“Then it came to pass, at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh had a dream; and behold, he stood by the river…
Now it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled, and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt and all its wise men. And Pharaoh told them his dreams, but there was no one who could interpret them for Pharaoh…
Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him quickly out of the dungeon; and he shaved, changed his clothing, and came to Pharaoh…
Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.” And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt.” (Genesis 41)
Today there’s one serious problem when the church stands weak before the strong ones, before people in power, seeks their favor, compromises, yielding to them; or she suffers. But it is not always that the church manifest her own authority, which the Lord gave her.
But in the Bible we see multiple cases when the saints wouldn’t simply disobey, not listen, not yield, but they demonstrated their authority. They manifested the highest power to the powers of this earth.
And this is a high class Martial Art of the Spirit, which I want to communicate. That wherever you are, in your places of different levels of work, business, studies, geographically, socially, politically etc, you may look at people in power as the ones who walk under God and have not the authority that you have.
Christ stood before the ruler. He is called the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is lifted up above every power, throne, dominion, authority. His throne is lifted up.
Paul followed Christ’s steps and also stood before the rulers. Daniel ministered before the rulers and delivered supernatural messages to them.
Joseph was raised up to Pharaoh in an instance.
The powerful of this world dream dreams. God visits presidents, counselors, ambassadors… Do you think it’s without a reason that they are laid up with diviners? They seek those who can interpret their dreams, but sometimes find the wrong ones. But there are those who can point to the man of God. We need to pray for those who can be an open door like that butler, who pointed to the man of God to Pharaoh. And God can call a man of God into a high position with a lightning speed.
Joseph was imprisoned as a criminal, but was connected with the right people, and was on watch, moved in the gifts of the Spirit even in jail – he served the Lord their, expecting. He gave the interpretation and prayed, and was set free.
How can we cross social floors, when we are in the low? – Prophesying to the powerful of this world. The church has to begin prophesying of the events. When it starts doing this and blowing the trumpet about the future, heralds the history – then the powerful ones shall hear her!
Because they are listening closely, they one to have the answer. They want to know what God speaks on this point. Where is the prophetic church, which speaks of things to come?! The one that can analyze what is happening in the spiritual.
They shall hear of this, of our abilities. So that they grow in need of prophets. We will give them prophecies about the future of their lands, about their works.
Those on mission in other countries – prophesy. Attain it with God to see what is happening in the nations, and speak it!
There was this man Messing, whom Stalin consulted, whom Hitler wanted dead because of him foretelling his defeat and death. And he foretold Stalin would die on Purim, like Haman. This is interesting – they were in need of people who would tell them their future.
We see the Gentile rulers Nebuchadnezzar and Pharaoh laid up with magicians, king Ahasuerus had wise men; and kings of God’s people Israel had prophets and seers. Do you think things are different today? Today people in power have a drawing to the supernatural, they feel the supernatural and they seek those people who will give them counsel and reveal things. Why isn’t the Church there?
Where is the Church today? The Church is occupies with herself.
Many of those on mission know nothing of what God is speaking to your people. They take most of things from the internet, woven into some idea, which has not a touch of the Holy Spirit. But you’ve got to know, as you are on mission, what the Lord is saying to your nation and land. If you don’t know these things you will never stand before the kings, because what we carry will be only a disgrace.
The ruler should see Paul, who raises his arm and says to the king “I desire that you be like me except for these bonds”. Paul did testify before the kings, so the Lord said to him.
They seek for a prophet who would tell them what is to come.
Therefore begin to move, at your level, in order to comprehend what the Lord is saying into this sphere. You have to receive the Word and not just get inside and tell stories; the Word, which you deliver to the king like Elijah did.
Abraham stood before the great ones, Moses stood before Pharaoh, prophets lived around kings, Daniel over lived many kings, Mordecai was with Ahazuerus, Apostles moved around people of power.
I remember also how one Korean Ambassador shared how he prayed three hours a day and had audiences with presidents, ministers, ambassadors – his testimony broke me. I saw this man, who actually gave pure Word of God to those high position people – incredible ministry. We don’t hear of such people, internet is mostly stuffed with false stars, whose testimony isn’t always true.
But this kind of people of the unseen battle field are very valuable for God.
We need to reconsider, why the Church has lost the powerful ones and lowerd her status in God. It’s the same as not to pray for healing, though you have the authority to cast out the disease, but you simply don’t want to pray or don’t believe.
I hope I manage to get it to you with this Martial Art – begin to prophesy, to receive God’s Word for the spheres and speak it to the people who seem bigger than you. Fear nothing! Declare God’s righteousness and His revelations to them and don’t compromise.
Let us awaken, get cleansed and enter in.
