2 Sam 24:22-25 NKJV

Now Araunah said to David, "Let my lord the king take and offer up whatever seems good to him. Look, here are oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing implements and the yokes of the oxen for wood. All these, O king, Araunah has given to the king."  And Araunah said to the king, "May the LORD your God accept you."  Then the king said to Araunah, "No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God with that which costs me nothing ." So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.  And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.




{They were talking about John Alexander Dowie who was a faith healer in the late 1800’s.}


“Chicago passed a city ordinance that said any person that was practicing any sort of medicine, they had to buy a certificate from Chicago that cost $20.  As a matter of principle, he wouldn’t do it.  He said I am not practicing medicine, I am praying for the sick, laying hands on the sick as the Bible tells me too.  They arrested him 100 times within a one year time period.  That one year, Alexander Dowie spent $20,000 in bail bonds and attorney fees because he refused on principal to buy a $20 certificate.  It did something in the Spirit.  It broke something in the spirit realm.  And that’s the price that has to be paid.” 




Beloved ones when you have chosen to stand in the gap, you have poured out such costly, expensive gifts upon your altars of love.  Thank you!  You have poured out prayers, words, deeds... mercy and forgiveness... goods, provision, ample supply even when you were in need yourself.  You gave what you needed the most and you gave because you loved. 


Not defending yourself and being the fall guy to cover their shame... Returning My kindness and goodness in the face of rejection....  Refusing to forsake your commitments even when forsaken... You are My heroes and champions, walking in My shoes.  You have known the sacrifices of a broken and contrite heart.  You have not yet known the reward for such.  Dear ones,  the authority and power of My kingdom is being established in you.  I AM establishing My dominion on earth through you.  Thank you for choosing to love.


Ps 50:5 NKJV

"Gather My saints together to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice ."


Ps 51:17 NKJV

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart —  These, O God, You will not despise.


Matt 9:12-13 NKJV

When Jesus heard that, He said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.  But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice .' For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." 


Mark 9:49-50 NKJV

"For everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt.  Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another."
