Scripture: Revelation 19:15, Revelation 1:16
There is a Sword to be released on those who are hindering the harvest. This is obvious from Revelation 19, but it appears numerous places in Scripture. In Revelation 1:16 we are told, “He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.” There is a sharp two-edged Sword that comes out of the mouth of Christ. Does it ever come out of the mouth of His servants? In 1 Chronicles 21:1,7-12, we see David’s failure when he numbered Israel. The option he is given is three years of famine, three months to be defeated by his foes, or three days with the Sword of the Lord, loose in the land. Revelation 19 refers to this Sword! David chose the three days of the Sword of the Lord in the land because he believed God was merciful and it was possible to stay His hand. Well, if it is possible to stay the hand of the Sword of the Lord, it is also possible to release it. Perhaps we need to be staying it right now over our individual nations and loosing it over certain people who are filling the land with iniquity. Perhaps we need to be focusing it on the perpetrators and taking it off of the innocent sheep. Do we really believe that we can stop or release the Sword of the Lord? David did. What is wrong with us?
