SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15
Scripture: Deuteronomy 18:15-19,
Deuteronomy 18:15-19 says, “And it came to pass at midnight that the Lord struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of livestock. So Pharaoh rose in the night, he, all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where there was not one dead. Then he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, ‘Rise, go out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel. And go, serve the Lord as you have said. Also take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also.’ And the Egyptians urged the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste. For they said, ‘We shall all be dead.’ So the people took their dough before it was leavened, having their kneading bowls bound up in their clothes on their shoulders. Now the children of Israel had done according to the word of Moses, and they had asked from the Egyptians articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing. And the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.” This is the fruit of walking with Jesus the Judge. Are we ready to walk with Him? Are we seeking the zeal of the Lord of Hosts that will perform this? God wants to give it to us but we are the ones who have to ask for it. If the paths of wisdom are the keys to execute the judgment that fills the treasuries then we have to get to know Jesus the Judge and start walking with Him. How many churches are doing that? Is the church really getting ready to participate with God in judgment or does it seem the church is on a different path? Does the church consistently offer overflowing grace even to the wicked? Tolerance of evil and passivity toward it is a path to forfeiting God’s best. The church is not yet on the road of the passion to possess the Kingdom. Praying in tongues is a direct path to walking in that arena and getting ready to speak forth Spirit-birthed judicial prayers! It is time for good men, for God’s men, to stand up and declare the Word of the Lord! The time is now!
