The power of prophetic praying and prophetic utterances – Part 3
A Time Is Coming And Now Is That Time Men Shall Be Installed And Dethroned Purely By The Ministry Of The Prophets
This has always been God’s pattern. It is only men and demons that had corrupted it but from the beginning, it was not so. Prophets can do and undo as far as the throne is concerned. Samuel installed Saul. The same Samuel took the kingdom from him under the Holy Spirit.
David was installed by Samuel a prophet but when he went wrong, another prophet, Nathan emerged to tell him “Thus saith the Lord, the sword shall never depart from your house.” The reason there is so much governmental disorder is because we lack prophets in the land. I am not talking about the one you see in your church every Sunday that is busy prophesying that you will become a millionaire and own a jeep. True prophets face palaces and thrones and affect the land.
Solomon was installed by the prophet Nathan but when he went astray, another prophet Ahijah handed over 10 tribes of the kingdom of Solomon over to Jeroboam as an act of God’s judgment on Solomon. That is to say, prophets are sent from God for the good of the land but when those in power rebel against the word of the prophet, things begin to get pretty awry.
One of the problems we have in our nation is that we have too many Adonijahs running for office and declaring themselves king. Remember Adonijah was also one of the sons of David. He thought to make himself king. He carried out his own campaign. He prepared chariots and horsemen and 50 men to run before him, He further conspired with Joab, the Chief of Army Staff; and with Abiathar the priest to help install him as king. But the prophet Nathan was not called. In the first place, his appointment was not approved by God and inasmuch as Nathan the prophet was not involved in his appointment, the whole thing backfired and scattered, and God’s chosen leader emerged.
In the Body of Christ, we should know that we are not Jack of all trades. There are specialists. If you are not a called prophet and politicians come to you for special prayer, refer them to men who stand in the office of the prophet. This will solve the confusion in the land. Notwithstanding, in this final hour, God shall put a demarcation between true prophets of God and mere charlatans.
This is why true prophets face a lot of challenges, because the charlatans are many who are mere sycophants, only looking for access into the corridors of power, and are ready to prophesy peace and blessing when God is calling for a sword, and are ready to force a marriage between the church and the state by all costs even if it is to compromise the standards of God.
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Harkens not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. They say still unto them that despise me, the LORD hath say, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto everyone that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. For who hath stood in the counsel of The LORD, and hath perceived and, heard his word? Who hath marked his word, and heard it? Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from evil way, and from the evil of their doings” (Jeremiah 23;16-22)
They do not understand when a true prophet of God comes on the scene with a contrary message. As a result, they will turn round to fight and discredit him. Be that as it may, we are in the days that true prophets of God shall emerge. That is why I say many who were installed illegally by Joabs and Abiathars in this last election shall not last to the end of their tenure.
Hear the prophetic voice of God into the palaces and thrones of this nation, “And thou, profane bwicked prince of NIGERIA (I substituted Nigeria for Israel. You can also put in your state and local government area), whose day is come when iniquity shall have an end, Thus said the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low; and abase him that is high. I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he comes whose right it is; and I will give it him,” – Ezekiel 21:25- 27
Nevertheless, having said all these, one does not need to stand in the office of the prophet to operate in the realm of the prophetic. We all in this season of the prophetic are to operate in this realm. But as far as palaces, thrones and governments are concerned; we need real prophets to come forth. At this point begin to pray for five minutes for the releasing of the prophets into every part of the nation.
