Saying, “Touch Not My Anointed, Do My Prophets No Harm.” Psalm 105:15
For months, the Lord has had me teaching about breaking evil covenants and curses. He took me back to the Old Testament scriptures showing me what was required of His people to enter into their promised land. I noticed that Moses wrote about two kings being slain by God. Not only did he write about them, but their names were chanted in victory songs. I was curious. Why did God highlight king Og of Bashan and Sihon king of the Amorites in so many verses in the Bible? There were many kings killed in the Bible, but what as it about these two?
So, the Lord took me back to the first mention of king Og of Bashan and Sihon, the king of the Amorites (Numbers 21). When God sent His people into the land and directed which way they should go, the people asked permission to cross through the land of these kings. Sihon not only refused to let them pass over the land, but he also gathered his people to war against Israel. They fought against God’s people and lost their lives, and the Children of Israel ended up possessing all of their land and its villages. When they approached Bashan, king Og did not wait for the people to ask permission to pass over his land. He immediately went out against God’s people to war. “And the LORD said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have delivered him into thy hand, and all his people, and his land; and thou shalt do to him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.” So God’s people killed the king and his people until there were none left alive, and they possessed the land (Numbers 21:21-35)
That night after reading this story in the Bible, the Lord explained why these kings were killed. He said it was, “because they refused My people passage to reach their promised land.” The Lord said this is why His “vengeance” is needed in this hour. God’s vengeance comes for one purpose, to enable His people to enter into their promise from the Lord. We are in the season of God’s vengeance. Anyone who stands in the way of our reaching our promise from God could be subject to death.
Remember what God told Abraham? “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you (Genesis 12:3).” God is not angry at anybody. The Lord does not care who is in the way, be it a king or a commoner. He has a job that needs to get done and anyone in the way will be moved by force, even by death.
Here is the warning for us all. Avoid arguing with people who seem to block your way to what God says is yours. Give them to God. Keep moving forward towards the promise God gave you. Do whatever He tells you to do. Go wherever He tells you to go, and of course speak whatever the Holy Spirit tells you to speak. Then watch God work in your favor.
The promise is yours, but the battle belongs to the Lord. Watch as the angel of the Lord goes before you and brings you into your promise. Obey God, and He will cut off your enemies (Exodus 23:20-23).
“Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD,
which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians [enemies] whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”
