TUESDAY, JULY 27
Scripture: 1 Kings 17:1-7, Mark 11:11-14
There is no difference between what Elijah did to the economy and what Jesus did to the fig tree. Elijah prayed the economy into the grave. Jesus spoke to the fig tree, cursed it and it dried up. We cannot say that Jesus did not give us an example of how effectual, fervent prayer works. He did. And He gave us an example in a context where He guaranteed that we could do the same thing. It is obvious that Jesus is speaking about the Kingly anointing. He is guaranteeing it to the church. But our tradition is so Priestly that we have not developed faith from the promises that are right in front of us in the exhortations to move in this dimension. It is time to grow up and shoulder the authority of a King. Jesus the Judge deserves representation!
