Every Thursday we have "The Call to Pray for our Nation." Last night one of the scriptures we prayed was Psalms 37:28 which says,
"For the LORD loves justice, And does not forsake His saints;
They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
We were led by Holy Spirit to pray regarding the Sure Mercies of David. In that revelation you find God's covenant of sure mercy that He made with King David. It basically reveals this. The mercy of God is revealed when God helped David by destroying his enemies. If you' like a great teaching on the Sure Mercies of David I'd recommend my friend and mentor's book, The Sure Mercy of David by Al Houghton.
This morning I began examining the Hebrew word translated "cut off." I was shocked by what I found. It is because that word is directly related to covenant.
