RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP LEADER’S MANUAL 14 FEBRUARY 2021
TOPIC: KINGS ARE NOT SAVED BY THEIR LARGE SEIZES OF THEIR ARMIES
OPENING PRAYER: Father, please manifest Your power in my life all the time.
PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should ask the members about the story of Simon the sorcerer.
MEMORY VERSE: “There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.” Psalm 33:16
BIBLE TEXT: 1 Kings 20:1-21
LESSON INTRODUCTION: Benhadad, the king of Syria gathered thirty-two kings and their chariots to fight the king of Israel according to our today’s text, because he saw Israel to be small in size likewise her men of war. Little did he know that by going to mock Israel he was in turn mocking their God. When the God of Israel stood up and fought against him, he came and pleaded for leniency.
Romans 8:31 has this to say: “…if God be for us, who can be against us?” Nothing can be against you, if your trust is in God. It does not matter your size, provided that God is on your side, you are on the path of victory.
Please note this: Whether you are a secular king with a kingdom that you oversee or you are a King and Priest in God’s kingdom according to Revelation 1:6 and 5:10, note that one with God is majority.

TEXT REVIEW: 1 Kings 20:1-21
i. By strength shall no man prevail.
ii. Strength will fail at battle but God never fails.
THOSE THAT WERE DELIVERED IN WAR BY GOD IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR SIZES
1: GIDEON: He discomfited the Midianites with only three hundred men by God’s instruction. – Judges 7:2; 5-7
2: KING JEHOSHAPHAT: He appointed a praise team at the war front and by the time they finished singing, there was no war to fight. – 2 Chronicles 20:20-24
3: ABRAHAM: He went and rescued his nephew (Lot) with his 318 (three hundred and eighteen) trained men. – Genesis 14:5-17
On the contrary, when God departed from the camp of the Israelites because of Achan’s sin (Joshua 7:1-11); Despite the large size of the forces of Israel, they were utterly defeated by the small army of Ai.
ACTIVITY: What will happen to the person that God is not his ally?
SUMMARY: Allow God to be your ally always in any battle of life.
CONCLUSION: It does not matter the small size of your army, you will surely defeat your adversary if you have God as your ally. However, God will only come to your aid if sin is not found in you or in your camp.
1. Thank the Lord for making you King and Priest unto Himself. – Revelation 1:6
2. Ask for God’s mercy where you have erred against Him. – Hebrews 4:16
