Scripture: Judges 20:26-36
God gave the battle plan that became victorious. And the judgment was disaster decreed by God upon the Benjamites and upon the city of Gibeah. And the disaster was decreed because there was no repentance. There is no getting around it – God said Gibeah had to be destroyed. The inhabitants of the land had to be destroyed. The land vomited out the inhabitants. Any nation that begins to fall into increasing sexual sin without turning, will walk this path. The Israelites had to execute judgment on Gibeah. God was willing to sacrifice an entire city and an entire tribe in order to cleanse the land so the remainder of the population would not be destroyed. Who are the present day guilty parties? To whom much is given, much is required! Our judges should be the first to have the fear of God fall on them. Judicial prayers initiated by the Holy Spirit should bring judgment on the judges that dictate abortion and sexual sin! Invoking the covenant of Sure Mercy on the nation means asking mercy for our nations and judgment on the perpetrators. It is how the Lord works in Scripture!
