Scripture: Jeremiah 34:18-20, Psalm 55:15
Jeremiah 34:18-20 says, “And I will give the men who have transgressed My covenant, who have not performed the words of the covenant which they made before Me, when they cut the calf in two and passed between the parts of it—the princes of Judah, the princes of Jerusalem, the eunuchs, the priests, and all the people of the land who passed between the parts of the calf—I will give them into the hand of their enemies and into the hand of those who seek their life. Their dead bodies shall be for meat for the birds of the heaven and the beasts of the earth.” We know from Jeremiah 34:18-20 exactly what God did with Abraham. He made a Blood Covenant. Here we see the leaders and people of Israel making a Blood Covenant with God. The princes of Judah, the princes of Jerusalem, the eunuchs, the priests and all the people of the land made a Blood Covenant and they were breaking that Blood Covenant and what did God say He would do to them? He said, “I will give them into the hand of their enemies and into the hand of those who seek their life. Their dead bodies shall be for meat for the birds of the heaven and the beasts of the earth.” We have the covenant authority to ask God to silence or destroy all those who come against the church! Those who want to silence us get silenced. Is it any wonder that in Psalm 55:15 King David prayed, “Let death seize them and take them alive into hell.” That is a Godly covenantal biblical prayer for an enemy that is trying to silence our voice and we need to pray it. When it fits and the Spirit leads us, those of us walking from a platform of righteousness should pray it. David had no problem praying it and Jesus says in Revelation 22, “I am the root and the offspring of David.” The “root and offspring” literally means the ‘root and fruit.’ Jesus gave David that prayer and He answered it for him. And death did seize his enemies and they did go alive into hell. When Supreme Court justices, senators, representatives and presidents set themselves as enemies of the church, when the Spirit leads, we can pray David’s prayer. The Kingdom of God will be established far more slowly if we fail to pray judgment. We need to learn the Word, meditate on it, understand it and begin doing our job as believers! Let us establish the Kingdom of God and move His Hand for our harvest!
