Scripture: 2 Corinthians 10:1,2
2 Corinthians 10:1,2 states, “Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ—who in presence am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you.” Here again, we see Paul with the meekness of the bridle that also releases the judicial hand of Christ. Is there any doubt that Paul knew how to bring the Sword of the Lord? And even in verses 3-6, he made it clear that he was a warrior and he knew how to bring the judicial Christ into manifestation. He knew the God who was ready to punish all disobedience, when personal obedience was fulfilled. The place of the judicial Christ is the place where our obedience is full. This is not something we generate out of our own flesh. It is something we say yes to because the King wants a harvest and He is looking to us to execute His will against those who are hindering that harvest. Paul uses the exact phrase, “Against some…” Most of the church has never moved against anyone. Paul did, all the prophets did, God does. But most do not represent Him in that arena at all. It is time the church began to act like the army God made us. If we do not move against the wicked by prayer, we will forfeit significant parts of the harvest. Paul would have struck our politicians and judges with a rod of iron. We should when we learn how!
