... the chosen children of God were battling in the wilderness against their enemies, as long as the hands of Moses were kept uplifted Israel prevailed, and when his hands were let down the enemy triumphed. Ex. 17:8-12. See also Psa. 28:2; 63:4; 88:9; Lam. 3:41. This signal act of triumph is conveyed into the spirit of the New Testament. Paul says, "I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting." 1 Tim. 2:8. This is a single text of the New Testament teaching this ordinance. In connection with ...
