As the election is there this weekend, I hope those that follow my blog outside Sweden will take time to seek the Lord for this confused and broken nation.
I’m pretty sure that the only way this nation (Sweden) will be changed is when God refuses to go for the script the “people” tell Him to run.
A nation asking for kings is a nation always in trouble. A church, using the verse of Judges 21:25, to emphasis the need of “leadership “ or kings is a dangerous power focused entity.
“And the people of Benjamin did so and took their wives, according to their number, from the dancers whom they carried off. Then they went and returned to their inheritance and rebuilt the towns and lived in them. And the people of Israel departed from there at that time, every man to his tribe and family, and they went out from there every man to his inheritance. In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” Judges 21:23-25 ESV
When we use the verse, just go for the full context where God told the people to be a priestly nation, where only He is the Voice, the King, and where fatherhood is the rule.
And then, sometimes realizing that they need what they ask in order for them to cry out for the release of the answer they demanded, He gives in, with a broken (Father)heart.
“And the Lord said to Samuel, “Obey the voice of the people in all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them.”
1 Samuel 8:7 ESV
May God refuse to answer the prayers that go with a limitation of His Choice.
May the voices be silenced and the scripts be burned.
May Sweden be the first “kingdom” to be hit by the stone mentioned in Daniel 2.
“And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever, just as you saw that a stone was cut from a mountain by no human hand, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold. A great God has made known to the king what shall be after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.” Daniel 2:44-45 ESV
Let us declare:
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
This is my 911 proclamation
