DAVID AND GOLIATH
THE SPIRIT OF FAITH AND THE SPIRIT OF FEAR
David and Goliath is a story of the Spirit of faith (David), and the spirit of fear (Goliath). David is a type of Jesus Christ, and us. Goliath is a type of the 666 man: six cubits in height, six pieces of armor, and six hundred shekels of iron. The six pieces of Goliath's armor are a carnal counterfeit of the six pieces of the armor of God found in Ephesians, chapter six. The armor of Goliath, which is brass, has the meaning of "filthiness" in Hebrew, connoting false doctrine, which leads to sin. Thus God has drawn for us the contrast between the armor of filthiness (brass), and the armor of righteousness.
