Battleground Earth 13: The Issue of Legitimacy - David Mitts
Legitimacy has been a challenge for many people. Feelings of the shame that comes from illegitimacy can affect the way we see ourselves and our claim on the victories in our lives. What is legitimacy really all about? With respect to our birth, legitimacy is determined by the marriage covenant of the parents. When a child is conceived in a marriage covenant, as a boundary generated by the pledges of 2 individuals and through them two lineages, the child is celebrated as the legitimate fruit of that covenant.
The Ammonites are the mob. They are the voice of the masses. They seek to destroy godly authority and the uniqueness of each person and the passionate love of God for each and every one. Jephthah is the response of God. It is the door that He opens for us.
