Scripture: Psalm 19:1; Isaiah 9:7
Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.” God is the Creator. And as the Creator, He is the One Who sets the rules of life. He sets the rules for His creation. When He set the rules for His creation, He ordained a Savior. Isaiah 9:7 says, “Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” Judgment and justice are the foundation of the Throne and the foundation upon which the creation rests. God has called us to participate with Him in judgment and justice. Justice is the Hebrew word tsed-aw-kaw and it means, ‘Conformity to the ethical or moral standard of Scripture. When the ethical and moral standard of Scripture is repeatedly violated and the cup is full, then God’s Judicial Hand comes to save the Creation from the destruction of sin that is rising in it. This is where the church has not shouldered our call to participate in the last days. As we awaken to this dimension, we will find that the realm of the Spirit has both mercy for salvation and mercy for justice. It is not right that the righteous endure the penalty of the wicked. That is where the church has to walk in great intimacy with the Lord in the last days. That is the call and that is the essence of the Key of David. The Key of David, when we qualify, begins to manifest in this realm. It is the realm of the Spirit that has been hidden from many of us for our whole life. And yet, in the last days, God is beginning to expand our understanding of it. He is adding to our understanding and calling us into this dimension – not for devastation and destruction, but so that as many as possible can be saved. Man’s hardness grows to a place where he cannot be reached unless he sees the Judicial Hand of God. We are at that juncture now and this demands the church shoulder a new dimension of governmental faith! If Peter and Paul could do it, we can do it!
