The following message has stirred in my heart these past years in the Jerusalem Prayer Tower, applying to leaders carrying a sphere of influence to others for kingdom advancement.
God's word declares that He, the King of all kings is enthroned in the praises of Israel. Ps 22:3
The seat of Almighty power, the government of God comes wherever there are corporate praises.
It is also written, “At that time Jerusalem shall be called The Throne of the Lord, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem." Jeremiah 3:17
Indeed, He will not return to Jerusalem until the people say, "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD." Blessing is the protocol for welcoming Yeshua, the King of kings. The very name Judah from which Jewish is derived means "men shall praise me."
The 24 governing elders around God's throne hold in their hands symbols of instrumentation for praise and worship (harps), and bowls of fragrant incense are also present symbolizing accumulating prayers ascending to God.
At the time of His choosing He takes these filled bowls and pours them out upon the fire of the alter. Thunders and lightning are then heard -- answered prayers on earth.
Praise and prayer gatherings inspired by the Holy Spirit are governmental in nature, affirming with our voices that which is forever settled in heaven. Psalms 149:5-6 highlights our privilege to participate with heaven in this regard. "Let His faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds. May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands..."
Indeed, with our mouths we agree with His Word for change in our spheres of influence that His kingdom would come on earth as it is in heaven. Ps 119:89
Biblical King David reigned in Jerusalem 33 years, being a type of the Messiah. He received revelation from heaven to establish a 24-hour tent staffed by 3000 singers, instrumentalists and Levites supplied out of his own resources to sing thanksgiving and praises to God accompanied by instrumentation continually.
David was called beloved, a man after God's own heart. His reign received God's success and favor. It was David who said he would not give sleep to his eyes until he had made a resting place for the Lord's presence. David and Asaph gave us the Psalms, inspired by God's Holy Spirit.
Amos 9:11 prophecies, "On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David which has fallen down and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old."
God is calling all those who will worship Him in Spirit and in truth to rise to His call, taking His high praises in their mouths as a double-edged sword to execute vengeance upon His enemies.
As thick darkness covers the earth, the glory of the Lord arises over Israel as She arises and shines the light of God in praise and thanks. Is. 60:1-2 Praise awaits You O God in Zion, and to You the vow shall be performed." Ps. 65
It is not by power or by might but by My Spirit says the Lord of Hosts that these things will be accomplished. Even at this hour the Spirit and the Bride say come. Even so, come Lord Yeshua. Pour out your Spirit upon us. Joel 2:28-32. We say, "Baruch Haba b'shem Adonai. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD."
