It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, 1* came against Jehoshaphat to battle. [2] Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh 2* a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be Hazazon-tamar, which is En-gedi. [3] And Jehoshaphat  3* feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. [4] And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the Lord: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord.
 [5] And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord, before the new court, [6] And said, O Lord God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee? [7] Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever? [8] And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying, [9] If, when
evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help. [10] And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not; [11] Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit. [12] O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee. [13] And all Judah stood before the Lord, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.
 Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came
the Spirit of the Lord in the midst of the congregation; [15] And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king

Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but G-d's! [16] To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. [17] Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you! 18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the Lord, worshipping the Lord. [19] And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with a loud voice on high.
   [20] And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear Me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe His
prophets, so shall ye prosper. [21] And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever.
   [22] And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the
children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. [23] For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another. [24] And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped. [25] And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much!

(Exodus 14:13)
(Deuteronomy 1:29)

Be not afraid!

It will be the battle of the L-rd Himself!

(V. 22, 23): (Judges 7:22) When [Gideon's men] blew the 300 trumpets (
shofarit), the Lord set every [Midianite's] sword against his comrade and against all the army, and the army fled as far as Beth-shittah toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel-meholah by Tabbath!

(V. 3):Yeshua's promise to the believers of today!

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. (Mark 11:23; KJV) Here, faith without doubting is the condition to meet if one wants the fulfillment of the benefits! The prediction or promise is that everyone who meets the condition will be answered, even to the moving of mountains (Matthew 17:20; Matthew 21:21-22).

Everyone without exception is promised everything he asks in prayer, provided he qualifies for an answer!
Have unlimited faith without qualifying and limiting G-d's will or what you want! (or your urgent need!)
Refuse to doubt in your heart! (Picture: Noah had great faith to build the Ark! Y)
Never say "if it be Thy will" concerning anything you ask that is definitely promised of God in His word!

PLEASE, do NEVER pray to the Lord: "O L-rd the mountain is so huge! Help me to remove it!" That's a weak statement of faith! PRAY like this: "O ye mountain! My G-d, who I serve is far bigger than you! I move you in the Mighty Name of Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ)!...Amen!"
Mountains here are referring to your circumstances or difficulties in life!

There is a place!

The key is that we will worship Him and we sing and praise to the L-rd of Host together with the Millions of angelic voices! So He will fight our battle!

There is so much more, which we do not know yet. By our "walk" on earth, G-d will reveal us more and more how to worship Him, with the tremendous effects of real devoted worship before His throne, by His Holy Spirit!
There is a place prepared for you, a place for the chosen of G-d! You can enter it right NOW! You can dwell in the GLORY of the Lord Most High! It is prepared for you, a long time ago! It belongs to you and it is the will of God to show you how to dwell there! It is the room in the Heavenly places, which will break your heavy yoke! (Isaiah 10:27)
There is a place of total surrender, humbling yourself to G-d and exalting of G-d!
There is a place, for a higher call, that will lead you to an even higher way!
There is a place of receiving more blessings, Divine anointing & Glory!
There is a place where depression will be transformed into an expression of great joy!
Come on into this place, Courtyard of His Temple, His sanctuary,
where the ground under your feet is Holy!
There is a place that Angelic beings have just come  from the Shekinah-Presence of Almighty God, and are singing beautiful songs before the Throne of G-d!
It is the place where you communicate with G-d, receive Divine revelation, Divine instruction, Words of prophecy, encouragement, comfort and counsel from the Heavenly Father!
It is the place that you should listen in silence to the gentle voice of the Holy Spirit, that will tell you what is yet to come!

A Shofar-blow - A powerful catalyst to bring the glory of G-d!  "In unison when the Shofarers and the singers were to make themselves heard with one voice to praise and to glorify the Lord, and  when they lifted up their voice accompanied by Shofars and  cymbals  and instruments of music, and when they praised the L-rd saying, 'He indeed is good for His loving-kindness is everlasting,' then the house of the L-rd, was filled with a cloud..."

Praise ye the Lord. Praise G-d in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet (Shofar!): praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
