SATURDAY, JANUARY 25
Scripture: Jeremiah 15:2-4
Verses 2-4 state, “And it shall be, if they say to you, ‘Where should we go?’ then you shall tell them, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Such as are for death, to death; And such as are for the sword, to the sword; And such as are for the famine, to the famine; And such as are for the captivity, to the captivity. And I will appoint over them four forms of destruction,” says the Lord: “the sword to slay, the dogs to drag, the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the earth to devour and destroy. I will hand them over to trouble, to all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah, king of Judah, for what he did in Jerusalem.”’ The nation of Israel, under Manasseh, got itself into a place of fullness of iniquity where judgment was inevitable. It is possible for people to see fullness of iniquity in their nation and believe that it is too late for intercession to change things. If a nation fills the cup of iniquity, it is inevitable that the Judicial Hand of God will fall. That possibility is an intense reality and could very well happen to America, with the way things are going. God said there are four judicial results of filling the cup of iniquity. Filling the cup can result in death, famine, captivity and multiple forms of adversity. It is possible to find ourselves moving rapidly to a full cup of iniquity. The real question is, what are we going to do, if we find ourselves in such a position? The Lord said, “Even if Moses and Samuel stood before Me, My mind would not be favorable toward this people.” Thank God we stand in a better place than Moses and Samuel! Believers with salt pray termination on the perpetrators and mercy for the nation! Save the nation by moving God’s Judicial Hand against those defiling it!
