Scripture: 2 Kings 6:18-23
When it comes to war, Elisha asked God to blind an entire army. Verse 18 says, “So when the Syrians came down to him, Elisha prayed to the LORD, and said, ‘Strike this people, I pray, with blindness.’ And He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.” Have we ever asked God to strike anybody with blindness? Have we ever asked God to strike anyone and put them in the grave? The Priestly side of Christ that we developed primarily makes this dimension unthinkable for many believers. The very fact that it is unthinkable guarantees the fact that we will lose every battle we face. Elisha understood the judicial Christ. He understood the judicial covenant, and like David, asked for it. Elisha led an entire army into bondage. The king’s response, in verse 21, was, “Shall I kill them?” And he asked it twice. Elisha said, “No, let’s have a BBQ. Feed them and send them home. We have already scared the hell out of them – they won’t come back anymore!” If there is anything that is needed right now it is the church flowing in an anointing that moves the Hand of God that scares the hell out of wayward politicians, both Democrats and Republicans. This is the side of Christ that we need to develop. This is the side of Christ that is missing in the church. Jesus has not changed. He is the same yesterday, today and forever and it is time we grew into the Kingly-judicial side of who our God is.
