The ancient war cry of the nation of Israel: “Be strong and courageous, for you must bring the people of Israel into the land I swore to give them. I will be with you.” Deuteronomy 31:23
These words are repeatedly used to strengthen, encourage and drive the Israelites forward to the blessing that Yahweh had in store for them. Yet, just like us, they were unsure, frightened and cowardly. RAK CHAZAK! were the words of Yahweh that reverberated to the very core of the heart that was, and is, timid; it drives you into the position and the promise that has been designed for you because of who you are. It is a place of honor, power and glory.
But sometimes we stand in front of the raging, overflowing Jordan River and are paralyzed into inactivity. RAK CHAZAK! is the war cry of the God of the universe that gets us moving to take what is ours and to bring glory to His name, the very reason we exist.
We embrace the spirit of the Rak Chazak war cry at The Message! We believe that we are to be unabashedly brash, energetic and unthrottled, gathering to glorify Abba. We are the sons and daughters of the living Lord – it is the hour for us to assume our legal identities and Rak Chazak is our war cry and declaration of that shift.
This is something you want to experience!
