In my early years as a new Christian, I heard a few silly sermons that belittled King Barak who would not go to war without the prophetess Deborah at his side. (Judges 4:1-8)
What was the real reason King Barak wanted Deborah by his side in battle? The answer is in her name.
Deborah means “bee”, as in beeline, the shortest route between two points. Deborah was, in part, the supernatural equivalent of a GPS. She knew what to do, how to do it, where to do it, and when to do it. [Reference: Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, Hebrew 1682, 1683]
By nature, women are generally more sensitive to the Holy Spirit than are men. This was true of Pilate’s wife (Matthew 27:19) and this is true of my own wife whose gentle warnings I have learned to heed.
Rep. Elise Stefanik (Republican, NY CD-2) has risen to be a powerful voice for reason and justice on the Intelligence Committee. Elise has the characteristics of a Deborah.
King-of-the-Kangaroo-Court Adam Schiff would do well to respect her.
I, for one, am thankful Elise is on the committee for such a time as this.
