THE THRONE AND THE SCEPTER
1st Corinthians 4:1 Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.
I have been asked severally in the last few days about what GOD is saying concerning the year 2019 especially if you live in Nigeria as election approaches .
First of all i will speak from the position of responsibility given to us by the Lord , to steward and administer shapes and model the KINGDOM of God on earth as it is in Heaven. As an inheritor son of God and Gate to the city , we do not see much change on earth , the trends shaping itself within the current time cycles will continue . The tension we see in the Nations of the Earth is not necessarily caused only by bad governance and leadership ineptitude but by the changing of the Ages. If you look at the world today you will see that perplexity is equalized and uncertainty entrenched across the continents of the earth (LUKE 21:25) these has nothing to do with politics within Nations State but the State of the Nations in relation to the KINGDOM Of God.
WE ARE NOW IN THE KINGDOM AGE [Daniel 2;44] , the administration of the stone cut without hand ( Daniel 2 : 34&45) is very active on earth with intensity , although the scriptures says that the Kingdom of God does not come with observation (Luke 17:20) But it did subscribe to the changing of ages in an observable manner for the discerning KINGDOM SEEKERS.
There is something alive in the Earth today called the Kingdom of God , I dint’ say Church , Christianity or Religion but the RULE AND REIGN of God . The Power of the Potentate and all powerful GOD who seats in the circumference of Himself dictating and directing the affairs of Mankind in other to bend it at it’s knee to CHRIST the SON of God .
Isaiah 45:22-24 Everyone is going to end up kneeling before me. Everyone is going to end up saying of me, 24 ‘Yes! Salvation and strength are in GOD!'”
This Agency of the Divine is very active in every strata of human existence impacting economy and social- political systems of the world . Ancient’s and entrenched hegemonic patterns in the earth is been dismantled and rolled up like a scroll , the heavens of Men is melting with fervent heat , the pain and the impact of this transition is what is causing the outcry and the upheaval we see on Earth .
We are now at the same place in history just like when Jesus was born . Power in its entirety, the apogee of true essence , God in human form was present in the earth but nobody knew it , the wise men of the time who knew about it went to the power of the day ( HEROD) who was as clueless as the populace.
This is the situation in Nigeria today , Church leaders hobnobbing with politicians and power systems thinking it will improve our welfare instead of seeking for The KINGDOM of GOD which is forming in the earth.
THE THRONE OF GOD HAS BEEN LOWERED TO THE EARTH , ANGELS ARE HERE , THEY ARE ACTIVE PART OF THE AGNECY OF DIVINE GOVERNANCE TODAY IN THE EARTH .
But what do we see in most of our Churches especially the Mega ones, the popular ones led by the “ fathers of the faith” ,we see that Mysteries of Christ has been replaced with christian activism and , for doctrine Pastors and Church leaders make political speeches.
In 2019 and beyond we need to BEWARE OF HEROD : Political Power Systems bent on wasting lives because of the emergence of the MAN-CHILD’ in the earth (Rev 12) . Agitated and restless power systems that are fading off the planet will continue to act recklessly all over the world , wasting generations of the innocent because the “WISE MEN” of the day exposed the emerging generation to the wrath of kings and leaders of the nations .
Mat 2:16-18 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men. Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying: “A voice was heard in Ramah, Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, Refusing to be comforted, Because they are no more.”
The scenario that played it self out when Jesus was born is happening again as we see corporate Christ forming in the the earth . Prophets who have soiled their mantle and church prognosticators who are quick to speak from their earth inflamed prophetic unction are failing in their duty by not bringing the King’s perspective into the national equation .
Psalm 45:6-7 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.
There is a global outcry for equity and justice . Effective and efficient governance is desirous and demanded by the populace . There is also the cry of the Spirit for proper administration of spheres and the alignments of the church to the throne of God so that there can be effective jurisprudence and the administration of the purposes of the Lord for His creation .
2 Samuel 23:3 The God of Israel said, The Rock of Israel spoke to me: ‘He who rules over men must be just, Ruling in the fear of God.
Proverbs 16:12 It is an abomination [to God and men] for kings to commit wickedness, for a throne is established and made secure by righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation).
The primary responsibility of the Ecclessia is to uphold and sustain Gods throne on earth , whether the Church realizes this is another issue.The Church that is part of the problem in Nigeria can not solve the issue of governance , we transgress on this concerning the governance of our Churches and Denominations.
When Truth Justice and Uprightness returns to the Church then there is HOPE for Nigeria . Just as there is a cry in our Nation for Justice Equity and Good Governance , Is there not also a cry in the “church” as to how we do it ? Our false concept of governance and leadership, the self indulgent and self aggrandizement of the leaders and hero worship and idolatry .
The Kingdom of God expands and extends through JUSTICE. It is justice : just and rightness that enlarges GODS throne ( and expand the Kingdom ) , not lawlessness and arbitrariness .
Psalm 45:6 Your THRONE, O God, is forever and ever; A SCEPTER of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
Politicians may claim that they are in government but in actual sense the Church is the one in authority , for the scripture affirms that the Scepter must not depart from Shiloh. The President of Nigeria seats on the Throne of Power , But Ruler-ship belongs to the Ecclessia.
