Scripture: Exodus 4:22,23,
Exodus 4:22,23 says, “Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Israel is My son, My firstborn. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me. But if you refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn.’” We serve a God who dispenses double-death. He did it in Egypt and He brought His people out as a testimony. He also found an individual to declare it and proclaim it. He gave the Egyptians the opportunity to turn, but they did not. And then, the Destroyer came. Judgment fell. The God who dispenses double-death manifested. Doesn’t it seem wise to get to know this Jesus because it is entirely possible we may have to represent Him in parallel circumstances? As a former military officer leading a crew in war, to me the incident in Bengazi represented treason of our Commander in Chief. He ordered troops to “stand down” when those troops could have saved an American ambassador and several in his protective detail. To me, there could be no treason in the White House if there were not first passivity in the pulpit! When men and women of God stop watering down truth and begin speaking about the evil of political parties and politicians trumpeting evil, then and only then will we see the church reemerge as God’s representatives in the earth!
