Scripture: Psalm 149:1-9
Psalm 149 boldly declares God’s purpose for the church! God has given the honor of executing justice to believers. Psalm 149 says that the whole purpose is, “to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment—this honor have all His saints.” How can we get away from the obvious intent of this Psalm? A believing people who refuse to step into their Kingly anointing, who refuse to ask God to open the door of death and usher in the enemies, get what they deserve. Thomas Sowell recently wrote an article about the current administration in which he talked about all those who were captured at the border from terrorist sponsoring nations and how they were released on their own recognizance within the United States. His point was when it comes to national security the current administration does not have a clue. I guess when you sue a state for trying to secure its border, everyone would recognize that immediately. But what about the damage, what about the projected two million potential terrorists among us? How do we pray about demon-possessed Muslims? Psalm 149 tells us precisely how to pray. This is where you ask God, to open, to use the key of death and usher them through the door before they can destroy the land. Are we praying that way? We have the authority! What if God is waiting on us? What if He is not doing anything because we’re not doing anything? I sure would not want to get to heaven and find out that I was responsible for not reigning in two million terrorists. Hezekiah prayed against his enemy and one angel killed 185,000 in one night! That same angel could use two weeks of work!
