Scripture: Exodus 34:5-7
In Exodus 34:5-7 Moses asked to see the glory of the Lord and the Lord came down in His glory. Moses experienced the Presence of God Himself and he got the revelation of Who God is as both Savior and Judge. This revelation was the key to intercession that saves a nation. This is what we are told. “Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, ‘The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.’” What do we know about God? God wants to forgive and mercy to flow, but in order for that to happen, repentance is necessary. If people refuse to turn, sometimes the perpetrators have to be visited with judgment to restore the fear of the Lord and thus save a society and a culture from destruction. When there is no fear of God, a culture is headed toward utter destruction and God is faithful to demonstrate it. He is the Faithful Redeemer and Restorer. Can we expect that for America? I absolutely believe we can! And we can be His representative agents in the earth to declare judgment, to pray it, and relentlessly pursue it until we can gain God’s intended harvest. God is building His church toward fullness for the great end-time harvest and that is what this study is all about.
