Scripture: Exodus 32:34-35
Exodus 32:34-35 says, “Now therefore, go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold, My Angel shall go before you. Nevertheless, in the day when I visit for punishment, I will visit punishment upon them for their sin.” So the LORD plagued the people because of what they did with the calf which Aaron made. God said, ‘Look, you have sinned and there is a penalty. I am not going to kill you because Moses interceded for you. Moses saved your life, but there are affliction consequences that you are going to have to pay because of what you have done.’ One of the things we get to do in the last days is that we get to draw out a distinction before the people of the judgments that have been averted and the ones that are still coming. If we are going to walk with the Lord in the last days we have to be fully agreeing with Him and representing Him so that we can identify the judgments that come to be redemptive. Those judgments amend behavior by restoring the fear of the Lord! Judgments that cut off or terminate the brazen leaders that have their hearts set on active, blatant, hardened rebellion are mercy to the nation. Those hardened in rebellion have already been given over to the fullness of their sin and iniquity so they cannot destroy society! Walking with God in the last days is not easy, because we have to represent both the Judicial Christ and the Saving Christ.
