Scripture: Psalm 110:1-2
Psalm 110:1-2 says, “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.’ The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies!” Psalm 110:1 is very familiar because it is quoted by Peter to explain the Holy Spirit’s coming on the Day of Pentecost. It says, “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.’” The second verse says, “The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies!” Now the rod of strength is given to the church to overcome the enemies of harvest when we ask for the nations according to Psalm 2. On the day that Jesus was resurrected, He declared David’s covenant to the church so that the church could fulfill David’s prophesy in Psalm 2. Psalm 2 is about possessing nations in the last days because Jesus died for nations. But in order to do that, the judicial rod has to come out of Zion. Zion was the highest place in Jerusalem and it was the place the temple was built. It was a type-and-shadow temple. Where is Zion today? Where is the temple of the Lord today? It is in the hearts of every believer. So out of the heart of every believer, the Lord says He will bring a Rod of Iron so we can rule in the midst of our enemies. That is the Judicial Christ and that is the promise! The Lord will restore the Tabernacle of David that has fallen down. He will close up his breaches, Acts 15 says. Are we ready for this and do we understand it? We cannot afford to walk away from it because it is Who God is in the last days and it is how we will possess nations. We get the anointing of King David in order to execute the judgment of Christ so we can gather a harvest of nations. Anything less is forfeiting what the Lord bought and paid for. And only tradition can do that to us, and only if we choose to stay in a church where tradition is all that is taught. It is time for the church to wake up and go for victory!
