Scripture: 1 Chronicles 16:1-3,7, 14-22
1 Chronicles 16:1-3 says, “So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tabernacle that David had erected for it. Then they offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before God. 2 And when David had finished offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord. 3 Then he distributed to everyone of Israel, both man and woman, to everyone a loaf of bread, a piece of meat, and a cake of raisins.” On the day that David brought the Ark into the tabernacle of David, erected it and set it up, he composed a song to be sung over the Ark. Now the content of this song gives us the essence of what it means for God to set up, once again, the tabernacle of David. Not only did He have 24/7 worship and praise, but He had Judicial, Kingly declaration and intercession. We know that from verses 14-22. In verses 14-22 we are told, “He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth. Remember His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations, The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac, And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel for an everlasting covenant, Saying, ‘To you I will give the land of Canaan As the allotment of your inheritance,’ When you were few in number, Indeed very few, and strangers in it. When they went from one nation to another, And from one kingdom to another people, He permitted no man to do them wrong; Yes, He rebuked kings for their sakes, Saying, ‘Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.’” When God says, “I will set up the tabernacle of David so you might possess the remnant of the Gentiles…”, the key to the harvest is Judicial, Kingly prayer. It is praying against those who stand in the way and praying God’s Judicial Hand on them to remove them. So it is obvious that our tradition has extended the life of the wicked and shortened the life of the righteous. When we embrace the Judicial Christ and learn to pray against those who have chosen to extend wickedness, then we know we are on the right track and will see God’s harvest!
