Scripture: Matt 12:19-21, Acts 13:10-12
Matthew 12:19-21 says, “He will not quarrel nor cry out, Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets. A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench, Till He sends forth justice to victory; And in His name Gentiles will trust.” Jesus forever connected judgment and victory. He made the Throne accessible for you and I so that we could also have access to covenant justice guaranteeing that we would carry the way of the Lord. There is really no excuse for us not walking in it! What God declared to Abraham, Jesus obviously exhibited and made available to us through His death, burial and resurrection. There is no backing up on this. It is as clear as it can be. What God declared to Abraham, Jesus makes available to you and I! When the Apostle Paul faced a false prophet perverting the way of the Lord, he declared judgment and the Holy Spirit performed it! Acts 13:10-12 states, “[Paul] said, ’O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? And now, indeed, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time.’ And immediately a dark mist fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand. Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had been done, being astonished at the teaching of the Lord.” Truly Paul carried the judicial anointing in Bible days and that same Holy Spirit still declares judgment today!
