2 Samuel 23:9-10
Next to him was Eleazar son of Dodai the Ahohite. As one of the three mighty men, he was with David when they taunted the Philistines gathered at Pas Dammim for battle.Then the men of Israel retreated, but he stood his ground and struck down the Philistines till his hand grew tired and froze to the sword. The LORD brought about a great victory that day.
Eleazar’s name literally means ‘WHOM GOD HELPS’
· His lineage is a family of WARRIORS...Fighters for God
· He was WELL-VERSED, WELL-SKILLED in the combat arts—SPIRITUALLY TRAINED----
· In short—ELEAZAR WAS A JEDI!!!

· Eleazar TAUNTED his enemy because he had confidence in His King and His sword
· HIS HAND FROZE TO THE SWORD!!!!

o Two things happened here:
§ The blood was so thick from the carnage that it dried around his hand where it became enmeshed
§ The grip was so tight his sword couldn’t be removed from him......

ELEAZAR—STOOD HIS GROUND AND SWANG THAT SWORD AND WRECKED HAVOC!!!
· He studied – practiced with that sword
· Knew every inch of the blade
· Sharpened it---worked with it...
· It was already an extension of him BEFORE THE BATTLE BEGAN....

ELEAZAR’S VICTORY was decisive---OTHER’S Picked up the spoils....
ELEAZAR WAS WEARY.... but God gave him the victory.......
THE BIBLE says that THE WORD OF GOD is a WEAPON......A SWORD......
YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR SWORD!!!!—use it....BUT GOD WILL GIVE YOU VICTORY....

MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE...
TREAT your Bible the same way as ELEAZAR treated HIS SWORD....

Jeremiah 1:12(AMP)
Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.
