Scripture: Revelation 6:7,8
In Revelation 6:7,8 we are told, “When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, ‘Come and see.’ So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.” Here again we see the Sword released with, one fourth of the population of the earth dying. Today, that would be 2 billion people gone because of a refusal to repent and turn. The Sword is prominent in the last days. It is very much a part of the book of Revelation and it has a very distinct purpose. That purpose is to stop evil and bring justice. This is the judicial realm of the King. This is the dimension where the King is responsible to release the Sword of the Lord on perpetrators to bring justice. Can we step into this kingdom realm? Can we walk with the Holy Spirit? Can we positionally move our feelings out of the way so that we can execute the Sword of the Lord by the Holy Spirit and not by how we feel at any given moment? This is why we train for the King’s anointing. Devastation by natural disaster is increasing dramatically. Can we minister if it hits near home? Will we respond? If we lived in Japan recently, what we believe about the tribulation either beginning or ending is moot. Tsunami and nuclear reactor melt-down created unbelievable tribulation. Tornados have created the same things in pockets of America. Are we ready?
