Scripture: Genesis 18:19

Genesis 18:19 says, “For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.” One of God’s primary assignments for Abraham was to keep the way of the Lord and the way of the Lord consisted of two things. One was to do righteousness so that we could do the next which is judgment. What do we find out about tongues? We find that tongues always brings a plumbline of righteousness and a measuring line of judgment. It establishes that in us so we become the living walking agent of His righteousness and the representative of His justice. When we pray in tongues and then follow God’s lead, we get to declare His declarations where needed and thereby becomes His voice to advance God’s purposes in the earth. When the church is not the agent of righteousness and cannot carry a plumbline of judgment, then we can end up losing our nation because the church becomes saltless. That is a complete forfeiture of our covenant of salt. The Kingdom is not then established in our life and through us as it should be. What Abraham walked out in the Old Testament, God gave us access to, but God also gave us a way to pray it into existence. One way to activate this judicial calling is through praying in tongues!
