PROPHECY - CURRENT WORD
REPRESENTATIONAL AND TARGETED REPENTANCE
What do I mean with this type of repentance?
Let me use it in an illustration and then we can start to apply it. Say there is a theft committed and because I want to protect the one committing it, I stand in the gap and say that I will repay or refund the cost to the owner. Why should I want to do this? The simple reason is that I care about the one who committed the crime and I think that by doing this I can maybe change his heart and attitude and trust God to change his heart and attitude. I am in the place of that one fully identifying and asking for pardon so that a change can be affected. This is basically the story of redemption.
To bring it into context with representational repentance:-
God is the one that is wronged.
God is the judge and punisher of the wrong...
If God will not punish it now, eventually He will, because some might say we are under GRACE. MAYBE THE CUP OF WRONG IS NOT FULL AS YET. GOD IS LONGSUFFERING... So God might just look the other way? Or He will remove His hand of protection so that the devil could have his way? I cannot answer this question because I think that God is a FATHER and that He will act in accordance with His will. But clearly there are forces of sin and iniquity and demonic at play and sin sometimes abound.
WHEN GOOD CHRISTIAN PEOPLE DO NOTHING... (CAN THEY BE CALLED GOOD?)…SURELY THEN EVIL WILL ESCALLATE!
Now here is the thing we can ask from God - ask Him for forgiveness...and we can repent on behalf of the person of groups of people or a company or a nation. Now we are getting closer to representational repentance.
Say there are two tribes and the one has done the other one a great wrong and actually an evil thing happened. There is no recourse.
But if there is one of the tribe members repenting of their sin on behalf of their whole tribe and repent before God then it is representational and targeted specific to the evil and wrong committed. This could change things and God can intervene and stay His hand or the enemies hand or even the laws of sowing and reaping. This is God's prerogative. He is God of heaven and earth. He found an intercessor.
But this is just part of the story...
Say there was no one found within the tribe who did the wrong - the offending tribe? What do you think will happen? I think once a system of iniquity is established (iniquity - an ongoing wrong and there is no change - the offending tribe continues to do the wrong and then establish a pattern of wrong as a lifestyle - this is iniquity.) Serious repentance is required for iniquity.
What kind of representational and targeted repentance is required? None of the offending tribe members steps up to the task. We are busy - we serve the Lord - everybody is doing it - what is wrong with it - it is the way we are- our culture....many excuses ( we can modernize it and can apply it directly where we are at spiritually...)
THE POWER OF REPRESENATIONAL AND TARGETED REPENTANCE LIES IN THIS - WHEN SOMEBODY FROM THE OFFENED TRIBE - WHEN THE ONE THAT IS WRONGED TAKE UPON HIMSELF THE NATURE OF THE OFFENDING TRIBE AND REPENT ON THEIR BEHALF AND ASK FORGIVENES AND ACTUALLY REPENT ON THEIR BEHALF. We can do this because this is what Christ has done. (While we were sinners Christ died for us.) When this is done from the heart and it comes before God because we responded to the call of God to repent...God is all-powerful and can begin to change the offending tribe. Revival can come. Their eyes can be opened to the gospel and they can also repent. God can change things and He can do great thing in the spirit at first but then it will also manifest in the land.
This is what the call is - If my people who are called by My name...Obviously it must start with ourselves personally first but repentance is bigger. Soooo much bigger!
ARE YOU CALLED TO BE LIKE MANY OF THE PROPHETS TO STAND IN THE GAP? JEREMIAH ? JONAH? AND WILL YOU REJOICE IF GOD CHANGE THE HEART OF THE OFFENDING TRIBE? AND STAYS HIS ANGER OR PREVENT THE DEVIL OR STAYS IS LAW OF SOWING AND REAPING? WILL YOU REJOICE IF YOUR VERY ENEMY TURNS TO GOD AND BECOMES YOUR BROTHER?
May God grant us grace because although many call for judgment, we put on CHRIST...FATHER FORGIVE THEM THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING…
THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS CALLING CHRISTIANS TO REPRESENTATIONAL AND TARGETED REPENTANCE.
REPENT!!!! REPENT! REPENT IN JESUS NAME!
A word of warning if there is no sure change when this representational targeted REPENTANCE is enacted, judgments often follows…Many times also on the tribe who were offended. God have mercy! Who will respond to this call? WILL YOU????
