The Shield and Horn of Salvation



2 Samuel 22:3

“The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, (…)”

When I was meditating upon this message, I realized how important it is to safeguard our salvation and keep it strong.

 Many were made strong by God and received His spirit, unfortunately, they didn’t shield it!..

We know that the devil is after our crown, the crown of Salvation!…That’s all it matters to the devil. That’s how he makes people to loose their Salvation, by working to destroy the shield and remove the horn of Salvation.

How he does it?

The devil works to make the person to be paying attention to feelings, emotions. That’s how he works.!…He wants to instill malice, pride, grudge, rebellion and doubts.

That’s what he does to remove the shield of salvation.

What about the horn of salvation? What does it represent? We know very well that the horn was used for two things:


  1. By the prophets (Usually it was filled with oil)

The devil wants to impede our lives “Horn” to be filled with the oil of the Holy Spirit. Many become complacent and don’t seek to fill themselves with the things of God. The devil wants our “Horn” to be empty, so he could have a way in.

  1. By the watchtower (In order to warn of danger of an eminent attack)

The evil one wants to impede the person to hear the truth. God’s word is the truth, so he works with ways to hinder the person to come to church and make them so busy that one can’t hear God’s “Voice” anymore.

Let’s shield our Salvation, by maintaining our good eyes, humbleness, meekness, to remain always living by faith, not forgetting to fill our “Horn” with oil and be attentive to the voice of the Holy Spirit, warning us from the danger of eminent attacks of the devil!…

    Thank you Pr Elijah for sharing this blog meditation. That is how the devil truly works. And specially in this 21 Days Fast i have been asking God not just to change my heart because that’s where the devil works. I want Him to change my mind set daily. Because when i use my brain to think then i am using the intelligent faith God gave me. I am using reason to think, to understand better and this is what the devil does not want us to do,to think. When i think with eeason it helps me to protect my faith, to safeguard my salavation from the devil.

    That’s true, and that is the reason why there are so many people that call themselves Cristians and living a live of misery, full of depressions and many other things that we know. How come this world will know God if those who are called by their name don’t glorifie Him by their testimonies of caracther and their lives himself? Let us seek this oil and be vigilant because God will lead us to victory, here and the most important one. The heaven. Thanks for the post.

    This means that we have to be in spirit at all time, not allowing my feelings, my emotions to take over and to remain in faith. Thanks you do much for sharing pastor.
