Scripture: Exodus 32:25-26
Exodus 32:19-26 says, “Now when Moses saw that the people were unrestrained for Aaron had not restrained them, to their shame among their enemies, then Moses stood in the entrance of the camp, and said, ‘Whoever is on the LORD’s side—come to me!’ And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together to him.” Here we find out that in order to save the nation, Moses had to deal with the perpetrators of sexual sin. He saw the people were unrestrained courtesy of Aaron’s poor leadership decisions and so Moses had to draw a line. And he said, ‘Whoever is on the Lord’s side, let him come over to me.’ Fortunately for him he got the response that he was looking for, so now the agents of justice have been selected and they are about to be released. That is something we in this present hour need to understand is happening right now in our country. In order to save a nation selective judgments have to be prayed on perpetrators. If you and I are going to do what Moses did, if we are going to take the Sonship gifts to gain a harvest in the last days, the first manifestation of obtaining a harvest out of a wayward nation is to pray judgment on the perpetrators and restore the fear of the Lord. Unless we can restore the fear of the Lord, we don’t get the full harvest. Isaiah 33:6 says, “He will be the sure foundation of your times; A rich store of salvation, wisdom and knowledge. The fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure.” If we can restore the fear of the Lord, if we can bring the judgment of God, then we open the way for the harvest. Moses had to do it and you and I are going to have to do it. Moses in this passage is our example. The question is, will we jettison tradition and replace unsanctified mercy with judicial prayer!
