Robert Henderson is one who truly understands how to pray boldly and courageously ... AND he teaches many in the Body how to do the same thing.
This is a bold and powerful word for us in this hour and reveals how important it is to pray for our nation and for our President, Donald Trump.
I recommend that read this potent word by Robert Henderson, gather and pray for our nation and leaders, and please forward this word on...as it is full of heavenly insight for the courts of Heaven! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
As I have diligently prayed for my president, Donald J. Trump, I have become aware of some things prophetically. First let me say that my mandate to pray for my president came in a dream within a week of him being inaugurated in January 2017. In the dream, President Trump came to me and asked me to be his running mate for the 2020 elections. When I woke up I wondered why I was having a dream about his being re-elected when he was just beginning this term. The Lord then spoke to me and said, "What I intend to do through him will require two full terms. I need for you to run with him in the spirit for this to happen." I have sought to do this for President Trump, his family, his cabinet and his administration.
During this time of seeking to be faithful to this mandate, I have sensed many things. Just recently, however, with a fresh understanding, I have become aware of where I believe we are in President Trump's tenure and America as a nation. I share these prophetic ideas for the purpose of prayer strategies for those who desire God's passion in our nation.
God has led me to Psalm 2:1-6. These verses are heavily prophetic for the season and time we are in. The entire chapter is significant but these verses in particular embrace the scenario now present in our culture.
"Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
'Let us break their bonds in pieces
And cast away their cords from us.'
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
'Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.'" (Psalm 2:1-6)
The first thing the Lord said to me was, "President Trump has been 'set.'" I know these verses are prophetic of Jesus and the place the Father has given Him. However, the Lord used these verses to say to me that President Trump is "set" by Him. He will not be removed.
They may rage and plot vain unimaginable things, but they will not prosper. We see these things happening on a daily basis but they will not be fruitful, nor will they succeed. The reason for this is because God has "set" President Trump. In other words, if God is for us, then who can be against us (Romans 8:31)? We as the Church need to order our prayer this way. We are then standing in agreement with His word over President Trump.
God's Stages of Judgment
The other thing in these verses are four stages of judgment against that which fights against God; those who imagine a vain thing of being able to remove God from our life and culture! This is the anti-christ spirit that is against the Lord and His Christ. This Scripture says that God who sits in the heavens will laugh. The word "sit" is the Hebrew word "yashab" and it means to sit down as a judge. So Psalm 2 is God operating from a judicial place over nations. There are verdicts, decisions and judgments being rendered that determine the future of nations. (Photo via Pixabay)
When a nation and its leaders rage, imagine a vain thing, set themselves against the Lord through the anti-christ spirit, and take counsel together on how to remove God's influence over them and their culture, God will render verdicts and decisions to not allow this to happen. He will arise to reclaim the nations for His inheritance and the ends of the earth as His possession.
The first of the four stages of judgment from His Throne is "God laughs". This happened on election night in November 2016. The night President Trump was elected God laughed. Those against him thought they could do whatever they wanted. However, the Lord upended their plans. My wife, Mary, had asked me what I thought was going to happen before the election. My response was, "He who sits in the heavens will laugh."
This is exactly what happened. God laughed at the ridiculous idea that they could remove Him from culture. I believe many times even the laughter that occurs in the Spirit though God's people is God laughing at His enemies. God laughs through His people at the preposterous idea that His influence could be taken from the earth.
We think that this laughter is God restoring joy to His people. This can be true, but I also believe from a governmental place, God laughs through His people to mock the enemy and to ridicule him. It is actually the judgments of God against that which is fighting the purposes of God. He sits as the sovereign Lord of all the earth. From this place, He pulls one down and raises another up. As He does this, He laughs in scorn at the anti-Christ spirit and its idea that it could ever prevail against Him.
The next stage is God holding them in derision. Psalm 2:4 in the Amplified Bible actually says, "...the Lord scoffs at them and in supreme contempt mocks them." He holds them in contempt of court in the Supreme Court of Heaven. When someone is held in contempt of court it means they have been cited for disrespecting the authority of the court, the judge and/or its officers. The result can be sanctions being imposed upon those who the judge considers disobedient and disrespectful to the court. These sanctions can vary depending upon the level of insolence the judge considers is being shown.
Citing contempt is not just to punish the disobedient, it is also to maintain the integrity of the court. Should society lose regard for the court system of a culture, it will spiral into chaos. Everyone will begin to do what is right in their own eyes. This has progressively become what is happening in America and even the nations. All regard has been lost for the Lord and His court.
This happened to King Nebuchadnezzar. He became arrogant and proud. God let him become as a beast of the field for seven years, that he might know that the most High rules in the kingdoms of men and gives it to whomsoever He will (Daniel 4:32). God found him in contempt of court and sanctioned him. The result was King Nebuchadnezzar was humbled and developed a fear of God. I believe there are leaders in America who have been found in contempt of court. They have no regard for God and His court system. They will be sanctioned by God if the Church will stand in righteousness. God will arise and restore the fear of God to our nation.
The third stage of judgment is God speaks to them in His wrath. Nebuchadnezzar was warned in a dream that judgment would come. God spoke to him. Then after twelve months, because he remained arrogant, a word came from Heaven and the sentence was executed in Daniel 4:30-31.
"The king spoke, saying, 'Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?' While the word was still in the king's mouth, a voice fell from Heaven: 'King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: the kingdom has departed from you!'"
God actually gave Nebuchadnezzar twelve months to repent. However, because he refused the word from Heaven, judgment came. I believe this is where we are. I believe that God is speaking to many and He has laughed at the idea of removing Him. He has found them in contempt of His court.
I believe now He is speaking in His wrath and warning them. If they do not repent then the fourth stage of judgment will come as it did with Nebuchadnezzar. He will distress them in His deep displeasure. The integrity of who He is and His court system are at stake. God will not allow nations to cast away His cords and break His bonds. He will not allow His hold on nations to be removed. For this to happen, the church must take its place in the nations and stand for righteousness. We must stand in the courts of Heaven as a witness to God's passion and purpose.
When we do, we become what is necessary for righteous judgment to come into our nation and the nations. Judgment that brings justice can prevail as we stand in His Courts and plead the case of America. God can move sovereignly. He desires, however, to allow His Church to be a part of the process and procedure.
Prayer from the Courts of Heaven
Please pray this prayer with me:
Lord, as we stand as Your Church before Your courts, we acknowledge that You are the one who sits in the heavens. You, Lord, are the judge of all the earth. Lord, we believe that already judgments have began to come from Your Throne. These judgments are not designed to destroy but to reclaim nations to their God-ordained destinies. (Photo via Unsplash)
Lord, we thank You that You have set President Donald J. Trump. He is firmly established as the one You have chosen. We ask, as Your Church, that all efforts to unseat him come to nothing. We ask that what You have decreed will be the final word concerning President Donald J. Trump. We thank You that he will complete this first term and be re-elected for the second term. The heathen will rage, but Your will will be done.
Lord, You have laughed and continue to laugh in mockery at the enemy, the anti-christ spirit. We thank You that this spirit is judged by You. That which has come to ridicule, You have ridiculed.
Thank You, Lord, that You have found this spirit and those who agree with it in contempt of court. For the sake of Your court's authority and influence, You are setting sanctions in place against those who have held You and Your court in contempt. Let it be known that You are the God in Heaven and You rule in the affairs of men.
Arise, O God, and defend Your purposes in the earth through Your chosen vessels. Let Your will be done on Earth even as it is in Heaven. Speak and bring these to repentance, if possible, even as You did Nebuchadnezzar. Let them "Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and they perish from the way."
Arise, O God, and defend Your will and passion in the nations. We humbly stand before You and request this for the sake of Your desire in the earth. Let not our nation perish from the way, but let it be established as "One nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all." Restore us, O God, we pray!
