Be strong and of good courage...

Joshua 1:9 and 2:11

Chazak v'amats!

Believers in The Way do not need to commit violence and scream that our God is greater. YHVH does not ask that of us. Instead, he asks us to be strong, Chazak, which means we are to cling to him, to stand firm on His Word.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the Wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Ephesians 6:10-13 nkj
To be strong Chazak, is to cling to YHVH through Y'shua. He is our strength, not our physical body. To have courage, 'amats is to stand our ground when the ground we stand on is the Word of God. Stand firm! That is the meaning of Amen. But be ye steadfast, that is the war cry of the believer,
