Ba'al-Perazim ‘The Lord / Breaking Forth’
2Sa 5:18-20 The Philistines also came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
And David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand?
And the LORD said unto David, “Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.”
And David came to Ba’al-Perazim, and David smote them there, and said, The LORD hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place Ba-al Perazim.
So here are the representations of these places and names:
Valley of Rephaim means: Valley of the Giants
LORD: Notice that LORD is in all caps, this is intentional as David is hearing directly from Father God, literally means: ‘THE LORD’
In the transliteration bible, the actual name used here is YAHUAH. Which means; “I AM HE WHO BREATHES LIFE!”
“Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.”
Keywords: Into thine hand
David had to do his part in this, I’ve seen this several times over the years, a Christian receives a word and then just sits back waiting for God to do it and guess what? It just doesn’t happen? The word falls to the ground, sometimes you must get your hand into it.
Ba-al Perazim: The Lord/ Breaking Forth
David entered into Baalperazim & then named it Baalperazim after the victory, how can this be? Because in order to gain the victory you must first see the victory. David didn’t go into battle wishing he could gain a victory he came in knowing he had a victory. Don’t let your circumstances name themselves! We all face giants at one point or another in our lives, circumstances that are beyond our control, obstacles that are just too big to overcome. I once asked the Lord what the Leviathan was in the book of Job, and He answered me, He said something like this: “Any obstacle in life that is too big for you to conquer without My help.”
After David won he named the place: Baalperazim, 'The Lord/ Breaking Forth' Now David knows without a shadow of doubt that God is on his side and he going forth for the win. He has weakened his enemies before him and the battles won’t be so hard in the future. David knows his authority. Once I was praying for a man that was demonically possessed, there were several of us praying for this man & he wasn’t getting set free, I asked the Lord what was wrong? I had a vision of three demons dressed in business suites watching me, they were sitting at a table and one leaned over to the other and said: “He doesn’t know his authority!” They observe, they know whether or not you believe, they watch your body language they listen to your prayers. But get excited! Once you know your authority, they know it too!
