THE VENGEANCE OF GOD
MAIN TEXT: HEBREWS 10:30
“For we know him that hath said, vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, the Lord shall judge his people.”
Psalm 9:8 – “And He shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness”
Beloved of God, you cannot afford to be gentle with your enemy, the devil because, if you do not get him first he will get you. When the woman (widow) in the book of Luke 18:1-3, prayed thus “avenge me of my adversary.” It means that the adversary was not a stranger, and that the adversary, must have wronged her significantly. Once the adversary discovers your weakness he will keep hitting you at the same spot.
The fact that the woman cried to the judge shows that she knew she could not fight for herself, she needed a higher power. That higher power is the Lord of Host, who says “vengeance is mine. “Plead my cause O Lord, with them that strive with me; fight against them that fight with me” (Psalm 35:1).
Goliath of Gath was a mighty external enemy, however it was easy for David to kill him. This is because David knew that the spiritual controls the physical, even from the utterance of his adversary who said in 1 Samuel 17:43
…..Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? David treated him like a dog.
When some people are asked to pray to God to fight their battles for them, they keep mute, thinking it is wrong to say such prayers. While we are not permitted to take vengeance on our adversaries, we must report the case to God. The Righteous judge and His judgment is the most accurate as he did for Daniel, the three Hebrew boys, Mordecai and Esther, King David etc, who reported their cases to Him.
GOD WILL AVENGE FOR YOU OF YOUR ADVERSARIES.
