PORTALSGATE PROPHETIC PRAYER SCHOOL. SESSION 287.
There’s a God who rules over the affairs of all men…
One of the things that have become more prominent in this season of various spiritual expression, including the unveiling of the economy of God is the fact that people are now noticing the rule, reign, power, and authority of God over their affairs, especially in certain regions and places of the earth where the idea of serving God has almost been banished from the sociocultural and economy of such societies.
This is the day of the Lord, and everyone will have their share of encountering the giver of life and the breath we breathe. How we respond to this encounter will depend on us. However, it is my deepest desire that your experience and encounter of the God of heaven in this season will not be an experience of Christ, who is the Rock falling to crush your sense of false security and pride.
I pray that your experience of what heaven is doing today across the earth will cause you to be broken in humility, so you may experience all that the He has ordained for you before time began. The word of God told us that a broken and a contrite heart, the Lord will not despise.
With all of the experience of the Covid19 playing out across the world, one can either become more depressed, bitter, and arrogant in behavioral perspective, or become humbled, sober, forthright, submission, and selfless to the Lord is saying to the nations. The scripture says, let those who have the ears to hear, listen to what the Spirit of the Lord is saying. So, what is God saying?
Isaiah chapter 2
12 The Lord Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted(and they will be humbled), 13 for all the cedars of Lebanon, tall and lofty, and all the oaks of Bashan, 14 for all the towering mountains and all the high hills, 15 for every lofty tower and every fortified wall, 16 for every trading ship and every stately vessel. 17 The arrogance of man will be brought low and human pride humbled; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day, 18 and the idols will totally disappear.
One of the critical principalities the Lord is addressing within the complex realities of the ongoing Pandemic is pride. Pride covers itself with various veneers that causes people to try to justify their actions and attitude. However, the divine standard of God, playing out through his redemptive agenda, is resetting the platform of human operations across the earth.
As pride brought down one of the most beautiful [Cherubim] creations of God by the name Lucifer, we are today witnessing the same characteristic attitude of pride bringing down many powerful individuals, families, businesses, nations, and including many of those who claim to be representing God and the affairs of his kingdom.
The Lord will never accept our excuse of pride, particularly when we claim to be speaking on behalf of God. The ax of judgment will continue to fall upon the head of pride and the arrogance of men.
Psalm 103: 18-20
…18 to those who keep His covenant and remember to obey His precepts. 19 The LORD has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules overall. 20 Bless the LORD, all His angels mighty in strength who carry out His word, who hearken to the voice of His command.…
It is certain that we are in the days of the great move of God. No one can deny the reality of God’s voice amid all the unprecedented shaking and tremors across the earth. A question, however, we should ask ourselves is, to what degree do we understand what the Lord is saying, and if we do, how are we responding? To what level are we giving heed to his voice and wisdom?
It is critical for us to take a pause and ask yourself, do I have a personal knowledge of this God I claim to be following? Can I confidently stand my ground in defense of what I know regarding the sovereign authority and power of the Lord? Do I see the wisdom, heaven is revealed within the numbers of lives who have perished across the earth through the Covic-19 pandemic or am I among those playing the blaming game?
As I woke up this morning to prepare for our prophetic devotional prayer school, one of the things that came to mind even as I listened to the word of God in the book of Isaiah, is, to what level have we been able to connect to the Father’s wisdom in all that is taking place across the world?
To what degree have we been awakened to his voice, seeing how God intervened to the threat of his people from the enemy. Many today was almost giving up hope and faith due to the level of shared pain and suffering taking place, but how many truly remember that this is the doing of all who refused to follow the way of God’s righteousness.
The message this morning is to awaken us to the reality of the sovereign nature of God within the present global shake-up; the message is to bring us to a new position where we must all ask ourselves to what degree are we responding to the Lord’s sovereign rule and glory.
If the world is ever going to learn anything out of all that has been happening in the past three months, is the fact that all the authorities, powers, and dominion, including that of the unseen realm belong to the creator of the heaven and the earth, and God is not showing the world that he still in charge.
As the pressure of the pandemic continues to reset the earth, it’s my prayer that we shall all responding according to obedience, faith, and hope in God’s sovereign authority. The Lord reigns in majesty, glory, and power. The Lord is speaking to us and we must respond in truth and in his justice, a system called righteousness.
