A Mount Carmel Supernatural Dominance Governance
Elijah’s mount Carmel is the place of governmental power, request grants, executive, legislative and the judicial powers. The Mount Carmel mentality of the nation-saving Elijahs is the place of will-power of governance where all false news, evil, wickedness and their proclaimers that destroy nationhood are extinguished. God looks at such men to stand in the GAP for Him and citizens of a nation to establish righteousness and peace.
 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
Such calibre of men that bear divinity and humanity are the true higher powers that God ordained.
Romans 13:1-3, 6, 7
 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
 For this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
The heaven is God’s throne and the earth is His foot stool; Isaiah 66:1a: Thus saith the Lord, the heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool. The earth and Nigeria in particular is the Lord’s and they that dwell therein.
 The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
God appoints men who fear Him by which He governs a nation.
 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
God rules over the affairs of men
 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.
God sets up gap – Governors as mediators between Heaven’s superior government and Earth’s inferior government. These higher powers ordained by God possess the qualifications of ability and capacity to ascend to heaven and access the mind of God for the people and also descend to humanity’s needs, cares, and makes provision for them.
 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.
 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? Canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth? God bless Nigeria.
