Scripture: Genesis 12:14-18
Both the New Testament and the Old are replete with examples of God’s judicial standard and how it operates when the church is touched by the enemy. In this passage Sarah was taken into Pharaoh’s tent. I am sure neither Sarah nor Abraham was silent in their praying God’s covenant over this situation. The praying part is our part. In verse 17, the manifestation of the judicial is God’s part. Verse 17 says, “But the Lord plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram’s wife.” God did not just intervene in a minor way. He intervened with ‘great plagues’. What would great plagues look like today? Can we expect the manifestation of some great plagues? Will the church take its part in selectively praying them on the wicked? Are we willing to obey the Spirit’s promptings as we are led into this path? Isaiah 54 says that it is our responsibility.
