From Priestly to Kingly Intercession – Part 2
We are part of the new Melchizedek order. Melchizedek was one of the most unique pictures of Christ in the Old Testament. What made him unique was that he was a king and a priest. In our kingly role or assignment to rule with Christ, our intercession does not go toward the Lord, it goes toward the earth realm. It is speaking for Him and releasing His rule to the earth. This is how we express our kingly intercessory role.
“From Zion the Lord will extend your royal power. ‘Rule over your enemies,’ he says. On the day you fight your enemies, your people will volunteer. Like the dew of early morning your young men will come to you on the sacred hills. The Lord made a solemn promise and will not take it back: ‘You will be a priest forever in the priestly order of Melchizedek.’ The Lord is at your right side; when he becomes angry, he will defeat kings.” (Psalm 110:2-5; GNT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Kingly intercession demands humility and a close walk with the King of Kings, so that you can hear His instructions clearly. Draw close and worship Him.
Kings decree and declare. Decree a thing and it shall be. Ask the Lord for a decree to decree.
Kings go to war. Take up the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, for a specific situation and declare it with authority.
“See” that foe of the cross defeated, be it infirmity, hate, deception, manipulation, lying, witchcraft, addiction, etc.
Keep exercising your kingly intercessory role, Ekklesia! Enough of us praying like this can mean rapid, synergistic, forward momentum for God’s Kingdom.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, I humble myself before You in worship, sincerely desiring a closer walk with You. King of Kings, I want to lay my head on Your breast and hear Your heartbeat. Whisper Your plans to me. Tell me what Kingly decrees You want made in the earth and I will make them! Show me the scripture to use as the “Sword of the Lord” until infirmity, hate, deception, manipulation, lying, witchcraft, addiction, etc, are defeated in this nation. Help me to speak forth with kingly authority. Rally the Body of Christ to exercise the fullness of their priestly and kingly roles in intercession, Jesus. Amen.
The Lord is at our right side; when He becomes angry, He will defeat kings as the Ekklesia learns to operate in kingly intercession!
