Scripture: Exodus 6:1-6
In Exodus 6:1-6 God reveals that He is the Covenant Maker and the Covenant Keeper of Israel. As a result of making covenant with them He will intervene when they are in bondage with great judgments and He will destroy the bondage-makers. After years and years of freedom it is important that the church realizes that we have a Covenant Keeping God who will intervene in our behalf and destroy the bondage-makers. Those bondage-makers come in the form of ungodly politicians who violate biblical boundaries making the nation apostate and guaranteeing judgment. Our appeal to God has to be for His judgment on the bondage-makers and those who actively violate biblical boundaries, releasing judgment and death on the nation. Leaders who seek to silence Godly voices in the public square and arrogant judges who decide they can change God’s law birth death and destruction. They deserve the full measure of God’s judicial intervention. It is the job of the church to pray, declare and decree the judgment written. If we allow the bondage of Supreme Court justices to stand, it is simply because we have not done what the Israelites did when they were in bondage in Egypt. They cried out to God and put a demand on Him for the judgment written. When we learn what our covenant rights and responsibilities are, it is up to us to declare them in prayer before God’s Throne. God can easily remove treasonous politicians and judges! Our job is to ask in prayer!
