ON COMING”

INTRODUCTION: (PARARELL…HOW…..WE (AS CHRISTIANS) EXPEREINCE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS…using some of the scriptures above…)

Who can ever forget the story of David and Goliath?…THE UNDERDOG BRINGING DOWN THE GIANT STRUGGLES AND SPIRTUAL BATTLES OF LIFE)….

NOW…TRADITIONALLY, WITHOUT…GIVING MUCH THOUGHT TO THE SUBJECT MATTER…MOST OF US HAVE CONCLUDED THAT…THE STORY OF DAVID’S BATTLE…WITH GOLIATH…IS…THE …SUM TOTAL OF DAVID’S EXPERIENCE AND …DEALINGS WITH GIANTS…

BUT, ACCORDING TO OUR TEXT…(FOUND IN 2 SAMUEL 21)…TODAY…MANY YEARS LATER…

AFTER DAVID….HAD BECOME KING…, A SEASONED WARRIOR,…AND AN OLD MAN…

HE…HAD TO FIGHT…OTHER GIANTS…IN HIS LIFE…

****************TAKE 5 BEATS***************

MOVE 1: IN FACT, OUR SCRIPTURES, TODAY…REMIND…US…THAT

YEARS…AFTER DAVID’S BATTLE WITH GOLIATH…THE

PHILISTIAN GIANT…

a. THERE LIVED…ANOTHER GIANT..WHO SOUGHT TO KILL HIM…FOR HE WAS THE SON OF GOLIATH…

b. FOR…THE BIBLE DECLARES…THAT THIS SON OF GOLIATH WORE A NEW SUIT OF ARMOUR…AND HIS …NAME WAS…ISH-BI-BENOB…

c. ISH-BE-BENOB…WAS COLASSAL…IN FACT…HE WAS SO HUGE…THAT THE TIP OF HIS…SPEAR…(ALONG)…WEIGHED OVER 12 POUNDS….

d. THEREFORE, MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS…LET US BE PRAYERFUL AND WATCH-OUT FOR THE SONS OF GOLIATH…IN OUR LIVES…

e. BECAUSE…SOMETIMES,…IT TAKES MORE THAN A SMOOTH STONE TO DEFEAT GOLIATH SON…

f. THIS IS BECAUSE….SOME GOLIATHS…ARE WORSE THAN OTHERS; FOR YOU SEE…SOME ARE STRONGER; MORE CUNNING AND MORE RUTHLESS…

g. SO RUTHLESS, THAT THEY WILL WAIT…UNTIL WE GROW OLD AND WEARY…BEFORE THEY BREAK OUT WITH THEIR NEW SWORD…

h. STILL…MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS…THE BATTLE DOESN’T

BELONG… TO US…. AND IT DIDN’T BELONG TO DAVID…IT WAS STILL GOD’S WAR…

i. SO,…GOD MOVED UPON ONE OF DAVID’S SOLDIERS…(BY THE NAME OF …AB-IS-HAI),…TO …MARCH…TO DAVID’S RESCUE…

j. AND…IT WAS AT THAT POINT IN TIME…THAT DAVID’S

SOLDIERS COLLECTIVELY…. BEGAN TO OPENLY EXPRESS…SOME

CONCERNS FOR …DAVID’S HEALTH AND WELL-BEING…

k. BY TELLING HIM…”THOU SHALT GO NO MORE..OUT WITH US TO BATTLE, THAT THOU QUENCH NOT THE LIGHT OF ISRAEL.”

l. ….AFTERWARDS…DAVID’S TROOPS FOUGHT AGAIN…THIS TIME…THEY SLEW GOLIATH’S BROTHER…WHO WAS ALSO A GAINT.
