Quite some time ago, I heard the Lord say that if the King of kings is not seated in the American Church, the nation would beg for a king. When I heard this word I had a shudder go through my spirit. What is the purpose of a king?
Webster's says: The male ruler of an independent state, especially one who inherits the position by right of birth. Synonyms: ruler, sovereign, monarch, crowned head, crown, emperor, prince, potentate, lord.
Wikipedia states that, in many cases, a monarch will also be linked with a state religion.
If we look at this, we will notice that in the rule of governing by a Sovereign (as a King reigns and rules), the people KNOW who is in charge. It's not debatable. It's not vote-able. It is, however, tangible.
Heaven's Monarchy vs. the World's
Years ago I fell in love with Revelation, chapter 21, and the description there of Heaven. As I read, this majestic pictorial image playing out in front of me, I noticed that just by reading it made all imaginary castles and kingdoms look nondescript compared to "jeweled walls, golden streets, and crystal seas". Yes, this dynamic of majesty was so real, that my own imagination began to soar way beyond any movie that was ever filmed.
I started to contemplate the monarchies of the world. When we look at majesty here in America, all we see is Hollywood royalty. From a distance we see the Royalty of Great Britain. But these two royalties cannot even compare. British Royalty is real with thousands of years in its progress. The other – the monarchy of Hollywood – is a fantasy made up of scripts and sets and designs. Alas, in the USA we have no real realm of the monarchy, nor do we have its rule or its status.
Across the globe in various countries a monarchial rule has been established with success. There are 44 counties that have monarchies. Not all are good. Some are even bad. But they are there. So, how does our government in the USA differ? In the USA we have a government that, as a whole, makes us sovereign in our rule collectively. That government is compiled by all of Congress and a President or Commander-in-Chief. His sole role is to adhere to his Oath of Office. His oath is as follows: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Each player in this government is placed there by vote and not by inheritance. None have an inherited seat. That is what makes our government a Republic, not a Monarchy. (However, as citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, we are adopted in and now are heirs to Heaven...)
I say all of this because in the Word of GOD there is only one form of government that cannot be overthrown nor voted out or conspired against as we have seen in historical accounts. The worldly systems all have their flaws. Even our American Constitution in its conception is able to fail – proving all of God's governing laws would exist supreme.
Why is this important? It is an important background to now release a prophetic word, in the most passionate sense. Our God is about to enable the Church to embark on a new course of destiny! This destiny will find it has its own similar effects as one who abdicates from a rule of government.
"Seat the King in the American Church!"
Yes, the Lord Himself is about to write something upon the heart of the American Church, which will in vast presence touch the nations once again.
I heard clearly: "Seat the King in the American Church to help spare the nation, or she will beg for a King." When this came to me I was troubled in heart and spirit, not actually comprehending at the time what all it meant. I decided to sit and wait. And wait. And wait. Then He spoke again.
It's during this time of uncertainty we see the call and outcry for change. Great change is coming to the "Church." In the next several months, the Lord Himself will begin to place a passion for His reign as King upon the hearts of His people.
Although I heard this and my spirit was excited, I also sensed a stillness to wait. Just wait. There is more. I sat quite still and He began to share His heart with me:
"Theresa, I shall be found among My people. I shall be the lifter of their heads, and I desire to reign as The Sovereign. The Church needs King-MAKERS, not in the sense of all becoming kings, butkingly hearts after the One true King. To be as one with you is to reign with you. Allow Me to be the King of kings," asks the Lord of Lords.
Here is a note of interest: In the Book of Revelation, we see that the kings of the earth will bring their glory into Heaven: "And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it" (Revelation 21:24).
This is extremely important because this makes Jesus King over the kings in Heaven. He is still King of kings. He spoke again: "My rule will never be usurped or out-done, for My own glory will converge upon every place and take dominion. This is the way of kings. I shall become owner of what is Mine," says the Lord. "Embrace Me. Me, Jesus, the son of David, the Son of God as the ultimate King of kings, and be subject to Me. It will be Jesus as the one day King, the King with whom you are happy to join."
The Prophecy Continues...
In the next few months to the next couple of years there will be an explosion of kingly messages and paradigms (example or pattern of something; a model) for the Church to awaken to her original intent.
Prophecies will emerge declaring sightings of the King. There will be vast encounters of Majesty. It will be on the lips of many. This is being released to assist the Church in her awakening. For when the King is present, He trumps EVERYTHING. For THE PRESENCE that will emerge will also be accompanied with supernatural power and might.
This will be evident even to unbelievers. Hollywood is about to develop films of a conquering nature, and the realms of earthly kings are about to be told out in film. A film about King David will emerge. It will be a good film. But, beware of the storyline, for in it will be seduction that will deviate from the purpose of David's reign. Pray for Hollywood to develop this film for David'spurpose, not his lust. Ask the Lord.
Keep an eye on Great Britain, for out of her will come a tale of a magnitude of majesty and loyalty.What was once in demise will now become a surprise..."And I, the Lord, will make Great Britain a visual to be awed at," says the Lord. "Wait and see."
"A King in Tonga will emerge a key player on the world's stage. You see, I am aligning kings across the globe.
"Will you admire them or Me?" says the Lord. "For I as King will give strategies and guidelines like no other.
"O America, O Church in America, seat Me as King and your place at the table of Majesty will be secure," says the Lord. "For as David sat at his table, he covered one who was an heir... Mephibosheth (see 2 Samuel 9:9-10), crippled and broken. Once to rule... now a servant to David. Yet David loved the promise and positioned him at his table, for love covered him. Yes, I love the Church in America, and I will cover you like a hen her chicks, and My skirt will cover you as linen on the table. O America, I will call you to My table as I am the King in the House of Faith. You will see," says the Lord.
Matthew 23:37 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.
Ezekiel 16:8 "Later I passed by, and when I looked at you and saw that you were old enough for love, I spread the corner of My garment over you and covered your naked body. I gave you My solemn oath and entered into a covenant with you," declares the Sovereign LORD, "and you became Mine."
A Plea from the Lord:
Acts 22:16 And now what are you waiting for? Get up...
Yes, arise, O children of the Highest, arise!
Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light (revelation) has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. (Notation mine)
2 Peter 1:19 We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
Our plea back to the Almighty:
Psalm 44:26 Rise up, be our help, and redeem us for the sake of Your lovingkindness.
Psalm 102:13 You will arise and have compassion on Zion; for it is time to be gracious to her, for the appointed time has come.
A Prayer to the King
You, O Sovereign Lord, help me to understand Your ways and Your truth, and prepare me to be Your bondservant.
I ask that You prepare me to sit at Your table.
I pray that we, O Lord, would keep ourselves ever mindful to YOUR majestic presence and supernatural ways. Keep us willing, O Lord.
I pray that You, O King Jesus, would allow us to passionately pursue You in the realm of being Your loyal subjects.
O Lord God, Your throne room is my floor of waiting and being, O Lord God! I behold You!
Make it my will, yes, it is my will, to declare Your ways to the nations and from these borders and beyond.
For Jesus' name's sake, I'm your subject.
