I saw three things that seemed to describe an effective group, body, division of an army:
- They came together – they worked as a team. They each know how they fit into the whole. They each have a crucial role to play. They are not acting apart or against the objectives of the group.
- They have a multitude of weapons which they can wield expertly – they are not just in possession of these weapons, they are equipped. That word is repeated often in this passage. These are tried soldiers, not those who are not sure how to use what they have. Rather, they are equipped, trained to be effective with their weapon. They have a multitude of ways in which they can do so.
- They have an undivided heart – they are focused, not distracted, they know their assignment and are committed to seeing it through.
The gates of hell would tremble.
