An Alarm To All Nations ii – CAC Living Water Devotional


Wednesday, June 16, 2021


Read Deuteronomy 21:1-9
1 “If anyone is found slain, lying in the field in the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess, and it is not known who killed him, 2 then your elders and your judges shall go out and measure the distance from the slain man to the surrounding cities.
3 And it shall be that the elders of the city nearest to the slain man will take a heifer which has not been worked and which has not pulled with a yoke.
4 The elders of that city shall bring the heifer down to a valley with flowing water, which is neither plowed nor sown, and they shall break the heifer’s neck there in the valley.
5 Then the priests, the sons of Levi, shall come near, for the LORD your God has chosen them to minister to Him and to bless in the name of the LORD; by their word every controversy and every assault shall be settled. 6 And all the elders of that city nearest to the slain man shall wash their hands over the heifer whose neck was broken in the valley.
7 Then they shall answer and say, ‘Our hands have not shed this blood, nor have our eyes seen it.
8 Provide atonement, O LORD, for Your people Israel, whom You have redeemed, and do not lay innocent blood to the charge of Your people Israel.’ And atonement shall be provided on their behalf for the blood.
9 So you shall put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you when you do what is right in the sight of the LORD.

And they cried with a loud voice, saying: How long, O Lord, holy and true, will you not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? (Revelation 6:10)

Human life is precious, most especially to God, our Creator. This nonetheless isn’t surprising since man had his being directly from, and through God’s breath. The human life is in the blood (Lev. 17:11). This makes it possible for blood to “cry” when shed, especially unjustly (Gen. 4:8-10; Rev. 6:9,10).
To prevent violations, God, as well as nations of the earth in all clime, have set or put definite and rigorous measures in place to seek out and punish murderers. Today’s devotional scripture portrays these in details. The victim is firstly proven to be truly dead, the location ascertained, the elders and judges gather, Levites or servants of God are called in to plead on behalf and absolve the people of the land from retribution, after they might have proven non-complicity or innocence in the mystery death.
It is high time we started washing our hands off and clean from the rampant, incessant, and unabated killings of the innocent in our land, so as not to partake of the impact of the wrath of the LIVING GOD, the Author of all human lives, which is to come as vengeance upon such sacrilege. Bloodshedders will never go unpunished, most especially that of the righteous, just as Christians are being killed worldwide.
We owe ourselves: nations, generations and posterity the duty of unravelling, punishing and stopping it with its entirety, the murderous spree of the innocent before it is too late (cf. Matt. 23:33-38). We must also continue relentlessly to plead “the Blood of Jesus” upon ourselves, homes, nations, etc., for only by this alone shall “I pass over you,” says the Lord.


  1. We confess and repent of all the unrighteous bloodshed in our land, O Lord. Let there be an end to all unrighteous killings in all the earth, in the name of Jesus.
    2.We plead the blood of Jesus upon ourselves, family, home, nation and posterity, in the name of Jesus.
  2. I absolve myself, family and posterity of all unjust killings going on in the land, in Jesus’ name.
