SUNDAY, MARCH 2
Scripture: Acts 2:32-36
Acts 2:32-36 says, “And we declare to you glad tidings—that promise which was made to the fathers. God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus. As it is also written in the second Psalm: ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.’ And that He raised Him from the dead, no more to return to corruption, He has spoken thus: ‘I will give you the sure mercies of David.’ Therefore He also says in another Psalm: ‘You will not allow Your Holy One to see corruption.’ For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption;…” It is obvious that Peter was using Psalm 110 to describe the power of the Holy Spirit that had just been given to every believer. Verse 36 makes it clear that Jesus Who had just been crucified, had now become both Koo-ree-os and Kris-tos. Koo-ree-os means Judge of all the earth and Kris-tos means Savior of all the earth. The Holy Spirit will manifest through every believer who is willing both the Judge of all the earth and the Savior of all the earth. So if we find ourselves in a place where demonized leaders are threatening the church, how should we pray? Psalm 110 becomes the platform, the foundation, and the theological understanding for what we are praying, and for what we are asking Him to do in that season. Our job is to cooperate with Him and learn how to flow with the Holy Spirit in prayer so that the promises of Psalm 110 become a reality! Anything less loses our harvest field. I believe the church will rise up in the last days and fully possess its harvest field of cities and nations from demonized leaders. World War II was all about the removal of a demonized leader. There were two fronts in World War II – there was the actual war and then there was the prayer battle behind the scenes. Anyone who has ever read Reese Howells Intercessor, Has read about the prayer battle that preceded the physical battle. When the prayer battle is won then the victory is won. Psalm 110 is our foundation for that victory.
