Scripture: Revelation 19:15a
The fruit of the Kingly Christ that corresponds with meekness is in Revelation 19:15a. Verse 19:15a says, “Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations…” If we take the bit and bridle and qualify for the prah-ot-ace, the meekness side of Christ, the other side is we get to speak and release a sword that will strike the nations and turn captivity. Where is that side of the church? Why do we not see more of that? It is coming and it is coming quickly. I recently received a call from a friend returning from an African nation. He was teaching on the justice of Christ when the Lord said, “Give these people an example…” My friend prayed that any past or present national leader, who had sold national resources for personal gain and refused to repent, would be removed by God’s judicial hand. Within five hours, a previous President who fully fit that profile dropped dead. The fear of God fell on the assembly. God’s next command was, “Ask for the 200-acre parcel of ground, rich in resources, and I’ll demonstrate what I will do for the righteous.” God’s Hand moved and my friend is now in a place to develop land that will help lift poverty in this third-world country. Knowing the judicial Christ made the difference. Justice removed a mammonite leader and released natural resources to bless people. How many of us need to possess resources through the judicial Christ? It is only after God’s judgment fell on the previous leader that these resources were released. Now how many times do we think that could be duplicated in the days ahead? The judicial Christ is moving. The question is, have we walked in enough meekness to qualify to speak words that bring His justice?
