SUNDAY, MAY 18
Scripture: Luke 22:37,38
Luke 22:37-38 says, “’For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: “And He was numbered with the transgressors.” For the things concerning Me have an end.’ So they said, ‘Lord, look, here are two swords.’ And He said to them, ‘It is enough.’” When the disciples said, “Look, Lord, here we have two swords.”, they were speaking of what represents the Priestly and the Kingly anointing. Jesus said, “It is enough.” We understand that unless we have fully established ourselves with both the Priestly and the Kingly anointing, we do not have enough. If we do not say yes to the Priestly and the Kingly anointing we will simply not have enough to face the level of what the enemy throws at us. And Ezekiel said it best. He made it very clear that we will encounter people that are still alive, that should not be. And the only deliverance we are going to get is if we can bring the Hand of the Lord to bear on them so that they are removed from the earth. We are going to run into people who should not die – friends, church people, believers who are making a difference. Apply this nationally. How many Americans will die because our military has been devastated and because of President Obama’s unilateral disarmament? What Ronald Reagan won in his victory over the Soviet Union is now being given back by the gutting of the military by America’s ruling political party. If we do not pray judgment now, many will die that should live! It is that simple. When we have two swords, then it is enough. One sword is not enough. Do we feel like we can share Jesus the Savior anywhere we go? But can we demonstrate the King? Can we move the Hand of God? Does the breath of our lips slay the wicked? If it does not, we have not yet ‘bought’ our sword. We cannot let this year end until we have ‘bought’ our sword. It does not take long to make a determination in our hearts to move toward the maturity required to possess the anointing! Grow in it and walk in it!
