“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!”
A few days ago in prayer, the passages in Esther chapters 3 and 9, the events of “Purim,” came to my attention. I had turned to it randomly. A day or so earlier I had heard news of an attempt at a UN resolution against Israel, with USA support?
Do we not know, evil does not go away because of the outcome of an election? If anything evil flails away in its wounded pain, in its rejection, its heart born darkness empowering it with a pathetic but powerful hope of survival. Its head must be bruised and it will be. Until then, our rejection of it is the righteous judgment that will judge us.
It has been several more days since then. With nothing particular in mind this morning in prayer I asked the Lord for His input as I usually do. This is what came to mind.
“Do not say in your heart, ‘We are not in power yet!’ for you have always been in power as I am in power; you have not exerted power and authority. Your enemies use a dagger to slay. You have a two edged sword with which you capture and defeat. As out of My mouth comes the sword, out of your mouth it must come. My sword is your sword, Today I remind the world, including Russia, of “Purim” and the disastrous conclusion of those who plotted the destruction of My people the Jews. Reject, reject, reject the resolutions exerting power, of demands upon Israel; heed the warning of the God of Israel, the God some of you claim to embrace. You can read of My faithfulness toward this land and people even in the rebellion they have walked in. Do not count their rebelliousness as a license for you to dominate or capture. Yes they will be judged as all men will be, but not by you. For My names sake, (Yahweh, “salvation”) I will be patient until the time comes, for I am salvation first, destruction is of your own doing.”
Darkness does not go away. It is overcome by Light until it is sent away by The Light.
Lord I pray hearts around the world, nations who have influence, will heed Your instruction with reverence toward Israel lest they find themselves again on the eve of destruction.
