Rallies, Strategies, & the Holy Spirit

So the king of Israel went with the king of Judah and the king of Edom, and they marched on that roundabout route seven days; and there was no water for the army, nor for the animals that followed them. -2Kings 3:9

King Jehoram knew how to rally the troops. As a matter of fact he managed to land King Jehoshaphat and the King of Edom to fight on his behalf. King Jehoram even had a fail-proof strategy – to march his three-kingdom army through the badlands of Edom and stage a surprise attack. But King Jehoram forgot the water. In the middle of a desert land – he forgot the water.

Scripturally, “water” is emblematic of blessing, baptism, salvation, prosperity, the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God. For the Christian to forget the water – is a serious thing. The other two (rallies and strategies) are a necessary part of the spiritual battle to which we are called – but we must not forget the water.
