Deu. 20:17 “But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.”
When Israel failed to destroy the Hittites, they live among them and they dwell everywhere. The name “Hittite” is derived from the name “Heth” that means “sons of terror”. It is this terror or fear that seeks to dominate the Israelites. They have prevented them to worship God.
How many Christian lives are still held captive and controlled by the Hittite enemy today? Why is there so much silence amongst God’s beloved people? Is it not because we allowed the Hittites to dwell right in our very midst. You are afraid to speak the word of our Lord Jesus, afraid to lift up your voice in thanksgiving. You are afraid to take your stand for Christ and to do that which the word of God declares should be done. Oh, the Hittite empire is indeed a wide one among us – it reaches everywhere and their dwelling amongst us is a witness how we have failed to cast them out. Yet thank God, their very presence amongst us is a call from Him to rise now and put them from us; to be done with fear, to be done with all this terror, this holding back, and to be strong in the Lord and the power of His might!
