During prayer this morning, as I attempted to slide in concern about POTUS and the strife, the workings of principalities and powers and might and dominion (demonic activity), surrounding the highest governing office, I was gently reminded that God the Father gave all authority to Christ Jesus (Ephesians 1:20-22 [AMP], Psalm 8:6). In turn, He Who is crowned King of kings and Lord of lord has given the Ministry of Authority to all who are redeemed, re-created, reconciled and restored to right standing with God the Father by His blood (Mark 16:15-18, Matthew 28:16-20).

Therefore, we (Believers/Christians/Saints/the elect) pray to the Father, in Jesus’ name, for every leader in government (1 Timothy 2:1-2 [NLT], Proverbs 11:14 [NLT]) AND we also stand in the authority bestowed which involves binding and casting down demonic activity in the Name above all names as well as heeding that which is allowed to come out of our own mouth-gate (likely requiring heeding that which is allowed to go into our own ear-gate). For “[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His loveColossians 1:13 (AMP).

Great care must be given to the words that we speak; we are to speak life. In other words, we are to speak in the way of light; in the way of the Lord Jesus who only spoke and did in the way of the Father. For we are in the world but not of the world (Psalm 119:19a); we are citizens of God’s Kingdom of Light sent as light into every dark place (Matthew 5:14-16; Acts 13:47; 2Co 6:14-18; 1 Peter 2:9-10). “Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever, Amen.┬áRevelation 1:5b (KJV)
