“We won’t revenge things in a just way except we allow the Just God”
The voice of revenge has been since ages and even till now. No one ever called for vengeance until Abel, this was when his brother killed him and Abel’s blood cried out to God.
Genesis 4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
The truth is our wrath does not work the righteousness of God. If we place all things to His hands so also must we take this to Him. Something comes to mind about prayer, it was heard that that Mary the Queen of Scotland said
I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the assembled armies of Europe -Mary, Queen of Scotland
We must not shift away from prayer because that’s the power of the church. The link is that there is what to do when our heart calls for revenge, it’s to pray. Revenge has never been ours in any case that it might be. Often when we take to revenge we kind of fold God’s hand and do our thing our way, when actually the battle is the Lord and not ours, so also is vengeance which the Lord said is His.
Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
“There is a waiting wisdom of God when it comes to revenge, such that when He comes He’ll be just”
The Lord knows how to avenge but there is a waiting part to it which we lack. Let’s adjust our minds to God’s word and shift from saying should we be fools? What did Paul say we are fools for your sake
1 Corinthians 4:10 We are fools for Christ’s sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.
The culture of God’s Kingdom is not revenge but to stick to prayers. For some time now I perceived men has an intention to drive the church from prayers and bring them into flesh. Once the church come into flesh they have come to a place against God, so they will defeat us through that. Men has felt prayer is weak but it is not true. I see the reason the Lord is slow to anger and rich in mercy. When He comes to take vengeance no man can take such an one from Him. There is a waiting wisdom of God in vengeance and that wisdom is what kills the enemy. He becomes just by patience in vengeance but when we do not submit to Him and we take vengeance to ourselves then we become unjust because He already said vengeance is His!
I dedicate this to a friend Ayo Oliyide.
