“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the [noise of thunder], one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer,” Revelation 6:1-2.
There are tremendous shifts going on in the heavens; as the saints wage war through prayers to enact the righteous Will of The LORD.
While we have our earthly perspective of leadership and how things play out on earth; we must also learn to gain heavens perspective; to see how the heavens are shaping the activities on earth.
Much more than the election of numbers in the earthly politics, there is the election of Thrones in the heavens; and every significant political office holder rules through a Spiritual Throne, that defines the sphere of their influence in the earth — and the things they have limit and permission to do.
The Scriptures in The Book of Daniel, Chapter 4; describe Nebuchadnezzar as a significant tree; a tree that had great influence in the heavens and the earth, just as Nebuchadnezzar had seen in his dream, and Daniel correctly interpreted when he saw that a sentence had been brought by a holy Watcher from Heaven, decreeing that the tree be cut down.
“The tree you saw, which grew large and strong, with its top touching the sky, visible to the whole earth, with beautiful leaves and abundant fruit, providing food for all, giving shelter to the wild animals, and having nesting places in its branches for the birds — Your Majesty, you are that tree! You have become great and strong; your greatness has grown until it reaches the sky, and your dominion extends to distant parts of the earth.” Daniel 4:20-22.
Likewise; The Scriptures also revealed something significant about Pharaoh in Genesis 41. Pharaoh was given the Spiritual Throne of a Bull that ruled the economic sphere of nations.
Pharaoh had a dream where he stood at the bank of a river. The dreams of the seven fat cows and seven lean cows represented the seasons of the reign of and through Pharaohs of Egypt.
“Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one and the same. God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is about to do. The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads of grain are seven years; it is one and the same dream. The seven lean, ugly cows that came up afterward are seven years, and so are the seven worthless heads of grain scorched by the east wind: They are seven years of famine.” Genesis 41:25-27.
For Nebuchadnezzar, the tree was a prophetic symbol of the Spiritual Throne he was seated on, with which he ruled the nations at that time, and it determined the sphere of influence his reign would have; whether of healing for the nations as righteous trees represent, or of corruption spreading across the nations as evil trees represent.
The Spiritual Throne a leader sits on, shows which sphere amongst others they will have great influence in, where they will try to enact policies; and what sphere of the world their reign will have its greatest impact.
So when a leader is being elected; and choices are also being made in The Courts of Heaven; as they weigh the choices of men; the requirements of sacrifice; and the alignment or misalignment to The Proposed Will Of The LORD; the end point is that a throne is appointed to that leader; and it defines the direction of his influence.
So a leader, may arise bearing an Economic Throne; like The Pharaohs of Egypt stood as bulls at that time and will tremendously altered the financial landscape of the world, or like Nebuchadnezzar stood as a Tree; and tremendously altered the religious landscape of the world.
We see how, after he had lived through his sentencing for pride; and after the trial of the three Hebrew men by fire, The Scriptures record that King Nebuchadnezzar in more than one occasion passed decrees saying that all must worship the One True GOD [Daniel 3:29; 4:34].
This however, happened after King Nebuchadnezzar tried to alter the religious landscape of the world by forcing everyone to bow down to an idol — save, for the faith of Shedrach, Meschach and Abednego; and the intervention of The LORD being the fourth man in the fire; the plot to enact and enforce global idolatry was defeated.
We see this pattern also in the Book of Revelation as The Seven Seals were being unsealed. The Scriptures reveal In Revelations 6, as the first seal was unsealed; there was the sound of thunder; and there was one seated on a White Horse with a Bow and a Crown, and he went out conquering.
“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.” Revelation 6:1-2.
The sound of thunder is The Throne of Media. The ‘media’ isn’t just for news. The sum of all it’s streams into the world of men is intended to subdue men through controlled reasoning like we have seen through social media wars, as was in the time of Jezebel, when the true prophets were made to go into hiding.
This clearly shows one being given a tremendous Throne of Media; and the ‘media’ being a governmental tool that defined influence in the earth — conquering, oppressing and suppressing.
The Scriptures also records in Revelations 6:3-4; concerning the season of the Second Seal. John The Beloved saw, a Red Horse; and power was given to him who sat on it to take peace from the earth.
He was given a Red Sword; and he rode with the commission to kill and to make people kill one another.
“And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.” Revelation 6:3-4.
Again; this is one given a Throne that ruled through the spheres of men that causes wars, division, racial tensions; the opposite of which is peace, unity.
One with this authority will have his greatest influence in the earth in the wars or peace and this will define the season of their rule.
One more illustration of this in The Scriptures can be seen in Revelation 6:7; when the season of the Fourth Seal was unsealed.
John The Beloved saw a Pale Horse; and death and hell rode on this horse; and economic authority was given to them; to kill with the sword, with hunger, and with beasts of the earth.
“And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” Revelation 6:7-8.
Imagine that! The sphere of their authority was the economy!
Every presidential reign through an Economic Spiritual Throne, will have great effect in the economies of the world, just as the Pharaoh’s had.
These are levels of truth and understanding. The Body of Christ must begin to rise to for what is to come in the days ahead.
We must reach deeper into The Wisdom of The LORD, for the battles of Kingdoms, Thrones and Territories unfolding before us.
Through this, we can actually discern what battles are going on — in the heavens; and have not just a news media political perspective; but a heaven-to-earth perspective, on what is playing out so we can labor right.
The most significant part of politics is not just the numbers or the figurative head, it is The Spiritual Throne and Legal Sphere of Influence given to that figurative presidential head, that determines the actual authority and spheres of life a presidential reign can influence.
The Book of Ezekiel 28 reveals another profound mystery about thrones, spheres and their rulers amongst men.
The Prophet Ezekiel in releasing the prophetic word concerning Tyre, released the prophetic word concerning one he called “The King of Tyre” and “The Prince of Tyre”.
The Prophecy against the Prince of Tyre was directed at the man that ruled amongst the people of Tyre; but the prophecy against the King of Tyre was directed against a demonic stronghold that ruled through the man-prince of Tyre
To the man-prince of Tyre, Ezekiel prophesied in Ezekiel 28:1-11,
“Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith The LORD God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of god, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not god, though thou set thine heart as the heart of god: behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: with thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: by thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: Therefore thus saith The LORD God; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of god; behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas. Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am god? but thou shalt be a man, and no god, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith The LORD God.”
To the demonic king of Tyre that ruled through the man-prince of Tyre, Ezekiel prophesied in Ezekiel 28:11-19,
‘Moreover the word of The LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith The LORD God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more”.
Can you see how significant this is?
There is such an alignment between The Spiritual Throne appointed to rule, the man-prince he rules through, and the sphere he is granted to rule over.
This is the mystery behind political systems and leadership in the nations.
This is why in times like these, The LORD begins to raise up Daniels who can dare to stand as oversight over Thrones that perverse leadership sits on,
The Josephs who will rise to be father to the Pharaohs; to be as oversight and a checkmate to the activities of kings who may dare to wield their authority in perversion;
The Elijahs who will stand up against Jezebel and the weak king; to put their excesses in check and walk through the battlefield of the spheres they are ruling in.
Just as I had explained Nebuchadnezzar standing as a tree to influence the global religious world; first in his attempt to enforce global idolatry; that was overturned by the faith of Shedrach, Meschach and Abednego, the second time, when his boastful pride led him to personal worship for what Babylon had become.
This brought about his punishment. These led him to make and enact decrees proclaiming The LORD GOD as the one True GOD to be worshiped.
I also briefly explained how the season of Pharaohs rule in the time of Joseph was prophetically depicted as the time of the bulls that were determined to exercise great influence, over the global economic sphere – in bringing a time of abundance as well as a time of great famine
This is a Sphere The Body Of Christ haven’t covered a lot of grounds — the knowledge and the battle ground of thrones.
This gives us an insight into what Apostle Paul meant when he wrote in Ephesians 6:12,
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
This is where we must set our hearts win; laboring in the spirit; in prayers, intercessions and actions — as we look forward to the unfolding of the battle of thrones in these last days.
This is a call we must also see from Heaven’s Perspective, as we contend for the advancement of The Kingdom of The LORD JESUS CHRIST in the Bations.
We must not be caught unaware!
