Truth and Consequences series
The Strength Of Truth
Terrifying realities force us to face the Truth without the sweetness of sugar mixed in to counter bitterness of our human piety. The harlot Rahab told the men of Israel that she recognized the Hand of God in their lives and very importantly the sovereignty of God. She decided to ally with the people on the Lord's side and became a member of the linage of Jesus Christ. In consequence, Paul in the letter to the Romans gives this instruction, vengeance is the Lords', He will settle all acts of wrongness and do this thing, treat evil with kindness, feed your enemies for by doing so you will establish the Grace of the Kingdom of God with His Mercy. Do this and earn a reward that is bigger than anything you can buy, you will have the strength of Truth-nothing in life is stronger. Truth is the strength of weakness.
And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
El Simchath Gili, God My Exceeding Joy (Psalm 43:4); we come in a spirit of oneness rendering absolute thanks for Your Unique Kindness that we have no right too. For the Joy we share as we study Your Word to understand that we only need to allow You to avenge us. We declare and decree blessing upon those who feed their enemies according to Your commandment, so that we may draw our enemies into the Kingdom of God to become the Grace of God. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
