Let us make Intercession.

“But if they are prophets, and if the word of the Lord is with them, let them now make intercession to the Lord of hosts, that the vessel which are left in the house of the Lord, in the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem, do not go to Babylon.”  Jeremiah 27:18.

Make intercession, paga; Strong’s #6293: To reach; to meet someone; to pressure or urge someone strongly; to meet up with a person; encounter, entreat, to set upon with urgent petitions.


In some passages, it is translated “meet,” as in Josh. 2:16.In Josh. 19:27, paga refers to the extent to which a tribal boundary is reached. Sometimes the verb refers to “falling upon” someone in battle, in other words to meet up with the enemy with hostile intent (1 Kings 2:29). In our text, paga is also translated “make intercession,” meaning a supplicant catches up with a superior, and reaches him with an urgent request. So, intercession involves reaching God, meeting God, and asking Him for his favor on behalf of someone else.

    Intercession is such an important part of the Christian life. What would we do if it was not possible to take our troubles to our God?

    Another great word study my friend…
