There is a major battle going on in the world today. It is not the Democrats and the Republicans. It is a spiritual battle for the nations of the world.
We as Christians are all involved in it regardless if we want to be or not. In fact every person on the face of this earth is involved in it. We actually as believers are the deciding factor in this battle. This letter is to wake up any that are sleeping and create a change in the world that will last until Jesus comes for the Church. We have something to do with the state of our cities and our nation.
Proverbs 29:2 says, When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bear rule, the people mourn. The common thought about that scripture is when the people in government and other positions of authority, such as police are righteous then the people have it good and rejoice. But when the people in those positions of authority are wicked then the people mourn. There is a certain amount of truth in that but I want to show you something deeper than that. Hopefully you know that we are the righteous. That means us, the Christians. We are the covenant people of God. When we use our authority as believers, we keep those who are visible in office accountable.
Let’s Look at Proverbs 11:11. By the blessing of the upright (the righteous) the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. So a city can be exalted or overthrown. Since 1 John 4:4 says, Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. Guess who makes the choice. Not the devil, but us.
Just like the city can be overthrown by the mouth of the wicked, it can be blessed by the mouth of the just. That includes speaking good things over your boss, the police, the mayor, the pastor, the governor and so on.
Proverbs 18:20-21 says, A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue and those who love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
I Timothy 2:1-4 says, to pray for them that we may lead peaceable quiet lives in all godliness and honesty.
Revelation 17:17 says that God put on men’s hearts to fulfill His will till all His words are fulfilled. I am committed to this are you?
