Scripture: Isaiah 42:3,4
Verses 3 and 4 state,” A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench; He will bring forth justice for truth, He will not fail nor be discouraged, Til He has established justice in the earth; And the coastlands shall wait for His law.” One of the first things that Jesus did by His death, burial and resurrection was that He established a link between God’s law and His judgment. The truth of God’s law became the plumbline for God’s judgment. Kings bring justice over the violation of God’s laws. That is the job of a king, and because all of us have been made kings and priests it is our job to pray justice whenever God’s Word is consistently and rebelliously violated! We do not turn the other cheek and pray for the enemy all the time. By only teaching the church to forgive, and bless and pray for the enemy we have enabled unspeakable evil and it has done nothing but steal freedoms from this action for the last seventy years. That has to change. It is time to restore the fear of the Lord and that means we have to pray the judgment of God on violators who will not turn.
