Do No Harm To God’s Anointed Ones

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 1 Chronicles 16:22 Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.

The people had heard lots of phony prophets, who hadn't been ordained by God, speak about peace and safety. Here the Lord says, "I won't hold back my words any longer, and whatever I say will come to pass!" A-pplication: In no way do I wish to take this...
