Remember Amalek

Deuteronomy 25:17 says, “Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt.”

God commands Israel not to forget what Amalek did. The children of Israel were to keep close the memory of a day the enemy attacked the aged, the weary, and the children. As the people of God were leaving Egypt, which typifies a type of the world, they were attacked by Amalek, a type of the flesh. For this, it is written for all to see, “remember Amalek.”

The strategies of Satan have not changed much throughout decades of time. God didn’t want His people to forget how the enemy attacked them after they were delivered from Egypt, after they were set free from bondage. He wants them to remember that the enemy attacks the weak, the children, the aged. That he attacks at the hindmost, in other words, from the rear or from behind. God wants them to remember Amalek, and so it is with us, He wants us to remember Amalek (the flesh, the enemy) as well.

Remember, our enemy will attack us from the hindmost; when we least expect it. He will attack us when we are weak or weary. He will attack us when we have victory or deliverance; after a Bible study, ministry, or anything that glorifies God in our lives. Note: the instructions are not to stand on guard with your sword, though there is a time for battle, God is specific in this passage: only to “Remember!”

Thank God, for He has paved the way for us to know what we need for victory in this life! “… He hath given us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him…” 2 Peter 1:3 Pastor
