1 Kings 19:15-18
Look at what God told Elijah. What happens when fullness of iniquity comes to a nation? Ahab and Jezebel brought fullness of iniquity to Israel. This passage says, “Then the Lord said to him: ‘Go return on your way to the Wilderness of Damascus; and when you arrive, anoint Hazael as king over Syria. Also you shall anoint Jehu the son of Nimshi as king over Israel. And Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place. It shall be that whoever escapes the sword of Hazael, Jehu will kill; and whoever escapes the sword of Jehu, Elisha will kill.” What do we learn? When fullness of iniquity comes to a nation God starts passing out the anointing to remove. His strategy is to bring His anointed people to take action in prayer and obedience to remove the evildoers. He looks for people He can anoint who will stand for the removal of the perpetrators. Is God looking for us? What kind of heart do we have? Are we willing to lay our lives down for our nation and for future generations? The anointing to remove is available. Will we embrace it and move into it for the saving of our nation? 1 Kings 19:18 says, “Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.” God has a remnant and that remnant is in His church. It is His plan to recruit warriors whom He can anoint to save this nation. Is He looking for you? I believe He Is! Has He found you? I trust He has. This is our greatest season of salvation through those who are willing to pay the price to move His Hand to save. May God arise and His enemies be scattered!
