Excerpt from Work of Righteousness 2010:
“Wilt Thou Tax the Righteous?
Kathie D and I had just returned home from a meeting in Broken Arrow on the 13th of March. Right after getting to the house we both started into hard praying for about forty-five minutes, then I went on into intercession. I told Kathie this has got to do with the health care bill now in congress. The burden in my heart literally expanded the walls of my abdomen and my chest. I started interceding as Abraham did with the Lord and the two angels following their lunch together, in Genesis 18:
17 And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;
18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him
20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?
25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
I have always been impressed that Jesus did not listen to hearsay, but He made a firsthand inspection of the situation before He would judge it. That I know He has done with me for all these years I have served him.
I begin to pray as Abraham prayed; it was powerful prayer of faith. “Wilt thou judge the righteous from the wicked? That be far from thee Lord!” That’s what I prayed, and then my prayer changed, “Lord wilt thou tax the righteous to reward the wicked? That be far from thee Lord! Shall not the judge of the whole earth do right?”
I knew I had a prayer from God and I am still praying it.”
Six years ago today I prayed this prayer about Obamacare. I have never accepted Obamacare for myself, my organization or my people. I trust in Jesus Christ raised from the dead and when He was raised from the dead He provided health and healing for all that would believe the gospel.
