Scripture: Romans 8:24-39
Romans 8:24-39 says, “For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: ‘For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.’ Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” This passage makes it clear that one assignment of the Holy Spirit is to teach us how to pray. And part of that praying is judicial intercession that will set the creation free and give us a harvest out of a generation caught in sin. God has predestined that our children be saved. If they are caught in sexual sin, there is intercession that will bring judicial manifestations that will move them out of that lifestyle and into the freedom of God. We have a promise, “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you and your house will be saved.” God knows how to deliver people that are caught in deception. He knows how to bring His Holy fear. There are judgment prayers to be prayed that will release our children and grandchildren. Will we allow the Holy Spirit to teach us how to pray those prayers and gain a harvest out of the coming generations in the last days? God is asking us to walk with Him in that dimension. The question is, will we do it?
