Scripture: Genesis 15:14-16
Genesis 15:14-16 says, “And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions. Now as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.” It is obvious that the children of Israel were locked up in Egypt 400 years, waiting for the fullness of iniquity to take place on two levels. Fullness of iniquity in the land they were going to possess and fullness of iniquity by the Egyptians in how they were treated. Fullness of iniquity by the Egyptians guaranteed a judicial anointing for Moses! When fullness is reached, God responds. On one side, the judicial anointing came to judge all the gods of Egypt and set the people free. On the other, the judicial anointing came to dispossess all the tribes in the promised land. The fullness of iniquity is the chief trigger for judgment we find in the Old Testament. Fullness of iniquity is the leading trigger in Scripture that opens the door for the judgment of God in both a positive and a destructive way. God visited Abram because He needed to offer him the opportunity of doing judgment in order to save righteous Lot and his family. Are we available to pray judgment today to save the righteous so they do not suffer the same fate as the wicked? Can we train the church to walk with Jesus the Judge? Is it possible that we are approaching losing a major harvest because we do not know how to pray like Abraham? Abraham kept the way of the Lord. He did righteousness and he prayed judgment. Abraham moved God’s Hand to save Lot and his family. Are we moving God’s Hand to save the righteous? Are we doing judgment?
