Scripture: Hebrews 6:13-20
Hebrews 6:13-20 says, “For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, saying, ‘Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.’ And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. For men indeed swear by the greater, and an oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute. Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” This passage tells us how strong our covenant is with God because God made a covenant promise with Abraham. He did it through Blood Covenant. verse 17 says to demonstrate the, “the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.” What is the hope that is set before us? That God is a Covenant-Keeper. You could not be an enemy of David and live when he prayed Spirit-led judicial prayers. And you cannot be our enemies and live if we will enter into the Holy of Holies and we will pray Spirit-led prayers against our enemies and their plots against the church and the nation. We have the right to ask God to visit them and reward them according to their works. But our prayers have to be Spirit-led and we have to be standing on a foundation of righteousness. The Kingdom gets established when judgment is prayed and executed. We had better wake up and start walking with God in His fullness.
