Zechariah 4:6-7 The True Superhero’s Power
6 Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts. 7 ‘What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’”
DC has Superman & Marvel has The Incredible Hulk, both very strong characters in the comic book universe. They both were created by creative artists & storytellers, they both have weaknesses. The Hulk is only strong when he is angry & Superman loses his strength when near kryptonite. Zechariah says the Spirit of the Lord is better than might & power. From 1 Samuel 17 will you read about the Spirit of God at work. There is a battle scene between Israel & Philistines, a giant Philistine step forward & he is heavily armored & he challenges the army of Israel, they were all afraid. A small shepherd boy named David, accepts the giants challenge, only armed with a sling & stones. When giant sees David he laugh & mocks him, but David replies with confidence,
1 Samuel 17:46 This day the Lord will deliver you up into my hands, and I will strike you down and remove your head from you. And I will give the dead bodies of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the sky and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel,
When David releases the stone from his sling, the Spirit of God directs it to hit the giant in his forehead & he falls to the earth. David then slowly walked to the giant’s, took the giant’s sword & cut off his head. Many times in Scripture, God will use a weak & small person to win many great battles. Dear brothers & sisters, don’t give praise to the replacement gods of marvel & DC, praise the Holy Spirit of God. Let the Lord be your hero & you will never be disappointed. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you & so do I. Sam H.
