Curt Landry begins his message on Faith and Love with the story from 2 Kings 7:1-3. Four leprous men are sitting at the gate of a city in famine and under siege by the enemy. The lepers couldn’t go into the city for fear of the people and they couldn’t go out of the gate for fear of the enemy. The prophet Elisha had just prophesied that by tomorrow the famine would be over. The king and his officer rejected the prophecy, but the four lepers had a divine appointment. They arose in the morning and went to the enemy’s camp. The famine was over.
In Luke 17:14 and John 5:7-9, Jesus also saw lepers waiting for their deliverance. He said to them “Go…” They obeyed the Word of the Lord in their divine appointment and were healed as they went. When we have an appointed time to arise and go, we will be given everything we need. We only need to arise and go. Obedience is the key to break the assignment of the enemy.
You may have felt like one of those lepers… rejected and misunderstood, not able to feel at home in many places. Who are you in the story of the lepers?
- are you the one who rejects the prophecy—the Word of the Lord…
- are you the king who doesn’t know what to do…
- are you the leper that ventures out from the gate…
- are you the one who arises by faith, picks up your bed and goes—not leaving any evidence of what you used to hang on to?
- Do you have a divine appointment? Is this the year of divine appointment for the spiritual famine to be broken? Could it be that the spiritual lepers—broken people—will be the ones who will go into the enemy’s camp to transfer the wealth and the provision that brings life to many?
