Battles are never fought without weapons. Only the courageous and a man with faith can be able to withstand and win a battle without any weapon.

Israel without a weapon

Humanly speaking, its impossible for a country's army to go engage another country's army in war without weapons. Battles are fought with weapons and not with empty hand.
Israel won a battle without a weapon.

The Book of 1samuel 13:16 explained that saul and his son including the men with them staying at Gibeah of Benjamin. They were about to face the philistines in a battle but had no weapon. It was recorded in the bible that in the whole land of Israel there was no blacksmith, so therefore not a soldier with saul, and Jonathan had a sword or spear.

A courageous heart is not scared of an enemy. Jonathan was not scared of the situation because he knew who he was in God and he called on his armour bearer without the notice of his father saul and said to him that they should go to attack the philistines. (1samuel 14:6) "Jonathan said to his armour bearer, "come let's go over to the outpost of those uncircumcised fellows. Perhaps the Lord will act on our behalf. Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few."

When you are not equipped for a particular mission always learn to put all trust in God. Jonathan knew they were handicapped for the battle but he put his trust in God. Believing in all totality that God will see them through.

He was also encouraged to go for the battle by his armour bearer who asked him to do as he wishes.
You need an encourager to overcome that battle and not a discourager.

When Jonathan and his armoured bearer moved in, they slayed over 20 men.
God finally intervened by causing panic and confusion in the camp of the philistines and when saul looked he discovered that the philistines were dispersing.( 1samuel 14:20), "Then saul and all his men went to battle. They found the philistines in total confusion, striking each other with there swords."
The philistines started fighting themselves and israelites did not do anything. God came to there rescue. (1samuel 14:23)
"So the Lord rescued Israel that day".
God fights for his people and never allows them to be disgraced. Trust in God today and keep according to his commands. God will surely give you a new life and the spirit of courageousness.

Thought provoking, Princej.

For us live in peace, we should start disarmament in right earnest and that itself will give the impetus and encouragement for peace. Now arms race enriches the unworthy, undeserving - siva

Love is the answer to peace but treaties are needed to keep them as long as it's not the treaty of Versailles with the League of Nations in governance destroying Germany with reparation charges until hitler came in and got it cleared declaring the Second World War indirectly and getting blamed for the likes of eichmann and Mussolini who caused the hassle until the Japanese bombed the pearl harbour awaking the sleeping giant who sent them to experience the first nuclear war that sees the effect till date.
Any way, the biggest cause of wars is petroleum and oil and see it, when there is a gulf war the price is high. So regular people should walk to prevent all transport costs and keep wars on low and of course reduce population as it leads to territorial fights like dogs with a leg up to mark territory then snarl and bark at all infiltrators including their own family.

So long love is not LoverMe or Siva will do the territorial bark for the leg up place again. They travel in packs for the howl.
