if you have your Bibles open them with

me to the book uh First Kings chapter 20

and we’re going to read a story in the

Old Testament that the Lord laid on my

heart this week and I want you to let it

speak to you look in first Kings chapter

20 it starts bad but it ends good now

Ben Hadad the king of Syria gathered all

his forces together 32 kings were with

him with horses and chariots he went up

in seed Samaria and made war against it

when he sent Messengers into the city to

Ahab king of Israel and said to him thus

says Ben

Hadad want to mention that that he was

named after his father his father’s name

was haad and it

means the king of

whirlwinds his father was such a brutal

man and now the

son which notice the terminology of the

words it talks about I’m going to make

you like dust that’s he’s saying I Am

The Reincarnation of my father and I’m

coming to destroy like a

whirlwind verse three listen to the

enemy your silver and your gold are mine

your loveliest wives and children are

mine the king of Israel answered and

said oh my Lord oh King just as you said

say no

resistance no

opposition you want my family you want

my marriage you want my business you

want my

finances just as you

say and all that I have is yours verse

five then the messenger came back

because the devil never stops once you

let him in he takes more and he takes

more he comes to kill steal and destroy

he never stops if you let him in he

keeps taking if you don’t

learn how to resist the enemy he will

never flee he’ll keep

coming and the messenger came back and

said thus says Ben hey Dad saying I

indeed I have sent you saying you shall

deliver me your silver your gold your

wives and your children but I send my

servants to you tomorrow about this time

and they will search your house

coming in your house the houses of your

servants and it shall be that whatever

is Pleasant in your eyes anything that

brings you pleasure anything that brings

you Joy anything that makes

you just be glad to be alive or it means

something is really precious to you and

pleasant when you think about it I’m

taking it I’m taking it whatever is

Pleasant in your eyes they will put it

in their hands and take it

so the king of Israel called the Elders

of the land he said’ notice please how

these men seek trouble they’ve sent me

and sent for my wives and children

silver and gold and I did not deny him

and the elders and all the people said

to him it’s bad when the people have to

tell the leader how to

lead do not listen or

consent therefore he said to The

Messengers of Ben dad tell my Lord the

king all that you sent your servant I

was willing to do but this thing I

cannot do and The Messengers departed

and he came back and that’s when he says

in verse 10 I’ll make you like I’ll come

like a whirlwind like won’t nothing be

left but dust verse 11 finally The

Narrative change the narrative

changes so the king of Israel after

saying yes yes yes you can have it you

can have it tell him let not the one who

puts his armor on boast like he who

takes it

off verse 13 suddenly a prophet

approached Ahab king of Israel and God

said I’ll deliver the enemy into your

hand I want to talk to you for a few

minutes about this story because I

believe it’s a powerful lesson you hear

a lot in the media today about

controlling the narrative you hear it in

politics you hear it in sports you hear

it in even in in in controversies and

crisis whoever controls the narrative

controls the outcome that’s the thought

that’s what people believe if you keep

saying it doesn’t matter what the truth

is just control the narrative and you

will control the

outcome and in this story it’s

like Ben haad this evil Syrian King and

his army links up with 32 other kings

because he had tried to conquer Israel

before you read it again and again and

yet again it says and yet again they

came against Israel and he couldn’t

defeat them but this time was different

because he hired 32 different nations

their kings and their armies against

one group of

farmers the

Israelites and it was because Ben Hadad

knew the power of their God

and there’s that moment when the elders

spoke to Ahab with such Authority that

they said don’t consent what do you mean

you you he he sent he kept taking and

you haven’t stood up there comes that

moment when the whole Narrative of the

story changes because if you change the

narrative you change the

outcome so many of us just sit back and

let the enemy attack and we think we are

helpless and that’s just how it goes and

we don’t have any say so but I’ve come

today to preach about when

Victory begins to discover that it has a

voice don’t let the enemy do all the

trash talking don’t let the enemy do all

the threats and the fear mongering among

your life don’t let the world and other

people’s opinion even control The

Narrative of your life

you have to get to that moment and I

love it because there came that moment

when something snapped in

him something said I have surrendered

and gave up all that I’m going to give

up I’m taking everything you’ve got been

hey Dad said and he said I was when I

started this conversation okay and some

of you have your back against the wall

the enemy is coming right now like a

flood like a

whirlwind and he’s promising to reduce

you down to ashes and nothing but dust

and I love the power of an anointed

service because you’re watching me on

television and the enemy said I want

your gold and your silver and your

business is under attack and he and he’s

coming he said I want your children

children and your children are under

attack and your marriage is I want your

wife I want your husband it’s all

hitting on every front and then he’s

going through saying I’m going to take

the pleasure and the joy out of life I’m

going to make you so miserable so man

that you can’t even enjoy you don’t have

peace I want you sucking your teeth I

want you negative I want you walking

around just hating life and bitter and

angry and mad and

upset everything Pleasant I’m coming out


it and that might be how you walked in

here but you came to the wrong service

and you’re watching the wrong

program because the prophet showed up

with a word from the Lord in the text

that I read and that word is still alive

in this year in this day in this hour

and in our lives and our

families even a rabbit when a gets away

from um from a

predator you know they do something look

this up don’t do it while I’m preaching

but but look this

up when they have a victory in their

life and they escape they’ll get

somewhere and just jump up in the air

and kick one leg out it’s called a binky

they do the

binky I mean a little rabbit can get

away from a fox and say the devil

thought he had me but he he didn’t have

me and and and he’ll jump up and kicking

some of you God’s giv you a job giving

you a house blessed you coming in

blessed you going out and you’re still

too sophisticated to give God a shout I

don’t care if you’re Baptist Methodist

Presbyterian Catholic I don’t care what

you are you ought to give him a praise

if he been good even nature says the

Victor ought to Make Some Noise clap

your hands all ye people and shout unto

God god with the voice of

Triumph listen to this first Corinthians

everybody say victory victory has a

voice look how big this voice and look

how big this is 1 Corinthians 15 says

this this Incorruptible shall put on

incorruption this Mortal has put on


then shall it be brought to pass the

same death notice the wording is how do

you swallow unless you got a

mouth death is swallowed up in

Victory victory’s got a mouth that can

if he can if Jesus

could give voice he’s saying if I don’t

care what you’re facing

if I can conquer death I can conquer

anything and I have swallowed up

death in

Victory whatever whenever your team is

winning you’re supposed to be the


team talk victory

walk into the battle with the word of

God even Jesus when he comes back after

the Rapture takes place the nation of

Israel will be surrounded and the Bible

said all nations will turn against

Israel and folks were seeing it right

before our eyes they’re still fighting

that Ben he dad Spirit that’s all that

is how can you like this story and not

love those people

but the Bible says it’s one of the

prophecies that every nation in the

world will turn their back on

Israel and in that


God Jesus Christ will get on a white

horse and ride down into the ve Valley

of magto where the armies look like

they’re going to win and he will open

his mouth

and just when it looks like all the

armies are going to destroy Israel your

Bible said a sword will come out of his

mouth and consume the Antichrist and

consume the false prophet and consume

the Beast oh

Hallelujah death will be swallowed up in

Victory and I want to say if you’ve lost

someone that you love why don’t you make

your narrative instead of it’s so sad

and the pleasure’s gone and there’s no

joy left why don’t you change the

narrative and give Victory a voice and

say death you have been swallowed up in

Victory because of Jesus there’s an

empty tomb and there is eternal life

I pray today

that there would be a

holy losing

it that people like Ahab but there’s

that train fighter and then there’s

those people that just lose it in the

moment and something just takes

over I tell you part of the battle that

we’re in is when you decide

to give Victory a

voice in the

situation all things so what what how do

I give it a voice walk out of here

number one saying he’s with me Jesus is

with me he never will leave me there’s

nothing that can ever make him leave me

he is with me I’m going to be all right

I’m not promising you that everything’s

going to change I’m promising you that

whatever pack of lines you have lined in

you have to go into whatever fiery

furnish you have to walk through you’re

going to find Jesus said I’ll never

leave you I’ll never forsake you I’ll

dry your tears I’ll weeping will endure

for the night I’m going to bring joy in

the morning the sun’s going to shine

number one number two my Bible said you

should walk out change the narrative by

saying this all

things well since I got a stage all

things work

together for the

good you don’t believe

that not just the good things not just

the pleasant things not just the


things but all

things work

together oh man I can walk in

confidence I can say well I don’t

understand this I don’t

understand how eggs and flour and

salt and sugar over

here are going to make me a good cupcake

I don’t get

it well the reason that it’s not good is

it’s not all together

yet all you’re tasting is the salty part

all you’re tasting is the baking soda

all you’re tasting is the flour

but when he puts it all together

actually I don’t talk about my WIS I

talk about how I was so low that I

didn’t know how I was going to make it

now I can Praise Him it makes me love

him more not just the winds thank God

for it but it’s the

struggles all works

together for the good so change the

narrative quit talking defeat and

disaster and depression and hopelessness

death has been swallowed up in Victory

what can the enemy do to you but give

you a shortcut to

Heaven I want you to stand to your feet

at every

campus no one moving

I want to take a moment to thank every

single one of you who support this

ministry because you have given us the

resources we needed to stand in

unwavering support for the nation of

Israel during this time of War on

October the 7th the peaceful Villages of

Esco faced an unthinkable a merciless

Invasion by Hamas terrorist Soldiers the

aftermath left a community shattered

especially its vulnerable members the

children the elderly some even Holocaust

Survivors the pregnant mothers and the

wounded marred men and women this is the

same region that for the last 5 years we

have been building lifegiving projects

such as a fire station fortified Kingdom

play school fortified bomb shelters that

saved many many lives during the attack

on October the 7th and we give God the

glory for that and so we ask our friends

and the people that we partnered with on

so many buildings and so many works that

we’ve worked with there what do you need

during this time of war and they were

instantly very clear in their request

they said what we need is we need the

esol resilience Center this building

will serve as a Beacon of Hope it will

be a place where shattered lives will be

mended and broken hearts will find peace

it will provide treatment for PTSD that

is almost every child every human being

that was there they need some help

mentally and they are shaken they are

wounded in their souls and in their

Spirits because they watch their own

loved ones slaughtered and killed

there’s no family there that was not

personally affected in massive massive

ways these horrifying attacks that

happen on October the 7th and we must

never forget we must never stop standing

with Israel and even though the news has

moved on for the most part we continue

to pray and give support in every way we

can even during the ongoing War because

we need to stand with Israel God said

I’ll bless those that bless Israel and

I’m asking you today to help us we’ve

made a million dooll new commit to build

the esol resilience Center will you

consider giving a special gift to help

us today pray about it that’s all I want

you to do I’m not going to tell you what

to give you ask God what he wants you to

give thank you and please continue to

pray for


Israel I’m standing here in the Zach’s

house the Zach Family House in k wki

suim the first community that we

introduce you to on October 7 this

entire family perished when we walked

after the atrocities of October 7 into

this house we saw the father lying here

behind me on the floor with a knife in

his hand and in the shelter behind me

the mother in bed hugging her son both

dead and both burned alive

but just like this Instinct of a family

to protect each other to save each other

this is what we feel with you Pastor

Jensen Franklin and your entire

congregation it was an instinct a family

instinct to come and stand with us and

to remind us that we are not alone you

are responding immediately because you

know us you know us already for many

years before and you committed to build

a resilience Center that will give us

therapy for our communities to heal

together in these atrocities of October

7 we know that we will rebuild

again it will be painful and hard but we

know that with you we can make it happen

step by step together as a family


I am a teacher and an educator at no Hab

I’m alive so everything is fine it’s not

that it wasn’t scary there were moments

it was very scary and the thing I was

most afraid of was that some missile

would hit the house and they would die

and I would stay alone because what will

an Israeli woman do alone in

conun the thing that bothered me the

most all the time is what happened to my

family when I left I knew the boys were

alive about raviv I knew nothing and the
