Hanna was born and raised in Canton Bern in Switzerland. Life and work led her far afield, until she returned to live there ten years ago.
In that time, it has been evident that the Canton, and the national capital, Bern, are under the Moabite Curse. This is defined as those who are in authority not building a platform for those under them.
This can be as generic as a poor parent who has the desire to build a platform but no assets, all the way to the predatory boss who exploits the employees relentlessly for personal gain.
The war against the spirit of Moab is well under way. The stronghold has been breached and the enemy is yielding ground. This week our focus will primarily be on holding the ground after the victory, but let’s start with one more hard push to take the battle over the top.
There are two classes of people who have high earned authority. First are those who, like Hanna, have long walked in the blessing of Esther, investing their lives in helping others who are not their direct responsibility.
Second, there are those who used to be under the Moabite curse, but found the courage and strength to break out. If you have experienced God building a platform under you with no man’s hands assisting, then you can lean in hard on this one.
Let’s start with Isaiah 25. Camp for a while on verse 6 and following. The very fact that Canton Bern has been deeply impacted by the Moabite curse is the reason God will triumph there.
“On THIS mountain . . . ”
Then move through the passage to verse 10 which expresses the totality of the victory. The Moabite curse will be as powerless as a piece of straw trampled into the manure by a large animal.
War violently for the Moabite demonic structure to be reduced to straw in the stable.
