I have published the message entitled PRAY ALWAYS, and today I need to speak in detail on the need and obligation we have to pray for those who are in authority.
Maybe the person in authority, if you are a woman, is first of all your own husband.
Qorin’tiyim[i] 1, 11:3 And I want you to know that the head of every man is Mashiach[ii], and the head of woman is the man, (her husband), and the head of Mashiach is Yehovah.
Eph’siyim[iii] 5:22-24 Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Adon. 23 Because the husband is head of the wife, as also ha’Mashiach is the head of the assembly, and He is Saviour of the Body. 24 But as the assembly is subject to Mashiach, so also let the wives be to their own husbands in every respect.
I know that especially here in the United States this commandment is not always kept. We are called to be subject to authorities, and our first authority when we marry is our own husband. Yehovah help American women!
That been established, now let us talk about other authorities, and specially those who rule over us in politics. Our mayors, governors, our house of representatives elected ones, and those of the senate, and of course the president.
Romiyim[iv] 13:1-7 Let every being be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from Elohim, and the authorities that exist are appointed by Elohim. 2 So he who opposes the authority withstands the institution of Elohim, and those who withstand shall bring judgment on themselves. 3 For those ruling are an object of fear, not to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be not afraid of the authority? Do the good, and you shall have praise from it, 4 for it is a servant of Elohim[v] to you for good. But if you do evil be afraid, for it does not bear the sword in vain. For it is a servant of Elohim, a revenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
This passage continues to exhort us to be subject because of our conscience, and we must pay our taxes, and respect them. We also read in the letter of Shaul to Timothy the warning not to forget to teach the people about this subject.
Titos[vi] 3:1 Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work.
When Shaul/Paul wrote this letter to Timothy they were under the authority of the Roman Empire, and Caesar had no piety. In fact if you remember Yehoshua was killed during this time. Israel had become content with them, their enemies. But when they became believers in Mashiach our Messiah, there was a great persecution from those who did not believe in Him. Those unbelievers they actually used their oppressors, the Romans, to kill the Nazarenes, which were the followers of Mashiach.
But the way, history may repeat itself in the future, with such organizations as NAR, Kingdom Now, the Seven Mountains, and the one Global Church that is arisen and functioning now. Now is the time to pray for those who are deceived and misled in the Body of our Mashiach, and for those elected politicians who are not serving Yehovah and believe in Yehoshua.
I do not have to tell you what is going on, if you listen to the news. Personally I do not listen to all the negative, but many times truth, coming out of the CNN. I do not even owe a television. However, I am informed on what is going on.
You may hear that such person is such and such, and you may begin to have hate in your heart toward that person, or persons. Remember that all those in authority have been placed there by our Sovereign Elohim, Yehovah. Be that He placed them for good or to discipline us, His people, who have turned away from following Him, but serve self and other gods. You may love money so much that you comprise your faith, if you love Yehovah at all. You may have murdered your own baby in the womb, either your womb, if you are female, that of your wife if you are a male. You may be involved in illicit affairs, male and male, and female and female, these things are condemned by Yehovah. Do you wonder then if the leadership is not functioning as it should? Yehovah gives us such people to test our faith, and to also judge us.
I am not implying that we are under judgment as yet. But if we do not obey our Elohim, Yehovah, we will be under severe judgment very soon. And it does not matter who is going to be in power, a democrat or republican at all. This world will experience more deception than we are experiencing now. Many of us will receive the Anti-Messiah with open arms. He will come with many promises, and deceive many. He will be a dictator. Read the Scriptures and check if I am telling the truth. Of course if you are not serving Yehovah and received and believed in His only Son, Yehoshua, you will fall into the deception. You will not have any knowledge of what is taking place.
Do you know Yehoshua?
If you do, love your neighbor, no matter how evil he or she may be.
Pray for them fulfilling the will of our Heavenly Father in Heaven.
Every believer needs to repent, and seek the Face of Yehovah, our Elohim Almighty, who for His Name sake, and because of the Blood of Mashiach that was shed for all humanity. By His grace He may grant us the request to live in peace.
Are you ready for what is coming, or will you continue to be the accuser and forget to pray? Think on your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, your whole family, do you want them to be tormented by evil leaders? NO! Then pray now. He may delay the judgment a little longer.
But know that His judgment is coming, for the days now are as Yehoshua said they would be, as the days of Noah, (Matt. 24:37) and the days of Sodom and Gomorrah (Luqas[vii] 17:29-30) Idolatry, homosexuality, the love of money, and not caring for the poor, false prophets, false Mashiach, all these signs are here already. The time is indeed near. We do not know the day or the hour, but we can see the signs.
One day Yehoshua began to talk to them about the last days and pointed to the Temple.
Mattithyahu[viii]24:2-3, 4-7 11-12, 15, 29-31, 32-35, 42 And Yehoshua said to them, do you not see all these? Truly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, at all, which shall not be thrown down.” 3 and as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the talmidim came to Him separately, saying, “Say to us, when shall this be, and what is the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
This is end of the age, not of the world.
4 And Yehoshua answering, said to them, “Take heed that no one leads you astray. 5 For many will come in My Name saying, ‘I am ha’Mashiach,’ and they shall lead many astray.
6 “And you shall begin to hear of fightings. See that you are not troubled, for these have to take place, but the end is not yet. 7 “For nations shall rise against nation, and reign against reign. And there shall be scarcities of food, and deadly diseases, and earthquakes in places.”
( Now Islam is chopping heads off. We hear of wars and fights, and shootings are happing all over…anti-Semitism, abortion and murdering their own children, and children killing their parents and on and on…)
11 “and many false prophets shall rise up and lead many astray."
Who are the false prophets if not Christians? I have heard prophecies that were not biblical and spoke lies about a leader.
15 “So when you see the ‘abomination that lays waste,’ spoken of by Dani’el the navi,[ix] put up in the Miqdash’[x]- he who reads let him understand- 16 then let those who are in Yahudah[xi] flee to the mountains.”
Please continue reading this whole passage.
24:29-31 these verses speak of the return of Yehoshua in the clouds of Heaven. He will come with the sound of the trumpet, and the angels will gather the chosen ones.
The sign of the fig tree.
32 “And learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that the summer is near. 33 So you also when you see all these, know that He is near, at the doors. 34 ‘Truly, I say to you, this generation shall by no means pass away until all this takes place.”
Who is the fig tree?
The fig tree it is Israel. She has become a nation and has become a superpower by Yehovah’s grace. Look out for what is going to come to pass very soon.
The desired revival will only come when we repent. Repent of the sins that have been legalized. Those sins affect all of our lives. Now Christians do not feel the need to repent, but soon they will, and only then Yehovah will send His refreshing. But persecution may cause the awakening.
We continue to read in verse 42: “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Adon[xii] is coming.”
This is what the Spirit is saying to us: Watch and pray for the salvation of those in authority.
Hallelu Yah Hallelu et Shem Yehovah! Praise Yah, Praise the Name of Yehovah!
