Scripture: Genesis 15:8,13-16
Abram says to God, “Lord God, how shall I know that I will inherit it?” God answered through Blood Covenant and as He initiates the steps to consummate Blood Covenant in verse 13 He says, “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete” God said, ‘Abram, I am giving you the land. You can only mark it off and claim it by faith. But your seed will come back and they will dispossess the Amorites after 400 years of that culture filling the land with iniquity. When the land is finally filled with iniquity, then the inhabitants will lose their original claim to the land through creation and placement. At that point, that land will be yours and I will bring your descendants into it. Know it because I promised it by blood!’ Blood Covenant was at that point established with Abraham, guaranteeing Canaan to the Israelites. If we consider where America, Israel and the church are today, Scripture makes clear if we help and bless Israel, God will bless us. To frustrate Israel, to attempt to discourage Israel or to aid the enemy may bring the full measure of God’s judgment. For a Bible-believing land, wisdom demands the support of Israel. But without commitment to the Word, we see our nation abandoning Israel and funding the work of their enemies. And that is something we will all pay the price for. Spirit-led covenantal prayer toward politicians, political parties, even presidents, is essential if we hope to see our nation blessed. Blood Covenant is, for such a time as this, where our prayers can move God’s Hand to change the rule of evil men and gain righteousness! Praying covenant justice on the head of a demonized politician intent on destroying another formerly Godly nation requires divine intervention!
