Exodus 19:5-6 (NIV) Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you[a] will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”
1 Peter 2:9 (NIV) : But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
Revelation 5:10 (NIV) : You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign[a] on the earth.”
“The power and authority of the kingdom, you can only enjoy or use in your daily life when you carry out your priesthood functions with perseverance!”, that was the confirmation that the Holy Spirit gave me when I prayed the verses above.
To function as a revivalist before God, personally we have to constantly experience the abundant work of the Word and Spirit that makes our lives always victorious and covered by the reality of heaven. We are also used by God to transmit the work of the same Word and Spirit into the lives of others with whom we interact. For that, we must
continue to discipline ourselves in order to function as priests before God’s presence. We are priests who will be given authority to function as kings on this earth. God will make every word we say come true. Our prayers will be so powerful and shake the heavens – ensuring the manifestation of God’s sovereign power!
Just make sure, every morning there is always a flow of worship and prayer that gush out from within us. We must learn to enjoy and express the dynamics of the work of the Holy Spirit that takes place in us and our physical bodies. Every morning there must always be a word that we receive from God!
By starting to pray and make declarations in accordance with the word we receive, we are opening, cleansing and making sure that various situations in the spiritual realm are in line with the plans and pronouncement of His word!
Through prayer and declaration, we are practicing the power and authority of the kingdom that God has instilled in us as priests before God. So basically, as priests and also kings that God appointed in Zion, God ordains us to use the power of declarations or to speak words in order to fight numerous works of evil spirits and build or ensure that God’s agenda is realized at that very moment.
Understand the fact that the spiritual realm does have the power for natural realm!
Hebrews 11:3 (NIV) By faith we understand that the universe was influence or make sure that certain things (plan or God’s design) can manifest in the physical realm at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. By us using the word as material for prayer or declaration, we are actually using the power and authority that the King of all kings gives us (His kings who are on this earth). We are making sure through our prayers that all activities and work of Satan in the lives of the people that we pray for can be completely crushed! At the same time, through saying the word, praying, declaring, or prophesying, we are actually manifesting God’s plan to be able to happen in the physical realm or in everyday life.
Give leniency to the Holy Spirit to continue to train our lives to function as priests who live in the authority and power of the kingdom – live as His kings on earth or daily life.
