Governmental Anointings 2
In our article last week we saw that we need a ‘cocktail’ of governmental anointings to control the religious and political forces that will seek to make the church ineffective in its quest to preach and demonstrate the true gospel of the Kingdom to the nations.
This week we want to see how to develop these anointings:
The Daniel anointing for political control.
The Joseph anointing for economic control.
The Elisha anointing for spiritual and social control.
Jeremiah 33:15 NKJV: ‘In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David A Branch of righteousness; He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
Isaiah 16:5 NIV: In love a throne will be established; in faithfulness a man will sit on it– one from the house of David– one who in judging seeks justice and speeds the cause of righteousness.
These scriptures speak prophetically of both Christ and those in the church that will grow to the measure of the fulness of Christ (Eph. 4.13): doing the works Jesus did and greater (Jn. 14.12).
The scriptures say these people will execute judgment and justice in the earth: the nations of the world.
They will taste of the powers of the millennial reign to come (Heb. 6.5) in this dispensation creating a conducive political, economic and social environment for the full gospel of the Kingdom to the preached and demonstrated to all nations.
This truth is seen in
Psalms 144:11-15 KJV: Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood: 12 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace: 13 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: 14 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets. 15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.
Observe that this promise is not just to Israel, but to any people who make the Lord God their God; also the condition for the fulfillment of the economic and social prosperity promised above in any nation is the removal of “strange” children from the church in that nation.
These “strange” children are spiritual children who have been born-again but have refused through rebellion, spiritual laziness and consequent disobedience, to develop the character of God: divine love in their lives. So they behave ‘strangely’ contrary to God’s character. They are “wheat” that have become “tares” (Matt. 13.25) because they have been “sleeping” (Eph. 5.14, Rom. 14.11-14) spiritually.
So, this conducive political, economic, social environment will be brought about by God’s judgement upon the “strange” children in the church through the spiritual power released both for judgment and glory by the manifestation the perfect Zion church.
Hosea 5:7 KJV: They have dealt treacherously against the LORD: for they have begotten strange children: now shall a month devour them with their portions.
Hosea 4:6 KJV: 6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Isaiah 4:2-4 NKJV: In that day the Branch of the LORD shall be beautiful and glorious; And the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and appealing for those of Israel who have escaped. 3 And it shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy–everyone who is recorded among the living in Jerusalem. 4 When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning,
This perfect Zion church will, by the force of spiritual arms, maintain the right political, economic, social atmosphere using the governmental anointings of Daniel, Joseph and Elisha.
A perfect Zion church will arise firstly in every geopolitical nation: made of up of different tribes with different tongues like Nigeria or the United Kingdom; and secondly in every people group, or tribe that have the same language inside those geopolitical nations, preaching and demonstrating by character and power the gospel of the Kingdom to all nations.
Matthew 24:14 NKJV: And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
When this has been accomplished in all nations then the end will come: the rapture of the glorious Zion church (Eph. 5.26, Lu.21.36, 1 Th. 4.15-18).
How then are these governmental anointings to be developed?
By growing up into the fulness of Christ through the development of divine love.
Ephesians 4:15 NKJV: but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head–Christ—
1 Corinthians 12:31 NIV: And now I will show you the most excellent way.
1 Corinthians 13:13-14:2 NIV: And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 14:1 NIV: Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.
We perfect or develop to maturity the love of God in our lives by daily as a habit using the power of the Holy Spirit and Word of God:
1 John 2:5 NKJV: But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him.
Jude 20-21 NKJV: But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God
