Scripture: 2 Samuel 7:7-9
2 Samuel 7:7-9 says, “Wherever I have moved about with all the children of Israel, have I ever spoken a word to anyone from the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to shepherd My people Israel, saying, ‘Why have you not built Me a house of cedar?’ Now therefore, thus shall you say to My servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts: “I took you from the sheepfold, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people, over Israel. 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.”’” This is the second covenant of salt that was made with David which also guarantees a man on his Throne in dominion forever? It says in verse 9, “And I have been with you wherever you have gone, and have cut off all your enemies from before you…” A Davidic covenant that Jesus bought and paid for and guaranteed to every believer promises that God will cut off our enemies. He not only loves us enough to save us, but He loves us enough to cut off those who will not relent in standing against us. That is the essence of the second covenant of salt. So if I can pass the money test, I now have access to not only the blessing and provision that guarantees destiny but I have access to the second covenant of salt promising dominion in Israel in order to move God’s Hand against a determined enemy. If the enemy will not relent, God will ultimately be forced to put him in the grave. This is the God Who desires to kill because of what the enemy is doing to undermine His eternal purposes. We are the apple of His eye. When the enemy sets his hand against us, then as the apple of God’s eye, we get to invoke, if necessary, the God of khaw-fates, ‘The God Who desires to kill.’ Know Him, love Him, walk with Him. He is our passport through the end-times to possessing the full measure of harvest. Anything less and we will not be prepared for what is coming.
