Scripture: Genesis 19:5-11
In Genesis 19:5-11 we are told, “And they called to Lot and said to him, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.’ So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, and said, ‘Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.’ And they said, ‘Stand back!’ Then they said, ‘This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.’ So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.” Here, we begin to see the power of Abraham’s judicial intercession. The angels go down to the city, visit Lot and the men immediately surround the house and demand, “Bring them out to us so we can know them.” The homosexual mobs of Sodom would not change. So the angels struck them with blindness and it is obvious why the outcry or zah-ak had preceded from the land. If we look at the abundance of homosexual marriage, we see a necessity of praying judgment! What the church does in the next few years will either loose or gain a great harvest. How the church chooses to pray in the next few years will either save or lose the nation. Is God a God of mercy? Yes, He is. Does He want to save generations of people practicing sexual immorality? Of course He does. Jesus died so they would not have to go to hell. But someone has to pray judicially and put a demand on God’s covenant for this intervention. Abraham prayed for it and the angels intervened in Lot’s behalf. Isn’t it time we learned how to pray judgment prayers that will save? This is what the way of the Lord is all about. Abraham was the father of all them that believe, let us follow in his footsteps.
