Scripture: Acts 13:34
In Acts 13:34 we are told, “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.’ Isn’t it interesting that Jesus offers this covenant to the whole church who believe on His name. The covenant of Sure Mercy He says is bought and paid for. It is guaranteed by the Blood of the Lamb. The covenant that God made with David is now guaranteed to every believer by the Blood of Christ. Jesus died so that we could have David’s covenant. That means that Jesus died so that the David who is in us by the Spirit can come out. What would you look like if you let King David who is in you come out? How would you sound? What would say? What would you like if you were to let the King David who is in you have full, mature expression? The fact that the church of our generation has never allowed the King who has been bought and paid for by the Blood of the Lamb to be expressed is a dishonoring of what Christ died for. The church of today is living so far below the authority of what has been bought and paid for that it brings grief to the Master. When you taste Kingly authority, when you touch it, when you see what Christ died for and when you see where the church is, you can only weep in unbelievable grief. Will we ever allow the David who is in us to be fully expressed? Paul saw a glorious church without spot or wrinkle or blemish. Paul saw the church which is like David. Are we willing to say yes to that? Are we willing to embrace that? Are we willing to say to God, Here I am Lord. Develop the David that is within me! Will we say, yes and let the David who is within us by the Blood of the Lamb be developed and come out of us in strength in the last days? It is time to honor the Living Christ with being all He bought and paid for!
