Defining True Governmental Authority
Governmental authority was never meant to be independent of God. Here’s where we got in trouble: we stepped outside of His authority and decided to think for ourselves and do things our way. He says, “I want you to govern for me and under me, using My principles, My ways, My laws. The principles of the Kingdom of God, that’s what you’re going to implement on this part of the earth. Through that, I will release righteousness, justice, peace, truth, order, and life. That’s how I am going to release it into the planet—through your leadership.”
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” (Matthew 28:18; NIV)
“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Ask the Father to reveal His keys to you—those keys that lead to righteousness, justice, peace, truth, order and life. (Hint: they’re in the Word.)
Declare each scripture He just gave You.
Pray Matthew 28:18 and 16:19 over yourself and tell the Lord you want to be a leader in this. Pray this over Christian leaders and governing authorities you know are born again Believers.
Intercede for the rest of our governing authorities, that they would come to know Christ, so that they, also, may walk in the promises of Matthew 28:18 and 16:19.
Declare that the Body of Christ would receive this revelation, so that His Kingdom may manifest in the United States more quickly, as we all walk together in this truth.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, reveal the keys in Your Word to me regarding governmental authority. Give me an even greater revelation than I may already have. I will declare these things, as You show me how to wield Your Word like a sword, over every issue You direct me to bring Kingdom authority into in the earth. I pray Matthew 28:18 and 16:19 over myself. I want to be a leader in governmental intercession. I want to see Your Kingdom come in the United States government. I pray this over Christian and current government leaders. I ask for many more souls to be saved in the governmental arena, that they may walk in this revelation, as well! I declare that many in the Body of Christ will receive this revelation, so we can govern together with You in the spiritual realm until we see it manifest in the earth! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
I decree that all authority has been given to Christ by the Father, and He shares that authority with the Church. Therefore, whatever I am directed by Him to bind on earth is bound and whatever I loose is loosed. The Kingdom of heaven is coming to the government of America!
