Scripture: Deuteronomy 8:18-20
Deuteronomy 8:18-20 says, “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. Then it shall be, if you by any means forget the Lord your God, and follow other God’s, and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish. As the nations which the Lord destroys before you, so you shall perish, because you would not be obedient to the voice of the Lord your God.” In the last eight years America has continued to choose abortion and the shedding of innocent blood. The people prior to the current leadership change chose a man who charted a path of destruction. And the changing of marriage and the allowing of legal homosexual unions is the second death sentence to a nation according to Scripture. No culture can embrace homosexual marriage and survive. Unless that path changes in America, we are history. The third core issue on the path to destruction was giving Israel over to potential nuclear destruction by favoring Iran with both approval and finances to strengthen their power and might. That is unquestionably both treason and will invite further destruction. Thank God the current president is attempting to reverse that course. The old path invites God’s wrath. In verse 18 referring to the ‘Lord your God’ we discover the Hebrew term ‘Jehovah your Elohim’. This is important! If we do not recognize who Jehovah our Elohim is then we miss a key truth. It is He that gives the power to get wealth that He may establish His covenant which He swore to our spiritual fathers. The covenant that God gave to Abraham promises provision. That is a Biblical covenantal promise. We serve God, we expect provision. When the wicked rule, the righteous groan. Many are still groaning as we try to overcome the devastation of the previous president. Satan’s plan is to fill the earth with iniquity forcing judgment and destruction before the blessings God intends come. It is the church’s responsibility to confront evil in government. The government is guaranteed to fail without the church’s input. Does God really give us power to get wealth that He may establish His covenant. Yes, He does for our life and provision as well as for confronting evil. Wealth transfer is the function of judicial prayer and that begins with partnering with the Holy Spirit in prayer!
