There is an old Chinese proverb that says the journey of a thousand miles begin with _ _ _ _ . Yes that is correct, the first step. It is the first step that always gets you though.
In lies the quandary. The “what if” is always the stumbling factor of the first step. There is a song that states “when you got nothing left, then you got nothing left to lose.” Do you remember the rich young man whom the Lord spoke to? He was told to get rid of HIS STUFF (everything) so he could take the first step. The “stuff” was not the problem; it was his interpretation of the “value of the stuff”.
The good guy was trying to take charge and the “rich kid” would not let him, so he went away sad. When the good guys are in charge, everybody’s happy.
God has a divine order! This order was set up in the Old Testament and carries down to the present time. The order is of course three. In His government it is the King, the Prophet and the Priest. This is what we are going to deal with in this letter.
1 Kings 13:2 And he cried against the altar in the word of the LORD, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith the LORD; Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of David, Josiah by name; and upon thee shall he offer the priests of the high places that burn incense upon thee, and men’s bones shall be burnt upon thee.
The man of God prophesied about a coming king and called him Josiah by name. Josiah took office at the age of eight. However, when he was eighteen years old Hilkiah and Shaphan came to the king with an ole’ white book with gold print on it. You could barely read the words HOLY BIBLE on the cover until you blew the dust off it. Sound familiar? They found the Word of God in the Temple gathering dust.
When Josiah read his name in the book, he tore his clothes. Come on now see this with me. When you see your name in that ole’ Bible that was on the coffee table, it will not go back there or get dusty again. He saw DESTINY.
They went to Huldah the prophetess (a woman prophet, imagine that) and inquired of the Lord. The Lord said “I will bring calamity on this place because they have forsaken me, yet because this King has sought me with tears and humbled himself, I will bring revival in your generation”.
Josiah tore down the high places of false worship; put away all those who consulted mediums and spiritualists, the household gods and idols, all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem that he might perform the word of the Lord. The good guys were in charge and the people got happy.
It was ten years ago in a Warrior’s meeting in Houston, Texas that the Lord spoke and said “when you see the President of the United States of America filled with the Holy Spirit and praying in the Oval Office with His staff, know that revival is at the door.”
Four years ago I was in Dallas at a Federation of Churches meeting when the keynote speaker, Dutch Sheets, took the floor. He began to speak about the experience he had in Florida. This was during the time when the United States was split down the middle over the 2000 Presidential elections. The Spirit of the Lord spoke to me and said, “I will once again speak from a burning Bush”. He did and George Bush was elected.
Now once again, we find ourselves in the same place and the Lord is speaking the same things. I am hearing this spoken by many of God’s prophetic people and they did not get this from me. The Spirit of the Lord is speaking this all over the face of America.
Make no mistake about it; I will speak as plainly as possible. If you are still of the mind that George Bush is not God’s man, then as sincere as you may be, you’re still “sincerely wrong”. I am not saying Senator Kerry has no love for God. I am saying “he is not God’s choice for this hour”.
God said I am shaking this nation; hurricanes on the east coast to earthquakes and volcanoes on the west coast. I believe we shall see another natural occurrence that will signal supernatural intervention. We will see a surge of God after the victory in November.
George Bush will be our next president. This is going to pave the way for a tremendous influx of spiritual prosperity. The gifts of God will be in the forefront, but not the main course, only the dessert. The main course is radical change in the lives of Spirit filled believers. Prayers will be quickly answered, almost as you pray them you will begin to see them manifest.
You will not need to have hands laid on you all over again, just the spoken word. Yes, we are in store for a tremendous spiritual shaking. The good guys are in charge, do not be alarmed. Remember, He has shaken America and will shake America again. “It’s not the spiritual, but the natural then the spiritual”. 1 Cor. 15:46.
Because this President has humbled himself and wept in the Oval Office for America just as Josiah did for Israel, we shall see awesome things in the next six years. President Bush has disbanded the psychic team known as “Stargate” and put God called prophets on the payroll. And because of this, we shall see an explosion of righteousness in our land. Because when the good guys are in charge the people get happy.
We have made the first step on our journey, now the Spirit of the Lord will see us through. Yes, come on now, “when the good guys are in charge. . . . “, when the good guys are in charge, the people get happy.”
