Portfolio of David's Mighty Men and Famous Soldiers


It always makes me exited when I read how God blessed David. God not only made David king but He has given him some of the best warriors and soldiers. They had the same anointing which rested on David. They too had the ability to win single handed victories, they too used to kill Giants, they too killed lions. I felt it was all because of the mantle they were under. Since God appointed David as a king He was faithful to him and gave him army which was well equipped with brave men. Initially David was leader for men who were in debt or who had all sorts of problems, but later he was able to build one of the strongest armies of that time. All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their leader. About four hundred men were with him. - 1 Samuel 22:2 So I feel blessing starts from where we fell it wont. God can make feeble strong, he can make a single man a mighty nation and that was literally fulfilled in David's life. Just read about the mighty men who were with David in the below post.


The Three : Among David's mightiest warriors their were three people who became were very famous among all of David's men and were called 'The Three'. Among them were Jashobeam, the son of a Hachmonite, Eleazar son of Dodai the Ahohite, Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite.

Jashobeam : This man was the leader for the three. He fought with with his spear against three hundred men and killed them all in one battle.

Eleazar : He was one among the three and also a brave warrior. He fought on David's side against the philistines at the battle of Pas Dammim. He was in a barley field when the Israelites started to run away, so he and his men made a stand in the middle of the field and fought the Philistines and Lord gave him a great victory.

Shammah : The philistines had gathered at Lehi, where there was a field of peas. The Israelites fled from the Philistines, but Shammah stood his ground and killed the Philistines. The Lord won a great victory that day.


Brave act of The Three : During harvest time, three of the thirty chief men came down to David at the cave of Adullam, while a band of Philistines was encamped in the Valley of Rephaim. At that time David was in the stronghold, and the Philistine garrison was at Bethlehem. David longed for water and said, "Oh, that someone would get me a drink of water from the well near the gate of Bethlehem!" So the three mighty men broke through the Philistine lines, drew water from the well near the gate of Bethlehem and carried it back to David. But he refused to drink it; instead, he poured it out before the LORD."Far be it from me, O LORD, to do this!" he said. "Is it not the blood of men who went at the risk of their lives?" And David would not drink it. Such were the exploits of the three mighty men.

The Famous Thirty : Next to the three were famous thirty soldiers and they were headed by Abishai who was brother of Joab and leaders used to change from time to time.

Abishai : He fought with his spear against three hundred men and killed them, and became famous  among the thirty and became their leader, but he was not as famous as the three.
-Abishai son of Zeruiah struck down eighteen thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt. (-1 Chronicles 18:13)
-Then Ishbi-benob, who was among the descendants of the giant, the weight of whose spear was three hundred shekels of bronze in weight, was girded with a new sword, and he intended to kill David.But Abishai the son of Zeruiah helped him, and struck the Philistine and killed him. Then the men of David swore to him, saying, "You shall not go out again with us to battle, so that you do not extinguish the lamp of Israel." (- 2 Samuel 21:16-17)

Benaiah: He was son of Jehoiada from Kabzeel and was a famous soldier; he did many brave deeds, including killing two great Moabite warriors. He once went down into a pit on a snowy day and killed a lion. He also killed a Egyptian, a huge man over two meters tall, who was armed with a gigantic spear. Benaiah attacked him with a club, snatched the spear from the Egyptian's hand, and killed him with it. He was outstanding among the thirty but not as famous as the three. He was appointed chief of Solomon's army

(Ref: 2 Samuel 23: 8-39, 1 Chronicles 11:10-47)
So what are we to be worried of if at all Lord is with us who can be against us what can a man think or plot against us. Are you planning for a business you don't have any intellectual men don't worry kingdom doesn't need to have them. If at all you are under the mantle of JESUS CHRIST if at all his anointing rests upon you will will be blessed even with unqualified men. Its only the mantle which can create a difference even dry valleys will run full of water. So choose your mantle its Jesus Christ alone.

I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. - John 15:5


"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit." - Jeremiah 17:7-8
