My post today deals with divine warfare.
In the biblical concept of holy war, it was important for Israel to remember that it was Yahweh who fought the battle for his people. Those fighting Yahweh’s war had to have faith and trust in him and not succumb to fear. Over and over, Yahweh repeats the formulaic battle cry, “Do not be afraid or dismayed.” Variations of this battle cry is found all over the Old Testament.
