where it talks about Solomon becoming king. Remember that Adonijah had proclaimed himself to be king, and gave himself a fake party, with fake officials and and a fake army. A fake inauguration.
You can read about it in 1 Kings Chapter One. You can also read my blog post about it here
Now, I’m not the kind of person who opens the Bible and grabs a verse for the day. But this time it meant something.
(One other time, when my son was two years old, he ran over to me with a Bible open, which just happened to be open to the book of Joshua – which is his name. That was pretty cool.)
I still had time before going onto the National Prayer call, so I figured, just for kicks, let’s see what this week’s Torah reading is. Well fancy that. It’s Exodus 10 – 13 .You know, where it talks about the plagues against Egypt.
The following prayer is from Dutch Sheets’ post GiveHim15.org
“So Lord God Almighty, the Lord of the Armies of Heaven, I thank you for the power of the blood of Yeshua, Jesus, over all witchcraft and occult. We come before You now covered by the blood of Jesus and proclaim over the worldwide systems of evil seeking to take control in America and in the nations.
“Let the occult shields of protection be taken away from everyone involved in theft, fraud, and corruption. May their occult shields of protection no longer be able to hide them from being exposed by the light.
“Let witchcraft manipulation be brought to an end in and over the Congress, Senate, the White House, the Supreme Court, the FBI, the CIA, the Department of Justice, and over the state executives, courts and legislatures, and over election integrity.
“As Joshua and Caleb proclaimed to the Hebrews intimidated by the giants, we say to all who are intimidated by today’s giants,
‘…do not rebel against the Lord. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will devour them…their protection is gone…their protection is gone…their protection is gone…but the Lord is with us…Do not be afraid of them.’ (Numbers 14:9)
“We proclaim this in the mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.”
So it looks like God is getting ready to do something big!
