Scripture: II Samuel 7:9
II Samuel 7:9 is the foundation for the judicial part of the covenant of Sure Mercy that God made with David. Verse 9 says, “And I have been with you wherever you have gone, and have cut off all your enemies from before you, and have made you a great name, like the name of the great men who are on the earth.” The covenant of Sure Mercy that Jesus guaranteed by His Blood for you and I gives us the legal covenantal, judicial right to ask God to cut off through the Holy Spirit’s direction, an unrelenting enemy. The issue of the covenant of Sure Mercy is the issue of Godly rule in the nation. As a recipient of the covenant of Sure Mercy, it is every believer’s obligation to rule in the power of the Spirit! I cannot run around and presumptively ask God to cut off everybody who annoys or angers me. That is not the character and the essence of the covenant. The character and essence of the covenant is that when an individual whether he be a president or a priest is steadfastly hindering the rule and purposes of God and is rebellious to the core and I encounter his rebellion and it is a hindrance to what God wants to do in my call, then I have the Biblical obligation of praying, ‘cut-off’ prayers. And if I do not do that, when I stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ I will be speechless at how I was captured by religious spirits and I never grew up into Him in all things. Do not be like the church of Thyatira in Revelation who allowed evil! Extend the rule of God as a covenant believer! Take your stand in how you have been created and for who you are! Learn to pray judicially-you will be amazed at what God does! Listen to the Holy Spirit and arise!
