Scripture: 1 Samuel 15:8
Verse 8 says, “He also took Agag king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword. But Saul and the people spared Agag and the best of the sheep, the oxen, the fatlings, the lambs, and all that was good, and were unwilling to utterly destroy them. But everything despised and worthless, that they utterly destroyed.” Saul and the people made it abundantly clear to God that they did not accept His yardstick for judgment. They likely figured it was a complete waste to destroy what was valuable to them financially. They failed the money test. And what did God do to King Saul? He removed him because he failed the judicial test and forfeited the rule of his house over Israel. How much is being forfeited by the church today? So much that we can hardly describe it all. But once we begin to walk with Jesus the Judge, we will begin to see the fullness of all Christ has. That is the day our harvest begins. Then and only then will the Kingdom start to be established in our nations. And without walking with Jesus the Judge, it is not going to happen.
