SUNDAY, JULY 18
Scripture: Romans 12:14, Galatians 1:8,9
In Romans 12 the Apostle Paul preaches “Bless and curse not” but when he encounters counterfeit preachers and sees the devastation in Galatians, he goes Kingly and states, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” When Paul exhorts “Bless and curse not” he is preaching a Priestly message that stands within a covenant community. When he encounters false teachers, he has no hesitation in using Kingly authority in demanding covenant judgment on their heads. The Psalms are loaded with Kingly prayers covering every situation we face today and we should not hesitate to pray them!
