The Ark Of God VS Dagon, The god Of The Philistines

Dagon the lie of Satan vs the Ark which contained the Word of God, God’s Word WON!

1 Samuel 5:1-5

After the Philistines had captured the ark of God, they took it from Ebenezer to Ashdod. 2 Then they carried the ark into Dagon’s temple and set it beside Dagon. 3 When the people of Ashdod rose early the next day, there was Dagon, fallen on his face on the ground before the ark of the Lord! They took Dagon and put him back in his place. 4 But the following morning when they rose, there was Dagon, fallen on his face on the ground before the ark of the Lord! His head and hands had been broken off and were lying on the threshold; only his body remained. 5 That is why to this day neither the priests of Dagon nor any others who enter Dagon’s temple at Ashdod step on the threshold.


The Ark of the covenant was placed in the temple of Dagon by the Philistines. The Ark of God contained the Ten Commandments which are the Word of God, so you had facing each other the Word of God, the Truth, and Dagon an idol, the lie from Satan. God’s Word defeated the lie (Dagon) by putting its face to the ground. Once again Dagon was stood up to face God’s Word (the Ark) again.

Here you see, as an illustration, the Light vs. darkness or the Truth vs. the lie. The second time God’s Word completely destroyed the lie by chopping it up into pieces. When we are reading Holy Scripture and live according to it, we will have the Full Armor of God on (Ephesians 6:10-18) and will destroy any lie that Satan hurls at us.

We see the strength of God’s Word in the Book of Matthew 7:24-25 which says, 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”

Satan can never defeat the Word of God, that’s why it is vital that we live by it so that we may be prepared on the day of battle.

A Prayer For All On WordPress, Happy New Year!


I would like to say a prayer not only to those who are kind enough to read my posts but to those who haven’t.

Father in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, first of all, Lord I ask you for my brothers and sisters in Christ. May You Lord bless them this New Year with spiritual strength to combat the demonic forces which they will try to tempt them to sin against You. I pray Lord God for their protection and their well being for 2017. Use them mightily for Your kingdom, to bring people to Jesus for eternal life by putting their faith in Him.

Now O Lord I ask You for those in WordPress that don’t have a personal relationship with You yet. I ask You O Lord that You may use one of the believer’s posts in WordPress to bring them to a saving faith in Jesus. I ask You all this in Jesus’ name Amen.

This is a new year of a new walk with the Lord in righteousness, may we walk according to His righteous Word.

If I have ever offended a brother and sister in Christ without being aware of it, you have my sincere apology and may the Lord unite all the Christians as one so that we may stand against false doctrines of Satan and his lies. We must stand on the Truth and the Truth alone, God bless you all.
