Shouting As A Weapon Of Warfare

LESSON C15

SHOUTING AS A WEAPON OF WARFARE

 

How can shouting become a weapon of warfare? How can somebody just shout and get a victory? From the scriptures, we discovered that some people have shouted before and they got victory. In fact, we know of a particular army that was surrounded on all sides and when they shouted, not only were they delivered out of trouble, they also got a victory. In 2 Chronicles 13:13-18 the Bible says:

 

“But Jer-o-boam caused an ambushment to come about behind them: so they were before Judah, and the ambushment was behind them. And when Judah looked back, behold, the battle was before and behind: and they cried unto the Lord, and the priests sounded with trumpets. Then the men of Judah gave a shout: and as the men of Judah shouted, it came to pass that God smote Jer-o-boam and all Isreal before A-bi-jah and Judah. And the children of Israel fled before Judah: and God delivered them into their hand. And A-bi-jah and his people slew them with a great slaughter: so there fell down slain of Israel five thousand chosen men. Thus, the children of Isreal were brought under at that time, and the children of Judah prevailed because they relied upon the LORD God of their fathers.”

 

 

Here we find an army that was surrounded in front and from behind and then they decided that the only thing they could do was to shout. They all shouted and as soon as they shouted God began to fight for them and I am sure God will fight for me too. Those who are always quiet might be in trouble anytime particularly when it is time to praise God. Those who pray silently particularly in the house of God, do not know what they are missing. Just a single shout can solve all your problems.

 

When You Shout, Certain Things Begin to Happen:

  1. When you shout, it could be a sign that God has accepted your offering (and I want God to accept my offering). Leviticus 9:22-24 says,

          “And Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people and blessed them, and came down from offering of the sin offering; and the burnt        ,       and peace offerings. And Mos`es and Aaron went into the tabernacle        of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the     glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people. And there came a       fire out before the Lord, and consumed upon the altar the burnt    offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted,      and fell on their faces.”

 

They shouted because their offering had been accepted. My own offering has been accepted too because Jesus said my sin offering and His offering had been accepted by God the father, which is one of the reasons he whenever children come to the house of God, they should never be silent. We do not need to beg you before you shout, “Halleluyah”. If you know God has accepted your offering, you should shout.

 

  1. When we shout, it also means God is present in our midst. Usually, whenever the ark of the covenant of God comes into a town, His people also shouted. They shouted because wherever you found the Ark of covenant of God, you also found God. For example in 2 Samuel 6: 15, the Bible

says. “So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting and with the sound of trumpet.”

The same thing in I Chronicles 15:28,

“Thus, all Israel brought the ark of the covenant of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of cornet, and with trumpets, and with cymbals, making a noise with psalteries and harps.”

 

Whenever the Ark of the covenant of God comes into a town, the people will shout because they believe God is present with the Ark of covenant. Therefore when you find a group of the children of God shouting, it is a demonstration of the belief that their God who is a great God is present in their midst. When you are very cold, it is another way of saying,

‘God, I believe you are not around.’ But, I know my God is around.

 

In Isaiah 12:6, the Bible says:

“Cry out and shout, thou inhabitants of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.”

 

The Holy One of Israel is not only great, He is also present in our midst and one of the ways we can show the world that the Lord is present in our midst is by shouting. Because wherever God is, miracles are bound to happen, and when miracles are happening people always shout for joy.

 

  1. You may say I will shout for joy when my miracle happens, but whenever you shout for joy before the Almighty God, it is a demonstration of your belief that you are trusting Him for victory, that He is also going to give you victory. Psalms 5:11 says, “But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.”

 

If you have put your trust in the Lord, the Bible says that you should shout for joy. If you really trust God that He is going to give you victory, there is no reason why you should be silent. When you come before Him, you should shout because you believe the Mighty God in our midst is going to give you victory.

In Psalms 47:1-3, Bible says:

“O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph, for the LORD most high is terrble; he is a great King over all the earth. He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.”

Why did He ask us to clap and shout? He said because God is going to give us victory. He is going to subdue the people under us. He is going to put nations under our feet. He is going to make our victory complete. And we should therefore begin to clap and shout for joy, because our victory is certain.

 

While those of us, who have God in our midst not even know the importance of His presence in our midst, the enemy knows the value of His presence.

 

 

 

  1. In fact, when the enemies hear us shouting they get frightened. Why do they get frightened? Because they know that when we are shouting, our God is present in our midst, and they know that they can defeat you on your own, but when God is present with you, you become indestructible.

For example, I Samuel 4:5-8,

        “And when the ark of the covenant of the Lord came into the camp, all Israel shouted, so that the earth rang again. And when the Philistines heard the noise of the shout, they said, what meaneth the noise of this great shout in the camp of the Hebrews?

And they understood that the ark of the LORD has come into the camp. And the Philistines were afraid, for they said, ‘God is come into the camp’ and they said, ‘woe unto us! For there hath not been such a thing heretofore. Woe unto us! Who shall deliver us out of the hand of these mighty Gods? These are the Gods that smote the Egyptians with all the plagues in the wilderness.”

 

What happened here? The enemy (Philistines) heard the children of Israel shouting for joy and said, what is the meaning of that shouting? What is happening? And they said the Ark of the covenant of their God has come into town. They said, ah, then we are done for. God has come into camp.

 

When you begin to shout in your churches, God will come into your midst, all the enemies around will know that God has at last come to your church, and those who had been trying to bring depression upon your church, those who have been trying to pour water on your enthusiasm, those who have been trying to sneak in and bring sickness and diseases unto the church, they will say, ‘ah! at long last God has come into this church’ and then, they will be afraid and say, woe unto us. We are in trouble now. Their Lord will revenge now.’

 

We always look at some of the churches as being too noisy. But do you know that they always get plenty of miracles? They may be noisy. They may not have enough teachings! But they always get enough of miracles. You attend any of their crusades, before the preacher begins to preach, the people are attracted so much that many of them will be healed even before preaching.

And go to any of the orthodox churches where everything is so solemn, “Oh Lord our God. We must not disturb you today, just like you used to do in the past, if it is your will do something today.” And those who have been sleeping when the pastor has finished preaching will say, “Amen.” They never get a single miracle. Because God does not come into that church, so miracles cannot happen there.

Do not keep silent, begin to shout in your churches. You will be amazed by the number of miracles that will be happening because God will come in, the enemies will be frightened and the enemies will get out. When the enemies get out, miracles will begin to happen. Praise the Lord.

 

Why does shouting bring fear to the enemy? It is not just because when you shout they will know that God has come to the camp. The devil knows that it is written that when you begin to shout, it means that our enemies are finished. The Almighty God said, it is written and the devil knows that when “it is written” nothing can change it. That is why he does all he can to stop you from shouting.

Zephaniah 3: 4:17 ,says:

“Sing o daughter of Zion; shout, o Israel; be glad and rejoice with all thine heart, o daughter of Jerusalem.

The Lord hath taken away thy judgements, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil anymore. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack. The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”

 

Shout and you will see evil no more, that is what is written in Zephaniah Chapter Three: The devil knows that. So when you suddenly begin to shout, he begins to wonder what is it that God has done that gave this fellow the assurance that he will see evil no more? And then he becomes careful because he will think that God must have set a trap for him: he knows that something is going to happen that God had not told him, that is going to put an end to all your enemies.

  1. So when you begin to shout even if you have not seen any miracle, yet as soon as you begin to shout you are prophesying that victory is on the way. That victory is about to happen right there and I need a lot of miracles right now which is one of the reasons why I am going to do some shouting today.

Joshua 6:20 says:

“So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.”

When the people shouted, the wall fell. When you shout, you are prophesying that victory is about to happen, that your victory is imminent, that miracles are just about to occur.

For example in John 11:43, everybody knows that Jesus Christ is a very gentle man, He never lifted His voice before. When He wants to pray for the people, He might say, “I will, be thou clean;” “Okay, receive thy sight,” “Thy faith had made thee whole;” “Young man, I say unto thee, arise.” But when He came face to face with a big miracle, somebody who has been dead for four days, that fellow is now about to be raised from the dead, when a totally hopeless situation is about to be turned round, even Jesus shouted.

 

Look at John 11:43: “And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.”

 

When He had thus spoken, He cried with a loud voice. When you shout, you are prophesying that a victory is about to happen; that your victory is certain.
