The Fullness of Time
God said to Abraham, “I’m going to give you this land. As far as I’m concerned, it’s already yours.” But then he added later, “I can’t give you that land right now. It’s going to be 400 years, because the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.” Regarding this nation, I think God has been waiting in part for the Church to get ready. The bowls of intercession just have to get filled. Only God knows when the bowls are filled. Only God knows when the iniquity of the Amorites is complete. Regarding that iniquity, it’s as if he says, “When their sin is at a certain level, then I can righteously give the land to somebody else.” That’s what I think has been happening this last year. The iniquity ripened and the prayers of the saints filled the bowls. Now, God is moving to change this nation.
“Not until the fourth generation will your descendants return here to possess the land, because the sin of the Amorite people has not yet reached its full measure.” (Genesis 15:16; The VOICE)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Have you felt anxious and wondered why God is taking His time dealing with your personal situation or with national sin?
Have you felt the press of intercession to push toward the “filling of the bowls”?
Rejoice, because God is moving in this year – 2018/5778 to fling open doors, deal with iniquitous patterns, and answer our long-time prayers.
Declare that iniquity is being judged, death cultures are reversing, righteousness will reign.
Determine to lovingly help those who have participated in the iniquities of the past. Do not rejoice over their fall. Catch them! We were born for such a time as this.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, You see the anxious hearts of Your people, so we bring them to You. At times, we haven’t understood why You appear to be taking your time. As always, Your Word holds the secret – iniquity was not yet full! That revelation gives us hope! So, we lean into the Words of the Lord that numerous prophetic voices have brought forth this year. Those voices are declaring that doors are opening, iniquitous structures are being judged, and righteousness will reign. Lord, take any gloating out of our hearts. Help us to pay attention to those whose hearts are turning, so we can be there to love them out of their shame and into Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ loving name, amen.
I decree that iniquities are coming into fullness and God is turning the nation for His purposes.
