Submission – Man as Chaplain

When Joshua was by Jericho, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing before him with his drawn sword in his hand. And Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us, or for our adversaries?” And he said, “No; but I am the commander of the army of the Lord. Now I have come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped and said to him, “What does my lord say to his servant?” And the commander of the Lord’s army said to Joshua, “Take off your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so. - Joshua 5:13-15 ESV

In his
Second Inaugural Address in 1865, President Abraham Lincoln reflected on why the bloody Civil War continued between the Union and the Confederacy even though “Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other.” He concluded, “The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes.” On another occasion, when a clergyman said he hoped that “the Lord is on our [the Union’s] side,” Lincoln replied: “[T]he Lord is always on the side of the right. But it is my constant anxiety and prayer that I and this nation should be on the Lord’s side.”

When he spoke these words, Lincoln may have been thinking about Joshua’s encounter with the commander of the Lord’s armies. I can almost picture how the scene played out. Joshua is puzzling over the problem of how to take the great walled city of Jericho. So, he goes out on recon, picking his way down a path, but then he suddenly senses that he is not alone. He stops and sees this warrior with a drawn sword. So, Joshua’s breathing increases, adrenaline rushes, and pulse pounds. Instinctively, his hand grabs the hilt of his sword at his side, and he’s ready for a fight. But he senses that this is no ordinary warrior, so he pauses to ask in verse 13, “Are you a friend or a foe? Are you for us or against us? Are you on our side or on their side?” And the strange answer he gets in verse 14 is essentially “Neither.” The bottom line is that this heavenly warrior is saying, “I’m not on your side or their side. I’ve not come to take sides. I’ve come to take over!”
