Good Morning Warrior!
It’s The Lord’s Day, Hallelujah!
Word for the Day:
(2 Samuel 21)
“Resolution of Injustice”
Text: 2 Samuel 21:1
“Now there was a famine in the days of David for three years, year after year; and David inquired of the LORD. And the LORD answered, “It is because of Saul and his bloodthirsty house, because he killed the Gibeonites.”
“Resolution of Injustice,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
After three years of continual famine King David senses that something is wrong in Israel’s relationship with God; so “he “inquired of the Lord. And the Lord answered, it’s because of Saul’s injustice of killing the Gibeonites that he was supposed to protect as King of Israel.(Joshua 9:3).
This Injustice was Still Waiting To Be Resolved; and God Brought This To King David’s Attention with these three years of famine!
Injustice, like sin, never fades away with time and memory - it Waits For God’s Justice To Be Satisfied.
It was a Curse over Israel and David asked the Gibeonites what was required by them, to in effect, to turn this curse of injustice into a blessing of resolution.
According to the Law, the Gibeonites were “the avenger of blood,” and therefore they were allowed to dictate the terms of resolution; so they asked to execute 7 men from the house of Saul, and David agreed.
God saw this Resolution of Injustice and healed the land of Israel, and the latter rains fell, showing that “God heeded the prayer for the land.”(v.14).
This reminds me of the Injustice of rebellion and lawlessness against God in my life as an unbeliever. I was created to Love and Serve Him and yet I chose to rebel against Him. This Injustice was a capital offense in the Court of Heaven, and could only be Satisfied By the death of a Perfect Human Being of flesh and blood. (Heb.2:14).
My Commander and King Jesus Christ IS The Perfect Human Being, Son of God and Son of Man.(Eph.2:14-16) HE IS THE RESOLUTION and THE PEACEMAKER! Oooooh Rah!
Oh Hallelujah Warrior! We are under a New Covenant of Grace and Mercy; and We Love and Serve “….. the Just and The Justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus!”(Rom.3:26)
Oh Hallelujah! Our Commander Jesus Christ IS The Resolution of Injustice for the one who has faith in Jesus Christ! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
