Scripture: Psalm 55:19-21
Psalm 55:19-21 says, “God will hear and afflict them, Even He who abides from of old. Because they do not change, Therefore they do not fear God. He has put forth his hands against those who were at peace with him; he has broken his covenant. The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, But war was in his heart. His words were softer than oil, Yet they were drawn swords.” Do you know any politicians or leaders who qualify? Do you know anybody who talks like that? One who said one thing before they were elected, but did exactly the opposite afterward? Do you know anybody who qualifies and looks like the description in verses 19-21? If a leader qualifies in the description of verses 19-21, he qualifies for the prayer of verse 15. Do you want peace? Pray the prayer of verse 15 so you can have the peace of verses 18-21! If the church would wake up, believe their covenant and act on it, perhaps we would see God intervene and give us our nation back. It is that simple! It is a matter of prayer! When you pray, can you pray the Bible? Can you pray Scripture? Can you pray the Word? Do not tell me you cannot pray the Word! Surely we can pray the Word of God. If we cannot pray the Word, we are in trouble! Do not fall for the line, ‘that is not New Testament!’. Anybody who says that is not New Testament is either in major denial or is unschooled in an understanding of the whole counsel of God. A passive church is the fruit of only Priestly ministry! Turn the other cheek loses the harvest!
