Scripture: I Chronicles 21:27-10
How did God redeem this mess? David bought the threshing floor and which later became the Temple Mount. This was where the Temple of Solomon was to be built. Can we stop the Sword of the Lord when it is coming in judgment on our nation? Through the covenant of Sure Mercy we can. God has a Sword and that Sword of the Lord can be activated by Christian prayer or it can be stopped by Christian prayer. If we get established in the Word and understand who we are and what we have by covenant, then this becomes second nature. When we face an enemy we loose the Sword of the Lord on that enemy. God redeemed David’s failure because he just bought the property that the Temple of Solomon would one day occupy. Prayer made in that place would either start the Sword of the Lord or stop it. Now that is a picture of a New Testament believer, and that Temple is now in us! What are we doing in our temple? As we allow a president filled with darkness to dismantle the nation in which we live, that becomes a judgment on us! Our refusal to get serious with God facilitates demonic leaders allowing them to continue their reign of destruction. Axios prayer for those that pay the price to pray it brings the fruit of a politician’s actions on his own head. Lord, reward them according to their works! That prayer shortens the life of those who steadfastly promote darkness!
