MERCY FOR GENERATIONS

Jan 9, 2023

There is a mercy that has been preserved for you which is a remedy for every evil visitation in your life.

Exodus 34:5-10 “

5 Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.

6 And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth

7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

8 So Moses made haste and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped.

9 Then he said, “If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your inheritance.””

Moses found a way of making this bold prayer because of the way God introduced Himself Exodus 9:5-6.  

James 2:13 “For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.”

There are certain situations in our lives that the anointing can’t break, it’s judgement that gets rid of them.

Every legal curse upon a person cannot be reversed until judgement is made. That is why you must understand the root of the curse. God only grants you what is legal before Him Hebrews 12:24.

Mercy can never be granted until it is asked for. That is why prayer becomes very important 1 John 1:9.

Joshua 24:14-15 “Now therefore, fear the LORD, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the LORD!. 15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

You put away the gods through repentance in prayers.

1 Kings 13:1 “And behold, a man of God went from Judah to Bethel by the word of the LORD, and Jeroboam stood by the altar to burn incense.”

1 Kings 13:2 “Then he cried out against the altar by the word of the LORD, and said, “O altar, altar! Thus says the LORD: ‘Behold, a child, Josiah by name, shall be born to the house of David; and on you he shall sacrifice the priests of the high places who burn incense on you, and men’s bones shall be burned on you.””

1 Kings 13:3 “And he gave a sign the same day, saying, “This is the sign which the LORD has spoken: Surely the altar shall split apart, and the ashes on it shall be poured out.””

This was an altar that was empowering evil in the nation but a man of God split it and ended all the evil.

1 Kings 13:4 So it came to pass when King Jeroboam heard the saying of the man of God, who cried out against the altar in Bethel, that he stretched out his hand from the altar, saying, “Arrest him!” Then his hand, which he stretched out toward him, withered, so that he could not pull it back to himself

They had confidence in their altars but his hand withered.

1 Kings 13:5 “The altar also was split apart, and the ashes poured out from the altar, according to the sign which the man of God had given by the word of the LORD.”
