Judgement on Shebna
In Isaiah 22 the Lord pronounces judgement on a man named Shebna. He was in charge of serving the royal household, but he had taken special favors for himself in that position, becoming proud and self-serving instead. So, the Lord told him in no uncertain terms that He would replace him with the son of a priest, Eliakim. Eliakim means, “God sets up.” It was to Eliakim that God gave the promise in Isaiah 22:22.
“Then I will set the key of the house of David on his shoulder, when he opens no one will shut when he shuts no one will open. I will drive him like a peg in a firm place, and he will become a throne of glory to his father’s house.” (Isaiah 22:22-23; NASB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Decree that all of the “Shebnas” in government positions are dismissed! Ask the Lord to promote the Eliakims!
Decree that the above exchanges will shift governmental offices at the Supreme Court, in the federal courts, in the Congress and in the White House, in Cabinet positions and in other government agencies in Washington, D. C.
Decree that the shift in personnel by the Lord will break unrighteous, unholy, spiritual and natural alliances that have caused righteous laws to be overthrown and even distorted the God-given statutes in our U. S. Constitution. Call them back into right alignment!
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, we fire the Shebnas and promote the Eliakims of Isaiah 22 into righteous positions of power. We say that the process now begins that will transform he Supreme Court and the federal benches. We decree “broken” over the unrighteous, unholy alliances of the Congress and the White House and the Courts to try to overthrow righteous laws and the Constitution You gave us! We decree that these alliances must become unraveled and your power is taken away from you! This nation will return to its God-given covenant roots, its true covenant with Almighty God, its true covenant with scripture and with You, Jesus! Amen!
I decree that the Shebnas are fired and the Eliakims are hired in government offices today!
