The movies of today can’t hold a candle to some of the action in the Old Testament. This chapter reads like a modern action movie. When Johanen and his officers come to rescue the survivors left in Mizpah, they provided armed escort to a safe place far away from Ishmael and the Ammonites.
For the Christian, the promise of safety is not led by an armed escort. II Timothy 4:18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to is heavenly kingdom. To him be glory forever and ever. Amen.
