Prophetic Word: God Is Speaking Psalm 110 Afresh in Our Day

by | May 25, 2018 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

The enemies of God continue to rise up to threaten and subvert the godly purposes and destiny of our nation. Those who are hostile to kingdom values and righteous rule are increasing in their efforts to sabotage any godly reforms in our government. The onslaught of malicious attacks against the president and his administration continues unabated, and it appears they will not stop. Any victory that is gained is quickly overshadowed by new accusations and threats.

As believers pray and contend for the president and those who serve in office, there is a command coming out of heaven. It is the same decree that King David prophesied in his own nation concerning the coming Messiah:

“The Lord said to my lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.’ The Lord shall send your mighty scepter out of Zion; rule in the midst of your enemies” (Ps. 110:1b-2).

This is the righteous decree that must come forth in this hour, and the posture of heart that must be taken by those who lead. Even as Christ demonstrated His kingdom authority within a rebellious system, so we are called as emissaries of a higher order. We cannot wait for our enemies to leave or dissipate. We cannot hold back in hoping for some greater opportunity in the future. Our Lord has issued His decree, and we must come into agreement. It is while we are right in the middle of enemy territory that we are called to rule!

Notice the keys in the admonition:

Sit at My right hand: It is only from this place that we have the eternal perspective needed to both pray accordingly and rule righteously (Eph. 2:6). It is from our intimate connection to the Father as sons and daughters that we can see things from His vantage point and share in His administration. If we are not seated with Him, we will be prone to react to things out of fear instead of deliberately establishing His kingdom through prayerful response and appropriate action.

Until I make: It is not our job to make our enemies submit to us. It is God’s. “He sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time, He has been waiting for His enemies to be made His footstool” (Heb. 10:12b-13). God is the one who deals with His adversaries, and it is our job to agree with Him in prayer by speaking His Word and declaring His purposes throughout the process.

Your footstool: He is not just making His enemies His footstool, but ours (Ps. 8:6; 18:38). This phrase means the enemies of God must be subject to His rule. What He is establishing is a place of such kingdom authority, grace and power that no enemy will have the ability to overcome or overthrow it. Those who oppose His ways will have to submit because of the weight and influence of the king’s presence.

To rule is not to lord over or dominate through force. It is a sovereign grace to administrate the purposes of God as representatives and ambassadors of His kingdom. This is what we are to pray for our president and all those in positions of leadership and authority:

  • To be seated with Christ, administrating from a kingdom perspective (Prov. 21:15).
  • To maintain a pure heart and clean hands so that the laws and decrees they make will represent the integrity and authority of heaven (Ps. 24:3-6).
  • To be strengthened with inner resolve and perseverance, even in the face of growing aggression and intimidation, so that kingdom authority is fully established (Ps. 125:2-3a).
  • To be like Jesus who set His face as flint and did not waver on the promises of God (Isa. 50:7; Luke 9:51).

The psalmist prophesied that the Lord would send forth His scepter from Zion. Even now, as Jerusalem has been recognized and established as the capital of Israel, I believe this admonition has added weight and authority. With the embassy now moved to Jerusalem, there is a convergence of time and place, and the administration of heaven is issuing this decree: Rule in the midst of your enemies! This alignment of God’s governing authorities is signaling an increased kingdom authority to rule and reign, even as the enemies of Zion vehemently oppose it. We must agree with heaven and declare this in our prayers and our praises (Ps. 2:1-6). As believers in Christ and ambassadors of His kingdom, we agree together for President Trump, his administration and all those who have been called to leadership in this hour:

Rule in the midst of your enemies. Do not waver or back down. Stand in the face of opposition, knowing that all of heaven is with you (Eph. 6:13). Do not fix your eyes on what is seen, but on what is unseen, for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal (2 Cor. 4:18). Walk in the fear of the Lord and the power of His might (Mic. 3:8). Use your God-given authority to execute justice and establish righteous rule in the land (Gen. 49:10; Ps. 60:7). Rejoice in the Word of God, which brings life and liberty to all who obey it (Prov. 10:29-32). Your faithfulness to God will bring forth an inheritance and eternal reward that no one can match. As you represent the King and carry His heart for the nation, be anointed with the oil of gladness and joy beyond your companions so that all may see He alone is God. (Psalm 45:6-7). {eoa}
