Scripture: Isaiah 37:21,36
Isaiah 37 gives us another example of the destiny of a nation being threatened by an evil ruler. King Hezekiah prays concerning Sennacherib, the King of Assyria. His prayer for salvation was heard and termination was instituted. Isaiah 37:21 says, “Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD God of Israel, “Because you have prayed to Me against Sennacherib king of Assyria, this is the word which the LORD has spoken concerning him:…”’” Hezekiah prayed a termination prayer against Sennacherib and his plans for destruction of the nation of Israel. The fruit of that termination prayer brought the hand of God. Verse 36 records the first manifestation, “Then the angel of the LORD went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses—all dead.” Where are the termination prayers of the church for the evil, destructive leaders that desire the decimation and destruction of our nation’s destiny? The Bible clearly shows that when destiny is threatened, the church rises to pray termination prayers against that enemy and the hand of God moves to terminate those people. This is biblical covenant that has not changed. Biblical justice is as valid in the New Testament as it is in the Old. When are we going to begin to think like David? When will we think like Hezekiah? When will we think like Peter? When will we think like Paul? When destiny is threatened, you implore the covenant-keeping God to destroy the enemy and remove them so that destiny can be achieved.
